I didn’t need it but, I got it anyway. Here is the new Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics eyeshadow palette 🙂
This beauty has been on every beauty lovers lust list since it was sneak peaked by Urban Decay earlier in the year.
The Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics eyeshadow palette. It is a bit of a tongue twister of a name, right? I understand the concept of keeping it in the ‘Naked’ family though, it has done pretty well for them. And, there is an abundance of basic shades to be seen so that makes sense too.
The palette itself is super pretty. It has a champagne gold colour plastic case with an embossed logo on the front.
Inside you get a really decent mirror.
And, a little dual ended ‘Blending and Smudger’ brush.
Inside the case sits 12 eyeshadows. Here they with and without the flash.
I have to be honest, before buying the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette, I thought all 12 were matte. The slogan is ‘All Matte. All Naked’ However, there is one satin highlight shade within the palette.
Here are all 12 shades up close and swatched:
One the top, from left to right, we have: Blow (the demi-matte shade), Nudie, Commando, Tempted, Instinct, Lethal.
Then on the bottom row, from left to right, we have: Pre-Game, Extra Bitter, Faith, Lockout, Magnet, Blackjack.
These are all new neutral shades to the Urban Decay Naked family. I have yet to try them on my eyeballs, I will hopefully do that in video form soon. But, on first swatch these shadows are super soft and buttery. There is a few warmer shades in there too which is always appreciated. I know alot of makeup lovers prefer one or the other, but I love that there is a mixture of cool and warm tones within, It gives you the option.
First impressions for me are really good. I am excited to get stuck in and try all the shades properly. If you want to get your hands on the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. You can buy in store or online here from Debenhams. It will set you back €47.
What are your first impressions? Let me know 🙂
