The Urban Decay naked basics palette includes 1 shimmer highlight color, aka VENUS, and 5 matte colors. 5 of the 6 colors in this palette were never before seen in other palettes except for FOXY, which was included in the Naked 2 palette.
I appreciate the fact that Urban Decay always includes a mirror in the palettes. If you’re running out of time in the house to apply your make-up, be thankful for the mirror. It helps a ton— I know. Aren’t these colors beautiful? This palette is a great stand alone palette, meaning you can create a variety of eye looks using just these colors, or f you own any of the other Naked palettes, you can use some of those colors as well, or any other eye shadows you own. One thing I love about these amazing matte shadows is that they are NOT chalky! I’ve been using this palette daily & at times include half-baked, one of my favorite eye shadows from UD.
Walk of Shame- sandy color with a hint of light pink.
Naked 2 is a taupe, brown with some gray & a matte finish.
It had nice pigmentation & a soft, smooth texture.
Crave is a dark black with brown undertones and a matte finish.
It was very soft, smooth, and nicely pigmented.
I love using faint & crave to create a really nice smokey eye!

an eye look using all the colors in the palette, and added LASHES IN A BOX falsies 🙂
I am so in love with the falsies too! I’m wearing the #4’s. http://www.lashesinabox.com/
Overall, this is the best palette for daily use & to even carry around in your travel make-up bag or to just keep in your purse. The matte eye shadows are very easy to blend & the highlighter is to die for. Literally probably one of my favorite urban decay eye shadows! The price is great in comparison to the Naked 1 and Naked 2 palettes (even though I recommend those as well). I religiously buy Urban Decay palettes! Especially, the Naked collection! I love them way too much! I believe this should definitely be in every girls’ makeup bag!
*If you are a fan of neutral & matte color eye shadows… I highly recommend that you go out & purchase this palette. It is amazing! 5 STARS all the way for these palette! This is one palette that I will repurchase whenever I run out! Can’t live without it!
PROS: smooth application, pigmentation is great, compact, easy to use, affordable.
CONS: i wish a mini brush could have been included in the palette, or even an eyeliner.
I hope this review was helpful & have an amazing day!!
