I was pretty excited when Urban Decay launched a new Naked Basics palette because all of the Naked palettes are my favorite eyeshadows. Like I could seriously get rid of all my eyeahdaows/palettes and just keep the UD naked ones and be perfectly happy (not really).
I love the original Naked Basics palette and it was an everyday staple in my makeup routine for quite some time!
I was super happy to come home one day from work and find this sitting on my kitchen counter, thanks to my amazing husband!
5 of these eyeshadow are matte, and the very first one is very slightly shimmer (just like the first palette).
And here is a side by side comparison of the two palettes. Skimp and wos are very similar, and so are frisk and naked2 which you can tell is a well loved color for me.
You can see the Naked 2 Basics had more cool, taupe, and dark tones colors.
My overall thoughts-
-I am really loving this palette. UD always does such a great job with their naked palettes, I can't pass them up. If you have the first one, I don't really think it's necessary to own them both, but if you love the naked palettes then I don't think you would regret purchasing this either!
-I love the color selection in this palette, and a lot of these colors are great for the crease, blending, and transition colors.
-I do wish there was a lighter highlight color in the palette like the first one.
-I love the darkest color Undone, I think it's super unique and I don't own one like it.
-I do think there is more fallout from these shadows than the first one and they are a bit more powdery, but that is my only complaint about it.
-At first I debated on getting it or not because in pictures they looked almost identical, but after watching some YouTube videos on it you can see they are different. I'm such a sucker for neutral palettes so I knew I was use this a lot regardless if it's similar to the first one!
Have you picked up this palette yet? If so, leave your thoughts on it in the comments!
