    I just don’t like N2. I’m going to buy it, because I feel I have to – some sort of blogger obligation. But the colors aren’t doing much for me.

  5. Adi says:

    omg I already love the naked palette as it is so I’m most def going to buy the naked 2!!!!!! I love the colors

  6. chanty says:

    would you recommend not buying it if you already have the first one? I have the first one but I really really want this.

  7. Tiffany says:

    I must have Naked2! I’m such a neutrals girl… and I just told myself that I wasn’t buying any more eyeshadow. Oh well… πŸ˜‰

  8. Yelena says:

    hmm i dont have either but i’m not going to lie i think i might actually like the original over the UDNP2. hmmm this is a tough decision!

  9. Crystal says:

    I love the look-the jewels and your top are on point girl! Werk it! I just got my tracking info for the palette whoop, it will be here soon!

  10. Inday says:

    Literally gasped when I saw the first pics of N2. Have and love the original – sometimes I just take it out and look at it adoringly (LOL) but I’ll have to wait until after the new year to get this. Is there any info on whether or not this is LE Karen?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Inday,

      I haven’t heard any info either way… I think it’s save to assume this one will be around for a while. If I hear anything about it being LE I’ll let you know.

  11. Yelena says:

    thnx so much for the swatches karen! i may like the original more :S as a side note i just received my BUXOM armed and GORGEOUS waterproof smokey eye sticks and I would love to hear your thoughts on these!!!!

  12. Nina says:

    i bought naked2. πŸ˜€

    i cannot wait to receive it and play!

    i totally love the look you did, and i cant wait to experiment here too!

  13. Melodie says:

    I am already so in love. This looks better suited to my skin tone than the original, so I’m super excited. Hoping to get it for Christmas!

  14. Melitina says:

    I am getting out of arguments NOT to purchase Naked2, awww. Great bling bling by the way πŸ˜‰

  15. Chris25 says:

    Yep…I’m weak. I need both palettes.

  16. I really like your necklace – it’s very interesting to look at and it has so much going on. πŸ™‚

  17. Katherine Luu says:

    Thanks for the swatches Karen, but I’m having a hard time deciding if buying the second one would be worth it. I already have the first one, and I take it out from time to time, but not as much as I’d like.

  18. Erin says:

    Loving this palette! You look amazing by the way!
    I have the first Naked palette and I actually think I like this new one a bit better! I didn’t order it this morning though, so I am bummed that I have to wait now πŸ™ booo!

  19. Vidhya says:

    You look great Karen…. I really wish we got UD in India πŸ™

  20. Emily says:

    Looks great! I ordered mine today and I’m super stoked.

    What foundation are you rocking in all of this? Studio Sculpt?

  21. Lillian says:

    I have a question for you Karen. Would you recommend on purchasing the Naked Palette 2? I already have the first one and feel like it might be the same? and or similar? But I’m also tempted on purchasing it πŸ™‚

  22. PS says:

    Your make-up looks great in those pics!

  23. I’m not normally a fan of swatches, because I wear so few of the shades, but every one of these looks gorgeous!

  24. Shannon says:

  25. Shannon says:

    Okay maybe I do need one. I do love the original.

    Karen, I just saw your picture on the Urban Decay website! Woohoo, so cool!

  27. peach_ says:

    Whoa, I love your whole look with the statement necklace and top/dress! I wasn’t sure how these cooler toned colors would look, but of course you made it werk (as you’d say :D).

  28. Lisa Marie says:

    Verve and Suspect are some of my all time faves (I have them in the Roller girl Palette). This would be fun to have, but I have Naked, Roller girl, and the 15th Anniversary Palettes…it will take me some time to use what I have; after that…this is game on!

  29. Pamela says:

    Your second pic looks like a Cosmo cover–in a good way! Tres sexy!

  30. Amber says:

    I’m going to resist this one. I have a terrible tendency to buy slightly different versions of things I love over and over. Why do I do that??
    Amber recently posted … Feeling artistic?

    • Lisa Marie says:

      I so encounter the same issue. I get the same hues in different textures. It is a bizarre, unintentional, fixation of mine…

  31. I don’t own Naked 1, I’m debating whether to get Naked 2 or Naked 1. I didn’t like the first one because I thought the colors were too dark for me. I think I might get Naked 2! πŸ™‚ I saw someone using Chopper in a tutorial and I was like ‘UD has to include that in a palette soon besides the Ammo palatte’ and they did! πŸ˜€ do u get a lot of fall out from Chopper and YDK?

  32. Christie says:

    Thanks for the side by side swatches! I don’t have the original Naked palette yet… now I don’t know which one I want. If you had to pick one, which one would you suggest?

  33. looks so pretty on you! i’m excited about this palette – i like the colors better than the first.

  34. Adrienne says:

    Ooh, I saw you on the website!!! Super duper Awesome!!

    I totally wouldn’t have expected, but I’m actually way more interested in the Naked 2 than the original. Huh, me and neutrals… Who wouldve thunk!!

  35. Jen says:

    LOVE your eye makeup! Gorgeous!

    I don’t know… It looks good to me and I use Naked sooo often maybe I will get it… Hm…

  36. Thanks for the swatches, Karen! Your makeup and outfit look fabulous.

  38. Sarah says:

    Oh no! I was going to purchase the palette yesterday but of course I waited until today, and poof! It’s sold out for now. Do you have any idea about when it will be back in stock? PS – the look suits you so well!

  39. Edelmc says:

    I like the new packaging but I think I would prefer to make a custom picked naked palette from mac shadows that would bring out my green eyes and suit my cool toned colouring. There are some pretty shades in the naked palette but I wouldn’t use them all. Ps can I ask where you got your top- it’s fab!

  40. Jennifer says:

    Thank you for this comparison! It’s the best I’ve found! The makeup looks great on you!

  41. lexi says:

    I never bought the first Naked palette so I hope I don’t regret this purchase.

  42. Sarah says:

    Karen – you look so beautiful! I’m jealous of your shoulders and skin color!

  43. Joanna says:

    I prefer N2 it looks more pigmented than N1. Love your necklace!

  44. Emily says:

    I’m allll about the first palette. Have it on today! I am really curious about the 4th pinky shade from the left in Naked2. Those warm pink/coral shades are usually tough with my skin tone. Have to say, these photos are some of your best! Want your hair!

  45. corallista says:

    You make me want this so much! Too bad its not available where I stay! You look great here, love the gloss and cheek color on you!

  47. Inga says:

    For a really, really pale girl with rosy undertones would you recommend the first Naked palette or the second? I never did get the original but I’m always on the verge of ordering.

  48. cassi teague says:

    I already have the first one, but I want this one too! I hope its worth the money to justify having both!

  49. Rhonda Reiser says:

    I love seeing all these neutral colors in one place. After seeing this color palette, I HAVE to have it. I’m going to order online now. Thanks for sharing!

  50. ChicGeek says:

    I’m so excited! I ordered mine today!

  51. Yelena says:

    anyone got the UDNP2 and like the original better?

  52. Sarah says:

    Hi Karen,
    I ordered the palette a few days ago and I can’t wait to try out different looks! I just have a question about the cheek tint – would you say that it’s too bright to wear everyday? Or, does it just depend on the amount of product you apply to your cheeks?

    Thank you!

  53. MAIA says:

    omg i’m totally in love with your necklace!!
    can you tell me where do you bought it? I live in France thanks a lot!
