Naked Basics - Worth the Hype?

I hauled this palette recently in a video and had a few requests to tell you what I think of it.  This is the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette.  I bought mine at Sephora after being tempted for months.  Many other bloggers and vloggers have been raving about this product.  As you can see from the photo above, it is quite compact.
I think this is the perfect compact to carry with you or to take on vacation.  You can  make countless looks from subtle and simple to vampy and sexy. 
The Naked Basics comes with six shades.  I had been looking for a good matte palette and this has been fabulous.  I have worn a combination of these shades to work every day since I bought it.

Venus is the only colour with a slight satin finish, with the other four being completely matte.  I am very impressed with the colour pay-off, the pigment, how long the shades last and just the over-all product.  I even used Crave as my eyeliner to create a more night-time appropriate look last Saturday. 
I always thought these six shades looked like nothing special and that they wouldn't be worth the hype or money ($32 in Canada).
I was wrong.
I have used every single colour and absolutely love the results.  They can be mixed in a number of different ways and for six high-quality eyeshadows, the price is reasonable. 

This is just a quick example of a look I did for work today.  I love how it really makes my eyes pop, but is suited for the office, creating a soft, yet put-together look.   
Spoiler alert: this will be in my May favourites.  If you've been on the fence about Naked Basics, come over to my side.  You won't regret it;)
