Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a review with you guys of my most-used product lately Naked 2 Basics Palette by Urban Decay. I first heard about this Naked Palette after watching several Youtube girls raving about it and so you know that I absolutely have to pick one up and see what was all the fuss about. If Urban Decay has matte shades palette then, I got to have it since I’m always intrigued by matte shades the most. So does it live up to the hype? Let’s take a look.
The packaging is made of plastic material casing but study. The palette is as big as a HD cellphone. It’s slim and sleek. It has a good size mirror but no brush applicator. Net wt: 0.30 oz
Each palette has 6 shadows in taupe-hues neutral which has light to darker shadows. There are 5 never-been-seen before shades and it says to have cooler tone and it complements Naked 2 perfectly.
I chose Naked 2 Basics instead of Naked Palette because I prefer the more neutral taupe shades for my skin tone.
L-R : Skimp/Stark/Frisk/Cover/Primal/Undone
I love all these matte shadows except the Skimp which has a little shimmer which I used it as highlighter on brow bone. Then the darkest shade on the palette is the Undone which is more of a smokey deep taupe rather than black.
Here are the color swatch. As you can see the left half of the shadow is in lighter shades than the right half which has darker shades. The colors are matte and has highly pigmented.

Overall, I’ve really been loving using this palette especially Stark, Frisk and Primal for an all matte neutral eye-look.
