      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

      I have oily lids so I have to use an eyeshadow primer with all shadows, these are no exception. Primer of choice at the moment is the Milani one. This is a great collection of matte neutrals that I feel can go as natural or dramatic as I might want. My only gripe is that these are technically not ALL matte, as there is one light shimmery shade. The shadows are a bit powdery when I put my brush into them, but tapping off the excess before applying mitigates fallout. Bonus: I was happy to find that the shade Naked 2 is a great cool taupe shade for lightly filling in my dark brown brows.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

        Of all the Naked pallets, Naked Basics is my favorite. Perfect size for travel. Beautiful, complimentary, neutral shades for everyday use, but the colors are varied enough to layer for a dramatic evening eye. All colors are matte (no shimmer)except for a white that is perfect for highlighting. The colors are heavily pigmented and apply easily. My only issues with Naked Basics are related to my skin tone/type and really don't reflect poorly on the product. One of the shades is a yellow tone that I haven't figured out how to use. Probably just not a good color with my skin tone. Last, my skin is EXTREMELY oily and the colors tend to migrate into greasy lines in the creases of my eyes by the end of the day. I have this issue no matter if I wear primer or not and no matter the brand of eye shadow however Urban Decay does seem to last a bit longer than most. Overall, I love it and would highly recommend.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

          I rarely review products. It has to be something pretty remarkable and this eyeshadow kit is. As an over 40 woman, frost shades are no longer flattering for me. It is very difficult to find a matte kit that has beautiful, blendable colors. This is it! If I have to say anything negative, it would be that an applicator would be nice, but this in no way detracts from the item itself. I also wish that I could purchase some of the colors separately or in duos. Overall, excellent product!

          Great to tone down shimmery shadows and also look pretty worn on their own. It's hard to find good matte shadows but these truly would work for anyone I believe. I incorporate them into my daily makeup look. I'm very happy I purchased them I give them a lot of use.

              Great and convenient eyeshadow to have. Can also be used for highlighting and contouring the face, as the colors are very matte and without glitter (except for Venus, which is still fairly subtle)

                  I brought naked 3. I love the colors, but when I apply the shadow it I realize some has fallen on my cheeks. I have shine on my cheeks. How can I apply the shadow without that happening?

                    A:

                    Smooth a medium shade like Foxy, W.O.S., or Naked 2 onto your eyelid from the lash line up to eye crease. Blend a darker shade like Faint or Crave (more dramatic) into the crease. Use light shade Venus to highlight the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes.

                • Q:

                  Which type of eye shadow would be best for women in their 40s and 50s? Would powders or cream shadows be more flattering? Also, matte or shimmer? I love the Naked Basics colors, but don't want to look washed out. Is there a tutorial on how to apply? I want to look naked/polished, just not too made up - - - naked face look but better please! Thanks for your help!

                  p.s. I have good skin and minimal facial lines, but don't want to accentuate any sign of aging. ;)

                    A:

                    We recommend applying Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Item #: 2260927) prior to eye shadow to minimize the appearance of wrinkles in 8 weeks while providing a silky smooth feel and extending the wear and vibrancy of your eye shadow to 24 hours! Primer Potion can be used with powder or cream formula shadows for crease-free wear. We would recommend matte and subtle shimmer shades.

                    The shades in this palette are so neutral, blendable, and universally flattering that you really can't go wrong with application! If you visit your nearest ULTA store, we would be happy to give you some application tips in person, if you prefer!
