The Dupe List: Urban Decay Naked Palette



As per request, I will be doing a few posts on possible dupes for various coveted or limited edition items and even just regular old products (request) as often as I can. I was a quite unsure what to start with but a friend of mine suggested the Urban Decay Naked Palette, since, I believe, it is still quite difficult to get a hold of. Since it has quite a few eyeshadows, I will be posting these in sections of three.

You are no longer a VIRGIN if you get NAKED and SIN :)
1. MAC DAZZLELIGHT 2. MAC SHROOM 3. MAC NAKED LUNCH 4. SMASHBOX VANILLA
1. WET N WILD COMFORT ZONE (2) 2. MAC ALL THAT GLITTERS 3. MAC NAKED LUNCH
1. MAC WEDGE 2. MAC KID 3. MAC CORK 4. MAC COPPERPLATE
VIRGIN is a really frosty smooth milled creamy white. Finding a dupe for this was a little tough, but from the permanent collection, MAC's Shroom seemed to be the closest match. The others where either too pink (Dazzlelight) or too yellow or warm.

SIN is another frosty shadow that leans towards the more pinkier side. At first, I thought that MAC's All That Glitters would be a very close match but it was not as pink as I wanted it to be. Everything else didn't quite match too well, but if chosen, MAC's Naked Lunch would be the closest.

NAKED is clearly undupable to me because nothing from my collection came remotely close to its very soft cool grey tone. I thought MAC's Cork would be similar but it looks a lot more warm when swatched aside Naked.
