Urban Decay's Naked Palette is perhaps one of the most popular makeup products I have ever read about. As a result, I am not planning to ever do a review on it. I have nothing to say that hasn't been said more eloquently by others I'm afraid. I will however, RAVE about one individual eyeshadow.. the eponymous 'Naked.' I thought this might be useful in case anyone is accidentally neglecting this little beauty because it looks.. pretty boring. Even though it's not the prettiest or sparkliest eyeshadow in the world, or even in the palette, I still want to give it some love on here. I love you Naked.. (that sounded a bit weird).
This is maybe my all-time favourite eyeshadow for a couple of reasons. 1) It is matte and as finishes go, matte eyeshadows are far too uncommonly found (Naked only has one matte friend, 'Buck' in the Naked Palette) 2) I use it in multiple ways- It is brilliant for my brows and in my outer corner/crease.
If you're fair like I am, I think Naked is one of the best eyeshadows you can have in your collection. It doesn't look very exciting in the pan at all, but it pulls eye looks together so well and does a great job on my brows. While other colours in the palette initially stood out to me and excited me (Gun Metal, Half Baked), Naked is the one which I rely on daily.
Of course, it seems like everybody has the Naked Palette, but if you don't this little gem of an eyeshadow will set you back £14. That's a lot. Which I suppose is why the Naked Palette is such good value for money. For £36 you can get the palette containing twelve full-size eyeshadows as well as the famous primer potion and one of their Good Karma eyeshadow brushes.
Would I but it individually? Probably not. When it runs out I think I'll just re purchase the palette as there are four or five other shadows I use from it on a daily basis and I am not going to be repurchasing them all individually.. ever (ooh dramatic). Anyway, not to sound like I'm here to promote the palette (I'm not), I will just end by saying that I thoroughly enjoy using this eyeshadow, and maybe you do too, but if not- check it out!
