Urban Decay's NAKED Basics - Page 3

post #61 of 153

On the topic of Naked Basics - this palette is too little to late from UD. The colors are not unique and I can already tell I have multiple dupes of each one. The last four shades look spot on the same as the mattes in Stila's In the Light palette. 

 

I like the idea of a "just the basics" palette, but I think it would have been better with an even mix of mattes and shimmers, like the Wet n Wild Vanity palette, or with more unique matte shades, like theBalm Meet Matt(e) palette.

I'm definitely going to get this--but I'm going to wait til Jan/Feb when it's avail at Sephora.  I plan to get VIB for the first time and want to maximize it.  I use my Naked palette every day, but I always wish there were more matte options.  When my skin is drier in the winter, I don't think shimmer/sparkle looks all that spectacular.  

 

If I didn't already have the Naked palette, the Lorac Pro Palette would be very tempting.  I like that there's a balance of matte and shimmery.

I barely made dents on my Naked1 and 2 palettes. I have other palettes from theBalm and tarte as well. I may get this but not soon.

 

For those who want to get some UD products, i read UD has free shipping promo for purchases $35 or more until the year ends!

I want it, but my skin is too pale for most of the lighter shades. I think the shades are nice compliments to the other palettes, but I don't find them truly special in any way.

The shades look AMAZING on you. Were these multiple swatches of each color? I got my palette today and the lighter shades don't show up on my skin tone very well unfortunately.

Ah...good point about the primer (which I always use).

I just swatched them dry on my wrist quickly...but maybe primer will help intensify the colors.

 

Thanks! I look forward to your blog post!

Keep in mind these are mattes and mattes tend to be temperamental and usually require a primer. Mattes and I do NOT get along. LOL

to be honest.. it isn't bad without a primer ;)

I JUST got the Naked + Naked 2 palette (yeah, I' officially the last person ever to get it), but I really do want to get this to go along with it. I think it was a great idea on Urban Decay's part. And I love the swatches! :)

The packaging is kept to a minimum. It's sleek and so easy to travel with. There is no unnecessary bulky packaging and it really looks "pro". I'm not sure why it's not talked about as much as some of the other ones, but I am in love with it. The Naked basics just doesn't seem that great especially if you own both Naked and Naked II palettes.

Ooh, Parisnicole, you've given me something to think about.  I have a gift card for Sephora and I'd been thinking that I'd get the Naked2 palette.  But I just looked up the Lorac Pro Palette, and it looks great...and even more colors!  I think this merits a trip to Sephora to compare the two and try to decide which one to buy!!  Thank you for the suggestion!

What seems great about that palette is that it has both matte and shimmer shadows in a full range of colors.  I would have gotten it instead of Naked if I had known about it.  It seems to be a fantastic, complete palette.

just posted up the review on my blog! lighting is so off.. but whatever :P

post #85 of 153

My sentiments exactly.

post #86 of 153
It's an absolutely amazing palette! I don't even want to buy any other ones or use the old ones I have. Some people complain about the mattes having fall out, IMO that's just the nature of mattes in general. I love the palette soooooo much!!!

pretty! What is your foundation color? I might get this since I don't have the other Naked palettes, but I'm afraid the lighter colors won't look that different on me (I'm NC15).
