Time for part 2 of the Naked palette comparisons! There are a couple of good dupes for Naked 2, (the new Makeup Revolution one has caught my eye recently), but I think the MUA Undress Me Too Palette is the most popular one, so I thought it wold be fun to compare them.
‘Naked 2’ contains 12 cool toned shadows (9 shimmer, 3 matte). I used to use this palette almost everyday when I first started using makeup (and probably used one too many super shimmery shades, eeek) but recently I’ve kind of neglected it due to it’s lack of matte blending shades. The closest thing to a crease colour is Tease, which on my super pale skin can look kind of muddy. I honestly love all the shades in this palette- it’s one of the few completely cool palettes out there- I just wish there was a matte brown. When I want to use ‘Naked 2’ I generally have to reach for another palette as well to blend everything out which is kind of inconvenient, so I tend to forget about it. These Urban Decay shadows, as with pretty much all others, are incredible quality, long lasting and easy to use. The only downside, like I mentioned in Naked vs. Undressed, is the fact that it costs £37.
‘Undress Me Too’ contains 12 neutral-cool shadows (9 shimmer, 3 matte). The shades in this palette are slightly less cool than in ‘Naked 2’, and the colours are slightly less intense so they’re slightly easier to wear. These shadows are pretty much exact dupes for ‘Naked 2’, and the quality of them is really incredibly. Most of the shadows are as pigmented as Urban Decays, they’re very easy to blend and on me, with a primer, they last just as long as other eyeshadows.
These are pretty much identical in colour, I think, and the only differences are that some of the Urban Decay shades are slightly more pigmented. Honestly though, I think that most of Urban Decay’s shimmers are more like pressed glitters rather than eyeshadows, so I don’t really expect a £4 palette to live up to that.
What do you think? Do you have either of these, or both? Let me know which you prefer the look of!
