Urban Decay Naked Palette
Now as a treat for myself , i purchased the Urban Decay Naked palette , Im the kinda girl who doesnt wear a lot colored eyeshadows , i like naturals so this palette pretty much sums me up and i had to try it !
To begin with , the packaging i find to be very nice however it eventually starts wearing off due to its velvet like cover and gold stamp font. I would really love it if the new version (which im guessing there will be one) had more stable and protective packaging and not velvet were makeup droppings can cling too. You should be able to tell in my photo below.
Now the eyeshadows themselves are beautiful.
They come in all the nude colors you could want , whether you like matte eyeshadows or shimmery ones .The other great thing with this palette is that you can create so many looks, everyday when i do my makeup i am experimenting -mixing whatever i think looks good and seeing the final result.
The eyeshadow quality i find to differ at times.
When i first tried them out the eyeshadows were perfect and long lasting no creasing. Then one night when i was out and about drinking some alcohol (why am i mentioning alcohol , i dont know i always feel makeup looks its worst when you drink) when i got back to home i noticed the eyeshadows had creased a lot and i was really shocked. So i decided i would start taking notice of it and my results were if you dont wear primer , its going to crease. Urban Decay defos knows what they are doing by giving an eyeshadow primer in this set.
The colors i find get a great score , they are the best colors i have ever seen on an eyeshadow palette.
As mentioned before everything you need is in this little palette which is so handy to carry around with you. They are all so pigmented , you will love them! I heard a lot of people saying they found the eyeshadows crumbled -which they have a point . They eyeshadow does crumble if you dont pick it up with the right brush and the right technique i found.
The flat bristle 'shadow' brush makes things a lot easier.
Because the bristle are flat i tend to press it on the eyeshadow and then gently drag down the eyeshadow to get the product on the brush. Then when i apply it to my eye i again press it on and start sweeping gently , this way there is no fall out and no crumble. If i was to use another brush it would be a disaster so again this is why Urban Decay supplied us with this brush , the knew what they were doing.
The primer i find works very well , but it doesnt amaze me ive got to admit .
It comes in almost a sample size i would call it at 3.7 ml and has really nice packaging that is very attractive. The primer itself reminds me of concealer and the product is applied with a wand like application. I think its as good as it gets but maybe if they can make the formula a little bit better.
Overall what i think ?!
I would buy this again just because of the beautiful colors. I think the eyeshadows make the palette everything it is , not the quality so much.
I loved the brush and i would love to buy some brushes from Urban Decay's eyeshadow collection, they are superb quality.
The primer , i think theres a newly released version of this one i got so i think i will invest in the new one but i would buy the original again , unless i come across a better one.
Of course its worth it ! It loses a point because it didnt match the big hype everyone makes it out to be , even though this is a fantastic palette but the eyeshadows arent that long lasting.
This cost me around 40 euro /£35.00 from Look Fantastic .
