Eyeshadow Depotting Tutorial: How To Depot Urban Decay Naked Palette Without Heat

Were you one of the first who went all I-NEED-TO-OWN-THIS when the original Urban Decay Naked Palette came out in the market and made every neutral-lovin’ lady swear to own one and get it for all her girlfriends??

I wasn’t.

I took a while to let the hype hit me. By the time I finally got interested, it pulled a worldwide out-of-stock trick on me. GOSH! I had to wait like FIVE MONTHS for Sephora Singapore to finally have it restocked and get my hands on it! (Pssst! You can get it at Doll To Doll Cosmetics now!)

Everyone I knew loved it – the velvet casing that lent chicness and sophistication; the beautiful 12 neutral shades of browns, bronzes, champagnes and erm, more browns; the prestige of being able to get it at all.

Then one day I had enough of how troublesome it was to have to grab the palette for 1 or 2 shades, how the velvet casing had attracted dust and looked shabby, how my favorites from the Naked Palette made up only half of the full 12 stretch. I also got acquainted with the Z Palette. Never looked back since!

See those with a dent? They are Virgin, Sin, Naked, Smog, Darkhorse, and Toasted.

Step 1:

There’s no need for rubbing alcohol or heat. Depotting the Naked Palette is SO EASY.
