Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Swatches, Photos, Reviews

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.

  • Foxy is a pale yellowed beige with a matte finish. It’s on the sheer side and a bit powdery. On my forearm (around NC20), it’s almost invisible. It could work for highlighting the brow on light to medium complexions. It’s similar to Bare Escentuals Daydream, Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone, and MAC Brule.
  • Half Baked is a coppery brown with a golden shimmer-sheen. It’s very frosty but has good color payoff and a smooth texture. It’s part of the permanent range and is also in the Naked 1 palette. This shade is similar to a whole slew of others: theBalm Manic Maribel, Bare Escentuals Louder, MAC Amber Lights, theBalm Meep Meep, and Inglot #405 (and there are probably more).
  • Booty Call is a peach-tinted white-beige with a frosted finish. It’s new for this palette. It’s just a little peach compared to Urban Decay Virgin. It’s also similar to shades like MAC Vanilla, MAC Baby It’s Cold, Urban Decay Skimp, Inglot #353, and MAC Brule.
  • Chopper is a medium orange-red toned rown with coppery flecks of shimmer. This shade is permanent. It has good color payoff, but the sparkle is prone to fall out. It’s similar to shades like Wet ‘n’ Wild Dancing in the Clouds, Dolce & Gabbana Cocoa, and Make Up For Ever #12 (sheered out). Sidecar from Naked 1 is browner, not as orange.
  • Tease is dirty mauve-brown with a matte finish. It’s an interesting shade, but the color payoff is mediocre and texture is very dry and stiff. You really have to jab at it with the bristles of your brush to loosen enough product in order to apply it. It’s similar to MAC Quarry, which is truer-to-pan color than Tease, actually, plus it has more pigmentation. It doesn’t compare favorably to either Sin or Toasted (the two closest shades from Naked 1), partially because the difference in payoff and finish is too dramatic.
  • Snakebite is dark bronze with a dirty golden shimmer-sheen. It has a really lovely dense, buttery texture with excellent color payoff. It is deeper than MAC Tempting but warmer than Inglot #409. It looks similar to Smog, which is warmer, but not so much Darkhorse, which is more of a blackened brown; however, mix the two together, and you pretty much get Snakebite–both Smog and Darkhorse are in Naked 1 (and even right next to each other!).
  • Suspect is a soft champagne-bronze with a frosted, metallic sheen. It has good color payoff but felt a touch powdery. theBalm Schitzo is more golden and smoother. Sidecar (from Naked 1) is just pinker.
  • Pistol is a dirty gray-brown with a frosted finish. I’m hesitant to call it a taupe, because it has a lot of brown in it. The payoff is good, and the texture is soft and smooth. It’s similar to theBalm selfish and NARS Bali (but matte). It doesn’t compare to any shades from Naked 1.
  • Verve is a pale beige-gray with a pink tinge. This was in the Rollergirl palette. It doesn’t have a dupe or similar shade in the Naked 1 palette. NARS Grand Palais is several shades darker, while Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone is more golden and gray (less pink). Urban Decay Ruthless is more beige.
  • YDK is a warm, coppery red-toned medium brown with a frosted finish. The color payoff is good with a smooth texture. Inglot #421 is deeper and more intense. Urban Decay Shag has more copper. Urban Decay Wreckage is a little less warm. MAC Buckwheat is a bit darker. It is very similar to Sidecar and just a little less warm compared to Toasted from Naked 1.
  • Busted is a burgundy-tinted, deep brown with warm, golden undertones. It has a soft, frosted finish. The color payoff was good and the texture smooth, though a little less dense than other shades. It’s almost the same as Hustle from Naked 1. MAC Midnight Flurry is a bit more burgundy. theBalm Mahna Mahna is more intense, more red-toned. Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone is darker, as is MAC Smut.
  • Blackout is a really intense, deep dark black with a matte finish. It has really great payoff and goes on very black. It doesn’t have a comparable shade in Naked 1. Make Up For Ever #4 and Sugarpill Bulletproof are also very deep dark blacks with matte finishes.
  • Naked is a sheer neutral pink with white micro-shimmer. The gloss is non-sticky and mint-scented.

Naked 2 is a phenomenal value ($204 worth of eyeshadow, $24 worth of brush, $6 worth of lipgloss–$234 total), just like Naked 1, but I don’t think you need both. There are too many similar shades to merit both (seriously, why even include Half Baked again?). Like the original palette, this is a warm-toned neutral outlay of shades. I’m really not sure why they went with warmer shades (over neutral or cool) when Naked 1 encompassed mostly warm-toned shades already. I know that several readers with cooler complexions felt like Naked 1 wasn’t as flattering on them.

It’s packaged in a metal tin that closes shut really well, but it is a bit heavier than Naked 1; it’s the same size in terms of length and width. I’ve traveled with the Naked 1 palette many, many times, and I haven’t had any issues with it opening, ripping, looking worn, etc. I expect that the packaging of Naked 2 will appeal to others, though, as it feels more secure and hefty. If you’re less inclined to have a dual-ended brush, an Urban Decay 24/7 Liner will fit in the slot as well.

The color payoff of Tease is really disappointing; it’s dry, stiff, and applies unevenly. It takes a lot of packing and blending to make it work, which is a real shame given that mattes in Urban Decay palettes can be hard to come by! Foxy is also on the sheerer side but not terribly so, but it has some powderiness to it. Chopper has that micro-glitter texture Urban Decay loves but is prone to fall out.

Half-Baked is a repeat, Bootycall is just warmer than Virgin, Snakebite is similar to Smog (and exactly the same as Darkhorse + Smog together), Suspect is just a touch less warm than Sidecar, YDK is quite close to both Sidecar and Toasted, and Busted is almost the same as Hustle. The shades that didn’t have comparable shades already in Naked 1 were Foxy, Chopper, Tease, Pistol, Verve, and Blackout; that’s five of twelve.

I don’t know how this really measures up to Urban Decay’s “12 Taupe + Greige Neutrals” remark on the product page, because I don’t really see those shades well represented in this palette. The quality, overall, is good; I don’t think it’s as good across the board as the first palette, but for $50 and twelve full-sized eyeshadows, it’s certainly worth taking a look at. I just don’t think it lives up to the hype here, and again, if you have Naked 1, Naked 2 isn’t much of a leap.

