Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette
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.

- "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 use this palette almost everyday. It's so easy to use and small enough to put it in your makeup bag. The colors are highly pigmented and soft. 10/10 would recommend. " in 1304 reviews
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$.
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? 🤷♀️ 🎨
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!
