Most Helpful Positive Review Worth trying if you like duo chrome shadows
They've stepped up the quality on these palettes ever since their OG naked palette that is now discontinued (that's the only other naked palette I've ever owned). I remember liking the shades in the og palette but I wasn't impressed with the formulation. You had to really work to have them show up on the eyelid, especially if you have darker skin. This palette on the other hand, is much more pigmented. Now I personally lean more towards neutrals if I bother to wear eye shadow day to day, so I've gotten the most use out of the shades "A.I" - "Gadget" in this palette. I also love "Byte", it's such a nice burnt Orange shade for darker skin tones that you can use alone or in conjunction with other neutral shades. I'm satisfied with how the shades A.I. - Gadget perform but I do use them in combo with some of my other neutral palettes to get a wider selection of colors. Out of the shimmery shades, "electrode" is my favorite by far because I love gold/coppery shades. The shades Call. I.T. - Override swatch nicely but I haven't put them to a full wear test yet because they're not really suitable for what I do/where I go from day to day. I am looking forward to wearing them for my next special occasion though. I get about 6.5- 7 hours of wear with the shades I have tried which is on par with how most palettes in the same price range as this one last on me (worn with a primer underneath). The brush they included with this palette is also not bad. And finally, the outer packaging looks really nice. I'm not someone who decides to buy an eye shadow palette because of the packaging, but just objectively speaking, the look of this palette is nice. I've never cared for the outer appearance of previous UD naked palettes. Also glad they changed from the flimsy, cardboard velvet-lined packaging to this harder, plastic casing that has an almost magnetic closing feature. Makes it way better for travel and keeps the outside looking nicer for longer.
Most Helpful Critical Review pretty, a little lackluster though
It is a beautiful palette but it is really lacking in some aspects. First of all the packing is beautiful! I love the cover design. I have it sitting on my desk because I love to look at it. This is my first UD naked palette, so it's my first time using the brush that all palettes come with. I found it rather stiff, a little bit scratchy but miles better the brush that comes in Anastasia palettes.
I think the color story is not quite complete. I feel like the palette is quite limiting with a majority of light shimmers and only one deep shade. I find myself reaching for another palette to finish a look everytime i use this palette. Just throw out the 2 bone colored shades please. One is more of a satin for blending out shades (I can just use my finishing powder so get it out), and the other is more of a metallic (I can just use my highlighter so get it out). One of those shades needs to be switched with a plum/grape shade.
When it comes to the quality of the shimmers, I find them not as poppy as I would like them to be. I think some people might like that for those that want their eyeshadow to be more "wearable". I want my eyeshadow to be as flashy and shiny and glittery as they can be, so I prefer my indie single shadows over this palette.
The stand out shades in the palette are cyberspace and y3k, they are both duochrome metallics. Static-my fav of the 3-, not a bot, and override are my next favorites because they are glittery toppers with a translucent base (similar to Charlotte tilbury palette of pops, urban decay moondust shadows, or Colourpop super shocks-but a drier formula) static and override have an iridescent shimmer while not a bot is a standard champagne with more of a sheer metallic base. Electrode and Call IT are the more lackluster shimmers, they are sheer and not as shifty, metallic or glitter. If you want more dimensional looks, try layer different formulas on top of each other.

This is a very pretty palette, my HUGE gripe though is there is only one deep matte shade. Wish there were more!

