Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette


What on my lips? MAC Snapdragon lipstick!

Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette*, £37
available from Debenhams

When it comes to these cult eyeshadow palettes from Urban Decay I think I may have done it all the wrong way round. I bypassed the original palette, was a little bit tempted by the Naked 2 offering but didn’t commit until the pretty Naked 3 palette was released. After purchasing the third release from this trilogy of neutral shadows and having used it almost every day since, I felt I needed to investigate its predecessors and Naked 2 was swiftly added to my collection.

The Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay offers a dozen pigment-rich eyeshadows ranging from taupes, beiges and golds to some dirtied-purples, greys and a strong black shade. It is an eclectic mix of neutrals with various finishes and intensities which certainly makes a neutral eyeshadow look anything but boring! The range of matte and sparkly shades means it is perfect for an understated day time look or a more shimmery, dramatic look for a night out on the town. My favourite shades for a quick everyday look lurk in the first half of the palette as you have everything you need to highlight and define with a mixture of high-shimmer and matte shadows with their trademark velvety texture and strong pigmentation I have grown to know and love from Urban Decay. For the above look I used  “Booty Call” all over my lids, in the corners of my eyes and along the brow bone to highlight and add a touch of luminosity. I then took “Chopper” and placed this in the inner half of my eyelid and then blended “Tease” into the outer half. I then finished with a touch of “Busted” in my crease and along my lower lash line. I love the versatility of the Naked 2 palette and it is perfect if you aren’t such a fan of the rose-gold and warmer pink shades that the Naked 3 palette has to offer.

    This is a really pretty look you created with the colours 🙂

    I just LOVE the Urban Decay palettes and I use them pretty much on a daily basis! I would say that my Naked 1 palette is the most used :)x

    NAKED2 is my favourite palette out of all of them. I'm going to upload a prom look using that palette tonight/tomorrow.

    I don't have any of the UD Naked palettes, but from what I can see from all the reviews out there is that the second one is my favourite. Think I'll treat myself soon!

    I was debating between getting the Naked one and Naked two palette and ended up with the Naked one, I really like it, might end up getting the second one too though, they're really lovely eyeshadows. I write a blog too so if you have the time to
    read it I would be really grateful

    I've been debating about buying this for months now but I think I need to complete my little Urban Decay Naked collection! That black shadow is my absolute favourite, it's so richly pigmented!

    I need this pallet, after seeing a few tutorials it seems like this pallet would be pretty universal 🙂 I can't wait to get a little more creative with my eye make up this spring/summer x

    I was really debating between the 3, but I ended up first going with #2! I love it, couldn't be happier :3

    I still have the original and use it daily! I really want Naked 3 🙂 That's my next beauty purchase I think x
