The Nude 'tude is a neutral eyeshadow palette with the greatest versatility in its class. There are both warm and cool shades, with more than just brown tones. I prefer it to the original Urban Decay Naked because there is more variety in colors that can create natural or smoky eye looks, though I do enjoy and use the Naked II palette most out of the three. Nude 'tude boasts phenomenal quality, and it is definitely worth the splurge if you can find it at a discounted rate on HauteLook, as I did. It retails for $36 USD. I cannot say I am a fan of the packaging, as I prefer plastic and metal to cardboard, but it is thin and lightweight yet durable with a sizable mirror on the lid panel.

Swatches and Shade Breakdown:
Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated
Sexy, Serious, Snobby, Stand-offish
Sultry, Seductive, Silly, Sleek
I like to wear Sassy in the inner corner, as it is very bright. It is too noticeable on the brow as a highlight, but that is just my personal taste. Stubborn is a gorgeous pinky-peach, but I like to mix it with Stand-offish to add more sparkle. Snobby is a lovely warm gold, reminds me of a deeper version of the gold in Guerlain's Turnadot palette. Sultry is powdery, but it's a very useful matte nubuck. Selfish is a frosted taupe, and I generally wear this on the lower lashline. It is not a particularly memorable taupe, but I am a taupe collector. Sophisticated is a basic shimmery warm brown. Sexy is a phenomenal burgundy, one of the best that I own. Serious is a medium black, not as dark as the black liner shade from the Guerlain Liu palette, but I was quite impressed by how smoothly it applied. Seductive is a warm bronze that leans more of a golden brown when applied to my skin. I like to wear this one all over the lid and add Sleek to the crease for a quick smoky brown eye. Sleek is a deep, dark brown that blends easily with very little fall out (reminds me of LE Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown shades). Silly has the most fall out, requiring a bit of clean up. The shimmer drops onto the cheeks, so I avoid using this one.
Bottom Line: Versatile and wearable, worth owning even if you have both Naked palettes!
