Yes, yes...surprise, surprise, you all saw this coming didn't you? haha. Before I got this palette, I have continuously tried to convince myself that I don't need this because I already have the first one and I'm not sure if I'll get that much use out of the cooler toned browns. But I have officially changed my mind now and although I didn't personally spend my pretty pennies on this thing, I still want to say that it is worth the splurge and I do not regret it one bit.
The lipgloss gives a minty tingly feeling to the lips and goes on a tad too sticky for my liking - but please note that I am not a lipgloss girl so it takes quite a bit in order to satisfy me with any gloss product. I guess, I'll just say this is average and although it does appear to have a nice tint when swatched on my hand...the color does not show up on my pigmented lips.
Warm tones vs Cool tones: I don't have a preference for one over the other because they both give you completely different looks. Having both palettes expand my collection of neutrals that are amazing in quality as well
Soft fuzzy velvet cardboard vs Heavy metal packaging: Love the light weight and easy magnetic closure of the first naked palette, I'm also a sucker for soft fuzzy things - so I do like the first packaging better (aside from the fact that it collects dust way too easily). But the second one is very sturdy and great for travelling.
Primer Potion vs Lip Gloss: given a choice, I'd take the primer potion any day...I'm not a lip gloss girl as mentioned before so I really don't care for it (plus it doesn't show up on my lips) but it's good to be able to try more urban decay products without spending full price
The Brushes: I personally prefer softer and fuller brushes so I don't really adore the brushes included in the palettes, but they are nice to have. Naked2 will obviously win here with the duo ended brush - more bang for your buck.
My Personal Favourites:
- Naked Palette: Sin, Buck, Dark Horse, Toasted, Gunmetal
- Naked2 Palette: Chopper, Tease, Pistol, YDK, Busted
Naked Palette Swatches
the shade "Naked" from the original palette seems to be a defect for me, no color/pigmentation or
powder comes off the pan no matter how hard I try (this explains for the weird and awkward
space between the 2nd and 4th swatch lol)

P.S Expect a tutorial coming because it's a makeup artist recommended everyday/daytime look! <3 And sorry for the slower updates because I just finished my finals and I'm trying to get the most out of my short summer holidays lol. I hope you guys are all having a good one and I'll see you in the next post! :)
