The world’s best-selling palette of all time, filled with warm neutral shades from matte nude to shimmering metallic gunmetal.

Palette Breakdown

12 warmer toned neutrals

Touted as the world’s best-selling palette, I refer to the original Urban Decay Naked as the neutral palette that launched a million beauty obsessions! The idea was to provide 12 neutral shadows in a range of shades and finishes all in the same compact, and well, you could say it was kind of a brilliant move. It’s still one of my all-time favorites, and I feel confident saying if this were the only Naked palette you ever purchased, you’d be really, really, really happy!

All the must-have matte shades you need from off-white to black in one petite palette!

Palette Breakdown

6 neutral shadows

Here’s the deal, I’m a girl who likes options, so if it’s between a Naked palette with 12 shadows and different finishes or a Naked palette with 6 shadows and the same finish, I’m always going to opt for variety. At the same time, when it comes to eyes, absolutely everyone needs a handful of matte shadows, and they’re all included in the Naked Basics Palette. Bottom line – if you’re a makeup minimalist, prefer matte shadow over any type of sparkle, or just want a easy everyday palette, Naked Basics is right for you.

Rich, taupe-based neutrals fill this art-school inspired palette in cooler tones from creamy bisque and golden bronze shimmer to the blackest black matte.

Palette Breakdown

12 cooler tones neutrals
3 mattes
8 shimmers
1 micro-glitter
2-in-1 double-ended shadow & blending brush

After the original Naked palette launched, we simply demanded more eye shadow amazingness and the Naked2 Palette was born! It’s filled with another 12 neutral shadows that run a bit cooler in tone but are all equally gorgeous in their payoff. The biggest difference to me between Naked2 and the other palettes is that 8 out of 12 shades are shimmers. Eye bling anyone? We already know I’m all in!

A cooler take on a matte palette with taupe-based hues from soft nude satin to the richest, smoky brown matte.

6 neutral taupe-hued shadows
5 new shades

perfect finish complement to the Naked2 palette

After reading about the Naked2 Palette I’m pretty sure you can guess how the Naked2 Basics Palette came to be. We’re such a demanding bunch aren’t we! Similar to the original Basics palette, this little beauty comes with 6 matte neutrals (5 of which are totally new shades!) that are also slightly cooler in tone. The great news, regardless of the whole warm/cool thing, all of these shadows will work on any skin tone – promise! Plus, when it comes to matte shadow, Urban Decay has one of the best formulas e-v-e-r, so all of the colors have the richest payoff possible.

The perfect palette of all-new rose-hued neutrals ranging from the palest pink matte and stunning rose gold shimmer to smoky black with sparkling flecks of red.

Palette Breakdown

1 matte-satin
1 matte with sparkle
3 satins
2 shimmers
2 metallic micro-glitters

I think I may have teared up when I first laid eyes on the Naked3 palette. Don’t judge! While I’m not always a rose-colored glasses girl, I am definitely a rose gold girl. The shade certainly had a clear influence in this palette. Whether shimmer, sparkle, or matte, each insanely gorgeous shadow in the Naked3 Palette is infused with blush undertones and in case you can’t tell, I’m a HUGE fan!
