If you haven’t seen this iconic palette before then where have you been for the last 5 years? Under a rock? In a cave with no access to beauty gurus on YouTube? Wherever you were, you missed out. The Naked Palette by Urban Decay took the internet by storm. Every YouTuber and Blogger was mentioning this palette – raving about the quality, the colour selection, the beauty… and I was no exception. When this started to become big on YouTube (I’d seen Zoella and Tanya Burr talk about it so obviously 16 year old me was SOLD!) I knew I needed it so I put it on my Christmas list and prayed Santa would be kind to me – and he was! This was beautifully wrapped under the tree!
I was so obsessed with this palette. It’s all I wore on my eyes every single day with no exception. I was blown away by the blendability, the pigmentation, the colour range! I wore it to death. And I still do. I genuinely still love these eyeshadows and no other launch from Urban Decay has had me in love quite like this one. When the Naked 2 & 3 came out I got those as well but I didn’t wear them nearly as much and I think I really need to declutter them as they just collect dust on my vanity – but the original Naked palette is used quite often when I’m doing my make up.
I own the most palettes from Urban Decay than I do from any other brand (I have 5) and their eyeshadow quality is amazing but there’s just something about the Naked that makes it that much more special. I don’t know if it’s the velvety packaging (why did they get rid of that – the tins are just ugly and clunky!) or just the fact that it was my first proper high end eye shadow palette that makes this such a fond favourite of mine, but I can’t help but love it.
Everyone seems to have this so let me know what you think of it below! Is it one you reach for all the time or is there something else that has your heart?
