Naked Basics 2


I couldn't believe my luck when I spotted the Naked Basics 2 Palette on Cohorted! Without even thinking about it I immediately joined the cohort and snapped up this little beauty for the bargain price of £15.40! As I don't own many matte eye shadows I often shy away from eye shadow during the day or for work and uni, but these colours are so natural and soft that I think I could easily create amazing every day looks with this!

You can see from the swatches that these are mega pigmented, which is what I would expect from Urban Decay. I don't own any of the Naked Palettes, but I have a couple of other UD palettes and the eye shadows are just the best quality eye shadow products I have ever used. They are so finely milled, and buttery...I just love them! I've been really experimenting with these for every day wear and have had so many comments on my eye make up and even had a girl at an event in my work ask me if I was trained in make up. I am definitely not. But it just shows how the right products can make things that little bit easier for an amateur like myself. My favourite shades have definitely been Frisk and Cover.

Another point to add is that the packaging is unbelievably travel friendly. It comes in a robust plastic case and doesn't bother with lousy extras that take up space like poor quality eye shadow sponges or brushes. It also comes with a hugeeee mirror, and for someone like myself who is always darting about everywhere, and always has a jam packed schedule this is just perfect! I'm not sure how confident I would be applying eye shadow on the train, but I will most likely be giving it a go in the near future, if only for a few extra minutes in bed. 

Thank you to Cohorted for being the most fabulous place to grab a bargain once again! 

Do any of you own this palette? What do you think of it?
