Urban Decay is an American cosmetic brand founded in 1996. It offers a wide variety of products with an “insane range of shades”, going from funky and edgy to neutral and simple. Some of their most successful products are the ‘Naked’ eyeshadow palettes.
The Naked 2 palette retails for 54$ and delivers 12 “taupe-hued neutral” colors [matte and shimmers]. The palette also comes with a dual-ended brush and a mirror.
Before tackling the formula of the eyeshadows, I’ll start talking about the packaging: the eyeshadows are beautifully presented, the packaging is very simple yet gorgeous and it is lightweight even though the container is made out of metal. Moreover, the color of the container is stunning and it gives us an idea of the eyeshadows’ color scheme. I also love the 3D writings on the top cover; it is so satisfying to the touch
Moving on to the formula: the eyeshadows are extremely pigmented yet powdery so make sure to tape out your brush before applying the makeup. They are also easy to apply and blend, they are not patchy or streaky and when I swatched them on my arms, they glided on so smoothly and easily.
The brush that comes with the palette is very good; it’s perfect if you are on-the-go or if you are traveling. As a matter of fact, with this palette you can create diverse makeup looks under the same color scheme. However, I wish the palette had more matte shades, rather than shimmery shades.
I think that the palette is worth 54$; I mean the eyeshadows are amazing, the brush is great and the packaging is beautiful. On top of that, if the palette costs 54$, it means that each eyeshadow costs around 4.5$, which is relatively cheap [and you get a brush].
