Naked Palette - Finally!

I almost gave up on getting this palette. I've been trying to get my hands on one since September last year. It was available at HQhair in October and my order was 'Backordered'. HQhair later apologized for not able to fulfil the high demand and cancelled my order. I then found an eBay seller who was selling this palette in a pretty good price. I placed the order, paid but she later cancelled it because she told me Paypal had blocked her account. #@%&!

It's really frustrating so I went to MAC and bought some dupes. In March, HQhair sent me an email saying Naked was back in stock. I was thrilled and placed the order. Instead of waiting for the palette to be shipped within 3 working days but nothing happened. When I emailed them to check if they're going to restock, I was told to wait until further notice. It finally arrived after more than 2 months of waiting! Was it worth it? Well, yeah!

Am I keeping the palette? No. In fact, I'm giving it to my sister. :)

If you already have some of these MAC eyeshadows (I reckon they are good dupes).

  1. Great post! The colours are really similar to the Mac ones - thanks for showing us the dupes.

  2. Seriously, I feel the same way. I like the Nake palette but I don't love it. I don't find myself using it as much as I thought I would.

  3. DanniiBeauty: There are other colours I don't have from MAC which are very similar to this palette ;)

    Mara: After seeing the palette in person, I knew I don't need it.
