At the start of 2011 I was working for Urban Decay and we were told there was going to be a Naked 2 in the fall. They said it would be in a tin and that was all we were allowed to know so when the 15th anniversary palette was released I thought perhaps they were talking about that. I assumed they were expecting to be as popular as the Naked. I was mightily disappointed that we weren’t going to get an actual new Naked.. until this morning. I’ve never had a more exciting reading list appear in front of me!
Now I didn’t want to go pinching pictures from those lucky few that have the palette in their possession so I will point you in the direction of Charlotte at Lipglossiping who has some fab up-close shots and promises swatches later today (can’t wait) here’s the link to her review post. I love that it’s in the same format as the first Naked but it’s in a wipe-clan tin. Much as I thought the chocolate box velvety finish looked great on the first it’s not worn well over time. There’s also a useful double ended eyeshadow brush included at launch as opposed to the double ended pencil that was so hard to manufacture and made the first palette so tricky to get hold of until they replaced it with a shadow brush. Lastly the mirror is the size of the whole lid so more usable and rather than the mini primer potion that is usually included with UD’s sets they’ve put in a mini Lip Junkie Lipgloss.. I can tell you these smell and taste delicious.. nothing like the disgusting pocket rockets (eugh) So that’s a nice to have.
I have no idea the price point or the uk launch date but rest assured as soon as I do, you will!
This is one item I will be rushing to the shops for, how about you?
