The Ultimate Eyeshadow Palettes

I’m pretty sure every makeup addict out there has heard of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, I mean they are iconic. I wanted to write a blog post on the palettes because I have spent years collecting them and the original Naked Palette is the item that really made me fall in love with makeup.

I think the reason I love these palettes is because they are so versatile. Each palette contains 12 eyeshadows and in 5 palettes that is a lot of different and unique eyeshadow looks! These palettes have been so popular because Urban Decay didn’t stop after creating one eyeshadow palette, they listening to what their customers wanted and have created a further 4 absolutely stunning and unique palettes.

The original Naked Palette is where it all started for me. I asked for it for Christmas a few years back and I literally couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. My mum and dad scoured New York looking for this palette and after fainting at the price purchased it for me, I couldn’t have been happier. The shades in this palette are very neutral with the exception of creep and gunmetal which are slightly darker shades. The colours in this palette make it so easy to create a pretty or striking eyeshadow look and I love that you can even use the colours on their own. When I am in a rush I love putting Half Baked (one of my all time favourite eyeshadows) all over my lid, the eyeshadows are so pigmented that they really stand out so I don’t need to use anything else.

Urban Decay have only improved with every palette since the original, in my personal opinion. I love that there is a palette for every look whether I want a pink eyeshadow a cool toned eyeshadow or a red eyeshadow! So when Urban Decay announced earlier this year that they were releasing the Heat Palette I knew I had to get my hands on it, it literally sums up me in a palette. I think this is the palette that made me most excited, I love using red/burgundy eyeshadow palettes, especially in the autumn/winter which is the season we are heading into now. One of my staple looks is using a shimmer eyeshadow all over the lid, I am a sucker for shimmer and glitter, but I also love that the Heat Palette, in fact all the palettes, have a range of matte eyeshadows that I can use to neaten the edges. My favourite look from the Heat Palette is using Dirty Talk and Scorched all over the lid with He Devil and Cayenne through the crease and Chaser and Ounce in the inner corners. It looks stunning and really stands out!

I definitely think these eyeshadow palettes are the best in the market not just because of how versatile they are but because they are so pigmented and give such good pay off with very little fall out. Urban Decay have also hit the nail on the head with the packaging because all the palettes are are stunning and always arrive in the most beautiful boxes. Along with this the quality is just outstanding, and for such a high quality product, I think Urban Decay hit the correct price point.

If you have been looking for a new eyeshadow palette I would definitely go and invest in a Naked Palette, they are amazing. If you already have a Naked Palette I would love to hear about some of the looks you love and are your favourite, please let me know in the comments as I would love to try something new and mix things up a bit.

If you want to purchase any of the palettes they are linked above. I think the next palette I am going to purchase is the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – it looks beautiful!
