    For a blue-eyed blonde with warm skin who doesn’t have either palette (yet!), which one would you recommend? I really like both palettes, but I have serious trouble deciding which one I want the most! Love your reviews :D

  2. The “wrong” kind of haux (ho) haha!! :D Thanks for the helpful video Christine. I love some of these colors but I think I’ll be skipping this one as I already have too many of these shades. I agree with you on the Half Baked being included, doesn’t make any sense.

  3. I’m getting this one! I think because I didn’t get the first one (colors didn’t seem right for me), I may be happier with this one than some who did.

  5. love your honesty christine!!!

    Hey! I love your videos and I’ve been looking into buying a Naked palette or just Urban Decay eyeshadow as a Christmas gift for myself :D What would you recommend for brown-black eyes, Indian skin, and black hair?

    Hi christine, how does Chopper compare to bareminerals Spiked from the Eyeshadow 8.0 – The Cocktail Hour palette?

  8. Makeup fan

    And would you recommend Naked 2 or bareminerals Eyeshadow 8.0 – The Cocktail Hour palette? :D

    Would you recommend the original naked palette or Naked 2 for a blonde with brown eyes and warm undertoned skin ( mostly tan all year around ) Thank you!

    I am so disappointed with this palette, personally. I already have 2 Half Baked, YDK, Chopper, Busted (it really is just a repeat of Hustle), Snakebite (mixing Darkhorse and Smog, that is), and believe me, I have enough black eyeshadow to last seven lifetimes. I can’t justify buying a 12 shade palette for only half the shades! I wish they would experiment more with their shades instead of rehashing the same ones, this seems to be a problem with their palettes. I’m not buying this one… my UD-obsessed heart hurts, but at least my wallet is happy.

  12. If I could go back in time and IF Naked 1 and Naked 2 existed at the same time a year ago, I would’ve chose Naked 2. That being said, I would’ve bought Naked 2. I don’t think it’s worth buying now though. It’s too much $$$.

    half-baked is actually my favorite eyeshadow of all time! i got it with the naked 1, and have used literally all of it… no idea how people don’t like this shade!

  14. Nina

    I’m just in love with these palettes! An I’m hopelessly in love with you and your blog! :)
    Dear Christine, what would you recommend for brown-black eyes, pale (I guess cold undertoned) skin and dark blonde hair? Thank you!

    Hey Christine! Thanks for taking the time to go through the palettes so thoroughly. It’s really helpful for those, like me, who don’t have physical access to UD merch. I don’t own either, since I only found out a few months ago a website that shipped UD to New Zealand, and I’m so lost on which one to pick up. I’m a brunette/grey-blue eyes/fair-cool. I think in theory that pegs me in the Naked2 camp – but the comments on the somewhat chalky/dry quality of Foxy and Tease, as well as Chopper the gllitterbomb, make me a bit nervous. And I kind of enjoy the warm goldy bronze colours in 1 for a bit of contrast against the grey-blue. Help! :D To make matters worse, I’m also fairly new to the world of make-up and own little to my name.

    Thanks again,
    Roz.

    Hey Christine!

    I’m sure you’re sick of making recommendations but for someone with warm medium to darkish “Indian dark” skin colour with yellow undertones (I used NC 45 in Studio Fix if that helps?) which of the palettes would you recommend? I can only afford one palette being a student and all!

    Thank you!

  17. Nicole clarke

    Thanks for your blog!!! great info. I am fair, dark hair,green eyes.I have naked 1 but find it too warm. Is it worth going for naked 2 for me??

  18. Jenna

    Hi Christine, I’m new to Urban Decay’s Makeup line (my first product I ever bought from them was their Urban Decay Primer Potion-go figure). Anyways, I have dark brown eyes and hair, a fair/medium skin tone and wear thin rimmed purple glasses. Would you recommend that I buy the Original Naked or Naked 2?

  19. I have cool undertones with green eyes and auburn hair, and I can’t decide which to get! Does anyone have a suggestion?

  20. For blue/green/gray-eyed with dark brown hair with light skin which one would u recommend? I don’t have either one and I’m having trouble deciding which one to get.. Thanks in advance:D
