Urban Decay Naked 2 review and swatches

There was a time when the Urban Decay naked palettes were really hyped. So I needed to find out what the hype is all about. I decided to get the naked 2 palette. Maily because it has a matte black eyeshadow (wich is an essential in a palette in my opinion).

Sadly the font on my palette is a little crooked but oh well ….. the inside matters of course 😉

Product information:

  • It retails for 54.00 $ (urbandecay.com) or 53.00 € (urbandecay.de). That is about 4.50 $ per eyeshadow.
  • It contains of 12 eyeshadows (3 matte, 9 shimmer)
  • Total Net Wt. / Poids Net. 15,6 g / 0,55 oz.
  • So all in all you pay about 3.46 $ per gram or 98.18 $ per ounce

Swatches:

Formula:

I love the formula of these eyeshadows! Pigmented and really easy to blend….. Everything you want in an eyeshadow. Some of the shimmery shadows are not as intense (e.g. copper shade) but all in all it’s a really nice palette.

Pros:

  • Most of the shades have good pigmentation
  • Super easy to blend
  • Really creamy
  • It has an amazing matte black (which is an essential in a palette in my opinion)

Cons:

  • Price (but normal for high end)
  • Only 3 matte shades (white, light brown, black)

Final thoughts:

I do not like the fact that this palette only has 3 matte shades. I wish there was one more matte crease shade that is deeper than the light brown (which is more like a transition shade) and the black.

All in all I really like this palette but nowadays I’m more a fan of warm toned eyeshadows so I don’t use it a lot anymore.

If you are on a budget I would say you’re not missing out on this palette. I’m a huge fan of Morphe Brushes eyeshadows and Makeup geek eyeshadows so I probably wouldn’t suggest this palette to you. But you definitely notice that the quality is better than e.g. Morphe and Makeup Geek (more creamy, blend nicer).

If you don’t mind spending a little more money for eyeshadows I definitely think they are really nice (if you are into these colors).
