Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

It was one of the most anticipated sequels of the decade, Urban Decay Naked 2 follows in the footsteps of the Naked palette, (straight up - the world's best-selling palette of all time). This Urban Decay eyeshadow palette is filled with 12 pigment-rich, taupe and greige neutral eyeshadows, including FIVE EXCLUSIVE NEW shades. Feast your eyes on shades ranging from pale to deep, matte to sparkly. This collection lets you achieve many neutral looks, smoky dramatic eyes, and everything in between. Let's just say there's a whole new way to get Naked! The case has an art-school inspired look with hinged lid taupe metal with embossed chocolate brown artwork. It's smooth, modern and cool to the touch - a real tactile experience. Plus, palette also features a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush (exclusive to this palette). 

  • Shade Descriptions:
    - Foxy: Cream Bisque Matte
    - Half Baked: Golden Bronze Shimmer
    - Bootycall: Cork Shimmer
    - Chopper: Copper Shimmer W/Silver Micro-Glitter
    - Tease: Creamy Pale Brown Matte
    - Snakebite: Dark Bronze Shimmer
    - Suspect: Pale Golden Beige Shimmer
    - Pistol: Light Grayish Brown Shimmer
    - Verve: Oyster Shimmer
    - YDK: Cool Bronze Shimmer
    - Busted: Deep Brown Shimmer
    - Blackout: Blackest Black Matte.  

  • The Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette is much more cool toned than the original Naked palette, and it contains a wider selection of lighter shades which I love as I feel it’s more flexible to use on lot's of different looks, I definitely love this palette, but my heart steers more towards the warmer, more bronze Naked palette as those colours tend to make my blue eyes pop. But this is such a beautiful palette as I love that it contains three matte shades; all of which are staple shades you could use for any and every makeup look.. a highlight or base shade, a crease shade and an eyeliner shade. You also have the the gorgeous shimmers and the stunning glitter of chopper to create many different looks. My favourite shades from the palette would have to be; Half baked, Chopper and YDK although I honestly love every single shade. I love using this palette as the weather gets warmer and it just looks perfect with bronzer and a neutral lip.

As with all the Naked Palettes this is available for £38.50 from Urban

Inside the box -
The Wet Brush (Full size) painlessly removes knots and tangles from hair. Featuring thin, strong and flexible Intelliflex™ bristles to glide through any type of hair, the detangling brush has SofTips™ to massage the scalp and stimulate circulation at the follicle. It's Firm enough to banish knots yet flexible enough to be kind to your hair and scalp, the bristles are designed to bounce back to their original form after every stroke, which helps to reduce hair breakage and damage. The versatile hair brush can also be used on dry hair, wigs and extensions. I love these brushes I only had the squirt for travelling, so am happy to have a full size as my daughter's hair is past her waist and bath times can be a nightmare without this brush! Just wished I'd got a pink one, but I won't complain! 
Liftactive Moisturiser – I adore Vichy products and this 15ml pot is a great sample size. This moisturiser has been specially formulated to firm and tone the skin.

It exfoliates, revitalises and delivers hydration, so its a great all round mask. This mask is really good, it really brightens my skin when it's feeling a bit bleugh!
