When I heard about the NAKED Basics over the summer, I was really excited for its release, but when the release date came for it, my excitement fell short because of the shades in the palette. When I went to Sephora this weekend and saw it, I had to buy it because it was so small, cute and was a good value considering it is $27 for 6 full-sized eyeshadows.
Okay, now onto the product
The six shades in the palette is: Venus, Foxy, Walk of Shame, Naked 2, Faint, and Crave. It is housed in a tiny compact with a rubbery feeling (kind of like NARS), so it is convenient to take it on the go.
*note: Faint came with the little scrapping on the bottom of it :(
Overall, the value of this palette is amazing. Each Urban Decay eyeshadow retails for $18 individually, which makes this a $108 value. If you have both the NAKED and NAKED2 palettes, this palette is not necessary since there are similar shades (not dupes) from the other palettes, but these matte shades will compliment the colors in the other palettes very well. I like using mattes with shimmer, which is what I usually do all the time because I do not like too much shimmer on my lids. My three favorite shades from this palette is Venus, Naked 2 & Faint, and I see myself using those the most. All the others ones are nice, but I can definitely do without them since they do not apply on me as well. I like that Urban Decay came out with an "all-matte" palettes (not all 6 are matte), but I was really hoping for a colorful matte because Urban Decay is supposed to be "Feminine, Dangerous, and Fun" and these shades are not really well.. fun. I also still wish Urban Decay named this palette as half-naked, because this is half the size of both their NAKED palettes.
This retails for $27 and is currently sold at urbandecay.com and Sephora stores (they do not have a display out yet,so you might have to ask them to take it out from the back).
What do you think about the NAKED basics? Are you going to get it? Which NAKED palette is your favorite?
