Today I'm reviewing the Urban Decay NAKED basics palette and the UD NAKED nailpolish set for you :)
Urban Decay NAKED Basics:
Urban Decay's first mini palette that includes almost only matte colors. It's a cute little palette that includes 5 matte colors and one semi-matte shimmery (Venus). I actually didn't want to buy it since I have a lot of eyeshadow palettes and I thought it is pretty similar to my Naked 2 palette. But when I got the chance to swatch and play with it, I couldn't resist not buying it. I HAD to buy it! xP It's perfect for travelling, nice sized mirror and with the neutral shades you won't need any other palette. I love the size of it, easy to clean and handy, plus fits in every bag. There are 4 new colors in this palette, Foxy is already in the Naked 2 palette and 1 (WOS) is available as single eyeshadow.
|INDOORS WITH LIGHT|
|INDOORS WITHOUT LIGHT|
Foxy: yellow-toned beige
W.O.S (Walk of shame): pink-toned beige
Naked 2: taupe with grey and yellow undertones
Faint: warm-dusty brown
Crave: really dark brown-black color (lighter than blackout)
Formula/pigmentation? Since they are matte, they are more powdery but still high pigmented and easy to blend ;)
Final thoughts: I think I don't have to tell you anymore how much I LOVE the Urban Decay palettes! If you love the other 2 Naked palettes you will easily fall in love with this one too. I am more than impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows in this palette, good quality eyeshadows for a reasonable price. Perfect for travel and the On-the-go touchup
Urban Decay NAKED nailpolish set:
Urban Decay realised, end 2012 - beginning this year, this new nailpolish set of 6 minis inspired by their NAKED (first) eyeshadow palette. In my opinion, this range of colors is pretty amazing, it goes from a very light nude color to a sparkly dark color and I think it includes colors that could look good on everybody with every skintone. So there are in fact 3 light colors and 3 dark colors. They have different finishes but for each you need two coats to get full coverage.
Price: 26$ - 22€
This irresistible nail polish kit features six of this season’s most sought-after shades in Urban Decay’s signature NAKED style. Featuring an inspired range of glitters, metallics, creams, and shimmers, each gorgeous hue proves that once again, neutral is anything but boring.
Warm opaque beige nude with a pinky-brown (depending on the light) touch -2 coats - Milky finish!
Transparent pinked nude color with silver and pink shimmer - more of a topcoat in my opinion - 2-3 coats to full coverage, 1 as topper - bumpy finish because of the glitter!
Frosty-shimmery pink color with little sparkles - 2 coats - glossy finish!
Warm copper color with gold shift - 1 coat could be already enough - metallic finish!
Deep eggplant color with micro sparkles - 2 coats - metallic finish!
Black with little silver glitter - 2 coats - normal finish
Final thoughts: My favorites are Naked, Smog & Hustle :) My least favorite is sidecar cuz I have a bunch of colors that look like this.
I love the little nailpolish sets by Urban Decay, this would be my 3rd set.
What I don't like about the set is the box itself cuz I'm having a hard time to get them out of it, for each of them! I have to use tweezers for help to get them out -.-
But they didn't disappoint me with this set!!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE URBAN DECAY NAILPOLISH SETS? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ONE, OR WHICH COLOR DO YOU LIKE THE MOST FROM THIS SET???
Weekend & Eastern are almost there, have a good one ;)
