Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

     I've heard so much buzz about the Urban Decay Naked palettes; many beauty bloggers consider them to be the holy grail of eye shadows. Since I've been on the hunt for the perfect everyday palette, I decided to dip my toes into the high-end makeup pool once again and try out the Urban Decay Naked Basics.

Where to buy:

I bought my palette from Sephora for $36 CAD. This is a travel sized palette, and contains 6 0.05 oz shades; I felt this was a decent amount of product, and it should last me quite a while. The full-size Naked Palette costs $66 CAD and comes with 12 0.05 oz shades, so assuming you're happy with six shades, you're not gaining much value with the full size. However, many feel that this palette is too, well, basic, so if you're looking for a more dramatic look, the gorgeous glittery shades in the full sized palette would probably be more your cup of tea.

First impressions:

The shadows are housed in a bronze compact with a little mirror inside; it's sleek and feels velvety to the touch. It's the perfect size for me, as it doesn't take up to much space in my makeup bag and stows easily in my purse.

The six matte shades included are Venus, Foxy, W.O.S, Naked 2, Faint, and Crave; they're all neutrals and semi-sheer. I really love the versatile shades included in this palette. The shadows are rich, creamy, and pigmented. They feel pretty delightful, honestly. They blend very easily, build nicely, and even though I use a minimal amount, it lasts well into the evening.

Final opinion:

I didn't think this palette could live up to the hype, but I must admit I love it. It is my new everyday palette, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a natural, understated look.
