One long weekend and I feel like I haven’t written in forever. I hope to find you all well. Today, I want to talk about the Naked 2 Basics Palette that I won from You Saucy Minx!
I was pretty excited to win this. I had already decided that if I didn’t win, I would go to the store and pick one up, so getting it free is just a bonus.
Colors: Some have said the range of colors isn’t as broad as the original Basics palette, which is true. The lighter colors are soft but not close to white, the darker colors couldn’t be mistaken for black. You can still create a whole look with the colors given and as a person who owns a million and one light shimmery eyeshadows, they weren’t missed in this palette.
Finish: With the exclusion of the lightest color, these all have a beautiful matte finish
Application: A dream! Nicely pigmented and easy to blend. What more could you ask for?
My Look: This palette is beautiful for every day, natural no makeup looks, but I wanted to do something a teensy bit different. I used the middle and darker shadows for a smokier look.
So what do you think? Will you be giving this look a try? Have you tried any other Naked Palettes? Let me know in the comments below!
