There is no doubt in my mind that this is my favourite of the Naked Palettes - the quality, colour range and sheer number of combinations that can be made with it has firmly placed it in the lead for the 'Naked' series. As you can see, I'm quite the fan of the shade 'Virgin' as it's a gorgeous inner-corner highlighter for a pale girl like me (trust me, they're not easy to find!) I also LOVE 'Sidecar' as an all-over-the-lid colour, and no one can argue against 'Half Baked' being possibly the most gorgeous gold out there. If there was one thing I could change about this, it would be to rerelease it in packaging like Naked 2 and 3 - this felt/cardboard combo is a bit cheap for UD and not very secure for day-to-day wear and tear - never mind travelling. Minus that little niggle - this palette is, and probably always will be the closest thing to neutral eyeshadow palette perfection for me. 

I used this non-stop when it was released way-back-when. It's a platinum/golden metallic masterpiece that never should've got lost at the back of my draw for all these years. It's not necessarily an everyday colour, but it's a gorgeous accent colour that really makes your eyes pop! 


I found this when I was sorting out my skincare stash here at uni, and I've been really enjoying using it again. I've never really been a huge fan of Liz Earle - it's nice enough but never really excited me - but this spritz is one of my favourites from the range, and it's soothing lavender scent is lovely on the skin before snuggling up under the sheets. 


I'm a huge fan of these lip stains from L'Oreal, and Lolita is the perfect everyday colour for me. They're small - so perfect for popping in your handbag - and always look gorgeous. I own 3 or 4 other shades that I use regularly, so I'm obviously a big fan - I can't recommend these enough!

  6. Your Naked palette looks well-loved! I actually only own a dupe of it, and I don't use it as much as I should! The Liz Earle mist sounds so lovely, the lavender scent would be so soothing and calming!

  15. It all depends on what you like, but I think the original palette suits everyone, whereas Naked 2 is cool-toned, and Naked 3 is warm-toned! x
