ladies thank you SO much for all your input. From all your comments I was leaning towards the UD Naked (1) and then one of my best friends who is also a Bee told me that she saw the makeup artist at my wedding us that one on me. hahaha that pretty much seals the deal for that one! Going to go get it tonight. so excited!

I have Naked 1, Naked 2, and the LORAC Pro. I recommend the LORAC Pro, actually, because I think the amount of matte shades in this palette (compared to 1, 2, or none in the others) makes it really versatile. I feel like I can come up with so many more daytime and work-friendly looks than I can with the Naked palettes. You also get plenty of shimmery and darker shades for smokey eyes or evening looks.
Edit: Just saw your update with the pic. First off, you’re gorgeous!! OMG! I so wish I looked like you! Anyway, if you’re not interested in the LORAC Pro, I would definitely choose Naked 2 over Naked 1 for you since it has cooler tones. Swatch the colors at the Sephora and ask the SA to help you choose between them. Personally, I think Naked 2 would be best for you given your coloring, but someone who sees you in person would probably be a better judge.

I have both Naked palettes and they are amazing! Anything from Urban Decay is great, you can’t go wrong. I have a different Too Faced palette and I wasn’t a big fan. It looked pretty but the colours didn’t have a lot of pigment and wouldn’t stay on.
I just picked up the new Urban Decay Vice palette last week. I’m in love 🙂
ETA: I graduated college from a Cosmetics program, I’m a non-practising Makeup Artist lol

I have the Naked 1, and I really like it, it’s great quality. However, I don’t find myself reaching for it that often. I must be the only person in the whole world. Even though it’s supposed to be the “warm” palette, I hate that the highlights are on the cooler end, and that almost all the colors have some level of shimmer/glitter. I honestly find myself reaching for the WNW comfort zone palette & a L’oreal matte quad I have more often than my Naked palette. I guess I’m weird! It is really nice for travel, though.

Forgot to mention, I found the Naked 1 palette on Deal Extreme (they are overseas but cheap). They are selling it for $10.60. It appears to be the real thing, just with the palette slightly defective. I ordered 2 to give to my mom and friend.

@Mrs. Honeybee: thank you for the compliment and the advise. I will definitely take that into consideration when going to Sephora tonight.

I own the Two Faced Natural palette. I loooove it and use it daily! The pigment is bright, long lasting and striking. I love this particular palette because you can really create both a clean, glowy look and a sexy, dramatic look. BUY IT, YOU’LL LOVE IT!

I’m fair skinned, blue eyed and blonde, and I ADORE the UD Naked palette. I bought it at a wedding fair and have used it every day since.

@Meowkers: I own both the Naked and Naked 3 palettes. Both are awesome and are pretty much the only eye shadows I use. The Lorac Pro palette is on my wish list. I would definitely start with Naked 1, it has literally every thing you need for day or night time look. Also look up demos on youtube!
