I splurged over Christmas break on the makeup palette I had been wanting for a long time – Naked2 from Urban Decay. Part of their incredibly popular Naked line, this palette features neutral taupe, gold and black in a variety of shades. Some are shiny, while others are matte, and mixed together, the possibilities are truly endless.
At $54, this is not a cheap makeup palette. That’s why I did my research before selecting the Naked2. While I loved the blues in the original Naked palette and the rose golds in Naked3, I felt the cool neutrals in Naked2 would suit my skin tone and blue eyes better.
I love this palette. The shades vary between matte and more shiny colors, but they can all be mixed together to make so many looks. I love using the lighter shades along my eyebrows and the darker ones on the crease right below my brow bone. I tried doing some close-up pics showing the looks I had made with this palette, but the pics didn’t turn out. I have been wearing colors from the Naked2 palette almost every day though, including in several past outfit photos.
The only downside (besides the price) is the size of this palette – it’s quite big, and I can’t imagine it would travel well if you were pressed for space.
If the price and size are too much for you, the Naked Basics palette is a great option (and is almost half the price). I absolutely recommend this palette, especially if you don’t want to own a bunch of eyeshadows. This is a great way to get a ton of looks out of one product.
This palette was bought by me. It was not a gift from Urban Decay, and my opinions are my own.
