Urban Decay's Naked2 Basics

Urban Decay Naked2 Basics $29
Urban Decay has released a new palette! Just over a month ago they announced Naked2 Basics and everyone went stir crazy. I was super excited to get my hands on this palette! The original has been my go to for my everyday make-up for a long time now.

The packaging has stayed the same with the exception of the lighter lettering. Both have a good size mirror and both are small enough to take with you on the go. Many people may say that the new palette is practically identical to the original, but I beg to differ! While they are similar, they are very different.

Naked2 Basics is much cooler and on the taupe side. Five of the shades are matte and one is more of a satin. While they can be a little powdery, they all blend beautifully. I also like that you don't only have to use these as shadows. The colors can work great as brow powders (which is what I used Faint for, from the original, for a long time), you can use them as liners and you can even use the lightest shade as a highlight. Being so versatile makes it great to travel with!

Another thing I have noticed is that I have a lot of palettes that do not have the blending colors I need or the highlights and the Naked Basics palettes are the perfect companions to those. They give you those staple colors that you need, that you may not have. 

I recommend this to those who don't already have staples in their collection or to those who are just Urban Decay junkies like me.
