Review: Naked2 Palette

Hello beauties! 

You know how I (and everyone) is obsessed with Urban Decay Naked Palette. If you read my "Naked Rush" tutorial, you know the story how I got my palette. Click here if you haven't seen it. 

Well.. Urban Decay once again surprised me with its "Naked2" Palette! Here is the product descriptions from its website:

Naked2 has 12 pigment-rich, taupe and greige neutral eyeshadows, including FIVE NEW shades. Our palette proves once again, neutral is anything but boring, (and is downright sexy when worn Naked). Feast your eyes on our shades ranging from pale to deep, matte to sparkly. This collection lets you achieve lots of neutral looks, smoky dramatic eyes, and everything in between. Let's just say there's a whole new way to get Naked! The case has an art-school inspired look with hinged lid - taupe metal with embossed chocolate brown artwork. It's smooth, modern and cool to the touch - a real tactile experience. Plus, our palette also features a travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked, AND a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush (available only in this palette).

Like it has said, it includes 12 eyeshadows, a lipgloss, and a shadow/crease brush. Lets talk about the main actor here, the eyeshadows (left to right). 

Foxy is a yellow-based eyeshadow. When I swatched it into my hand, seriously I can't see the color! I swatched it multiple times, and what I got was a hint of yellow nude color (you'll see in the picture later). In other words, this eyeshadow matches my skin tone, and will be the highlight color. 

 Half Baked is my favorite gold color! It is not too shimmer, has a satin finish, and also is available in previous Naked palette. 

Bootycall is also a great highlight color. It is similar to Virgin, from the previous Naked palette. 

Chopper is a permanent color from Urban Decay, it is also available in Ammo Palette. It is a copper color, with a shimmer-satin finish. 

Tease is probably going to be my favorite color. First, because it is a matte finish (I love matte eyeshadow). Matte finish eyeshadows are great to achieve a smokey eye. Second, because the color is not boring! It is a mixture of grey, taupe, and purple. How pretty!!

Snakebite is similar to Smog on the previous Naked palette. It is a satin dark brown. Pretty, though.

Suspect is pretty hard to describe. It is a brown-goldish color. It is similar to Woodwinked or Tempting from MAC. 

Pistol is probably going to be my second favorite. Again, it is because the color is not boring. It is a gray smoke, with a hint of silver and brown. It has a satin finish, not too shimmery. This is great for a night look! 

Verve is kind of like Pistol, but with a lighter color. It has more silver in it. 

YDK is a brown purplish color. It is really similar with Toasted from the previous Naked palette. 

Busted is... I feel it is exactly the same as Hustle of the previous Naked palette. I swatched it, and I could not tell the difference. It is a burgundy, deep brown color. 

Blackout is just simply a matte black. 

My thoughts on the eyeshadows: Well, I love it. However, I do not why I was more excited when the first Naked palette released. I was really excited too when I got my Naked2, but I found out there are some similar colors compared to Naked palette. So, I was kind of disappointed for that. But overall, I love all the eyeshadows. You can create so many looks from day to night, and they are all high pigmented colors.. yes it is worth it. 

It came with a mini travel size of Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Naked. It is a pink sheer lipgloss. Not a fan though. But I like the way it changes lipgloss from the primer potion.

I love how they provide a double-ended shadow/crease brush. Its brushes are a high-quality ones. So, I think it is so much better than just an eyeliner.

Overall, I honestly love the original Naked palette more. It has more matte colors, and more variations. The Naked2 is good too, but I feel the colors are so similar with the original palette. It is $50, and it is always sold out everytime it gets back in stock. So you need to sign up to get notified from them when it is back in stock. Click here to sign up

If you a beauty addict like me, yes I think you need to include this palette in your collection. 

So, I hope this review is helpful for you all! Will you grab one? Let me know in the comment below!
