URBAN DECAY NAKED BASICS PALETTE


This sleek compact palette is the newest addition to Urban Decays successful Naked collection. It contains six very versatile shades for a neutral to dramatic eye look.
The first eyeshadow (from left to right) is called ‘Venus’ which has a slight sheen to it. This off-white shade can easily add a natural glow to your chosen eye look and accompanies the other matte colours very well.
The second one is called ‘Foxy’. This is a cream shade ideal for highlighting the brown bone and to diffuse the other colours together.
Nearing the middle is ‘Walk of Shame’ and this is a pink nude tone for, again, highlighting the brow bone or for use on the lid area.
Next is ‘Naked 2’ which I would describe as a light taupe brown and great for all over the lids, into the crease and also as a very subtle eye liner along the lower lash line.
‘Faint’ is a deeper shade of ‘Naked 2’ and can be used to add more depth to a neutral eye look or for a gradual smoky eye.
Lastly is ‘Crave’ which is described as a very deep black brown. It’s always good to have a shadow like this in a palette. This colour can be used as a liner or for contouring the crease. The options are endless!
Overall the colour pay off is fantastic. All shades have a velvety feel to them and can be used together or with other colour shadows. The size is travel friendly and it also comes with a mirror in the lid. The packaging can be easily cleaned and it has a study feel.
This product is a great addition to any eyeshadow collection and the price is great for the quantity.
