Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette

Urban Decay are on a mission right now to make sure that us lovely ladies have a huge selection of neutral palettes at our fingertips for every occassion. As an owner of the Urban Decay Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3 and Naked Basics palette, it was totally understandable that the Naked 2 Basics palette would come into my possession. A chance meet in Sephora on its launch date of the 28th August, I walked away with the latest offering to add to my growing collection, and the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette does not disappoint.

A small palette filled with five matte shades and one demi matte shade, the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette is totally indispensable for a daytime look. Its a lot cooler than the original Naked Basics palette and it works exceptionally well with the shimmery shades found in the Naked 2 palette. The cool toned taupe hued palette not only offers the same highly pigmented and buttery soft shadows that we are so used to from Urban Decay, but also gives us five brand new shades to play with.

From my working out, I believe that Skimp is the only colour that has been released before and the rest of the shades are exclusive to the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette. Here’s the lowdown!

Skimp is a pale nude satin
Stark is a nude pink matte
Frisk is a warm grey matte

Cover is a red brown matte
Primal is a muted brown matte
Undone is a deep, smoky brown matte

I can see already that the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette will be a firm favourite when it comes to a daytime eye makeup look. Matte eyeshadows are so versatile and I find that they stay on a lot longer than those beautiful shimmers that I usually go for. As always, an eye primer is a must and the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is a great primer to help your shadow stay put all day. I’m not sure on the UK release date just yet however it is available at Sephora for $29

  • I will be definitely getting this when it is released in the uk. I asked at my local Urban Decay counter yesterday when it would be released here, and she said that it will be launched on the 1st October.


  • This seems like a definite staple to add to my collection, I seem to wear so much glitter shadow these days need to tone it down! xxx

    • I prefer a shimmer to full on glitter but I am like a magpie for the fun colours!xx

  • These are so pretty, I much prefer matte shadows I think they’re much more wearable. I also really love heroin chic makeup and you can’t get them with shimmers haha!

  • I have Naked, and Naked 3, but don’t own any of the basics palettes – I think this one will be the one I cave in for when it hits the UK! I love the three brown tones!


    • They are so versatile aren’t they 🙂 xx
