Dark Shadows.

The Urban Decay 'Naked Palette' probably the most blogged about beauty item I have ever seen. Albeit I'm a bit late to the party with this, considering 'Naked 2' is already spreading like wildfire but none the less. I knew this would be perfect for me because i love more neutrally brown type colours compared to crazy pinks and greens I got my hands on this just before Christmas when it was on offer in Debenhams for 35€. An early Christmas present from me to me.....  
My most used shade from the palette is 'Naked'. I think its a nice subtle colour which is perfect for everyday use. For nights out to create a more dramatic look I like to use this to contour around my eyes. Being so pale anything browner looks ridiculous and this is perfect. It just looks so natural. I find myself reaching for it over any of my other eyeshadows.
Closely tied for favourite are 'Toasted' and 'Hustle'. I like to wear both of these together if I'm going for more of an 'oomph' with my eye make up. I find 'Hustle' on application isn't as shimmery as it looks on the palette but I really like that. It's a gorgeous dark brown and perfect for a smokey eye. 'Toasted' is quite shimmery with gold speckles as you can see in the swatch in the picture below. It's quite pigmented too and easy to blend in.
I really like the 'Naked Palette' and I can see why its so widely raved about. There's quite a few shades to satisfy everyones taste and as you can see none of them are even close to hitting the pan. I reach for these three shades a lot more than any of the rest, granted I feel a little guilty for neglecting the other nine but sure what can you do?

I feel a bit alien because I'm pretty sure I'm the only person in the blogging world who doesn't like the Naked palettes!!

I have this palette, I got it as a Christmas present and I use it almost everyday! I bought a friend 'Naked 2' for her birthday and I have to say that the packaging is much better on the second one! I still love mine though :) Nice pictures on your post!

Oh, I really loved my Naked palette when I first bought it, but it's taken a bit of a backseat now I have my Naked 2! Definitely agree with you on Naked being the perfect shade to contour a little for us pale girlies, haha xx

I love all three shades you do, I just can't wear Gunmetal, looks weird on my pale skin. I'll still buy the second, or just get it for my birthday in a month ;)
