It has been a long time coming, I find it strange now that I held out for so long! In this case, I do wish I had just gone ahead and got it- the Naked 2 palette!
I do already own the first one and got it when it first came out a few years ago. It quickly became a favourite. With this palette though, I did wonder whether it could compare at all to that or whether I would care for it as much.
It only took a few swatches before I decided I could definitely make good use of it.
The first thing that is different from the first Naked palette is that you get a lipstick with it instead of a primer potion. Not having tried these particular lip glosses by Urban Decay before, I was pretty happy to try it.
The dual ended brush, although very soft, I didn't feel like it would be the best for eye shadow application. The blending side though, I do think will work better. That remains to be seen though, once I have used it a few times.
Lastly, of course, the palette itself!
Seeing the shades in the palette, they all look pretty gorgeous! I particularly liked the look of Pistol, Snakebite, Tease and Foxy. I already have Blackout in my 15 year anniversary palette so I automatically knew I loved it.
Here are the swatches!

|YDK, Busted, Blackout|
Other than that, I am most definitely impressed with this palette. I have found myself mostly gearing towards neutral colours anyway and this is a nice addition to the first Naked palette. It still gives me shades I would wear everyday but I feel like it makes up for the few shades I wished the first one had.
What do you think of this palette?
