Urban Decay Naked Palette || Review and my thoughts of it.

I know this palette has been reviewed thousands of times, however, I wanted to do a review from my opinion and share my thoughts on it, as I know some people still have yet to try it :)

Let me first start by saying, I have NEVER owned "high-end" make-up before.. like ever! So this is all new to me and you can imagine my excitement when I was bought this last month (feb) for a late birthday present (my birthday is in October)so you will have to excuse my lateness of jumping on this band wagon hehe ;)

Anyway.. The Urban Decay Naked palette looks like this..

You get 12 eye shadow shades ranging from your highlighter shades to your darker colours. 

The colours are:
VirginA pinkish/white shade, ideal for highlighting.

SinA shimmer pink shade.

NakedA matte light brown/beige, good for a base colour over the lid.

SidecarA shimmer slightly darker beige.

BuckA matte medium brown colour, ideal for in the crease.

Half Baked A lovely gold shimmer shadow.

Smog - A shimmer dark goldish/bronze.

DarkhorseA off-brown with a hint of shimmer.

ToastedA light pinkish/purple shade with a slight metallic shimmer.

HustleA shimmer deep brownie/purple shade.

Creep - A metallic black with a small about of shimmer.

GunmetalA metallic grey/blue, gunmetal colour with a little shimmer.

I absolutely adore this palette! every single shadow is very pigmented and you don't need to use a lot of product to achieve a fantastic look, but they are also build-able for a more dramatic look, so I can see this palette lasting my a very very long time!

With the palette you get a travel size bottle of the UD primer potion, which id like to add is incredible, although not necessarily needed, however I like to use if everyday before applying my eye shadows as it feels amazing and super soft and creamy.

You also get a full sized UD pro-quality good karma shadow brush. Now being new to UD I haven't used any of their brushes before but this brush is amazing, picks up the shadows really well and lets you achieve even placement of product on you eyelids. Very pleased as this brush retails at £14 so is a brilliant freebie.

Well what else can I say that hasn't already been said! I honestly don't know what has taken me so long to get my hands on this product.. oh wait yes I do.. the price tag :/ I could never justify paying £36 for some eye shadows but now I have it and it was a gift I can quite easily justify it now :)

I done a blog post on a look I created using this palette so if you haven't already check it out ;)

    2. thân cao dưới ba thước mà bị thương. bất luận là ai cũng bắt lại trước cho ta, giết lầm một ngàn người cũng không thể bỏ qua một người.

      Lúc này đây, Cổ Đế thật sự động nộ rồi.

      Vâng, tù trưởng đại nhân. Ta lập tức đi ngay.

      Tang Thác Tư phi thân lên trên. Lập tức điều khiển binh linh của các tộc. Đương nhiên, quyền điều khiển tốc độ binh lính tra xét dĩ nhiên là thuộc về hắn.
      Nhìn bóng lưng thật lớn củaTang Thác Tư rời đi. Cổ Đế thì thào nói:

      Vẫn là Tang Thác Tư đáng tin cậy nhất. Đột biến phát sinh thì hắn là người đầu tiên đến đã chứng tỏ sự trung thành của hắn với ta, xem ra nhiều năm qua ta pdongtam
      mu moi ra hom nay
      tim phong tro
      nhạc sàn
      tổng đài tư vấn luật
      văn phòng luật hà nội
      tổng đài tư vấn luật
      thành lập công ty trọn gói
      chém gió
      trung tâm tiếng anhhòng bị hắn quả là uổng phí, bỉ mông cự thú cho dù là cửu cấp ma thú cuối cùng cũng thuộc loại ngu ngốc.

      Hắn làm sao có thể biết được Tang Thác Tư là quan tâm đến đệ đệ mình nên mới đến trong thời gian nhanh nhất?

      Hai vị khách quý. Xin đi theo ta một chuyến, có một số việc còn muốn phiền các ngài.
