Review: Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Urban Decay has added a few products to their Naked line over the last few monhs, all of which I have been quite excited about. A few product launches ago, Urban Decay launched the Naked Basics palette, six eye shadows that can be used alone or alongside the Naked or Naked 2 palettes. This palette claims to feature six matte shades, however there is one satin finish shade - Venus.

Left to Right: Venus, Foxy, W.O.S., Naked 2, Faint, Crave
One thing that Urban Decay does that I hate is including a shade from a previous palette in a "new" palette. They did this with Naked 2, in which they included Half Bake from the original Naked. Well, Urban Decay has done it again with Naked Basics, where they include Foxy from Naked 2. Why,  Urban Decay, why do you do this???

The shades included are:
  • Venus - sating flesh tone 
  • Foxy - matte light yellow
  • W.O.S. - matte flesh tone
  • Naked 2 - matte cool brown, almost taupe
  • Faint - matte warm brown
  • Crave - matte blacked brown
I really do like this palette, the only downfall is the packaging texture. The texture of the packaging reminds me of NARS packaging, minus the dirtiness. It's compact and travel friendly, as well as a complimentary palette to any palette that you own.

Cost: $27
Availability: permanent 
Available at Sephora, Ulta,

Have you picked up this palette? What is you favorite look to create using Naked Basics?

Until next time XO
