Urban Decay: Naked Palette VS Naked Palette 2

Hey Beauties,

Urban Decay has created one if not the most amazing Eye Shadow palette out there on the market. Everyone loves a neutral colour I know I do. So Urban Decay came out with The Naked palette that included 12 shades that can go from day to night. But Urban Decay had trouble meeting the demands and they were flying off the shelfs. Supply was down as they had trouble producing the double ended eye pencil. Urban Decay has now fixed this as they have created the double ended Brush that includes a blending and a shadow brush.
What’s even more Exciting is they have now Created (as you all know by now) a Second palette. I love these palettes. As I’m a very neutral girl 9/10 times ill reach for these palettes. They are extremely pigmented and easy to blend. Also there is a whole range of looks you can do with just the one palette. Your choice is endless.
I’ll be going through my thoughts on both palettes. Also loads of photos.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 1:

Urban Decay Naked Palette 1.

This Palette includes 12 Eye Shadows, a double ended brush and a small sample of their Primer potion.

Note: I do have the first Edition so mine does include the Eye Pencil
The packaging is made up of heavy duty cardboard after a while it does becomes flimsy that’s from always opening and closing. It’s also made up of felt like martial. That I hate as it’s easy to get dirty and hard to clean. I have also notice that the gold Naked logo is wearing off.   

Urban Decay Naked Palette 1.

Eye shadows:

In this palette the Shadows include.
Virgin: Perfect for a highlight colour.
Sin: Champagne colour.
Naked: Perfect matte nude colour.
Sidecar: Light Brown with Shimmer.
Buck: Medium Matte colour.
Half Baked: Gold with shimmer.
Smog: Medium Brown with shimmer.
Dark Horse: Very dark Brown with shimmer
Toasted: Copper colour with shimmer.
Hustle: Chocolate colour with shimmer.
Creep: Black with shimmer.
Gunmetal: Dark blue with undertones of silver.

From Left to Right.
Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Halfbaked, Smog, Darkhourse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal. 

My thoughts:
The Eye Shadow I like the least would be Creep as I don’t like black Shadows with any shimmer or glitter.This palette would be perfect for everyone. Also a great item for anyone who has just started getting into makeup.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 2.

Urban Decay Naked Palette 2.

This palette also contains 12 Eye shadows, Good karma Shadow Brush and A 3.23ml Lip Junkie in Naked.


Unlike the first one this palette is make of Heavy Duty Tin J Very easy to clean and looks much nicer the original palette. Out of the 2 I like the second one much better. I don’t want to try just in case I do break a Shadow but I think if you dropped it by mistake I don’t think a shadow would even break. As for the first palette I think you would. But the only down side is that because the tin is so heavy sometimes it tips over if you don’t have anything at the back to support it.

My Thoughts:

I also Love this palette. 
The Palettes both have completely different colours. I was hoping they were not the same as the first but the colours are a whole lot different. With this palette you seem to have more cool tone colours as with the Original naked palette they have more deeper colours .
Round Up:

I think a lot of people are a little skeptical as to whether they are both the same. But having them side by side you can truly tell they are both different in their own ways.  Now if you are looking into buying one and not sure what to get in my opinion have a look at both palettes and see what colours you like the best. Or if you are like me get both. Also if you are a MUA its so much easier to keep all your neutral colours together :)  

Both NAKED 1 and NAKED 2.

Where to buy:

The Naked Palette:
I got mine from BeautyBay for $55.00. At the momet it looks like they are sold out :( 

The Naked Palette 2:
I got mine from the US Urban Decay site and used a mail forwarding system.
You can always try ebay. But please make sure its 100% Authentic.

What Palette do you like the best?
