Urban Decay Naked Palette

If you’ve read my holiday haul post then you’ll know that I recently purchased the infamous Urban Decay Naked palette. I bought this little beauty on the flight to Cyprus as they were selling it for a very good price, £26.00 to be exact! I also won on a scratch card so got an extra pound off it. The Urban Decay Naked palette retails at £35.00 so I couldn’t say no really, £10.00 off is amazing!

I was always a bit unsure whether to buy the Naked palette or not as I thought I wouldn't use it but how wrong was I! I'm so glad I bought this on the plane because I used it every single day on holiday and I've used it pretty much every single day since getting home from my jolly holidays. It's a great palette for using every day because it contains some lovely neutral colours. 

The Naked palette contains 12 gorgeous eyeshadows and it also comes with a travel sized Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (3.7ml) and a Shadow Karma Brush. So even if you're paying £35.00 for the palette, it's definitely worth it! Each eyeshadow works out at around £2.91 which is awesome! One MAC eyeshadow retails at £9.50 so the palette is definitely worth the price tag. 

Here is the palette…

Here's a picture of the Shadow Karma Brush...

I think it's great how this brush was included with the Naked palette because the Urban Decay makeup brushes retail at around £15.00 each. 

This brush is awesome for applying eyeshadow all over the eyelid and I think it would be good for applying cream eyeshadows too as the bristles don't have a soft texture. 
I wouldn't recommend using this brush for shading as it's quite flat but it could be quite good for crease work.

Overall I love this palette, you can create many different looks and judging from the amount you have to use, I think this little baby is going to last me a life time. The eyeshadows are soft, shimmery and they are VERY pigmented. The eyeshadows do not fade or crease and they last all day, even in 40 degree heat!

I LOVE this palette and I highly recommend it. If you do not own the Urban Decay Naked palette then you need to invest in one. You will not regret it.
