Urban Decay Naked 2 review TheFuss.co.ukAfter 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 – matte, 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 comes with shades that create the perfect neutral eye makeup, with more natural tones compared with the first Naked palette.

The case is even better than the first one too, it’s a lot more sturdy compared to the first Naked palette. It's metal for one, and it has a snap lock top which means it won’t fall open while in transit like the original palette did. Much like a pencil tin, the outer packaging is a rectangular tin, with  It also has a big 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:


The perfect base colour, this is a cream eyeshadow that has a matte finish. It's a shade to swipe all over your lids to help even things out and create the perfect base for your eye look.

Foxy is not a new colour for Urban Decay, it used to be in individual pot form however it is no longer available.

Half Baked

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 adds a gorgeous glowing and shimmery effect to your eyes.


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 that comes with really small glitter in a silver shade. 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.


Make more of an effect with Snakebite, a dark bronze shade that has a slight shimmer. This looks amazing on its own or worked in with other colours.


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 has a slight plummy tone, and would be great for the crease, or run under eye for a smokey look.


The matte black shade that is packed with pigmentation and doesn't fall everywhere. It's the shadow you'll go for everytime you want an impactful smokey eye look.

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
