Ahh. Nothing quite like your first, is there? I remember watching Naked palette tutorials on YouTube for hours after I got this! There's only so many colors and so many ways to put them together, but I was fascinated by how much everyone loved this palette and how they made it work for them! I believe this is the palette that fostered my love and appreciation for neutrals. So let's see how they swatch!

No matte highlight, but still, gorgeous colors nonetheless. The overall tone of this palette seems to be very warm. I feel like this combination of colors would work particularly well for blue eyes, but that's the nice thing about neutrals; they look great on everybody!
There is a dud in this palette: Sidecar. That eyeshadow is such a glittery, fall-out ridden mess! The rest of the shadows are pretty great, though. I love Naked and Buck for transition colors between browbone and crease. Urban Decay does mattes so well, I wish they'd include them in palettes more!
I really do love this palette. I find myself reaching for it on days when I don't want to be particularly creative with my makeup. I'm just going through the motions and I want to put on something that I know looks good. I still like the color selection and shadow quality of Naked 2 better than the original Naked, though.
My comparison post is coming up, thanks for sticking around!
