To Buy or Not to Buy: Imitation Naked 3 Palette by Maybelline
Hey again everyone! I'm here with a question today...what do you guys think of this eyeshadow palette by Maybelline?
Called 'Blushed Nudes' It's pretty obvious to me that this is supposed to be a cheaper version of Urban Decay's Naked 3 Pallet. I mean, just look at the similarities in the colors above!! But the Naked 3 pallet costs $54, while Maybelline's is only $10. Hmm....what to do?!
From the reviews I read about this knock-off palette:
- the colors are more sheer, and less shimmery compared to Naked 3
- you only get one matte color (apparently naked has 3+)
- the wear time is still great (7+ hours)
- you can get a good, more vibrant color like Naked 3's colors by layering or applying with a wet brush

So...should I get it, or splurge for the Naked 3?

I've had my eye on Naked 3 because I love the colors, but I've been waiting for the right moment. And now Maybelline comes along and does this!!! The price difference is huge, and if the eyeshadows are still good I'm really considering it.
What would you guys do? Help a girl out!!

@chelseaheyes just remember that if it's less pigmented, such as more sheer, then you have to work harder and longer to achieve the same look. I'd go for the Urban Decay, if it was me.
I also have the imitation one from Forever 21 and I love it for my daily school use, only $10 but goes a long way and long lasting nice colors !
The imitation one doesn't look so bad. I actually like the travel size palette.
I'm a big fan of the Naked palette. Yes, it's pricey but it's worth every penny. Plus, the brush that comes with the set is amazing. I can't do my eye makeup without it.
