MUA Undress Me Too Palette - Review, Swatches

The MUA Undress Me too Palette aka the poor man's Naked 2, was launched sometime back and I got hold of it last week. I don't own either of the Naked palettes and honestly, don't think I would ever. Just can't bring myself to spend nearly 50 dollars on an eye shadow palette! And if the dupes are this great why even bother right?? :)

The Undress Me too Palette is priced at £3 and contains 12 eye shadows of different finishes in a sleek palette that is perfect for travelling. Thankfully, the shades have all been given names this time so it's much easier to refer to. Not all shades are similar in pigmentation though. In general, the ones with the metallic finish are much more pigmented than the normal and matte shadows and they are also much softer in their formula. I also find the bottom row shades to be better in pigmentation as well. As with all palettes, the brush is useless.

Here's a breakdown of each shade and their formula. I have not used a primer in the pics so that you can see the true colors.

Top Row - 

From L to R - Naked, Devotion, Shy, Fiery, Lavish, Dreamy

Naked - A matte cream shade that's not very pigmented. In fact, it is quite chalky and powdery

Devotion - A matte gold with a metallic finish and well pigmented

Shy - Shimmery equivalent of Naked

Fiery - A metallic copper and one of my favorite shades. Color pay off of this one is pretty good

Lavish - A matte muddy brown. This one I like the least because of how chalky it is. 

Dreamy - Warm golden brown with a metallic finish. Love this one too.

Bottom Row -

From L to R - Tranquil, Exposed,Reveal,Wink,Obsessed,Corrupt

Tranquil - Another shimmery gold. Low in pigmentation but very soft and buttery

Exposed - A light grey shimmery silver with ok pigmentation

Reveal - A cool toned silver 

Wink - Another metallic bronze that I love

Obsessed - A deep chocolate brown with slight shimmer. The color is beautiful but slightly drier than the other mattes.

Corrupt - A black deeply pigmented matte

I don't have the Naked 2 palette so can't really give you a comparison of both but from what I've seen of Undress Me Too, it's great value for money. Not all shades are equal in pigmentation and some are slightly ashen and chalky as well but overall, I'm happy. The shadows last for a long time and I've not faced any problem with creasing or fading even after wearing these for six hours. If you don't want to spend money on Naked, get Undress. 

Have you tried the MUA Undress Me Too Palette?