I will have comparison swatches in a separate post.

I actually think I will like this one better when I finally get it, but I’m excited for it, I think they did a really good jod with choosing colors and to me it’s a lot different from the first one and seems more wearable for someone with my skin tone and all!

Christine,

I <3 your super speedy, honest, high quality review.

Thank you so much. I think I will skip this because the only color I *really* wanted was YDK, and that is a lot cheaper than $50.

Agreeing with you Christine! The palette is just too similar to Naked #1 for me to warrant buying this one too, as pretty as these shades are. I am however, eyeing that lip junkie. Love that color/sparkle!

I want this so badly, but Urban Decay’s website is freaking out on me! I can’t say I’m surprised, but I AM disappointed! Maybe it’s a sign I should wait and go easy on my bank account… ๐Ÿ™ Thanks for reviewing this so quickly, I am seriously impressed!

It was *very* overloaded. But ironically, I placed my order before the overload – no problem. But then I never got my email confirmation, and I can’t see the order in my account. It went through at PayPal, and I’m unable to re-use the promo code I used on that order (error code says it’s already been redeemed), so I’m hopeful it’s somewhere in the system. But if it’s not, and their response to my email is, “Whoops, we’ll refund your money” I don’t think I’ll attempt to re-purchase it next week. Partly because your review cooled me off a little, but also because if a company is going to hype like crazy and create artificial scarcity to benefit their brand, they should at least have their website and servers up to the task.

Well, their response WAS “whoops, we’ll refund your money” and I was not pleased (not even an apology). But a few minutes later I got a shipping confirmation, LOL. Clearly they could be a little more organized over there. But I’m getting the palette, and I’m looking forward to it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for all your hard work getting this review out! Although the shades are very similar to Naked, I still ordered Naked 2. Love the swatches!

I’m not sure why I bought this… I kept asking myself AS I was ordering it this morning… “Why are you buying this again?” LOL! I get a fair amount of use from the Naked 1 palette but I’ve depotted everything in it (I just keep them in my Z Palettes). I like the look of the tin on this one so I thought, “Eh, it’s similar but I’ll get it so I have a seperate palette sitting on my shelf!” LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ It would be nice to see some more cool-toned shades, but I’m a BIG sucker for cool-toned neutrals, I have WAY more than I need.

I’m sure you’ll hear this 128 times today but… Thanks for posting this so quickly!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not at all surprised, Dusty… It’s like a disease…

Cool-toned neutrals are probably more wearable than warm ones, just universally – I know I LOVE cool-toned neutrals on me as much as warmer ones! Hey, they could have at least thrown a couple cool and neutral ones in.

The shopping?! Yes it is… In fact I was SO upset with myself after I ordered it that I immediately called up Neiman Marcus and ordered the Tom Ford cream stick foundation and gel liner… THEN I went to Sephora and picked up the two Illamasqua foundations that are available through them (to go with the three that I bought from Illamasqua on black Friday of course!)

My palette thoroughly cleansed of Urban Decay Naked 2 disease… I was able to continue my day.

I don’t personally own either of these palettes but, I think I’ll stick to, if I decided to buy an urban decay palette, with the first one as they just are way to similiar it seems.

You could definitely go either route – some prefer the tin packaging of 2! I think the quality of 1 is better, though.

I know packaging is important but the overall purpose is for the product itself, lol! Thank you for such a in depth review and I think I’ll stick to 1! <3

I like Naked 1 personally – it doesn’t have any duds! Some didn’t like the packaging, though — I haven’t had trouble with mine!

Definitely not my cup of tea. Much more lackluster than the first.
They should have just made it an all matte palette with 3 complementary shimmer shades instead of vice versa.
Also, out of all the shades/dupes of shades in the Naked Palette to keep, I feel like Buck and Naked should have been the ones as they are the most popular/over all favorites.

I was reading the comments and you two have it right: I get that the Naked 1 pallete was a success that had to be built on, but why didn’t they spend a little time time developing some different textures and maybe some different colors? I know that the pallete would be duped, but why are the folks at Urban Decay so obsessed with duping their own stuff?

It’s very disappointing to see that they came out with another palette with so many similar colors to the last one! I’m surprised not all 12 eyeshadows were top notch quality like the last one.. will definitely be skipping this.

Thank you SO much for working as fast as you could with the review and swatches, your dedication is always appreciated.

Your review has sealed the deal for me. I think I’d rather get theBalm’s Nude Tude palette or their muppets ones (I have been hunting this down on eBay haha)

OK, I feel good about my purchase. I was nervous to buy before seeing your swatches, but these all look really good to me. I can see why some think it’s just “more of the same”. It is. Luckily, I love what this is, and I love neutrals. For me, the more variations, the better! ๐Ÿ™‚

Is anyone else having trouble ordering online, I get to the sumbmit order step and then it just takes me back to the cart. No confirmation number page and it doesnt show up that I’ve ordered anything when I go to my account!

I think if they had mixed up the palette in finish/texture, they could have given us more variety, even if the hues were close.

Oh Christine, thanks SO much for saving me 50 bucks! I saw some rave over the Internet this morning, and I’ve been waiting for your review (which is in my humble opinion the most unbiased out there). I wasn’t as drawn to this one as the original Naked palette, because the colors lean cooler and I have accumulated many similar shades. Also, from other swatch pictures, I could already see how Tease totally underperforms. I guess it’s still good value for money, but I won’t be doling out 50 dollars for this one!

PS: Love this full-face picture of yours. You look fantastic!

Thank you Christine for getting these up so fast!

I just bought TheBalm’s Nude ‘Tude, and I have other similar colors in my stash already, so I guess I’ll pass. Can I just say though, the itty bitty lipgloss is adorable!

I can’t believe they included Half-Baked again. I mean, I get that it’s only one shade, but really? I just think it’s stupid because the majority of people who would be seriously interested in this palette likely already have the first. Meh, whatever, likely going to pass on this!

