Naked 2 Review and Swatches

Naked Palette Swatched | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comI have been dreaming of this Naked 2 palette for what seems like forever!  I finally got it this year for Christmas!  I am not going to lie, for several days I didn’t even use it, I just stared at its beauty!  I didn’t want to mess it up by using it.  Since then I have gotten over that and have been loving using this beautiful palette.  I know that since this palette was released in 2011 there are probably a million or more reviews and swatches already, but I just really want to add my own anyway. 😉

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($54.00 each shade is 0.05 oz each) contains twelve eyeshadows and a dual ended brush. (The brush is good; it is just like Urban Decay’s full-sized brushes: same size, feel, density, and softness.)

  • Naked Palette Swatched | lookingjoligood.wordpress.com
    My skin is so pale that Foxy doesn’t even show up it just blends in. Haha!

    Foxy is a pale yellow cream with a matte finish. It’s on the sheer side and a bit powdery. I use it as an underneath base all over the lid or for highlighting the brow.

  • Half Baked is a copper with a golden shimmer. It’s part of the permanent range and is also in the Naked 1 palette.
  • Booty Call is a creamy white/beige champagne  with a satin finish (very similar to Virgin from the original Naked palette) . It’s also similar to MAC Brule as well as Wet N Wild’s Creme Brulee.
  • Chopper is a medium metallic rose gold with silver micro glitters. This shade is permanent. Unfortunately, I notice a bit of sparkly fall out with this shade.
    Tease is a matte mushroom taupe with purple undertones. The pigmentation is perfect for a transition crease shade.  Compared to the other shadows it is a bit drier, but it is still great and can easily be built up.  I absolutely love this shadow. I can already tell that I am going to be getting a lot of use out of this shadow.
  • Naked Palette Swatched | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comSnakebite is satin deep bronze with golden shimmer. It has a really buttery texture with excellent pigmentation. Pretty much gorgeous!
  • Suspect is a soft satin light taupe with golden flecks. It has great pigmentation.
  • Pistol is a satin warm steel grey. This is a pretty shade, but probably my least favorite, I tend to like more cool and neutral shades and this one is definitely warmer. The texture is wonderful, soft and smooth.  I have been branching out more recently to do warmer eye looks, so I do plan to play around with this one a bit more.
  • Verve is a pale beige-gray with a pink tinge. This shade was in the Rollergirl palette. Um, Gorgeous!!!  This is one of my favorite and most used shades in this palette.
  • Naked Palette Swatched | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comYDK is a warm, coppery reddish toasty taupe with coppery micro glitters. The pigmentation is awesome, and it has a buttery smooth texture. I can’t decide if I like Verve or YDK the best.  Both are absolutely beautiful!  When applied to the lids, both give a beautiful sparkle to the eyes.
  • Busted is a plummy dark brown burgundy-tinted, deep brown with warm, golden undertones. It has a soft, frosted satin finish. The color payoff is good and the texture is smooth. I tend to get a bit of fall out with this shade, but I think darker shades always tend to have more noticeable fallout. (I actually love to use this shadow to fill in my eyebrows.  The slight sparkle is perfect for making it look just like my eyebrow hair.)
  • Blackout is a really intense, deep dark black with a matte finish. It has really great payoff and goes on very black.  Be so careful when applying, the fall out is CrAzY!.

Matte shades: Foxy, Tease, Blackout,

Satin shades: Booty Call, Snake Bite, Suspect, Pistol, Busted

Glitter/metallic shades:Half Baked, Verve, Chopper, YDK,

Girls!  I have a whole new respect for all of these bloggers/vloggers that take awesome photos of their swatches.  Good job ladies, it is a lot harder than it looks!

Do you have the Naked 2 Palette?  What do you think?  Which is your favorite shade?  Do you own any of the other Naked Palettes?  Which do you have?  Which is your favorite? Do you recommend any others over the Naked 2?

  1. The Naked 2 Palette is so great! It’s definitely one of my favourites. Foxy is the same with me when I swatched it, it just blends right in! Great post & lovely swatches! I personally don’t think there is anything wrong with reviewing and swatching a palette that has been around for years, it’s always going to be new to someone! 🙂

  2. Fab post!! I’ve been wanting a naked palette for so long, but have no idea which one to get 😛 I’m was thinking the Naked Smoky Eye palette. Would you recommend this one too? The colours look right up my street 🙂 xo

    1. I definitely recommend this one! I love it and have created so many different yet beautiful eye looks with it! The shadows are smooth and pigmented. I also highly recommend the Lorac Pro palette. If you can’t decide between the Naked palettes, it has a larger variety of shades, not just neutrals. I love them both, but as much as I love the Naked2, I’m more drawn to the Lorac Pro.
