First Impressions :: UD Naked Basics Palette

Hi Everyone! So I'm pretty sure most of you are aware that Urban Decay came out with their newest "matte" palette called the Naked Basics Palette. 

Their first MATTE palette, featuring six gorgeously Naked neutrals to build on or wear alone—including four never-before-seen shades.

Retails: $27.00 
Description from the Website:
Naked Basics is more than just the long-awaited, multipurpose MATTE companion to Naked. It’s the palette EVERY woman needs in her beauty arsenal. With six stripped-down, Nakedly neutral shadows, it has everything you need for the perfect neutral matte eye—including four totally new and exclusive shades.

Use these shadows to contour, line and highlight to create the right amount of definition for any occasion. Or for the days when you’re craving more color, pair them with your fiercest, boldest shadows. Richer than other mattes, the color goes on with a smooth, luxe finish (never chalky or powdery). There’s even one demi-matte shade, Venus, which has the tiniest touch of satin—perfect for highlighting and adding dimension. 

While this palette is small, we loaded it with full-size shadow pans, just like our other Naked palettes. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane color payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. 

It all comes in a sleek compact (embossed with a pretty, metallic “NAKED” on the front) that has a slight sheen and a suede-like feel that practically begs to be touched. (Hello…how gorgeous will THAT look coming out of your bag?!) Best of all, the slim design is perfect for travel—so you’ll never have to be without these must-have shades.

What you see is what you get: Venus (soft, off-white demi-matte), Foxy (cream bisque matte), Walk of Shame (very light nude matte), Naked2 (taupe matte), Faint (warm, dusty brown matte) and Crave (deepest, darkest brown/black matte). 

Fill Weight: 6 x 1.3g e 6 x 0.05 US oz

I think this is a great palette. The size is awesome and very travel friendly. The packaging is quite sturdy which I love.. and as you can see from the photo above, it's tiny enough to fit in your purse. But don't let it's small size fool you! The pigmentation for such a tiny palette packs a punch. The shadows feel buttery and smooth like all of Urban Decay's eye shadows. This is a great palette to have because even though there are only 6 shades, you can still do quite a variety of looks.. from neutral/natural to downright smokey. 

I'll be posting some looks soon so you can see how versatile this small palette is. I know some people are like ehh, whatever with this palette.. but you can compare this palette to the other two (which I did a review & comparison HERE)

I really like this palette so far! so I'm really glad I got my grubby little hands on this.. it's perfect for me because I like doing neutral/natural looks, but I like how you can go into the darker colors to spice up your look. 

Did you get this palette? Are you going to? What are your thoughts?
