Thinking of asking for this for Christmas from DH. But which one is best? Be grateful for opinions from anyone who has any of them.

Confession: I have all 4 of them (1-3 and Smoky)

What is your colouring like? 1 is more gold based so suits warmer tones, whereas 2 is more silvers/taupes and better on cooler tones. 3 is Rose Golds/pinks - its beautiful, but quite a bridal/special occasion type colour range although I think it would be great on green eyes. The Smoky is lovely, more silvery/grey based again but has more darker shades.

If I was only going to have 1, it would be 2 or Smoky depending on whether I was wearing it more for day or night.

I have Naked 2.
Love it, more or less threw away the rest of my eyeshadow after I bought it.
I use it everyday but it has nice shimmery/darker shades for more 'going out' makeup.
Best makeup buy for me.

I'm a blue-eyed blonde and went for 2. 1 was definitely suited to darker tones (golds and orangey) and 3. was indeed more "special occasion".

statistically I have dark hair/eyes and would probably use it equally day/night. I don't tend to wear much eye-shadow on a day to day basis but like to make an effort with my eye makeup if I'm going out for the day/night or have to go out on a client visit at work etc.

1 is probably better for me then

I have dark hair/eyes - but I am very pale and cool toned skin wise. Do you know if you are cool or warm? The colour of your veins is often a good clue, with blue tones indicating cool and green warm. Or do you suit gold or silver jewellery better?

I got the set of 3 off ebay for £40. Apparently they're factory seconds, so I don't have to choose which one I wanted! I still want the naked smokey one but I'm not spending more money!

I’m fair and dark-haired/green eyed and use 2 every single day and also use it for evening wear. I am interested in investing in a smoky eye one too though smile

I have dark hair and eyes, and olive skin. I have all three but 1 is my absolute favourite and the most versatile IMO.

I have 3 and really love it but I've always preferred warmer rose-gold tones. I'm very pale skinned, dark brown hair, blue/green eyes

I'm pale with dark (currently red) hair and green eyes and 2 suits me best. I don't normally rave about make-up but these are the best eye shadows I've ever used - the colours are so flattering and the textures feel beautiful. I also got the double ended brush which is great as I can smudge the darker shades around my eyes as an eyeliner. Highly recommended smile.

I'm medium skin tone, on the cool side. Dark hair, greeny eyes. I have number 2 and use it every single day! I think 1 had more orangy shades bad 3 was a bit pinky for me (I have v. sensitive eyes which can look a bit bloodshot so stay away from pinky eyeshadow).

I have dark hair and grey eyes. Just bought 2 and the colours are great for me, with a lot of warm browns.

I've got 1, 2 and 3, but hardly ever use 3 as it's a bit too pink for my liking. Med brown hair, fair skin, green eyes.

Be careful buying from ebay, there are a lot of UD Naked fakes around and the quality may be iffy.
