Review & Swatches: Urban Decay NAKED2 Palette

     As most of you know, when Urban Decay released it's first Naked Palette about two years ago, it sold out so fast that everybody and their mother was either waiting for it, scouring the stores to find it, or even going on eBay to purchase the product, even if it meant paying more for it than it's retail price.  Ahh... the magic of a makeup palette. So when Urban Decay announced the release of it's much-anticipated sequel, NAKED2, I had to order it right away to get my hands on it! I'm glad I did too as the first shipment sold out quickly.  Naked2 features twelve shades of eyeshadow and also includes an exclusive double-ended eyeshadow brush along with a travel size  Lip Junkie lipgloss in the color (what else?) Naked. Here is my review of the new Urban Decay Naked2 Palette:

Price: $50

Where to Get it: As of right now, this palette is only available at Urban Decay. It should be released to
                             Sephora sometime in January of 2012.

-A mix of neutral colors that are very versatile and pigmented.
-Great value for 12 shades of eyeshadow plus the travel size Lip Junkie lipgloss and double ended eyeshadow brush.
-Very buildable and blendable colors
-The case is a sturdy and durable metal case that snaps shut. The case also contains a large mirror.
-This palette contains a matte black shadow

-Only five of the shadows in the palette are exclusive to this palette (which isn't a HUGE con for me as I only own two of the featured shades in other palettes I own, so for me this is okay because 10 of the colors are new to my collection of eyeshadow).
-The color Half-Baked was also featured in the original Naked palette (I would have liked to see a new color instead of a repeat of a color already in the original palette).

Would I Repurchase? 
-Yes, I would definitely purchase this product if I had it to do over again.  I think the palette is amazing and I can't wait to try out many more looks.  I'm really interested to create looks using both palettes.

Comment below and tell me, will you be getting NAKED all over again? If you've already purchased this palette, what are your thoughts and opinions about it?

X's and O's,
