I got this palette this christmas, having recieved the Naked 1 palette the year before. i must say that i do prefer the first Naked palette, but this is a great sequel.
all of the shades are pigmented and of good quality, and this price isnt bad for 12 shades. i do like the new packaging, its very sturdy and easy to clean. the only downside is that most of the shadows are medium in tone, i find that there are no contour/dark shades suitable for creating a 'smokey eye' which is my favourite look to wear.
also, i would rarely find myself using the double-ended brush it comes with, though it is a nice addition to the palette. the gloss (Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Naked) is very pretty, if a bit dark and not a colour i would choose for myself. its lovely over a nude lipstick.
overall i find this palette to be of good use, with my favourites being tease, suspect,pistol, busted and blackout. however, if i were to choose only one naked palette to recommend i would have to go for the the first one! hope this review helped.
Love it. I love UD eye shadows, but this is a great paletet!!!!!
Itīs all any woman need. Serious. I have too much make uo. But if I was to have one palette, that would be the one. Seriously.
The colors are beautifull and very chic!
Itīs worth every penny!!!!
This product is worth every penny. It has beautiful pigmented metallic colors. There are a couple matte shadows but most of them are shimmery. If you don't like shimmery eye shadows, don't buy this. I usually just wear one color all over my eye lids as an everyday look, so these colors are perfect for that. No need to reapply because the colors stay on all day. I would say the quality of the shadows are just as good as my mac eye shadows. For referent I have tan NC40 skin and these colors work so well with my skin tone.
Am I the only one who's not crazy about this palette? I don't use Foxy, Half Baked, Chopper, Snakebite, and YDK at all. They look horrible on me because if the overdone metallic effect. No matter how I try or how I mix they make me look 10 years older and tacky shiny. I am Asian so I am thinking these colours don't work for my eyelid shape.
What's left are oring neutrals I easily have better dupes of. MAC eyeshadows stay on longer and are easier to apply. These shadows are really soft.
The whole thing is heavy and bulky so I can't carry it around for touch ups either.
I absolutely adore this pallette! I ordered it online about 6 months ago and have been using it almost everyday since lol... I really love the more neutral shades in these pallettes but the shimmer keeps them from being too boring. Don't get me wrong, I love a nice matte neutral eye shadow every once in a while but I tend to lean more towards satin or shimmer finishes, just my preference. After having used this pallette so many times, I decided to check out the Naked 1. While in Sephora the other day, I compared the Naked 1 and Naked 2 side by side. Online they look pretty close and so I wasn't really excited about the shadows in Naked 1. But in person I was surprised at how much I liked The Naked 1 also! Even though they are similar, they are different enough that it's definitely worth having both! The only repeat shadow in both pallettes is a beautiful gold shadow called Half Baked. Half Baked is my Holy Grail gold shadow... It looks so pretty with a black winged eye liner and red lips. Very retro chic =) So I did end up buying the Naked 1 and I have been using it every day since! If I had to choose one though, I would have to say Naked 2 just because I've had it longer and I really prefer the sturdier packaging! But if you can afford it, I say get them both! Urban Decay makes wonderful eyeshadows, I'm officially a believer. Very pigmented and great color payoff! They blend wonderfully and really last me all day long when I use them in conjunction with the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion.
Alright, so I finally caved and bought this palette after owning the original Naked palette for almost a year, and I honestly don't regret it a bit! I love the improved packaging, it's much sturdier than the original with a larger mirror. And the colours are just to die for! Just like the original the shadows are highly pigmented, long lasting and apply beautifully. Love!!
Urban Decay eyeshadows never fail me, and this palette isn't an exception. As usual, the formulation is exceptional--smooth and crazy buttery! The pigmentation doesn't disappoint either, but not all the shades have maximum color pay-off. It shouldn't be a problem if you wear it on top of UDPP, though.
I'm pretty happy with the shade selection--unlike the original Naked palette, this time, they got the shades right in Naked 2. Loving the addition of black!
Below, I listed the shades with their color description and pigmentation level in addition to comparisons to the Naked palette and personal notes, when applicable. I marked my favorites with an asterisk (*).
