Naked 2 vs. Undress me too palette - REVIEW



Probably you've heard this before but the NAKED 2 palette is probably my favourite neutral palette of all time. I believe I have featured it in a few of my videos. 

What happens when your favourite low cost brand comes out with an almost exact dupe?
You scream of excitement "UNDRESSED ME TOO"!! (after all you have to undressed to be naked... =P)

Yeah, bad joke there...but today I'm going to be comparing the Naked 2 palette with this palette from MUA called UNDRESSED ME TOO.

In a previous post I compared the original Naked with MUA's Undressed and I gave my opinion on MUA's eyeshadows in general. Click here for that =)




The first thing I would say when I look at both of them is that both are extremely similar- minus size and packaging of course.

Now, let's take a look at the eyeshadows.



First row Naked 2: Foxy, Half naked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease and Snakebite
Second row MUA: Naked, Devotion, Shy, Fiery, Lavish and Dreamy

I'd say that Foxy and Naked are the same color, tho Naked is quite less pigmented (you can still work with it so it isn't complitely useless).
Devotion is darker than Half naked but along the same lines.
I don't see differences between Bootycall and Shy.
Chopper is more of a brown while Fiery is warmer with copper or a rose gold tone to it. 
Tease and Lavish look the same to me.
Last, the difference between Snakebite and Dreamy is so subtle I can't really put my finger to it, so I'll say they are the same.


First row Naked 2: Suspect, Pistol, Verve, Ydk, Busted and Blackout.
Second row MUA: Tranquil, Exposed, Reveal, Wink, Obsessed and Corrupt.


To me these two rows are pretty much the same colors or the differences are too subtle. Being a little bit picky, Busted is to me a clear dark plum color while Obsessed is more brown and less purple.
The only thing to add is that Corrupt is not as near as pigmented as Blackout.

So voilĂ !
Like you see the differences are minimal and for the most part the pigmentation is as good. The staying power on meis the same for both palettes.

Hope you like this post!
