Review & Swatches: Urban Decay Naked Palette

If you've been around in the blogsphere, I don't need to say how famous and highly raved this eyeshadow palette is. It has been forever Out-Of-Stock in Sephora, Urban Decay, Ulta and etc. Thanks to Ryan!! I finally get my hands on the elusive Urban Decay Naked Palette ($44). It's my first palette from Urban Decay after all!!

This Urban Decay palette come with 12 beautiful neutral colors in a gorgeous brown velvet cupboard mirrored package. This includes 12 full size eyeshadow, double-ended 24/7 liner pencil with Zero (black) and Whiskey (dark reddish brown) and one travel size UD Primer Potion.


Isn't it worth for the price tag? Although I got this for almost US$54 and I'm still happy with it. (Well, it is not available locally so I gonna get it at higher price) 
Honestly when I first received the palette I'm not attracted to the eyeshadow by looking at it until I swatched it. OMG!!! It was so pretty, pigmented and smooth. The eyeshadow even lasted me for more than 6hours without using UDPP as base. Amazing huh?
Urban Decay Naked Palette: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck
Urban Decay Naked Palette: Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle
Urban Decay Naked Palette: Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal
Swatches on my NC25- NC30 hand:
Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal

The palette also contains a double-ended eyeliner, and Zero, the basic creamy black and Whiskey a brand new shade of creamy chocolate brown with red undertones. I finally understand why most people love Urban Decay 24/7 liner. It glides on my lid so smooth!!! Although it tends to smudge on me without primer, but with primer it goes good.

Urban Decay Naked Palette: Zero 24/7 Liner
Urban Decay Naked Palette: Whiskey 24/7 Liner
Urban Decay Naked Palette: Whiskey, Zero
My verdict:
If you’re an eyeshadow lover, Urban Decay’s Naked palette is one that you should own! The shimmery and matte combination shade is all you want for a neutrals and even dark smoky look. If you're having headache on bringing what eyeshadow for travel, I could say this is the best solution. Eyeshadows, liner and base in one.
This UD Naked palette is not limited edition. Therefore, it is unnecessary for you to get this in ebay for more than the price tag. :)

Rating: 5/5 

I love this palette!!! Do you?

Update: You may get it in Sephora Singapore for $74 and Sephora Malaysia for RM175 (with the new packaging with eyeshadow brush)

the NAKED palette name already grabbed my attention, then the shades on it so extensive and portable for travel. Love the colors on it.. I'm not an eyeshadow person but if i was this is also one of the palettes I would die die... get like u! Sin is such a nice nude/kitten like color. Ah... u must be over in heaven with this :)

Yer.. It looks so nice >_< I love neutrals! But the price is definitely too much for me =( sumore I just scratched someone's car so gotta pay her. How much was it in RM?

Cynthia Loh said...

It's one of my eyeshadow palette I always use now!! Get yourself one!! :)

Cynthia Loh said...

OMG!! Are you ok? I bought this about RM180- it's kinda pricey but its all worth it.

Cynthia Loh said...

Buy Buy!!

Cynthia Loh said...

It is now permanent for Urban Decay. :)

Cynthia Loh said...

It is now on permanent line. But I do see that it is still highly in demand. Try getting this in future when almost everyone have it. :)

damn i wanna buy this!

Maypearls said...

OMG! I MUST have thissss!! is it a limited edition kind? =s

Think it's worth it, comes up to RM15 per eyeshadow -- that's not taking into account the other items like 2 mini eyeliners and UDPP. So just approximately RM10 each e/s? Can't quite beat that.

Still hesitate to get it as have enough eyeshadows for now but every time see it online, still want it so badly! Have to save now ...

Thanks for all the pics and swatches Cynthia :D
