My friend Jenny did a nice informational review post about the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for you guys! Thanks Jenny! ~ Megan
Now, I know the buzz of the Urban decay Naked 2 palette has kind of waned, but my amazing boyfriend got it for me for Mother’s day, so I wanted to share it with all of you.
The Naked 2 palette is awesome. It comes with 12 neutral colors that are perfect for a variety of uses, from every day wear to evening dramatic looks. I found that there is quite a bit of fall out, so patting or dabbing the colors on usually works better than sweeping it on the lid. Also, I highly recommend using an eyeshadow primer because I’ve heard from a few people that the colors don’t last if you don’t use one. I personally use Urban Decay’s Potion Primer, but I’m sure any kind of good primer will work.
The colors included in the Naked 2 palette include:
Foxy-matte cream (a little on the yellow side)
Half Baked-metallic neutral gold (also in the Naked palette)
Chopper-metallic rose gold with silver micro glitters
Snakebite-satin deep bronze
Pistol-satin steel gray
Verve-metallic gray with pink undertones
YDK-metallic taupe with copper micro glitter (it almost seems toasted)
Busted-satin, plum dark brown (I LOVE this color so much)
Blackout-matte black (perfect for liner use)
I haven’t had a chance to play with it as much as I would like, but so far my favorites are Chopper, Tease (I LOVE this matte), YDK and Busted. I also love that there is a very pigmented, matte, black.
It costs $50, and we got it at Ulta. I definitely think that it’s worth the money because if you were to buy each of these as a single shadow, you be spending quite a bit more money. (They’re about $18 per shadow!) It also comes with a dual brush with a shading brush on one side and a crease brush on the other, and a travel sized Lip Junkie lip gloss in Naked.
Look how cute it is! I love this lip gloss also. It has a really nice smell and it has a minty taste and feel to it. I’ve noticed that lip color doesn’t really stick to my lips very well, and this is really no different and I also prefer to wear a nude lipstick under this as well because it’s fairly sheer and the lip stick *usually* helps it stay a little longer.
I think that if you’re into neutrals, this is definitely the palette for you. I don’t know if you necessarily need both the Naked and the Naked 2 palettes unless you’re a makeup artist or a neutral lover, like me.
