Can Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Be Urban Decay Naked DUPE?October 03, 2016
I got my hands on these Maybelline Palettes months ago but I havent had time to try it out. At first when I saw the palettes, my mind automatically converted to the most famous eyeshadow palette in the world, Urban Decay Naked Palette. Is this the cheaper alternatives for Naked, or is it a totally different palette?
First of all, the black one doesn't really remind me of Naked simply because there's a mixture of cool and warm tones eyeshadow while Naked 1 is more into warm, and Naked 2 is more into cool. Personally I prefer the colors provided by Maybelline The Blushed Nudes better than Naked since there are more variations and more matte
However for the rose hue palette, it really reminds me of my Naked 3 that has rose tone. Probably because there's not many rose-hue brown eyeshadow palettes available in the market and as far as I know, Maybelline is the only one who has this kind of palette in Indonesia
This is the swatch for the black palette. Unfortunately though the color seems tempting, it can't deliver the pigmentation and smooth texture offered by Urban Decay. But again, NAKED price is 5-7x times more expensive. So if you dont want to splurge money just for eyeshadow but still want a palette that has similar color with Naked, you might want to try it and use eye primer to make the color pops better
For the rose palette, the color is exact duplicate for NAKED 3 in my opinion, it's a beautiful rosy brown shadow that is difficult to obtain. However the pigmentation is no way better than the black palette and it takes a lot of effort to make the color pops and differs than the rest.
Honestly I think Maybelline The Blushed Nudes is a disappointment because not only the texture is difficult to blend and the color is not pigmented enough. However bear in mind that NAKED is 5-7 times more expensive than Maybelline, so in case you'd like to get a cheaper alternatives, Maybelline wins in this case
Also it comes with a dual ended brush, it doesnt seem so bad
Besides if you find that Urban Decay NAKED is too pigmented and too much for you, and you fancy only light touch of eyeshadow, probably these palettes will do you a favor
On addition the packaging, though made by plastic, the simplistic and minimalism design looks cute enough for Instagram or stored inside your make up box. And again, it's available at Maybelline counter and accessible easily
