This is the 1st post of a series of 4. I will go through swatches of Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3, and Naked Smoky over the next 4 weeks.
The first Naked palette is the first one to be swatched. It is the palette that I have had for the longest time out of the four. I’ve had it for years and it’s been my go-to for my daily makeup looks.
Virgin (cool pale beige shimmer)
Sin (champagne shimmer)
Naked (nude matte)
Sidecar (beige shimmer with silver micro-glitter)
Buck (fawn brown matte)
Half Baked (golden bronze shimmer)
Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer)
Darkhorse (deep mocha shimmer)
Toasted (antique copper penny shimmer)
Hustle (plum-brown satin)
Creep (onyx shimmer with gold sparkle)
Gunmetal (dark metallic gray shimmer with silver micro-glitter).
I love all the shadows in this palette. There are only 2 shades that I have conflicted feelings about. The first shade is Sidecar. I adore the colour, but I dislike the glitter. At the end of the day the glitter particles are all over my face. The second shade is Half Baked. Again I love the colour, but I feel like it makes my eyelids look older than they are. I’ve tried applying it with a damp brush and it helped a little. But mostly I avoid using this shade in the inner corner of my eyes.
My favorite shade is Sin. I’ve actually hit pan on Sin and bought it as a single eyeshadow. I think it is the perfect everyday brightening eyeshadow and it looks really good with Buck in the crease and a crisp black eyeliner paired with a red lip.
As I mentioned before I have had this palette for years and it was only last x-mas that I got Naked 3 and this x-mas I got Naked 2 and Naked Smoky. So I have been getting by perfectly fine with this as my go to palette for a long time. But I must mention that I have quite and extensive collection of other eyeshadows that filled in the gaps.
