{Review} Urban Decay : Naked Basics Palette

80_picture-15Along with every other South African beauty lovers,I so badly wanted to try anything from Urban Decay. A few weeks ago the beautiful Tasha from Belleza Kisses (Read her blog, you’ll love it!) sent me some fab goodies.

Now I’m no beauty guru but I at least know how to apply eyeshadow and make my eyes look pretty. I do however have to stick to the safe colours to prevent me from looking like a clown. That’s where my new fave Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette comes in. I love how compact it is. The perfect size to just pop into my handbag with a great size mirror for those quick touch ups on the go.
The staying power of the eyeshadows are AMAZING! They blend perfectly and are very pigmented. I particularly love how the product transfers from the brush to my eyelids but still look exactly the same. With most eye-shadows it appears extremely pigmented in the pan but when on your eyelids they look transparent.

I’ve read some great Urban Decay reviews on Tasha’s blog and I want them all. The lip liners looks fab. Read Tasha’s review over here. Take a look at my absolute lust have list.
Urban Decay products are an absolute must have in your makeup bag and collection. Make a new buddy in the U.S and tell them to get it for you! Next on my list is the Naked 2 palette and/or a stunning lipstick. What’s your thoughts on Urban Decay?

  1. I would love to try the Urban Decay products, I really wish that South Africa had most of the products available in the US but I can tell we are slowly but surely catching up:) who knows in the next year or so… Did you pay for the palette? How much was it?
    Would you mind checking my blog:

    Would mean a lot as I am a newbie… Hugs

  2. The color payoff of Tease is really disappointing; it’s dry, stiff, and applies unevenly. It takes a lot of packing and blending to make it work, which is a real shame given that mattes in Urban Decay palettes can be hard to come by! Foxy is also on the sheerer side but not terribly so, but it has some powderiness to it. Chopper has that micro-glitter texture Urban Decay loves but is prone to fall out.
