So, let's compare...
01. Urban Decay:
|'Virgin', 'Sin', 'Naked'|
|'Sidecar', 'Buck', 'Half Baked'|
|'Smog', 'Dark Horse', 'Toasted'|
|'Smog', 'Dark Horse', 'Toasted', 'Hustle' + a little peek of 'Creep'|
|'Smog', 'Dark Horse', 'Toasted', 'Hustle', 'Creep' & 'Gunmetal'|
|Shades 1-6, showing how shades 2, 4 & 6 really catch the light|
|Shades 1 & 2|
The original: Urban Decay 'naked' palette
Pros: nicer packaging (mirror and brush included), colour pay off in the lighter shades is a lot better than the MUA ones (specifically shades 3 & 5).
Cons: the price; incredibly expensive for what you get + the packaging is a bit bulky, the MUA palette is much more compact.
The newcomer: MUA 'undressed' palette
Pros: almost the exact same shades as the 'naked' palette, colour pay off in the darker shades is actually a lot better (specifically shades 10-12 which are A LOT more pigmented), the price; £4 is a steal!
Cons: the packaging is a bit cheap (thin plastic).
Overall verdict: If I had to pick a favourite out of these two palettes I would have to say the MUA is a lot better. The fact that the packaging is a bit cheap doesn't really bother me at all as the price & quality of the shadows far outweigh that little downside.
Well done, the newcomer!
