UD Naked Palette from (Canada)

There are plenty of reviews & swatches available online for the oh-so-popular Naked palette by Urban Decay, so I'm not going to be doing a review/swatch for this palette. Instead I will be posting about where I got this palette from in Canada.

I wanted to purchase this palette as a present, but all the Sephora's I called &/or visited were sold out. I'm not really an online shopper so I avoided looking online, but (since the closest Sephora is approximately a 45 minute drive away from me) I finally gave in & decided to look it up online.

The website that I found had the best deal is The palette was listed as $58 and it qualified for free standard shipping & handling, however, with taxes the total came up to $65.54 CAD.

I placed my order on Saturday, November 12th & received my parcel on Tuesday, November15th. The palette was not wrapped in bubble wrap, which concerned me a little but when I reached for the palette I realized that the minimal packaging was sufficient to hold the palette in place. Other things included with the palette were: a brochure on Himalayan Gems sold on the website, a brochure on the site's return policy, & my order summary along with postage stickers that I can place on the package in case I want to send the palette back for an exchange or return. I have to say that I'm quite impressed with the site and the service.

I could have also bought this palette through Sephora's website, which sells the palette for $58 as well, but the standard shipping costs $9.95, which would bring my total to $67.95 CAD. Also, Sephora lists their processing time as 1-2 business days & their delivery time as 6-12 business days. In other words, was a better deal for me.

Although, it still annoys me that the palette costs $48 USD in the U.S., especially since I live 30 minutes away from the border. The CAD is stronger yet Canadians have to pay more for the UD Naked palette & our taxes are higher as well!

Have you been able to purchase the Naked palette by Urban Decay yet?
If so, where did you get yours from?

I'm actually really surpised TSC sells Urban Decay!

I totally hear you about the price differences as well. Makes purchasing brand new more of a hassel. That's why I like to look for products in blog sales and the like.
