I'm reliably informed that this is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but having never tried it I can only base my review on this one... and I have to say I'm very impressed!

As you'd expect from a palette that only costs 4.00GBP, some of the colours in this are a bit touch and go. Some apply much better than others, whilst the pigment on a couple of them leave a lot to be desired. Having said that though, overall this is a really good palette for the price and it has a lot of usable, versatile colours in it to choose from.

If you're just starting out experimenting with makeup or aren't willing to pay the higher prices of Urban Decay, MAC, Clinique et al. then I would certainly recommend giving the MUA palettes a try. They have others in the range which I also own and overall I've been really pleased with them.

This is a perfect dupe for Urban Decay Naked palette! The shadows are not as good quality, but for £4 they are still really pigmented and work really well. I find them to be very smooth, they are not powdery and hardly have any fall out. Amazing value!

I love this palette!! I have been wanting the Naked palette for ages but still haven't got round to purchasing. When I heard that MUA were coming out with a dupe I was excited to check it out. I have some of their single eyeshadows and the pigmentation is great so I expected these to be good too. And they really are! The colours are so lovely, pretty damn close to the Naked colours. I mostly use the brown shades for everyday wear but the other shades are great too for a more dramatic look. I am hoping to purchase the Naked palette soon but for now I am really enjoying this palette which is just a fraction of the price!

In this palette the colors are great, neutral and everyday wearable. I love the neutral shades and the texture of the eye shadow. It's great for a simple everyday make up look.

Ok so a palette for £4 obviously won't be perfect, but it comes pretty close... for £4 you get a lovely range of shades, great for blending together to get a different look each time. You can go for a light base with a darker crease, or dark base with an even darker crease! Also has nice light creamy colours which are great for highlighting underneath your eyebrow and in the corner of your eye. As I've read in other reviews, you get a lot of fallout and excess powder on your brush (and your face!). So you have to wipe it off and I tend to blow the brush before applying. One great benefit to that though is that you always get a lot of product onto your brush - you get eyeshadows sometimes where there's no fallout whatsoever but then you have to dig your brush into the eyeshadow so much just to get some pigment! been there? Also because of this, it means it will run out quicker, but for £4 it's not a big issue. I have 6 palettes from MUA now and they're all lovely!

I love this palette. I have wore it everyday since i got it. The value for money is incredible! It is only £4. You got 12 shades exactly the same as the Naked 2 Palette i think it is. The pigmentation is great, some arent so great but most are. I would recommend this to anyone. The packaging is just average but who cares about that. Definately buy this!

I rushed to buy this after seeing some video reviews which compared each shade to the Naked palette. I do not own the UD palette and would not invest so much money in one product (especially since I have so many products already) so I figured out I could give this a try. Man, you cannot go wrong with it! the colors are beautiful and really easy to pair to create everyday looks. I love the combinations you can make with it and with a good primer it lasts the whole day for me. the consistency it's not the creamiest but it's also not bad considering it is so cheap. really easy to carry around as well since it's so compact, even though I find the packaging it's not the best and tends to be a bit too fragile. definetly a great buy for its price, and MUA often has discount and free products so it's just a good staple to keep in your collection.

Love the pigmentation, amazing price, really nice colours and a great dupe for the UD naked palette, only fault is that the packaging can sometimes be difficult to open and can chip my nail polish!

If you're looking for a neutrals pallette that is affordable, highly pigmented and versatile you have come to the right place. The MUA Undressed pallette is by far my favourite drug store pallette. With 10 shimmery shades and two matte shades there are so many variations of looks you can make without falling into the cycle of having the same eye makeup every day which I know I did before I puchased this pallette. This product is supposedly a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Pallettes and looking back to when I lusted over the U.D pallettes I don't know why this pallette never crossed my mind. Considering this is only £4 the pigmentation is unfaultable (in my opinion I would go on to say it is almost up there with the standard of the MAC shadows) For girls that, like me, that are not so sure on stepping out of the neutral eyes safety zone, this is perfect. This pallette, although full of neutral shades is in no way boring and is absolutely lovely regardless of what combination you choose. Overall, a lovely pallette which I grab for on a daily basis.
