I have the new Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette!! Haul & First Impressions

Hey Everyone!

If Urban Decay had a football game, I would be one of those fans wrapped up in Urban Decay scarves and hoodies cheering through a purple megaphone on the sidelines. You can pretty much tell from most of my tutorials that I love Urban Decay. Their eye-shadows are amazing – soft, ridiculously pigmented and who doesn’t love their very many palettes.

So when Urban Decay contacted me from California about a special campaign to launch their Urban Decay Naked2 Palette (the 2nd edition of the very popular almost cult product – the Urban Decay Naked Palette), I was more than overjoyed! It’s been a month since I received it in the mail so let’s see what’s in the box, shall we? I couldn’t tell anyone until Dec. 2nd, but today is December 2nd so yay!

Thank you for the special note, Kat! I love the purple confetti – totally Urban Decay.

I love opening boxes of surprises and there it is! The new Urban Decay Naked2 Palette!!

As you can see, it differs from the first Naked Palette mainly because it’s in a tin box rather than a felt box.

The Naked2 Palette also comes with a small sized lip junkie lip gloss, but overall despite the materials in the packaging, it’s pretty much a very similar size and shape

I have to say that the packaging of Naked2 is seriously sturdy. When you close it, it even clicks into place. It’s heavier than the first Naked Palette but overall a pretty good change. Think much more heavy duty.

There wasn’t a drastic difference in the colors. I think overall, Urban Decay provided a much lighter color palette than the previous with a mix of matte and shimmer shades. I can’t complain though, all of them are absolutely beautiful.

I absolutely love Snakebite which is a gorgeous frost brown with a gray undertone and tease which is a matte gray plum. You do see some familiar faces like Half-Baked again which is a stunning gold and must-have in any neutral palette.

As for the darker colors, YDK is absolutely gorgeous and so is Pistol. I’m looking forward to creating more metallic silver looks for the new year with this. I can’t wait to go tutorial crazy. They also included a standard matte black in blackout. 

When swatched, the colors do appear darker than in the pan which means that the shadows are layer-able. Even though it might look as if Urban Decay is providing a lighter palette, that might not be necessarily true after seeing the swatches!

The Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette also comes with a two sided brush which is really all you need – a paddle and blending brush. This is really handy for travelling. Unlike most in-house brushes, these brushes are amazingly soft and have a great quality to them, making this palette really handy for travel. I could essentially bring this along and not have to bring any other eye-shadow brushes or shadows when I go on holiday!

Besides brushes, Urban Decay decided to leave out an extra UDPP and opt for a lip gloss that goes great with the looks you’ll make with the Naked 2 Palette. It’s a Lip Junkie in a beautiful pink coral.

A beautiful neutral, lip plumping lip gloss. It’s super smooth, totally expected.

So there we have it! A few first impressions of the brand new Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Thank you so much Urban Decay for giving me the opportunity to look at it before anyone can even buy it and being part of your wonderful campaign! Overall, this palette is amazing. I’m not sure if it’s a must-have if you already have the first palette but if you are really looking for some really beautiful neutral shades like Snakebite and YDK, it’s pretty much a great pick. Plus, you can just see how soft and blendable those shadows are from the swatches. I’m super excited to give these a spin in the tutorial department so look forward to it!

This is me infront of Flinders Station in Melbourne with the Naked2 Palette! Urban Decay wanted me to take a picture of my new bff infront of a well-known landmark in the country I was currently in. They’re going to put me on the UD website soon!

Hope you enjoyed and if you have any questions, let me know in the comments section below!

Much Love,
Roseanne

      I’m not sure if there’s any international providers at the moment as it just came out today!

  • Dee

    If only the older one had packaging like this. These colors are much more up my alley.

    i am soooo jealous right now! UD isn’t available here in the Philippines unless you order it online which is triple the price! i’m still waiting for my aunt to buy me the Naked palette in the US and then this one comes along! i’m so confused! :(

  • Amanda

    which one do you prefer? the first or second naked palette?

    • roseannetangrs (author)

      I haven’t made up my mind yet, I really do like both! I’ll make a review/comparison though!

    who won your naked giveaway?

      It’s on the side corner, Tiffany Zhao!

  • Joyeeta

    Hey Roseanne,

    I don’t have the first Naked palette and I have, like, NO eye shadows because I’m more of a bold lip girl if the occasion calls for it rather than an eye make up girl. But I thought it was about time I invested in a good palette and all the reviews online are just confusing me!

    For someone like me who has warm medium to dark “Indian brown” skin colour with yellow undertones, would you recommend Naked 1 or 2?

    I hope you can help me out!

    Thank you so much :)

    • roseannetangrs (author)

      Hi Joyeeta! Depends on what sort of color range you like. The Naked 2 palette offers a lighter color range than the darker Naked 1 palette. I personally like using the Naked 2 palette because it has more wearable colors that are less shimmery than the Naked 1. If you like shimmer + darker colors, go for naked 1 :)

  • roui

    Hey rose, I want to purchase the Naked 2 palette and the first one but im not sure which one to go for. Im also thinking of buying both of them but at the same time i think it’s too much money to waste. Any suggestions??

    • roseannetangrs (author)

      Naked 2 for sure! It’s much more versatile :)
