Urban Decay's Naked Pallet

I finally got my naked palette. I've wanted this since it came out last year. In this palette you get 12 full size eye shadows, a mini primer potion, and one Karma shadow brush. The pallet it self is a beautiful chocolate colored velvet case with the pallet name in bold gold text. the palette opens and closes via magnetic and is fairly sturdy, however if you plan in traveling with it I suggest putting a rubber-band around it to insure security. This palette retails for $48 at Urban Decay website and where ever Urban Decay is sold. If you are new to Urban Decay Makeup and you don't have a lot of eyeshadow, this is a great pallet to purchase. 1 you get a good selection of neutral colors and 2. you get to try out Urban Decay eyeshadow. That is the case for me. I have never owned any UD eye shadows before this and this is great for me to see if I like UD quality eye shadows.
Inside of the palette there is 12 full size pans of Urban Decay eye shadows. All are incredibly smooth and pigmented. In this palette you get a full range of neutral colors from the  very soft and light colors to the dark sultry colors that are great for smokey eyes. This palette has it all and is a great starter palette for though who are just starting out with makeup because it provides all the colors needed for beginners.
Now on to the colors!
Of the 12 colors in this palette there are 2 matte, 3 satin, and 6 shimmery colors
starting from the left we have
  • Virgin, it is a satin finish, pink tone off white color. Great for the inner corners of the eyes and as a brow bone highlight.
  • Sin, a shimmery light pink color.
  • Naked: a matte cream taupe color. 
  • Sidecar: a shimmery pink toned silver.
  • Buck: a matte medium warm brown color.
  • Half Baked: a shimmery golden color 
  • Smog: a bronze brown color
  • Dark Horse: a deep shimmery brown
  • Toasted: a satin pink
  • Hustle: a satin dark purple
  • Creep: a shimmery dark blue
  • Gunmetal: a shimmery silver blue
This palette comes with one of Urban Decays professional quality, cruelty-free good Karma Eyeshadow Brush. It is a paddle shaped brush perfect for packing on the color onto the eyelid. The brush is incredibly soft and pliable with some give. The brush is dense enough to make application of color easy and effortless. It also come with a travel size bottle of Urban Decays very popular Primer potion.
 These are the swatches of the colors in the same order as above

Over all I love this palette. It was become my everyday grab and go palette. It has all of the colors I use everyday and because there is a wide range of colors I can turn my day look into a night look in seconds.
Best investment ever!
