Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette Images and Information

Urban Decay has launched their newest palette called Naked Basics.  This is a long awaited, much needed and multi-purpose matte shadow companion to the two Naked palettes.  This is truly a palette that every woman can use.  For women that are fans of neutral eye makeup (Like me) to women that are bright eyeshadow color fanatics who are looking for base shades or highlighting shades to pair with their bolder shadows.   Urban Decay's neutral matte shades are very wearable and will look great on literally everyone!  They have mastered the art of making matte shadows ultra smooth, pigmented and soft.  Their matte shadows are never chalky or powdery. 

Urban Decay's best selling palette of Naked and Naked2 are proof that neutral is anything BUT boring.  They are also proof that a company well known for fantastic bright and colorful eyeshadows, knows how important it is to have great neutrals to compliment those over the top colors.  Let's face it, if a neutral loving girl, like myself is drooling over an Urban Decay palette then they must be doing something right! 

You really can do a lot with these colors. You can use the shadows to contour and define your eyes and then add a bright pop of color!  You can take it from office to After Hours with an addition of a colorful shade or using the darker colors of the palette to smoke out your daytime look. 

According to Urban Decay, the chic soft-touch case has a slight sheen and it feels like suede. This palette is small and compact so it will travel well, no matter where you go!  Honestly, this palette looks like it should be in your purse at all times.  (I'm just sayin'). 
Urban Decay Naked Basics includes four new and exclusive eyeshadow colors, one color only available in a previous palette (Foxy from Naked2) and one all-time staff favorite (Walk of Shame from the Permanent Collection of Singles).   Each Eyeshadow features Urban Decay's brand new Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

The shades are:
Venus  – soft, off-white demi-matte (Perfect for highlight and adding dimension)
Foxy – very light yellow/beige matte
Walk of Shame – very light pinky nude matte
Naked2 – rosy taupe matte (TAUPE!!!)
Faint – warm, dusty brown matte
Crave – deepest, darkest brown/black matte

The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette will retail for $27 and is currently only available at, but will soon be available from Sephora, ULTA and select Macy’s stores. Or, online at,,, and

Does this new palette strike your fancy?  Are you craving "Crave" eyeshadow?  Does the sight of "Faint" eyeshadow make you faint? I could go on with the cheeky questions, but why not tell me what you think?


  1. I like the idea that the packaging is not boxy. Its compact and fits in the palm of your hand! I was a bit "meh" twards it when I saw it the first time, but now I'm thinking I might go for it, considering most of my " neutrals" are a bit on the shiny side, its nice to have a set of mattes all together in one. I'm a bit weirded out over the fact that L'oreal bought them, but hopefully Urban Dacay's values will remain the same!

  2. I will be getting my hands on this palette! gorgeous!

  3. I'm a total matte-aholic, and I only have Walk of Shame, and I'm still not feeling this palette. I don't know why, I love UD and have sixty billion UD products. I'll definitely mess around with it anyway when it hits Sephora and I go in to play (there's a freestanding Sephora four minutes from my house now, yay)

  4. I never went for either Naked palette because for whatever reason, I just wasn't excited about them (even though I'm a neutral makeup gal most of the time). This one, however, I will definitely be getting. I think it's because I will use every shade, and I love me a good matte. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

  5. This palette is so Foxy, I would fly to Venus just to get it! But then I'll have to do the Walk of Shame out of Sephora with yet another product I don't need, but want so bad.

  6. I wont be reaching for this.. Not enough variety. I have all those colors in the smoked palette.

  7. Yes, yes, and YES!!!! I am new to Urban Decay and have long been disappointed by other brands' mattes. Is is amazing to me that this brand, known for super shimmer and BOLD color has such incredibly smooth, blendable and creamy matte shades. I love WOS (I have 2 singles) and have Foxy (via the Naked 2 Palette). The push I needed was that I could get Venus, Naked2 and Faint for less than 2 of them as singles (when they come out!). My order, including a Mystery Bag will hopefully arrive the beginning of the week!

  8. I can't quite decide whether or not I want this. I have both Naked palettes, as well as the Smoked palette. I love me some neutrals; however, I thought I'd want it, but then went with something else when I ordered from Sephora this week. Perhaps I just need to see it in person.

  9. Does anyone know when this will be available in Canada or on
