Is it too soon to start posting autumnal themed posts yet? I hope not, because I have many more planned! Anyway, today I’m here to ramble on about my new favourite love: The Urban Decay Naked Palette.
I love to switch my eyeshadow up as the seasons change, and one of my favourite seasons to do so in is, of course, autumn! I’ve found this palette, and I’ve been LOVING it for a while now and it’s going to be perfect to see me through the next few months! You can create some gorgeous looks with it, and it’s such high quality.
I personally prefer a cool toned palette for autumn, and while I know others like warmer toned palettes like the Urban Decay Naked Heat, I love a cool toned one as I feel it’s more versatile. Summer saw me obsessing over the Too Faced Peach Palette, and I’m definitely ready to change everything up for this palette. The Naked palette lets you create a really nice, understated everyday look, which is perfect for school, however you can also create a bolder look, or something fractionally more dramatic just for a day out.
It’s a really versatile palette, and the brush and mirror make it so great for travel as it would help you to travel a lot lighter. The shades are really pigmented and they blend so easily: I’ve found that if you wet your brush when using any of the shimmer/satin shades, then you get a much nicer finish and a far stronger colour. My only issue with this palette is that there are only two mattes, and they’re relatively similar shades (naked & buck), I’d have quite liked some more mattes as you’d have been able to create some more looks, however it’s such a great palette so it really is only a minor issue.
For £39.50 I think it is a really great value palette and will last ages. I would definitely love to get some more of the Naked palettes, they are great quality and I’d quite like to try some more out. Have you ever tried a Naked palette?
