Oh Urban Decay, you have once again fascinated me with your awesome product. I’m totally in love with the original Urban Decay Naked Palette, but the velvet packaging is really annoying. And since I also wasn’t impressed at all with the Naked 2, I’ve been waiting for a new launch in this cult favorite collection. This Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette contains 6 neutral shadows with 4 new and exclusive colors and 2 from previous collections.
- Venus (new): shimmering cream color with satin finish
- Foxy (Naked 2): cream bisque with matte finish
- W.O.S (Build Your Own palette): beige shade with matte finish
- Naked 2 (new): soft taupe color with matte finish
- Faint (new): dusty brown with matte finish
- Crave (new): dark black with matte finish
The upgraded rubberized packaging is a huge improvement, and the travel friendly size is easy for storage. Urban Decay does amazing craftsmanship on their product packaging. The letters on the front are actually embossed instead of just an imprint. I really appreciate the fact that Urban Decay decided to not include an eyeliner or makeup brush in this palette, and the giant mirror is easy to use and is very useful. This is a great palette to have for both natural and party looks. I use this for my office makeup and then again to create a smoky eye for after work gatherings.
The shadows have great staying power and gorgeous color payoff. On my oily eyelids, the shadows last for at least 6 – 7 hours, and their texture is extremely smooth and soft. Overall, this is just a great product to have, even if you already own the previous Naked palettes.
