New to the Urban Decay Naked family is Naked Basics, a mostly-matte palette comprising 6 neutral eyeshadows.
The nude hues and softly-matte texture are great for effortless contouring and your-eye-but-better looks. Not only can you create ‘the perfect neutral matte eye’ with this palette, you can build upon and blend the versatile colours for stronger and smokier looks too. Moreover, the browns and beiges make good brow/brow gradation colours.
In the palette are 6 x 1.3 g eyeshadows in:
Venus – A cool ivory. The brand describes it as a ‘soft, off-white demi-matte’ but it carries shimmer and has a clear sheen.
Foxy – A matte pale yellow ivory.
W.O.S/Walk of Shame – A matte pale pink nude.
Naked 2 – A matte taupe with a rosy grey overtone.
Faint – A matte café au lait, a dusty warm brown.
Crave – A matte black that’s half a shade lighter than Blackout, the black in the original Naked palette. It also seems to carry a hint of deep brown.
Of the 6, Venus, Naked 2, Faint and Crave are new shades exclusive to this palette.
As you can tell from the swatches, Foxy and W.O.S disappear on my skin; they’re ‘no-colour colours’, so to speak. Ironic, given their conspicuous namesakes! ;) They’re ideal for evening out my skintone and work well on the under-eye area too.
A sleek rubberised compact (more suede-like than Nars packaging) with a metallic embossed name, this slim palette fits easily in the palm of my hand and looks almost travel-sized (the shadow pans are full-sized, though).
In Singapore, it retails at S$42 and is available at Sephora stores island-wide.
As a treat for our readers, Sephora will offer a complimentary goody bag to the first 60 readers who purchase Naked 1, Naked 2 or Naked Basics.
This gift-with-purchase UD TSA bag will contain a deluxe-sized Urban Decay Supercurl Mascara, a travel-sized Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, a smart sample of Urban Decay Naked Skin and a smart sample of Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
Simply store the photo above in your phone (or other mobile devices) and flash the image when you make payment.
Customers who purchase any of the 3 palettes will also receive an express Naked eye makeover and free instant photo print-outs. In addition, the first 150 customers to purchase S$120 and above of Urban Decay products will receive a free gift from the brand.
I hope to see you there! :)
