The Naked Basic's palette is the newest release from Urban Decay. This is their very first matte palette and when I heard this, I knew I had to buy it and instantly put it on my wishlist. So, imagine my delight when I spotted a pile of the Naked Basic's palettes at my local Urban Decay counter - I probably let out a little squeal as I speedily ran walked over.
This palette features six shades, four of which are brand new to Urban Decay. From left to right we have..
Venus - New. A demi matte, pearly white.
Foxy - This featured in the Naked2 palette, it's a matte cream.
Walk of Shame - A pale, pink toned nude, matte.
Naked 2 - New. A matte taupe.
Faint - New. A warm, rich dark brown, matte.
Crave - New. A matte black.
All of the shadows are well pigmented, creamy and blend like a dream - perfect shades for a neutral look or evening eyes all in a compact, sleek palette with a large mirror. This palette is ideal for travelling, it's well made, secure and half the size of the other Naked palettes!
Do I think it's an essential purchase? No. Is it a nice luxury item? Yes, of course.
If you have a little extra Christmas money and feel like treating yourself, this will set you back £20 but it's a great purchase. All of the neutral shades you'll need together in a well packaged palette with a nice demi matte to use as a highlight.
