Naked, Nude, and Bare

Ok, I am REALLY nervous about the kind of traffic I might get from the title of this post! lol While I am not naked, nude, or bare....I am talking about makeup palettes that ARE! The trend for neutral smokey eyes is so hot right now, I wanted to show you all a few different options when it came to palettes that promise this look!

First up is the EVER loved Urban Decay Naked Palette.
Retail: $48.00

The UD Naked Palette is 12 beautiful neutral shades that range in finish from shimmer to satin to matte. Included in the palette is a sample size of their ever famous UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion) and an eyeshadow brush. I know for a while it also came with a double ended 24/7 liner duo, but I don't think that is included anymore (bummer!). Another upside is that it has a decent sized mirror in the palette! The only con's I see are the price, and that I know some of the shades have quite a bit of fall out, but most smokey shades do!

The NAKED palette is available at Sephora, Ulta, and Urban Decay
Purchase from Sephora here

Up next is the NYX cosmetics Nude on Nude Palette.
Retail: $25.00

Do not adjust your screens, this palette really does mimic the Naked palette a WHOLE bunch! However, for the $25 price tag, you are getting 20 eyeshadow shades, PLUS 10 lip colors that go great with many different looks! Like the naked palette, it does have a mirror inside, and two applicators, one for eyes and one for lips.

The Nude on Nude Palette is available to purchase from NYX cosmetics.

Last but certainly NOT least is the Sigma eyeshadow palette in Bare.
Retail: $35.00

This palette has 8 beautiful shades, perfect for any neutral look from dark and smokey to soft and natural. Not only are the shades really beautiful, but this palette comes with a dual ended Sigma brush with an E30 on one end and an E25 on the other. The $35 price tag justifies the brush alone for me, so the shadows would be a bonus!

The Bare palette is available to purchase through Sigma
Purchase from Sigma here.

So there you have it, three of the new palettes for perfect neutral eyes every time! I hope you all found this helpful! I will be doing some smokey and neutral looks here coming up soon that you could create with any of these palettes, so stay tuned!
Have a wonderful day!
