I seriously didnt think Urban Decay could top its Naked 1& 2 palette!! ive been wanting a palette like this i love shimmery colors but most days i just want a natural barely there look. and the naked basics has EVERYTHING i need to achieve that look.. i can do natural, i can do minimal, i can do a smokey eye. i mean i have been using this palette everyday since i got it in the mail in decemberish? idr. but I LOVE IT!!! Urban decay is my number one favorite brand. I cant wait to see whatelse they can come up with!!! the palette case is very nice and small easy to take with for traveling. its got a mirror in it. the eyeshadows have great pigmentation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MakeupByAntonia Like, But Not Love
I own both the Naked 1 and 2 palette, and I wanted matte shadows from Urban Decay without having to shell out the $18 for them individually. I went ahead and bought the Naked Basics palette online. I was not dissapointed with the quality and value of the product (I mean come on, 6 almost full size shadows for not even $30. You can't beat that!) My only dislike is that most of the colors (4 out of 6) were really light sheer colors. I would have liked to see more warm tones browns like Crave. This product did not fail me in any other way, the pigmentation of the shadows was steller just as you would inspect from any Urban Decay product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyce3101 Fantastic balanced colours and super for the "older" eye!
After buying Naked 1 & 2, it almost seemed ridiculous to order the small Naked Basics, but....... Basics can be taken everywhere in your purse, travelling etc. And the colours can create any look, tuned up or down. I am not a person that uses big amounts of make up every day, but this small palette is my sweetheart! My age: 43, my eyelids: slightly wrinkled, so matte colours are better, much better than shimmers. Naked 1 & 2 are in my teenage daughters make up kit, basics is in mine. Great feature: it even looks good after several hours without the use of primer! Thank you UD, can I wish for something similar in grey tones?

Rated 5 out of 5 by brittleah New favorite palette!
I'm not going to lie at first when I heard about this palette I really wasn't that interested in it at all. I already have both naked palette and didn't think this one was at all that special. But I was so wrong! I received this as a birthday gift and decided to try it out. I created my new favorite look using all 6 of the shadows and I'm totally in love with it now. I created the perfect neutral smoky eye and this makes me very pleased with this product. I also love how this product is smaller than the other naked palette which makes it easier to fit in my makeup bag and doesn't take up much room at all. Urban Decay is still never failing to impress me :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by butrflii One of the Best
I purchased both Naked 1 & 2 and have become quite a fan of both palettes. I was elated to see a neutral palette like Naked Basics. I love that you can take this palette with you to work, school or travel and because it's filled with neutral colors you always have the right color for any occasion.
The quality of UD's eyeshadows rivals the best. The pigments appear on your skin as they appear in the palette, each color is true to what you see and the texture provides for a silky and consistent application. These two reasons alone are why I am such an UD addict. I have even gotten my mother and friends addicted to this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gr8Nse Nice for older, hooded and crepey eyelids
I am 50 + yrs old and have not worn alot of eye shadows because every time I do, my eyes look much worse. They are hooded, crepey (and the shadows usually enhance that). Needless to say, most of the shadows that I own have sparkle in them. So, I ordered the Naked Basics Pallete and it came this evening. I tried on a few colors. Whoa yes! My eyes look great! The shadows go on smoothly, no sparkles or flyoff. This is a keeper! And now I can toss all the old shadows. These are really the only colors that I wear, but I would like to see a nice matte lavender or grey in the future. Urban Decay, you rock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mistakentrees The palette I've been looking for!
I've been a fan of Urban Decay's eyeshadows for quite some time. The texture, pigmentation, and overall quality are always so perfect. The only problem is I'm very rarely in the mood to wear bright and/or glittery shadows. So as soon as I could, I picked up this palette. It's everything I wanted it to be. The colors are subtle and gorgeous. Previous reviews have stated that this palette is "boring." I think it's the exact opposite. Obviously, if you like brighter colors, this may not be the ideal palette for you. But if you're like me and prefer a more natural eye, then this is absolute perfection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emily1231 Every makeup collection needs some Basics
Finally a matte palette! I don't usually gravitate towards matte shades, but I recognize that to pull off certain looks I needed to add some. This palette was so worth it. I've read some comments about it being it being boring, but people need to understand what ud is doing here. This isn't Vice or Book of Shadows. There aren't bright bold glittery colors. It's definitely a departure from their usual palette. But they did what we asked them to do: matte shades in a portable sleek palette. They delivered. I'm so glad I got it because I can create a couple office-appropriate looks with it or use with other palette for more fun. Loving the three darker shades. Smooth and velvety, not at all chalky.