As always, thank you for an awesome review, Christine. Your hard work is much appreciated! But because I’m a big lemmer, I still ordered Naked 2 even though I already have Naked 1 lol ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m curious how some of these colors stack up to the Stila In The Light Natural Palette, many of these shades look to be near dupes from that palette. I’m sorely tempted to get it, but I might wait till it hits shelves to do some comparisons swatches.

You really took all of my thoughts and put them into your review. I bought the original Naked Palette but since I’m cool toned a lot of the shades just don’t work for me. I was hoping Naked 2 might be more cool-toned, maybe more silvery and gray shades to work with as well as some champagne tones that work well for us cooler skinned people. It’s a miss I think and seems so anti-climatic.

I’m honestly surprised that it wasn’t more cool-toned. There were really only three complaints people had about Naked 1 – packaging (TBH, I loved Naked 1 packaging, LOL!), lack of mattes), too warm-toned/too many warm shades.

Thanks Christine. I was going to buy this, but I think I’m going to wait for it. It will eventually be in stock (after all the craziness has died down).

Anyways, do you have the Smashbox Photo Op 78 Mega Palette? I’m interested in getting it, but I just wanted to see if you were going to review it.

I’m so disappointed they went with yet another warm-toned collection! The original Naked palette did not work AT ALL with my skintone and I had hoped this would be one for us cool-toned types. Booo.

Ugh! I haven’t bought anything from this brand in awhile since I can’t do so without ending up with tons of dupes. It’s a shame they haven’t learned how to mix it up a bit and come up with some new shades. Baffling, really…

Phew, you just saved me $50. Thanks, Christine!

I really do hope Naked 3 will include some cooler colors. I was pretty excited about Pistol, but it’s a shame that everything else in Naked 2 looks like a rehash of Naked 1.

I already own Naked 1 and just as I thought, I am not missing a whole lot out of Naked 2 (I already own Naked Lipgloss)…I think the only thing that captivates me is the sleeker packaging on Naked 2.

Thanks for the comparisons and swatches, it helped me make up my mind on if I wanted to get Naked 2 or not! (I’m passing..I am very happy with Naked 1) ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s permanent – they’re deliberately trying to create hype but making the initial offering only 5,000 so you feel the need to buy or die, LOL! You can grab it any time, and they’ll launch more next week, and all the usual retailers will release it in January.

I was excited for this, but I passed because it’s too much like the first. I wish they would have actually went with taupes, greys, purples… just something DIFFERENT, but still neutral enough… =( I still like the original naked better, but if I didn’t have that I would consider this if I couldn’t find the first.

If you like warm shades, sure – you don’t have to only wear cool shades if you’re cool-toned, but you might have to work them in with cooler eyeshadows or pair with cooler blush/lips.

Honestly I love the tin, If they just replaced Creep with Blackout in the original Naked palette and put it into the new tin I would have bought Another Naked(1) and would have been happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hint Hint Urban Decay. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But Foxy doesn’t make for a good brow bone shade on me, dark enough for the lid yes!

Wow Christine you work fast, dang girl you’re good ;)!!!I just commented on the other post about how they repromote colors and when making a new palette I really wished they’d create new colors for a new palette…. I was convinced that I didn’t want, but after seeing the swatches and your review I’m wanting even though I have the 1st naked palette. Christine maybe you can help that matte black looks simply amazing!!!! Do you know of a matte black that is just as good in quality???? Thank you so much for your hard work ๐Ÿ™‚

yeah, the only shades that appeal to me are tease and pistol, but since tease is such a letdown, it’s not worth it for only one shade, plus i already have virgin, suspect, verve and blackout…. =/

I only just saw your individual review – now there’s only Pistol I want, but then it’s probably better if I go for one of the MUFE Aqua Creams of similar colors – I think #15 is pretty similar.

I never could bring myself to purchase Naked 1 because of lack of matte shades, and somehow this palette is making me even more reluctant to get Naked 1. I’m really disappointed. UD is so full of promise and what they’ve come up with for the past few palettes is so… boring.

I think a mix of #2 and #15? LOL!

Thanks sooooo much for these, at least I won’t have to go to sleep wondering about how *awesome* the palette would be ๐Ÿ˜‰

I just need a moment to say WTF WITH THE SECOND HALF BAKED! I am sick of that color and it’s only very flattering on those with very warm undertones! Phew. With that said, they have produced another wearable palette that is an incredible value. I’m not sure if I’m going to rush to order this, but if there are at least a few colors I’d use, I’ll get it eventually (since just that would pay for itself). Right now, it seems I would like Pistol, Tease, Suspect, and Verve, and I’ve considered purchasing YDK on it’s own before…

see I love it and have it in a pan form as well. I’d rather see that again then Midnight Cowboy in ever other palette from UD.

That being said they could have done something different … another matte maybe?

The palette could have used more color that was still “neutral.” Like they had Gunmetal, which had bluish tones, and Hustle, which had burgundy tones – how about an earthy green? Or an eggplant purple (I think people would have loved Rockstar more). How about a brownish teal?

I’m all for earthy green or brownish teals. Not a fan of purples (you know looks like busing on fair skin ever so slightly lol) but I love taupes and burgundies.

After seeing and reading your review… I REALLY jumped the gun on this! I should have waited for your review instead of doing what I do best… impulse buy!!! I already have the original Naked and to me, they honestly look the same! Oh well!!! SMH But great review like ALWAYS!!! You never disappoint me with your reviews! Thanks a bunch!

Hi Christine,

Aside from Verve and Half Baked, there are a few more colours that are repromotes, right? I know Suspect is in my Rollergirl Palette, Blackout is in the anniversary palette, and YDK and Chopper are colours I swear are in the permanent line. Do you know if they’re different in colour and texture?

Thanks!

The quality is better (overall) in 1, just because there are no duds there, and Tease is a dud in Naked 2 – but this palette is slightly less warm than 1 but still warmer.

Hi gorgeous, I’m so in love with this palette but I’m going to wait cuz I already have the 1st one and I didn’t use it a lot yet…Do you know how much longer will last the 15th anniversary palette by urban decay? I’m from brazil and I would like to bye it during my vacation (next year), but I’m afraid to miss it since it is limited edition! thanks for helping! ๐Ÿ™‚

Actually, there was a total dud in Naked 1 too: Sidecar! Lord, the fallout on that is incredible. I looove the shade, but there’s no way I could wear it to work, because I always end up with glitter all over my face when I put it on! Which is why I’m excited for the shades similar to Sidecar in Naked 2 with the hopes that the fallout won’t be nearly as awful.

