Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics - reviews

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette is a novelty that was not expected. She puzzled many with her appearance. Why do we need Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics, when there is Urban decay naked basics?

But most of all, this question alarmed those who did not manage to buy the first one. They don’t know which palette to choose, how does one differ from the other, and most importantly – which one is better?

I confess, on the day the second version of Naked appeared, I was inundated with questions: “Ol, can you advise which one to choose: Naked 2 Basics or Naked Basics? Help! ”. Let’s figure it out together.

The design of the second palette is absolutely identical to the first one.

As for the quality, both palettes are well pigmented, they crumble when applied (but not as catastrophic as the shadows Sleek makeup), excellent stew.

Resistance depends on base under the shade… I am using Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Output: now I can answer the question: “Which one to choose: Naked 2 Basics or Naked Basics?” …

I choose the second version of the palette. The reason is simple: a cold palette is rare. Increasingly, I come across palettes of eyeshadows with warm colors and a complete absence of cold ones. And they are the most popular not only in client’s makeup, but also in mine.

Which one would you choose: warm or cold?
