Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette


Hi beauties :)
I have resisted and resisted and resisted jumping on the Urban Decay Naked band wagon, but I finally caved. I wanted the Naked Palette when it first came out, but I wasn't sure if I really needed it because I already had many neutral eyeshadows. Then the Naked 2 Palette came out, and I was torn between which one to invest in. When the Naked Basics Palette came out, I was even more torn between the three of them. But as you can see by the title I bought the Urban Decay Naked Basics first, and I don't regret it at all. It's so amazing that I already bought the Urban Decay Naked 1 and I can't wait until it arrives. But now lets get to the review...


 Urban Decay's Naked Basics shadows come in a small, rubber-like palette, that opens via a small plastic clip. Once opened, the palette contains six full sized shadows (0.05oz) and a nice sized mirror that allows you to get a close up view of your eyes when applying your makeup. Urban Decay's 'Naked Basics' palette is lightweight, compact and fits easily into a small purse, making it perfect for both travel, and daily on-the-go touchups.

 While the palette is advertised as matte, only 5 of the shades have a matte finish. Venus,the lightest color, has a satin finish. I think the color selection is pretty great in this. You have an extra light highlight, two nudes, a light brown, medium brown, and black.  Nevertheless, all of the shadows are buttery smooth, extremely well pigmented, easy to blend, and apply like a dream.

 The Urban Decay 'Naked Basics' palette retails for $27 USD and can be found at places like Sephora and the Urban Decay website. 

Overall, I am really impressed with the quality of this palette. With the exception of Foxy, all of the shadows in this palette are brand new colours that work nicely in a variety of everyday neutral looks. All of the shadows in this palette have a smooth, buttery consistency, are highly pigmented, and are easy to blend. If you have been looking for an everyday neutral palette be sure to check this one out.
