Yes, yes, I know that everyone and their grandma has the Urban Decay Naked palette now - what can I say, I'm late to the party! Still, never mind eh? I adore this palette, and have been lusting over it since the minute I first saw the PR pictures. I have to say, it's quite odd for me to lust over a palette with such neutral tones, but something about the Naked palette really grabbed me. Maybe it's because I work in a school now, and exciting eyeshadow isn't really the done thing (that and I don't really have time to faff with makeup when I have a 30 minute cycle ahead of me).
I think what I like is that this is such a compact and usable palette. It's the sort of thing that would work perfectly for a weekend away - colours which are easy to wear day and night and which can be worn simply or dramatically.
My favourite colours are Darkhorse (a complex black and and slightly green infused brown), Hustle (almost maroon brown) and Gunmetal (blue persian cat esq grey). This is how all 12 look swatched:
For some reasons, my eyeliner swatches look rubbish so I'm not going to include them, but basically you get a snazzy double ended 24/7 liner (see the first couple of pictures) with Zero (black) at one end and Whisky (a warm rich brown) at the other. All in all, a gorgeous palette at a very reasonable price. I think I may be in love.
Available from Urban Decay concessions for £27 (possibly, although it is sold out in many places)
Do you have the Urban Decay Naked palette? Do you love it or do you feel it was overhyped?
