For some strange reason I ended up buying my Naked palettes backwards in the sense I bought the 3rd first, then 2nd then this one, the 1st Naked Palette from Urban Decay.
The reason I had to buy these were not due to the fact everyone was talking about them and crazing over them, but in fact I actually always wear neutral shades such as browns and golds and they appealed to me very much .
Since buying the Naked 3 , this collection of palettes from this brand have become almost addiction and since buying the third palette when it was released, I have since started to slowly build up the rest of the brands makeup to my own collection.
There simply is nothing I do not like with their eye shadows at all (although I never did fancy buying the Vice as their shadows seemed a little loose in texture to me and I am not a fan of loose powdery eye shadows, I merely seem them as a waste ).
My Palettes are used everyday more or less and to be honest they barely look used except for the shade strange in the third palette which I am continuously using for under my brow and inner corners of the eye.
Cost of Naked 1 Palette - £ 37.00

What they say about this product -
It’s the palette that revolutionised our neutrals forever. Loaded with 12 bronze-hued shadows in an insane range of textures —including matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle—Naked proves that neutral is anything but boring. From the palest champagne to the grittiest gunmetal shades, it’s all here. Whether you’re going for a laid-back, beachy vibe or black-tie drama, you’ll definitely look better Naked.
Every shade features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for colour that holds tightly to pigment.. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows colour to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane colour payout. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. Colour that stays on your lids. And a velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.

As with all of the palettes in this collection, you receive a fantastic shadow brush which I am a big fan of and use every time I apply my eye makeup because of its soft texture and the bristles do not fall out all over my face.
You get the wonderful 12 selection of shades -
You also get their famous primer from the brand in 4 sample sizes of each option to choose from -
I love how different this is compared to the other three and although it would have been nice to keep the Velvet packaging (because I actually love the feel and look of them ), I know it is more appealing to own the easy cleaning metal gold shaded casing which has that click shut security .
For me, I take especial care in my Urban Decay products so I have no fear of them starting to look shabby or tearing before the need to buy a replacement due to overuse but Ii can see why people prefer the harder case.
Although the casing of the Naked palettes have changed , the product is still of perfect quality and the shades change with every single palette which is even more appealing as I don't seem to have the same shades in either of the palettes (except for Half baked which appears in Naked 1 and 2 ) and at the rate I am going through my Strange from palette 3 , it would be nice to see this shade repeated also.
This warm toned , neutral palette is perfect for everyone, no matter the time of day. You can wear it natural and light or build it for the stunning smokey look for those evenings out.
All of these shades are fantastically pigmented even the lighter shades and they last you forever as you only need a small amount each time .
For me , buying all of these Palettes are an investment due to me having little treats of my own and I think that these three palettes will last me a massive length of time so paying £37 for each is worth every penny and pound, in fact I now need to get the basics to complete my set.
Of course I can not show you my most loved palette of the month without some swatches , so here is one with the flash and one with out to give you an idea of the shades more.
So what do you think about the Naked Palettes , A craze or a must have, which is your favourite of the three?
