The Naked 2

I wasn't going to buy this... really I wasn't. 

I much prefer the packaging of this to the Naked 1, the tin is so much easier to keep clean and the big mirror inside is so handy.

The shadow's are much more neutral and copper toned, which suits my pale skin much more than the 1.

The shadows are pigmented, creamy and easy to blend, so using them is incredibly easy. I also love the brush it comes with. One end is perfect for packing on the colour and the other is brilliant at blending, especially in the crease, as it's the perfect size for me.

My only niggle is the layout of the shadows - i would prefer if it went from light to dark, but that's hardly a major issue. I think £36 is a bit steep too, I paid £32 during a flash sale, which is still pretty steep. But i am very glad that i have it in my collection, and have reached for it every day, so i can justify the price.

Have a little play with it next time you're in store,
& if you're on the fence, just buy it. . I wish i had sooner!

I've been on the fence for a little while as I use the NP1 everyday and wondered if I needed another but I think I will drop a few hints to the boy as he's bought me most of my urban decay goodies!

Lovely review ! Not sure I could justify the price at the moment though ! xx

I really want the Naked 2 palette, I keep saying to myself 'when the first one runs out!' but it's tricky!

I agree about the packaging being better than that of the Naked 1; my Naked 1 palette always gets dusty and the writing on the lid is slightly chipped. Still, I have so many neutral eyeshadows already that I'll have to forget about this new edition :).

Oooh I've been umming and ahhing over getting this for ages as I already have Naked 1 so not sure I can justify it as it's so expensive! It looks gorge though! xx

Ive had this since it was released and only used it a couple of times! Really should use it on a daily basis as the colours are gorgeous. Great post:)

Ahhh, so tempting. I've been trying to restrain myself from buying this for ages now! It is really pricey, but Urban Decay shadows are brilliant quality.

I really like the packaging of naked 2 as well, though the tin does make it much heavier than the original naked... either way they're both great products!
