Urban Decay Naked Basics 1 vs. Naked Basics 2

11/25/2014



We've discussed everything about the 'naked' family of eye shadows from Urban Decay so far. You have the original Naked palette (reviewed here), Naked 2 palette (reviewed here), Naked palette 3 (reviewed here), Naked Basics (reviewed here) and Naked Basics 2 (reviewed here). This year has definitely been the year of these palettes as far as my make-up collection goes. If all those reviews weren't enough so you can make up your mind about which Basics palette to get - I wanted to make that decision as easy as possible with this comparative post and if you want me, I can make something similar with the Naked, Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes. So, here we go - Urban Decay Naked Basics 1 vs. Naked Basics 2. These two are very similar - their size is exactly the same and their casings look the same (apart from the name, obviously, and the coloring of the font). They slightly differ regarding the cardboard boxes they come in (Basics 2 is ornated more like the Naked 2 and Naked 3 palette). The matte finish, fab pigmentation, low fallout, amazing longevity and softness to the touch are consistent throughout both palettes. They're both of the same quality. But, what you all want to know is how the shades compare, right? The word's out how the Naked Basics 2 is more cool toned and the Naked Basics 1 is warmer in undertone. Well, it may appear to be the case at first glance but I've noticed while making swatches that both palettes contain pinky/peach hues. 

Pricale smo o svemu sto smo mogle spomenuti o poznatim nejkedicama, meni najdrazim paletama sjena koje dolaze iz Urban Decay brenda. Imate originalnu Naked paletu (recenzirana ovdje), Naked 2 paletu (recenzirana ovdje), Naked 3 paletu (recenzirana ovdje), Naked Basics paletu (recenzirana ovdje) ali i Naked Basics 2 paletu (recenzirana ovdje). Ova godina je u svakom pogledu bila godina ovih sjena kada je moja make-up kolekcija u pitanju. Ukoliko vam recenzije nisu bile dovoljne da pomognu oko odlucivanja koja je Basics paleta bas za vas - pokusati cu olaksati tu odluku komparativnim postom a, ako zelite, mogu napraviti nesto slicno za velike palete (Naked, Naked 2 i Naked 3). Zato, idemo - Urban Decay Naked Basics 1 ili. Naked Basics 2? Ove dvije paletice su jako slicne - identicnih su dimenzija i pakovanje im je jako slicno (sa razlikom u nazivu i boji slova kojim je ispisan). Koliko je bitno ne znam, ali spomenuti cu da su i kartonske kutijice razlicite sa time sto je kutija Basics 2 ljepse oslikana (u maniru npr.Naked 2 i naked 3 paleta) dok je prva Basics potpuno obicne kutije (bez ilustracija). Mat finish, izvrsna pigmentacija, minimalno rasipanje, odlicna trajnost i mekoca te svilenkasta tekstura na dodir krase obje palete i niti jedna nije 'kvalitetnija' u odnosu na drugu. No, ono sto nas zaista zanima jeste kako su im nijanse sjena usporedive? Ono o cemu se prica jeste da je Naked Basics 2 hladnijeg a Naked Basics 1 toplijeg podtona. To zaista tako i izgleda na prvi pogled no primjetila sam dok sam ih swatchala da ustvari obje sadrze i ruzicaste/breskvaste nijanse.


Naked Basics 2 perhaps is tad darker (medium dark) in shade department whilst the Naked Basics 1 is lighter in overall tone so that may be the reason why Basics 2 seems to have more cooler shades - they're more apparent as they're darker. You can always judge yourself by looking at the photos. Personally, I think that the real difference lies in gradation of shades these palettes have. Basics 1 has a really light shade at one and a pitch black shade at the other end. Shades in between are similar to each other and the two extremes are obvious. Basics 2 has more of a lighter gradient in the way that there's not a shade too far apart from the next one in terms of darkness. They are very harmonious together which I personally think is awesome but the negative is - you don't have a really black or a really creamy white highlight shade. I'm sometimes under impression that these two are made to compliment each other - when you own both you have the perfect, complete palette of matte neutrals. If you own one, than you'll always think how you're missing out. It's probably a very smart marketing more and I do salute them for that as it's clever but that means people will want to spend more money to get 'em all - just like I did. It's up to you if you'll fall for their charms in entirety, partially or at all. I do have to admit that they were the best make-up purchase of the year for me. And my fave? Well, if I had to choose, than I'd pick Naked Basics 2 as it compliments my skin tone better. 

Naked Basics 2 je nesto tamnijih nijansi (srednje tamnih) dok je Naked Basics 1 palet nesto svjetlijih tonova - to bi mogao biti razlog zbog cega su hladni tonovi izrazajniji na prvi pogled kod dvice (jer su tamniji a time i uocljiviji). Naravno, uvijek mozete i same izvuci svoje zakljucke sa usporednih fotografija. Licno, mislim da je prava razlika izmedju ove dvije palete u gradaciji nijansi. Basics 1 na jednom kraju ima izrazito svjetlu sjenu dok na drugom ima potpuno crnu. Nijanse izmedju njih su slicne jedna drugoj i stoga su ekstremi uocljiviji. Basics 2 ipak ima nesto blazi gradijent izmedju nijansi, nema drasticnih razlika izmedju njih i prelazi su meksi. Ovo je jako harmonicna paleta sto licno smatram prednoscu ali to nosi i manu - nemate izrazito svijetlu niti izrazito crnu sjenu. Nekada sam pod dojmom kao da su ove palete stvorene da nadopunjuju jedna drugu. Kada imate obje paletice, one komplimentiraju jedna drugoj i posjedujete savrsenu, kompletnu paletu mat neutralnih nijansi - od najsvjetlije do najtamnije. Ako imate samo jednu, postoji sansa da cete misliti cesto na drugu. Ovdje se vjerovatno radi o odlicnom marketinskom triku i stvarno im skidam kapu jer je pametno izveden. Ljudi ce jednostavno zeljeti nabaviti sve, bas kao sto sam ja ucinila. Na vama je da li cete pasti na to u potpunosti, djelimicno ili uopste. Ja moram priznati da su ovo bile najbolje stvari koje sam kupila ove godine i nemam niti jednu primjedbu, niti sam pozalila na sekund. A koja mi je omiljena? Pa, ako bih bas morala birati mislim da bih odabrala Naked Basics 2 posto mi za mrvicu bolje odgovara tenu.
