Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

I know it sounds quite sad but I have actually been so excited for the launch of this palette and when Debenhams said they were launching early I was even more super excited. I also managed to bag my Naked 2 even before the 12pm launch, thanks to Sinead ;) Oh what an entertaining night that was! All I can say is, power to the bloggers!

The Naked 2 palette contains 12 beautiful eyeshadows, 5 of which are brand new shades! It also comes with a travel sized Lip Junkie Lip Gloss (3.7ml) and a double ended eyeshadow brush. Each eyeshadow contains 1.3g of product which is great as most eyeshadows contain around 1.5g. The palette retails at £36.00 which does seems quite expensive but if you look at it logically, you are getting 12 eyeshadows, a brush and a lipgloss, you could even count the huge mirror as an extra. I love how the palette comes with a big mirror, it's a practical palette for carrying in your handbag as you've got everything you need to create an everyday look. If you were to buy 12 MAC eyeshadows and one MAC shadow brush it'd cost in the region of £134.00 so you're saving yourself a fortune by buying the Naked 2 palette. The palette also comes in a tin which is great for storage purposes as you don't have to fear that your palette is going to get crushed. The tin packaging also makes the palette a little more sturdy when opening it. 

The palette contains a lovely mix of eyeshadows, including warm and cool toned eyeshadows. You can create so many looks using this palette, I literally use the Naked 1 palette in all of my tutorials. I cannot wait to use this palette in future tutorials.

Overall I love this palette, it's got a lovely mix of eyeshadows and I will definitely use all of them. I cannot say that I dislike any of the eyeshadows, even though some of them are slightly orange toned. If I had to pick my favourite eyeshadows out of the palette, I'd have to say that I prefer all of the eyeshadows on the right side as they're more silver toned and those kind of eyeshadows suit me best.

I think it's great how the palette comes with a double ended brush because you could literally just use that brush to create a look. You don't have to faff around finding another brush to blend or pack on the eyeshadow. The brush is practical and I like it, no mess, no fuss.

I also like the lip gloss too which surprises me because I usually cannot bear wearing lipgloss, the whole hair sticking to your lips scenario does my head in. The lipgloss tastes and smells like after eights which is also another bonus for me, it's like Lush Mint Julips but in lip gloss form. The colour of the lip gloss is really pretty, it's a nude gloss with pink pearl. Great for applying over nude or pink lipstick. 

I'm going to be doing a comparison post between the Naked palette and the Naked 2 palette. A lot of people are put off buying the Naked 2 as they think it looks similar to the Naked palette but trust me, there is a difference. And you'll see in my comparison post!

I love this palette, do you? 
Thanks for reading!

  4. Can't wait to read your comparison cuz I am not sure if want it or not because i have the other one, xx

  5. I can't wait to see the comparison too. I have neither palette and not sure which to go for. I found your pictures very clear to look at where as some of the promo ones its hard to tell what the colours are like. I found the swatch pic most useful.

  6. I've just purchased this! Im so excited for it to come haha, although it feels like it hasn't been that long since I've brought my other one! I love it so much though xx