From left to right:
-Foxy: Matte peachy cream (sheer pigmentation) (This only shows up when I pack it on and don't blend. Once I blend, it turns completely invisible on my NC35 skin! While deciding how to make use of this shade, I figured out that it makes for a great translucent matte, but VERY natural-looking, face powder. I hate the matte look, but this is an exception--it looks natural, but still matte!)
-Half Baked*: Shimmery light gold (excellent pigmentation) (repeat from Naked) (My all-time fave eyeshadow! It brightens my dark brown eyes in the most beautiful way!)
-Bootycall*: Ivory with frosty sheen (good pigmentation) (dupe for Naked's Virgin)
-Chopper: Glittery peach-champange (good pigmentation) (not as champagne as Naked's Sidecar)
-Tease*: Matte cool beige (excellent pigmentation) (Good for contouring)
-Snakebite: Shimmery warm chocolate (excellent pigmentation) (not as warm as Naked's Smog)
-Suspect: Shimmery beige (good pigmentation) (not as pink as Naked's Sidecar)
-Pistol: Shimmery medium gray (good pigmentation)
-Verve: Shimmery oyster pearl (great pigmentation)
-YDK: Shimmery pink-champagne with glitter (excellent pigmentation) (dupe for Naked's Sidecar; similar to Toasted)
-Busted*: Shimmery cool dark brown (good pigmentation) (dupe for Naked's Hustle)
-Blackout*: Matte black (excellent pigmentation)
In addition to these twelve shades, this palette also comes with a Good Karma eyeshadow brush, which is double-ended with a blending brush on one end and an eyeshadow brush on the other. The eyeshadow brush side doesn't pick up product that well. This brush is exclusive to this palette.
I prefer my MAC 239 and 217 brushes over this, but this brush isn't bad. Definitely worth keeping!
It also comes with a mini Lip Junkie in Naked, which is a non-sticky lipgloss in a shimmery rose shade. Its pigmentation is generally considered good, for a lipgloss.
I really like the packaging of Naked 2. It's a step up from Naked's packaging, in my opinion. It comes in a metal case with a full mirror (versus Naked's mini mirror). It's sturdy--I did a drop test and all eyeshadows were perfectly intact. Apparently it looks like a pencil case, according to my sister, who thought it was one when she first saw it.
Although this is purely an opinionated observation, the price point of this palette is just right, especially for Urban Decay. For $50, you get 12 highly pigmented eyeshadows with incredible quality and a heavenly formulation as well as a good quality double-ended brush and a mini lipgloss. I think that's well worth the price.
Would I repurchase? Yes, but I doubt I need to!
This is a great pallette, but it's NOT something you absolutely NEED!
Let me explain myself: with all the hype that's been going on within the beauty community(youtube+blogs) , i wouldn't want anyone who's on a budget, or a teenager with not much money , to think they absolutely NEED to save money and have this.Even though it is a great product, it's not something extrordinary!
I don't regret buying this at all! I love ALL the shades and you can achieve many looks with it (neutral eye, bronze, gold, silver,black,grey, dusty purple, warm or cool ...). Plus these are the only eyeshadows i'm ever gonna need while travelling-and such a great packaging for this purpose! The brush is decent.
On the negative side, if you already are a girl who loves neutrals and has a decent amount of neutral eyeshadows , you will already have dupes for these shades in your collection. They are NOT extremely unique!
Plus, i did experience fallout.They are the kind of eyeshadows with which , If you don't use a very soft brush and be very light-handed, you will "scratch" the surface- if you know what i'm talking about.Mac eyeshadows are better in quality!
To sum this up, if you have money to spare , or if you are just starting out your makeup collection and you need a neutral (mostly shimmery) pallette, then i totally recommend it!
But if you're on a budget, don't worry, you're not missing out on anything spectacular
Amazing! This is a collection of universally flattering (meaning all skin tones), neutral eyeshadows. I think UD really nailed it with the color selection in this palette. The options are endless with the color range and matte/shimmer choices. This is definitely my go-to for both day looks and evening looks. As for the quality, it is also top-notch, the shades are nicely pigmented, velvety smooth, blend-able, and have good lasting power. It comes in a nice metal package that seems as though it could take a beating(or a few times being dropped) and still protect the contents inside. I find the price to be a little steep, but the quality and amount of use I get out of it make it so worth it.
