creasing

not creasing

the shades apply and blend very well, and for my fair skintone, this selection offers solid base, highlight, crease, transition, and outer v/lining options

- Sephora User

included with the palette is an urban decay lip junkie lipgloss in the color "naked" and a double ended brish featuring one side that is perfect for packing on eyeshadow and the other side is perfect for blending and adding color into the crease and outer corner

- Sephora User

staying power

longlasting

i also found that these shadows are really long wearing without a primer, and will last all day long with both the ud primer potion and the too faced shadow insurance (my fav shadow primer)

- Sephora User

these neutral colors can be worn day or night and like ud eye shadows, they are long lasting and very pigmented

- Sephora User

blendability

blends well

the pigmentation and blendability of this product is perfection

- Sephora User

it's perfect for adding some sparkle to a (semi) matte look, but can provide excellently on its own if you're willing to put in the effort to blend the shadows well

- Sephora User

consistency

creamy

i like ud shadows because of the smooth, almost creamy texture and saturated colors so i jumped at the chance to have this collection of neutral shades

- Ulta User

all the colors blend really well together and don't have a chalky texture

- Sephora User

fallout

does not have fallout

there's hardly any fallout and they're wonderful to blend together and create smokey eye looks

- Sephora User

pigmentation

sheer

it's super versatile - good balance of mattes, sheers, shimmers, and bolds

- Sephora User

the little naked gloss is just a peachy bonus - mine stayed on almost all day today and was translucent enough not to compete with my bolder eye choice

Perfect!

I couldn't be happier with my Naked2 palette. I own the original Naked palette and haven't used it since I got this. I am sure after the newness of this palette wears off, I will start combining shadows from both palettes to create looks. The reason I love this palette so much is that it is much cooler toned than the original Naked. I have warm undertones and can wear darker eye looks, but I just don't prefer it. The original Naked palette is great in terms of quality and the colors are beautiful, but I don't often use the ones on the right side of the palette because they are so dark. Even the darker shades of the Naked 2 are on the subtler side. One thing I really love are the grey/ silver shades. Verve on the lid and pistol in the crease are absolutely beautiful, but not too over the top. I am so glad they included these colors as there wasn't anything like it in the original Naked palette and it will be nice not to have to pack these colors in singles when I travel. This really is an all-inclusive palette. As always, the pigmentation and texture of the shadows are great. The sizes are also generous- you will get years of use from this single palette if you remember that the shadows are pigmented os a little goes a very long way. The lip gloss is lovely (pretty, natural color, not too sticky, and long lasting). I think the mini primer potion is a better idea for an eyeshadow palette, but I have plenty of primer so it isn't too big of a deal for me. One thing that really surprised me was the quality of the brush included with the set- the bristles are compact, soft, and yield beautiful eye looks. If you are just starting out and don't have any other eyeshadow brushes, all you will really need is a fluffy brush to blend out your crease color. The crease brush on this dual ended brush is perfect for applying color, but the bristles are too compact to use for blending in my opinion. Also, my take on the controversial packaging: I love the hard case. I don't find it difficult to open and close and like that it is more durable/ easier to clean than the casing of the original Naked palette. Overall, this is a great palette. If I didn't already have the Naked palette, I would purchase this one and have no need to have the other. Nothing against the original version, the colors in this palette just fit better with my preferences. « less

looooooooooooove ittttttttttt!!!!

