Blast From The Past #6

Oh hello Naked Palette you work of utter beauty. This has been popping up on my blog quite a bit recently and each time it has it has always been met with a bountiful of comments from people saying how much they love this palette, how much they use it and how it is one of their stable makeup items. This palette can be picked up for £36 from Urban Decay themselves or in retailers such as Debenhams. Containing 12 pigmented and wearable colours and (back when I got it) a doubled ended brown and black eye liner and mini Eyeshadow Primer Potion you can see why this palette proved to be such a hit. Since getting it I have gone through phases of loving it and forgetting about it. For quite a while it had been sitting in the back of my draws ignored for its newer but slightly cooler coloured sister the Naked 2 Palette but the past few months it is back in my life with full effect.Moving to Bournemouth it was only this palette and my Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Pencil that I took with me in terms of eyeshadows. For 3 months this palette provided work day looks, evening smokey eyes and weekend ‘I made a bit more of an effort then I would during the week but still look natural’ looks (you know the ones I mean :P). Even though I still haven’t hit pan on any of the colours – and am impressed (well shocked!) when I see anyone that has (Corrie I’m looking at you!) Virgin is my most used colour for an inner tear duct highlight to brighten up my eyes and Sin and Sidecar create a perfect and easy work look. I have even been playing around more with the likes of Half Baked and Smog the palettes uber shimmery additions and have found just the right amount applied subtly to the lids adds a different dimension to a smokey eye.

Although this palette can be seen as quite pricey it is well worth it and was my first wake up call to the world of neutrals. Whether going on holiday, away for the weekend or you just want one thing you can rely on daily this will do the trick.

    • The Stila one does look gorgeous! If I didn’t have this one I would probs get the Stila one :P xx

  • I love this palette. I think everyone has their different favourites as well, mine is definitely half baked!! xx

  • I adore the Naked palette. Pricey but worth it! x

  • I don’t know what I’d do without mine! I use it near enough everyday, Sin for the tearduct same as you, Virgin on the lid when I want my eyes to look bright and awake, Buck and Hustle in the crease when I go out. I’ve used this combo to absolute death and still not got bored. Well worth the money :)

    • It’s the perfect combo! Great for work, everyday or even vamp it up for a sexy smokey eye evening look!xx

  • i love this palette i always go through stages of not uses it at all and then using it everyday too, wish when i bought it it came with that eyeliner i got an eyeshaow brush instead :(

    • To be fair I don’t use the eyeliner – naughty I know! It’s one of those pallets that might always get used but I always go back to it xx

  • I think it’s worth it too. I own both palettes and if you think about it, if you bought a mac palette and filled it all with eyeshadows – it would cost more. This has 12 eyeshadows already in a palette and the eyeshadows are great quality just like mac. I use the naked 2 more though, its colours are slightly more complimentary xx

    • That’s a very good point! Good point about the Naked 2 – I need to get into the habit of using that more!xx

  • I seriously need to get this palette, or at least the second one. But I’m the kind of person that doesn’t like to stack makeup and I usually only have one palette to use. I’m running low on eyeshadows in my Too Faced Natural Eye palette though, so I think I’ll be getting it soon! x

  • okey, that palette is seriously a must-have!! it’s amaazing i lovee these colours and these tones. Naked has amazing products. Anyway beautiful blog !! :)

  • I bought this recently on an easyjet flight for £30 and I’m sooo glad I did! just love it x

  • Haha the little mention made me laugh! I’ve now hit pan on three colours.. I’ll be needing a new one soon! Glad you’re loving this again, it really is a pretty good palette! Current favourite shades are naked, buck and darkhorse for a daytime smokey eye :) x

    • I always think about you and this palette! Will have to try those two colours out tomorrow =) xx
