Urban Decay Naked Palette Review

Urban Decay's Original Naked Palette

The Naked palette, is the only palette from the Naked line to have the cardboard packaging with a magnetic closure. Personally I love this packaging and wish all the other palettes had this same packaging. It is very travel safe, and has not dented or broken in any way, despite several drops. The packaging however is velvet, and it can get very dirty. I have owned mine for over a year and it is not dirty, but it does have some lint pieces and a few hairs from my animals on it. The gold writing on the palette will chip or come off with wear and use, since I keep mine clean and am careful with it mine has not started to chip or wear off at all. The mirror on this palette is a good size, not a full faced size, but enough to see the eyes.

The colors in this palette are amazing, and all great quality, like most Urban Decay shadows are. The 12 shades are warm toned neutrals.
 From L-R the shades are; Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Dakhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, and Gunmetal.
 All of the shades are great, and I have used all of them countless times to create various looks. Though I love all of the shades so much, my favorite shadows are Sin, Sidecar, and Hustle

If you bought this palette when it first came out, it came with a double ended 24/7 liner pencil, and then it came with the brush I have pictured.  Now it comes with a standard Urban Decay, double ended, synthetic shadow brush. I love this brush, and all Urban Decay brushes I have tried. However, if you do not like these brushes for applying shadow, try them as a concealer brush, they are amazing for both!
Overall, this palette is a necessity in my makeup collection. I use it all the time and can create dozens of looks with it. It withstands traveling and being dropped with no damage. When I start to hit pan on these shadows I will definitely be repurchasing, but I do not see that happening for at least a year and a half.  You can purchase this palette at Sephora, Ulta, and the Urban Decay website for $54.
