NAKED Basics Palette

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Hi everyone and a big hello to all of my new followers! I hope you all are enjoying my blog and excited about my giveaway! As promised, I wanted to share my opinion on this palette as I am giving it away to one of you! These swatches are from my own palette as I obviously did not want to touch the one I will be giving away!

The Naked Basics palette is advertised as the matte baby of the other Naked palettes. This one lives up to its name and is very basic: no fancy packaging, very simple, and tiny as a button! There are a mere 6 shadows in this palette, but it is still 6 full eye shadows and it's a perfect essentials palette for anyone and everyone, from someone just starting to wear makeup to a makeup-crazed beauty blogger.

W.O.S - Foxy - Venus

Crave - Faint - Naked 2
The first three colors of the palette are all white-beige, perfect for the base. The very first color, Venus, definitely has some shimmer in it so it's perfect for a highlight under the brow bone and in the corner of the eye. The next two colors, Foxy and W.O.S. are perfect for on the lids and mattifying (is that even a word?) your whole eye. The next three are where the fun comes in and you are able to blend in the crease and dramatize the look.

One important thing to note in this palette is that 4 of the 6 shades are BRAND NEW! Ah, it definitely made me happy to know that I wasn't wasting my money here. The 2 old shades are Foxy and W.O.S. (Walk of Shame), which are such great shades I really don't mind to see them in this palette. Anyone who does not own the Build-Your-Own Palette is definitely in for a treat as W.O.S. was previously the exclusive shade for that palette.

Overall, I'm extremely happy for Urban Decay to have finally released this palette and I personally have been reaching for it everyday since I bought it. For only $27, you are getting 6 full-sized eye shadows that are perfect for the neutral eye lovers like me.
