My Thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

The Naked 2 palette was launched last year. A lot of beauty bloggers were excited about it. I wasn’t. One Naked is enough for me. This was not a very popular item in Hyphen also and so I got one palette.

The shades are very close to the original Naked. The quality of the eye shadows is excellent though as expected from Urban Decay.

I love some of the colors like Foxy, Tease and Pistol. I also love the hard case. I like this better than the dirt magnet that is the original Naked.

What I really love about this palette is the brush. I don’t like the fact that it’s dual ended as it’s hard to store. I would like to include this brush in my brush holder but that will just ruin the other end. It’s a really nice blending brush. I also sometimes use it to apply color and it does not disappoint.

Overall, I can’t say that this is better than the original Naked. They both have neutrals and smokey shadows. The main differences are the casing and the brushes. I got the old Naked palette so I got the eye liner with it which I’m very happy about. It’s a tie for me. Now will I get the Naked Basics? Absolutely not! I’m not a huge fan of neutrals. We might have it available at Hyphen though.

Here is a quickie look I made using the Naked 2:
