Let's Get Naked!

In an Urban Decay sense.

I'm sure many of you are aware the Naked palette made it's way back onto the Debenhams site a few days ago, selling out once again.

I didn't expect this to blow up as much as it did, hence why I didn't get it right away. But I've been lemming it since the summer and I've finally managed to get it without paying ridiculous eBay prices. £90? I mean, are people stupid enough to actually pay that much for it?

I'm sure you've seen it many times so I won't post swatches but you have to see the beauty of it!

Urban Decay couldn't make liners fast enough so they had to stop production and start selling it with a Good Karma Eyeshadow brush instead. I was a little bitter about this at first but I have so many Zero liners floating around, I honestly don't need another and actually prefer the brush.

Let's take a look at the shades:

That's some kind of sun reflection or something. It's not dented or visible. Strange ...

Virgin - Shimmery pale nude.
* Sin - Frosty pink champagne.
Naked - Matte beige with just a hint of brown.
Sidecar - Shimmery bronze brown.

Buck - Matte dark brown.
* Half Baked - Metallic/frost copper bronze.
* Smog - Medium dark bronze.
Darkhorse - Deep brown with bronze shimmer.

* Toasted - Shimmery brown with a hint of pink.
Hustle - Shimmery chocolate (mmm!) brown.
Creep - Black onyx with silver shimmer.
* Gunmetal - A blue grey metallic silver.

* All shades marked with an asterisk are permanently available.

You can look great NAKED! This long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals. Shades range from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal, and feature FIVE NEW shades with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck. We've also included a range of textures: everything from glitter to shimmer to matte. The chocolaty velvet case is emblazoned with the word "NAKED" in gold foil lettering. (Just wait 'til your friends see you pull this sexy thing out of your bag. Jealous!) The mirrored case also includes a professional quality, cruelty-free Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush, AND a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion in original formula. This is a shadow palette EVERYONE can use, and a truly spectacular gift. Experiment with office-appropriate neutrals, summertime bronzy looks, or sultry smokiness. With such a diversity of neutral shades at your fingertips, there's more to neutral than meets the eye.

I think the range of shadows is really good, especially if you're just starting out and don't know which to pick. You have them all here in one palette.

I already have Half Baked and Smog. I've been using Smog so much this last month as it's in the NY BOS. But I'm still really glad I got this!

I'm not a fan of the velvet packaging, it attracts dirt and fluff and it's a total PITA to get it clean again.

It's definitely one of those palettes for days when you just want something quick but you can also use it to create really sultry evening looks.

Have you got the Naked palette? What are your favourite combinations?
