Urban Decay Naked Basic's Palette

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice weekend, sorry for not posting much I've been quite busy this week and not had much time but I will be trying to post more regularly again. I now have my braces off which has been weird but great, I'm glad to finally have them off and have a nice smile. Anyway on to the post, I got the Urban Decay Naked Basic's for Christmas and I thought I would review it for you.
This is a quite known palette in the blogging and YouTube world, I had seen so many great reviews and video's using this palette so I wanted to try it.

On an everyday sort of basis for the daytime, I like to just wear neutral shades on my eyes, so this palette is perfect, to do a natural look but you can also create a more dramatic smokey eye if you want to.

This palette is also great for beginners, who are just starting out in a makeup and want to wear eyeshadow, as some of the shades are really natural looking and it won't look like you have too much makeup on.

The packaging is sleek and slim, it's a good palette for travelling with as it isn't too bulky and it has a big mirror inside.

There is 6 eyeshadows in the palette, 5 are matte shades in the palette and 1 with slight shimmery, so if you like matte eyeshadows this is a good palette to go for.

The first shade is Venus it's a pale creamy colour this is the shade with slight shimmer, Foxy is a matte beige colour, W.O.S-Walk Of Shame is a matte pinky shade, Naked 2 is a matte pale taupey brown shade, Faint a matte brown shade and finally Crave which is a matte black shade.

From the swatches you can see the first 3 shades are quite light and nearly match my skin but when applied to the eyes you can see them more.

The palette is only £20 which I think is quite a reasonable price for high end and it has 6 lovely shades, perfect for everyday wear.

Overall I think it's a quite nice palette and I definitely want to try the other Naked palettes.

What do you think to the Naked Basic's palette?

  1. I love the look of this palette, and especially as they're mostly matte. I don't have many matte palettes. Great review x
