Left to right: Naked, Devotion, Shy, Fiery, Lavish, Dreamy, Tranquil, Exposed, Reveal, Wink, Obsessed, Corrupt.

So by now I can only assume that everybody and their dog owns an Urban Decay Naked palette of some sort, apart from me. As a very poor student (how many IMAG0273times have I mentioned that now?), I use decent palettes at a much more reasonable price, one of my faves is the MUA Undress Me Too palette which cost me somewhere between £3-£5. I am using a generic picture from the MUA website as i may receive complaints about the state of my own if I was to post a IMAG0272picture. A few of the shades on  the palette are basics which I use everyday. These are some of my faves:

Naked–  This matte beige colour is a great for creating an evenly-toned lid.


                                                                   Shy- This is a shimmery beige and is great for highlighting under the brow or down the bridge of the nose.

Lavish- This is a great transition colour for any smokey eyes- I find cool toned browns for this purpose so hard to find.

Reveal-This is a cute shimmery rose gold for a subtle shimmer or really blendable for an intense shimmery smoky eye.

Believe me when I say this isn’t exactly a dupe for any of the Naked palettes, these aren’t the most pigmented shadows  I have ever encountered ( especially the Corrupt-disappointing for anytime you really want a dark smokey eye) but with some eyelid priming and layering they do alright. Anyway, in my past experiences all you need is some fab eyes for the first hour of a night out (for any IG photos or potentioal new profile pictures) but once your home and you look in that mirror, the £30 extra you paid for the UD pallete will no longer be able to help you honey!
