Naked 2. Mine. Finally.

About darn time.

After the whole world has gotten their hands on Urban Decay's Naked2, I finally get my hands on it. Sephora Malaysia was said to have launched it a while back in January, but as expected, it was pretty much immediately sold out.

So now after waiting foreeeever, it's finally back in stock.

I happened to be in KLCC yesterday evening, and boy am I glad I was. A walk-through Sephora was customary, and there on Urban Decay's shelves was Naked2. I'm quite sure I blinked a few times to make sure my eyes were not playing tricks on me. But nope. It was there.

Apparently, the palettes just arrived. Lucky me.

A peek into the drawer (when the SA took a new palette out for me) showed that they're pretty well-stocked. For now.

At RM179 a piece, it is slightly marked up here (compared to USD50 in the US). But the mark up is not as high as I anticipated.

Naked2 has had its critiques, with some saying that it's a touch too similar to it's older sister - Naked - to warrant a purchase. And understandably so. If you're not particularly into neutrals, you jolly well may not need Naked2 at all. More so if you already own Naked, the original.

But if you're like me, and I really adore neutrals, well... there really isn't a point in trying to talk you out of it, is there?

What say you? Is Naked 2 for you?

Hooray for you! That must be pretty exciting. I have Naked and I haven't even hit pan so I think I'm set for now. Besides, I seem to prefer the Make Up For Ever cream shadows you guys "poisoned" me with your review a while back. That stuff rocks, it just stays on and on, and I found that normal eyeshadows on UDPP just don't cut it anymore. :P

Annette: Hello! Yeah, I am quite excited about my new palette. =) glad the MUFE cream shadows are working out well for you. They're my favourites too! =D

I've been wanting to get Naked2 for a while now, but haven't brought myself to buy it. I am a total neutral eyeshadow fiend so I'm sure that I'll love it, but I have way too much eyeshadow as it is. Hope you enjoy using your new, much awaited palette!

sleepandwater: If you love neutrals, then you really should check it out. Just started trying out mine, so far so good! =)

I finally got the first Naked palette when my uncle had it shipped from the US.. then the day after that, Naked2 was announced. Haha! But I'm very happy with my palette, so Naked2 will have to be admired from afar :)

Kari: Glad you're enjoying your Naked palette! Thanks for commenting. =)
