It's Here...

Well, I'm not going to pretend to be the one breaking the news to you... but there's a new Naked Palette from Urban Decay!!! I ordered mine last week, and it arrived at my house today- which I thought was surprisingly fast. This isn't going to be a review on the palette... I'm against reviewing stuff I haven't used (makes no sense). But what's the harm in sharing a few pictures?

The palette came in a box that had pics of all the shadows on the back... within that box was this mini Lip Junkie gloss, and wrapped up in the tissue paper in a little plastic baggie was a mini 24/7 pencil in Eldorado. As you'll see in the pic below, it comes with a double ended brush- one side to pack on the shadow, and another to blend it out. Similar feel, but not quite as soft & dense as the Sigma Bunny Travel Set that I posted a review video on today.

When I DO choose to review video this palette, it's going to center around comparisons with the original Naked palette and other palettes that I have. Because let's think of it this way... the first Naked palette is like this palette's successful big sister. She went through school, everybody liked her, and she left a good reputation for the next sibling. She got good grades (reviews) and they both come from a good family (Urban Decay). I have no issue with the quality of Urban Decay shadows. And as you can tell from this picture... the swatches don't disappoint.

So the colors look good, but just HOW good is it? Is it worth the $50? Is it different enough from the original? How many different looks can you come up with? If you don't already have the first Naked palette, which should you buy? These are some of the questions I'll be answering in an upcoming video after I use this for awhile. Thanks for reading!


Daily Nuggets...
  • I have spent too much time in front of a computer today.
  • Wondering how long it will be before Cupcake tries to shred the tissue paper my Naked 2 palette came in.
  • My t-zone doesn't feel the least bit oily after 15 hours of makeup wear. (trying to remember what products I wore today...)
  • My sister JUST tweeted a link to a blog post on the story of why we are Poof & Pup! Let's go read it!

  2. That was fast! I got mine today, too. I'm excited, but I'm debating on waiting to open it on Christmas...since it was a gift from my husband. The conversation: "Hey babe. Thanks for my Christmas gift." Him: "Oh, I got you something?" Me: "Yeah, I just ordered it.. :)" Can't wait to see the looks you come up with!

  8. Got mine, too! Can't wait to see what you think of it. I absolutely LOVE the first NAKED palette and wear it almost every day.

  9. I don't know if it's just me but I think it's freaking weird that they have half baked in both palettes when I think it's the weakest shade.

  15. Cant wait to see your review! Personally I dont think Im going to buy the palette just because I still havent made a a dent in my first one and I think I actually like those colors more (less shimmer) :)

  34. My brothers were 12 and 10 when I was born. My oldest and I really bonded like you and Pup. I called my bro Bubby and he called me Seester (sister). I miss him terribly - he passed away 2 1/2 years ago from cancer.

  38. I love the naked palette's but i personally prefer the first one! I think they both have really nice colour but i prefer the packaging of the naked palette. The nakes palette 2 has kindof like a tin packaging which i don't like...

    I really liked your review though! Great work, nice blog! http://strawberryribbons.blogspot.com/

  40. I can't wait to purchase this palette (will be my first palette also!). But, do you know when/if Ulta is going to get this in stock?

  41. Emily did you see that snakebite on this palette and smog look almost exactly alike? also I noticed that busted on the naked 2 palette and hustle on the naked palette are the same, exact color! how could urban decay get away with that? Just wanted to point that out to you and asked if you had also seen it.
