Good day beauty lovers,
So I’m here to continue the Urban Decay reviews. This time I’m talking about the oh so raved about Naked Basics Palette ($27.00 for 0.30 oz.)
Venus: A soft, off-white demi-matte. Very smooth buttery texture and great pigmentation for a light color. This is the only color in the palette that isn’t matte. I would say its more of a satin finish because it does reflect a great deal of light. I think it’s one of my favorite highlight colors for brow bone and inner corner.
Foxy: A very light yellow/beige matte. Another pigmented, smooth and blend-able color. Also great for highlight, all over lid color, or used as an eraser to blur out imperfections.
Walk of Shame: A very light pinky nude matte. This is one is also buttery smooth.
Naked 2: A rosy taupe matte. This is a great cool toned transition or crease color. So smooth, so blend-able, so pigmented.
Faint: A warm, dusty brown matte. I don’t want to sound redundant here but again this shade is smooth, pigmented and easy to work with. Love this one to define my crease.
Crave: A deep, dark brown/black matte. I’m so happy they threw this color in. It’s great to darken the outer V, to turn your day time look into a smokey night time one. It’s also a great to define the upper and lower lash lines with.
Of course this palette gets a 10/10.
Its been long awaited for, Urban Decay finally came out with a matte neutral palette. And wow did they do a fantastic job. The pigmentation is top notch, so is the blend-ability and buttery texture of all the shadows.
The packaging is also very sleek and compact, it’s really great for travel. You have all the colors you need to create a fresh day time or smokey night time look. I think this palette is also a great accompanying product for the other Naked palettes or any shadows for that matter. Definitely a staple must have for any girl 😀