Thank you so much for the review!

I already own the first Naked Palette which I use all the time and LOVE LOVE LOVE. I don’t think I’ll be getting this one though. I was really excited when I heard they were making it. However, after seeing it, I know I won’t bother investing in it. =/

The first one rocks though! =D

I was hoping this palette would have more matte or cool-toned shades. It’s a shame that neither one is the case. Still, they swatch beautifully (for the most part), and are a great value, so I’m sure a lot of people will be happy!!

I actually like this version better than the original. Mainly because it includes a highlight shade that works for me (Foxy….Virgin was waay to light and cool for me), and it has a matte black that can be used for a liner (Blackout). I think Naked2 leans a little less warm too with the inclusion of Pistol. Overall this version is a bit more wearable for me….I know I would use more shades out of this one compared to the original so for me it works out! I had swapped my original Naked away anyway lol.

I will say that I tried Blackout as an eyeliner with this palette, and it just appears way too stark ๐Ÿ™ I love Blackout, but personally, if you’re really looking for just neutrals, it doesn’t work as well!

Hey Christine.

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing site. When I first heard about the second Naked palette on another site, it struck me just how much I rely on you for high quality swatches and detailed reviews. For the past couple years, you have consistently been my starting point for researching new makeup products. I almost always agree completely with your criticisms (Why on earth would they include Half Baked AGAIN? Are they going to include two pans of Half Baked in the Naked 3?) and I think you have amazing taste. Thank you so much for doing such consistently great work.

Very disappointed. Naked 1 was too warm, this isn’t any better and I hoped for more nom-brown shades. It’ll sell well for sure, but a pass from me.

I was hoping that it would be a cool toned neutral palette but obviously it isn’t:( seriously why it is hard to find a decent palette with cooler colours? it is annoying.I don’t have the first naked palette,I would love to have this one(or the other) but I don’t feel like joining the crazy chase.

I’m actually really happy the added half baked again. I use the most in naked 1 & have been debating on buying a single of it. Now I don’t have to ;). Of course this means I will always be traveling with not one large UD box, but 2. Oh well…

I go this, and for me, (a true connaiseur of neutrals LOL- my ever present fear of bold makeup keeps me in a strict comfort zone)it’s great!!! I think that the similarity may have been on purpose…I see this palette being the answer to many problems presented in the first one, like both mattes being blending colors, whereas there is a liner, highlight, and blending(ish) shade seen here, or the glittery fallout, which I didn’t feel was present int he glittery shades here as it was in Sidecar. And another issue I had was Hustle being ashy and lackluster, and virgin comign across as an ashy grey tone on my skin, and Busted and Bootycall are literally the answer to all fo my problems-LOL. Ad I felt that this palette had a better balance of cool and warm tones- making it more universally usable. For me, it was great, but I can see it being an issue for people with different tastes and skin tones ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately, none of these shades were very cool on me ๐Ÿ™ They all ready really warm! I wish some of these were cool on me – it would have been much better! I’m glad it works for you!

Thank you Christine! I love how your blog is 1000000% you dont just hype up a product because you got it for free or even if you played for it. I saw a few reviews on youtube and after watching their reviews I was going to get it, but then i saw your review. It made total sense not to get the Naked 2 if you already have Naked 1
Thank you for saving me $50

I am so excited for this! I passed on naked1 bc I already owned half the shades in singles.. This palette has close dupes for the shades I don’t have from naked1! YAY!

Sigh. As a super pale, cool-toned chick I’m disappointing. I was really hoping UD would release something that we could rock in flattering cool-toned shades, but instead its just another palette full of warm toned shadows just like naked 1. meh.

Arrgh… I bought this today, and was totally excited, but now … not so much. I’m upset that Tease is such a crappy shadow because I really loved how it looked in the photos; I’m liking the looks of Pistol, YDK, and Busted, and the black is a nice black… but the rest is just like my Naked 1. Waaahhh!!!

From someone with VERY warm and deep skin that owns Naked 1, this is a welcome palette. I don’t know what people are smokin’, but Naked 1 is sooo cool toned!!! The only warm shade in the whole damn palette is Half Baked!!! It’s also one of my absolute favorite UD colors, along with Chopper, so I don’t mind seeing them side by side. Also, Amber Lights is nothing like Half Baked! It’s much, much more orange. I’d say the color (though not the finish) is closer to Mac’s Honeylust.

Anyway, I totally wished I’d waited for this instead of picking up the first Naked palette. From what I’ve seen, Naked 2 seems like it will be way more flattering on warm toned brown girls!

Naked 1 is definitely warm-toned on me! Glad this will work for you – though Naked 1 was warmer – Naked 2 is less warm!

I have to agree with this. Naked 1 is very cool toned on me. I have to be VERY careful, otherwise the looks can look frosty. I think I will wait until Sephora gets Naked 2 to decide if Im getting it or not. For now, Im picking up the 15th anniversary palette. Chopper is calling me though, so I may pick up the single version

It would – but TBH, I don’t think it works well with these neutrals! I tried using it, but it’s SO intense – it just looks stark, plus it’s cool-toned!

Oh no, I thought I was going to pass on this one, but you being you, HAD to post such awesome pictures and create a lemming.
Some of the shades are really similar to Naked 1, though. What I want to see is have UD create a palette just like the Naked’s but more colorful – solid yellows, greens etc. I don’t like how most of their other colorful palettes are so bulky and hard to travel with.

The Deluxe Shadow Pallette has several bright colors, great pigmentation, 3 really pretty neutrals, and an awesome black. The pallette is very sleek.

Thank you, as always, for the fantastic review! There are a few things I don’tt like about this palette, but I do see myself eventually adding it to my collection. Maybe I’m just a UD groupie, but I know I’ll always be getting quality products from them and it won’t go to waste. I am annoyed with seeing Half-Baked again, but…that’s life.

No problem, Desiree! Tease is such a let-down, and honestly, so disappointed by UD for including such a finicky matte when they have a good matte formula.

