Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

Urban Decay's Naked Basics 2 was recently added to the Naked Collection (August 2014), 
so I figured I'd show a comparison to my fellow make-up lovers. I hope this helps you decide
 if you need this in your collection or not. Both of these go for $29 (USD) and are available on
 Urban DecayUltaSephora, and wherever Urban Decay products are sold.

The packaging is the same in size and weight, however the finish of both the lettering and actual packaging are different. The Naked Basics has a rubberized matte finish (think Nars packaging), while the Basics 2 has a soft plastic finish. They are slightly different in the color of the packaging as well. There are 6 shades in each palette, and each shade has 1.3g/ .05 oz of product.

Urban Decay Naked Basics

The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette is mostly a warm palette, with the exception of WOS and Naked 2.

Shades in this palette (from Left to Right) :

-Venus (soft off-white demi-matte)
-Foxy (cream bisque matte)          
-WOS (very light nude matte)       
-Naked 2 (taupe matte)                
-Faint (warm dusty brown matte)  
-Crave (deepest darkest brown/black matte)

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

The Naked Basics 2 is a Taupe based palette and has much better pigmentation and a better
 texture than the original basics palette, IMO. It has 5 new shades, with the exception of Skimp.

Shades in this palette (from Left to Right) :

-Skimp (pale nude satin)
-Stark (nude-pink matte)
-Frisk (warm grey matte)
-Cover (muted red-brown matte)
-Primal (muted brown matte)
-Undone (deep smokey brown matte)

I must say that I do love the improved velvet-like texture of the mattes in the Basics 2
 palette. It'd be outstanding if Urban Decay could remake the original to have the same
 texture, especially seeing how they keep hiking up the price point with each release. The texture is great and the shades in both palettes blend well with other shadows, I find that the
 Basics 2 palette is more of a sister palette, meaning it's shades are great for working with
other palettes. Don't get me wrong, it has worked well on its own. However, I feel that the
 Original works alone (IMO) and on an everyday basis, as well as working well with other
 palettes. In a nutshell, I find myself reaching for the original palette far more often. 

I hope you found this review/ comparison helpful. What do you think? Which Urban Decay
 Basics palette do you love? Comment and let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
