Hey girls! 

Today I want to talk about one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes ever: the Urban Decay Naked 1.

I bought it about 2 years ago when I went on a trip to London with my mom.

The palette is a little pricy: I paid £30 for it which is about 50$, I think, but I haven't had a moment of regret!

The palette is just awesome, super pigmented and a little goes a long way!

When I bought the palette, it came with a double sided eyeliner pencil in the colors Zero and Bourbon. It also included a miniature Urban Decay Primer Potion.

The palette consists of 12 different shades: 2 matte and 10 shimmer.
I swatched them for you guys, so check it out:

Aren't they gorgeous?

The two matte colors are Naked and Buck. I don't use these colors as eyeshadows but more for contouring my face, so it's nice when you are traveling or you don't have to bring an extra set for contouring.

My two most used colors are the very first two: Virgin and Sin. They are just lovely! I have been using them on daily basis for months and they are still about 2/3 full.

Well, all the colors look amazing actually, and the pigmentation is crazy!
I just pressed down my finger on the eyeshadow, I didn't rub, just pressed down: and what you see on the pictures is the result.

With Urban Decay, a little truly goes a long way!

I like that the palette has more neutral (naked) colors but also a few darker ones such as  Gunmetal, Creep and Hustle. That way you can still intensify or darken your look, for example when going from day to night make-up after work or for a special dinner date.

It's a very versatile palette and it's quite small in size so it's possible to take it with you on the go for touch-ups. However, the eyeshadows are very long lasting and stay put for hours. If you combine the eyeshadows with the Urban Decay Primer Potion, touch-ups won't be necessary!

After my experience with the Naked Palette 1, I have been considering buying the Naked Palette 2 as well, but we'll talk about that at a later date :)
Where can I find this palette?
It's not available in Belgium, but in the Sephora in Maastricht ( NL) it is available or you can always order online from e.g. :

What do you guys think about this product?
Would you buy it?

Hey cousin,

I love how you show us al the different colors! When I see a picture of a eyeshadow it's most of the time not like the color when I put it on me. But with the pictures when the eyeshadow is on your arm the color is very clear, and I think it's very easy to compare all the different shades.

Lots of love, Bathséba.
