Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

The Naked Basics palette is the newest addition to the Naked Family, the very first matte palette to be released by Urban Decay. It features six full size shades, five of which are matte and the other slightly shimmery. The packaging is different from any other palettes, it's quite fiddly to open, does anyone else think this? Other than that, it's a sleek little palette and the letters o the front are embossed. Another thing I really like is that in this palette, Urban Decay didn't include a primer/make up brush, instead it comes with a full size mirror. All together this makes it handbag friendly and ideal to travel with. The shades are extremely pigmented, as are all the Naked palettes. My two favourite shades are 'Naked 2' and 'Faint' 

Overall, I absolutely love this palette I can definitely see myself buying another, as I only ever wear neutral shades. This palette is perfect for any beginner, the selection of matte shades are great for a day-time look 

What do you think of this palette? Do you own any Urban Decay palettes?

  5. Is the Crave eyeshadow a really dark brown or a black? I need to get this palette i love matte shadows !!


    1. Hello! It's a dark black, it's the most pigmented out of the palette, with just one swipe you get quite a lot, almost like you've swiped 10x. Hope this helps, chick. You'll love this palette! :) XO

  6. I've been toying with getting this! I have so many eyeshadows though that I'm not sure I can justify it haha! Maybe it can just be put on my wish list for now!