Wow, i think i’m liking this palette much more than the first one! ALL the shades are wearable, and the black would make a great eyeliner shade. eyeshadow, highlight, and eyeliner in one palette, plus a brush. Seems very convenient!

Thanks Christine for the review and pics!! I totally agree with the warmer shades comment you made. I’m cool-toned (I usually stay away from browns pinks and corals on my eyes, b/c i just don’t find them flattering on me.) I think Naked 2 is way too warm for me to want it badly. I might still get it if i can get a good deal on it later just bc i love UD ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you, thank you, thank you for saving me $50 +. When I first saw the palette I was like meh, then I started looking at people’s blogs and actually convinced myself that it wouldn’t hurt to get it, even though most of the colors would be used as highlights on my dark skin. I don’t know why I forgot that I could get what I want as singles. So thanks for the frankness, I needed that!

Verve and Suspect are both in the Rollergirl palette, along with Darkhorse from Naked 1 – if people are on the fence about paying for Naked 2, those colors are all outstanding and Rollergirl is on sale on UrbanDecay.com. Suspect is one of my favorite eyeshadows ever and I’m actually debating Naked 2 to have a backup – but I’ll probably just end up buying another Rollergirl.

I got a Box of Shadows IV as a gift recently and I think so many of the colors between that and both Naked palettes are too similar to warrant a Naked purchase – but this is just so PRETTY. Sigh.

Yes – I think if you have more than few of UD’s palettes, they do start to run together! Which is to be expected to a certain degree.

I hate that they put Half Baked in this palette, AGAIN. I have Half Baked (or basically the same color with a different name) in every single UD palette I have and I never wear it because it is so unflattering on me.

Also, I think if/when they make a Naked 3 for some reason, it should be MATTE!

PHEW! i was like “OMGGGG NAKED2 I HAVE TO HAVE ITTTTTTT” and then worry about my already overbudget christmas spending, ur review saved me haha! definitely not gettting it now cuz its so similiar to naked1! but im a huge fan of metal cases, it feels more “secure”, and my naked1 case catches dusk really easily

Christine,

Thank you so much for the in-depth review. I’m a sucker for cute packaging, but I held off until you posted your thoughts. I don’t need another Half Baked, I have the original Naked palette, I own Blackout from the 15th year Anniversary palette, and theBalm’s Nude’tude is on its way. I only buy palettes that you highly recommend! I look forward to your posts each and every day!

Oh yeah, with theBalm’s nude palette, I think you should be good! I think Blackout is the shade that will sell this palette a lot – but 15th Anniversary palette is $5 more + all different.

I’ve been wanting Anniversary but ended up getting N2 instead. Sure I should have bought Anniversary since I bought two N2 palettes but I don’t know why I just didn’t justify spending the $55 on it. I think it’s because if when I break the price down it’s like $3.something per shadow in Anniversary while in N2 (once you exclude the brush and gloss) it’s about $1.50 per shadow. I still want Anniversary though.

I thought Blackout was exclusive to the 15th Anniversary palette. Guess not.

I think I’m going to pass this one out. I don’t need that many neutrals, especially if you already own Naked 1 and the 15th.

Thanks for your fast review! ๐Ÿ™‚

Gives it to me! I’ve only got a few of those currently: Half Baked (from NP1), Suspect (from BOS3, and a million different matte blacks because that’s how everybody rolls when it comes to making palettes.

So, Imma say it’s worth it and I need it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you sooo much for the speedy swatches. You’re awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

As a makeup addict, when I heard that UD was coming out with Naked2, I told myself that I had to get it, no matter what.

So this morning, I jumped on UD website, put the palette in my cart, then thought to myself, I wonder what Christine thought of this. So I waited patiently for your review and comparison. (trust me, I was checking your blog every 5 minutes this morning– I am pretty bad considering I was at a tradeshow all day! Lol!)

I read your review, and now, I am letting this pallets go. I just can’t spend $50+tax on something that is way too similar. You have done it again, Christine. You have saved me tons of money, my bf will be very proud of me. Hahaha.

Thanks Christine. Hey, if you’re ever in the LA area, I owe you a fancy dinner for you having saved me tons of $$$, saving me from headaches and disappointments! Lol.

Thanks again!

It seems odd that that UD would release a sequel to Naked and make the colors so similar to the original. The one color I really wanted was Tease but thanks to your review I know I already own a dupe, MAC’s Quarry!

IMO the better follow up to the original palette would have been to release the shades exclusive to that palette as singles.I would buy Virgin, Naked and Buck as singles in a heartbeat but I’m not willing to shell out for a whole other palette when I run out of those three colors. Although I do dig the sequel’s packaging.

Three things:

#1 – Half-Baked? Again? I simply don’t understand.
#2 – I’m so annoyed that I bought a Rollergirl backup, because it looks like I can get both Verve and Suspect in here. Should have known something like that would happen -rolls eyes- And though I’m not digging this, I feel like I’m eventually going to end up getting this palette. /story of a newbie mu fanatic.
#3 – Considering UD’s track record, I have the distinct feeling that eventually all 15 of the “exclusive” shades from the anniversary palette are going to show up in future releases. So far we’ve got what, two shades in less than six months after the anniversary release?

Overall, not feeling this. Maybe if someone gets it for me as a present I won’t mind ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL, who would? But thanks as always for the great review and swatches!

Oh, forgot to add that I love the look you did with this palette though (: I saw it and thought it looked simple but elegant, and was like, “What is that gorgeous lid color, I MUST have it!” Then I realized it was Verve, so I’m good ๐Ÿ˜›

Thanks for the review – it was good for my wallet! I was hoping for cooler-toned colors, and this didn’t deliver enough for me. Add to that the fact I rarely wear neutrals and that I just bought two UD palettes on sale (Vegan and Fun) a few days ago… and this is a no. Despite the fact that I REALLY want Blackout.

Both the Naked palettes would look FANTASTIC on my sister, though. I might encourage her to get one so I can try it out!

Thanks for sharing! I never picked up the first one, even though I’ve wanted to SO badly, and had actually put it on my Christmas list, but thankfully, I saw the new one and was able to update my list before the first one was purchased. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If I don’t get it for Christmas, I’m most likely going to buy it myself ASAP. I love it!

