when i first saw this palette on the internet, i just fell in love! i'm more of a neutral gal, i normally gravitate towards my pink chocolate collection when doing my eyes in the morning. this palette contains the most gorgeous neutral colors, and it just screamed my name! i read the reviews on sephora, and they just drew me in even more, i couldn't wait to get one for myself!
unfortunately, there was so much demand for this palette that it was out of stock everywhere. i then heaved a huge sigh and signed up for urban decay's waiting list in the meantime. that was around september 2010. about a month or so passed, and i finally received an email from them saying that i had one reserved for me! i immediately begged my friend from new york to order it for me online (i couldn't purchase it myself, as the site only accepts US issued credit cards). she received the palette around the end of october.
my friend and i agreed she would ship it here in manila in november. that was still a long wait away, but i didn't mind, i was just happy to have a palette of my own. her balikbayan box arrived around the 4th week of december. i was in sydney at the time, so i had to wait for 2 more weeks before i could get my hands on it. i finally received my palette in the 1st week of january 2011. i opened the package in my office cubicle, and i must have looked like a crazy person because i was just staring at the palette with this lovesick look in my eye. haha, i told you, i was in love!
okayyyyy, sorry for the long intro, i just wanted to share "how i met my naked palette" :D
the naked palette contains 12 full-sized eyeshadows. yup, that's right, full-sized! that alone would cost $200! you also get a travel-size primer potion (which is really the best eyeshadow primer out there!) as well as 24/7 liners in whiskey and zero. at $44, this value is a-ma-zing! :) i mean seriously, what more can you ask for?
let's take a closer look at the shadows..
virgin (nude satin), sin (champagne shimmer), naked (buff matte), sidecar (beige sparkle)
buck (brown matte), half baked (bronze), smog (golden brown shimmer), darkhorse (bronze-plum shimmer)
toasted (taupe-bronze), hustle (mocha shimmer), creep (near-black metallic), gunmetal (dark grey metallic)
this is my first urban decay palette, and i am very, very happy with it! :) such a great buy, pure looove! :)
p.s the naked palette now retails for $48, and instead of the eyeliners, you get an eyeshadow brush
