Urban Decay's Naked palettes are probably the most iconic nude palettes there are in the beauty world. But with the recent launched of their fifth 'Naked' offering, it's becoming tricky to know which one will suit you the best. I've put together a quick guide to help make the decision a little easier. Of course, if you're a nude fanatic like me, there's no reason why you have to stop at just the one!
Naked - the original nude palette from Urban Decay, Naked is made up of 12 eye shadows in a mixture of shimmer, glitter and matte finishes. These shades are slightly warm in tone, so suit warmer skin tones the best. There's also a predominance of shimmery shades, so if you're looking for a matte palette, you'll need to look a little further down this list. £37
Naked 2 - the follow up to Naked, Naked 2 features 12 cooler toned shadows; again in a mix of shimmer, glitter and matte finishes. While Naked might have some smokey blue/black options included, Naked 2 is a powerhouse of bronze and beige tones with a single black thrown in for good measure. Again, it's all pretty shimmery with one or two exceptions and is best suited to those with neutral or cool-toned skin. £37
Naked 3* - with 12 completely new shadows inside, this rose-hued beauty is one of the latest Naked launches from Urban Decay. All of the shadows have a hint of rose or rose gold to them, again in a mix of shimmer, glitter and matte finishes. These shades are a little more tricky to get away with - if you've got pink undertones to your skin I'd avoid this palette, but if you look good in rose-gold jewellery, then this will be the perfect pick for you. £37
Naked Basics - Urban Decay's first matte neutral offering, Naked Basics was a massive hit for many people who loved nude shadows but wanted to avoid a shimmery finish. It contains 6 matte shades (one demi-matte) which are all warm in tone. If you're best suited to the original Naked palette, then this is the Basics choice for you. £22
Naked Basics 2 - a brand new launch, Naked Basics 2 is perfect for matte shadow lovers as it contains 5 mattes and one slightly shimmery highlighter shade. These are all cooler in tone than the Naked Basics palette, so is a good matte partner for those that suit the Naked 2 palette and is the perfect size to pop in your handbag. £22
