Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Urban Decay Naked Basics Matte Eyeshadow Palette


I tried to avoid buying this for the longest time, but I've finally caved when I spotted it with 10% off in Debenhams.  I already own both the first Urban Decay Naked eye shadow palettes, so tried to persuade myself that the Basics palette wasn't necessary, but who was I kidding?! I love a matte smoky eye, so this beauty is right up my street.

The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette contains six gorgeously pigmented neutral shadows packaged in a small rubberised palette.  It's about half the size of the other Naked palettes, making it perfect for travelling with.  There's one shimmery shade, Venus - a light champagne perfect for highlighting the inner corner.  The other five shades are matte, ranging from a pale cream to a straight black.  The matte shadows are perfect for everyday wear, and the six shades allow you to create a wide range of everyday looks.  As always from Urban Decay, the eye shadows are finely milled, velvety smooth and really easy to blend.  

I'm really loving this palette, I always reach for my Naked palettes one and two for a more glamorous, shimmery night-time look, but Basics is ideal for a laid back look.

  3. I am still yet to cave in but It's definitely going on my christmas list! Do you ever use the brown matte shade for your brows? I've heard some people do and wondered if it worked well. Venus looks especially gorgeous, knowing me I'll give in by November haha xx
