Why I haven’t owned one of these sooner, I do not know! This was a Christmas present and I’ve absolutely fallen in love with it as my new and essential best friend. This is the matte Naked Basics palette from Urban Decay, with six gorgeous neutral shades that you can wear alone or build up to your hearts content. Apologies that the brightness of the photos has meant you can’t see the name shades on the palette, but from left to right, the shades are…Venus, Foxy, Walk of Shame, Naked 2, Faint and Crave. It’s also the perfect sized travel palette to get into your handbag, but still with full sized shadow pans!
I’ve been playing with this non-stop for days and really do love it, because for me it has all essential shades I need. Crave and Faint are ideal for liner, I’ve completely given up with liquid eyeliner and on some recent advice, have started using a brush for eyeliner – so Crave works super well for this. Then with Venus, Foxy and Walk of Shame you can create the most gorgeous looks – the colour goes on with a smooth, luxe finish which I absolutely love, there’s none of that powdery, chalky nonsense that you get with so many other palettes. Plus Venus, as I read, has a touch of satin in it which makes it ideal for highlighting. Would I recommend? 100% yes!
