Urban Decay Naked Palette 1

Updated on June 13, 2012

I recently bought the Urban Decay Naked Palette (first edition) for my birthday. I have to say it's one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Usually I'm very careful about money and don't like to spend too much on certain things when I could just buy great indie makeup and get way more. I decided to take a look at the Naked Palette though, because what would it hurt? So while in Ulta, I decided to look at the displays and test the pigmentation of the palette. At the time the Naked Palette 2 wasn't in stock at my store, but the colors in that palette weren't for me anyway.

So I did a few test swatches and I was blown away. I've used a few Urban Decay products before, but never the eyeshadow. The pigmentation is AMAZING! Long lasting colors and they are great for blending. They were also very smooth and easy to apply. I knew right then I had to have it!

So What's the Difference Between 1 and 2?

Since I personally don't own the Naked 2 palette, I'll just go off of information I've read and seen. It seems that the Naked 1 palette has more shimmer or glittery shades, while the Naked 2 palette has less I believe but does have more metallic colors. They both contain matte, shimmer and glittery shades.

The Naked 2 palette has a few exclusive shades also. The color "Half Baked" is included in both palettes.

With the Naked 1 palette you receive a small bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion as well as a eyeshadow brush. The Naked 2 palette contains lip gloss and a double sided brush.

The most noticeable differences between the two are the palettes they are in. Naked 1 palette is made out of a sort of thick cardboard (I believe) covered in felt feeling material and gold lettering. It is rectangular in shape and the inside contains a mirror. The Naked 2 palette is in a metal/tin sort of container and is rounded off. The inside contains an even larger mirror than the Naked 1 palette.

Reasons Why I should Purchase

  • Naked 1 palette seems to have more shimmer and glittery shades
  • Comes with Urban Decay Primer Potion which is a must in my world to keep eyeshadow on and not crease. Naked 2 does not come with this.
  • Both designs are great along with having their own different colors

If you already have one or the other, I don't believe you should buy both unless you'd like to. There is not too much of a difference (in my opinion) to justify spending $50 for each. Some of the colors can be used in place for each other so if you have one, you really shouldn't need the other.

      This line is hot, especially on places like ebay. I love neutral colors.

      Greetings Artistic, Naked 1 had been on my list to purchase for a while and simply purchased other items in its stead. I'm still LEARNING how to apply eyeshadow and just started dabbling in it after I got 50! Thanks for the advice on Naked 2.
