Urban Decay NAKED Basics Palette Review

Urban Decay NAKED Basics Palette £20

I'm super excited to review this palette being the huge Urban Decay fan that i am. The Naked Basics is a cute little palette with 6 neutral matte eye shadows, so if your into your matte eye shadows and your neutrals this is definitely the palette for you. The palette is quite slim and small with a rubberised finish to it and has a good sized mirror inside the lid, out of all the Urban Decay palette's this is my favourite packaging as the other palettes tend to be quite large so aren't so easy to travel with or carry around in your make up bag for touch ups during the day, but this little beauty is pocket sized id say. 

Two of the shades in this palette are available in other Urban Decay palettes but the other four are brand new shades. The only semi matte shade in this palette is Venus (the lightest shade in the palette) it has a slight pearly shimmer to it which is fabulous to highlight the brow bone or the tear duct area. What i love about this palette is that the shades can simply take you from day to night, you can use your lighter colours in the palette for the day time and then smoke it up at night with the darker colours, the colour 'Faint' is also great for my eyebrows too.

Colour Description:

Venus: An off white shade with a slight shimmer. NEW!
Foxy: A matte light yellow/creamy colour.
Walk of Shame: A very light nude colour also matte.
Naked 2: A taupe matte colour. NEW!
Faint: A matte dusty brown. NEW!
Crave: A deep dark matte brown/black. NEW!

All the shades in this palette are highly pigmented, super soft to the touch and easy to work with, as the formula is so super soft they're really easy to blend and stay in place on the eyelids all day, i have super oily eyelids so i do use a primer or a base so i can get longer wear out of the shadows but i have tested this palette out without primer and the shadows lasted a good 6/7 hours which i thought was amazing.

Overall i really do love this palette, i think it super affordable considering its a high end makeup product, its great for travelling and the eye shadows are super good quality.

Have you got this beauty of a palette?? What did you think??
