Urban Decay Naked Palette

Woo! Definitely my all-time favorite palette. For those of you who dont want to spend $48 on this baby, think again. Its amazing and you can create endless looks with it, especially if you love nude, natural, or smokey eyes that are not boring! It comes with 12 shadows ranging from matte, satin, shimmer, and glitter, a Good Karma eyeshadow brush, and a mini UD Primer Potion. Keep watching my blog for EOTD /swatches of this palette!

I hate velvet, i dont know why but it totally creeps me out when i touch it and gives me goose bumps. Apart from that weird pet peeve of mine, the case is well made and good quality. Its thin but large so if you ask me it wouldnt be ideal for carrying in your purse, and most definitely wouldnt fit in a clutch. Overall, its cute.
There are twelve shadows in this palette (as most of you will know). Some are matte, shimmer, satin and sparkle. The shadows arent very 'shimmery' if you ask me, even the shimmer and sparkle ones... the shadows in the Too Faced Natural Palette is much more shimmery. However, this palette had a wider range of shades which would allow you to create tons of different smokey, bronze, day, or evening looks. I swatched some of them on my hand and they are all very pigmented (except Virgin).
The new sets come with a Good Karma Eyeshadow brush from Urban Decay instead of the double-sided eyeliner that the old palettes came with. The bristles are soft but firm and pick eyeshadow up & apply it well. It works much better than my Mark. eyeshadow brush from AVON. Very good quality and a $26 value.
Palette also comes with a small travel size UD Primer Potion. It's very portable and has cute packaging, but the primer itsself is very sheer. It 'primes' well but doesnt really serve as a base color other than give you a little shimmer and smoothness on your lids.

You can buy this palette at Sephora,, and when it is in stock. It is a permanent UD product so don't go wasting your money on pricey $92 palettes of Naked on eBay or - it will eventually come back in stock for original price!!! If you really want it, just sign up for email updates and sephora or will notify you when it

So what do you think? Are you willing to shell out the money for this amazing palette?
