Why You Need A Naked Palette

Back in 2015, I wrote a post on drugstore alternatives to the Urban Decay Naked Palettes (1,2 and 3). At that time I did not own any of the Naked palettes and I was still not entirely convinced about spending the money on these palettes. This has changed. I now own two of the Naked palettes and they have become my most used eyeshadow palettes. So in today's post, I wanted to talk about why I love these palettes so much and why they really are worth the money.

Why You Need A Naked Palette - Life Of A Beauty Nerd

I bought the original palette for my 21st birthday and after using it once, I realised why the Naked palettes were so popular.

Both the matte and shimmer shades were super pigmented and easy to use. Although I prefer the matte shades as I do in all eyeshadows, the shimmer shades were the best shimmer eyeshadows that I had ever used. 

In the original palette, my favourite shades are Naked, Buck and Smog.

I have used this palette so much and I didn't think I would ever use another one more. Then the Naked Heat palette arrived. 

I do not think I have ever been more excited about a make-up launch. I bought this as soon as it came out.

It is a gorgeous warm-toned palette with six mattes and shimmers. I have mentioned this many times on the blog since it came out. If you want to read my review, click here

There are very few days when I do not use at least one of the eyeshadows from the Heat palette, and most often I am using the original palette instead!

My current favourite shades in this palette are Low Blow, Sauced, Lumbre and Cayenne.

So I like to think I am getting my moneys worth out of these palettes!

They are still £39.50 which is quite a lot of money, but I promise that you will not regret it.

So I fell in love in the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I can definitely see my collection growing in the future. Have you tried the Naked palettes?

  1. Love this post such a great idea, I only have the Naked 3 but think I definitely need to invest in more! X

    1. They are totally worth it! I would quite happily own the entire Naked range!

  2. I absolutely love the Naked palettes -- I literally have ALL of them. They are great staples for a makeup collection.

    Great post! x


    1. OMG JEALOUS! I would love to have all of them, although I don't think I would be allowed to own any other eyeshadows haha!

  3. Real OG Naked palette fan right here!! I purchased it year ago (I'm actually embarrassed to even admit how long ago it was) and i still use it regularly. My two fave colors are completely used up, but this forces me to use the other colors remaining in the palette and they honestly are all very wearable. Such a great investment palette as they are all so wearable and very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Loved your post, and glad to see the OG naked palette is still on trend!

    1. I only got my original Naked palette in 2016 and I use it at least once a week!
