A new Urban Decay Naked palette coming out is always exciting. I had hit pan on several of the shades in the original Naked Basics palette, so I felt pretty sure that I was going to like the Naked Basics 2, especially because I’d heard that the shadows were more cool-toned. I think I like the second palette even better than the first!
Although I used three of the shades from the original palette – W.O.S., Naked 2, and Faint – a ton, I wasn’t such a fan of Venus and Foxy. Venus was too shimmery for me and Foxy was much too yellow for my skintone. I would use my MAC Brule with the palette to make it work. But I love the two lightest shades in the Naked Basics 2 – Stark and Skimp! Stark is very similar to MAC Brule and makes a great matte highlight or to blend out shadows.
I also love the three cool-toned taupey neutrals, Frisk, Cover & Primal. Soo pretty! The darkest shade, Undone, is a wearable medium gray which I will likely get more use out of than Crave from the original palette.
Both of the Urban Decay Naked Basics palettes are $35 CAD each.
