Urban Decay Naked Basics

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette Swatches
Along with lipstick, I'm a massive eye shadow hoarder. I own silly amounts of both and in the past have found it so hard to resist temptation, especially if either are in bright, bold colours. Urban Decay are top of my list with eye shadows as their quality is outstanding, I don't really need to tell anyone how good their Naked palettes are, they're a cult product for a reason. When they announced they were releasing a Naked Basics matte palette I decided I had no intention of buying one as A) I wasn't blown away by it (ANOTHER repeat with Foxy) and B) I had more eye shadow than I could ever wear.


That said, after reading multiple posts I did have an urge to purchase one so ended up going back on my strict no more eye shadow policy and entered a co buy when it popped up on Buyapowa. Much to my surprise, I won the co buy (first time I've won) so received this little cutie for free! (Thank you again, Buyapowa)

The palette is much smaller than the previous Naked palettes and contains 6 shadows, VENUS - FOXY - W.O.S - NAKED 2 - FAINT - CRAVE. I was a bit disappointed in the repeat of the colour Foxy but at least it wasn't Half Baked again hahaa. All colours are the same amazing quality as the previous palettes, they blend effortlessly and allow you to be as neutral or dramatic as you dare. If Urban Decay had released this palette first I don't think I would have been so eager to purchase the other two and would have been happy to stick to this. It's a lovely addition to any make up collection but I think it's perfect for someone who is just starting out with an interest in make up or has a sensible approach to buying make up (sometimes we just need to carry 10 lipsticks around).

Have you purchased this palette? I'd love to hear if I'm not the only one who gave in ahaa.

  1. I haven't actually got any of the Naked palettes, purely because I have an insane amount of eye shadows too! It's barmy, I don't know how I've accumulated so many. I do think this palette looks lovely though :) xxx

  6. I managed to resist buying this as I already own both the original Naked Palette and the Naked 2 Palette...there's still time for me to cave though!

    Venus and W.O.S look like gorgeous shades! This palette looks like pretty much the perfect travel size - I'm so tempted to buy! x
