Urban Decay's naked palette has been out now for quite sometime now. It took the makeup world by storm this last Fall/Winter season with the release of Naked 2. Today I will be review Urban Decay's Naked 1 Palette, as I am slightly behind on my product reviews. ;)
The first thing I liked about the Naked palette before even really getting to try it was the whole naked concept. These colors are not bright neon's, but browns, beige's, golds, and more natural tones. This palette is meant to keep your eye looking more natural.
For more information, pictures, & swatches follow the link below...
The Naked Palette features 12 shadows, a mini Primer Potion, & the Good Karma Shadow brush. As mentioned previously all the shadows in the Naked palette are all neutral tones, filled with rich color & pigmentation. Shades range from matte, shimmery, and a couple even almost sparkly. Once applied to your skin each shadow gives a great pay off, and takes little effort to blend in & out.
I absolutely love the names they have given to the shades featured in this palette.
(Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, & Gunmetal)

My only complaint about the Naked palette was the packaging. It comes in a cardboard case, that feels velvety on the outside. It isn't horrible, however if you are familiar with the Naked palettes the metal tin case used for Naked 2 is much more for me. I find it is much more durable & protected, it actually clicks closed so you know it wont fall open in your bag.
Aside from that I love this palette. It is a great staple in any ones collection. It gives you a good base of natural colors & tones, that will work on everyone.
Peace & Luv
