The Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette was FINALLY available in Austria by the end of October and of course I brought it home! Even though I already own the Urban Decay Naked 1 and the basics 1 palette, I still find this one interesting enough for me to purchase 🙂
First and briefly,the packaging is stunning! It’s very well build and has a magnetic closure.Inside,you will find a large,high quality mirror and a double ended synthetic brush.The brush doesn’t really work well with this palette but actually rather good with cream shadows.
Overall,I’m happy with this palette it has cool and warm toned shadows,which is really nice to have and travel with. There is minimum kick off,most colors were pigmented and easy to blend,except “instinct” and “Pre-Game”with bad color payoff and “blackjack” which is a bit patchy.Also bear (Rawrrr) in mind that “Lethal” is way darker than it looks in the pan. I feel like the Naked 1 palette still has the best quality shadows and urban decay have not topped it yet with another palette.
Now the swatches.They were all swatched over the original urban decay primer potion.And I did go over them more than once.So,no one swipe wonder here.
Hope this post somewhat helped you if you’re still deciding 🙂 I would say go for it,when you don’t already have like 5 different high-end nude palettes.It’s an amazing everyday eyeshadow palette!
I will make sure to post some looks done with this palette very soon!
