Urban Decay Naked Basics

Monday, March 30, 2015

Not long ago I bought myself my first ever Naked Palette (Naked 2). I love Urban Decay but the Naked Palettes never seemed to appeal to me as much as some of the others, I love the Electric Palette and the Smoked Palette. I think its because I like to add a pop of colour when doing eye makeup and both of these cater well to this.

I picked up the Naked 2 on a whim as I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. With hind sight, I wish I'd bought one sooner, its a fantastic product. My only issue is that its a little too big to cart around in my handbag. That's where the Naked Basics palette comes in. While the original Naked Palettes have twelve eyeshadows Naked Basics has six.

Urban Decay Naked Palettes were created to offer a range of wearable neutrals. There are three Naked Palettes (1. Bronze hues 2. Taupe hues and 3. Flushed Pinks) and two Naked Basics.
I went for the original Naked Basics (£23.00 via Debenhams) which has six natural matte shades (Basics 2 is more Taupe hued). The palette includes six 1.3g eyeshadows which are all matte, buttery soft and not in the slightest bit chalky. The pigmentation is fantastic for a neutral palette. The shades include;

Venus - Soft white demi-matte
Foxy - Cream bisque matte
Walk of Shame (W.O.S) - Very light nude matte
Naked 2 - Taupe matte
Faint - warm, dusty brown matte
Crave - deepest, darkest dark brown/black matte

The Urban Decay Naked Range is available from most major department stores. I usually get mine via Debenhams. The Palettes are fantastic and so versatile. It has also just been revealed that Kate Middleton's favourite beauty product and her go to for "enhancing eyes" is the Naked Palette. Hey if its good enough for a Princess...
