Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

I recently did a makeup haul and choosing a palette from the Naked collection is always a hard task. They all have such beautiful colours and it’s hard not to add them all to my basket!

After finally managing to nail it down, I chose the Naked 2, simply because I think the colours are the ones I’ll get the most use from.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette

The palette comes with six neutral matte shades, ranging from pale beige to deep smokey brown. The colors are perfect for creating an everyday natural look or a smoky eye for a night out.

It has a pale beige for highlighting and a dark brown to create a smokey look.

The beauty of the palette is that there are only 6 shades, making it ideal for those who get overwhelmed by too many shades. Sometimes less is more and that definitely defines the Naked 2!

Why Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics is a Must-Have

The shades are highly pigmented and blend seamlessly, making them easy to use for both beginners and professionals and even though there are only 6 shades, you can still create multiple looks.

The shades in the palette are perfect for every skin tone. There is very little fallout when applying, which really is a must in every eyeshadow palette, but unfortunately, not all palettes live up to it!

The shades are:

  1. Skimp: a light nude satin shade
  2. Stark: a nude pink matte shade
  3. Frisk: a warm gray matte shade
  4. Cover: a muted red-brown matte shade
  5. Primal: a muted brown matte shade
  6. Undone: a deep, smoky brown matte shade

The formula of the shadows is of the highest quality, making them highly pigmented, blendable, and long-lasting. They apply smoothly and evenly, making it easy to create a flawless eye look.

If you enjoy quality packaging, you’ll love the Naked 2 packaging. It’s sleek and compact, making it easy to carry with you on the go for touch-ups.

It comes with a mirror too, making it more convenient to apply your makeup anywhere, anytime. And since the palette is on the small size, it’s perfect for carrying along with you. It can slip neatly into your handbag!

My Thoughts

If you’re looking for a basic, quality eyeshadow palette that does what it’s supposed to do, then you’ll love the Naked 2 Basic Palette. The matte shades are practical, useful, pretty and high quality!

If you love your neutrals, you’ll love the Naked 2 Basic Palette! Basic in name, yet lovable in the description! You may find that it becomes your go-to palette, and you won’t be the first with that!

  1. Dear Hollie,

    Thanks for the great review post on Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette.

    All the 12 colours are great. Thanks for again for the informative review post and for a good recommendation. I can also see very good customer reviews at lookfantastic. Also, 20% discount is great.

    Since the Christmas is on its way I am planning to gift this Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette to my wife for sure she gonna love it.

    I was wondering whether this product is available with Amazon but when I checked the price is more expensive compared to your recommendation. Thanks!

    Wishing you much success!


    1. Thanks Paul. It is a beautiful palette and I’m sure your wife will love it! 

      Usually with beauty products I find amazon to be more expensive! 


  2. It is a real nice deal I am sure my wife love it, the colors are fantastic, and I really like neutral colors they are the best. Also it is really great to know they are not tested in animals I think this part is great, I think why they tested in animals if they are being use by persons? other think is great is the price, I think is fair and the better info for me that they ship everywhere because in my country sometimes thats is a big issue, thanks for let us know about this.

    1. I agree with you, if its for humans, test it on humans! 

      Yes, worldwide shipping is the best! 

  3. Hi there. Thank you for sharing Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review. This palette is so beautiful and I love it. The colours are very suitable for every day look just as you have said in this review.

    I think you are so right there. A rectangular shape or circular shape would have been easier to use other than the square shape. Over all the palette is worth checking out.

    1. Apart from the shape it’s a great palette and I love it! Thanks for stopping by
