I’ve had this palette just about a year now, so I thought it was time I shared with you my thoughts and some swatches – especially since the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics palette has been released. Firstly the packaging is matte and sleek, thankfully not black like NARS products because they get so dirty after a while, I have still managed to keep this palette looking new!
This palette is so versatile, the shade ‘Naked 2’ always seems to be my base whenever I am using eye shadows, it is perfectly matched to my skin tone and gives the lid a nice matte finish… perfect for starting a smokey eye.
Each shadow is creamy – making them really easy to work with a blend out, they are also heavily pigmented, meaning a little goes a long way. Whenever I go away for a weekend or even on holiday, I always pack this palette! Sometimes it is the only eye shadow I pack, from this one palette I can achieve so many looks, taking casual day time to night time with just a few sweeps of the dark shades. Either before I leave New York or when I get back to university I am thinking of entering the world of vlogging, so I may upload a few different looks I have achieved with this palette.
