Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

Went to Ulta to buy the Naked 2 palette, but as I was looking it turned out that this smaller, more affordable palette had my favorite colour from Naked 2 AND some from Naked. Was very happy with the price, and the palette itself, though it is only matte colours. I like the mattes, though. Very happy.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

      This palatte has a nice mix of basic colors. I tend to use it the most of all the eye shadow palattes I have. It lasts all day. Only issue I have was that after the first couple uses, the mirror popped off. So every time I open it, I have to push the mirror back in to get it to stick on the adhesive...a little annoying.

      You only have to use VERY little and it goes a long way! I will not use another brand ever again as long as this is available.

          Nice, compact

          By asimpleduty

          from Houston, TX

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

          First, the packaging has a nice, soft texture; however, the mirror on mine falls out and doesnt stick to the glue. Great colors in a great light to dark range. Love the matte selection. Very blendable. No noticeable fallout. Compact and good for travel, though youd need to bring your own brush, as this does not have one. Shade-wise this would be a 5/5, but due to mirror issue Ill give a 4.

                Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Basics:

                I really wanted to like this product as I wanted matte and neutral colors. However, it irritated my eyes terribly (eyes burned and totally bloodshot); I was fair and tried it for a few days but problem persisted. Also, difficult to blend-looked choppy on lid, not a really great smokey eye look. Therefore, I had to return it. It has extreme fallout (flaking) - don't know if that is what caused the problem or if I was allergic to an ingredient. I then bought a Stila palette from Ulta and did not have any problem - the redness and irritation has gone away and I found them much easier to blend for that smokey eye look.

                      I applied this backstage to ladies of Korean, Mexican, and English extraction - very different skin tones! But it looked really lovely on all of us. It goes on easily without lots of cast off dust and blended like a dream even when I was using one of my cheaper brushes (but better with a better brush). I am an instant fan!

                          Naked2 Basics' eyeshadows are cooler in tone than those within the Naked Basics palette, but both palettes are still universally flattering on all skin tones! Either would be a great choice for you. We recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store to test the shades of both palettes to see which you prefer:

                        My favorite color in this palate is WOS, which I have used daily, and thus is gone way before the other colors. I can not find it as an individual palate. What is the closest match to WOS?
