Urban Decay Naked Palette. £37

The Original, and some might argue, the best! I can't argue the case, as I only own this and the Naked 3, still waiting on Naked 2 (hint hint, Christmas is coming).

Urban Decay are without a doubt, the Monarchs of the eyeshadow world, with their Naked Palettes being probably the most talked about products in beauty blog history. So here I am to talk about the Original Urban Decay Naked Palette, as I know you all can't resist swooning over this beautiful piece of kit again and again - or if you haven't seen this palette before, I'm hoping this post can convince you that you need it in your life!

Cased in a stunning, dark brown, velvet covered cardboard, Naked contains 12 neutral eyeshadows - 2 matte browns and 10 satins/shimmers. Also included in the package is a mini Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and a dual ended eyeshadow brush. This palette has received cult status and for very good reason, it's an all rounder. It's perfect for those starting out in eyeshadow, but also great for makeup artists and makeup lovers alike. I've had mine since last Christmas and I couldn't be happier with it. They are the creamiest, most blendable eyeshadows I've ever used and the lasting power is fantastic. They do have quite a bit of fallout, but what can you expect from shimmers when their pigmentation is so incredible? The shades are as follows;

Virgin - a champagne satin
Sin - a light pink shimmer
Naked - a light matte brown
Sidecar - a beige shimmer
Buck - a warm matte brown
Half Baked - a bronzey gold shimmer
Smog - a golden bronze shimmer
Darkhorse - a dark bronze shimmer
Toasted - a taupe bronze shimmer
Hustle - a mocha shimmer
Creep - a blue/black metallic
Gunmetal - a grey metallic

I'd say my favourites have got to be Naked, Sidecar, Buck and Smog, with Virgin being the most beautiful highlight shade there ever was.

Seriously though, how beautiful? Given that they are all pretty warm toned neutrals, it's amazing how versatile this palette is. It can create an unimaginable amount of different looks, from the most dramatic smokey eye to a subtle daytime barely-there work look. There really is something for everyone in this palette, and I'm so happy I have it. Keep your eyes peeled for a review of the ever so talked about Naked 3 Palette very soon...

How much do you love this palette?
