Aah the OG of the Naked series. Long before we had The vault, the basics, etc. Back in 2010 (I had to Google that. I could have sworn it was 2011!) we were all obsessed over the original (still beautiful) Naked palette the palette that launched a thousand Nude palettes…are you sick of them yet? I’m not! Neither am I sick of the Original Naked palette (Shocker alert- I never owned 2 or 3! I will for sure be getting ‘Naked Heat’ though!)
With the recent release of the Naked Heat palette, I thought it would be a good idea to show some love to the original. And also I’d like to feel a little better about my very beaten up Naked palette.
*Prays somebody has a worse off one than mine*
….. I’m presuming that tags are still a thing?? also that you ladies still have this Naked palette or this could be a little embarrassing. 🤦🏻♀️
Q1. Top 3 shades?
Mine are quite clearly ‘Sin’, ‘Half Baked’, and ‘Virgin’. ‘Half Baked’ for me is the standout shade in this palette. It’s the one my eye and brush gravitate towards everytime I open it up. Virgin is a great base shade. And I often use Sin as an inner corner highlight.
Q2. Most unused shade?
From the looks of the barely dented pan, it would have to be ‘Gunmetal’ for me. Although, I have no idea why I have hardly used it as it’s a stunning colour. Note to self- Shop palette stash more often!!
Q3. Favourite shade combination?
I have two favourite shade combo’s- For an every day look I go for ‘Naked’ all over the lid, with ‘Buck’ in the crease. I might add a little ‘Darkhorse’ to the outer edge if I want a slightly smokier look or a bit of ‘Sidecar’ or ‘Half Baked’ on the lid, depending on how much patience I have for the epic fallout from ‘Sidecar’ that is!
For a night out, if I’m reaching for this palette I will more than likely go for ‘Buck’-crease, I’ll foil ‘Half Baked’-lid ‘Sin’- Inner corner, and ‘Creep’-top lashline/outer ‘V.’
I’m definitely a Bronze/Gold, smokey eye kind of girl when it comes to makeup. While writing this post, I realised how little I stray from these tones. So I’m going to try and switch things up and venture into the ‘Toasted’, ‘Hustle’ area more often. I think it’s obvious that I have given this Naked palette a lot of love over the years. I might need to make the investment in a new one actually!
Overall result~ A careless Sinner who needs to learn to Hustle!
