Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette Review

Every time Urban Decay release a new “Naked Palette” the beauty world go crazy as they know if it’s anything like the previous ones they have released, it will be amazing. Since this was released I have been itching to get my hands on it as it looks beautiful and I think your should never underestimate the power of matte eyeshadow.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette Review

The Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette (£22) contains five matte shades and one shimmer shade which are cooler in tone than the original basics palette. They are all highly pigmented, long lasting and look beautiful! The packaging is a rubberised metallic brown with a darker brown for the writing. It’s small and compact so great if you’re travelling as it will take up barely any room.

The six shades include:

  • Skimp – This is a pale nude with a satin finish which a peach tone to it. I love using this on my brow bone and on the inner corners of my eye.
  • Stark – Peachy nude matte which I like to use on my eyelids to create a natural look.
  • Frisk – Light taupe matte.
  • Cover – Muted red-brown.
  • Primal – Muted brown matte.
  • Undone – A dark smokey brown matte shade that is great to use to achieve a smokey eye and can be used as an eyeliner. It has slightly cool undertones.
Overall I love this palette and it’s got me back into using matte shades as having been mainly using shimmery eye shadows the past few months. I’m definitely going to be using this a lot over the next coming months!

    I love the look of these palettes, they look so cute and small. I have the original Naked Palette but I cannot justify buying another one as they just all look too similar to one another in shades, and I don't wear eyeshadow that often.

    Love the look of this palette looks like such lovely colours to wear everyday to work etc. I feel like Urban Decay can do no wrong in the eyeshadow department as I would never be without my Naked 1 palette!

    Great post! I love this palette, at the moment I'm really liking having 'Primal' in my crease and adding the tiniest bit of 'Undone' and darken it up a bit whilst having 'Skimp' across the cover of the lid and the inner corner to highlight the eye. A perfect everyday palette x
