Urban Decay Naked palettes, anyone who knows makeup knows about these. They have an iconic status and with good reason 🙂
Before I tell you about their latest launch, naked 3 let me introduce you or remind you about basic, 1 and 2
A matte palette, featuring six gorgeous neutrals to wear alone or use to combine and blend. I love this as you don’t normally get matte products in a palette, these really are your perfect day to-night basics.
Venus is a soft, off-white demi-matte, Foxy is a cream bisque matte, Walk of Shame is a very light nude matte, Naked2 is a taupe matte, Faint is a warm, dusty brown matte and Crave is a deepest, darkest brown/black matte.
This case is packed with twelve gorgeous bronze-hued neutrals, and comes with a pro-quality Good Karma Shadow Brush and small mirror. This palette includes a range of textures: everything from glitter to shimmer to matte.

It has slight red undertone,Buck is a deeper beige-brown than Naked.Half Baked is a coppery bronze with a frost-metallic finish,Smog is a medium dark bronze., Darkhorse is a deep chocolate brown with hints of bronze, Toasted is a medium dark brown with a pink shimmery finish,Hustle is a dark plum chocolate brown with a shimmer finish,Creep is a blue-black shimmer with medium amount of glitter,Gunmetal is a blue toned metallic gray.

I love the basics range , I love the simplicity and I like matte shadows, I also like the original Naked palette. I will soon be having a look at 3 and will keep you posted at what I think.
Urban Decay is not sold in retail stores in NZ, personally I would avoid trademe as I think the prices are too high.
US prices start at $28 for the basics and $52 for the twelve shadow palette.
UK prices start at 22 pounds for the basic and 37 pounds for the twelve shadow palette.
Trade me prices start at $65 for the basics and the twelve shade palettes retail for over $110 (too steep for me but keep an eye out you might get it cheaper)
Other NZ stockists are also overpriced with the twelve shadow palette retailing for $120
These products are not available on Strawberry net
So I have done the donkey work for you and the following is the cheapest supplier at the moment with free international postage, prices are in Australian dollars but with the exchange rate at the moment it is pretty good for us 🙂
