The Naked Palette has a new sidekick!

Urban Decay has created an all matte palette meant to compliment the Naked and Naked2 palettes, the Naked Basics Palette.  Lots of people get excited over shimmery colours, but having a good cadre of versatile mattes are super important.  By incorporating multiple textures in your look, you could be doing makeup like a pro! I especially like using mattes in the crease as transition colours or to deepen a smoky eye without adding anymore shine.  Sometimes I just want a matte look to wear with matte lips.

Urban Decay launches Naked Basics—the long-awaited, multi-purpose MATTE companion to Naked. This is the palette that belongs in every woman’s makeup bag—from fans of a neutral matte eye to color fanatics looking for base shades to pair with their bolder shadows.  These über-wearable shades look great on literally EVERYONE. Richer than other mattes, the color goes on with a smooth, luxe finish (never chalky or powdery). We’ve even included one demi-matte shade, Venus, which has the tiniest touch of satin—perfect for highlighting and adding dimension.

Our best-selling Naked and Naked2 palettes are proof that neutral eyes are anything but boring. Ever since we launched them, fans have been BEGGING us for a matte palette of neutral Eyeshadows, and this sexy little set answers the call! But don’t be fooled—you can do a lot with these colors. Wende loves to use these shadows to contour and define her eyes and then add a bright pop of color for extra drama.

The sleek, soft-touch case has a slight sheen and feels like suede. Small and compact so it travels well, this must-have palette is packed with six full-sized shadows. Naked Basics includes four totally new and exclusive shades, one shade previously only available in another palette and one all-time staff favorite. Each Eyeshadow features our brand new Pigment Infusion system™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

The colours:

  • VENUS – soft, off-white demi-matte
  • FOXY – very light yellow/beige matte
  • WALK OF SHAME – very light pinky nude matte
  • NAKED2 – rosy taupe matte
  • FAINT – warm, dusty brown matte
  • CRAVE – deepest, darkest brown/black matte

Naked Basics Palette in now available at Sephora, ULTA, select Macy’s and at these online outlets: sephora.com, ulta.com, macys.com, beauty.com, urbandecay.com and it costs US$27.

I think that is a great deal!! Six full sized shadows for $27!  This will make a great Christmas stocking stuffer. And the new UD eye shadow formulas are amazing!,  Very soft and buttery.  I will be checking this out!
