Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

After seeing the urban decay naked two palette in countless other blog posts and YouTube videos I decided to give in and buy one, I am so glad I did as it is one of my favourite palettes in my make up collection.
At the price of £37 the palette is a little on the expensive side but completely worth it. The casing of the palette is metal like a pencil tin, with a snap lock top which means the eye shadows are quite secure. The palette also has a full size mirror in the lid and comes with a double ended brush. The palette contains 12 different shades of beautiful eye shadow, all very pigmented and quite taupe based. It contains 9 shimmers and only 3 matte shades, personally I love shimmers, so I don’t have a problem with that, but if you prefer mattes be warned. The shadows in the palette are soft, so I find there can be some fall-out with some of the shimmer shades but are easy to remove.
Foxy is a creamy bisque shade with a matte finish, I find can be slightly chalky but it is the perfect base colour as it counteracts any darkness on the eyelid.  

Half baked
Half baked is a bronze gold with a shimmery finish, a great colour for all over the lid and has minimal fall-down.

Booty call
Booty call is a shimmery cork shade, It’s more of a frost finish.
Chopper is a copper shimmer with a fine silver micro-glitter, I love the colour of this eyeshadow but it can be hard to wear due to some glittery fall down.

Tease is a creamy pale brown with a matte finish and slight purple undertones, although I find the pigmentation is lacking I find it looks great with green eyes.

  Snakebite is a dark bronze shimmer with a metallic sheen, it has a fantastic buttery texture with intense colour payoff. I would say it is one of the strongest in the palette.
Suspect is the perfect neutral, but with a really different taupey tone running through it.
Pistol is a the perfect mix between a grey and a brown, and has a nice shimmer finish. Great for creating a day time smokey effect.
Verve is a very light shade of grey/brown with just the slightest of shimmers.
YDK is a very easy to wear cool bronze shimmer, very similar to Chopper, but not as golden.

Busted is a dark plummy brown, this shade is great for the crease, or to run under eye for a smokey look.
Blackout is a really intense matte black, it has good pigmentation and isn’t too powdery. It is perfect for eyeliner.
