From the moment I heard of Urban Decay’s Naked Palette, I was intrigued… and then I started wondering how long it would be before I actually saw a tester in Sephora.
Fortunately, the beautiful and talented Partymartyw was confident enough to buy this one sight-unswatched, AND she offered to let me republish her swatches and review. To see more of Partymartyw’s beautiful FOTD (face of the day) photos — and fall in love with essentially every makeup item she photographs — I highly recommend her blog.
Urban Decay has a winner with the Naked Palette! I have had a love/hate relationship with Urban Decay over the years. I love their unique colors, but sometimes their eye shadows are loaded with glitter fallout. I am happy to report that Naked is COMPLETELY free of pesky glitter.
The palette comes packaged in a plastic sleeve with a handy travel size of their Primer Potion. I use Primer Potion daily to keep my eyeshadow crease-free.
A cardboard insert tells the names of the shadows and eyeliners. The actual palette is flocked, which might attract fuzz, so I plan to keep the plastic sleeve.
The eye shadows are all full-sized, which is a great value. Inside is a double ended 24/7 eyeliner in Zero and Whiskey.
Virgin is a satin cool-toned pearl. Sin is a shimmery light champagne. Naked is a light neutral matte brown. Sidecar is a shimmery beige. Buck is a medium matte brown that is also neutral. Half Baked is an ultra frosty warm gold. Whiskey is a deep brown liner.
Smog is a rich shimmery bronze. Darkhorse is a deep blackened brown with a satin finish. Toasted is a frosty light bronze. Hustle is a deep brown with a subtle pink flash. Creep is a matte black with tiny silver shimmers. Gunmetal is a silvery deep gray. Zero is a deep black liner.
Overall Urban Decay did a great job with the range of shades and finishes in this palette. A must have for Urban Decay newbs and collectors alike! Naked retails for $44.
If you missed out on this palette on the Urban Decay website, have no fear — it is permanent. It is also on Sephora.com.