i love love love love love this product! i have never been so excited to give any product such a glowing review! i initially backed away from this palette because sometimes you hear a lot of hype about something and it ends up just being a disappointment. i also don't like that many of the UD palettes consist of the same super glittery shadows under a different name (compare the alice in wonderland palette to every palette prior). BUT, i decided to go ahead and purchase this anyway for a friend of mine who has a scarce eye shadow collection. LET ME TELL YOU: the moment i laid my eyes on the palette in sephora (i never trust the way a product looks from an online photo), i new instantly i had to buy it for myself! all my prior inhibitions and doubts were immediately wiped away and i made no hesitation to pick up 2 palettes, one for my friend and one for myself. =Dmy favorite characteristic about this product is that FINALLY, UD created a palette that consists of various finishes. if i had to classify them, i would say they are matte, shimmer and of course, the inevitable uber glittery finish. as everyone else has mentioned, this is a perfect day to night product, equipped with neutrals and mattes and dark shimmers to dramatize the eyes for any evening occasion. you can accomplish countless looks with these shadows and without a doubt, they are easily buildable and blendable. i'm a little tan thanks to the summer sun, so currently, NAKED is a great shade to wash over my lid before i put on any other shadow. i use BUCK to emphasize my crease during the day. VIRGIN is unique in that it is like a shimmer/sheer, yet has a chalky/matte quality. it's a good brow or inner corner highlight for the day. HALF BAKED & SIDECAR are good highlights for the night time and pack a little more punch because they are more glittery (SIDECAR is so glittery, the glitter falls off your lid and onto your face...). SMOG through GUNMETAL are great for a more dramatic effect. my personal favorites right now are HUSTLE and GUNMETAL. GUNMETAL, especially, because it truly is a perfect shade of gunmetal, not quite black, not quite blue, not quite silver but a little bit of each. i feel like such a vixen when i wear it! ;) FYI, CREEP is nearly black...comparable to OIL SLICK.there is plenty more to be said, but i think you all get the gist of it by now... =)if they do end up ceasing production of this palette (it is not yet considered a limited edition), i hope they add the exclusve colors to the eye shadow line so i can purchase them again and again.oh and one more thing--they're all full sized eyeshadows! that's over $170 worth of shadows for $44....ahhhhhhhh! need i say more? run out and get one NOW!!!! « less

Comparison: N1 vs. N2.

