Urban Decay Naked Palette $48
I was so excited to pick up the Urban Decay Naked Palette (from this Recent Purchases post) I've wanted it for the longest time and finally picked it up with a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase at Ulta. I'd been saving it for something special and used it for the first time in Vegas for a Bachelorette Party. There's 12 shadows, the cruelty-free Good Karma brush, and a travel bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion (a true gem, see my review here).
I'm so happy with this purchase. It's full of gorgeous colors, blends easily, and lasts forever. My only complaint, is that the black isn't that dark and I have to use MAC's Carbon for a darker smokey eye. It's seriously one of the best palettes I've ever seen/used with a huge variety of textures from glitter to shimmer to matte. The BEST part of this palette is that each shadow 0.05oz!! Hello!!! That's the same weight as just one MAC shadow for $15. Why I ever waited to buy this I don't know, it's a total steal!
Here's my recent smoky eye using MAC's Carbon in the lash line:
Here's some daytime looks using only the palette:
It's seriously my best beauty purchase to date. The colors are all so versatile! I mean, just look at the pictures, I have smokey eye, a soft pink/taupe shimmer, and a bronze look all from ONE palette. It's the bomb.com I tell you.
My make-up artist used this on both my engagement photos and wedding day and I loved both looks.
Do you have the Naked Palette? Have you used UD shadows before?
