Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette!

 If you're a long time follower of my blog you are familiar with my obsession with Urban Decay palettes. I have a few palettes from them and they never disappoint me. When they came out a little while ago with the Naked 2 i did not think i needed it since i have the first one. After seeing it in person and swatching some of the shades i knew i needed to have it. The Naked palettes are so worth it and a great success. All colors are mostly on the warm- toned neutral side which is amazing to use everyday and create various looks, anything from really simple to smokey eyes. Below in included a picture on my poor overused Naked Palette and how i hit pan on a lot of the shades that i use almost every single day. So it felt like the right time to get the second one and give it a chance. After trying it for about a week now i will admit i am head over heals in love with it. I feel like for some reason these sets of colors suit my skintone better and my taste at the moment. They did include a lot more shimmers in this palette, which i don't mind at all, especially for the summer. The colors are again neutral, although i feel like they are darker which to me is heaven for my smokey eyes. The palette includes:

Blackout (blackest black with matte finish), Booty Call (shimmery cork), Busted (deep brown with shimmery finish), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver micro glitter), Foxy (cream bisque with matte finish), Half Baked (golden bronze with shimmery finish), Pistol (light greyish brown with shimmery finish), Snake Bite (dark bronze shimmer with metallic base), Suspect (pale golden beige with shimmery finish), Tease (creamy pale brown with matte finish), Verve (oyster with shimmery finish), YDK (cool bronze shimmer with metallic base), and Lip Junkie Naked (sheer shimmery pinky neutral) and Good Karma Shadow/Crease Brush 
All comes packed in a metal tin that seems more durable that the first magnet packaging. I prefer the fact that it came with a good brush instead of a double ended eyeliner. The one thing i wish they did was include a travel sized primer instead of the lip junkie. I dont care so much for the shade or the looks of the gloss itself. But that's asking too much isnt it (LOL). Though i will give them credit for finally including a matte black eyeshadow. This palette pretty much has it all, you wouldn't have to reach out for other eyeshadows if you are to take it with you anywhere. You have your shimmers, your highlights and black eyeshadow to line your eyes. All-in-all i feel like it's the best summery palette and the best one that Urban Decay has right now. Both Naked palettes are worth it, i just feel like if you have the first one and don't use it as much you wouldn't need the second one necessarily. Unless you collect these palettes like i seem to be doing.  Either way i recommend checking it out because it's a really great value palette and it is worth having at some point. 
 P.S. - Expect tons of FOTDs with this gorgeousness! =)
