Urban Decay Naked Palette Review: Is The Original The Best?

Urban Decay Original Naked Palette

I know I’m behind the times when it comes to trying certain beauty products, but one product I’m really slow off the mark when it has come to getting my hands on is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. But I finally picked it up and I’m so happy that I did!

After being a big fan of the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (which I’ve talked about briefly in this post) for a couple of years, and having bought a few Urban Decay palettes since, including the Gwen Stefani Palette, the Full Spectrum Palette and the Moondust Palette, it seemed only right that I picked up the original.

Inside the Original Urban Decay Naked Palette

Full of warm neutrals, this palette has been out for over six years now and is definitely a staple in many makeup lovers’ collections. With shadows that mainly complement a bronze toned eye look, it’s a palette that you really can’t got wrong with.

This palette obviously contains shadows with the quality that we’ve come to expect from Urban Decay – buttery, easy to blend and super versatile. If you’re after a really natural eye look, you can blend Buck through the crease; if you’re after something a little more smokey then you’ve got Creep to pack into the outer v.

Urban Decay Naked Swatches

Virgin is a pale, shimmery nude beige (so pale that it doesn’t show up on my ghosty skin); Sin is a champagne with a frost finish; Naked is a matte medium tan; Sidecar is a shimmery medium bronze; Buck is a matte medium brown; Half-Baked is a gold shimmer (also found in Naked 2); Smog is a medium bronze with a beautiful sheen; Darkhorse is a chocolate brown with bronze shimmer; Toasted is a medium pink-brown shimmer, almost rose gold in tone; Hustle is a plum-chocolate brown with a slight shimmer; Creep is a blue-black with silver shimmer; and Gunemtal is a blue-grey metallic shade.

It’s a stunning palette and I’m so happy to have this in my collection. But now I feel like I need to complete the collection with Urban Decay Naked 3 (I own Urban Decay Naked Smoky, but I’ve never really talked about it on here), but I’m not sure if I’d use the pink tones. We’ll see!

If you’ve not got this palette already, what are you waiting for? Pick it up for £38.50 and fall in love the same way that I have. If Urban Decay didn’t have my heart already, they sure do now. And if you have another palette I must add into my collection, let me know!
