Urban decay Naked 1 -- Review, swatches and a makeup look

Urban decay Naked 1 £37 (Gift)

Could I be any later to the band wagon with this one, probably not but when I asked on twitter you guys said you'd like to see a review so here it is.. 

Now I'm fully aware that I am a horrible blogger as I used this before I photographed it oops! I will one day stop committing such sins.

From left to right -

Virgin - A subtle shimmery off white. The perfect highlight 
Sin - A super shimmery metallic baby pink.
Naked - One of the two matte colours in the palette, a muddy light brown. 
Sidecar - Very similar to sin but a more brown'y pink.
Buck - The other Matte in the palette, a mix of grey and chocolate brown.
Sidecar - A gold shadow packed with shimmer. 

From left to right -

Smog - A dark brown with particles of gold shimmer, this can look a little more on the olive green side in certain lights.
Darkhorse - A very dark chocolate brown almost black with lots of shimmer.
Toasted - Probably my favourite shade out of the palette a mix of brown and pink packed with shimmer. 
Hustle - A very warm shimmery light chocolate colour.
Creep - The most disappointing shade in the palette for me it's just not as creamy as the rest, a black with rainbow shimmer. 
Gunmetal - Another of my favourite shades, a  beautiful navy blue with silver shimmer. 

Overall I really love this palette and I find I can get a really varied array of looks out of it. The shadows are amazing quality and blend like a dream. Now I just need the other two naked palettes! Onto the look I created with this palette, it isn't one of the most subtle looks you can get out of this palette but I think it's my favourite look I've produced so far. 

So for my base I used the Urban decay primer potion and a little bit of Mac Bare study paint pot. I then applied  Half baked all over my lid using a fluffy brush. I then popped Smog in the crease and blended it all together. Then I took Darkhorse on a small brush and ran it under my eyes. I put a little bit of Creep along my top lash line, highlighted with Venus and finished off the look with Benefit's They're real mascara!
