NAKED 2 by URBAN DECAY
I finally got my hands on the Naked 2 palette ($50). Too late on the ride you say? Well, at least I got on the ride! I was hesitant about it because I still had the original/first Naked palette and I had a lot left to use. But recently, I had hit pan on Half-baked, seriously the all-time most beautiful gold shimmer eyeshadow ever! Then, I went on a whole journey of considering several cream eyeshadows to try out. On my trip to Sephora today, I tried about four different brands of cream eyeshadows... all were just meh. Then, I hopped over to Urban Decay and took a good look at Naked 2. I realized that the palette had my much needed Half-baked and I also realized how beautiful the shades were. I took the liberty to swatching what I thought were the prettiest of them all, and whoa. Who needs cream eyeshadows when these powdered ones glide on smoother than cream, deliver better than paint, and blend like powder? Nuh-uh. I immediately picked this palette up. I didn't think any swatching was necessary for this blogpost because I mean come on, who hasn't seen tons of reviews on this palette already?
My favorite shades so far are (all) YDK, Bootycall, Chopper, Pistol, Busted, Blackout... hmm... I think I'm mentioning them all. I really do like them all. I love that the black shade is matte. Oh, and the brush! If you've watched my last favorites (of 2012) video, you'll see that I use a double-ended Jemma Kidd brush for my Naked 1 palette. It fits perfectly into the palette too. I was more than pleased to see their own fine double-ended brush already given in the palette. One side is a denser kind, and the other side is a fluffy one good for buffing and blending! It also comes with a nude colored lip gloss that I find neutral and nice, a good little bonus for the whole package!
