Review: Urban Decay Naked2 Basics

I'm changing up Saturday Style with a review that I meant to get up earlier this week-- Urban Decay Naked2 Basics palette. I have been using the Naked Basics palette for over a year and was excited when this one came out a couple weeks ago.  

I was actually looking for a shade to replace WOS from the Naked Basics palette (Urban Decay, please make this shade a single!) and ended up intrigued with the colors in this palette.. .I love them! The shades in Naked2 Basics are cooler taupe/gray shades whereas Naked Basics is more warm. Grays have been big for me this fall so you know I'm all over these! 

Shades L-R: Skimp (soft beige, satin), Stark (nude pink, matte), Frisk (soft warm gray, matte), Cover (soft brown, matte), Primal (reddish-brown gray, matte), Undone (charcoal gray, matte)

The pigment of these shades is good and surprisingly for mattes, the shadows do not look chalky. While I like all the colors, I'd rather use Venus as a highlight over Skimp as it's lighter and pops more.

Below are swatches on my light skin, Frisk and Stark are hard to see, my kitchen's light isn't that great, sorry!

Naked2 Basics compared with Naked Basics-- you can use both palettes interchangeable as all the shades will complement each other.

Today I'm wearing a soft nude look with a subtle cat eye:

Base: Stark
Crease: Cover
Highlight: Skimp
