Urban Decay Naked Palette- Review and Swatches

Tuesday, November 8, 2011



That's it, I have my Urban Decay Naked Palette (like every blogger/YT gurus I know...)! This is probably the palette I wanted the most! I tried to resist for almost one year and I am not disappointed at all! I purchased these products with a 20% rebate during their F&F week, pretty nice knowing that this palette is on the pricy side!
Even thought the palette is expensive ($48 regular price), this worth the money because you will have twelve quality eyeshadows for about $4 each color, which is not so bad.

Be aware and check out my blog regularly because I always put some interesting coupon codes on the side bar or in the Links & Coupons page.

I also bought a back up for my most favorite primer :)

    

This is presented in a cardboard velvety casing. It gives an elegant look to the palette, it has also a good size, perfect to bring the palette on travel and each pan contains 1.3g or 0.05us oz of product.




All these neutral eyeshadows are very pigmented, creamy, rich and surprisingly, they are not chalky. Of course you will always have some fall outs but very tiny ones even from bright bronze or dark shades. Also, if you like shimmery shadows, this palette is made for you because there are only two matte ones.

This is a very handy product because you will find all the neutral colors you need for school or work but some of the colors are intense enough for night looks too. This is a go to palette for everyone.


It comes with a small Primer Potion, the original one which is incolor. This has the size of a deluxe sample, but big enough to try out and see if you want to continue with it or change with another one from their collection. 


I just have one reproach to make, this is the brush. I am not a big fan of flat brushes because eyeshadows don't stick correctly in the hairs.
It will work correctly if you pat the eyeshadow, but not for blending or if you spay some water onto the brush, the eyeshadow will be much more intense.




This Primer Potion in Sin (full review HERE) is my most favorite eye primer of their range. It can be use alone as a cream eyeshadow, this is the same pink champagne color as Sin pressed eyeshadow.
I love this the color and the consistency of this product.

This is the deluxe sample which comes with your purchase. A natural and shiny shade. Not the most interesting lipgloss ever, but it was nice to try a new products.

♡Pros: 

+ Quality, creamy, pigmented.

♡Cons: 

- The brush doesn't blend well.