Very Pretty Colors
Cen20 from Southern California
I'm not an influencer. I don't even wear makeup everyday. I barely even know how to do eyeshadow looks. I don't possess the artistic talent it takes for bold, detailed looks. This palette is perfect for someone like me. I love that I can apply two colors and feel done, yet pretty. This has made my "rotation" for daily wear even though I don't wear makeup daily, although I might start now with this palette. This is something I will excitedly swipe on for work or play. It's fun, pretty, easy and can be subtle or played up more intensely depending on the user. I think this palette provides good color options for those that want a subtle wash of color with some "pizazz". I think if you are an influencer or makeup artist then you will definitely be able to create some stand out looks as that is your talent. I have bought MANY Urban Decay palettes in hopes of creating looks and not succeeded. The ones that work best for me are always the ones that disappoint others with the color payoff. I think it's all personal preference on the look you wish to create. I have tried the colors from this palette dry with UD Original eye primer and can't wait to try them wet for a more "intense"look.
I like the mix of peachy tones and the shift from peach to mint green. I feel it's a warmer palette even though it appears pastel. I am so happy I purchased this and I know it will not go to waste or end up sitting in the bottom of my drawer cause "I just don't know how to make it work".
Kelly from PA
When I watched/read reviews prior to my purchase, I was hesitant to buy it. DON'T listen to the reviews! After receiving and using this palette, I was so confused why people didn't like it. It's unique and the glitters are so gorgeous. I love a pretty duo chrome shadow - and this has plenty! I love that is a neutral glam palette. We see so many bright colored palettes released, but this one tones it down while being so stunning and different.
LadyAsylum from FL
Nothing about this palette screams or whispers cyber anything. They should have called it their frost palette. For cyber I was expecting neonish, sharp colour story. But it's not it's a bunch of frosty nothing.
Pepper8228 from SoCal
Love all the colors and payoff is terrific!
Wowed by these colors...
Rhonda from Salisbury NC
I bought this palette on a whim. I have so many palettes, but when I tried these shadows I was so impressed. Also, I was thinking spring vibes, but once I used the colors to create my looks, it fit for fall. I am so happy that I bought it.
Not my favorite
Klmhl001 from Jefferson City
I'm always 100% behind naked palettes and I have purchased every single one. I bought this one and I just DO NOT like it at all. It's not very pigmented. That's why I buy these palettes is because they show up well. Sadly I'll have to return this one and looking for something else. I hope UD can come out with a better one next time.
Reviews mislead- poor quality
BirdieSue from Minnesota
Nearly all of the reviews are from influencers. This is a cheap palette of pastels....in yet another naked box. The colors have a ton of fallout and the color story is super random. These are spring colors being put out in the fall. Dumb.
jeng59 from undisclosed
I was so excited to receive this pallet as I have many of the other NAKED pallets and love them all. However this product was just not it. The packaging is super cute and fun, but the colors inside are pretty monochromatic. It's difficult to get more than one look from all of the shades. There are a couple dual tone shadows that are pretty, but the glitter and colors do not stay on for very long even with primer. Definitely not worth the price.
good formula but not so good colors
jennyttt from undisclosed
I think that the pigmentation and the formula are good but the colors are a little light. Does not work well with darker skin tones. I do hope that they come out with more fun colors with this formula. Easy to blend with hand or brush.
brighteyeswide from undisclosed
To be the most honest, I am not in love with this pallet in any real way. The colours do not have a ton of pigment once they are on your lids￼, and definitely require a primer for hold. I found that they all just sort of blended together. I do however think this would make a really pretty elevated but neutral￼ look for a wedding. That's about the only time I could see myself wearing this. Nothing really stands out or "pops" like my other urban decay favourites. And they are known for high pigment in wild colours! I think if you want a soft neutral look, you might like this. But there isn't a chance I'd purchase this unless it was on clearance. So sad to say because I love this Brand!
From every day to special occassion
nhustead from Denver, CO
I love UD palettes but this is, by far, my favorite one! Every color is pretty, blendable and buildable. Its nice to have neutrals that have a subtle pop. The pink-peach-rust bases work so well with blue eyes, I couldn't be happier!
urban decay cyber palette!
joycev11 from undisclosed
Urban decay never fails with their palettes. I love the packaging, it's very futuristic since it's cyber themed! The color payoff is also fantastic as always. The color way for this palette is interesting. I love the chrome shades and shimmery shades! I think this palette could be wearable for everyday wear since there are some nice matte shades and the chrome shades aren't as intense as people might think. I would recommend this palette to people who are thinking of venturing out to chrome shades as a beginners palettes since it's not intimidating and easy to use!

First of the the packaging is amazing and very good quality. The product is also amazing I loved all the colors. They blend well too!
Gorgeous Packaging and Gorgeous Looks
michellel12 from undisclosed
The packaging of this palette, and the colors inside, are truly gorgeous. The shades are laid out very nicely inside, so that it is easy to choose a set of shades to create a comprehensive look. The mattes (virtual, gadget, and byte) are a bit powdery, and byte is very pigmented. The duochromes (cyberspace and y3k) are both very pretty, and work better when you use your fingertips to pack the color on, instead of a brush. I am usually a neutral matte eyeshadow wearer, but this palette has really made me enjoy playing with sparkles.
interesting colors, a bit muted
katiepanda from undisclosed
the color story is interesting, but the colors are a bit muted and pastelly for my usual taste. I found you get the best payoff with the duochromes by using your finger or a wet brush to apply.
joyk24 from undisclosed
Great palette in the usual naked eyeshadow formula! Beautiful color scheme and it blends well. Some shades are slightly chalky but overall a solid palette.
love UD naked
katieh287 from undisclosed
I looovveee all of UD NAKED palettes they have offered. I wasn't sure about this one as I haven't dabbled with the bright colors this one offers but I love using them as accent colors! Give it a try!
christyp39 from undisclosed
I am really enjoying this palette! It's simple, yet can be versatile enough to be used if you're a beginner or expert. I feel like this palette is not intimidating and has colors that can be worn everyday. Most of the shadows are light and don't pack a punch, except for Byte. Be careful with that color; you don't need much of it. The rest of the colors you can most definitely build them up if need be. I'm not an expert when it comes to eyeshadows, so when I do my eyeshadow it's always simple but i have to use shadows from different palettes. However with this palette it's all I need. The formula is smooth and not textured. I also love that it can be worn by all different skin tones, that's always an extra plus! I would most definitely recommend for all, but mostly beginners. This would be an excellent palette for them!
alicia_lee from undisclosed
This palette has really gorgeous warm and cool-toned eyeshadow colors! They are pigmented, easily buildable, and very blendable. I especially loved the shimmery colors because they brought dimension to my eyes. Overall, I really loved this palette, and I can see myself using it everyday in my makeup routine!
dayzgx3_ from undisclosed
This isnt my favorite palette I own but it is decent. The packaging is really cute and the brush is too. Very aesthetically pleasing. The matte shades are easy to use and blend well, but the shimmer shades dont work well.
jesslynj from undisclosed
Great color choices and I like that it is not your basic color pallete, you get to experiment with these beautiful shimmers in the palette. Only downside is product is not that pigmented.
monicafoorever from undisclosed
I adore this palette! I took a few days to really give this beauty a go and it did not disappoint. I definitely think that this is marketed towards a specific audience since all of the shimmers are velvety and subdued. I personally prefer neutrals with a tiny bit of color so this is a pretty safe palette for those that want to experiment with color only a little bit :)
