'Insert Nudity Pun Here'

That's right, it's Naked 2 time!

I was so excited to get this in the mail :) Not only because Friday was my birthday :P Coming home from work to this, it was like 'Happy Birthday Me!' haha :P

Let's get straight into the swatches! I'm sure most people have seen so many of these swatches and blog posts already, but living in Australia I got it the first moment I could, so blame Urban Decay for my lateness ;)

All these are with Flash because it was late, and the ones without flash failed miserably. And believe, me I took a lot :(

For the closeup shots, the name of the shade can be clearly seen underneath :)

And now swatches :) L-R as the palette. Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout.
No Flash.

With Flash.

And now the Lip Junkie, Naked. It's a lovely, sheer, nude pinky colour. I actually like the mint smell, though it could be too strong for someone who wasn't a mint fan. The cooling and plumping is actually quite fun, and I noticed a very slight difference in my lips, though of course nothing dramatic :)

Natural light.

There should hopefully be a haul video up soon, as well as a tutorial, featuring the Naked 2 :) I really can't wait to play with this palette. My first thoughts are its less natural than the original, with no colours comparable to Naked and Buck, but a lot more versatile. The original Naked I would look at and could only think of either neutral or maybe golden smokey looks (though don't get me worng, I still love it and think it is an amzing palette). This one I can already see a variety of different looks, from very frosted, metallic, golden, bronze, and even silver. And I LOVE the inclusion of the matte black, so handy to have. And its so pigmented and creamy to boot :)

I hope this was helpful :) This really is a gorgeous palette. My only problem in the morning now is which Naked do I reach for :P

Stay beautiful.
