Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review and Swatches

December 10, 2011

Combining 12 neutral shadows with a dual-ended shadow/crease brush and lip gloss, Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette is a great sequel to the original Naked palette.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Unlike Naked 1, Naked 2 comes in a taupe metal case that shuts tight with a hinge. The case measures 8 inches by 2 3/4 inches, which is the same size as Naked 1.

For the eyeshadows, we have 3 matte and 9 shimmery/metallic colors. Most applied smoothly with great pigmentation, except the mattes, which required a bit of layering.

Foxy is a creamy light yellow with matte finish. It is a repromote and not available individually. It barely shows up on my NC30 skin and would most likely work as a base color for light to medium skintones.
Half Baked is a shimmery golden copper from the permanent line and a repeat from the original Naked palette.
Bootycall is a new, shimmery light beige. It is a warmer version of Virgin from Naked and similar to MAC Shroom.
Chopper is metallic copper with very fine silver glitter. It is an existing shade and a warmer, orange version of Sidecar from Naked 1.
Tease is a creamy pale brown with matte finish. It is a new color and similar to Buck from Naked 1, only more cool-toned.
Snakebite is a new, metallic dark bronze. It looks like a mixture of Smog and Darkhorse from Naked 1.
Suspect is a shimmery light golden beige that has been discontinued.
Pistol is a shimmery light gray-brown. It is a new color and reminds me of MAC Smoke & Diamonds.
Verve is a frosty pink-tinted gray-white. It was in the Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette and is not available individually.
YDK is a metallic cool bronze from the permanent line.
Busted a shimmery cool dark brown color that is new.
Blackout is an intense matte black. It is not available individually but has appeared in the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette.

Besides the shadows, there is a a travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked and a double-ended Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush. Personally, I don’t care much for the gloss. While it did go on non-sticky with a minty smelly, it showed up almost clear with very tiny shimmer. The eyeshadow brush though, was awesome. It is full-sized and worked perfectly with the shadows.

Overall, Naked 2 is a great buy. The shades are wearable with good quality and the value is just unbeatable (you pay $50 for $234 worth of products). If you have the original Naked palette, I’d suggest you check this out before you purchase. Some of the colors are similar but not completely substitutable. See the comparison here!

    Wow. I’ve been looking, lusting, thinking, obsessing, debating, and still not sure which Naked palette to buy since I’m new to makeup. I wanted to buy a palette that I would actually use and not sit in a corner collecting dust somewhere. Your review is awesome but what sold me was your makeup tutorial on one of your face of the days tutorial using the Naked 2…you look great! This is probably going to be the only makeup palette I will buy. It’s a bit expensive for $50, so I hope that it would be worth it! Thank you for sharing.
