i’m a bad person. i’m weak and i’m bad. after coming in from a friends birthday on friday night i found twitter and facebook a flurry about debenhams releasing the urban decay naked2 pallet early online. my hands went far too close to my wallet and at one point i was even trying to put my card details in in the dark (lame or what?!). but i stopped myself, closed my laptop and went to bed. for any normal person the story ends here but not for me. when i awoke on saturday morning i checked the debenhams site out of interest to see if the pallet was still available. it was. next thing i knew it was mine. i have no idea if the pallet has even sold out yet (i heard rumours on twitter it wasn’t) but in the slight fear it would, i purchased. i’m weak i tell you!

and today it arrived

it comes with a lipgloss (boring) and a double ended brush – compared to the first pallet which came with a mini primer potion and a brown and black eyeliner

more importantly. the colours

some are the same as in the first pallet but you get a fair few newbies as well. i’m not to embarrass myself by attempting to swatch this pallet (and also i’m not quite ready to start sticking my fingers in it :P) there are loads of blogs that got the pallet early and already have some great swatches, eg anna link here, so they are the best places to go to see the colours

so is it worth the money and the hype? well i got mine for £36 from debenhams but received 500 bonus points now meaning i have £5 off my next shop which makes the price slightly more bearable. however considering not a single shade in my original naked pallet has a hint of a dent in it i shouldn’t have bought this. i do wear more nude shades now yes but there are only so many versions of taupe and vanilla you can own. i think if you reach for your naked pallet everyday and are a lover of all this nudes then yes go for it. or if your like me and just want something pretty (or couldn’t bare everyone else having one if i didnt :P) then full steam ahead! but try not to let the hype cloud your judgement too much :P
