urban decay naked2 palette

urban decay naked2 palette: debenhams (£36)

So here it is! The eyeshadows everyone and their cat has been waiting for - the Urban Decay Naked2 palette. The launch caused a lot of fuss and confusion on the Debenhams Beauty Club Facebook page and then later on Twitter which was quite funny (#prayforkelly ended up trending #1 in the UK, I was the top tweet at one point, sulksulksulk).

I don't have the oh-so-popular first Naked palette, I don't know what made me not buy it but I've always liked the look of it. I guess it was the packaging, I've seen various reviews mentioning that it attracts all kinds of fluff so was a bit put off. When the new one was announced though I couldn't resist and have been eagerly awaiting its release.

My first impressions upon arrival were how lovely and sleek the packaging is. Portable with a lovely big mirror, and closes properly unlike the first palette which can apparently come open in transit. At the same time the Naked2 is easy to open so no wrestling with the tin! Also inside there is a two-ended brush which isn't the softest I've ever felt but it's cruelty free which is always a good thing! I don't think it would be my first choice of brush though.

Now onto the main attraction - the shades! The colours (from left to right, obviously) are as follows: Foxy (cream bisque with matte finish), Half Baked (golden-bronze with shimmering finish), Bootycall (shimmering cork), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver microglitter), Tease (creamy pale brown with matte finish), Snakebite (dark bronze shimmer with metallic base), Suspect (pale golden beige with shimmering finish), Pistol (light gray-brown with shimmering finish), Verve (oyster with shimmering finish), YDK (cool bronze shimmer with metallic base), Busted (deep brown with shimmering finish) and last but not least, Blackout (blackest black with matte finish).

I think I have my favourites already, which are Bootycall - an amazing shimmery base colour, and a brand new shade, Chopper - lovely shimmery copper, the type of shade I am always drawn to, and YDK - a shimmery golden bronze. It's nice to have a black in there too for on the go to use as an eyeliner or just define the roots of your lashes a bit.

I found it quite strange that the new palette comes with a lip product rather than a miniature Primer Potion like the old palette. Then again the shade name is 'Naked' so it fits. It's a Lip Junkie gloss which is thick but not sticky, and 'cools and plumps' while also tasting like wedding mints for fresh breath - don't mind if I do!

Will you be getting the Naked2 palette? If not, why not? Do you have the first one? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. I have the first one and love it. I think if you have the first one you don't need the second one because they are so similar. I prefer the packaging of the first one because it looks much smaller and easier to store in my ridiculous drawer of makeup. Not a big fan on tins...

    Pistol looks gorgeous though! Good review :-) xxx

  2. Its so pretty! I have the first palette so really don't need this but I almost can't help but be attracted to it like a magpie haha so may end up accidentally putting it in my shopping basket.

  3. I haven't got either but I think I would prefer the Naked2 palette. Mainly because it has more matte shades. If its still around when I have more money I might get it, you can never have enough neutral eye shadows :) x

  4. Lovely review :)
    I love the look of the shades, the colours are amazing. I definitely think I'll be buying the Naked 2, I just wish they'd have included an Eyeshadow Primer Potion instead of a lipgloss though...

  7. Excellent reciew :) I love the look of this palette, I have the first one and have got into a rut of only using two colours - I probably don't need this one as the colours are really similair but after reading your review I am dying for it now, I'll probably crack and get it :) The colours just look too amazing!

  8. the colours look absolutely gorgeous but it's just quite pricey! and the colours look too small, I know I'd favour one or two and end up using them all up and then abandoning other colours.
    also I would way prefer the primer over a lipgloss too...so i'm undecided!

  9. YDK and Suspect look so lovely. I do think the primer potion which comes with the first one is more useful though, shame they changed that aspect
    It would be mine

  10. I love how they've printed the names on the palette. It looks very stylish!

  11. Love the colours so much, I don't have the first one but I think I need to get this at some point! x

  12. I love the colours on this one, they are really similar to the first one; some (like 'half-baked') even make a double appearence.

    They both seem great but I think you only really need one. I personally have a slightly stronger preference to the second one though.

    Thanks for sharing!

  14. I have the first one and really love it, not sure if I'd bother buying Naked2 because the shades seem really similar. The packaging seems a little more reliable to stay shut but looks bulkier than the first pallet.

  15. I've not got the first one, I've really started to get into neutral shadows again so I am tempted by this but the lipgloss would go to waste on me! A primer potion would have been a much better choice. Love the packaging though, I hate anything that feels like velvet so I would have hated the other one!

  18. Seen a lot of reviews of this palette and look like such gorgeous shades!

    Totally weird that it comes with a lipgloss though.

  19. I want I want! looks amazing, ty for swatches x

  20. The colours are lush and would defiantly get used with me being a neutral girl but there is just as good brands for a much cheaper price. The price is ridiculous.

  21. Absolutely adore the first palette by naked and will definitely be buying this one! (:

    I wish there was another primer with this one the though, the concept of having a lipgloss is a bit out of character, considering that it is an eye makeup product.

    All in all, I'm very excited!

  22. I so badly wanted the first one but couldn't part with the money! I want this one too but barely ever wear eyeshadow so will need to invest in a good eye primer also!
    Love the packaging :)

  29. I have the Naked 1 and I really recommend it, I use it daily!
    One thing I would say is is that the Naked 2 has more shades that can be used together whereas the Naked1 has really stunning shades but they can't always be paired up with another in the palette.

  30. This is just a gorgeous palette. I have the original palette and I adore it, but at the moment I can't afford this thanks to my student budget and house deposits :( boo xx

  31. I dunno about these Naked palettes, there's so much hype it makes me almost not want to like them! I may invest in one if I catch them for the right price!

  32. It looks amazing. Unfortunately I can't get them in my country :/ xxx

  33. this one actually appeals to me more than the first one did too. i think its cos its got warmer tones or something. the blues in the last one put me off. might actually buy this one! nice review emma xo

    ReplyDelete
  34. I gave into the hype and bought it on the night of the launch haha! I vowed I wouldn't as I don't really use my Naked palette X

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've been meaning to get my hands on this, just trying to figure out if it's worth it or not, as I've been getting lots of mixed reviews!

  36. It looks gorgeous but i'd honestly only wear two of the shades, pistol and verve, because I don't like coppery browns on myself. I think a lot of people will buy it just to say they have it, but at £36 it's very expensive. Jenny xx

  37. I ordered from Debenhams online store on Monday as well but it hasn't arrive yet. Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I already have the first one, so didn't see the point in buying this one too. I much prefer the first one's packaging too.
    I do think the colours in this are amazing though, and if I didn't have the first one, I would get this :)

  40. I don't have the first palette and I don't know why either because Urban Decay is one of my favourite brands (if not my absolute favourite) brand for my eye makeup. These shades are literally like my dream palette so I think I have something to ask for for my birthday!

  41. I love all the colours, I didn't get Naked 1 either but I think I definitely might get no.2!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i have the first one but after this post, i definitely think i'll be getting this second one too! X

    ReplyDelete
  43. I used to wear urban decay when I was a young teen! Will have to re-consider the brand now I've seen this.
