Today I am going to review and swatch the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette.
Name of the Product – Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette.
Product Claims –
When UD junkies cried out for a palette of matte neutrals, Naked Basics delivered—and left them begging for MORE shades. (And we couldn’t deny them!)
Cooler in tone than the original, Naked2 Basics complements Naked2 perfectly. We loaded this indispensable palette with six TAUPE-hued matte neutrals, including five never-before-seen shades. These shadows are neutral enough for anyone, from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin. So versatile you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it, Naked2 Basics is the kind of palette you’ll reach for again and again.
Every shade in Naked2 Basics features our Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability. While many brands’ matte shadows tend to be chalky or powdery, EVERY shade in Naked2 Basics has a rich, buttery feel for the perfect application. It even includes one shade with a slight satin finish, Skimp, that’s ideal for highlighting and adding dimension.
Like the original, Naked2 Basics comes in a sleek, soft-touch case that has a suede-like feel and a slight sheen. It’s small and compact so it travels well, yet we still packed it with six FULL-size shadows.
What You Get: Skimp (pale nude satin), Stark (nude-pink matte), Frisk (warm gray matte), Cover (muted red-brown matte), Primal (muted brown matte) and Undone (deep, smoky brown matte).
My Thoughts –
Naked 2 Basics is a taupe-based matte palette with 6 cooler taupe and rosy-brown shades. The intensity of each shade increases gradually making it a favorite of a neutral/nude makeup lover. These shades will suit someone with blue or green eyes. Also since the colors are taupe it does not show up on my pigmented eyelids. I apply very very light concealer (like 3 shades lighter) to create a good neutral canvas. Even then Stark and Frisk doesn’t show up as I would like them to. The pigmentation is good and it keeps the eye looks subtle. With these colors there is no risk of going overboard except for undone.
The texture of urban decay naked 2 palette eye shadows is incredibly smooth. It feels like butter honestly. They blend like dream except for undone. Undone applies slightly patchy. You can see that in the swatches.
Skimp and Stark makes a good eye brow highlight.
Frisk and Cover makes a good contour/crease shade.
Primal is good for overall lid application.
Undone can specially be used along with Cover to get a smokey eye.
Where to buy –
Priced at 29$.
Try out the new variant from urban decay naked ultimate basics which is a better option as it has 12 shades and amazon sells it at a much reasonable price.
