The recent launch of the stunning Urban Decay Naked 3 palette this week made me realise that I haven't actually featured a review post of the equally gorgeous Naked 1 palette on my blog. Seeing as this is a cult product in the world of beauty it seemed wrong so I thought I'd quickly correct that.
The Naked 1 palette comes in a slim line soft velvet burgundy case which when opened reveals 12 stunning neutral shades, a mirror and brush. The shades are:
- Virgin - a soft beige with pink undertones which is perfect to use as a highlighter. It is mostly matte but has a very subtle shimmer.
- Sin - a pretty soft, shimmery pink that looks gorgeous all over the lid.
- Naked - a matte light brown that looks great all over the lid or in the crease.
- Side Car - a shimmery pink taupe shade that is probably my most used in the palette. It is lovely to use all over the lid and combined with buck in the crease.
- Buck - this is a medium brown matte shade that is great to break up shimmery shades and add definition to the eye.
- Half Baked - a bright gold packed full of shimmer.
- Smog - a deeper gold with a brown twist and lots of shimmer.
- Dark Horse - a rich deep brown which is perfect for the crease and outer eye.
- Toasted - a pretty pink, burgundy shade with lots of depth and shimmer.
- Hustle - a brown taupe with shimmer.
- Creep - a buildable black/deep grey shade with a little shimmer.
- Gun Metal - a deep shimmery grey
Urban Decay is by far my favourite brand for eyeshadow's. Without fail, every shade is well pigmented, soft and creamy. Each is easy to blend and a joy to work with. I love that this palette comes with an assortment of shimmery and matte shades as well as plenty to use over the lid or crease so it has everything you would ever need. Being a neutrals girl I love every shade in this palette and regularly use them. You would never guess from the look of my palette I've had this for well over a year, you get so much product they aren't even dented.
Considering the quality of this product, the amount of eyeshadows, packaging and brush I think it is brilliant value for money. Priced at £37.00 at Debenhams that is less than £3.00 per eyeshadow and that doesn't even take into account the cost of the added extra's I have mentioned. However, if you find this to still be a little to pricey a similar and cheaper alternative to the Naked 1 palette is the MUA Undressed palette. See my comparison post here.
What do you think of the Naked 1 palette? Are you going to buy the Naked 3 palette?
