Have you guys heard?? There's a NAKED 2 Palette from Urban Decay! If you haven't heard of the craziness of the original Naked Palette, the original palette has been a bestseller by Urban Decay since Summer of 2010, when it first came out. I was lucky enough to nab one of the first palettes that came out in store and I've been enjoying it ever since. The original consists of 10 shimmery shades with a two matte shades, but the palette is perfect for a natural eye or even for a smokey eye. The new palette consists of 9 shimmery shades and 3 matte shades (one of which is a matte black)!

Now, THIS Naked 2 palette just came out on UrbanDecay.com this morning and I received an e-mail only an hour ago telling me that this new palette will be sold online! It consists of 3 matte shades and the rest (9) shimmery, with a matte black (which is always nice) and a dual-ended brush perfect for packing on shadow and blending out darker colors in the crease. In comparison to the original Naked palette, I'd say that this new palette has more warmer tone colors, which would still match all skin-tones but less for cooler skin-tones. This 2nd palette's mirror is alot bigger and the packaging is alot more sturdy and metal! Also, this palette comes with a lipgloss in Naked. This is new, as Urban Decay's palettes usually come with their primer potion or with an eyeliner. But having this lipgloss would be nice to have! You could have a completed an entire eye look and lip with this one palette!
Personally, I don't think I'll be a buyer of this palette, it's a bit too similar to the original Naked palette! If anything, I'd just be excited to try out the grey color, Pistol (it's the 5th to the right), which looks like a shimmery cool grey, taupe color. But for people just starting out with makeup or for those makeup junkie collectors, I'd recommend it! I love Urban Decay! Just know that you'll be getting a bunch of shimmer along with this palette :) It's to be expected. It's Urban Decay ;)
Will you be one of the lucky ones to nab 1 out of the 5000 sold in the first shipment??
**updated: It's only been 3 hours since I wrote this post but I just checked on their website and it's out of stock, as expected! For all of you wanting it, guess you have to wait until second shipment! Good luck! :)**
