This review has been a long time coming as I had this on my christmas list.. and thankfully Santa delivered!
I have finally got my hands on the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics, the matte eyeshadow palette of my dreams. It has 12 beautiful matte shades, yes you read correctly 12, and even has a good brush! Each shade is wearable, even for people like me who tend to stick to more simple eye looks. The dark purple in the top right hand corner is called ‘Lethal’, when dusted lightly in the outside corners it’s great to smoke things up a bit if you’re feeling brave.
All the colours are new to the Urban Decay catalogue and can only be found in this palette (how fancy). I had to think about purchasing this for a while, as I already had the first two naked basics, but this had so much more to offer and I didn’t feel like I was getting another of the same! The colours are so varied, yet would suit all skin tones… can you tell I love it?
The colours; TOP – BLOW, NUDIE, COMMANDO, TEMPTED, INSTINCT, LETHAL.
BOTTOM – PRE-GAME, EXTRA BITTER, FAITH, LOCKOUT, MAGET, BLACKJACK.
As ever with Urban Decay eye shadows they are so easy to blend and have great colour payoff to them. If you are making your first dip into eyeshadows, or even if this palette number 101, I highly recommend this palette with so much to play around with and experiment. Also.. the packaging! It is a gorgeous rose gold design and the mirror is such a good size for traveling… well worth the price tag if you ask me!
Have you tried this? Or have you got any good eye palette recommendations? Let me know!