In my opinion, this one is better than the first! There is more variety in this palette than the first. The first had more dark shades than anything else, and this one has light, medium, and dark shades that allow for naked eyes or more dramatic.There is more of a color range in this one, too. In addition, the first only had two mattes, which were both crease colors more than anything. I prefer the fact that this palette has matte highlight, crease, and darker matte option.The packaging, I think, is an improvement. I don't understand how people say this one looks cheap when the first one is made out of *CARDBOARD*. This case is sleek and clean looking, and is easier to keep clean. In addition, this is a more secure closure since it snaps shut. The mirror is larger, which is nice if you are on the go with the palette. The size is similar to the first, but it is slightly heavier, but it's not like you're lifting weights with a makeup palette.The addition goodies weren't what I purchased the palette for at all. $50 for 12 full sized shadows is a good deal already. The gloss didn't show up on my lips as anything more than a bit of shimmer and gloss. The scent is mint with a hint of vanilla. It smells like a Cert, honestly. It's not a bad scent for those who don't mind that type of scent/flavor. It's on the thicker side, and isn't too sticky, but as it wears off it starts to feel tackier than when first applied. As for the brush, I find it doesn't do anything for me. The colors don't show up as well with this brush, and it flicks around a lot of product. I use non-synthetic brushes, and I pat the product on, which produces the best result.Shades:Foxy - Extremely light yellow-tinged cream color. Matte. This is on the sheerer side and almost blends into my skin color (light to light-medium yellow tone) when swatched. I actually really like this because it brightens/lightens my brow bone, but doesn't look so harsh. No similar shade in N1.Half Baked - A repeated from the original, and appears in many other UD palettes. Some may be disappointed by the repeat, but this is one of my favorites! It's super smooth and pigmented. It's a gorgeous, shimmering bronzed-gold. Exact repeat of N1.Booty Call - This is a pale-light, shimmering peach. This is super smooth and quite pigmented, which at first swatch I thought it wasn't. This is a great brightening shade for the inner corner, brow, or lid. Most similar to Virgin in N1, but Virgin is cooler, ashy, and lighter with less pigment.Chopper - Shimmering fawn/coppered brown with silver micro-glitter. GORGEOUS. Super pigmented. I use this wet, and it looks great with Booty Call and Snake Bite. No dupe in N1. Sidecar is significantly more bronzed-beige with silverish sheen.Tease - A light brown with a greyish-purple cast. Matte. This is another sheerer one that needs to be worked with a bit to build up. I use this mostly as a crease or outer corner color, but doesn't work with all the shades in the palette like Chopper, Half Baked, etc. Looks a little weird with the warmer shades of the palette. No N1 dupe, but would look great with Sin, Toasted, and Hustle from N1 due to its undertone. A more pigmented version of this shade would be MAC Quarry.Snake Bite - One of my favorite shades! Pigmented and smooth. The shade is a shimmering metallic bronze. This has been compared to Smog and Dark Horse from N1, but to me those are more gold where this has more of a bronze-orange tone. It has a richer look and dimension, IMO.Suspect - A very light, shimmering golden-beige. Very smooth. This shade makes a great lid color for a very neutral/naked look. For those with darker skin, might even work as an inner corner or browbone shade. No N1 dupe. Sin is more pink champagne and Sidecar is darker and bronzed.Pistol - Light-medium, shimmering grey-brown. This does look brown more than grey, but the grey tone is definitely apparent. Smooth, but felt I needed to build a bit to get an even color. Love using this to create a smoky eye with Tease, Verve, and Blackout. No N1 dupe. Gunmetal is cooler, glittered, and has a blue tone. Pistol has much more brown.Verve - Pigmented, shimmering oyster, which is essentially a light, silverish/grey brown. No N1 dupe.YDK - Hands down favorite of the palette! Pigment rich, shimmering metallic! The shadow is a little chunky looking, but applies smoothly. I pat it down rather than sweep. This is a gorgeous bronze color with much more of a purple base. Most similar to Toasted from N1, but WAY more gorgeous and dimensional.Busted - A darkened brown with purple tones. This is a shimmer, but it's not as sparkly as some of the others. Great pigment. Almost identical to Hustle from N1, but Busted is darker and a little less purple. This is what I was hoping Hustle would be.Blackout - Matte, pigmented black. Can be used as a liner, mixed with other colors to deepen, or to create more depth, etc.While some of the colors require more work than others, that's no different than what I found with N1. Overall, I find this palette has more of a range. The colors ARE pigmented if used correctly. They are soft texture, so too much blending will blend them away. Using a brush that grabs the product without absorbing is the best option for getting pigment without fallout. Using too much primer actually inhibits wear. And no, N1 and N2 are not dupes. They do complement each other very well. Both aren't essential, but are nice. My personal preference is the sequel! « less

Chalky texture, odd colors

Yes, it sounds like a great idea in theory and it's tempting for those of us who are tired or or can't easily wear shadows with a lot of shimmer (or worse, glitter) in them.But these colors have a huge amount of fallout, feel and look chalky upon application and are harder to blend than even cheap, drugstore shadows. I'm not sure why this is, UD is usually a decent choice for any type of product range. But these colors aren't "velvety" they are chalky and thick, even when applied very lightly, with fingers or a brush.The colors are kind of "off" too. The first color in the palette is a weird pinky white, the second is a very yellow color that has so much red undertone in it that it's unwearable for most people. The middle two colors are more neutral in color and undertone and make nice crease or neutral lid colors, but again, they are extremely chalky.The two darker colors are good in theory, especially the black, which isn't a true black, it's like a mix of very dark brown and charcoal, so there's enough color to make impact like black without being too harsh.Trying to use the darker two colors as a liner, I was also disappointed. It's not possible to use them wet and dry there is so much fallout even after blending on the back of your hand with a very fine brush that it's nearly impossible to neatly line the eye.I also didn't feel like any of these colors had any lasting power and I am someone who has normal to dry lids and doesn't ever need a primer. If something actually is designed to last, I can usually wear it all day without fade or transfer. Not these colors.Bottom line: It might work for some people, but I'd stick with other matte palettes or choose one that has a mix of matte and shimmer that has a better texture. « less

My Must Have!

