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?
