NEW URBAN DECAY NAKED ULTIMATE BASICS ALL MATTE EYESHADOW PALETTE SWATCHES PRICE RELEASE DUPES


Excitement frickin’ overload. Another Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette, with 12 brand spanking new all MATTE shades. I am high key losing it over this news. Matte shadows are my kryptonite and UD shadows are my one true love. To me they are the crème de la crème, no other brand comes close to touching their quality, in my opinion, of course. This will be available from urbandecay.com for $55 on September 18th, judging from past releases usually a month later (sometimes even longer) new launches hit the UK, so I would guess October it will be coming to the UK and will be around the £38 mark. 

The 12 shadows are all matte, in case that wasn't clear enough and are desribed as:
  • Blow - light nude
  • Nudie - soft pink nude 
  • Commando - light taupe brown
  • Tempted - pale brown 
  • Instinct - medium pink-taupe 
  • Lethal - reddish brown
  • Pre-Game - pale yellow
  • Extra Bitter - burnt orange
  • Faith - medium warm brown 
  • Lockout - rich neutral brown
  • Magnet - smoky grey 
  • Blackjack - warm black

The swatches are stunning and I think the stand out shades for me are Extra Bitter, Lethal and Lockout. Any neutral lover, like me, would consider this a must have palette, not only can you create a myriad of wearable looks but also dramatic smoky eyes, halo eyes and more. I am really impressed with the look and colour selection on offer here, beautiful colours to compliment so many eye colours, blue eyes especially would really suit this palette, and skin tones coupled with to-die-for rose gold packaging with their trademark dual-sized brush and huge mirror this palette ticks all the boxes.

In terms of dupes, I do think the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Amazonian Clay palette (£33) has a similar premise, all matte shades with a smattering of perfect transition shades finished with yellow, cream and ivory highlights and a matte black. Same formula, but not the same shadows. Many bloggers speak on the inconsistency of Tarte eyeshadows whereas very rarely do Urban Decay receive that criticism. I can't speak on that as I don't have my hands on the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette or the Tartelette palette, but based on the photos here I think the Urban Decay one has less purple/mauve tones and looks more pigmented. What are your thoughts? Take care.

 What do you think of the new Naked Ultimate Basics palette, will you purchase?

Kiran

  10. I think for a five pound difference I would definitely go with the UD palette over the Tartelette one! I've been eyeing this up over Instagram for the past few days and oh my god I'm pretty sure I NEED it. So much matte, and beautiful shades, and Urban Decay-ness. I am SO ready
