I was never a big fan of the Naked palettes, but I’ve been really really excited when this palette was first announced.The palette was officially released in Malaysia on the 13th of July. As a Sephora gold member and also Urban Decay’s beauty junkie member, I managed to get early access to the palette — 9th of July. But alas I was sick for a whole week so I didn’t mange to play with the palette until recently.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the amazing packaging though.

The official release for the US was on 20th April, Malaysia’s was later. Sadly I didn’t manage to get the vault since they didn’t sell it in Malaysia (I should have gotten from the US dammit) Let’s just move on to the swatches!
