Seriously, if you’re hauling the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette you’re going to want the Urban Decay Naked Basics Double Ended Brush to go along with it. Because lord knows a good brush is well worth it’s weight in gold!

The Urban Decay Naked Basics Double Ended Brush ($20) is the perfect pairing with your new Naked 2 Basics Palette. This full size brush is one you’ll likely reach for daily. One side has a shadow blender brush where as the other has a flat head smudger head which can be used to blend, smudge, and line. The shorter, bushier shadow brush is ideal for swiping on shades, blending them out, and creating a perfectly buffed out eye look where as the opposite end is perfect for lining, smudging out, and blending shades onto the lash line.

The dark brown, soft touch handle has a gold Naked Basics logo on it so it matches up quite nicely with the Urban Decay Naked range of products packaging. The soft synthetic bristles are tipped with white and derived from recycled PBT plastic bottles so the brush is both cruelty free and vegan. I had to experience with shedding and the brush washes well while retaining it’s shape when it dries down.

Urban Decay launched it’s Good Karma Brush Collection about two or three years ago and I must say their brushes are of excellent quality be they full size like this one or mini versions like the one we’ve seen in the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette.

The Urban Decay Naked Basics Double Ended Brush is one of the versatile brushes that’s worth investing in as you’ll reach for it often!

Loves it!
It’ll be available shortly at Sephora, Sephora.com, Ulta, Ulta.com, Beauty.com, Macy’s, and of course, at urbandecay.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I love UD eye brushes, even the ones that come with the palettes. I will have to get this one too for sure!

    I’m not fond of the UD brushes. In general, I don’t like synthetic fibers for eyeshadow.

    I’m a sucker for keeping them with their palettes, though, because they tend to match them and have the name on them. Otherwise, I’d probably have regifted one or two. The only one I really use is the one that came with the Electric palette, the short dense end.
