Urban Decay Naked Palette

Urban Decay Naked Palette (closed)

Last week I managed to get my hands on the much hyped about Urban Decay Naked Palette. Urban Decay is generally known for its bright and glittery eye shadows rather than its neutrals so I was really excited to see this palette devoted entirely to tones of brown and grey. Not to mention the gorgeous packaging... slim, sleek, and velvet-clad!

Naked contains 12 full-sized eyeshadows, a double-ended eyeliner (containing the ever-popular Zero and the brand new Whiskey), and even comes with a mini Primer Potion. At $53 CDN, it's a steal when you consider the fact that you're getting over $250 worth of product.

The eye shadows are as follows: Virgin (nude satin), Sin (champagne shimmer), Naked (buff matte), Sidecar (beige sparkle), Buck (brown matte), Half Baked (bronze), Smog (golden brown shimmer), Darkhorse (bronze-plum shimmer), Toasted (taupe-bronze), Hustle (mocha shimmer), Creep (near-black metallic), and Gunmetal (dark grey metallic).

I've been using this palette everyday since I got it and the combinations are endless. The shadows are all great quality and highly pigmented. But what I especially love is the fact that though these are neutrals, they are definitely not boring. In fact, the darker colours on the right side can be used to really amp up an everyday work look to bring it from day to night.

My favourite shades right now are Darkhorse and Hustle, but seriously, they are all great. If you can find this palette (it's supposed to be a part of the permanent collection but as of right now it's constantly out of stock), you should definitely do it!


  1. great review! I usually dislike neutrals but I might have to give this a second look!


  2. i was a bit on the fence about this, but the more i read up on it, the more i want it! i'm all about eyeshadow palettes, i think it's so much cheaper and i love that you have it in one simple package (as opposed to lugging around a bunch of singles). i'll definitely be on the lookout for this!

  3. I am soooo getting this! Thanks for the review.

  4. Did you get this the palette at sephora? I went to the one at PC and it wasn't there!

  5. @bubbleness,
    Yeah, I got it from the Sephora in PC. I called them to find out when it was coming in and then asked them to put one on hold for me. I suggest doing the same since it sells out so quickly!

  6. I got mine at the Sephora in PC yesterday and I went back today and there was still two left!
