Urban Decay Naked Palette! My take...



You've read the hype.
You've seen the swatches.
Now time for me to add my two cents to the pot!
PROS
-I love the color range.
-Different finishes to the shadows.
-I religiously use the dual ended pencil everyday!
-Aww a baby UDPP! Bonus!
-Mirror in the palette.
-Awesome price for the value!

CONS
-The palette is long and not ideal for my makeup bag.
-The cover isn't resistant to wear. (My gold words are being scratched off in my makeup bag.)
-Some of the finishes are.. powdery(?) requiring you to either spray the brush or a good cleanup later. (After about an hour wear or so, my friend told me I had dark shadow at the top of my cheeks. *GASP!* I used a darker color in my outer corner. I guess the first layer of shadow was absorbed by the UDPP and the darker color didn't stick???)
-This version of the UDPP creased a wee bit on me...? UDPP is queen cement for the lids. Is UD testing a new creamy formula??

Overall I love it, but it's not without fault. I don't regret my purchase, but for a higher end product, I don't want to have to 'work' some of the shadows (a pet peeve!)

Don't want to leave you guys with the straight face above. Below, I'm smiling! I am glad I bought the UD Naked Palette ;)


(Sorry, I don't remember which colors from the palette I used.)

Loving your smile, Kia! Ah, you've just killed a lemming there! Well, I'm not a big fan of UD eyeshadow finishes to begin with so it'd be quite a paint to make them work! Also a pet peeve of mine
