If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (or both: urbanumbrella29), than you likely already know that I recently received the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. In fact, if you saw those insta stories or snaps, you probably think I am totally nutty for just how excited I got over them – I think I may have even used the word “jazzed” in one of my snaps. But you know what, I am a makeup addict and that’s how we do!
After trying it out for a few days, shooting a “first impressions” makeup video, as well as a full review I finally feel ready to put up my post and share my thoughts on the Urban Decay’s Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. So… If you’re looking to learn more about the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette than scroll on down!
Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette Review
The Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette has a rose gold hard casing that opens up to 12 eyeshadows, and 1 full sized mirror.
The shadows in the palette are:
Blow (light nude demi-matte / soft sheen)
Blow is a very soft peach tone shadow. It has a slight sheen to it which makes it a great highlighting shadow.
Nudie (soft pink-nude matte)
Nudie is described as a soft pink-nude matte, and I would say that is accurate. It is very light and difficult to see on my fair skintone.
Commando (light taupe-brown matte)
Commando is a very faint light taupe-brown matte shadow. It’s extremely light, and like Nudie, was difficult to see on my skintone.
Tempted (pale brown matte)
Tempted is slightly darker than Commando, but not by much. It is very natural and is great as a really soft transition colour, or light eyelid colour. This shadow is perfect for those wanting to perfect their “no makeup makeup” look.
Instinct (medium pink-taupe matte)
Instinct is described as a medium pink-taupe matte. I would describe it instead as a light pink-taupe matte. This shadow is very soft and is more of a dusty pink shade when applied.
Lethal (reddish brown matte)
One of my favourite shadows from this palette is Lethal. This shadow is described as a reddish brown matte but I would consider is more of a burgundy / eggplant colour. It has really dark and rich notes of burgundy as well as eggplant purple – and it’s simply beautiful.
Pre-Game (pale yellow matte)
Pre-Game is described as a pale yellow matte which is very accurate. It’s very light, and is great as a eyelid colour, or a yellow-tone highlight.
Extra Bitter (burnt orange matte)
My favourite from this palette, Extra Bitter is described as a burnt orange matte. I would agree with that description, and I think it’s a gorgeous shadow for fall. (I know this is going to be one I wear a lot over the next few months!)
Faith (medium warm brown matte)
Faith is a really warm medium brown matte which applies really pigmented and is absolutely gorgeous.
Lockout (rich neutral brown matte)
Lockout is a rich brown that is slightly darker than Faith.
Magnet (smoky gray matte)
Magnet is a smoky gray matte. It has soft blue notes through it which is why I would describe it more as a gunmetal gray matte shadow.
Blackjack (warm black matte)
Every palette needs a rich black shadow, and Blackjack is that in the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. It’s very blendable and buildable.
