Urban Decay's Naked Pallete, Is It Worth The Hype?

I've been wanting the Naked Pallete ever since I started to explore the creative world of make up, and the wonderful website called, "Youtube." This is where I learned how to apply make up, to try different  looks, different products from both drugstore & high-end, and that is when I realized that I love make up. All thanks to the beauty gurus all over YT. :)

That is the main reason why I created this blog: My love for make-up.

Since I am a make up lover, I couldn't get enough. I have heard way too much positive reviews and raves about this pallete and I wanted to get one myself. I WANTED THIS SOOO BAD. I hesitated to buy one, and hesitated more and more in about more than 6 months. I searched for trusted sellers because there's no Sephora (A popular make up store international) here in the Philippines. I am also worried I might get a fake one if I order from Sulit or Multiply or maybe even Facebook, but thank God, I came across to this wonderful make up online shop, Stuff in Style.

Nonetheless, I finally gave in and purchased it with the birthday cash I received a few weeks ago.

I could really tell that this is the real deal because of the packaging, and it comes with the primer potion. Plus, Stuff in Style guarantees 100% authentic items! So no worries if you're planning to order from them. ;)

Here are the swatches respectively: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half-baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal.

All in all, I love this pallete. Despite of it's price, (2,700 php) I can say it's definitely worth it. Double thumbs up for this baby :)

I would recommend this pallete if:
1. You have extra money to spend in your stash
2. You love shimmery and neutral colors
3. You want to own a versatile pallete that is travel-friendly
4. You love ultra-pigmented,  soft, creamy & velvety eyeshadow formulas

1. The colors are super pigmented. You're really paying for it's quality.
2. Very versatile. You can use it anytime, anywhere and during any occasion. Whether it's an office look, an afternoon date with your girlfriends, a dinner date with your boyfriend, or even a party smokey eye look during the night!
3. A joy to apply!
4. Very long lasting, especially if used with the UDPP. Without UDPP: More or less 3-5 hours. With UDPP: 5-8 hours.
5. Comes with a high-quality brush.
6. Travel-friendly packaging (Lightweight, durable, easy closing and opening)

Of course, even though I swear by this product, we still have to consider the cons as well, right?
1. Too shimmery and glittery (A no-no if you hate these kind of eyeshadow formulas)
2. Doesn't have a decent share of matte colors (It only has two matte colors: Naked and Buck)
3. Expensive for an eyeshadow pallete (Even though it's still worth it, you may kind of hesitate at first like me.)
4. When applied, some of the glitters of the eyeshadows may fall out, but this can be fixed with a fan brush!
5. Even though the packaging is travel-friendly, the velvet texture of the packaging can get really dusty and dirty.

So I think that's it. I will edit this if I have something to add.

I would also like to thank Ms. Windy from Stuff in Style. She is very nice to coordinate with. She is very friendly and responds fast to orders. I sent my payment the day after I ordered, I sent her a picture of the payment slip and she shipped the item already without having to receive the payment first. So I was surprised when I got my pallete the day after! Very fast transaction and she is definitely a trust-worthy seller!

 If you want to buy US Authentic make up, then visit her site and you won't regret it. :)

She was also kind enough to send me a sample of Skin79 BB Cream. :)
