I've become tired of red/orange pallettes! So this has become my go-to everyday palette. It's just so easy and fast to put a look together with this that is really pretty. The colors are all gorgeous! Although it's more on the cool side compared to Naked Basics, I still think this is still pretty neutral. The charcoal color on the end makes it easy to transition to night or just smoke out your daytime look. And the first 2 shades are more pale peachy-pink, which can warm up your look. These are matte shadows (except the first semi-matte shade), but they're not a "flat matte" or chalky looking. I will be repurchasing when I hit pan for sure!

I like this well enough but I was not blown away. I use the light shades regularly and the darker shades in my eyebrows, but when I put on all the shadows for a more dramatic look, it comes out looking a bit muddy and not that great. I also find the colors to be a bit chalky. For very basic daytime looks this works, but I doubt I’d buy this again.

I like this. Me: pale olive skin, MAC NC20/C1, slightly/partially hooded eyes, more so now, around 40, than when I was younger. I also have very oily lids and tend to get a bit of creasing even with primers, another thing that has increased with age, so I love mattes and rarely wear shimmers. They just transfer everywhere. I'm boring when it comes to eyeshadow. I rarely wear it at all in the daytime, maybe a light brown or taupe wash across the eyelid, not much more, and I mostly do pretty discreet, contoured matte looks with false eyelashes and a strong lip when I do put more than one colour on. I planned on getting the original Naked Basics when I bought this, but although I do like the warmer neutrals in that one, I would hardly ever use the black shadow and I don't have much use for more than one highlight shade either. The range of graduated mid-tone taupes in Naked Basics 2 is much more useful for me. The softer, off-black darkest shade is also more wearable, and I can wear cool taupes and warm greys like these, they read more as very muted browns than straight-up grey on my skintone. It's a more cool-toned neutral palette than the original, for sure, but still more neutral than truly cool colors, I would say. Good for creating more depth, shadows and dimension. I actually use every single colour in it.As for quality, I find these quite powdery, there's a good bit of kick-back when I dip brushes in them, but I don't get much fallout at all under the eyes, on the other hand. The pigmentation is very nice, without becoming too much, they blend well and don't get muddy and overblended too easily. Lasting power is good. They do crease on me eventually, even over primer, but everything does. The packaging is compact, practical and looks good. I like the generous mirror, and I really appreciate that it isn't any larger than it needs to be - so many palettes are. Would get a solid 5 lipstick rating with less dusty fallout in the palette, but I really enjoy this one and will repurchase if I ever run out.

I got this palette with the Hot Damn limited edition holiday box. I was considering buying this before I got the box. I have the Naked basics 1 palette with the warmer tones. This has cooler colours with more taupe/ grey tones whereas the Naked 1 has warmer browns and beiges, so there is a big difference between the two palettes!
There's a range of light to dark shades. The darkest shade is a lighter grey. Ideally I'd have liked a black but the grey is lovely for a softer, muted look.
In typical UD style, the shadows and buttery, blendable and nicely pigmented. The fact the palette is so small makes this one a good choice for travelling with. I usually use this one for work.

This is the first "naked" palette I purchased. I'm not very good and selecting shades that work well together. (I tend to buy the Too Faced palettes with the instruction on Looks) The Naked palettes have so many shade, the size intimidates me. So I decided the basics version is all I really need. I opted for Naked 2 due to the cool tones. I love the cool grey taupe colors. Blend very well. I do experience a little fallout, not horrible. I tend to wear this along with black eyeliner. Good for fair cool tone gals. Wears like iron over primer.

Don't like it. Darker shades show up very similar on the eyes. Plus texture is chalky and pigmentation is low-medium. A disappointment. I like the first Basics more. You get a better texture, medium - full pigmentation and colors are not similar. If you prefer a real, hardcore natural eye look, go for this. Otherwise, try it before purchasing or have a look at reviews/swatches.

Too dry and chalky for my older skin. Too much fallout even when tapping the applicator. I like the colors, but pencils are much faster for brows and liner so that eliminates two of the colors.

I'm not loving it. I love the concept of having a small palette of essential eyeshadows. I liked my Naked2 but didn't use all the shades, so Naked2 Basics seemed like a better option than purchasing Naked2 again. And I must say I don't like to use this product as much as I liked Naked2. I was wrong to order it without testing in store.Finish: This palette has 5 mattes and one satin shade (Skimp). The original Naked2 has both matte and shimmery shades which makes it versatile, so this product is not a smaller alternative to the full version, but a palette with a completely different concept. You know how hard it is to make mattes works sometimes. To me these are chalky and patchy. I feel that their quality is not as good as in other UD palettes I used (Naked2 and Vice). I also experience a lot of fallout, both in pans and on my face. I have upgraded to better tools and products since I used Naked2 but application of these eyeshadows is way more frustrating than I had with Naked2 palette.Colors: I'm NC25 (Mac) and the second shade (Stark) doesn't show up on my skin. The last 4 shadows are just similar versions of cool toned brownish gray. Basically you have one highlight (Skimp), four transition shades and a darker accent. You can make a couple looks using only this palette, but you don't have much options. I find the color range boring and uninspiring. I literally become annoyed when I use the product (but I need to use it to justify the money spent on it). I love greenish and warm shades in Naked2, and I think it would be better to have a couple of them in this palette instead of 4 gradations of the same tone. Packaging: I love it. It is sturdy and has a mirror. Perfect for touch-ups.Multi-tasking: While I don't like this palette as eyeshadows, I find it useful for other purposes. First, it can be used on eyebrows. I have dark hair and shade Undone works great on my brows. It has enough pigment and its finish is not as important as when you use it as eyeshadow. Another way to use it is to contour. While darker shades are cool toned and won't suit all skin tones, Skimp is a nice highlighter.Lasting power: I use these with UD primer and once applied they look good all day.+ Packaging+ Multi-tasking+ Lasting power- Shades are way too similar- Hard to useI won't repurchase this product. This is not a smaller version of Naked2. I wish I had bought a couple single eyeshadows which I really love.

I have used the heck out of Basics 1 over the years too and couldn't resist its yunger sister. On to the postitive remark, I love how buttery and pigmented they are in general except from Undone which could be improved. There is some powder kick when dipping the brush but no noticeable fallout and they last all day with a primer.About the packaging, although I enjoy how neat and soft it feels also gets dirty easily and tends to deteriorate overtime whin wiped with rubbing alcohol. Also the closing mechanism most probably won't survive falling on the floor. Price is fair.The thing is... the colors don't work for me and they are too close is tone and depth with each other. I don't necessarily go for dramatic looks anything I've tried with Naked Basics 2 looks incredibly dull. Sigh...

This is a great cool toned matte palette. I prefer UD's matte formula to their shimmers, which are hit and miss in my opinion. This is an all inclusive palette that has transition, crease and lid options. Great for travel. I like the first Naked Basics as well but feel this is more cohesive.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
