Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics - an absolute winner.

I picked up this little palette a couple of weeks ago at the airport. I have been having so much fun with it - I usually never bother with palettes because I usually end up using only one or two shades and I would rather buy them as larger singles.

But these are SERIOUSLY lovely to use together. I am in my mid fifties, with a coolish skin tone, and these are completely matte and neutral which is perfect for me as I don't suit or want anything shimmery. Every single shade looks fantastic, the coverage is amazing, they blend into each other beautifully and they last until I take them off. I have hooded eyes which normally causes a problem with eyeshadow, but these do not move once applied.

The colours are the closest I have ever got to better-than-natural. I have been using them during the day - I haven't had an evening opportunity yet, but they would easily be dramatic enough for evening wear. I have been trying different combinations from extremely subtle to more striking and everything just looks great.

Thoroughly recommended!

Yes, it's lovely, isn't it. Another one I love is PUR mattes from M&S.

I have the naked 2 pallet & can honestly say that it's the first one where have used every single colour, granted some more than others so may buy the basic one next as a top up.
I also have the naked "on the run" set. So handy for taking away.

I've got it and it's amazing. Even using one colour gives great effect. I used Pinterest to master the full look.
