Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette

18th January 2016

Hi Everyone!

I’m not a regular wearer of eyeshadow by all means. On a daily basis for work etc I tend to just wear mascara and a little inner corner highlight on my eyes. However, when I’m going out for an occasion or on a night out, I do like a good ol’ dramatic eye look.

My collection is small, but it’s also my pride and joy. I only own 4 palettes (Nude Tude by The Balm, Naked 1, Naked Smokey and UD Vice 3 if you’re interested) but they do the trick and I can’t see myself investing in any new shadows unless I absolutely 100% fell in love with one.

So, I have decided to share with you my favourite palette of all time. I go back to this palette regularly and tend to stick with what I know, but I’m hoping I’ll get brave enough to experiment a bit more with different looks.




A classic from Urban Decay, the Naked palette was the first high-end makeup products I ever received (Christmas 2014 if you’re wondering, I’m only a newbie to this makeup game; I didn’t start to wear foundation until I turned 18 but that’s a story for another day.)

It’s sturdy packaging and magnetic case proves it can handle living in a handbag. The amount of times it’s been to and from in my bag is unbelievable, it may as well live in there permanently. So straight away, there’s a big thumbs up for UD.

With 12 shades, from neutral mattes to shimmer and sparkle, there’s a shade for everyone.

I usually apply my eye shadow before the rest of my makeup to ensure any fallout can be wiped away and doesn’t ruin my foundation/concealer. I find the fallout from Naked is minimal, with only the darker colours leaving any mess. But, it’s easily dusted away with a brush or  a face wipe. Each shadow is extremely pigmented and I find that I don’t need to build up the colours.

My go-to combo with this palette is sidecar, buck, hustle and half-baked. But on occasion I have been known to use whatever shades I feel like and hope for the best. I am in no way an eye shadow expert. Nevertheless, if you would be interested in seeing my go-to look for a night out etc, let me know and I’ll be happy to write a post on it.

Some people don’t like the brush the palette comes with, but I really like it and thinks it works a treat. But, like I said, I don’t have much knowledge on these things but it works for me!

Retailing at £38, the palette is more on the pricey side of things, but the quality of the product as a whole makes the price worth it. You can create so many different looks from just 12 shades, from neutral everyday to a dramatic smokey eye, there’s a lot you can do.

I have a lot of love for Urban Decay and their products and they are definitely in my top 3 high-end makeup brands.

Which is your favourite palette from the Urban Decay Naked collection?

    I have had my naked palette for years and it gets so much use. I got the naked 2 for Xmas and think I may like that even more! There’s not as many dark shades so I get more use out of it. I’ll be doing a review on my blog soon 😊 xx
