|L-R venus, foxy, walk of shame, naked 2, faint, crave|
I know I'm a bit late to jump on the bandwagon with this one but when everyone was raving about it earlier on it the year, it just wasn't something I was interested in. A few months down the line and this was on the top of my lust list! There is a lot more hype surrounding the Naked 1 & 2 palettes, but for someone who isn't all that fond of using eyeshadows, I thought this would be a better option.
The Naked Basics Palette comes with 6 shades - 5 matte and 1 shimmer. All of them are pretty pigmented, although I do find Foxy has probably the least pigmentation out of all of them, as you may be able to see in the swatches above. All the shades are neutral and so wearable, which I really like as I know I will get so much use out of this palette! The shadows are so buttery and easy to blend, and actually very versatile. Venus & Foxy are both amazing inner corner/brow highlights, W.O.S is a perfect all over the lid colour, Naked 2 is good at a soft defined crease (or something??) along with Faint if you want to smoke it up a little, and Crave is the perfect liner!
The price of this palette, in my opinion, is very reasonable. I really wanted some MAC shadows but I'm so glad I got this palette and saved myself a couple of pennies (although satin taupe is still on my list)! I don't have many eye brushes so I definitely want to invest in some, I know the MAC 217 brush is a holy grail blending brush but I don't think I'll be splashin da cash on that just yet - so if you have any alternatives / dupes, please let me know!!
I haven't had time to put a proper look together using all the shades and take photos, but I'm thinking of doing a separate post showing some looks, maybe 'Three Looks w/ One Palette' or something, what do you think?
Hope you're having a good start to the week, surprisingly mine hasn't been too bad although I have history first period tomorrow so it could all change!
Oooh I also have a new Instagram, @oliviaroses_ so I'd love it if you could give that a follow!
