Naked 2 Palette – Urban Decay
This isn’t an exclusive. Naked 2 has been on the market for nearly two years. I’ve heard about it. I’ve read about it. It took me this long to buy the bloody thing and now I have to say I absolutely 100% love it! The case is hard to protect the glorious treasures of 12 Taupe and Greige neutrals (don’t worry I didn’t know what greige meant either – it means unbleached and un-dyed – I should have known that but I didn’t) Anyhoo the Naked 2 comes with a double-ended, cruelty-free Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush. You can feel the quality and softness of the brush when you apply your shadow … and onto the shadow … 12 shades to choose from ranging from light to dark and matte to sparkly, but not too sparkly. Like all of Urban Decay’s products each shadow has it’s own unique name and they are; Foxy, Half Baked, Booty Call, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout – they sound like a typical night out in Temple Bar, Dublin! You can go as neutral or as dramatic as you like, layering textures and shades to perfect a smokey eye effect if you so wish or just keeping it simple with an all over colour. I wore it every day last week and can see myself wearing it everyday this week unless I stop myself … my other shadows will get jealous after all. The palette also comes with a mini tube of Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Naked which cools and plumps – it’s kind of refreshing actually.
If you have yet to step into the light of Urban Decay’s Naked 2 Palette, I will say but this … do it! It’s about €45 or you can get it for better value in duty free if you are taking a trip or you know someone who is. I think I paid about €36 on an Aer Lingus flight but don’t quote me on that.
