Naked Ultimate Basics Palette - Review


As a huge, HUGE lover of Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes it only seemed right that the new ultimate basics featured on my blog. This palette is any matte gals dream and damn right too, there is nothing I love more then a good matte smokey eye and even more so warm neutral tones! Ever since it was first released I lusted in hope that one day It would be in my hands and soon enough it was, yay.  I absolutely adore the packaging of this one to another level, the huge square mirror means that it is the perfect travel companion. Along with the shade range which I have to say has been chosen perfectly, there are plenty to go at but also to create many looks. Who would have thought with it just being neutrals? After obtaining most of the other Naked palettes now, this one still seems to stand out and shine brighter then the rest, maybe it's just because of the cover, who knows! 

I haven't had a problem with any of the shades, they all apply the same which I can sometimes find with other palettes that I have tried some are more pigmented then others. They are all so easy to blend which makes it my perfect everyday choice as it is easy to create a look so if you are someone who is short for time I'd say that this would be great for you. The set does come with a brush but like all of the other urban decay ones I tend to just use the ones I already have as I have set brushes for different sections of the eye. The shadows last all day without creasing, well on my eyes anyway I haven't had problems. I know it is only matte's but to me this palette just seems so different to any other out there which has given it pride and place in my makeup collection. 

This palette is the perfect blend of all the Naked palettes with the shade range and of course it is still similar with the colours but they are all brand new and unique to this set. I have listed the names and the colours down below for you to get more of an insight of the range but I am sure by now you will be familiar as it has been all over social media since the release.
