Review: Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Review: Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Time to get my lazy butt in to gear and review some more make-up! Today’s review is on an extremely well known and loved product, Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette. This palette is without a doubt my favourite make -up product in the entire world. God bless my boyfriend and his amazing taste in picking me out make up that I always end up loving.These shades are so flattering and always make my brown eyes really stand out. This palette has twelve shades that complement one another extremely well and make it very easy to go from a day look to a night look without having to purchase other products. I’ve never had any problems with creasing and they wear beautifully all day long. In the photos “Foxy” and “Bootycall” didn’t show up in the swatch quite as well as I hoped so I did a weird swipe my finger so you can see the colour properly technique. I would highly recommend this palette to anyone wanting a cool toned, neutral palette that will last them forever.

Product’s Claim:

What it is:
The most anticipated sequel of the decade, Naked 2 features a dozen pigment-rich taupe and gray-beige neutrals, plus five exclusive, new shades.

What it does:
The follow up to the original best selling Naked palette, this stunning second edition proves that neutral is anything but boring. Showcasing a dozen completely different shades than the first bronze-based collection, it includes a stunning range from pale and deep, to matte and sparkly. You’ll achieve a host of new neutral looks, smoky dramatic eyes, and everything in between. The palette also includes a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush (available only in this palette), and four sample packets of Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

This set contains:
– 12 x 0.05 oz Eyeshadows in Foxy (cream bisque with matte finish), Half Baked (golden-bronze with shimmering finish), Booty Call (shimmering cork), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver microglitter), Tease (creamy pale brown with matte finish), Snake Bite (dark bronze shimmer with metallic base), Suspect (pale golden beige with shimmering finish), Pistol (light gray-brown with shimmering finish), Verve (oyster with shimmering finish), YDK (cool bronze shimmer with metallic base), Busted (deep brown with shimmering finish), Blackout (blackest black with matte finish)
– Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush
– 4 x 0.025 oz Eyeshadow Primer Potion sample packets. 

What else you need to know:
Urban Decay’s packaging takes on a modern feel in Naked2. With an art-school-inspired tin case and a hinged lid, it’s smooth and cool to the touch. Compare Naked2 with first Naked palette—packaged in warm, rich brown velvet with gold foil lettering—and you won’t be able to resist owning both.

The eye shadows in this palette coordinate with the 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil: Perversion (blackest-black matte)/Pistol (light gray-brown shimmer).

The Pros:

  1. Highly pigmented, a little bit goes a very long way.
  2. Great colour selection, twelve shades that complement one another all in one handy dandy palette.
  3. Creamy formula, they blend extremely well with very little effort or tugging on the eyelid.
  4. This palette is bound to last you an extremely long time. When you see the pictures you’ll understand what I mean, I’ve owned this product for almost two years and I’ve hardly made a dent.
  5. Rich taupe and grey beige neutrals, which make this palette extremely easy to wear on a daily basis. They also make it easy to go from daytime to night time looks very quickly.
  6. Metal packaging, keeps my product safe when I’m traveling.
  7. Cost, the more I get into make-up the more I’m realizing this is the average for higher end eyeshadow palettes. Retails for $64.00 (Canadian).

The Cons:

  1. Cost, this palette retails at Sephora for $64.00 (Canadian). More than your average drug store product but the average for higher end palettes.
  2. More shimmery shades than mattes, about 9 of the shades are shimmery and the other three are mattes.
  3. Possibility of fallout, some of the eyeshadows are prone to getting a little messy.
  4. The brush that comes within the palette isn’t the best for blending.
  5. Some of the lighter shades may not show up too well depending on your skin tone.
