Urban Decay Naked Basics Eye Shadow Palette

11/21/2014



The final, fifth part of my 'naked' five-piece collection is finally here and I cannot lie - I did get a bit teary-eyed. I really enjoyed presenting all of my Urban Decay eye shadow palettes because I really think they're if not the best out there, than definitely at the top. If you're a bit attached to them, don't worry - a Basics and Basic 2 comparison is coming your way next week. This time, however, lets focus on one of the most famous matte eye shadow palettes. Yes, it indeed is the one we all welcomed and missed as the dessert miss the rain (that's a nice Everything But The Girl reference, right there). Urban Decay Naked Basics Eye Shadow Palette (£22 via feelunique.comhas one really compact casing that'll fit any bag and its contents will fit any occasion. In case you're interested in exact dimensions of the Naked Basics palette here they are; 10,50cm length, 5,50cm width and 1cm thick when closed. Just so you can map out in your brain how large (or small) it actually is. It features the same, almost rubberized, soft-touch material of the packaging and the cardboard box it comes is has a downplayed design compared to the Basics 2 palette - I promise I'll let you in on more details regarding their comparison next week, pinky swear!

Posljednji, peti dio moje 'naked' petoclane porodice je zvanicno tu i necu vas lagati - mozda su mi oci malo zasuzile. Stvarno sam uzivala u prezentiranju sve i jednog Urban Decay slatkisa (naravno, mislim na palete sjena za oci) i zaista mislim da su ako ne i najbolje, onda definitivno medju najboljim na trzistu. Ukoliko ste se vec pomalo vezale za njih poput mene i uzivate gledati ih na blogu, ne brinite - iduce sedmice vas ceka post u kojem cu usporediti Basics i Basics 2 palete. Ipak, ovog puta je fokus na pioniru ovog polja, jednoj od najpoznatijih i najpopularnijih paleta mat sjena za oci. I da, upravo se radi o onoj koju smo sve mi docekale sa velikim nestrpljenjem i nije pretjerivanje reci da nam je upravo takva paleta nedostajala u kozmetickim kolekcijama koliko pustinji nedostaje kisa (lijepa referenca na Everything But The Girl - ako ne znate o cemu je rijec, ili sam ja vec omatorila ili ste vi jako mladi - sala, sala...). Urban Decay Naked Basics paletu sjena za oci (cca 53KM preko feelunique.com stranice) krasi jedno kompaktno pakovanje koje ce stati u svaku torbu dok ce njen sadrzaj dobro doci u doslovno svakoj prilici. Ukoliko vas slucajno zanima koje su to precizne dimenzije ove palete, radi se o slijedecim; 10,50cm iznosi duzina, 5,50cm sirina i 1cm je debela (kada je zatvorena). Mislim da ova informacija moze biti korisna onima koji jos nikada nisu nabavljali prvu ni drugu mini UD paletu - cisto da ne bi bilo padanja u nesvijest ako se ocekivanje ne poklopi sa realnoscu (ali su sjene iste velicine kao u klasicnoj Naked paleti, bez brige). Sama paleta je izradjena od mekanog na dodir materijala koji je skoro pa gumiran. Takodjer je dizajn kartonske kutijice u kojoj dolazi dosta pojednostavljen u odnosu na Basics 2 paletu, sto cete imati prilike vidjeti u usporednom postu.



As for the content of the palette, you get six eye shadows out of which five are completely matte as the sixth shadow is pearly in finish and to be used as a highlight. How much you'll get use of it depends on whether you own any other UD Naked palettes and on your willingness to spend money. If you do own UD Naked and Naked 2 palettes than this might come as a repeat of most shades but if you're like me - a complete UD and eye shadow fanatic, you'll appreciate the fact you now have 2x Foxy pots (I use it daily and probably will use them both up relatively quickly). Or if you're into crease contouring a lot than you know there are never too many matte shades to have. It all depends on your needs, preferences and being able to cash out for these babies. In general, I adore every single shade from this palette but I do getmost use out of Foxy, W.O.S., Naked 2 and Faint whilst I use Venus only as a highlight and Crave if I want to line the upper lash line. The texture is fabulous - silky, smooth, even application is there, pigmentation is also fab, longevity ah-mazing (with/without a primer) and fallout is minimal. I think that you cannot go wrong with either UD palette and Naked Basics is especially reserved for neutral, matte eye look fans out there. I've created a look using the palette and have paired it with a stronger, darker lip - just so you can see how versatile these eye shadows really are. Ideal for everyday wear or paired with a stronger lip/cheek or layered with an eyeliner - it's absolutely perfect.

Sto se tice sadrzaja palete, dobijete kako sam spomenula sest full-size sjena od kojih je pet u potpunosti mat dok je jedna satin finisa i sluzi kao hajlajter (unutranji kut oka, ispod obrve). Koliko ce upravo ovako poslozene sjene bas vama biti od koristi ponajvise ovisi od toga da li vec posjedujete velike, originalne Naked i Nkaed 2 palete ali i od vase spremnosti da trosite izvjesne sume novca na ove sjene. Ako vec posjedujete Naked i Naked 2 palete, neke nijanse ce biti doslovno uduplane kao npr.Foxy sjena ali ako ste poput mene - totalni UD fanatik, cijeniti cete cinjenicu da imate 2x Foxy sjene jer licno ih koristim svaki dan i vjerujem da cu ih relativno brzo iskoristiti. Takodjer, ako jako polazete na konturisanje pregiba oka i volite u kolekciji imati vise mat nijansi u tu svrhu - takodjer ce vam ova paletica uz bilo koju vec posjedujete biti jako korisna. Sve ovisi od vasih potreba, preferenci ali i finansijskih sredstava koje zelite/mozete izdvojiti. Uopsteno, sve nijanse su mi krasne iz ove paletice i kako vec pretpostavljate - Foxy stalno koristim uz W.O.S., Naked 2 i Faint dok mi Venus konkretno sluzi kao hajlajter a Crave za isticanje linije trepavica. Tekstura ovih sjena je fantasticna - svilenkasta, glatka, ravnomjerno se nanosi, izvrsno su pigmentirane i trajne (sa i bez baze za sjene) a rasipanje je svedeno na minimum. Znate vec moje misljenje da se sa UD sjenama ne moze pogrijesiti a Naked Basics je posebno namijenjena fanovima neutralnih mat sjena. Kreirala sam look koristeci ovu paleticu i zeljela sam pokazati kako je moguce koristiti ne samo za dnevni look - zato sam odabrala tamniji ruz i rumenilo. Idealna za njezniji ali i intenzivniji make-up - jednostavno je savrsena.
