Hey guys! My name is Rachel and I’m from London…Ontario, Canada. Charlotte was so kind to allow me to write a guest post for her blog. I’ll be sharing a makeup review today and if you want to check out more of my posts about makeup and beauty, be sure to visit my blog.

Today I’m going to review Urban Decay’s Naked2 Palette and Naked3 Palette which you can of course find at Sephora or on Urban Decay’s website.

 

What I Like

  • First things first, packaging! Both Naked2 and Naked3 come in super cute tin packaging with a large sized mirror on the inside for easy application! The packaging is sturdy too, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped these palettes and they’re still in great condition (mostly).
  • The brushes!!! I love the brushes that come in both of these eyeshadow palettes. Both brushes are duel-ended for shadow and for blending. I even use them for other eyeshadows, definitely a selling feature!
  • Amount of product. The Naked palettes contain a good amount of product for each eyeshadow. I used Naked2 so much that I’ve hit pan on a few of the shadows, as I’m sure you noticed, which is definitely a good sign.
  • Eyeshadow quality. These eyeshadows are great quality, easily blendable and pretty pigmented. Although, I tend to use a little more product with these palettes to deepen the pigmentation.

 

What I Don’t Like

  • Finish variety. Both Naked2 and Naked3 have three matte shadows each, the other six being shimmer, glitter or satin finishes. I tend to use these palettes at night as opposed to during the day. Matte eyeshadows offer a subtler look so more of a balance would have been beneficial for me.
  • The price. Urban Decay’s Naked palettes are all $66.00 CAD which isn’t crazy, but definitely on the more expensive end for eyeshadow palettes. In comparison, Tartelette in Bloom Clay by Tarte is $60.00 CAD for more product than Naked2 or 3.

When buying an eyeshadow palette be sure to consider each eyeshadow in the palette before purchasing it because if you have a few that you know you won’t use as often, keep shopping, the right fit is out there!

Other Recommendations

  • Looking for a palette with more mattes? Tartelette in Bloom Clay by Tarte has 12 very pigmented eyeshadows, nine mattes and three lusters! This is my go-to everyday palette.

  • Looking for some bolder colours to brighten up your look? The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette has 14 beautiful shades. This palette takes the cake on blending and pigmentation! Highly recommend.

  • Pair any of these eyeshadow palettes with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, my all-time favourite to ensure a long-lasting look.
