Get Naked

I recently purchased Urban Decay's Naked2 Eyeshadow Palette. I haven't tried it out yet (sometimes I am weird with new purchases -- I just let them sit around and gather dust for a bit before I actually try them out -- weird, I know), but the names of the eyeshadow colors made me laugh out loud:

urban decay naked2

Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout 


While we are on the topic of NAKED, I was thinking about weird comments I have received in relation to me being naked: 

•I was recently told that I look smaller when I am naked than when I am clothed.  Thanks a bunch for the back-handed compliment.  Grrr. 
•An ex told me repeatedly that I looked better naked than clothed.  Another annoying statement, but I suspect most guys think this way.  I suppose this should be taken as a compliment, and it is better than a man saying something like, "For the love of gawd put some clothes on -- you look awful!!!"
•I was signing for a UPS package one time at work when the UPS driver told me he would love to see me naked. ?!  When he saw the displeasure/disgust register on my face, he told me he didn't mean it in a sexual way.  ?!  Not sure if that made the statement better or worse. Sigh.

I think it's the highest compliment to be told you look better naked than clothed. However, the UPS guy was way out of line with his comment. Yuck - what an awkward perv. I've witnessed UPS guys flirt with women all day long and it's a probably a job perk for them but that one was just one downright creepy mofo. The UD Naked 2 palette is beautiful!

Coming from a guy, how can a comment about being naked be anything other than sexual if it's directed to an adult woman?

I love those colors!!! I don't wear eyeshadow because as an Asian it's hard since I don't have much of an eyelid. But that color palette is right up my alley! And LO-effing-L to all those naked comments you've gotten, especially from the UPS guy!! I feel like a hideous blob when I'm naked. I haven't been naked in front of someone in a long time. It makes me cringe just thinking about it.

First, I love silly make up color names.

Secondly, I have been told on more than one occasion that someone didn't think I'd look as good naked, as I do. Yeah, that's totally not a compliment sir. Haha.

That has GOT to be a fun job, coming up with the names of colors, for real. That "snakebite" and "YDK" are calling my N.A.M.E.

p.s I have no naked comments except to say, wtf is wrong with people.

On the UPS guy's comment, the first thought I had was: his passion was being an artist and you would be a beautiful model to paint or draw. Naked as the Goddess made you. I think I gave the man way too much credit...

Dancing Branflake said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh goodness! I would have hit that UPS guy, no joke. But I bet you're hot. Just sayin.

melifaif said...

I have thought about purchasing this naked palet. But, really - they are the colors I own the most of, so I don't. Your comments you have received are great. In a totally not funny, or sexual way. WTF!?

kim said...

I am sort of the same way. I can't really wear new clothes for quite awhile after I buy them, and really it's just better to buy clothes completely out of season so I can think about them for a few months before wearing.

Love the names, and absolutely LOVE these colors!
Glad I am not the only one who buys things like this, and then lets them sit for awhile. Sometimes for me, it's a very long while. :-)

Pretty! I have the Urban Decay smokey eyes set and have never used. It's a lot of look for my sweaty lifestyle.
xo

Trixie said...

I demand pictures!
LOL
Hilarious!!

Lynn said...

Now all you need is some Sexy Mother Pucker Lip puffer upper.

The UPD guy? um maybe he was an artist and he wanted to paint you. No?

The Seeker said...

I love those shadows!!!!!
Hope all is great with you dear, long time no talk.....
Love to you
xoxo

anita said...

creepy ups guy comment.
love the eye shadows!!

Trissta said...

Oh my goodness. This whole post just had me rolling. I've had a few naked comments as well, but not nearly as good as those. That UPS guy must be able to use that line alot. LMAO. You know... I bet those house wives get a little frisky when it comes to UPS men. I'd stick with the make up, though, when it comes to naked things. ;)

Much Love,
Trissta

Claire Kiefer said...

HAHAHAHAHA, how the F can you "not mean that in a sexual way?" GROSS. Men have no idea what women have to deal with on a daily basis in terms of WACK comments like that. Shudder.

I think it's awesome that people think you look better naked. Embrace it! :)

bananas. said...

jealous of your naked2 palette. i'm still working with the first naked palette which i love.

now don't get weirded out or anything but after reading your list of naked related tidbits, i kinda want to see you nekkid now. no, not naked...nekkid. and i don't mean that in a sexual way. ;)

lol.

Alisa said...

I want that eye shadow!!

cerebral e said...

I bought a baguette at a Vancouver farmers market yesterday that was called '"naked". Most of their breads were named after sexual positions and such.

I'm in Portland now. Last time I was here I fell victim to public nudity. Naked, sigh.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

haha omg, that UPS guy should maybe get fired? that is crazy.

I do think it is so boy to want to see you naked rather than clothed. And taking offense at that is so girl, haha.

love the palette!

tulpen said...

I horrified a twentysomething year old guy at work with graphic descriptions of what women my age, post child bearing, look like naked.

Good times.

NellieVaughn said...

No one has told me I look better naked than fully clothed, which I am not offended by, because I don't like to be nude.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I am so with you and love keeping things new! I do it a little less now but still love newness. Tell us how you like the palette.

UPS dude, just do your job!

Lorena said...

I take forever to use new stuff. By the time i use them they are usually old. I make no sense.
Ok that comment from the UPS guy - i do not know what i would have said -
I have a friend that is always talking about how all she wants is to look good naked - makes no sense to me.
99% of people will see you clothed....

hope505 said...

..."not in a sexual way"..? O you must be an ART student, rrriiight..?
::eyes rolling::

That looks like a nice pallette...I hardly ever wear anything but natural / nude-y shades on my eyes.

Kitty Stampede said...

those are some killer eyes shawdow shades.

i have the exact same weird thing as you when i buy new stuff. what is with that?!?!
