Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette

Today we’ll be looking at the Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette.  This has quickly become my favorite shadow palette, hands down.

But first, some weirdness, or else it wouldn’t be my blog.  I woke up this morning and immediately smashed my shin on the corner of our bed.  Now, I should preface this with letting you all in on a not-so-well-kept secret: I’m incredibly clumsy.  Like, not in a funny way, in a did-that-girl-just-legitimately-hurt-herself kind of way.

Clumsiness has been as much a part of my life as my love of pizza, and I do not remember a time without it.  I remember one of my parents saying to me at one point, “How are you so clumsy when you take so many dance classes?”

Endless grace and beauty, people

I don’t know.  Maybe I grew taller than I was supposed to.  Perhaps I have an undiagnosed inner ear problem.

At any rate, my husband is extremely familiar with my, um, ailment, so prior to moving into our current house, the bed had been, well, “Amy-proofed.”  He put foam bumpers on all the exposed corners so that if *cough*when*cough* I ran into them, I wouldn’t hurt myself.

However, as we were moving the foam fell off, and it hasn’t been replaced.  So this morning began with a super duper gash to my shin.  And the day just kind of went downhill from there.  My computer kept crashing.  The internet was going down at pretty regular intervals.

The only saving grace for this day is that I managed to use the word “druthers” and the phrase “clap back at you” during some banter with my husband.  And I ate a lot of chocolate Chex, which helped.

Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette - Beauty ChaosSo back to the Urban Decay Naked Palette.  I have the original, but there are several other iterations of it, Naked2, Naked3, Naked Heat, and Naked Smokey.  There’s even a smaller one, Naked Basics, which has only six colors.  For the purposes of today, I’m referring to Naked…original.

The palette consists of 12 colors in gorgeous neutral shades, perfect for a natural look or smoky, if the mood strikes.

I was really late to the game on this one.  Having tried a bunch of imitations, I finally decided to just spend the money and get the real Naked palette.  Boy, did I waste my time with the others.  There is something about the quality of this eyeshadow that really makes it worth the price. I think UD refers to it as their “Pigment Infusion System.”

Each palette comes with double ended brush, fluffy on one end and stiff and straight on the other.  The colors included in the Urban Decay Naked Palette are:

Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette - Beauty Chaos
All the colors listed below, with Virgin at the top and Gunmetal at the bottom

Virgin: cool pale beige shimmer

Sin: pale nude shimmer

Naked: nude matte

Sidecar: beige shimmer with silver glitter

Buck: fawn brown matte

Half Baked: golden bronze shimmer

Smog: deep coppery bronze shimmer

Darkhorse: deep mocha shimmer

Toasted: antique copper penny shimmer

Hustle: plum-brown satin

Creep: black shimmer with sparkle

Gunmetal: dark metallic gray shimmer with silver glitter

Most of the time, I use Naked in the crease, Sin on my lids, and a light line of buck under my eyes.  I finish with some brown gel liner on my upper lashes and occasionally blend Darkhorse over the line.

Cost and Where to Buy

You can pick up the Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette on the Urban Decay website, Sephora, or Ulta, and it’s listed on all three for $54.  I know, it seems a little expensive, but think about this: a) you’re getting 12 colors and b) as I said, I’ve tried the knockoffs.  This is the best quality. Plus all three of these sites have free shipping over $50.

Just briefly, since I haven’t tried them but they are similar, here are breakdowns of the other two palettes’ colors, courtesy of the Urban Decay website.

    I have this palette too. love the more lighter shades since I’m pretty fair skinned but do like the texture.

    1. Amy July 10, 2017 at 3:48 pm

      I’m light-to-medium, so I get that. The really dark gray and almost black ones I haven’t mastered yet.

    Naked original has always been a go-to palette but I really love Naked 3 as well.

    1. Amy July 10, 2017 at 4:10 pm

      I’ll have to check that one out next. Like I said, this one was my first Naked palette. I’m never going back to anything else.

    Love all the Naked Palettes. I have yet to get my hands on the heat palette but I may cave in soon after seeing all the rave reviews. <3

    The naked palette is the best!

  9. Taylor Mobley July 12, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    My favorite palette of all time!! I love the pigmentation of all the colors. Gorgeous!

    1. Amy July 13, 2017 at 6:16 am

      It’s quickly become my favorite as well

  10. Nadia July 13, 2017 at 6:35 am

    I have the Naked palette too and love it! I haven’t purchased the ones that came out after that. I feel that this suffices for me pretty well.

    1. Amy July 13, 2017 at 9:03 am

      I know, I just have the one for now. I’ll likely end up trying all of them just to see what they’re like, but this one is so good!

  11. Jessica July 13, 2017 at 8:21 am

    I love Urban Decay! They have the best palettes. So many great colors!

      They do! I like their more vibrant colors as well, like the purples and blues.
