Seeing as everybody & their dog seem to have the Urban Decay Basics palette, I thought it was about time I joined the party. Actually, this was one of my Christmas gifts but I only got around to trying it for the first time a month ago... whoops!!
This is the smallest of the Urban Decay palettes & costs £22 in Debenhams. The casing itself has a slightly rubberised finish to it which I love as it doesn't feel like it's going to slip out of your hands any time soon & the mirror is a great addition for travelling because let's be honest here, this is THE most perfect size for taking on holidays.
Unlike the other UD palettes, this contains mostly matte colours, & only one shimmer (Venus), again which suits me & my old(ish!), crêpey eyelids down to the ground! My daughter told me to try her Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion with it too & I can't believe the difference it made to the (already great) application & longevity of the shadows.
Using my brushes from ELF (which are fantastic, btw!), they applied like a dream & felt like velvet on my eyelids. They were really blendable & I'm not joking, my makeup did not budge a millimetre in the 7 hours I was wearing it! However, I'm not doing any swatches on here because, quite frankly, you can go onto any beauty blog or Youtube beauty video & see them reviewed & they will look a million times better than on my eyelids - trust me!!
So to summerise the Urban Decay Basics palette, no creasing, no smudging, no fading, what's not to love about it?
