Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette

This is the first new release I've actually bought on time, I'm always so late at buying things. When I saw this palette was going to be on Cohorted.co.uk about a week before the actual release date I knew that I just had to buy it. I'd been dying to try an Urban Decay Naked palette for ages and I just knew it was finally time to splash the cash and buy it. As it was on Cohorted, this also means I got it discounted, so I ended up paying £15.40 for this palette, which is such a steal!

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette

It's taken ages to write this blogpost but I really wanted to try it out before I posted anything. I wasn't disappointed with this palette at all. It's truly amazing. The shade range is perfect for me, it's full of cooler toned shades which suit my skin so much. From using the palette for a few weeks, I've found the shadows are so pigmented and apply really nicely, and they're easy to blend and have pretty much no fallout at all.

The packaging of this palette is simple and sleek, which I love. I also like the size of the palette, it's small which makes it easy to slip into my makeup bag and not even notice it's there, which is great as I insist on taking all the makeup I'm wearing with me everywhere incase of emergencies. It's better to be safe than sorry I guess. The clip on the palette is amazing too, you're probably thinking what the hell, but the amount of palettes I've bought that the clip is awful and breaks instantly usually leading to eyeshadow everywhere is unbelievable. I have no worries about this palette breaking anytime soon.

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette Swatches
T-B
SKIMP
STARK
FRISK
COVER
PRIMAL
UNDONE
As you can see from the swatches, they're very pigmented and apply evenly. (Undone looks like it doesn't, but that's my awful swatching skills oops). After using the palette, my favourite combinations have been; Skimp on the browbone and in the inner corner, it is literally the most amazing highlight, Stark as a base or all across the lid and Primal or Cover in the crease. I used Frisk as an eyeshadow colour for a few days, but it's slightly too dark for me, but it could work for someone with slightly darker hair. I'm yet to use Undone properly, but I think it'll be another crease colour, for more evening style makeup, or as a definer along the upper and lower lashes. 

This palette is well worth the money, I'd recommend you pick it up if you get the chance!

Do you prefer the Naked Basics or Naked Basics 2?

  1. I have never tried any of the Naked palettes (I feel like a disgrace to the beauty blogging community) and I wish I'd caught this on Cohorted as it looks amazing, although I am having a lot of trouble making an account with them which is very annoying.

  5. I'm still not sure about this pallet, I think the shades look too matt and dull for me, although does look a good pallet for autumn.
