Urban Decay Naked 2 Pallet Review!

As a follow-up to my first product review, today I will be reviewing the sequel to the Naked pallet, Naked 2.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had lusted over these babies for months! I was not disappointed when they arrived!

First thing is first, the packaging, Urban Decay kicked it up a notch with this pallet with a sturdy metal case compared to the cardboard from the original. Although I don’t hate the cardboard, this is much nicer. Thumbs up.

The eyeshadows: 12 beautiful shades, just like the original.

The pallet comes chock full of 12 beautiful neutral shades. These colours lean more towards the cool tones whereas the original was more warm.

Either way, these colours are gorgeous. Beautiful bridal colours. With the addition of a couple of darker colours its simple to create a darker night look with this pallet as well.

I used Urban Decay Primer Potion under all these swatches…

Foxy: A matte cream. Lovely colour for lid work or highlighting.

Half Baked: The only shade that is featured in both the original and number 2. Luckily its one of my favourites.

Booty Call: Another cream shade but this one is the furthest thing from matte. Beautiful though.

Chopper: A beautiful copper shade with silver shimmer throughout. It’s a great shade because you don’t come across similar ones all that often.

Left to right: Tease, Snakebite, Suspect and Pistol.

Tease: Gorgeous matte light brown. A great choice for one of the (few) mattes in the pallet. Very versatile.

Snakebite: Metallic, dark brown. Another of my favourites. This shade creates a smokey eye to die for! LOVE!

Suspect: One of the warmed based shades in the pallet, it’s an almost golden beige. Whatever you want to call it, its lovely.

Pistol: A shimmery grey. While this is a nice colour, I am yet to decided how usable it will be. Only time will tell.

Left to right: Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout.

Left to right: Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout.

Verve: One of my absolute favourites! A gorgeous oystery shimmer. Absolute heaven.

YDK: A cool metallic bronze. Urban Decay nail bronze eyeshadows. This is no exception.

Busted: A deeper brown. I love this addition, perfect for the bride that wants a bit more definition.

Blackout: A pure matte black. I have encountered mixed reviews on this shade. I can only go off what is in my pallet and I love it.

Overall, I love this pallet, only complaint (AGAIN) is the lack of mattes. However, the basics pallet review is coming up 😉

The Lip Junkie Lipgloss.

The Lip Junkie Lipgloss.

I LOVE THIS GLOSS! Be warned, it is a lip plumper meaning it is full of peppermint and it tingles like crazy. I didn’t notice my lips getting any plumper but the colour and texture of this gloss is yummy! Such a beautiful pink colour that isn’t too in your face and it’s not sticky at all. Highly recommend this gloss (I believe they retail at around $20 each).

The good karma brush, I like this one better than the one with the original but it’s still nothing special, still a nice gift though 🙂

To sum it up…

Cost:
$50 give or take, the price does change quite often.

Where from:
Beautybay.com

What you get:
Pallet with 12 colours, a travel sized lip junky lip gloss and a double ended good karma brush.

Pros:
The eyeshadows are beautiful! The lip gloss is a great bonus. Also, the revamped packaging is a huge plus.

Cons:
The only con is the lack of matte shades.

Would I purchase it again: 
A million times over, its stunning.

Will it be going into my personal or professional kit:
Professional, its lovely for weddings.
