Urban Decay Naked Basics

Hello Dolls and Gents, 

Okay, so you know everyone jumps on the Urban Decay bandwagon. Everyone and their mama owns one of the Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes. The Original Naked Palette is popular item and a lot of people wanted a matter version of the Naked 1 palette, so Urban Decay listen and deliver the Naked Basics.

Now, I fell into the hype about the Urban Decay shadow. So, I bought the basics palette one to two years ago as birthday gift to myself, though I didn't really pay for it because I got Sephora gift cards for my birthday, so I decided to buy it.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette contains six full sized eyeshadows from a pale beige to black, and each eyeshadow is 0.5 oz and  the finish is all matte. This palette is available at Sephora for $34 and the Urban Decay site for $34. The quality of the shadows is incredibly pigmented. The texture  of these eyeshadows are silky, smooth, finely milled. You would think because it is smooth and finely milled, it would be powdery, but is not even powdery at all. They are pigmented and true to colour payoff in the pay. This palette is perfect  for any beginners or busy mom who wants a simple eyeshadow palette that has the basic neutral shadows. If you are a fan of neutral palette, like I am, you are going to love it. The size of the palette is also a plus, the palette is small, minimalist and perfect for travelling.  The packaging of the palette has a rubberized feeling to it, which reminds me  of NARS packaging that everyone talk about. Now, the shadow that are in this palette are

Venus is a white-shimmery creamy white. It is not a frost completely, but more of a satin finish. This is perfect for brow bone highlight  and the perfect neutral lid colour for my dark skin tone. It add a bit of a skin against any skin tone..

Foxy is a yellow beige with a matte finish. This is my go to shade lid colour for a neutral glam look. It can also be the perfect brow bone highlight for  any skin tone

Walk of Shame is a pink beige with a matte finish. This colour is perfect a lid colour or even brown bone highlight for any skin tome. I usually mix  this and foxy together  and apply it on my lid. 

Naked 2 is a soft taupe with a little brown and gray with a matte finish. This eyeshadow is perfect  as a transition colour or deepening the crease. I  usually use it for  deepening  my crease before going in with a darker colour.

Faint is a medium-dark brown with a hint of warm and a matte finish. This colour is perfect at my transition colour because it almost matches my skin tone, but it is slightly lighter. This colour would be perfect  for deepening crease as well, for my light skin tone girls and guys.

Crave is a dark black  with brown undertones and a matter finish. This is the darkest black I have in my collection right now. It is the perfect colour to create smoky eye and cut crease.

I love this palette and I recommended that everyone go and try it out. It is the perfect neutral palette for a beginner, busy mom, college/university student and etc. I think that it is worth $34 and I will definitely buy it again. Though, I do not use this everyday, it is the perfect palette to create your natural everyday look.
