What they say: “Everybody wants to look good NAKED! Far from a group of boring beige shadows, Naked Palette's long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals, including FIVE NEW shades, and includes our pro-quality Good Karma Shadow Brush.”
Texture & Payoff: Each and every one of the twelve shadows that are in this palette are soft, buttery and extremely blendable. I would say that using a primer is a must though as they tend to move around quite a lot and fade towards the end of the day. The payoff varies slightly from colour to colour but all are very good and a little goes a long way. Some of the more shimmery ones have quite a bit of fallout, ‘Sidecar’ is the worst and I recommend doing your base after your eyes to make cleaning up easier.
Colour: The colours are amazing and I pretty much use all them all equally. I use these shadows for during the day and for going out - Urban Decay’s only truly versatile palette.
Packaging: You get twelve full-sized shadows housed in a long palette with a mirror in the lid & a magnetic closure. This palette now comes with a shadow brush which is good quality – quite like a MAC 239 in shape and size. The palette is covered in felt-like material which feels and looks really nice but the down-side is that it attracts dust and is very difficult to clean.
Price & Availability: At £35 I think this is great value for money for three reasons; 1. a single UD eyeshadow is about £13 and you get twelve in this palette, 2. each colour is wearable so using up the whole palette won’t be hard, 3. the shadows should last ages because of the good pigmentation.
This gets a 4/5. One point has been taken off for the felt covering and for the horrendous fall-out from a couple of the colours.
