Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Compared to the other Urban Decay Naked palette's, this one has been drastically under hyped. Perhaps this is because there are no shimmer shades or it simply isn't large enough to justify the hype - however I think this is a great little palette. No matter what age, what skin tone or what experience you have with makeup, this is going to be perfect for you for an 'everyday' face. The packaging is also MUCH more convenient than the bulky Naked palettes before it. It's literally half the size of my (well used) Naked 2 palette and perfect for an overnight stay or travelling.

The array of neutral matte eyeshadows includes 4 entirely new shades by Urban Decay and they can be used individually or, as I prefer, built up together to create a complete eye look. I use Foxy/Walk of Shame as a base to eliminate redness, followed by a light dusting of Naked2 in the crease and Faint in the outer corner crease. Venus is then applied along my brow bone because it has a soft touch of white shimmer. Depending on how done-up I want to look I can then use Crave as an eyeliner along my lash line or applied in the outer corner crease of my eye.

As with all Urban Decay eyeshadows, the pigmentation and staying power is excellent. I - and everyone else - can't recommend every Naked palette high enough! My swatching of these shadows is from only one quick swipe of my finger onto my hand. I thought I'd put this photo up because it shows how pigmented these shadows are even with minimal application effort. When built up, Crave is almost totally black.

My one criticism would be the similarity between Foxy and Walk of Shame. Foxy is ever so slightly more yellow, making it better as a base for reducing eyelid redness than the peach-toned W.O.S. Besides this they're practically the exact same shade, making this seem like a 5 shade palette instead of 6. Other than this I really don't have any other faults with the Naked Basics palette! As I said, it's perfect if you love the original Naked palette's but hate their bulky size for travel.

    1. Yeah each one is amazing but I found the first one to be more suited for warmer skin tones. Love this new one because it's for any skin tone x
