Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

**know you must have seen 10000000 review posts on this Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, but I thought I would add my thoughts to the mix :)**

I was a really lucky Mummy and got this palette for Mothers Day off my two little boys. I had specifically told hinted to the fiancĂ© that I wanted this palette, he did well. Although my favourite present from the day had to be the hand made card and jam tart from my four year old, this came a close second.

Firstly I love the packaging and size of the palette. It is a bit smaller than my iPhone so fits perfectly in my everyday make-up bag.

For £20 you get 6 shadows, 5 matte and one slightly shimmery highlight shade.

The pigmentation is brilliant, I find cheaper matte shadows always lack in pigmentation and some are terrible (MUA I'm looking at you) but in this what you see in the pan is what you get on the lid, even the black.

I am using this palette every day, I even mix Faint and Naked 2 for my brow powder. My favourite combination is W.O.S all over the lid with Naked 2 and Faint blended out in the crease.

I don't own the original Naked palette, just Naked 2 so for me there aren't any repeats apart from Foxy.

Overall, I love this palette and highly recommend it. Even if you have the other Naked palettes I would still recommend it as its such a lovely palette to have in your makeup bag. I honestly cant think of any cons for this palette, even the price is very reasonable for the quality of shadows you are getting.

Do you own this palette? What do you think?
