Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Hello dearies! When I listed the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette as one of my February favorites, I realized I never posted a review or swatches of it... so that is exactly what I'm doing today.

When this palette first released, I was excited because 5 of the 6 shadows in the palette were matte. And although it was advertised as a companion to the Naked and Naked 2 palettes, I was ecstatic to use it on its own. The palette has a soft rubbery feel that reminds me of the NARS packaging. And the mini-sized packaging is great for travel.

- Venus is a vanilla with a satin finish.
- Foxy is a matte vanilla beige.
- W.O.S is a matte pink beige.
- Naked 2 is a matte light taupe.
- Faint is a matte warm brown.
- Crave is a matte black. I never use this shade.

Swatches:
PROS
- travel friendly
- pigmented
- easy to blend
- long wearing

CONS
- scent

I probably have dupes somewhere in my collection, but the fact that these shades are all in one palette makes it super convenient. I think it would be a great addition to your collection regardless if you own the Naked palettes or not. You'd be able to create so many different looks from day to night and it's perfect for on the go!

I absolutely adore this palette and would recommend it to all the neutral lovers out there.

Thanks for stopping by!
