I just couldn't resist the hype when I heard that Urban Decay were bringing out a new Naked palette. I've had both the original Naked (although I sold it as I didn't use it enough) and Naked 2 (which I still love) palettes, and nude shades are my favourite and what I'm most likely to reach for every day, so it was inevitable that I was going to love Naked Basics.
While I was ordering the new palette I took the chance to pick up a few other Urban Decay bits from my wish list. I bought a new primer potion - I must be on about my tenth tube of this by now - and I'm finally trying out the De Slick makeup setting spray after thinking about getting it for ages. I'll do a review on that once I've tried it a few times.
Naked Basics has six shades all designed to be a perfect base for a neutral eye look.

I'm so pleased that I bought this palette and am already busy trying out different looks with this each day and seeing how it works with my other favourite neutral shadows.
Foxy, W.O.S (walk of shame) and Naked 2 are the shades that really stand out for me and I know I'll get a tonne of use from them. Faint looks like a pretty great crease shade too and I'm sure Crave and Venus will double up as a liner and highlight colour. It's so nice to buy a palette that doesn't have any rubbish shades, it feels like much better value for money if you'll use all of the colours.
Urban Decay shadows are always of excellent quality in my opinion and these measured up to that expectation. They're all buttery soft and heavily pigmented.
I'm no expert when it comes to eye shadow and smoky eyes - I'm much more of a trial and error girl! But, if I come up with anything that I think looks passable, I'll take some snaps and share what I've created soon.