This is my ultimate favorite palette. I've had it for a month now and have gotten to experiment enough with it to know that I'll never go without it. I've never had a creasing problem and they last all day. I'm 14 and I think this palette is very appropriate for school and my job. I recommend this palette to everyone. I thought I'd leave a very detailed review below for those skeptical about buying.Packaging: The tin case of this palette is very sturdy. The color also fully suits this palette since the eye shadows are beige/taupe based with a metallic finish. The full sized mirror is great. The only thing I don't like about the palette is, when I open it, the mirror falls back. This can be very annoying when I do my eye makeup, so I have to lean the back against a mirror when using. This may just be my palette, but I was very disappointed by this. The dual ended brush is surprisingly really good quality..Eyeshadows:FOXY- a matte yellow/cream color. This makes a great highlight. I wasn't a huge fan at first, but as I used it, I really liked it.HALF BAKED- a golden-bronze shade with a very shimmer finish. This color works well as an everyday lid color and brings out blue eyes. It is very shimmery though and I have had slight fallout with it. It is one of my favorite colors, and I love it.BOOTYCALL- A light pink/peach shimmer. It's great as a highlight or a very light lid color. It was one of my favorite colors in this palette. A very beautiful color with a very soft texture.CHOPPER- A peachy penny copper with glitter. This color turned out very orange on me. The downside with this color was that there is just slightly too much glitter for me. I still use this color, but not daily.TEASE- Matte muted pale brown. This is one of my favorite colors in this palette! I use it with my Naked Basics and it looks wonderful. Matte eyeshadows require blending though. Perfect lid or base color.SNAKEBITE- A Deep metallic bronze. This is one of my FAVORITES! I love it. It's the perfect crease color for me. It is absolutely perfect. If I didn't have this palette, I would have bought this color on it's own, and probably will when I run out.SUSPECT- A pale slightly golden shimmering beige. Probably my number one favorite color in this palette. I am in LOVE with it! It's the perfect lid color and looks amazing paired with Snakebite. I will be buying this shadow on it's own soon.PISTOL- A very light gray with subtle gold shimmer. This color is a very nice gray color. Perfect for a classic smokey eye. This shadow doesn't have as much pigment as the others, though. It has to be packed on in more than on layer, but if it's used in a classic smokey eye, this isn't a big deal since it's meant to be well blended.VERVE- "Oyster with shimmering finish". It's not quite silver, not quite white A very beautiful color. Goes well with Pistol. Has a metallic finish, like most colors in this palette.YDK- A cool shimmering bronze. It has minimal pink undertones with glitter. One of my favorites in this palette, but I have experienced fall out. This actually looks good for a daytime look or a night time look. If you don't like glitter, you may not like this color, but I love it.BUSTED- Deep metallic brown with plum undertones. This color compliments most colors in this palette and works amazingly in the crease. It's very blendable.BLACKOUT- Matte black. Just perfect. It works great as an eyeliner and in the crease for dark eye looks.Overall:These eyeshadows are richly pigmented and all have very unique color. I have NEVER had a creasing problem with this. A few eyeshadows have fallout, but when I'm careful, it's very minimal. I always use a primer to ensure my shadow will last, and they ALL last all day long. The shadows have such amazing quality and color payoff, and never crease.WOULD I RECOMMEND IT TO YOU?: If you're a minimalist, I think you'll love this. It's very appropriate for school, work, and night time. If you're a makeup junkie (like me), you'll be overjoyed to own this highly anticipated palette. If you're a beginner, you may want to learn the makeup basics with a simpler palette (UD Naked Basics is amazing too, also for those favoring mattes).Overall, I think this palette is a staple. Every girl needs a neutral palette and this is it. I love it, and recommend it to everyone. After experimenting with this, I will be buying Naked very soon. « less
