Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Eye Shadow Palette

Third palette review within a week – yikes! I really have an addiction, don't I? Well, they say that everyone has a vice of their own and I'll gladly embrace this type of vice anytime. Here I have a gorgeous little palette, the latest addition to the ‘naked’ eye shadow family to be precise – the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Eye Shadow Palette (€27.50 at BeautyBay.com). This little beaut won many hearts during these past months and it's completely understandable – it features the most yummy mattes I've ever seen! Oh, just so I don't forget, you can expect the first Naked Basics palette review during next week (and an accompanying look). Smaller than most palettes I've seen, some say it's approximately as big as an iPhone (not the 6 plus, obviously) – I can definitely say that it's tad smaller than a Sleek Blush by 3 palette. Some might think that it's too small, that it offers less than what it's worth in money – I strongly have to disagree. This little guy not only comes in a lovely, soft to the touch material but it's very sturdy as well. Even the mirror on the inside of the lid is quite practical and useful. I find that it photographs well, is extremely travel & purse-friendly, sleek and it provides great matte eye shadows which create perhaps one of my all-time favorite looks!. You get six shades inside Naked 2 Basics palette (Skimp, Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, Undone) and they are more than enough for my taste and preference to create the most beautiful, soft eye looks. 

Treca recenzija paleta sjena za oci u manje od sedam dana – opa! Ocigledno imam ovisnost o paletama ali kako kazu – svako ima neki porok a ja cu drage volje prihvatiti da mi je porok ovako lijep. Ovaj put sam za vas pripremila krasnu malu paleticu, tacnije posljednji dodatak ‘naked’ porodici – radi se o Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics paleti sjena za oci (cca 54KM, kupljena preko BeautyBay.com stranice). Ovaj maleni ljepotan je osvojio mnoga srca proteklih mjeseci a to je sasvim razumljivo – dom je najljepsim mat sjenama koje su moje oci vidjele! Ah, da ne zaboravim, iduce sedmice mozete ocekivati recenziju i originalne Naked Basics palete (uz prigodan mini look). Manja od vecine paletica koje su mi privlacile paznju, neki je usporedjuju sa velicinom iPhone-a (ne 6s modela koji je isuvise velik za poredjenje) – ono sa cime mogu porediti dimenzije ove palete jesu Sleek Blush by 3 palete rumenila od kojih je Naked 2 Basics nesto manja. Ovako umanjenih dimenzija, mozda ce nekoga nagnati da pomisli kako ne pruza mnogo zauzvrat za cijenu koju ima – licno, uopste se ne mogu sloziti. Ovaj simpaticni malisan ne samo da je upakovan u tanko, cvrsto, vizuelno lijepo i mekano na dodir kuciste, upravo zbog malih dimenzija odgovara nosenju na putovanja ali i dnevnom neseseru. Ogledalo sa unutarnje strane poklopca je cak prakticno i upotrebljivo. Primjetila sam da je izrazito ftotgenicna paleta ali sto je najbitnije, sjene koje sadrzi su prekrasne neutralne nijanse mat finisa sa kojima sam kreirala mozda i najdrazi look od svih! Ukupno se radi o sest nijansi (Skimp, Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, Undone) koje su vise nego dovoljne (barem za moje potrebe i ukus) da kreiraju najdivnije, mekane make-up look-ove.

Perhaps those with skintones similar or close to the shades in this palette might feel like they'll get no color payoff but – my skintone looks rather close & swatched on the arm, they don't look too punchy. However, when applied to the eyes, they give the most loveliest soft look I've ever seen. It's sort of obvious that Naked 2 Basics is more oriented towards cool, taupe hues whilst the first Naked Basics is a tad warmer. I'll have my final say in a post where I'll compare the two. It does seem to be the case as far as I can tell at the moment. Pigmentation is fabulous, as expected from Urban Decay. ‘Skimp’ is the highlight shade with a satin finish but the remaining five shades are completely matte (but not dry or powdery on the lids). They have a lovely texture, not too powdery but there is some fallout – nothing major but worth noting (maybe a smidge more prominent than with the original Naked palettes). Longevity is perfect (an entire day), they don't crease and you don't even need a primer underneath but it makes them adhere just that little bit more. I'm in love with this palette and believe all those who prefer softer, natural and jazy make-up look will be too. These shades are a tad flat as any mattes would be so you do get amazing shades for contouring but also for very unique hazy effect. Ideal for everyday wear but you can also really smoke it up for evenings. 

Zadovoljstvo sa ovom paletom (ali cini mi se, i sa originalom) ce ovisiti o tonu vase koze. Tu imam podvojeno misljenje jer, iako je ton moje koze relativno slican prvih par svjetlijih nijansi iz palete i one stvarno ne djeluju posebno izrazajno na swatchevima – nanesene na ocima pricaju jednu skroz drugaciju pricu. Jednostavno njihova ljepota i posebnost dolazi do izrazaja na ocima, kreirajuci najljepse ‘mekane’ nijanse koje kao da se prelijevaju jedna u drugu (savrseno se blendaju). Naked 2 Basics vrijedi kao paleta hladnijih tonova u odnosu na prvu Naked Basics koja je na glasu kao toplih tonova – ove teme cu se dotaci u zasebnom komparativnom postu koji takodjer mozete ocekivati uskoro. Pigmentacija je fantasticna, kao sto je i ocekivano od Urban Decay-a. Nijansa ‘Skimp’ sluzi i kao hajlajter posto je svilenkastog satenskog finisa i sadrzi izuzetno sitan shimmer. Ostalih pet nijansi iz palete su u potpunosti mat (ali ne suhe i praskaste na ocima). Krasne su teksture no primjetila sam blago rasipanje – ne bih rekla da je problematicno, mozda je mrvicu izrazenije nego kod standardnih Naked paleta. Trajnost je izvrsna, traju cijeli dan bez nakupljanja u pregibu oka cak i bez baze. Ipak, baza cini da sjene bolje prijanjaju uz kozu. Ne znam da li mozete reci ali, ja sam zaljubljena u ovu paletu! Mislim da bi sve vi koje volite prirodnu sminku, mekseg izgleda bile prezadovoljne takodjer. Ove nijanse zbog mat finisa djeluju pomalo bezivotno u pakovanju ali na ocima one dobiju dusu, savrsene su za konturiranje, idealne za dnevni make-up ali prigodne i za nocni.
