There are two versions of this palette, this one, and one where the shadows are conveniently placed over the most private of a group of girls' areas. Racy, no? One of the many reasons why I love theBalm.

|From the left: Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious, Schitzo, Silly Sleek|
Again, there are some Urban Decay NAKED Palette dupes here. Sophisticated is very close to Darkhorse and Schitzo is slightly more gold and less brown than Smog. But, thats where the dupes end.
Some of the glitter from Silly got into Sexy, Serious, and Sleek. In reality they are all matte and such an asset to have in a neutral palette. In fact, that is the one thing I would have done differently with the NAKED Palette. Buck and Naked are amazing matte colors, but I would love to have more! Nude 'Tude gives you those mattes and then some. Another thing this palette gives you is some color while still staying fairly neutral.
I'm sure I don't even need to say it, but the quality of the shadows is consistent with those I've previously seen from theBalm. Smooth, pigmented, they apply evenly, and they feel like buttah. This palette is available for full price ($36) at theblam.com, sometimes at various discount stores (mentioned above), and occasionally on Hautelook. The latter two options are fairly unreliable, but I fully recommend this palette even if you can only find it for full price.
