Review: Urban Decay Naked

I know this palette has been out for some time now & there have been many MANY blog posts about it, but I was late to the party getting the palette & wanted to give my honest opinion about what I think.

I cannot express how much I adore my Urban Decay Naked palette. I have us
ed it pretty much constantly since I purchased it & It's all I reach for when getting ready.

It's so convenient having everything in one palette. When creating a look you have every shade you need without having 5 shadows covering your dresser. When travelling you
have every shade you need, whether it be a day or night time look you are creating.

The palette itself is stunning. It's a brown felt/velvet type material with the word 'NAKED' embezzled in large gold lettering. The palette feels strong and sturdy, certainly not cheaply made. There is a large mirror inside the palette, very handy for travelling or when on the move!

Along with the 12 full size eye shadows you get a mini primer potion
& a double ended eye liner in the shades zero & whiskey. All you need is mascara and you're good to go!

Now for the eye shadows themselves:

As you can see there are 12 beautiful shades ranging from the most neutral to the blackest. Every shadow is heavenly pigmented & there is a nice mix of matt & shimmer eye shadows.

If I had to pick my top 5 shades they would have to be:

  • Sidecar
  • Toasted
  • Smog
  • Creep
  • Gunmetal
Virgin would be in my list too, if it was a top 6, a lovely matt highlight shade.

This palette retails at £27 although I've seen some on eBay going for £35+, extortionate!

I know this palette can be a little hard to find, hence why people can get away for selling it at such a mark up, however my Debenhams had piles of them in a corner, so it's certainly worth checking in store before paying over the odds.

Last word on this product: It's a must have for any make up lover & if you can find it, GRAB IT! You will not be disappointed!



  1. I love this palette! It's recently been my go-to product! LOL
