The other day I was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I noticed a post from Birchbox with a tutorial featuring the Coastal Scents Revealed palette. When I opened the link to watch the tutorial, it looked so familiar I laughed. Hello, Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2 knock off!
Since I have managed to collect all 3 Naked palettes, I don’t usually give these sort of dupes much attention. BUT since I am completely obsessed with Birchbox and they sell good quality, high quality products I was intrigued.
Can you see the strong resemblance between the to Naked palettes? Each Naked palette costs $52, or get the Coastal Scents Revealed palette for $21. So now you are probably wondering what the difference is. The Naked palettes both have 12 shades each, so 24 total and the Revealed palette has 20 shades, so you will don’t have quite as much variety.
Although I think the Urban Decay shadows feel a little smoother and maybe slightly more pigmented, I think a great primer will make almost any shadow go on super smooth and last.
Will you be investing in the Coastal Scents Revealed palette? Or sticking to the Urban Decay Naked palettes?