I bought Naked 2 and I have the first one. I didn’t think it was so similar that there was no value to me. I use the first one quite a bit and I’m already planning fun things to incorporate these palettes together. The commentary about it being sooo similar to the first puzzles me, because people buy all the Book of Shadows and those palettes MOST DEFINITELY have the same shades in palette after palette, including that awful Midnight Cowboy, yet no one has an issue with that. It’s just a little odd. But I hope everyone is happy and doing lovely things with whatever they buy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have an issue with it, actually – I point it out repeatedly during my reviews and regularly provide dupes and similar shades from the gamut of brands, including UD’s previous palettes. Although, many of these shades are not merely repromotes but supposedly different (hence the different name), but they’re not really so different after all. I don’t think I said it held no value, but if you have the first one, there’s certainly not a must-have mentality when it comes to the second one. I also said if you like more than a few shades, then that alone makes the palette worth it.

wow you hit the nail on the head when you said it could have been complimentary as opposed to similar. half of it looks like the same shadows placed in different areas on the palette. the other half are like yellows and peaches and colors i just would’t wear and wouldn’t be tempted to wear. i can’t believe they put half baked in there again… and that purple color really DOES look like hustle. ๐Ÿ™ Disappointed

I knew when I saw your preview post that this wouldn’t appeal to me. I’m not one of those people who is going to jump on the bandwagon just because because something is a cult product. Urban Decay could have done so much better with Naked 2, in my opinion.

I still don’t have the first one so I’m really not interested in this. The colors are great but how many UD neutrals can one own? I have all the ones that are available as singles. My current everyday look is Toasted on the lid, Stray Dog on the outer corners and crease, and a light sweep of YDK as a highlighter.

I’d love to get a quad with just Pistol, Verve, Busted and Blackout (with the brush), but I’m really disappointed this is so similar to Naked 1. I love that palette, but I was really hoping this would be a neutral-cool variation on the same theme.

OMG, thank you so much, Christine! I was about to jump out of my skin this morning when I saw that it was already sold out on the UD website! Now that I see the swatches and comparison, I actually like the original Naked 1 a whole lot better. I’ll probably hold off on this until the craziness dies down. No point in losing sleep over such a dupable palette!

I very much agree with your final thoughts, Christine. It would have been nice to have fewer glittery shadows and to have had more cool tones and greys. I know I’ll still get this – I love a lot of the colours in it – but a bit more creativity and thought from a company that prides itself on creativity….well, it would have been nice.

In another thread you have (the comparison one, I think) someone said that it would have been nice to have Mushroom in this palette and I really agree. I’ve wanted Mushroom for ages (though not enough to have purchased the recent Mariposa palette – I thought I’d get it and then decided it really wasn’t for me). It would have been perfect in this Naked2 palette, in place of one of the shades that is really close to something in Naked1.

Ah, I was hoping for a couple of cooler shades. ๐Ÿ™ I love my Naked palette, but some of the warmer shades do take some serious blending to work on my complexion. Ah well. Money saved to spend elsewhere! ๐Ÿ˜€

The packaging on Naked1 is the whole reason why I never bought it – now that the number 2 appears to have superior packaging, I think I might check it out. Velour/velvet has never appealed to me – the texture, the look, how it gets dirty so easily. The new packaging can be wiped clean, doesn’t attract dust, and will be more sturdy. Win-win ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t drop it, because the eyeshadows will shatter much more easily compared to the cardboard packaging — that’s the biggest downside to the new packaging ๐Ÿ™‚ I travel with the Naked 1 and haven’t had any issues with it!

You can travel with it, just don’t drop it – that’s my favorite aspect of cardboard packaging. The softer packaging absorbs impact, while plastic/metal doesn’t, so powder products are more likely to break or shatter in the latter type of packaging.

Super helpful review!
I actually have a question though for which palette might be better for me. I’m asian, so that means I have really yellow undertones. Do you think this palette would suit me better or the original naked (as far as daily, natural makeup look)?

i am also Asian, and i think the naked 1 would be better for you because you wouldn’t be able to use blackout and some of the darker tones in naked 2. I use naked 1 on a everyday basis when i go to work and i work in an office environment. Hope that helps!

Great review and photos!!!! Sorry for the nit-picky question, but how would you compare pistol to Mac smoke & diamonds? And blackout to carbon? Thanks in advance!!!

Smoke & Diamonds is similar but more taupe ๐Ÿ™‚ Carbon is pitiful compared to Blackout. Like even mentioning Carbon in the same sentence is insulting, lol!

I am absolutely in love with this palette! The Naked 1 palette never impressed me, so I never bought it. But all these shades put together are just perfect for me. When I tried to purchase it this morning, there was a glitch. Once it was fixed it was all sold out. But, thanks to this amazing swatching post you did, I will be purchasing it next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks so much for all the hard work you do! I know us readers really appreciated it! <3

In which palette was Blackout released before this one? I’m trying to remember it. It’s an awesome black, wish that was available as a single!

Really helpful review and swatches, Christine! I bought one of 5000 palettes today, because I had been thinking about buying a backup of the Naked 1 palette anyway, so even though there is a repeat shadow (Half Baked is in SO many UD palettes), and a lot of shades are very similar, I don’t mind buying them both.

I have naked 1 but I’m still probably going to cave and get this because I’m obsessed. I’m going to try to hold off though.. we’ll see. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Still a good palette ๐Ÿ™‚ Just not absolutely necessary and underwhelming since it’s not as different as it could have been.

thx chritine for wonderful review, i’ve been dying to see the swatches of this…well gotta say i was excited at first but i prefer the range of colors in original one better. Only things i like about this are the package(more secure)and the fact that it includes black e/s(but you always can find any black e/s, nothing special about color)

First thought…NOOOOO they put that filigree top on the baby glosses now, too. I have a full size lip junkie in a zippered pocket in my purse and the filigree bit has broken.

I really wish UD hadn’t done another Naked palette, I’d have love to see them do color families. Personally, I’d probably buy an UD BLUE and GREEN and PINK and…etc, palette, but even if they’d done a cool color and a warm color palette, I’d be happier than this. I might eventually pick it up if it remains permanent, there’s at least two shades in there I’ve been wanting, but I’m not terribly excited by it.

