Urban Decay Naked Basics vs Naked Basics 2

urban decay naked basics and naked basic 2 palette

I'm a big fan of the original

Urban Decay Naked Basics

eyeshadow palette and I've even featured it in my everyday makeup staples post here. recently I got my hands on the

Naked Basics 2

palette and I was super excited to compare it to its predecessor.

I've used my Naked Basics palette quite a lot and I think it's super versatile but what I thought the palette lacked was more medium-toned shades. this is where the Naked Basics 2 palette comes in.

the Naked Basics 2 is grey and taupe based and I think it's possible to tell right away that it's more cool-toned compared to the original Naked Basics palette. I love using the Naked Basics 2 for its darker shades and I must say these two palettes are absolutely perfect together, the quality of these eyeshadows is simply amazing.

if I could only keep one of those palettes, I'd probably stick to my beloved original Naked Basics. as much as I like the Naked Basics 2, I prefer the warm-toned shades of the original Naked Basics palette. it is more versatile as I can create both subtle and dark eyeshadow looks with it whereas Naked Basics 2 can only be used to create a softer look. 

that being said, everyone has their own preferences and I know a lot of people who prefer the Naked Basics 2 and its cool-toned shades. which palette do you prefer?

  20. Great review. I would agree with you. Out of the two palettes, I would prefer the original one because I am definitely a more warm neutral person. Still both are lovely though!
