Urban Decay Naked Basics

SO recently I jumped on the Urban Decay 'Naked' bandwagon, after wanting one of these little palettes for aaaages! And I've been loving it so far, and the looks it gives. I especially love the matte colours! The more I use shimmery eye shadow the more I hate it. It does nothing for me, and sinks in after a few hours. 

I bought it from Look Fantastic for a bargainous £18 (with student discount!) and free P&P. For £18 I cant really complain as the quality is great; I really love the packaging, and you can't go wrong with neutral matte shades can you?

My favourite shades are 'Walk of shame' (lovely names!) and 'Faint. 'Walk of Shame' is such a pretty matte peachy shade and looks great on its own or blended with the darker shades like 'Naked' and 'Faint'- I also use 'Faint' for my eyebrows and to give a soft smoky lower lash liner look too. So it's pretty versatile. The only shimmer shade in the palette- 'Venus' is great for an under eyebrow highlighter or the inner corners of your eyes.
Overall I love this palette and think it's well worth the money- even if it did take me ages to finally buy it!
Have any of you tried any of the Urban Decay naked palettes? What did you think? Do you have a favourite?

  1. I've had my eye on this for a while because I only ever wear neutral colours on my eyes but like you I don't particularly like the shimmery ones. Love this review, might have to find myself a student to take advantage of the discount lol :)

    1. I'm such a noob too, I fail at most of my attempts to do a smoky eye. I find this simple enough to use though :)

  3. I really want to buy this! I've always loved shimmery eyeshadow, but now I'm starting to get more into the neutral matte look but there's not that many matte shades available when you buy in palettes. Lovely review.

    1. Me too, I love that I can carry it around in my bag, as opposed to the other Naked Palettes, I hope they make another compact one like this
