What'd you get with your Sephora VIB?

I caved and got the Naked 2 palette. I've been holding out for awhile because I was convinced (or was I?) that the original Naked palette is enough. WHO AM I KIDDING?!?

It's gorgeous! I'm sure you've all read and seen enough reviews and swatches of it already. I know I have.



The shades are much more cooler than the original Naked, which I really love. I'm excited to start using it tomorrow! The double ended brush is nice and has a heavy feel to it. The packaging is loads better. The tin is much sturdier than the original palette, definitely an upgrade packaging-wise.

Foxy, Half Baked, Booty Call

Tease, Snakebite, Suspect

Pistol, Verve, YDK

Busted, Blackout

In comparison to the original Naked, this one has 5 new shades exclusive to this palette. The formula is the same as the UD Anniversary palette, with less fall out and more intense pigments. It is also the same formula in the Build Your Own Palette that's been buzzing on the interwebs lately. 

The price point is great -- $50 for 12 full sized shadows and a brush. Of all my palettes, I think the UD Naked ones give you the most bang for your buck, especially with the very wearable shades. Definitely a neutral lover's dream! I was able to get it for $46 with the 15% discount. Yes!

Thoughts on the Naked 2? What'd your get with your VIB discount?

hahhaha i'm thinking the same way like you! convincing myself that the original Naked is enough. still haven't caved tho.. it's just a matter of time lol!

Tracy said...

I was also thinking if I needed this since I had Naked 1. I've been putting it off, and then lemming, and then putting it off... But you're now getting me back on the lemming phase.

Jacqueline said...

You caved! It is really a bargain to get it at 46 dollars. I must not look at your swatches lest I cave as well. I must be strong ;)

Ashley said...

I don't think I'll be buying anything during the 15% off event at Sephora this time. If I didn't already have the Naked 2, that's exactly what I'd get though :P

Jen said...

I just talked myself out of asking someone to CP me the UDNP 1.... then i see your post on the 2nd one and I want it all over again hahaha, can't wait to see some looks you do with this palette :D

Small Town Gal said...

I absolutely love my Naked Palette 2. Ever since I got that, I have stopped using my other shadows. I agree with you, this is a great value palette.

Sunny said...

I got NAKED2 a while ago and I love it, probably not more than the original but I love it all the same (I am sentimental. The original and I go way back, and that's the item that fueled my passion in cosmetics)! My skin tone really leans warm, but the colors in there work very well for me. I'm not a big fan of Chopper's fallout, and despite the fact that I LOVE Half Baked I don't need a second one. Other than that I love it! Can't wait to see some looks you do xx

Pammy said...

Gorgeous shades! The Naked palettes aren't calling my name though since I'm not into such shades but I probably would've if I were into neutrals. FOTD with Naked 2, please? :)

The Procrastinator said...

You're going to love this!

Laces and Shades said...

I would love to try out the Naked palettes, however, I'm about to give up on eyeshadows because I have very oily lids, and none of the primers I tried work (including urban decay eye primer). I would like to know if you have any recommendations?

Leticia - Cosmetics Aficionado said...

Love both my Naked palettes. :)

I got 3 YSL lipsticks (Nude Beige, Sensual Silk, Ultimate Beige)

Jyoan said...

haha, don't tempt me. I am still holding out! haha, especially since I know full well I can't wear cool tones at all. =(((

Denysia said...

I would love to purchase this palette! It looks very good for daily wear!

Popcorn said...

noooo why?? I too was planning on passing this item but you have unleashed my inner feelings of wanting it again >< It looks so gorgeous~

Beauty and the Scientist said...

I am so tempted but do I really need it????? yes no yes ?? I haven't gotten anything yet I'm still deciding.

Eden-Avalon said...

:3 I have my eye on an Edward Bess Quad and a Lancome rouge in love in miss coquelicot. I might go in store to buy a foundation or something too.

bebem.xo said...

Haha! No one can resist the temptation of getting " Naked " ;)

I got the Clarisonic Mia, the blush duo from the Sephora and Patone+Universe Collection and a YSL Glossy Stain in 12 Corail Fauve.

I think I probably will be picking up some more items later next week hehe :)

Phoebe Limanta said...

I really really wanted this palette but alas... I have so many shadows I really DON'T need it... :( I think I prefer these colours over the first palette though!

Maggie said...

I still have yet to buy the first or the second Naked palettes! Yay Maggie! :D

sugar sugar said...

i didn't get the 1st naked palette and am trying to restrain myself from getting this too haha! it is ever so tempting! >.<

Frances said...

I just purchased this with my 15% off as well! But... I think a lot of the shadows show up so similarly on my skin tone :T thinking about returning it...

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make
my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design.
Cheers
