As most beauty bloggers know, the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette has been out for a few months. So today I bring you my thoughts about this palette. To read my Naked Basics Review click here

Appearance

 

 

 

- Hard rubberized case that snaps together

- Large mirror

- Small sized palette with six full sized shadows

 

- Great for travel or makeup bag

- No brush included

 

Swatches left to right:
Skimp, Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, and Undone

My Thoughts 

Honestly I'm so glad I changed my mind about purchasing this palette because I really like the colors. I reach for this palette more than I use my Naked Basics Palette. I had my reservations about buying this palette because I was saying to myself "It looks so similar to the first Naked Basics." Now that I own both, I see they're different. Even though the first edition is great, I find that this one seems more natural which I really like. The colors blend really well and fallout is moderate. I like to keep this palette in my makeup bag especially if I've created a natural makeup look for the day. I don't think it's necessary to have both, unless you're like me and really love Urban Decay Eyeshadows. If I had to choose one it would be the Naked Basics 2.


Do you own the Naked Basics and/or Naked Basics 2 Palette(s)? 


Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I'm glad you like this Pilar! I haven't used mine in a while and now I want to after seeing your post haha! I do agree this one looks more natural probably because the colors are softer!

Pilar said...

Thanks Jackie!

Pilar said...

Thanks Ashley! To think I was going to skip buying this palette! Like I mentioned I'm so glad I changed my mind! I agree the colors are softer in this palette. I use this one more than I used the original Naked Basics!

From what I have seen, I like the colors in the Naked Basics 2 more than the first one, as well. The colors look great on you!

Pilar said...

Thank you Lauren! The colors in this palette are more neutral and softer than the first edition. I like this palette better too!

I've been thinking about a Naked basics and I think this one is prettier in my opinion, or at least has colors I would use more. Looks awesome on you!

Marie said...

Nice review! I like the Naked Basics Palette 2 better than the Naked Basics Palette. Love the makeup look!

Pilar said...

Thanks Margo! I feel the colors in this palette are more appealing than the first palette. Both are nice, but I like the Naked Basics 2 Palette better!

Pilar said...

Thank you! Me too! I think Urban Decay got it right when they launched this palette!

Oh I love the Nakeds. I am currently using the original Naked palette, but I so want to get the Naked 2 palette. It is cooler.

I own all the Naked palettes and didn't buy these, because I thought they were a condensed version of the original. LOL Glad you told me they were different! I love neutrals. Looks great on you Pilar!

All the Naked palettes are pretty good! I never can decide which one I like the best. The Naked 2 palette is cooler and the colors are gorgeous for anytime of year, but especially during the colder months!

Pilar said...

Thank you Kim! I thought the exact same thing last year before I purchased the first Naked Basics Palette. They're different though which is good because I don't really like buying a constant repeat of eyeshadows lol!

Beth said...

This is a such a wonderful palette!

Pilar said...

Yes it is!
