Salam & hello everyone!
Yes, I am going to tell you about my opinion on the Naked 1 palette by Urban Decay after a 1 year plus using it. Pretty late, I know. I think Naked palette arrival were amazingly accepted by many people and I might say a lot of people love this palette and its like a must have palette although you already have a tons of eye shadow in your vanity right now. I got this on my birthday. Mr.T bought me this for me. Thank you! And I have been using it ever since.
As you can see the packaging is much worn out, the gold lettering have somewhat missing and yes, I lost the primer potion that comes with it. When I bought this, they change the edition. The first edition it comes with the double end eyeliner, the second edition it comes with the brush as you can see above, which I don't really use actually. Its so stiff and I don't really like the brush. Its hard to be wash too.
My favorite shades in this palette as you can see is Sin, Naked, Buck and Half Baked. I find theses shades really look nice on my skin tone. When I first swatch this palette I thought I am gonna love Toasted, but I don't know why I don't really reach for that color much often. All shades is touched but not as frequent as the shades listed above.
Lets talk about is it worth the price? Here in Sephora Malaysia, the retail price is RM179. So you do the math (179.00/12=RM14.90+) So each shades pretty much cost like a single eye shadow from a drugstore brand. Plus you get the mini travel primer potion and a eye shadow brush. Pretty neat. But, as you can see I neglected a few shades and I really feel bad for it. (Well not really because I can keep it for future stuff right?) The color payoff for me is pretty good, its smooth and easy to control. Its stay for quite hours even without primer, but much more nicer with primer.
Now lets talk about each shade and what is my favorite shade to use in my daily routine. (From left to right)
Its a light nice subtle shimmery shade that suits for highlighting. Usually i use this to highlight my brow bone
All time favorite for my base lid color, the shimmery is not that bold, and its pinkish peach tone look so nice on my lid. Its super buttery and easy to blend.
Perfect color for contouring. Its a matte light brown shade. I use this to contour my nose bridge.
A glittery shade, pretty like a dupe for SIN but I love to use it for night look. It has a lil chunk of glitter in it.
Perfect defining crease color. Its a matte brown color and I usually use it for my crease.
HALF BAKED :
A yellow undertone gold. I love to pair this with a plum purple shadow that I got in my Sleek matte palette.
A shimmery chocolate brown color. I also love this color and usually use this on my outer corner to create smokey eye.
A dark chocolate shimmery shade, I don't really reach for this shade, because I don't really wear dark bold shadow everyday, but I totally reach for this color when I wanna create a bold dark shadow on my eye.
A grey undertone pink. Sometimes I'll go for this shade if I wanna create a pink eye shadow base color.
A taupe purple undertone color perfect fit with TOASTED.
A glittery black color, I don't really like this shade because I find it chalky and its fall out.
A dark silver shimmer shade, pretty nice but don't really loving it.
I recommend this palette to any girls that want to explore neutral shades. Many said that Naked 1 is much preferable to Asian skin tone compare to the NAKED 2 palette. If you really new to makeup, this will be like your go to palette. Its a nice palette for you to explore neutral shades . The color payoff is very nice compare to the price. I would not repurchase the palette but I would definitely looking forward to buy the single shadow for the favorite shades listed above.
Lastly I wanna alert you guys about the FAKE Naked Palette that many seller claims to be original. Its pretty sad when people lie just because of profit.
ORIGINAL VS FAKE
More info check out these blogger post about the comparison of the Original Naked palette and the Fake one. Don't be cheated. But if you really want to buy the fake one, its up to you but still, the seller must tell its a fake one. Come on, DON'T LIE!
Hugs and kisses
