There's a beautiful selection of metallic shadows, and two matte shades. It's soft neutrals in brown and pink are perfect for everyday, but there are some darker and wilder shades for creating a dramatic evening look. I'd say every shadow is very wearable and suits my taste, although I tend to stay away from the gunmetal silver shade at the end. The shadows have names they are from L-R; Puff, Rose Ash, Fawn, Gild, Hazel, Lion, Bronze Ore, Burnished Brown, Tawny, Henna, Fuel and Cool Grey. I use either Fawn or Hazel (the matte browns) for filling in my eyebrows too. Multi-functional!
So far I'm impressed. I used Gild and Henna yesterday without a primer and found they stayed put without creasing. The vibrancy didn't fade and they kept their gorgeous metallic finish all day. The shadows are soft, smooth and well pigmented. They can get quite messy in the pan and tapping your brush before applying to the lids is necessary to avoid fall out. I find the Urban Decay shadows to be slightly creamier and richer but the MUA palette is not far behind. For the price, the formula is really lovely.
My favourite shade in the UD Naked palette is 'Sin'. I use Sin almost daily as either a base, highlight or blending shadow. Sometimes I'll just wear Sin by itself all over the lid. I was crossing my fingers that MUA's shade 'Rose Ash' would be a good dupe for Sin and it didn't disappoint! Sin is slightly more pigmented than Rose Ash but that's no biggy. I'm happy to layer up the colour a little if needed. I'm pleased to have another version of this shade that I love so much. (Mac 'Naked Lunch' is also very similar)
The two photos above are from the same day, something natural for during day and a little darker for the evening. Keeping things very simple I just swept the lighter shade across my lids and concentrated the darker shade in the outer corners and crease. The lighting is cooler in the second photo, it was much later on in the day, which is why the makeup (and my hair) look cooler in tone. I had a white balance issue on the camera but rest assured that the shadows in this palette are fairly warm in tone.
The palette comes with a double ended sponge applicator which is absolutely useless so just throw that away and use a brush. The packaging is cheap plastic and not very attractive but it does seem strong enough and slimline for packing into a small bag. This palette would be all you need if you were streamlining your makeup bag for a holiday or trip. The shades are versatile enough to be worn during the day and into the evening and have fantastic staying power. Certainly worth picking one up for £4!
