Urban Decay's Naked Basics Ultimate Palette Review and Swatches9:23 AM
Happy Friday, ya'll! I for one am very relieved that the end of the week is here. It has been a crazy one. Also, my thoughts and prayers are with anyone impacted by hurricane Matthew. I live in an area where many evacuees are staying and coming through and I can't imagine going through that.
Everyone lost their mind when Urban Decay released their Naked Basics Ultimate Palette. For some reason, I have never been a huge fan of Urban Decay palettes. I'm not exactly sure why. But this one interested me. I think it was because I fell in love with the pictures of Extra Bitter. You'll see why in a minute.
This palette comes with twelve matte shades in warm and cool tones. There are more warmer tones, though. Here are the shades and their descriptions:
- Blow: creamy beige (this one isn't a true matte)
- Nudie: light pinky nude
- Commando: pale taupe brown
- Tempted: light cool brown
- Instinct: pinky taupe
- Lethal: dark plum brown
- Pre-Game: light yellow
- Extra Bitter: burnt orange
- Faith: medium warm brown
- Lockout: neutral brown
- Magnet: true grey
- Blackjack: black
I used a brush for my swatches (Japonesque 231) and I included swatches with and without primer. I'll indicate the captions which is which.
Like I said, I do like this palette. I just don't think it is anything amazing.
I am playing catch up today, so I am hoping to have some more posts up soon, including a ColourPop haul and try on.
See you soon!
