Urban Decay Naked Palette Review Part 1

Hello everyone! It's a thursday, and normally I have a good amount owithf time during this day so I'll be making a post about my Urban Decay Naked Palette. If you've been following my blog, you'll know that my Naked Palette arrived last week with a broken mirror. Sad as I was, I immediately took this baby around with me, and you know what? I'm very happy! Thanks to this palette, I can finally let go of my Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette. I've been using it for a very long time, and now I can replace it with something way superior. 

Here are the colors:

This palette is perfect for office use, bronzy looks, neutral smokey looks, and bridal looks. They contain the same creaminess and pigmentation that Urban Decay is known for. I have to say, though, that the two completely matte shades (Naked and Buck) are not as pigmented as their not-so-matte counterparts. Sidecar is a little too shimmery in the pan, but it's not that bothersome when applied.

So here are the swatches. Sorry I couldn't take better shots. The lighting in my house is not so good.

from left to right: virgin, sin, naked, sidecar, buck, half baked

from top to bottom: smog, darkhorse, toasted, hustle, creep, gunmetal

I couldn't swatch gunmetal properly, since I was using only the side of my thumb. I'm sorry for that. All shades were swatched lightly, dry with no base.
The swatches really don't do the palette justice. They're really much prettier in person. I also love how they included my most favorite eyeshadow: sin! Now I'm not so worried about running out of it.

Wanna see these colors in action? Stay tune for part two of my Urban Decay Palette Review.
