Urban Decay Naked Basics Launches

Urban Decay Naked Basics Launches

Urban Decay launches Naked Basics–the long-awaited, multi-purpose matte companion to Naked. This is the palette that belongs in every woman’s makeup bag–from fans of a neutral matte eye to color fanatics looking for base shades to pair with their bolder shadows. These uber-wearable shades look great on literally EVERYONE. Richer than other mattes, the color goes on with a smooth, luxe finish (never chalky or powdery). We’ve even included one demi-matte shade, Venus, which has the tiniest touch of satin–perfect for highlighting and adding dimension.

  • Venus Soft, off-white demi-matte
  • Foxy Very light yellow/beige matte
  • Walk of Shame Very light pinky nude matte
  • Naked 2 Rosy taupe matte
  • Faint Warm, dusty brown matte
  • Crave Deepest, darkest brown/black matte

Availability: $27 at Urban Decay on November 29th, then elsewhere like Sephora, ULTA, etc.

I would buy this as the matte colors in the naked palettes are the ones I always wind up using up first. The whole “naked phenomenon” is starting to get old, but this is actually really practical and functional. Well played UD

Finally an all matte palette from UD! It should’ve came with a brush or something extra like the other palettes. Will wait for it show up in stores and test it out.

I am pretty sure I will end up getting this. I have original Naked. I do wish there was one or two medium/deeper shades. Seems like from Faint to Crave there should be at least one in between there.

Meh. I have the other naked palettes so I will skip this one. Was not impressed with walk of shame when it came with the customizable palette. Hopefully they will come up with a better color combo.

Besides my personal feelings about UD, I would definitely not buy this because the shades are atrocious. I can’t picture anyone darker than Mariah Carey wearing these, they’d look ashy and dry. Too bad too, because matte eyeshadows are my absolute faves.

Can’t wait for this! I have the orignal Naked palette.. while it’s wonderful I’ve been wanting a matte palette and this just might fit the bill!!

well, Naked & Naked 2 is $60 in Canada (US$50), this naked basic is retail for US$27.

Aside from the interesting matte finish, I’ll pass due to the price tag.

I am a total UD junkie but lately I haven’t been too excited about the choices they’ve been making (getting bought out by l’oreal for one) as a company. Aside from that the lack of midtones makes this palette is pretty underwhelming. I mean come on its a freaking naked palette! It should be awesome. So pass for me. Sticking with my Lorac pro.

I bought the Naked Palette and never used it since I really only wear one lid colour… this one seems perfect for me! All colours I can wear on my lid (except for Crave, of course) that will not go to waste!
