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).

I have the Naked Basics 2 which looks incredibly similar to this. I assumed the '2' has replaced the 'original'? Either way, I have a few UD palettes and my review across all is fairly...

I can’t express how much I mourn the original naked basics. It was my first high end palette, and to this day I look back on pictures where I’m wearing it and I can’t believe how pretty and awake...

Such a great, basic, workhorse palette. This worked better for me than Naked Basics 2. The shades can be duped at MAC. I will not repurchase since its been discontinued.

I bought this when I was just getting back into eye makeup. I was looking for a cool-neutral taupe similar to KVD "Lazarus." On my eyes, "Frisk" is that color; I can use it as a socket shadow, a...

The eyeshadows are very bendable, pigmented and a bit powdery. The shade Venus is a shimmery (not glittery) white gold. The shade Foxy is like Soft Ochre from MAC, great as a base eyeshadow...
