Urban Decay Naked Basics Review

Hello Everyone!

 
Disclaimer:
 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  
 
Today I'm going to review Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette. I purchased this during the Spring and it's such a great essential to have in my makeup collection. I really think I'm going to purchase the Naked 2 Basics palette in the near future!

Appearance

 

 

- Hard rubberized case that snaps together

- Large mirror

- Small sized palette with six full sized shadows

 
- Great for travel or makeup bag

- No brush included


My Thoughts

This is another great palette by Urban Decay. Unlike the other Urban Decay Palettes I have, this one mostly consists of pigmented matte finishes (except Venus which has a shimmer finish).

Swatches

 

From Left to Right:
Venus
Foxy
W.O.S. Walk of Shame
Naked 2
Faint
Crave

I'm glad I purchased this palette because I can use it everyday basic eye makeup. It literally takes me about 10 minutes to create most simple eye makeup with this palette. You can also use this palette to highlight your brow (i.e. Venus) or use some of the colors as transitional colors (i.e. Naked 2) to incorporate other eye makeup looks. This palette reminds me a lot of the Naked 2 Palette because some of the colors are very similar except without having the satin and shimmer finishes in th Naked 2 palette.

Here's a quick FOTD

 

 

 

 

Since it's a new season I thought I'd change my hair up a bit too with box braids and start wearing more red lipstick :)

  1. I love my naked 2 palette too! The black shadow is really good for lining your eyes and I like to use the lighter colours in the corner of my eyes to make them seem bigger! Love your eye look today :)
