Urban Decay

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.


My favorite eyeshadow/palette that I own. If you're into natural color and matte ones at that, do yourself a favor and pick this up! If I could only have one palette in my makeup collection, it would be this one! Love love love and worth every single penny!

Anna E.'s Review Image

This is THEE best neutral pallet I've ever gotten. I use Venus as a highlight color for brow bone and inner corner. I'll use foxy as a matte highlight or just as a brighter. I'll use w.o.s. (Walk Of Shame) has a good all around matte nude color to neutralize my lid. Also I'll use naked as just a crease color. I'll buff it in really well and it just creates a really nice depth to my eyes. I actually use faded as my eyebrow color but you can also use it to build intensity in the outter corner and finally, I'll usually use crave as an eyeliner or as a tightliner! But again you can use crave to build intensity! If you're looking to buy a pallet for good neutral shades I would recommend this one every time! The color pay off from the actually eyeshadow is so great! It defiantly beats any drugstore eyeshadow I've ever used! If in this pallet you're not really looking for darker browns I would look at the new Naked Basics 2 pallet that Urban Decay just came out with. Again I'm just so impressed with the different colors they put in but still staying neutral. Go check that one out as well but seriously if your thinking about buying it the basics pallet. Just do your self a favor and buy it.

Compact and everyday use!

It's basically just the most important colors you need for an everyday look. You can easily go from a day to night look with this and it's so tiny you can always keep it inside of your purse in case for touchups. Absolutely a must have.

Looovee it!!!

Its my everyday pallet! Love it and it has amazing colours! Totally recommend it for people who are on the go, it also fits perfectly in a makeup bag as well :)

I love this palette alot because You can create any look as you wish to day time to night time totally recomend it and i also like it because it is travel friendly :)!!
