Facepaint: Urban Decay Naked Palette

Succumbed and finally bought the much-raved about Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette:

Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette has twelve full sized neutral eye shadows in different finishes: matte, satin and shimmer. Thank goodness the shimmer is not OTT. The shades are mostly warm and would suit any skin color. It came with the Good Karma eye shadow brush and a mini-sized Eye Primer Potion. I'm generally happy with this purchase, as I could open just one palette to do an eye makeup routine instead of having several palettes and pans on my vanity. Also, since its my first time to try UD's eyeshadows, I am so amazed how this trumps most other products out there texture-wise. It's so buttery smooth! My only gripe is that I wish it still came with the dual-ended 24/7 eyeliner instead of the brush. Due to high demand versus manufacturing constraints last year, UD decided to make these with an eye shadow brush. Another wish on my end (as if UD will listen to my demands, haha): I hope they make a neutral palette with more cool tones, too. Oh, also a palette like Too Faced's that's all matte.

I would highly recommend this for ladies who likes their eye paint wearable and subtle. This could also be used for a strong eye by defining more with the dark colors. This would be all you need to get you through a work-to-party day.

Will play around with this baby and post some EOTDs soon ;)


  1. Since the release of this palette, I have been wanting to get one. But I figured I should just avoid buying eyeshadow palettes 'cause I rarely use them.. :( My UD Book of Shadows 3 was barely used (only twice?) even if I have it for a year already.. T__T Those colors from the Naked palette look so lovely though.. :)

  2. I know what you mean, Sumi. It takes much more effort to add eyeshadow to the usual makeup routine. I'm usually just a powder foundi+blush+lipstick/tinted balm girl, but this palette has a very wearable mix of colors it's too good to pass up ;) I like to think this is makeup's equivalent of a classic. Like a good pair of jeans, or a classic white shirt... I believe every woman should own a neutral palette like this. :D
