After the success of the first Urban Decay Naked palette, they were of course going to bring out a second, and now a third, a smoky line, and a line of Basic palettes too. But we have to admit, the Naked 2 palette holds a strong place in our beauty stash, mainly because of its versatility and wearability.
The Naked 2 palette houses 12 neutral eyeshadows in a variety of finishes – matter, shimmer and micro-glitter – five shades of which are brand new, and it comes with a handy mirror inside the compact and a custom double-ended and full size shadow/crease brush.
Naked 2 is packed with even more taupe-hued neutrals, including a gorgeous greyish-brown, a glittery copper and Urban Decay’s blackest black.
The case has an art-school inspired look with hinged lid taupe metal with embossed chocolate brown artwork. It’s smooth, modern and cool to the touch, it’s also a lot more sturdy compared to the first Naked palette. Much like a pencil tin, the outer packaging is a rectangular tin, with a snap lock top which means it won’t fall open while in transit like the original palette did. It also has a humongous mirror – they have really tried to make this palette as travel friendly as they can.
Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow shades
Not only are you graced with 12 eyeshadows in the Naked 2 palette, but it also comes with a Good Karma Shadow/Crease brush. Here’s the eyeshadow shades included:
Beautify those lids with this cream bisque eyeshadow with a matte finish. Foxy is not a new colour for Urban Decay, it used to be in individual pot form however it is no longer available. It creates the perfect base for any eyeshadow look.
Half Baked is the only repeated colour in this palette as it was also featured in the original Naked palette, it’s not surprising it has made an appearance in this palette, because it was so loved in the first. It’s a golden-bronze shadow that will add a shimmery finish to your lids.
An exclusive shade to the palette, it makes your eyes sparkle. A beautiful shimmery cork eyeshadow, it’s another great base colour.
A copper shimmer with a fine silver micro-glitter, this shadow definitely has the wow factor. Chopper has featured in palettes before and is available individually.
A creamy pale brown with a matte finish and slight purple undertones, this will be a great crease colour for green eyed ladies, and it’s an exclusive shade to this palette.
Get your eyelids dazzling with this dark bronze shimmer eyeshadow with a metallic base.
A pale golden beige eyeshadow that has a shimmer finish, we think it’s a darker version of MAC All that Glitters.
The greyish-brown eyeshadow has a shimmery finish, it’s a new shade from Urban Decay and we can’t think of anything else like it. It’s perfect worked into a smokey eye, or all over the lid with plenty of mascara for an easy-to-do evening look.
Verve is a pretty oyster pearl shade with a high shine finish.
This is one of Urban Decay’s best selling shades in individual pot form and it’s easy to see why – an easy-to-wear cool bronze shimmer.
A new, exclusive shade to the Naked 2 palette, Busted is a deep brown eyeshadow with a shimmery finish. It has a slight plummy tone, and would be great for the crease, or run under eye for a smokey look.
The blackest of the black eyeshadow with a matte finish, it has really good pigmentation and isn’t too powdery.
Pigmented shadows, wide range of neutral shades, long-lasting, easy to blend, soft and buttery formula,
You’ll most likely shun all other eyeshadow palettes once you have this in your collection
