Features a good variety of shades that work well on many skin tones and some surprising essentials (the pair of highlighters is nice, as is the all-matte taupe Tease). The brush is durable and usable, and the packaging itself, while a step up from Naked’s hard cardboard, has a weird flaw: the individual pans are not very tightly attached to the metal case. While this can be fixed with a hot-glue gun and some patience, it’s a bit of a pain. Another curiosity is the repetition of the shade Half Baked from the original Naked palette; while it’s a great shade, a bright glittery gold might be harder to use everyday than say, another matte nude. Regardless, it’s a great palette and makes an excellent present.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($50.00 for 0.71 oz.) contains twelve eyeshadows: Blackout (blackest black with matte finish), Booty Call Shimmery cork), Busted (deep brown with shimmery finish), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver micro glitter), Foxy (cream bisque with matte finish), Half Baked (golden bronze with shimmery finish), Pistol (light greyish brown with shimmery finish), Snake Bite (dark bronze shimmer with metallic base), Suspect (pale golden beige with shimmery finish), Tease (creamy pale brown with matte finish), Verve (oyster with shimmery finish), YDK (cool bronze shimmer with metallic base), and Lip Junkie Naked (sheer shimmery pinky neutral) and Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush. The brush is good; it’s like Urban Decay’s full-sized brushes–same size, feel, density, and softness.