They could certainly do a cool neutral and then a pop of color palette – but I guess the Ammo box is kind of like that.

Ugh I still have an extra Naked 1 new in the box since last times ordering frenzy, but something about this palette is calling me… great review btw, hopefully I wont even get a chance to order it lol!

I’m glad to read an honest review since this is the latest craze and it’s already sold out on Urban Decay.com. As a UD fan I’m torn on getting this because I have 3 of the shades in here and I have cool/neutral skin and this seems like a medium for warm and neutral. I loved that tease color at first sight then you mentioned it was difficult. I appreciate your photos and swatches. This is something I’ll wait for since I’d like to see it in person.

Is that some tiny glitter on Blackout? hope not!
anyway, I think its great to have a true black among all these neutrals!
I think I prefer Naked 2 because in general it seems a bit less shimmery… maybe that’s just me, but I swear I see less shimmer! lol

Christine, thanks again for your amazing work!

HI Christine ๐Ÿ™‚

I love your reviews!

I have neutral skin tone and even though I LOVE UD Naked 1, I may like part 2 more ๐Ÿ™‚ I think the first palette is a bit… too warm (?) for my eyes. Don’t get me wrong, I really love it and use it almost everyday, but I am blonde, with light brown eyes and light in-between-cool-and-warm skin-tone, so do you think this may look better?

Understandable – this one is slightly less warm than the original, but it IS a warm palette. I wouldn’t consider it neutral or cool-toned!

The only color I wish my Naked palette had was a black, but I will not be purchasing Naked2 just for that. For travel I don’t mind carrying a single black eyeshadow along with my Naked Palette. This is a pass for me. I love the original Naked palette even more I see after seeing Naked2. I could change my mind in the future since it’s permanent. Never know.

Blah I’m not really a neautral kinda girl. I own the Smashbox softbox palette and I thought the colors were nice because there were some mix of pinks and peach. I don’t own Naked 1 and I’m currently debating between both. I felt Naked 1 was too dark or my skin. I’m pretty fair BUT the area around my eyes are dark so any dark brown eye shadow would just make it look darker. D: And any cooler toned e/s would look muddy or grey. *sigh* The only colors I’m interested in in Naked 2 are Chopper, YDK and Busted. Maybe someday when I hit pan on some e/s on my softbox palette then I’ll consider buying another neautral palette.

I think I’ll just stick to bright colors. PLEASE UD, make a palette with colors but easily portable like these Naked palettes. Please please please!

Oh and I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing more of the ‘exclusive’ shades from the 15th anniversary set popping up in future collections.

I think they’re but they retail for $30 here each! I might as well get the palette. LOL. If I can find it at a discount I’ll pick them up then.

wow, i actually like it. I didn’t even buy #1 because I’m not really a big fan of neutrals but i really like the #2 and me consider buying. Noticed they increased the price for the 2 too.

Hi Christine,
First of all thank you for uploading your review and swatches so quickly! Also since I dont own the Naked palette , which would you recommend between the Naked2 and the Balm Nude ‘tude palettes?
Thanks!

Though I agree the palettes kind of seem the same, I think there’s enough of a difference for me to like the second one way better than the first one. I find the cooler and matte shades in this one so pretty. Plus a good duel ended brush is really a huge plus for me.

Mine is on it’s way! I had a 10% off coupon for signing up for UD emails, so that was pretty awesome. And I got a sample size El Dorado pencil. The colors in N2 are different enough to me to warrant a purchase, but I don’t have that much makeup so I could see how someone who already has lots of shadows wouldn’t find it necessary. I think I’ll like this one even more than N1. I can’t wait to get it!

I agree, very disappointed that half baked is a repeat, it wasn’t such a standout from the original that we needed another one. I’m one of those people who loves neutrals and am still going to buy this palette.

Thanks for your review I can always count on you for the best info!!

Hi Christine, Thank you for the review; I was really looking forward to hear from you on this. I would definitely look for it and give it a try to this new palette, I love the way you did your make up with this palette.

I just bought the original Naked palette over a month ago so I’m still having fun creating looks with that one. Since Naked 2 will become apart of the main collection, I’ll probably just hold off on buying it until March or so. Had it come with a double sided eyeliner like Naked 1 did when it first came out, I probably would have rushed to buy it lol, but after seeing your swatches, I think I can wait. Great review!

Hi Christine!
I was just wondering if I should get the Naked 1 or 2. I dont have either and I wanted to know which one you recomended for someone with fair skin and green eyes. I dont have any urban decay eyeshadows and I was going to buy one of the palletes with my money. Thank you!(:

Very pretty, but I have the first one and I think I think I will pass on this one, they look very similiar. I do agree I wish they would make a more cool toned one, i would love that.

I’m very pale and cool-toned (NW10-ish), and since I don’t own many eyeshadows, I really want a versatile neutral palette. Are the Naked palettes too warm-toned to look natural on my complexion? And if so, is there a more cool-toned neutral palette out there? Thanks!

by far the best review I’ve seen! your reviews are very thorough! I can’t wait to get mine in the mail!! I have the first one and I use it every single day and this one has such beautiful colors!! love it!

I received my palette today and overall I’m really happy! I have Naked 1 and have really enjoyed using it. No doubt, the two palette’s are similar so if NK1 didn’t work for you, I doubt NK2 will. Also, I am having a different experience than Christine with Tease. The texture of mine is not hard the way hers is. My brush picks up color from Tease quite easily. In fact it’s just shy of being a bit powdery. I would agree though that it’s not intensely pigmented. Mine is light/medium pigmentation though I found it nice on the eye when used with primer. So weird that yours and mine are different. I guess they need to work on consistency between lots? So far so good though. Thanks for your work Christine!

I like this one even more than the 1st. This has my fav e/s YDK & 2 of the e/s’s from the RollerGirl palette that i missed out on. Im so saving my money for this baby!

