Urban Decay Naked Palette

So at along last, I finally have the Urban Decay NAKED Palette. Ive had so much hassle trying to get both that and the Urban Decay NYC Book of Shadows Vol III.
Ive called into Debenhams many times to see was it in or when would it be in stock, but had no luck. As it was already on sale in the UK I decided to just buy it online. I would of had it pre-ordered but was kind of afraid that it was get smashed up in the post but it didn't! :D I ordered it from House Of Fraser on a Friday and it was here on the Monday. Happy days!
Now onto the good stuff! :D

"Far from a group of boring beige shadows, this long, lean, seductive case is packed with twelve gorgeous neutrals. Shades range from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal, and feature FIVE NEW shades with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck.
Our neutrals won't leave you naked. 12 multifacedted shades (including four exclusives) escalate your "basis" to rich textures of matte, shimmer, satin and sparkle. Experiment with office-appropriate, deep and smoky, or summertime bronzed looks. 
Go naked, not is optional."

The product is packed in a dark chocolate velvet, with "NAKED" and "Urban Decay" embossed into it with gold lettering. I have to say I really like how the palette looks. I think it looks luxurious and sleek. The Palette contains 12 x 0.05 oz. eyeshadows, plus 2 x 0.02 oz. liners and a miniature-sized Primer Potion of 0.13 fl. oz. With the eyeshadows weighing 0.05 oz that means that you're getting 12 FULL SIZE eyeshadows, so palette works out alot cheaper than buying 12 individual eyeshadows. Cool or what?! :D 

Virgin (satin chamois),
Sin (champagne)  (This shade is permanently available).
Naked (matte buff nude)  (This shade is permanently available).
Sidecar (cocoa with golden sparkle sheen),  
Buck (matte nutmeg),  
Half Baked (subtle, lustrous bronze)  (This shade is permanently available).

Darkhorse (bronze patina),  
Toasted (rich copper)  (This shade is permanently available).

24/7 Liner with Zero (black on one end) (This shade is permanently available), and Whiskey (creamy rich brown) on the other. 
Miniature-sized Primer Potion (This item is permanently available).
Overall I can't fault the palette at all, I love it. Love all the shades and tones. All are wearable from day to night, and it was a really good price. 

UK £27.00
IRL €32.44 (from the UK conversion rate) It could be a lil bit more in stores.
