Urban Decay Naked Palette Dupe


Makeup is one of my many passions in life and I always love to try and mix things up a bit. However, there are some items in my collection which are my 'daily essentials'- products I can't live without. One of these is the Avon 8 in 1 nude eyeshadow palette. This is incredibly similar to the Urban Decy Naked
The spongy applicators that come with the palette are not very good, so I would recommend using a Superdrug blending brush to apply your eyeshadow, which is what I use. This is a cheap brush at only £1.99. 

I use this pale whitish colour as an inner corner highlight and as a brow highlight. It is a matte shadow.

This colour looks great as a base, or blended with one of the darker shades. It is a shimmer shadow.

This is the perfect dupe for the Naked's Half Baked, I love it on its own or blended with the shade to its right. It is a shimmer shadow.

This shade doesn't swatch very well on my finger, the actual colour in the palette is more representative of what it actually looks like. This is by far my favorite shimmer shadow.

I don't regularly use this shadow as it matte, but I think it does look nice blended with the Dainty Doll eyeshadow in Shade 1.

This eyeshadow is great for applying close to your tear duct as it really brightens up the eye. It is a matte shadow.

This shadow blends really well with any of the other shades in the palette or even on its own for a pretty daytime look. It is a shimmer shadow.

This shadow looks quite daunting, but once on the eye it looks much softer-perfect for nighttime. It is a shimmer shadow.

This is the first 4 shades from the left swatched on my hand.

This is the 4 darker shades swatched.

Overall, I would say that this eyeshadow palette is perfect for day or night as it has a really versatile range of shades; it is a very good alternative to the Naked palette if you're not willing to spend all of your money.
