Urban Decay Naked might be old news to some people already, but it’s still new to me.
Let’s talk about how fabulous this packaging is for a second, shall we? Sleek, thin, lightweight and sophisticated are words that come to mind. Their other palettes have been “cute” but in my opinion, totally unnecessary. They were packed with way too much gimmick (and cardboard) and took up too much space. I mean there is no way I would ever travel with the Book of Shadows II palette! But this one is SO much better!
The Naked palette is filled with twelve fabulous colors, all very wearable. While a few of these are ones we have seen before (re-packaged for this palette) there are some nice new choices as well.
Not only do we have twelve eyeshadows, they also give you a double-ended eyeliner featuring their 24/7 liners in Zero (jet black) and Whiskey (medium brown). It also comes with a mini-sized tube of their Primer Potion (which isn’t inside the palette, it just comes with it).
The colors in Naked that are already part of their permanent line are: Sin, Naked, Half Baked, Smog, Toasted and Gunmetal.
Urban Decay eyeshadows have long been some of my favs, in fact, I still have some from 15 years ago! The texture and opacity of them is what always keeps me coming back. These are just as great as others I own by them. All of these have great color payoff, great consistency, blend easily and not much fallout.
Virgin is a very light nude
Sin is a pale pink/champagne
Naked is a matte medium brown

The Urban Decay Naked palette is $44.00 which might seem expensive until you read this. These are all full sized eyeshadows. Normally a single full sized eyeshadow from them is $17.00. So you are getting a really good value, if you like most of the colors and don’t already own them.
Have you caved and bought this one yet? What do you think about it?
