Bare Necessities Matte3 Palette

Silk Naturals Winter 2017 Collection Bare Necessities Matte3 palette vs Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette Dupes

The Silk Naturals Winter 2017 Collection contains the Bare Necessities Matte3 palette, which is a vegan dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette. If you love the Urban Decay colors but you need a formula that is vegan, gluten free, talc free and bismuth oxychloride free, this is it! I swatched the two side by side for you to compare.

Silk Naturals is swatched on the left. Urban Decay is swatched on the right. All swatches are on Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Other Eyeshadows

These are not new colors, but they’re gorgeous and I thought they might be pretty lid shades with the Bare Necessities Matte3 palette.

Silk Naturals Agent, Pilot swatches

Agent – Pilot
Agent – a light plum with hints of grey and a nearly matte pearl finish (MAC Crystal dupe)
Pilot – a light opaque taupe with a strong layer of pink interference.

Silk Naturals Idolize, MAC Idol Eyes dupe

Idolize – a purple blue color with an intense layer of gold on top. (MAC Idol Eyes dupe)

I think these three eyeshadows would be pretty with Thunder, the deep grey taupe.


Silk Naturals Ozone, Iced swatch

Ozone – Iced
Ozone – sheer purple with a hint of blue duochrome
Iced – a brilliant white highlight with just a hint of gold duochrome.

Silk Naturals Lit, Honey Child swatches

Lit – Honey Child

Lit – a gorgeous sheer rose with gold shimmer, and gold duochrome.

Honey Child – a light, almost neutral glimmery gold.

While these are all 4 gorgeous, I really love Ozone for a highlighter and Lit for a lid eyeshadow color.

Row 1 – Idolize – Agent – Lit – Ozone
Row 2 – Pilot – Honey Child – Iced

Pigment Pots

Silk Naturals Winter 2017 Collection Pigment Pots

Silk Naturals Says
Pigment Pots are highly concentrated pigments specially milled to be used anywhere on your face, or body. We recommend using them with our Stick’em Primer for best results. They’re particularly brilliant when used with clear nail polish to make a stunning streak-free nail polish in just a few steps. Try it on your nails- it’s spectacular. 

You absolutely need a sticky primer with the pigment pots. Otherwise they’ll not adhere to the skin. I swatched these on Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I should have used Glitter Glue.

Foiled – a bright, true silver shimmer. (not pictured) This is the only one I don’t have to show you.

Silk Naturals Slow Burn, Wildfire swatches

Slow Burn – Wildfire

Slow Burn – a deep, saturated, smoldering, sultry red.
Wildfire – a warm, medium stunning red.

Silk Naturals Glimmer, Evergreen swatches

Glimmer – Evergreen

Glimmer – a bright, true gold glitter made from mineral ingredients.

Evergreen – a deep green with a bit of gold shimmer.

Silk Naturals Dark Matter, Trinket swatches

Dark Matter – Trinket

Dark Matter – a rich brownish black with red micro glimmers.

Trinket – a gorgeous coppery brown with small copper bits.

I think Dark Matter would be great with a mixing medium for a sparkly liner.

Silk Naturals Echo, Marshmallow swatches

Echo – Marshmallow

Echo – a shimmery taupe with bits of golden glimmer.

Marshmallow – an opaque, shimmery white.

Silk Naturals Havoc, Blushing swatches

Havoc – Blushing

Havoc – a gorgeous rose gold glimmer.

Blushing – light pink and gold shimmer

Silk Naturals Voltage, Daydream swatches

Voltage – Daydream

Voltage – a ride-or-die dark purple with blue micro glimmers.

Daydream is a light pinky purple with little bits of golden shimmer.

Silk Naturals Winter 2017 Collection

Row 1 – Slow Burn – Glimmer – Dark Matter – Echo – Havoc – Voltage
Row 2 – Wildfire – Evergreen – Trinket – Marshmallow – Blushing – Daydream

Voltage reminds me of Kat Von D Danzig. It’s gorgeous. I also really love Daydream, Blushing and Havoc.

I believe these are intended to be used with nail polish, so you’d put on a base coat, dip your finger in, brush off the extra, then seal it with a top coat. I’d recommend doing a gel that you cure under a LED lamp. When I’ve used minerals for polish in the past, while pretty, it’s never lasted longer than 3 days. A good clear gel topcoat will last you up to 2 weeks.

Velvet Matte Lipsticks

New Silicone Sponge

Silk Naturals Silicone Sponge Silk Naturals Silicone Sponge Silk Naturals Silicone Sponge

The Silicone sponge is one of those things I think you’ll either love or hate. They’ve been really popular on YouTube recently. It works best with liquid and cream foundations. However, it doesn’t always work with concealers. It hated my Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer, and was only marginally better with the Nyx Total Control Drops. It was better with the It Cosmetics Cream foundation.

If you have dry skin, you may not like it. I felt like it emphasized dry patches on me. If you have oily skin, you will probably love it. It really packs primer down into your pores.

Mickey feels like makeup artists on the runway will love it because it’s non-porous and easy to clean, so you can quickly work from one model to the next.

Silk Naturals Winter 2017 Collection

To me the standouts from this release are the Bare Necessities Matte 3 palette, though if you want specific shades I’d say Bubble Bath, Comfy, Cognac and Thunder. Agent, Pilot and Idolize aren’t part of this release but they’re so pretty. Idolize is especially complex.

All 4 highlighters are great but I especially love Ozone and Lit.

The pigment pots are stunning. Daydream looks super complex. Voltage combines my favorite color with my favorite sparkle. Blushing and Havoc look like a winning duo. And Dark Matter is pretty unique.

You know I’m a huge fan of the Velvet Matte formula so I’m always happy to see shade expansions in it. The hyper glosses are all lovely but I think Full Bloom and Sweetheart Rose are the most gorgeous to me.

What do you think of the Silk Naturals Winter 2017 Collection?
