Urban Decay | Naked Basics Palette

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope your all well? :D So i am slowly but surely getting through and review all of the lovely new goodies i've picked up over the last few weeks. It's deadline time at Uni the next few weeks so i've been really into getting my work finished so i can stay up to date with my blogging posts :) Todays post is going to review on the new-ish NAKED Basics Palette. This little beauty has been out for a while now and i picked this up last week. I couldn't not add it to my Urban Decay NAKED collection in my makeup stash :D I have them all now and it's like the evolution of the NAKED palettes :P When purchasing this palette the MUA on the counter offered to do my makeup and she gave me a mini master clase on how to use it and some cute little tricks. One being using the Urband Decay Primer Potion in Greed, it's a beautiful golden shimmer shade and it really showed through after the eyshadows were applied.



The NAKED Basics palette has 5 true matte shades and 1 light shimmery shade. Venus, Foxy, W.O.S, Naked 2, Faint and Cave. The colours are very true to what they look like in the pans. 

Venus is a beautiful light shimmer shade which could be used for the perfect highl light on the brow bown and inner corners of the eyes. After having my mini master class i discovered that this little beauty can be mixed with all the other shades to transforms them. 

Foxy is a yellow toned nude shade, which i'm pretty sure was also in the NAKED 2 Palette?! It's the perfect shade for a wash of colour all of the lid. 

W.O.S also know as Walk Of Shame is a pinky nude shade which in a way is similar to Naked Lunch by MAC. 

Naked 2 is very similar to Naked from the first palette, however it's a tiny weeny bit darker. It's the perfect base colour for a beautiful neutral smokey eye, which is my favorite smokey eye to rock ;)

Faint is a darker brown shade which is the perfect crease colour for a smokey eye look. It's also a stunning shade to apply all over the lid blended out. Mixed with Venus would be a beautiful natural shade on the lid. 

Crave is the final shade in the palette, it's a matte black but when swatched comes up slightly grey tones. Perfect to be applied to the outter V for a defined sultry eye look. It's a handy black shade which could also be used as an eyeliner. 

I have always been a fan of the Urban Decay NAKED range and this palette is no different. It's the perfect size, you can create lots of lovely looks with it and the eyeshadows and super pigmented. It's a great little palette and a lovely change to the other two palette as they contain more shimmer shadows. If you love matte shadows then this is perfect for you. However, price wise i'd have to say it is a litte up their considering the size, although the eyshadows pans still hold the same amount of shadow to the other two palettes.


Here is an image from my Instagram from a few weeks ago (@SophiaMeola) it my little Evolution picture of the NAKED palettes :D

What do you think to the Naked Basics palette? Have you snatched one up yet?

  17. Thats really good that the assistant did your makeup & showed you have to use this. I also love how small this is. It looks so cute. I have only heard good things about this palette & I need to stop going in & looking at it & buy it, I would get so much use out of it.
    I only have the first Naked palette and love the quality of those shadows.
