Back to the Basics: Round 2

As you all know I absolutely love my Naked Basics palette from Urban Decay.  Not only does it contain 6 natural matte colors that are perfect for taking any look from day-to-night, but its also ideal for travelling.  If you’re going out of town for the weekend just throw it in your makeup bag and you’re good to go.  Well now my darling Urban Decay has come out with yet another basics palette.


Yes, they have created another little palette that I will also want.  But, upon looking at it further, is it worth purchasing if you already own the first?  Here is a comparison (no photo creds)


The first basics palette is full of warmer tones while the second is much cooler.  Although not entirely similar, I dont think I will be purchasing (warmer tends to look better on my skin tone than cooler does).  If you have fair skin then I would suggest the second, while for more olive and neutral skin types might be better off with the first.  Personally the second seems like a more muted version of the first palette with a cooler feel.  I also think there may be a bit more versatility in the first palette with the wider range of colors from super light to that extreme black.

Both are currently at retail for $29 dollars in Ulta and Sephora.
