Yep. Another Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review.


Yes. After much restocking of the Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay's website, I finally was able to order the palette. I am so glad that I did. Being the neutral loving girl that I am, the first Naked Palette is one of my most used eye shadow palettes that I own. I am sure that I will get as much or more use out of this second palette.

The palette contains a total of 12 Urban Decay eye shadows.The Urban Decay website says that this palette contains 5 exclusive new shades. I am not sure exactly which ones are "exclusively new" because all of them seem to be new to me with the exception of 3 shades.  One of these shades, "Half Baked", is also in the first Naked Palette. I know that the shade "Chopper" is a permanent eye shadow. This color has been featured in other palettes. The color "YDK" is also a permanent shadow. All of the eye shadows contain the expected Urban Decay eye shadow quality: creamy and great color payoff. The exception to this would be the colors "Foxy" and "Tease". These two colors are matte and are a little bit on the chalky side. I love that with this palette they went for more neutral and taupe colors rather than warmer colors. Great for those cool skin toned girls out there. :)

The packaging of this palette is pretty different than the first. The actual palette is in a hard tin-ish case that snaps shut. When you open the palette, on the top lid part, there is a full length mirror that takes up the entire inner lid. 

The extras that come with this palette include a double ended eye shadow brush and a mini lip gloss. I love that they included the double ended brush. One side is for packing color onto the lid. The other side is for blending. This will be very convenient to have if you're planning on taking the palette with you to do your makeup on the go. The Lip Junkie lip gloss in the shade "Naked" is awesome. It claims to "cool and plump" the lips and contains a minty taste. It feels so good on the lips and it's not too minty.

The price of this palette is $50. This is a phenomenal value given that one Urban Decay eye shadow alone costs $17. 
You can do the math.
 I have been using this palette ever since I got it in the mail. I would have to say that my favorite colors are "YDK" and "Pistol". When I was deciding if I wanted to purchase this palette, I was wondering if I needed this palette if I already own the first one. Yes, there are a lot of similar colors. I would say if you love neutral eye shadows and you did get a lot of use out of the first Naked Palette than you might want to consider purchasing this. If you're not a big fan of neutrals or you already own a lot of neutral eye shadows, than I would say skip it. 
If you're still not sure about whether you should purchase this palette or have any questions about it, be sure to leave me a comment. :)

And now for some pics..



Love the name "Booty Call" hahaha Oh Urban Decay.
