I never had the original palette, though I used Fiona's whenever I had a chance to before a night out or so and I admit I loved it. When I heard about the Naked 2 I ordered it immediately and was far too excited!
This was about 3 weeks ago, and I need to be honest, I haven't really used it all at. I'm not disappointed in it as I do think the colours are really beautiful but they are just too sparkly and too much for everyday wear. I tried a smokey eye for a night out using some blackout, pistol and verve, but it wasn't really wow or anything and I usually prefer brown tones anyway and those particular ones are more grey/black.
In the daytime I have tried foxy, which really is just a base shadow I feel, and bootycall with tease as a darker accent as these are the most wearable colours and the least sparkly. Saying that, half-baked and chopper are lovely for me too but they're nothing new and I have had almost exact same colours in previous Rimmel and Topshop eyeshadow palettes, which are both a lot cheaper and not much less quality.

The quality of the shadows is fair, though I wish they had included their primer instead of a lipgloss in the set as there is some fall-out when applying. All in all I love Urban Decay as a brand in general, and this palette does offer a great range of neutral/smokey/brown tones but I have since reverted back to my MAC painpot for every day wear, which is a shame as I had such high hopes for this.
Did you too purchase this as soon as you saw it? Does it live up to your expectations?
Love You Lots ♥
