Naked Basics

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

When I bought the naked 2 palette I was disappointed because it was too shimmery, this is perfect! All matte, so pigmented! Perfect very small and compact perfect for everyday use, even I use it everyday!

Must have matte shadows!

I typically prime my eyes with Cargo Cosmetics' eye primer. I use the shades to create a beautiful smokey eye. I dip my eyeliner brush in water and use the black shadow to create winged eyeliner which I set with a clean brush and more dry shadow. I have very long (14-16 hr) days and my eyeliner remains intact with no fallout from the shadows!
