HIGH Maintenance: Let’s Get Naked…Again!
Urban Decay recently debuted their NAKED2 eyeshadow palette, the sequel to the famous NAKED palette! The new palette has 12 GORGEOUS, neutral shades like its predecessor with 5 new ones and a repeat of the shimmery gold shadow, HALF BAKED, except this one comes with the LIP JUNKIE lip gloss. The chic and modern packaging features a gray metal with a hinged top that’s reminiscent of an art school case with NAKED2 in bold, brown, embossed letters compared to the NAKED palette, which features a beautiful chocolate suede case with the word, NAKED, in big, bold gold letters. Both cases have a very luxurious look and feel to them – a bit different from Urban Decay’s “beauty with an edge” aesthetic.
The NAKED palette contains 12 x 0.05 oz. eyeshadows and a miniature-sized Primer Potion of 0.13 fl. oz. However, the most exciting thing is that Urban Decay provides you with twelve full-size eyeshadows, which are normally sold at $17 and it includes the Good Karma Shadow Brush, which retails at $26, so, excluding the travel size primer potion, this palette has a value of $230!
Both palettes allow you to experiment with varying looks such as the classic “office appropriate”, a seductive, smoky look or sexy, summertime bronze. The shadows look stunning on everyone and you really get a bang for your buck with both palettes. The shades are high quality, highly pigmented and smooth going on the lids. Do you really need both? Not really. But for the makeup junkies out there, you may want to add both to your collection. What say you?
