Urban Decay is one of the most respected brands of cosmetics. Every new product or color they come out with, it typically generates a cult following. From their sleek packaging to the pigmented color selections that the brand offers, Urban Decay is always a sure bet. The Naked Palette from Urban Decay was extremely hard to find. It sold out on the website within days of its debut. I finally found one at a Sephora near my house. I have been using the eyeshadow palette for around two weeks now experimenting with 12 shades that are in the Naked palette.

My Overall Thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked Palette:
I am an avid collector of Urban Decay palettes and have been disappointed by very few of them in their entire line. The Naked Palette is honestly one of my favorites out of the whole collection. Many of the other palettes in this line have a variety of colors ranging from neutral to very colorful. I find myself doing neutral eye looks on a day to day basis and sometimes there are just not enough neutral colors in some of the other eyeshadow palettes. This all changed when I picked this product up. Every shade that comes in Naked is absolutely neutral. It can take you from a soft day look with the left side of the palette to a gorgeous and seductive night look with the right side. The packaging is fantastic and very sleek. It is brown with the word Naked reading across in a shimmering gold color. The only gripe I have about this palette is that there are only two matte shades. I wish Urban Decay would have made one of the darker shades in the product completely matte to counteract some of the shimmer. Other than that though, I find myself reaching for this product every single day lately. That is an absolute first for me. If you are into neutral eyes that can go from soft and pretty to dark and seductive out of only one product, the Naked Palette by Urban Decay is for you. I foresee this being one of their most popular products of all time.
