This ever so popular palette has been on my wishlist for ages and I finally have my hands on it, thanks to a lovely girl on twitter. I asked if anyone was selling any of Urban Decay NAKED palettes and the lovely Kat from talesofapaleface got back to me, telling me she had the Basics palette for sale. I instantly said yes and here it is! My first NAKED palette! :).
First lets talk about the looks of the palette. It it smaller than the other NAKED palettes but of course this is because it only has half the shades. It's so small in fact, it fits in the palm of my hand.
I like the fact that it's small as it means its the perfect size for carrying around or traveling and it doesn't take up too much space in my makeup bag.
The palette itself is made out of a slight rubbery material which I can image will get mucky quite quickly as it's not really the material which can be wiped clean.
When you open it up you are greeted with a lovely big mirror, which I love and the 6 gorgeous matte shades.
Venus is described as a soft, off-white, Foxy is described as a cream bisque, Walk of Shame is described as a very light nude, Naked 2 is described as a taupe, Faint is described as a warm, dusty brown and Crave is described as a deepest, darkest brown/black.
These are the loveliest of shades and create such a gorgeous neutral smokey eye. Easy to wear day to day but will also look great for a night out!
For me I feel this is the perfect palette to have in your kit if you are a beginner, like I am or just a big lover of neutral shades.
Urban Decay Basics Palette costs £20 and you can view it here.
