I was looking for a matt neutral palette for a long time and when I started doing some research I came across the Urban Decay Naked Basics Eye shadow Palette. So I made sure I ask a friend who was travelling from the US to get it for me.
It’s a small palette which contains six full-sized eye shadows: Venus (soft, off-white semi-matte), Foxy (beige matte), Walk of Shame (nude matte), Naked 2 (taupe matte), Faint (light brown matte), and Crave (deep brown/black matte). I was surprised that such a small palette contains 6 full size colors.
I love the packaging. It’s a very good palette for travel or to carry in your hand bag. The case holds well especially the abuse the bags go through the travel. The case has a kind of rubberized finish.
The texture of the shadows is phenomenal; it’s really smooth and silky. The powder is finely milled and so very easy to apply. All the shadows are highly pigmented and so small amount goes a long way. Since the palette has both light and dark shades, it works really well with all skin tones and eye color.
I have been applying the shadows for past few days to work. It stays on without creasing for good 8 hrs. and I don’t apply any primer or base. My eyelids tend to get oily during the day and so most of the eye shadows don’t last for more than 3 hrs. This one doesn’t budge. I’m very impressed and will be my go-to palette for a more daily use.
I’m really happy with the palette and will give it 5/5. I have been reaching out to it almost everyday, especially during the work days.
