Urban Decay Naked Palette

I know I am about three years behind on the bandwagon but I thought I would still voice my opinion on the Urban Decay Naked palette! I bought this a few weeks ago when I was in the US (haul here) and have been using it everyday since!

I pretty much only ever wear neutral shadows, having fair hair and fair skin can be difficult as a lot of colours look too harsh and odd on my colouring! I knew this palette would be well worth the money as they are colours I know work for me. I can honestly say I have used it everyday since I got it! I've used all the shades at some point, the only one I haven't used too much is Gunmetal. I have either done a really neutral eye with Sin on the lid and then a darker colour in the crease, I tend to just pick and mix the crease colour so it changes everyday! I then like to use Creep along the lashline instead of eyeliner, sometimes black gel liner can look too dark and harsh so it's nice to have something a little softer. I also use Buck across the lid and then the darker browns on the outer corner to create a smokey brown eye as I look odd with a black/grey smokey eye, the brown smokey eye is my go to look if I want something a bit more dramatic!

 The eye shadows are long lasting and don't crease, the palette came with a brush which I use to apply the lid colour. It also came with a mini primer potion which I used to use but never got round to purchasing again, so I'm really happy to have it again! With palettes like this, there always seems to be one or two colours that I never use, however with this palette I love every one and have used it at some point! I would say to check out the Naked 2 palette as well, I've heard a few people say that they found the Naked 2 better with their skin colouring and others say they preferred this palette! When I was in Sephora I looked at the Naked 2 and decided that the original would be best for me, although I am so tempted to get the Naked 2 as well! (I also would love the Naked Basics palette! I'll end up with no money at this rate!!)

Overall I would 100% recommend this palette, I'm guessing about 98% of you already have this palette, but if you don't yet I really think you should pop out and get it!


  1. I looooove the naked palette so much! Would love to get the other palettes too hehe

  2. I'm the 2% still wanting this palette, but just can't decided between the original or 2! Decisions decisions! xx

  3. I love this palette so much! It's my favorite palette of all time, even though I also have Naked 2 and Naked Basics. I think the colors are so gorgeous, and really work for any skin tone!! :)


    1. I am really tempted to get the other two! xx

  4. I've had mine for well over a year now and I've used it pretty much everyday!Well worth the money xx

  5. I got this palette over a year ago and i still love it, I do swap between this one and the second one but sin is definitely one of my favourite colours :)

  6. I got the naked 2 palette about a year ago now, and I still adore it! Great purchase :) Rachel xxx

  7. Grey/black smokey eyes look really weird on me too! I've found that khaki shadow actually looks quite good instead, like an olive smokey eye :) Over the past few months I've ended up buying all 3 of the naked palettes, I gave in to temptation, I needed them all!!
