Naked Basics


Dangerously Pigmented

The pigment payoff in this palette is perfection! Where else can you find a palette of basics (matte no less) that perform as well as these? I'll tell you where - NOwhere. I don't own a ton of UD, but I do have the other Naked palettes and I think the color payoff is actually better in this one. Not to mention the smaller compact makes it a perfect go-to for travel or on-the-go beauties!! For the price you really can't go wrong with this one. Universally flattering and high quality at a reasonable price - everything a woman is looking for in a cosmetic product.

Pretty Good...Could be warmer tones for women of color

I think this palette is pretty awesome...however the tones would be that much better if they were warmer to bring out the golden tones in women of color's complexion. Sometimes the colors themselves look ashen on my brown skin (which naturally has a lot of golden undertones), thus I have to mix and match with other colors aside from this palette for this to provide a truly "naked" or natural look. Still it is high quality eyeshadow in that it blends to perfection without looking clumpy and wears well for several hours.

Absolutely a must have!

I purchased this from UD online almost as soon as it came out. I love the matte colors my fav is the 3rd one. These are great starter colors or wear alone. I love it so much I'm buying one for my purse too. The 1st shade is a highlight color and the last two I would say are liner. It really is a must have item.

Beautiful and Compact!

I didn't think I was going to need this palette because I already have the first Naked palette and man was I wrong. I love this little thing! The colors in this palette are perfect for a day to night look. The venus highlight color is just beautiful and my favorite color in the whole palette. I find myself pushing all my other palettes away and using this one on a daily basis. The palette is the perfect size for travel and could even fit in your purse! I think it's worth the 27 bucks!

Must have...

I rushed out and bought this a few days after it came out. As I was disappointed with my Naked 2 pallette and all the shimmery shadows. I love the all the matte colors in this palette, the pigments are awesome. I have used this almost everyday since purchasing the palette. This is a must have for any make up collection.

Perfect for beginners or on the go

I love this palette! Beautiful colors, highly pigmented, super buttery and blendable, perfectly compact, and huge mirror (for its size). This is totally worth the money! I LOVE IT!!! Perfection

Naked Basics Palette

An absolute must and a staple for any make up collection. I use this palette regularly when I am pressed for time or just when I want a long lasting natural look. It's so easy to just slip into my purse so that's a bonus! Overall an amazing product and the colors are beautiful.

Great for travelling

This palette is a saviour for those who are constantly on the go. This is my well-loved palette that I trust for that quick smoky eye or just neutral eye. The shadows are highly pigmented. That is a plus sign. 'Naked 2' is great for contour, as it has greyish tone that looked like a natural shadow. 'Crave' is beautiful for smoky eye or liner. 'Venus' for highlighting. The possibilities are endless. Also, it comes with almost all matte shadows therefore suitable for mature ladies.

One of the Best Matte Palettes

I've tried a few matte palettes, and this one is by far my favorite. These are all truly matte with no trace of shimmer. The payoff is true to color and fairly pigmented, but not as yellow-toned as Urban Decay's photo of the palette. The colors are blendable but slightly dry and powdery. It's a great palette for those who like more natural looks, are just starting to use makeup, or someone who doesn't quite want the whole Naked Palette.


My holy grail eyeshadow palette... I am the type of girl that loves neutrals over bold colors, and this palette is no exception. What's better is that this palette is all matte shadows. A very natural palette that I can easily go from daytime to nighttime with this one palette
