I've had the Urban Decay Naked ultimate basics Palette for a few weeks now, I actually picked it up on the day it was released into stores. I had seen it on Urban Decay's instagram ages ago and knew I was going to need it!

The packaging is beautiful, it's very photogenic as you can see above. The packaging is really good quality, it's really sturdy. 

There's a really good selection of shades in the palette, I have swatched them below! I love that there's a mixture of natural shades and black/ grey shades. I tend to opt for brown/ nude shades for day to day and a smokey eye for nights out so this has everything I need.

I love that this is a matte palette as I find most palettes tend to have really lovely shades but they have shimmer or glitter in and I don't always go for a shimmery shadow. I've been opting for matte shadows alot recently.

You get 12 shades and they are decent a size! Urban Decay shadows are my favourite. They are highly pigmented and really easy to use. I find them easy to build up and apply. I use my Spectrum shadow brushes. I like to apply a shade all over the lid and sometimes I apply a darker shade into the crease to create a smokey effect.

I think this palette is such a value for money as you get a great shade selection and some great quality shadows. The palette is gorgeous and I would recommend it if your after an eye shadow palette with lots of matte shades. If you like a selection of matte and shimmer shades i'd say to go for your standard Naked palettes.

Whats your favourite Urban Decay eye shadow palette?
