There was a lot of hype centered around the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. My curiosity was getting the better of me so I researched the palette online an even paid it a visit at Sephora. The palette is $50 which can be a pretty big hit for any item at one time. I saw the palette as an investment in my beauty future and so you can guess what I did next. Yes I bought the palette. Let's face it the palette really is worth the price, the shadows are great for everyday, and they are just downright beautiful ( I even had James Blunt's song Beautiful running through my head).
Now this brings us to the Naked Palette. Well I purchased it for the same reasons that I purchased the Naked 2 Palette. Honestly I bought it because my Naked 2 Palette was lonely and needed a friend. Ok seriously I bought it because I had a gift card and I believe the palette chose me. I am a collector of makeup and felt I needed it for my colossal collection.
Believe it or not I have had the palette since Christmas and today's the first day I used it. I know tsk, tsk, but I have a lot of makeup and sometimes forget what I have. In comparing these two palettes the Naked Palette has more taupe like colors whereas the Naked 2 Palette has more bronze like colors. Both palettes contain 12 beautiful shadows, they are matte and shimmer, and they are by Urban Decay so you know they are awesome.
