The Naked Palette has become my favorite, and I haven’t even had it for very long. The shadows are just perfect for the color range I like to use. I feel like if I could afford to make my own MAC palette that it’d be my favorite just because they’d be colors I specifically chose for myself and knew I liked.

Can something I’ve only been using for a little over a month be considered an “all-time favorite?” If so, LORAC PRO PALETTE! For me, this is better than all the other neutral palettes out there. Prior to this palette, I would have said the Naked 2, though. I still love it, but it’s not a complete palette to me, so it’s not something I can just grab and use without having to pull out other shadows, which is perfectly fine when I have the time to go through all my makeup… I bought both Naked palettes knowing that I’d need to supplement them with other shadows, but I don’t have to do that with the palette from LORAC which makes me love it just a little more. I just have everything I need in this one palette, which makes it perfect for me for everyday.

I love the Too Faced natural eye palette, it’s perfect for travel and has more matte shades than the Naked 1 palette. Also the brown shades work perfect for the brows!

I’m actually reaching a lot for my naked 2 palette! More than my original naked palette so I guess it is my fave so far.

I bought an eyeshadow quad from L’Oreal in the shade ‘Earthsquape’, which contains really pretty and subtle champagne nudes and taupes. It has a surprisingly buttery and smooth texture. Even though I own the naked 2 palette (and tons of other natural-themed eyeshadows), I find myself reaching for this most often!


Tough. I love both my Naked palettes (both 1 and 2) to death but I also love my Stila In The Know palette because it’s a perfect, basic, all matte palette that is just so useful. Can’t decide :/

U.D. Naked 1 palette. I use it because I am lazy in the morning…not much fuss…unlike those bare Escentuals loose powder. Brush some color on…and it doesnt even matter what color and you are ready to go…not much thought when I am half awake.

I purchased Guerlain Turandot based on your review and I must say that aside from my customized Bobbi Brown palette (Bone, Heather, Taupe and Naked), it has become my favorite palette also. I love how it looks and all the colors in the palette compliment each other well. Btw, I’m an NC30 in MAC Studio Fix Powder and Warm Beige in Bobbi Brown foundations and concealer. 🙂

Chanel Sable-Émouvant Eyeshadow Duo.

Not reviewed here, but very pigmented and versatile. Great for everyday and it can be used wet for intense evening looks.

I know everyone likes the naked but I actually never got it. Instead I picked up the LORAC PRO palette and I love it! I still secretly want to buy the Urban decay one, but not sure if I can justifty having two neutral palettes!

For a full face palette, it would have to be Too Faced’s Enchanted Glamourland, with the first Balmbini palette coming in a close second. For an eye shadow palette, that’s a tough one…it would be a toss up between the original Naked Palette and Naked2, but I also really, really love Tarina Tarantino’s Dreamy Palette and, from the drugstore, Maybelline Caffeine Rush! But I also really like UD’s 15th Anniversary Palette. This is a tough choice….

The Smoking Quad by MAC released with the Smoke Signal Collection back in 2007. I have never used a quad that often.

Up until recently, I would have said UD Naked, but now it’s definitely the UD Naked Basics. My usual everyday look is a matte skin tone lid with a matte light brown to dark brown gradient in the crease, matte black in the outer corner and a shimmery light tone in the brownbone and inner corners. I used to carry around an Inglot four palette with some Inglot shades that allowed me to create this look, but UD Naked Basics has the same colors and it’s def more travel friendly!
