I'm thinking of buying Urban Decay Naked Basics palette and was wondering if anyone has used this. I don't really like shimmering eyeshadows, especially for daytime, so I thought this might be ok. Any opinions?
I have this and I love it. I use it nearly every single day. The colours are all matte apart from one which can be used to add a bit of shimmer or as a highlighter on the inner eye or browbone. I love make-up palettes and if I could choose only one it would have to be this one. Every single colour can actually be used unlike most palettes for me where there are always several colours that I'm never going to touch. It can be built up to a smokey look, but I love it because it's so easy to just do a light natural look. Quality is excellent. Very buttery and smooth in texture.
I bought this for my dd for her Christmas stocking, she loves it and spends ages doing her eyes. She has huge brown eyes and knows how to make the most of them. The colours are fab, not shimmery or glittery at all. I tend to just use eye pencil and mascara as I have never got in to the habit of using eye shadows, may be I should start
I have naked, naked2 and recently bought naked3 - so I guess that counts as a recommendation! Good depth of colour, staying power and a little goes a long way. Blend well, so lots of different looks from natural daytime to smoky eyes for evening. Lots of tutorials available on-line to show you how to achieve different looks.
I bought it recently, as I really don't suit shimmery. However they still didn't suit me - I've come to the conclusion eyeshadow just doesn't suit me. Have tried loads and been made up at the counters. Also I was allergic to it and ended up giving it to a friend a couple of weeks ago. I did like the colours though.
