Hello, gorgeous ladies.Today I am going to review the much hyped Naked 2 eyeshadow palette by urban decay.If you are someone who knows even a little about make-up, you would have definitely heard about this palette! The most anticipated product for every makeup junkie has 12 perfect shades of eyeshadow ranging from neutral shades to dramatic shades, shimmery shades to matte shades, warm shades to cool shades and everything in between.
Basic Info about Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette
What does the brand claim?
You demanded “MORE NAKED!”—and Naked2 delivers. From luminous shades with shimmer and sparkle to the smoothest mattes imaginable, Naked2 is packed with 12 never-boring taupe-hued neutrals.The case has an art-school inspired look with a hinged lid—taupe metal with embossed chocolate brown artwork. It’s smooth, modern and cool to the touch—a real tactile experience.
Naked2 includes a professional-quality, cruelty-free double-ended shadow/blending brush.
Foxy (cream bisque matte), Half Baked (golden bronze shimmer), Bootycall (cork shimmer), Chopper (copper shimmer w/silver micro-glitter), Tease (creamy pale brown matte), Snakebite (dark bronze shimmer), Suspect (pale golden beige shimmer), Pistol (light grayish brown shimmer), Verve (oyster shimmer), YDK (cool bronze shimmer), Busted (deep brown shimmer) and Blackout (blackest black matte).

How to use: Apply eyeshadow on the eyelid with the brush that comes with the palette. The best way to apply would be to start from the center of the eyelid and slowly move to the crease.
My experience with the Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette
It is a perfect palette as it covers matte shades, shimmery shades, and sparkly shades.It starts from a flat nude eyeshadow called foxy to shimmery shades and ends at perfect black eyeshadow called blackout which is perfect for a smokey eye.Blackout has great pigmentation and almost feels like charcoal as it is really dark. The Matte shades are Foxy, Tease, Blackout, the neutral ones are called Bootycall, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, Busted and the Glittery shades are called Half Baked, Chopper, and YDK.My personal favorite shades out of the 12 are chopper and half-baked.Chopper is a shimmery copper color but the drawback to it is that is prone to falling out.The palette being so famous and expensive is expected to stay for a long time and not fall-out.Half baked is a brownish shade with copper shimmer which has a smooth texture.The naked 1 palette also includes the half-baked shade. A long mirror and a 2 sided brush are also included in the palette which has soft bristles.The eyeshadow shades are highly pigmented and are the last longing.It comes with a strong and sturdy packaging of a metal box.

Would I recommend this product?
All in all, The palette is of good quality and covers both warm and cool tones.Some intense and dramatic shades are also included which makes the palette perfect for all kinds of looks.So I would rate this 4/5 and I would totally recommend the product.Although if you already own Naked 1 palette, then you may not buy this because the shades are somewhat similar in both the palettes. Plus, Lorac Pro Palette is definitely better!
