Hey lovely people. I first of all need to thank you all so much for the huge support you gave me with my first ever youtube video! Today I filmed my 2nd video which should hopefully be going up this week, hopefully by Wednesday! Today though, I’m bringing you a very exciting product review ft. The Naked Basics 2 Palette which I recently purchased from cohorted for only £15.40!! It’s no longer for sale but if you haven’t used cohorted before you need to check it out, they have some amazing products listed at the mo.
So if you haven’t seen the Naked palette before the first one was a selection of warm matte shades whereas the second palette is cool matte shades, I feel this suits my skin colouring much better which is why I waited for them to release a cool palette. The first thing that struck me about this palette was the beautiful Matte packaging. It’s just so sleek and luxurious, urban decay I praise you!! It’s obviously nowhere near as big as the original Naked palette but makes it much easier for travel and storage. Inside alongside a handy mirror you will find 6 beautiful cool toned matte shades.
Skimp is a yellow toned shadow, one of those colours I’d chose to highlight with and for use in the inner crease. Stark is more of a matte nude pink which would make a lovely eyeshadow base. Frisk is such a nice grey matte shade which would look great as a subtle crease colour. Cover is slightly red toned but again this would be a perfect cut crease colour. Primal would work great for darker brows and is a muted brown matte. Undone is the darkest in the palette a deep, smokey brown which would look great as smudged liner or to create a brown smokey eye.
Overall, this palette is just amazing. Every shade reminds me of the Kylie Jenner eye look which her look is obviously huge right now! It’s the perfect handbag size and would be great for you ladies who don’t want glittery ‘out there’ eye makeup. The shadows are brilliant quality and you only need the slightest on your brush, a little definitely goes a long way. I wouldn’t expect anything from else from Urban Decay and I’m very impressed! I think one of my next videos will definitely be an Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics look!
Have you tried the Naked 2 Basics Palette? What’s your favourite shadow?