I was going to buy this, it got back in stock and I was excited. However, after looking at your swatches and review. I am going to pass. A lot of the colors, I am not so crazy for. I got Inglot shadows instead (when they were on sale) and picked out colors based off of your swatches. I got both a neutral and color 10palette. While this is more expensive than Naked 2, I feel that i will be able to use all of the colors unlike N2. A lot of Hype was for the Anniversary Palette by Urban Decay as well, I ordered it instantly and was disappointed when it arrived in the mail. I learned to not get sucked in by hype and just go with colors I know I’ll wear. If I got the palette it would be just for the brush! lol!

I’m gonna wait until January to buy this, but I will buy it. I’m a sucker, I know ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s irritating that Half Baked is in it again (I have it in BOS 2 and Naked 1) but maybe I’ll start using it for costume parties and be a bronzed statue or something…I’m excited about pistol, snakebite and booty call. Thanks for the fast post and video reviews!

Love the review, love the palette (arrived Friday, used today).

I do disagree about Yease. It is nearly the PERFECT crease color for me, and wasn’t hard to apply at all. I may be easily pleased, though. I’m also super super pale as well. I use Maybelline FIT me foundation right now in 110, to give you a clue.

My fiance also said that my first attempt at a look with this palette (tease in “wide” crease, suspect on lid, snakebite to define the crease, foxy and bootycall to highlight) was better than anything he liked when I used Naked 1, so… a plus, I guess?

I do love the repeat of Half-baked as it was my most used shade in Naked 1. Granted, that leads me into my next point which is…

Honestly, my biggest love of this palette is that there are far more shades I can use on my lid with this palette. With Naked 1 because of how pale I am, I was really reduced to Sidecar and Half-baked for my lid. With this set, I have a lot more variety! This was really important to me!

thanks for this! m getting it because I gave my Naked palette to my sister and I think I’ll be able to use the shades in this one more than the original! or I could just buy em both again! lol. Had my Naked for almost a year and I didnt make a dent on that one.

Christine – I love your site. I go here every time I want to see swatches and reviews. If I could make a suggestion: would you consider showing even more looks with the UD palettes? I love being inspired ๐Ÿ™‚ but I also think a few how-to’s or looks would be awesome.

Hi Christine!

I’ve been wanting to build an Inglot palette for a while. Naked2 seems to have a lot of shades that I’d love to have, but I don’t care for Chopper or Tease. Do you happen to know any Inglot dupes for Suspect, Pistol, Verve, or Busted? By the way, .thank you for adding the other Inglot dupes on this post!!

This is my first naked palette and it is so disappointing, colors were not spectacular, were just plain and kind of boring. I think will return it.

I finally got mine yesterday! I know it’s been one day since I’ve had it but I already love it. I have small eyelids and shimmery neutral colors make them pop and appear larger which is what I love. The only thing I hated was the fact that I already had the roller girl palette (which had the colors suspect and verve in it) Which stunk for me because it really wasn’t as exciting when I got the palette, so I gave my roller girl palette to my sis and have the NAKED 2 for myself ๐Ÿ™‚ To be honest, I really prefer the NAKED 2 more simply because I love cooler toned eyeshadows more than warmer toned ones, but again that’s my personal preference:) –Great review!!!

Hi Christine,
I’m a new follower of your blog. Thanks for writing up such great reviews!! I always use your blog as a reference point when purchasing cosmetics! I esp. found this entry to help me in deciding to purchase the Naked2 palette. I was quite torn because the colors seemed so similar. After reading this entry and reviewing the swatches, I decided not to purchase Naked2 because it’s so similar to the original palette.

Thanks again and keep doing what you do best!!

Julie

i never try both of Naked Palette..could you suggest me which one is more worth to buy? since im working as a freelance make up, i want to have a palette that can be use to any skintone.thanks

I LOVE NAKED 2. This is my new favorite palette– and trust me– that’s saying something because I have tons of shadows. I’ve been trying it out for about a month and it suits my cool tones much better than Naked 1. I still love N1 but if I could only choose one of the two I would 100% pick N2. For reference: I am NW20-25 (summer), Claire or BR20 in Chanel… Half Baked, Woodwinked, Dazzlelights.. and similar colors look terrible on me..

I caved and bought this Friday after seeing it in person. I have the original Naked, and I bought it as a “companion” pallette to my Black Pallette, as I like nude eyes with an accent of color (typically purples), but the two did not work together; both have just been sitting in a makeup bag for the better part of a year. When I saw the Naked 2 pallette, I realized this will work with my BP, and I realized that my N1 will probably work well with my Deluxe Shadows. I have light, very neutral skintone, and eyes that are almost black, so I can pretty much wear any eyecolor. This post actually encouraged me to revisit my N1 pallette, which is barely used, and I actually really like it on it’s own.

Thank you so much for such an awesome review!:) I don’t have neither of them. But I’ll buy them both though, cause I think they both has bad sites and good sites, thats why I feel I need both. I feel like, they complete each other. And I just want them both, I can’t stop my self from buying both because I just love, love, love Urban Decays Naked palettes. Well, some people might say it’s waste of money, but thats just me.. Keep buying everything, I just can’t stop. It’s a bad disease, I know, but what can I do? Anyway, really great review, I love that you show us every single eyeshadow, swatches and so on. Really detailed, great job ๐Ÿ™‚

I have Urban Decay Naked 1 – and I like it but I dont love it. I have really cool tones and the Naked 1 is too warm for me. I can use only a couple of the colours and then the rest makes me look really tired. I swatched Naked 2 – and still it’s way too warm for me. And it really looks veeery similar to the original one. I wish they’d make Naked palette that would be for cool toned people. I think it would be crazy fast selling-out product.

I don’t currently own either of the palettes, but after wanting it for SOOO long (at least the last 7 months lol), I’ve decided to cave and get one regardless the dent to my wallet. Any recommendations as to which palette to get? I don’t care much about the packaging and probably won’t use any of the darker colors.

Hi Christine! I have both pallettes and love them both, however, since I am more cool toned, I’ve found myself reaching for the Naked 2 pallette more (but, before I had it, I was perfectly content with the original, go figure!). What blush are you wearing in the full face photo on this page? It’s gorgeous on you! I’m looking for a peachy/pink blush just like that. Thanks!

@Christine (Temptalia) @Kines Aww, too bad! Whatever it is (your natural coloring or a blush), it looks so fresh and pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚
