I’m here to talk about another of my favorite palette from Urban Decay. This time round is the Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette. Many of you know that I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes and for those who don’t, I guess after reading this post you will get to know and understand why I love Urban Decay’s eyeshadow palettes.
On my several posts back, I did reviews on Naked 3 and Naked palette but today I’m super duper excited to be doing color swatches out of this Naked 2 palette that I just acquired recently. So, now I’m officially a proud owner of three Urban Decay Naked Palettes… whoa…ha!ha!
The packaging for NAKED 2 is quite similar to Naked 3 which is of metal tin packaging. It consists of twelve beautiful color shades for natural everyday wear and evening smoky eyes look.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($54.00 for 0.71 oz.) contains twelve eyeshadows:
So many times, I’ll come across a neutral matte eyeshadow and first I’m like “yay” and then when I noticed the shades are all so shimmery that my next reaction goes “boo” 😛
I didn’t mean it in a wrong way. I mean, I love sparkle and shine but sometimes it’s just nice to have one or two shades of matte in the palette. I’m always happy with Urban decay’s eyeshadow palettes since it seems to keep things interesting.
So, this is another reason I’m crushing on this Naked 2 palette. It has twelve gorgeous neutral shades in shimmery or frosted finish are the Half Baked (Copper Brown), Booty Call (White Beige), Chopper (Orange Red), Snake Bite (Dark Bronze), Suspect (Champagne Bronze), Pistol (Grey Brown), Verve (Beige Grey), YDK (Coppery Red) and Busted (Burgundy) and yay!!! – three matte shades of Foxy (Yellow Beige), Tease (Mauve Brown) and Blackout (Dark Black).
It comes with a dual-ended brush – the Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush. I love the fact that this Naked 2 is also of warmer-toned shades as Naked 1 even though there are many similar shades to merit both. But I’m all about neutral warm shade, babe! (giggling!!!)
Behold as I guide you inside Naked 2 eyeshadow palette. Be marvelled by the beauty of this yet another incredible Naked palette by Urban Decay.
Out of the twelve shades only five are NEW. They are Foxy, Chopper, Tease and Pistol. My favorite shades are Half-Baked, Chopper, Snake Bite and Pistol. I’m planning to do a FOTD makeup tutorial in my next post using these favorite color shades I mentioned with a review up next.
The quality, overall in my opinion is good. I love how pigmented each formula is but I don’t think it’s as good across the board as the first palette, but for $54 and twelve full-sized eyeshadows it’s certainly worth taking a look at.
I just think that if you have Naked 1 already then Naked 2 isn’t much of a leap. I believe that Naked 2 is born out of demand for its warm-toned neutral shades from its predecessor while promoting a few new shades for us to play with.
It’s available at Sephora, Amazon, ebay and online.
Which Naked Palette will you pick?
