I always tend to steer towards Mac Cosmetics when I want a new eye shadow, but as I had heard such great things about Urban Decay’s palettes I decided to treat myself. The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette looked perfect for my needs, as for everyday wear I love a matte neutral shade.
I love ‘Orb’ by Mac, which I use daily for a base and found that Urban Decay’s ‘Walk of Shame’ was a good match for this. I also love ‘Naked Lunch’ by Mac which I have also run out of, and Urban Decay’s ‘Venus’ is a good match for this.
Some of the colours in the swatch below are hard to see, but this is the beauty of this palette. The light neutral shades are perfect as eye shadow bases.
This little palette is great value for money in comparison to buying single eye shadows and has a handy mirror in the lid. I can see myself using all of the colours regularly, but my favourite has to be the light shimmery Venus.
