Where Aussie girls can buy the Naked Ultimate Basics palette
UPDATE: Urban Decay's latest masterpiece is now available in Australia.
Aussies can buy the new Naked Ultimate Basics Palette at MECCA here!
After years of begging and pleading via social media, Urban Decay fans finally had their prayers answered. The brand announced this week through its Instagram account that it will be releasing a Naked palette with only matte colours: 11 matte and one semi-matte for highlighting.
Urban Decay posted a photo of the new palette earlier and it clearly shows all 12 of its brand-new shades with their names: Blow, Nudie, Commando, Tempted, Instinct, Lethal, Pre-Game, Extra Bitter, Faith, Lockout, Magnet and Blackjack.
The all-matte colour offering isn't the only new feature of this palette. In a departure from the standard rectangular shape of all the other Naked palettes, the Ultimate Basics palette is square. A design that will hopefully fit a lot more comfortably into makeup bags around the world.
The palette will reportedly go on sale 18 September on UrbanDecay.com but we've heard through the grapevine that we won't see it here in Australia until 11 November – just in time for Singles' Day.
Zonal pricing has yet to be announced but Aussies can expect something roughly close to the US$55 cost, factoring in the exchange rate of course.
Australian stockists of Urban Decay include StrawberryNET and MECCA so these are the stores you should look to when buying your Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
The Ultimate Basics palette has been a long time coming. In fact, Urban Decay shared a video on its Instagram showcasing makeup junkies pleading with the brand over social media for an all-matte version of the cult makeup palette.
