Unless you've been living under a makeup-free rock for the last couple of years, you've probably been hearing about (and wanting!) the Urban Decay Naked Palette as much as I have. The reason it's so popular? The Naked Palette has an amazing selection of neutral tones that not only look gorgeous, but have awesome pigmentation on the eyes as well. The only downside to this perfect palette? The $50 price tag.
That's why I've decided to put together a list of all of the best Naked Palette dupes that I have tried out! Some of the palettes I will be mentioning are also a dupe for the Naked 2 Palette or the latest in the Naked series, Naked Basics. I know everyone has a preference between them, so I figured I might as well include all three in the mix!
Sephora Primal Instincts Eyeshadow Palette- $28
The Primal Instincts Palette is seriously one of the best dupes I've found for the Naked Palette. From the golden champagne of Half Baked to the frosty blue of Gun Metal, all the shades you need for the perfect dupe can be found right here. It's a bit more pricey than some of the other palettes I'll be mentioning, but still about half the price of Naked!
As you guys know, I am an absolute e.l.f. junkie. So when this palette first came out, I seriously could not order it fast enough. It has all the colors you'd find in Naked and Naked 2 (and a whole lot more!) for a ridiculously affordable price.
This palette by Nyx is actually one of my most-used because I love the quality and color payoff of the eyeshadows. Some of the colors may not be exact dupes, but there are others that are literally almost exact matches in color and velvety-smooth application.
Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette- $13 (On Sale!)
So I know this palette is absolutely ginormous and a little overwhelming- but hear me out. The 88 Warm is not only a dupe for the Naked Palette, but also pretty much any other natural eyeshadow palette out there. I mean, is there any color that's not included in there? I know this one won't be good for on-the-go use like Naked, but it makes up for it by being an amazing value.
This palette by Sonia Kashuk is actually a really great dupe for the Naked Basics Palette. All of the colors are matte, which is great for anyone who is not a fan of the frosty or shimmery shades found in most palettes. Plus, for $7 less than Naked Basics you get twice the color selection!
MUA Undressed Palette- £4 (approximately $6)
This palette was reader-submitted by Kitty. I have not tried it myself so I cannot speak for quality, however the color selection is absolutely spot-on! Thanks Kitty!
This is a reader submission from Taylor. I have not tried this exact palette, but all of the Forever 21 eyeshadow palettes I have tried have been super pigmented and really good quality! Thanks for the suggestion, Taylor!
This gorgeous little Naked dupe was submitted by Elle! While it may be missing some of the cooler tones found in Naked like the frosty pinks and purples, it certainly has a great selection of golds and browns that are very similar!
That's all for my favorite Naked Palette Dupes! If you've found any other palettes you think are a good dupe, please feel free to let me know in the comments down below! I'd love to add some more reader-submitted ideas to this post!
