Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette

So recently I got the Naked Basics 2 palette, typical, just after I swear i’m finished buying eyeshadow palettes! The packaging says. ‘Use these six indispensable shadows alone or as the starting point for ANY look. Cooler in tone than our original Naked Basics Palette, this taupe-hued palette features five never-before-seen matte shades for lids, crease and liner, plus one demi-matte shade that’s perfect for highlighting.’ So it would seem as though this palette has it all!


The packaging is very compact and has a mirror which fits the lid. Its shadows are about 5mm apart, so they will remain separate. It closes with the satisfying ‘click’ also, so there are no worries that the shadows will get wrecked in your makeup bag. It feels very luxury with the matte-plastic casing.

The ‘demi-matte’ shade, ‘SKIMP’, is so lovely to use as a base and also a highlight for just below the brow and the inner corner! For my crease I love ‘FRISK’ and then the outer corner ‘UNDONE’ is perfect to intensify the look. I use the other colours and blend them in on my lid also.

So, lastly, here are a few looks I have created using the palette over the past few days.

I 100% recommend this palette for girls with darker eyes. I bought it off Feel Unique for £20 (Student Discount, it’s usually £23.)

So have you used the palette? Are there any colours which you have dupes for? I’d loooove to know!
