The Urban Decay Naked Palettes have become a firm favourite amongst beauty lovers across the world in the last few years, and with good reason! The colours, payoff and longevity of their eyeshadows easily match up to their MAC counterparts. Personally I own the original Naked Palette and The Naked Palette 3, I haven’t yet felt the urge to buy number 2 but I suspect at some point I will, mainly just to complete the collection!
As new eyeshadows have joined my collection, the NPs became somewhat unloved. It wasn’t until I spotted a couple of dupes whilst browsing in Superdrug that I really gave them a second thought.
The Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette 3 is almost identical to the Naked Palette 3 and at just £4 a complete bargain!! I couldn’t resist buying it to see how it compared and it did not disappoint. There are a couple of noticeable differences in that the pigment isn’t as strong so it does require a little more work from your brush. Also, there is a definite amount of fallout, which is easily removed, but a pain nonetheless. Finally, the lightest shade is not really worth bothering with, it has hardly any colour payoff at all. Both palettes come with brushes but steer clear of the cheap, sponge applicators of the Revolution palette, they’re rubbish.
