Urban Decay Naked faithfuls demanded more Naked products, so the brand has delivered a few times over. Their latest? A mini eyeshadow palette of slightly cool, basic neutral shades, meant to complement the larger Naked2 palette.Product: Urban Decay Naked2 BasicsPrice: $29We Think:
How It Looks, How It Feels: There’s a reason people are so obsessed with the Naked franchise: Urban Decay does eye makeup right. Neutral colors that not only look good but last all day long make the perfect base for basically any makeup look you want. As the latest addition to the Naked family, this cooler-toned palette comes with five shades of matte, taupe-y neutrals and one shade with a satin finish for highlighting. The shadows are buttery smooth and deliver a healthy amount of pigment without any of that caked-on feeling.How to Use It: The colors blend together seamlessly, so use them separately or all together to create a really neutral-looking, everyday look (no-makeup makeup, anyone?). The shades also make the perfect base to add a pop of brightly colored eyeliner or mascara. You can even use the palette to create a toned-down smoky eye, since the shades range from very nude to a true, cool brown.
Results: From the appearance to the quality, it’s everything you’d want from a basic, taupe shadow palette. The colors are simple but can be used in so many ways, making it worthy as a makeup bag staple.I received Urban Decay Naked2 Basics as a sample, but I would happily purchase it to use in the future.
