I will finally be reviewing the much anticipated Naked 2 palette. I have the original as well so I'll be comparing them both together. This retails for $50 and comes with 12 full-size shadows as well as a double ended synthetic brush and a little deluxe sample of their lip gloss in Naked. Swatches, individual shade reviews, and dupes all down below! :)
|Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper|
Half Baked: A true gold color with a shimmery finish. This is the only repeat from the original... It's a great color but I wish it wasn't included in this palette. This is perfect for a warm lid look!
Bootycall: This is a warm version of Virgin from the original. This is a great inner corner highlight, a great brown bone highlight, and also a great shade for an all over lid look. I prefer this over Virgin on my skin tone! This is exclusive to this palette.
Chopper: Very orange-toned copper color with silver sparkles, one of the more unique shades of the palette. It feels a little crumbly (much like Sidecar from the original) to the touch but it's a nice finish, just a little more fall out prone than the other shades.
|Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol|
Snakebite: This is a bronzed color, a little lighter than Darkhorse but darker than Smog and has a bit of golden in it. Super pigmented great for both the lid and crease. Also exclusive to this palette.
Suspect: A light golden color, this is great for the lid. It's a very light color but pigmented. The finish is shimmery as well.
Pistol: A warm grey color - it's so hard to describe. This shade is very unique and does not have dupes from the original and it is also a palette exclusive!
|Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout|
YDK: Coppery brown color with a shimmery finish - has the same feel and look to Sidecar a little less warm. These are both very close colors though. It's also a little less warm then Toasted.
Busted: Kind of a bit of a plummy brown - a little like Hustle from the original but Busted is darker. This is both a great lid and crease color, and one of the darkest shimmery shade in the palette. This is also exclusive to the palette.
Blackout: Matte black shade, perfect for liner, a smokey eye, or just darkening up a look. This makes the palette so versatile!
ON TO THE DUPES!
|Snakebite, Smog, Darkhorse, Smog + Darkhorse combined|
Overall worth the price tag and a great addition to my collection. If it were between Naked 1 and Naked 2 I would pick the original. I do think Naked 2 is more daytime friendly than the original, but both are nice to have. I don't find the dupes to be that significant and I still see the palette as being unique.
The shadows are so pigmented and smooth, the only downside is when I look at it it's a bit difficult to come up with a look - the order of the shadows makes it a bit difficult. LOL. I'm just nit picking there. I hope you've found this review helpful and if you have any questions feel free to leave me a message! Also if you have any ideas for looks post them below! :)
