Naked 2 Palette!

After coming up with tonnes of reasons why I didn't need this palette, I caved and bought it. To be honest I didn't need much persuasion. When I first heard the Naked 2 Palette was being released I wasn't too keen on purchasing. It seemed so similar to the original I didn't see the point in wasting my money. I'm glad I bought it now as I feel that I'll definitely use this more than I did the previous palette.


I'm not going to go into too much detail on the palette as I think the blogosphere is overloaded with reviews and swatches at the moment. I'm going to give you just a few reasons why I like it so much.


Naked Palette 2 comes with twelve eyeshadows, five of which are exclusive to this palette only. Half Baked is the only crossover shade between the two palettes. Pistol and Verve are my most used shades from the palette I love them. I prefer Naked 2  as it has more cool toned browns compared to the original palette that had warm browns.


This palette comes with a dual ended brush and a minature lipgloss. I really like the brush, definitely will be a nice addition to my collection. On the other hand I'd rather a primer potion came with the palette instead of  a lipgloss.I don't particularly like the applicator on this product, I guess it will come in handy in my makeup bag if I'm stuck.


Now for the packaging, I've heard so many mixed opinions on it. First and foremost I like it as it's very sturdy. I know this won't ever open in my bag and dispense shadows everywhere. The bigger mirror is a good idea. I'd only use this if I was in desperate need of a mirror while travelling or out and about. It's really not a make or break component of the palette for me. The only thing that bothers me about the tin casing is if I accidently let it drop, the palette would be end up dented. I don't want to test this theory out either.

At the end of the day it all depends on what your preferance is. If you like your warm browns stick with the original Naked Palette. If like me you like cool browns go for the Naked 2 Palette!

  4. I have the first naked palette and went and got the second and they are very similar, but I do like the new one just not sure whether it was worth the money perhaps if I didn't have the first it would be :)

    1. I totally agree! I think if both palettes were out at the same time, I'd go for the Naked 2 palette. I would wear more of the shades from this palette!! xx

  6. I really love my Naked 2, probably prefer it to the original Naked palette just because I think it suits paler skin a little better and the brush is lovely! Although I have to admit, I'm with you on having preferred the mini primer-potion, that stuff's amazing! xx

    1. I have been using this so much more than the original too... I think the shades are definitely more wearable for me:) I love the primer potion was disappointed it wasn't included with the palette. I still always have one in my makeup bag, I like the new packaging on the primer xx
