Urban Decay Naked Palette 2: Get Naked... Again!

Friday, June 29, 2012

FINALLY! Yesterday, I was visiting Paris with my parents. We went shopping in Marne La Vallée and a shoppingcenter near by. Suddenly, I saw a Sephora store and finally, I could buy the Naked 2 palette. They say this is THE bestselling product in Sephora right now.

 This is what the outside of the packaging looks like. It has a metal compact casing.
And this is the inside. As you can see, it has a nice large mirror on the inside. The original Naked palette had a smaller mirror, which was not really easy to work with, in my opinion.

This palette contains 12 neutral eyeshadows, some of them brand new and exclusive in this palette! The eyeshadows have different textures and finishes, it contains a mix of mattes, satins, and frosts.

From left to right: Foxy - Half baked (which was also in the original palette) - Bootycall - Chopper

                                 Swatch: Foxy - Half Baked - Bootycall - Chopper

Foxy is really close to my skintone, which is why it doesn't really show up that well. But you can use this as a crease color, to help blend out other shadow more easily. It can also be used as a highlight. 
My favorites: Bootycall and Chopper.

 Left to right: Tease - Snakebite - Suspect - Pistol

                              Swatch: Tease - Snakebite - Suspect - Pistol

My favorite: Suspect. It glided on so smoothly on my skin and I just love the color!

Left to right: Verve - YDK - Busted - Blackout

                           Swatch: Verve - YDK - Busted - Blackout

I think Blackout could have been a bit more creamy and pigmented. I had to built up this swatch a bit. It's a great color, don't get me wrong, but I think it could've been better.
My favorites: Verve and YDK

All the eyeshadows are amazing. They glide on your skin like nothing and feel as soft as butter.Urban Decay did (again) an amazing job creating this palette!

This palette also comes with a double ended brush. On the right, we have a crease brush and on the other side we can see the shadow brush. These brushes feel really soft and I think they will be great!
 This palette also containes a little Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss in 'Naked'.

Swatch: Naked

This color is an everyday, neutral pinkish color. It's a bit sheer, what makes this wearable and gives you the opportunity to use it alone or over a lipstick you may already own. 

I'm really happy I finally got my hands on this palette, I've been wanting this eversince it first appeared on their website. I payed 43 euros for this in the French Sephora. Yes, that is kind of expensive, but if you look at the prices of a single UD eyeshadow, this is a great deal. A single eyeshadow is 17 euros. Yes, you have read this correctly, 17! With this palette, you get 12 full-sized ones for only 43 euros in stead of 204 euros (thanks, calculator), which is an amazing deal! Also, these are colors you will use a lot. They're perfect for school, a wedding, work, ... But also a night out with friends because of the more dark and smoky colors. You can go from day to night with this palette! ;)

Do you own this palette? What do you think about it?
