Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

I received the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette for my birthday and I was delighted when I opened it up and found out what it was. I had heard so many amazing things about this eyeshadow palette before and I could instantly tell that I was going to get so much use out of this palette.

The Naked 2 palette has mostly neutral, very wearable shades. The price of this palette is £39.50 in most shops which is expensive but in my opinion this palette is worth the money because you get twelve shades all of which are great quality and great colours plus you will be able to use this palette for so many looks.

My first impressions of the palette were that I knew straight away that I would use every single colour in the palette lots. I could tell just by looking at it that it was very versatile which has proven to be true as I would definitely say that this is my most versatile Urban Decay palette. I loved the packaging because it looked simple yet pretty and it felt nice and sturdy and good quality and I loved how it had a nice big mirror inside because they do usually come in handy. To begin with I was not sure how much I was going to love the tapered blending side of the brush but it has actually came in super useful for loads of eyeshadow looks and I really love it now. I also really liked how there is a mixture of shimmery shades, a couple of sparkly micro-glitter shades and of course a few matte shades too.

On my first use I think that I used ‘foxy’ as a base, ‘YDK’ on my eyelids with a bit of ‘verve’ in the centre of my eyelids and on the inner corner and on my brow bone and from what I can remember I used ‘tease’ in my crease. I thought the shades had just the right amount of pigmentation and were very blendable. I used my fingers to apply the shades that I used on my eyelids due to the fact that in general, I feel like this gives me the maximum amount of pigmentation. I also loved both ends of the brushes, the blending side blends out eyeshadow well whilst still keeping it precise and the flat side is great for applying lid colours.

As I have already mentioned, I would say that this is without a doubt my most versatile Urban Decay palette. You can easily create daytime looks, night time looks, natural looks and so much more with this palette which is honestly amazing. The only slightly negative thing that I would say about this palette is that it might benefit from having a couple of more matte shades but that is just me being very picky. Naked 2¬†would also be really good if you don’t own very many eyeshadow palettes or if you are looking to invest in a good, staple first eyeshadow palette.

Overall, I think that the Urban Decay Naked 2 is an incredible palette that I would definitely reccomend to anyone who is considering buying it.
