After all the hype of the first Urban Decay Naked palette i knew that i had to get in on the Naked 2 palette hype also! As similar as this palette is to the first and as little as i use that one, I am quite happy that i still went ahead and bought this as you can never have too many neutrals in your eyeshadow collection especially when you use them everyday like me!
The packaging differs quite a bit to the first palette. This time the eyeshadows are encased in a metal tin instead of a velvet casing that gets grubby easily. I much prefer the packaging of the Naked 2 palette. It also comes with a double ended brush too! I know that the later versions of the first naked palette came with a brush but i bought mine as soon as it came out and received a double ended eyeliner but i would have much preferred a brush so it is definitely a bonus that this one has a brush! They have also got rid of the mini primer potion too (I must admit im not a massive fan of it, i loved it at first but i much prefer MAC Paint pots now!) and added a mini lipgloss instead, which i probably wont use!
The Naked 2 palette retails for £36 and you get 12 eyeshadows, a double ended crease and shadow brush and also a mini lip junkie lipgloss in naked. All in all i dont think its a bad deal at all!
Lets talk eyeshadows, you receive 12 eyeshadows which range in finishes from matte, shimmer and glitter and 5 of the shades are new. There are only 2 completely matte shades which is an absolute winner with me because i very rarely use them! As with the first naked palette they go from light to dark, left to right.
Overall, i think its a great palette and perfect for neutral lovers. The eyeshadows are excellent quality and highly pigmented and the addition of a double ended brush is brilliant and makes the palette perfect for travel! I know that this will be coming with me on my holidays and im sure it will be all i need!
My favourites so far have to be half baked, verve and YDK. I couldnt recommend this palette enough i really couldnt!
