I always want to have the expensive make up many beauty bloggers have, it looks so beautiful! Unfortunately, I'm a broke student so I have to do it with budget brands. Sometimes I like to treat myself by buying ebay dupes which are cheap but have the colours I like. Like this time, I bought this Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe palette on Buyincoins for... about €4,-. Of course it's not the same as buying the real deal, but I like to live in that fantasy for now. I don't have the real palette to compare, but I'll give you my (amateuristic) opinion on this piece of make up!
When I opened it I was surprised and happy. The package looked beautiful, the colours looked good and in good condition, and it looked very professional and... real. I really love the tin packaging! It looks very professional.
The colours look very beautiful. Most are shimmery but Foxy and Tease are matte. These are great colours to make natural looks to begin with, and the shimmery colours are great for an extra effect! I also love how the colours are mostly rather natural but vary from very basic to a little more spicy.
The pigmentation is fine for the price you pay for it, if you ask me. Of course it could have been better, but it could've been worse too! Tease is a little dissapointing though... But I do love Chopper and Halfbaked!
Unfortunately the last 6 colours are dissapointing. At least, the shimmer and dark colours made me expect more. But if you compare it to the first colours, it's not better or worse. Blackout is very dark, I love!
The pigmentation overall isn't great, but it's fine for daily casual looks. Also, I used them with an eye shadow base, and that really boosts the colour! The brush that came with it isn't the best too. It has two ends, a fluffy round one and a flat one. The fluffy one is great for blending though and I use it a lot too. The flat end doesn't take in a lot of product so it's not very useful... But I've used this palette often since I got it and I still love it!

+ The everyday colours

So overall I'm very happy with this purchase! Of course I'd rather have the real one, but for those shabby girls like me out there I'd defenitely reccommend it!
