Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette
For reference, Blow, Nudie, and Commando appear faint because they’re very close to the color of my skin. They’re much more noticeable in person.
I’ve heard mixed reviews about the quality on YouTube, but in my opinion, these are really nice eye shadows. They’re pigmented, smooth, and very easy to work with. All of the colors work well together, and they layer like a dream. My absolute favorites have to be Blow and Extra Bitter, but I honestly really like every single shade in this palette.
When I first swatched this palette, I was worried about the pigmentation of Nudie and Lethal. They both seemed a little bit sheer and patchy in my first finger swatch; however, they’ve become two of my favorite shades in the collection. On my pale skin, Nudie is a stunning transition shade, and it’s slightly sheer quality actually makes it better for blending out the edges of your look. Lethal is another shade that’s much better when applied with a brush. It has a drier consistency than some of the other shades, but it blends nicely and can be layered to increase its intensity. If you were pleased with the quality of the previous Naked palettes, you definitely won’t have a problem with these eye shadows.
Now that I’ve bragged about the color selection and quality of the eye shadows, let’s talk about the amazing packaging. The Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette is one of the prettiest palettes in my collection. The rose gold starburst exterior is absolutely hypnotizing, and the compact size is great for travel and everyday use.
