Product Review: Urban Decay Naked Palette 2

Here's a side by side swap of the UDNP1 (top) vs the UDNP2 (bottom) 
via Makeup and Beauty Blog's below and check out her post with her review.

Here's the things to note from the video:

-Quality is just as great as the first the one. Obviously, they're the same brand.
-Very neutral colors, great for any skin tone and eye color.
-Case is superior to the UDNP1.
-Perfect for those starting out in make-up or prefer more natural colors. There are still some dark shades (that black is pretty heavy), but has more daytime and lighters shades than UDNP1.
-If I had to pick just one of the palettes, I'd choose the first one, only because I prefer more of a smoky eye, but I'm also more familiar with it since I've had it for so long. 
-I use both palettes frequently, the UDNP2 mostly for work and day activities and the UDNP1 for nights/weekends.
-My MAC shadows, besides my holy grail shades, have completely been ignored and have pretty much become obsolete since buying these palettes. They're THAT good.
-Definitely worth the funds!! Every makeup lover should own them.

Do you have the palettes? How do you like them? Which do you prefer?

Do you guys prefer written or vlog reviews? Or is a post like this that has both preferable?

I have both palettes and I think the second works better for my skin tone. Although I LOVE the Toasted color from the first and buy that color individually now. :)

I like the posts that have both. :) I just found your blog just a few days ago and I'm in love! I've never been able to curl my hair and make it look good and I tried your method out the other day and everyone loved it!! Thanks for the tips!!!

Looking at the shades on an arm make me lean towards the original palette -- the corals and coppers of the second would look silly on me; trust me I have tried those colors lol

ugh. i need this. i want this. next friends & family or any other kind of sale, i'm pulling the trigger. i am still basically using that sephora bronzer palette that you introduced me to a long time ago. and i love it. so i KNOW i will love this. i am such a scaredy cat when it comes to makeup! i like the videos and the written parts :)

I don't have either, but I think I'd choose the first one! I like the packaging more and a lot of people have pointed out the second one is more cool-toned!

I have both and love both. Like you I prefer the 1st one for smokey eye looks and the 2nd one for more every day looks. I've also been neglecting my MAC shadows, except for Shroom which has made an appearance yesterday and today.

I prefer written blogs, as I do a lot of blogging at work and can't listen/watch the videos. I think vlogs are best for demos and how to's.

I have ignored all my other makeup as well. I need to buy the first one now.
