Finally received my NAKED2 Palette by Urban Decay! Since it's release in Early Dec. 2011 I've been trying to get my hands on it! The very day It was released I raced down to my near by Sephora. When I rushed in to buy it... it wasn't there. The Makeup Stylist told me that Canada wasn't going to selling it till Spring!!! WHAT??? I was so upset! So I took it as a sign that I should wait b/c I already have the 1st one and I have way too much Makeup. so I thought to myself, "Just wait for the Canadian debut of this palette". Well, about a month went by & I couldn't take it anymore! I needed... I needed... I needed it!!! So onto Sephora.com I went! All excited that I just purchased the palette I thought to myself, "all I had to do was wait another two weeks"! No problem I waited this long! After a week I check my e-mail where Sephora had informed me that NAKED2 was sold out!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH... WHAT??? So back to the big bad net I went where I purchased it from eBay!!! Alright now it's on it way :) The very next Morning I went to the Mall & decided to check out Sephora. What did I find there? Urban Decay NAKED2 was with a halo of light around it. WHAT??? Well, it came early and I was day late (already buying it from eBay the night before). If you follow me on Twitter I wrote ASAP how Sad & Upset I was over my whole ordeal. I know, I know, I know #MakeupJunkieProblems. So without any ruther delay here are my thoughs, swatches and video on

With the First palette you got a mini potion primer and dual ended 24/7 eye pencil in Zero & Whiskey! I love getting the the eye liner b/c they are my favorite and it was such a value to receive it with the palette itself! The package is nice but not strong either for me. It's made out of cardboard and velvet. It can get banged up some and the velvet gets dirty. There is are only magnetics that hold the palette closed which could lead to problems... it could easily open and get ruined.
Right off this palette is on the warmer and has more shimmer colours in it. There are two matte colours, Naked & Buck. Which are beautiful for the crease or blending out colour.
|Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar|
|Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Dark Horse|
|Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal|
With the Second palette you get a mini Lip Junkie gloss in Naked and dual ended eye shadow brush (stiff flat brush & a fluffy dome brush)! I do have to say that its not the greatest brush & I'll use it for different products other then shadows. I LOVE the gloss!!! It's a sheer subtle rose colour and it looks beautiful on! It also has a yummy minty smell and taste to it! The package is amazing and very strong and durable which I love! It's made out of steel/tin and looks so chic to me. It snaps and locks to together very tight which is a load off my mind b/c I know that if I drop this bad boy it will probably survive.
There are three matte shadows in a nice colour range from nude to mid tone brown all the way to black! The palette is cooler then the NAKED. I seem to be drawn to more of these colours then the first. They did Repeat one colour, Half Baked... I would of rather have a new color in the palette but it is a beautiful golden shadow.
|Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper|
|Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol|
|Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout|
I love both palette's but I know your wondering "Which one do I like best?" I would have to say NAKED2 wins the price in my option! Although I couldn't live with out the original. maybe it's b/c it new or the fact that i do have more favorites in this palette. I am very happy with this palette and this is a must have for any Makeup Junkie!!! I tip my hat to you, Urban Decay for doing it again! Comment below and let me know what you thought of the new palette and let me know which one was your favorite!
