Urban Decay 'Naked Palette' - Review and Swatches

Urban Decay 'Naked Palette' - £36 from House of Fraser

The palette came with a mini 'Eyeshadow Primer Potion' (in the old packaging) and a 'Good Karma Shadow Brush'. I really like this brush as the bristles are really soft and it is good for packing shadow onto the lid. I also love the Primer Potion. I bought a full size of this in the new packaging and I prefer that packaging but they both work!

The palette consists of 12 warm neutral shades. There are 2 matte shades in the palette.

Left to Right - Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked.

Virgin - Frosty creamy beige - This makes a beautiful inner corner colour. Not as harsh as white.

Sin - Metallic light pink - More cool than the other shadows.

Naked - Matte light nude/brown - for darker skin tones, this would be a good brow bone highlight.

Sidecar - Metallic pink toned brown - This is one of my favourite colours to sweep over the lid.

Buck - Matte darker brown, slightly red toned - Nice, natural crease colour.

Half Baked - Metallic yellow gold - This is super buttery and applies like a dream.

Left to Right - Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal.

Smog - Metallic deeper golden bronze - This looks so pretty in the outer corner.

Darkhorse - Frosty dark brown with gold sheen - Great outer corner colour or liner colour.

Toasted - Frosty medium pinky brown - This is another one of my favourites. So pretty!

Hustle - Metallic purple toned brown - Great crease colour

Here come the swatches!!
Top Row: Virgin, Sin, Naked (matte)
2nd Row: Sidecar, Buck (matte), Half Baked
3rd Row: Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted
Bottom Row: Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal

- Quality. The shadows are all really pigmented and buttery. They blend really well too!!
-Wearability. These shadows are all really wearable. I don't use Creep or Gunmetal as much as the other colours but that's just personal preference.
- Packaging. Magnetic flip-up lid with a mirror. Sturdy - Good for travelling.

- Price£36 is quite a lot to pay for some eyeshadow. However, that makes it £3 per shadow so it is good value for money if you look at it like that.

Packaging: 5/5
Feels really sturdy but is still easy to open.

Product: 5/5
I seem to reach for this all the time when applying eyeshadow. The shade selection is amazing. Perfect for everyday and special occasions. Shadows are good quality. Blend easily and are the perfect texture.

Price: 3/5
It is a lot of money for a one off purchase but if you think about it, it is really good value for money. It is just a lot of money to be paying at one time...

Tell me what you think of the Naked Palette in the comments!
Thanks for reading. xoxo

  1. I absolutely love this, as well as all of the Urban decay palette's! I've got quite a few now lol! It's just the perfect palette! xo

  2. I really want this, particularly for Sin and Toasted. So sad we don't have Urban Decay in Australia...we are deprived. Thinking of buying it off BeautyBay though. Have you tried the Naked 2 palette, if so which do you prefer?

  3. Yeah, they are beautiful. That sucks. I haven't tried the Naked 2 palette so I can't say.
