Naked Palette - £36
Naked 2 Palette - £36
I've had the original Naked palette for under a year now, and to be honest I don't get a lot of use from it. I find the shades are far too warm for me, and are loaded with glitter. Great for night time, but not so practical for day. A lot of them are also too dark, and just not right for my skin tone.
Some people love this, and as you can see, it's had a bit of use but it's not something I reach for often.
I bought the Naked 2 palette the day it came out. I love to see if products live up to the hype, and over-hyped products are usually the ones everyone wants to read reviews on, which is where I come in.
Yes, it is rather similar to the original Naked palette but I find myself getting a lot more use out of the Naked 2. I find the shades in this palette are a lot more wearable, and can also be blended together a lot easier than the shades in the original palette.
I really love the lighter, more natural shades such as Suspect, Chopper and Bootycall and I think they all work together really nicely.
I think the quality of these palettes are great, there is the issue of fall out due to the insane amount of shimmer (I'm looking at you, original Naked palette) but this can be kept to a minimum by pressing it on and not overloading the brush.
I can't really give advice on which one to buy, it's really down to personal preference. They are reasonably similar, they both offer day and night shades but personally, I'm more suited to the Naked 2 palette as I feel it offers more natural, daywear colours, with the option of building on this to complete a smokey eye for night.
I do think the Naked 2 palette should come with a UD Primer Potion instead of the lipgloss, but then again it does have better packaging - the Naked palette attracts every bit of fluffy ever!
