Urban Decay Naked Palette (Original) vs Naked 2

Naked 1 and Naked 2

There exist some definite mixed opinions on these two palettes. Are they too similar? Not similar at all? Do you need both? Just one? Neither? I’ll let you know what I think at the end of this post. But for now, brace yourself for some serious picture-loading.

The Palettes:

So, at the end of the day. I think these palettes ARE quite different. Yes, they’re both neutral. But where Naked 1 excels at providing warmth, Naked 2 is all about the cool tones. Also, Naked 2 has at least two taupey shadows – colors that have become the darling of … well a lot of women I know. So that alone might be a make or break difference between the two.

Whether you need both is really a matter of personal preferences. But if you can only have one? I suggest first determining whether you prefer cool toned shadows (like I do) or are more of a golden goddess type.

So…Naked? Naked 2? Both? Let me know~

All for now!

    I don’t have either and I don’t think I need either…too many browns for me, I think. I prefer peaches and grays for my neutrals, actually…I think brown makes me look muddy ._.

    I’m still trying to figure out which I actually like better, but I do have both, so I guess my answer would be get both if you’re into neutrals and browns!
