REVIEW: Naked Basics



Hello! So I finally got my hands on the beautiful Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I was ooing and aahing whether to get this one, or the original Naked palette, but being an Urban Decay virgin I thought I would go with the basics! The colours are all quite matte, apart from 'Venus' which is lovely as a highlighter as it's a bit more shimmery. This palette is so versatile and so many looks can be achieved with it, I haven't had much chance to play around with it yet, i've only used it for my every day sort of look, but I love it! The colours are so strong so not much is needed at all at they stay on a long time which is always a plus! I would 100000% recommend this palette to anyone who hasn't yet tried it, or any of the Naked palettes! Or for beginners as the colours are really wearable and easy to create a 'nude' look!

(Swatches for the 6 colours in the palette, my favourite is Venue & Naked 2!)


This is quite a basic look that I created using Venus, Naked 2 & Faint. (The camera doesn't do this any justice, it makes it look awful and blotchy, it doesn't look like this in real life!) but is a subtle look :) I hope this has helped anyone who was deciding whether to buy it or not!

What is your favourite palette?

  4. I have naked basics as I never wear shimmery eye shadows so the larger palettes were a waste of money for me! I love it so much perfect for everyday wear :)

    1. that's the same with me! I hate things that are too shimmery, I think I might get the other palettes one day but for now I'm sticking with basics! xxx

  5. I was also looking at this palette and wasn't sure about it since I have the Naked 2 and 3 palette. It looks gorgeous btw! I was also wondering what camera did you use to take this photo? and if you used anything to fix this picture.
    I am sorry I am asking this, I am a new blogger and I have 2 posts up but I will be doing more of course and try to get youtube videos out there to also.

    1. I would recommend it, however I don't have any of the other palettes! and I use a canon 550D to take my photos and just adjust the brightness slightly if needed :) good luck with you blog! xxx

  6. Thank you for this review. I have debated on whether to get this basic palette or not. I already have so many neutral colors but I think it might would be nice to have all in one palette.

  10. I don't know which of the Naked's to get, I'm not sure if I can justify any but I adore the looks of the basics. Do you own any of the other Nakeds?
