…Urban Decay’s Naked Palette!!

Since it hit the beauty scene in June I have been on the hunt for this palette of eye shadows.  I have been to every Urban Decay store and Sephora from here to Timbucktoo.  It’s been sold out since it was distributed.  I have been told it will be back in stock to the major stores (for me thats Boston which is about an hour away) in January.  I am dubious.

This palette contains 12 full sized UD shadows.  Ten of them are shimmery (NOT glittery) and two are matte shades.  Here is the break-down of the shades (straight from

  • Virgin is a “satin chamois.” It seems very light to me, but could be a great highlight color.
  • Sin is “champagne”.  This is a UD permanent shadow.
  • Naked is a “matte buff nude”.  This looks to be a great crease color or blending color.  This is also a UD permanent shadow.
  • Sidecar is a “cocoa with golden sparkle sheen”. BEAUTIFUL!!
  • Buck is a “matte nutmeg”.  Pretty self explanatory, but could be a great matte outer ‘V’ color.
  • Half Baked is a “subtle, lustrous bronze”.  This is a UD permanent shadow.
  • Smog is a “deep coppery bronze”.  I am pretty pumped about this shade
  • Darkhorse is a “bronze patina”.
  • Toasted is a “rich copper”.  Although it looks more pink-ish to me. IN LOVE!  This is a UD permanent shadow.
  • Hustle is a “plum brown satin”. This is the one shade I am most excited about.  It’s gorgeous.
  • Creep is an “onyx with gold sparkle”. Not sure about the gold part, but YES YES YES!
  • Gunmetal is a “gunmetal gray with silver glitter”.

And to top it all off…there are TWO extras!  This palette comes with a double-ended UD 24/7 eyeliner.  Zero (black) is on one side and Whiskey (brown) is on the other.  And a travel size UD Primer Potion.  All for a low low price of $44!

What I think sets this apart from any other neutral palette is the fact that it has browns, golds, and silver/greys.  That is so unique from anything I have seen on the market.  I recently bought the Tarte Femme Naturale and it has some great pinks and neutral browns but its really missing a great grey or taupe. (Review on its way…promise).

What’s left to say about this palette except that I WANT IT! I have wanted it for a long time.

Hopefully Santa reads my list!
