I was really worried a lot of the colours would be similar to my Naked Palette, but after swatching them myself I'm pleased to say that's not the case. I won't deny it and say there aren't colours that could possibly pass for the other but those are minimal. Obviously Half Baked is actually a repeat so that doesn't count :) However, the ones I find most similar are Busted (Naked2) v Hustle (Naked), and then YDK (Naked2) v Sidecar (Naked) and POSSIBLY Snakebite (Naked2) and Smog (Naked). Now these may not necessarily be the case as the lighting in my house is TERRIBLE!!!! But even with that said, I am still very happy with this purchase :)

I tried to swatch some pictures myself but due to the lighting it didn't really work :( So, thanks to the lovely xsparkage here are the 2 palettes swatched together.

On the top is the Naked palette (left to right):
Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal

And on the bottom is the Naked2 palette (left to right):
Foxy, Half Baked, Booty Call, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout

A lot of people are also asking which is better, or the 'must have' but really how can you ask someone else? It depends on the colours you like the most and, personally, i think BOTH are a must....greedy? me? ;)

Anyhoo, hope you enjoyed this and go get buying ;)

Y'all come back now,
