Lovely people of the internet,
every girl, their grandmother and their cat knows about the greatness (and expensiveness) of the three Urban Decay Naked Palettes . I just couldn’t fathom why anyone would pay 47,99€ for ONE SINGLE eye shadow palette. That’s insane! This is why I was very intrigued to hear about a dupe which was emerging in the beauty community: The W7 palettes.
To be honest, of course they’re just a cheap knock-off, but hey, I’m a student and I can’t justify to pay more for eye shadow palettes than food. After hearing great things about them all over the internet, I thought it was time to give them a try. I ordered all three of them via Amazon and paid a total of 28.99€ for ALL of them, sounds more like it, right?! I also ordered the dupe of Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer, but it has yet to arrive.
From the look of it, as you can tell, they’re pretty similar to the original Urban Decay ones. Obviously, they’re not as well made, but it’s all about the actual shadows, am I right?
Introducing the dupe for the original Naked 1, Lightly Toasted. 12 similar (if not the same) eye shadow colors, great pigmentations, not as shimmery (but that’s definitely fine for me), not much fall-down. The brush that comes with is it, is not really usable, but who takes advantage of this anyway. The only thing that’s lacking is a mirror.
The same holds true for the dupe of Urban Decay’s Naked palette 2, the W7 In the Buff:
Same same but different, the dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 3, W7’s In the Nude:
I obviously haven’t tried every color yet, but I’ve been using this palettes ever since I got them and to be honest my beloved Maybelline color tattoos get kind of jealous! You might not need all three of them, as the colors are pretty similar, but I thought I give it a shot and wasn’t disappointed so far. It’s a great dupe if you’re on a budget or if you can’t justify the price even though you’re loaded with cash 😉
Have you tried the W7 palettes yet? If so, how do you like them? Let me know ♥
