Urban Decay Naked Palette Review and Swatches

Recently I just got the Urban Decay naked palette.
Here are swatches:
(Note: The eye shadows were swatched on top of elf's eyelid primer {$1})
This palette includes 12 eye shadows, an eyeliner duo,  and a travel sized primer potion. There are only two matte shades which are Buck & Naked. The other colors are either shimmery, or glittery. The pigmentation on this set is pretty good. There were only two shades  that needed a little more work to show up. They are Buck & Naked (Naked is a muted beige so do not expect it to be very noticeable).  So here are my over all pro's and con's
                               1. All are full sized eye shadows
                               2. Great Value
                               3. Easy to travel with 
                               4. Versatility
                               5. Good color range 
                               6. Nice eyeliner great for travel 
                               7. Two eyeliners 
                               8. All in one
                               9. Interior is easy to clean

                                1. Some shades had a little fall out
                                2. No versatility on eye shadow finish 
                                3. Case looks a little flimsy on the inside
                           BUT the biggest con is:
                               4. Hard to find
This is a nice palette for a person who travels, who likes urban decay, or someone who really wants to get the best bang for their buck. My issue is it is so hard to find and is way overhyped. It is permanent so do not buy it on ebay (Unless you really want to, but consider that you are probably going to waste a lot more than if you would have waited). I also hate the fact that only two shades are matte. I do not recommend this for someone who does not like shimmer. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to discover high end products or really likes the shades in the palette. 

Here are two looks I created with the palette:
1. Natural Day Look:
 2. Dramatic Night Look:
What do you think about this palette?
