Bootycall: satin white beige.
Chopper: medium rose gold with silver/copper shimmers.
Tease: matte purple taupe.
Snakebite: dark golden bronze.

Unlike the original Naked palette, the Naked 2 palette comes packaged in a tin container with a mini Lip Junkie lipgloss in the shade “Naked.” It opens up to reveal 12 full-sized eyeshadows (3 of which are matte) and a full-size mirror going across the length of the palette. The Naked 2 palette supposedly features more secure packaging. Packaging for neither the original Naked or the Naked 2 is perfect: the Naked palette attracted plenty of fingerprints and loose eyeshadow, while the Naked 2 palette is prone to dents and scratches.
In regards to the eyeshadows themselves, the original Naked palette features much warmer colors, while the Naked 2 has more neutral medium colors and taupes. The quality and the color payoff of the eyeshadows in the Naked 2 palette are great. A matte cream and a matte black are included, which complements the other colors well and makes this palette more well-rounded than the original.
I personally cannot recommend one palette over the other because I think that they are unique enough to warrant buying both. If you were a beginner and were looking to invest in an all-in-one palette, I would say the original Naked palette is your best choice. Not only does the Naked palette include a mini primer potion, but it also contains two matte brown shades that could be used on eyebrows as well. However, I think that the Naked 2 is also a good investment, especially since it is a palette with such beautiful taupes and medium warm colors. I do think that the Naked 2 palette is worth it, especially since you will 12 full-sized eyeshadows, a double-ended shadow/crease brush, and a mini lip gloss for the price. But it eventually comes down to what colors you prefer for your skintone and whether you’re willing to make the investment.
