There is no better way to indulge yourself than to splurge on an eyeshadow palette. During my recent trip to the UK I found myself drooling over the Urban Decay display in Debenhams, and after little persuasion walked off with the Naked2 Basics Palette.
This compact, cool-toned palette features 6 matte shadows in taupe hues- perfect for everything from subtle day looks to full on smokey eyes. Whilst both Basic palettes offer this diversity, I was attracted to the Naked2 as the cool greys will naturally enhance and compliment brown eyes.
The packaging features the classic minimalist Urban Decay scrawl in a petite, wipeable tin- a dream compared to the felt casing of the original Naked palette (which I am forever staining.) The palette fits perfectly in your handbag without compromising on product, featuring the same 1.3g per shadow as the Naked palettes. There is also a large in built mirror which is always an advantage.
From left to right, the palette features:
-Skimp: a pale nude satin (the only non-original shade in this palette)
-Stark: a nude-pink matte
-Frisk: a warm grey matte
-Cover: a muted red-brown matte
-Primal: a muted brown matte
-Undone: a deep, smoky brown matte
In true Urban Decay fashion, every shadow is wonderfully buttery, pigmented and buildable. It is an absolute breeze to work with this palette, and with such perfect everyday shades, the possibilities are endless.
At £22, I highly recommend this palette for neutral fans or beginners looking for a higher end fix.
