Naked 2 Palette

Here it is finally! Pook's review of the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I would like to start off by saying that the Naked Palette is my go-to palette for when I want something tried and true, I don't have the creativity to come up with a new look, or I am rushed for time. It is my "security blanket", my "favorite-pair-of-jeans-that-are-just-about-to-fall-apart". That being said, the Naked 2 Palette is a great addition to the original. To me, the colors in the palette are cooler than the original and texture does not feel AS creamy but the colors are still extremely long-wearing especially when paired with Urban Decay Primer Potion and very pigmented.

When it comes to the overall packaging of the palette I much prefer the Naked 2 to the original. The outer packaging is a hard plastic that I find to be much easier to maintain than the velvety packaging of the original Naked Palette. When you open the lid there is a mirror on the top portion and the shadows in the bottom. The palette also came with a dual ended brush (one end is a large fluffy brush good for blending and the other is a flat shader brush used for patting on color to the eyelid). There are little catches in the palette that snap closed when you close the palette, something else that the original does not have. All in all, the packaging of this palette makes it much more convenient to travel with or even simply to store.

Half-Baked is the one shadow that is in both palettes. Chopper is in other Urban Decay Palettes but the rest of the shadows are new to me. My favorites from this palette are YDK (shimmery bronze) and Tease (matte taupe). Both are eyeshadows that Urban Decay now sells as singles so it is nice to know that when I hit pan I won't have to buy the entire palette over again. 
The Naked 2 Palette is a great buy at $50 for 12 eyeshadows. You can buy it from urbandecay.com, Sephora, or Ulta. I recommend this palette to anybody who loves makeup and especially for women who work in offices. The eyeshadows can be used for dramatic and every day work looks.
