Product Description

Our first MATTE palette, featuring six gorgeously Naked neutrals to build on or wear alone—including four never-before-seen shades. Naked Basics is more than just the long-awaited, multipurpose MATTE companion to Naked. It's the palette EVERY woman needs in her beauty arsenal. With six stripped-down, Nakedly neutral shadows, it has everything you need for the perfect neutral matte eye—including four totally new and exclusive shades.

Use these shadows to contour, line and highlight to create the right amount of definition for any occasion. Or for the days when you're craving more color, pair them with your fiercest, boldest shadows. Richer than other mattes, the color goes on with a smooth, luxe finish (never chalky or powdery). There's even one demi-matte shade, Venus, which has the tiniest touch of satin—perfect for highlighting and adding dimension.

While this palette is small, we loaded it with full-size shadow pans, just like our other Naked palettes. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane color payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.

It all comes in a sleek compact (embossed with a pretty, metallic 'NAKED' on the front) that has a slight sheen and a suede-like feel that practically begs to be touched. (Hello…how gorgeous will THAT look coming out of your bag?!) Best of all, the slim design is perfect for travel—so you’ll never have to be without these must-have shades.

What you see is what you get: Venus (soft, off-white demi-matte), Foxy (cream bisque matte), Walk of Shame (very light nude matte), Naked2 (taupe matte), Faint (warm, dusty brown matte) and Crave (deepest, darkest brown/black matte).

  • "This is a fantastic palette that is versatile enough to transition from a day look to a smokey nighttime look. It contains 6 matte neutral colors that all work well together. The shadows themselves are silky and blend well. This palette is great to travel with since it's small but contains everything you need!" in 1338 reviews

I have Naked Basics 1 and 2 and they’re both really great palettes.
I reach for 1 a little bit more because the black shade can be used as a liner in a pinch.
The shades are all mattes (in both palettes) except for a slight shimmer in one shade. The formula is nice,if a little bit dry,with minimal fallout and it is so travel-friendly.
You can absolutely do beautiful,understated looks with this palette or go all out and do a full eye. You will need a brush,there is no brush included,but there is a mirror in the palette.
I personally am very low key with my eye makeup and Id only use one shade at a time as a wash of color across my lid.
I haven’t reached for this palette in a while-not because it’s not a great little workhorse,it is-I’ve just been into other products but I would absolutely recommend this palette,it’s versatile and the quality is nice.
I got mine at Sephora and it was 29$.

It's amazing, it's fab, it does the job perfectly

The palette features a solid range of matte shadows that are all virtually blendable with each other and gentle on the skin. You can either mix mattes with shimmers from other palettes (Naked and Naked 2 for me). In short, the creative possibilities with this one are endless.

Everything about this palette just screams of good quality. Be careful because a little goes a long way!

It's the perfect product for creating simple yet striking every day looks, as well as mixing it up a little with evening or party and event looks. I'm considering picking up another palette because what girl couldn’t use another palette right? 🤷‍♀️ 🎨

After purchasing this from ulta, I am in love! I feel like I didn’t need to buy the whole palette, these work great! The lightest shade is a great base and you have a few transition shades with a perfect matte ultra black shadow, which makes the eyes pop. I use this on my sister in law who has hooded eyes and she loved the look! The shadow has minimal fallout, stays on great and looks amazing. Definitely recommend to beauty addicts or beginners. These shades work for anyone!

This palette is pretty nice. Not my exact cup of tea,but that's my own preference. I'm not huge on the basic looks,though I will say that I do like the palette. It's really good for travelling,I can just take it and a shimmery eyeshadow and be on my way. The colors are blendable and light,but can be built up. I really love the rubber feeling of the packaging,and the convenience. I just don't like the colors for all the time,so I passed this on to my mother so it would be shown love. My mom is in her late 40's though,and wears mostly neutral eyes,and she loves this palette to death and uses it all the time.

I got this at Ulta since it’s on sale and it’s my first Naked palette ever. I love the quality of this palette and that’s it’s easy to travel with. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 starts is because I don’t think there’s that many looks that can be done with just this palette. I know it’s small but I have a few other small palettes that I can do at least 10 looks with. I also wish that the lighter colors weren’t so close in shade. Can’t really see a difference in them. With that said, This is definitely a great palette for a natural looking Smokey eye.

I absolutely love this palette. I do own all the Naked palettes and I was really interested in this Naked Basics palette. It is PERFECT for every day wear! The shadows are so buttery soft and easy to blend, it makes for such a fast and beautiful eye look on any early mornings. I love to put foxy all over my lid, and WOS & Naked 2 in my crease, and if I want to go *slightly* darker I will put Faint in my outer corner. Really looks so beautiful! add a little mascara and you have a gorgeous eye look!

The best little travel size, just the basics, multi-use palette a girl can buy! I always keep this with me because it can be used as eyeshadow, for brows, I’ve even used it to highlight and contour in a pinch. It blends beautifully and lasts forever! I’m currently on my second one, and almost ready to buy another because I use it so much! 🙌🏻🙌🏻Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette🙌🏻

This was the first eyeshadow palette I ever bought and I still use it.  I've completely hit pan on the first three shades.  They are such good transition shades and nice for an everyday eye look.  The brown shade is my go-to brown.  It's the perfect shade because it can be subtle and can build it up for a smoky eye.  I like the black okay.  It has a bit of shimmer in it so it can be a little patchy. Overall, great palette, especially for the price.

I have had this palette I bought from Ulta for quite a while and have found I use it for my everyday look.  Being close to 50, the fact that it was all matte was outstanding.  The colors lasted all day as long as I used a primer.  I don't use the black much except for eyeliner - but I found if I wet the brush first, it doesn't budge.   I would recommend this palette if you are looking for a good basics for a relatively neutral skin tone.

Although this palette looks super basic and not that exciting, if you are looking for a natural, everyday look this product is perfect for you. For $29 you are getting great color payoff and blendable colors that are found in other Urban Decay Naked palettes. 
Without splurging on one of their more expensive, full palettes, this one has great colors you can you everyday. I usually use FOXY, the yellowish color as a base and use NAKED 2 in my crease. Then, I put VENUS in my inner corner and under the brow bone and boom I am done. If I want a slightly darker look, I do the same steps except add FAINT to my outer crease and I get a brown smoky eye effect. You can even go full smoky eye with this palette, however I do not typically wear too dark of colors.

This palette is small and portable and you can easily slide it into your purse for touch ups when you are on the go. I recommend you buy it!
