Urban Decay - ❤NAKED BASICS❤

Hi Lovelies!
Recently, I caved into the hype and decided to purchase the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette for myself. I have the other two palettes and part of me did think do I need this ? but then the beauty junkie part of me said GO for it haha! - I must admit I 100% made the right choice in purchasing this palette, as its perfect to travel with and you can create some great everyday looks with this dinky palette. I'm not the most experimental with eye looks, so as you can imagine I am a huge fan of the Naked palletes, as they are so neutral but beautiful at the same time. I have been using my Naked palette for a little while now and thought it would be a good idea to share with you my thoughts on this cute beauty product!

Shades
Venus - Soft off White (Semi Matte)
Foxy - Light Yellow Matte
W.O.S - Light Pink/Beige Matte
Naked 2 - Mid Taupe Matte
Faint - Warm Brown Matte
Crave - Black/Brown Matte

What I like ?
I think this is the perfect palette for everyday use out of all three, as the matte shades make it not just good for general daily use, but also for work/college etc. The shade range is lovely, as the lightest shade Venus could be used as a highlight/inner corner shade. Foxy is Yellow toned, which makes it good for correcting any discoloration on your lids, then you are left with 4 lovely light, medium and dark shades which allow you to create your desired look with ease. The texture is also lovely and I have to say that Urban Decay are miles ahead of any other brands I own in terms of quality and value (in their palettes). The palettes contain full size shadows, which really makes any of the NAKED palettes really good value for money. The pigmentation is lovely and very buildable, it was only W.O.S that was a bit harder to build up on my skin tone. 

What I didn't like ?
I can honestly say that this palette is a little gem and I would really recommend it. For £20.00 you get six amazing and versatile shades, which I think is good value. The only thing I would say is that if you have the other palettes then this one probably isn't a must.

Overall Thoughts ?
If you are looking for a versatile palette, which is good for everyday use then the basics is probably the one you need in your life. It's extremely travel friendly with a pretty good mirror as well, which again is a bonus. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this would be because you could probably live without it if you have the other palettes. However, I have the three palettes and love this one for travelling with and everyday use. I prefer to use the other two for more special occasions, as they have some beautiful shimmery shades.

I would love to know what you think about the Basics palette and Naked 1 & 2 ?

Love

  21. I have the original Naked pallet and I'm so so smitten with it but I want this one for the point you made about travelling, I hate lugging it around I'm so scared it will break or something and it's a bit big to carry to be fair! Now that I know it's worth it reckon I'll let that guru in me take over and purchase too :)

  26. This seems like a lovely palette for daytime eyes. Which I like a lot and I'm a big fan of Urban Decay eye shadow.

  27. I can honestly say I don't own any of the naked pallettes! I'm so ashamed :( haha I hear so many people rave about them but they always seem to sink to the bottom of my 'to buy' list as prettier things get added on! I love your review of the basics pallette and I'm a new follower. Your header design is just gorgeous :)

  35. Oooo I am jealous of your Naked Collection. I think I want to get the Naked palette two (is that the one which has more shimmer colours in it?) I like a shimmery eyeshadow. The basics one does seem nice but I do like a nice goldy shim :) x

    ReplyDelete
  36. Even if you have the other Naked palettes I think this one is also a must have because it's so compact - the others are huge! X

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am still yet to buy the naked basics! I really want to try it but not sure I could splurge on it! xx

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the look of the Basics palette, being a Naked palette 1 owner myself. For £20 you can't really go wrong, especially seeing as my favourite eyeshadows by MAC are at least £10 each! Urban Decay are doing 30% friends and family discount this weekend too at Debenhams so I may have to pick it up :) Also, I love your blog design. Thanks for following me, too!
