Urban Decay Naked Palette

I know, I know, I know! The Urban Decay Naked Palette is old news now. But I'm still excited that I just got mine this past Monday. Like I said on Twitter, I'm still that same little girl in school who, if I was lucky, got all the cool stuff the popular kids had months after the "in" thing was no longer "in". LOL.

Anyway, I know you have all seen this palette on someone's blog or YouTube video. This thing was everywhere. Thus was the basis of it's appeal for me. So of course, as soon as I started seeing this UD palette all over, I knew I had to have one. I am NOT a "high end" makeup wearer so I could never justify spending the $48 on this. I didn't have to. It was a gift.

So, my boyfriend was off on Monday and we did a little shopping at Bath and Body Works (he wanted some Wallflowers for the home) and then a special trip to Ulta just for me. Every time we pass by Ulta or are in the neighborhood, I always say, "Let's go to Ulta!" It always happens that he speeds up and says, "Oh, we just missed it. Next time."

I guess to him, going to Ulta is like me going to Best Buy with him. LOL.

But this time he said OK so we went in and browsed around. I saw the Naked Palette right away and was shocked to see it in person. It was like a celebrity!! I'm such a geek. But right next to it was the UD Deluxe Shadow Box. Oooh, now that one had the colors I drool over. Of course, I could only get one and I wasn't sure which one to get, so, I asked for the bf's opinion. He said the Naked Palette. OK. Naked it is.

After it was paid for, I started feeling buyer's remorse. On this day I was wearing my bright green glitter Wicked eyes and I all of a sudden felt a little uncomfortable. "So, you don't like it when I wear bright colored eyeshadows?" He said, "I prefer you when you were bright eyes." Confused I asked, "So, why did you pick the Naked one?" He said, "Because it was more expensive." We both laughed. Then he added, "They only had one left. You said it's hard to find. I can always get you the other one later." Aww, my heart melted. He listens to me. All those times that I rambled on and on about who had the Naked Palette and how it wasn't being produced fast enough, he was listening. How sweet.

I just thought that was a cute day for us and how on days like that day, he can make me feel like the greatest person in the world.

Well, here we go. Here are the pics of MY Urban Decay Naked Palette:

Mini Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Urban Decay Shadow Brush

All I can say is that I love the shimmer shades like Sidecar, Half Baked, and Toasted. Sooo pretty. The matte shades are just OK for me. I do love UDPP very much and my full size one is almost out so I'm glad I got a little back up one. I did not like the brush. I don't know why, I just did not like it. It's pretty and it's heavy, well made, but it made the application awkward for me. Didn't like the finished results with the brush.

I'm happy I have it but since I'm not much of a neutral eye kind of gal, I wish I had gotten the Deluxe Shadow Box instead. But I am happy I have it. I will use it. And it means even more for me because my boyfriend bought it for me with good intentions. He's a doll.

Thanks for bearing with me through this monstrosity of a blog post. I must have gotten carried away!

Luv & Luk,

♥♥ This was a gift for me, bought by my boyfriend with his own money. These are my own honest thoughts and opinions. ♥♥

  1. Congrats on getting the Naked palette, I am right there with you.I don't have it or the Book of Shadows 3(ILOVENY). I have intentions on getting both,I just can't decide either heh.

    Your boyfriend sounds like my husband,they are too cute sometimes. Everytime we go somewhere he will say you want to go to Sephora or MAC? I am like neither(saving my money heh),and he will say even if I am going to buy you something,only rule is you have to be out in 10minutes hehehhe. If he's paying I can make Olympic record time :)

  3. @Mrs.Makeup, you made me LOL with your Olympic record time! That was too funny :) And yeah, my bf is real sweet. He lets me go into Sephora at the mall and just take my time browsing. When he gets bored, he starts to put makeup on our baby! LOL. So now he's more into handing over his credit card as long as it's online shopping. He tells me to have the shopping cart ready and let him know when I'm ready to check out. He's funny :)

    @Miranda, it's strange how exciting it is to get makeup, huh? Is there something wrong with us? LOL. I've used mine twice since Monday and I admit, the colors are lovely. I just have to get used to wearing more neutral colors :)

  4. Such a lucky girl that was so sweet of him :) I would love to have this palette... I will one day :) Urban Decays eyeshadows are amazing!

  5. @Amber, I agree! UD eyeshadows are amazing :) I do think that this is a palette that is worth the money because you can use it everyday and still get different intensity levels on a neutral eye. Very pretty. I can't wait for you to get yours!
