You’ve been pleading with Urban Decay to release a matte version of the Naked Palette and Naked Basics is their answer. This is not their new releases but rather the contrary. I wanted to get this Naked Basics Palette to compare it with my Naked 2 Basics Palette (which I did a full review, click link) for you guys. I just received it a few days ago.
This is a six full sized eyeshadows in a plastic rosy pink packaging. Net wt: 0.30 oz for US$27.00 or CN$34.00 at Sephora in-store or online and at Ulta. The packaging is light and very easy to bring anywhere. It comes in a full size mirror with neutral shade eyeshadows.
There are also three light shades in the palette, though they each have a different tone. So, they’ll work differently for cool, warm, and neutral looks but can feel repetitive.
Here is the color breakdown from left to right: Venus (soft, off-white demi-matte), Foxy (very light yellow/beige matte), Walk of Shame (very light pinky nude matte), Naked 2 (rosy taupe matte), Faint (warm, dusty brown matte), and Crave (deepest, darkest brown/black matte). These are all matte neutral finishing shadows. I just want to put it out for you to know.
In terms of the texture – it feels silky, smooth and phenomenal. It blends well and works even more intense with primer. The top swatch is on bare arm and the bottom is with primer. Spotted any difference? These are all lighter shade shadows for cooler undertones, if you’re looking for a neutral finish. On my medium skin tone, I’ve to work on with primer to get the lighter shade more visible on my eyes.
If you’re a fan of neutrals, or you know someone who loves or perhaps, has to wear neutrals, I highly recommend, for this is a must-have palette. But if you already have Naked Palettes (Naked & Naked 2) then you might want to skip this one out since I noticed a few similar shades on Crave=Blackout, Venus=Bootycall, Naked 2 = Naked and Faint=Buck.
These shadows are densely pigmented with stay true-to-pan color payoff. I wore this over immediately after taken pictures and swatches in the morning and the staying power was amazing. It doesn’t show any fading for half the day I was wearing it and it stretched until evening–with a primer. I’m liking it and will continue to wear them by rotating it with my other favorite palettes. But, honestly I feel that Naked Basics 2 gives me more color payoff for my skin toned while Naked Basics has lots of highlighter to play with 🙂
So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you find it interesting and helpful. Until next time, stay beautiful!
