So Who’s Duping Whom? The NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit vs. Urban Decay Naked

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Makeup

nyx nude on nude natural look kit review

Let’s strip, shall we? If you’ve been lusting after the hard-to-find Urban Decay Naked palette, NYX has some potentially great news for you and your wallet.


Swatching the NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit ($11) this afternoon, one of three NYX sets released for summer, I was struck by how similar its shades are to some of the ones in UD’s $44 Naked.

Could it be?? A Naked dupe for one fourth the cost?

It’s not a total dupe, of course (see the comparison swatches below); there are some shades between the two that aren’t anything alike, not in how they look OR feel.

Not surprisingly, I think the Urban Decay shadows feel a little smoother and look more intense on my skin, which is not to say the NYX shadows don’t hold their own. In fact, they hella do.

The NYX colors don’t feel cheap to me at all. Finely milled, they blend nicely and look quite pigmented, especially when compared to a lot of other drugstore shadows in the same price range.

NYX definitely “brought it” with Nude on Nude, but I think UD still brought it better. UD gets the edge, but they’re charging for it too.

Want more NYX? Here’s some earlier coverage…

Oh, here’s something that could almost tip the scales in Nude on Nude’s favor: it doesn’t just come with eyeshadows (like Naked does). NYX also threw in two shimmery lip colors.

Pretty great, right?

Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost Friday… I know I say that all the time, like maybe every Thursday (LOL!), but I’m serious — I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S ALMOST FRIDAY!

Quick question: Where the heck does the time go?

What are you doing tonight? Got any plans? I’m on my way out to a farmer’s market in a town called San Rafael.

    I’m busy busy busy here! In between starting the forum up and running a week’s worth of posts, and then packing boxes from the blog sale – I need to go through my reader also, and return comments. I don’t know where the time goes but there needs to be more hours in the day!
    I don’t know how you do it!
    This is an AWESOME alternative Karen, thanks so much for posting this! I really like NYX – they’re my favorite low-end brand, so it’s nice to know if I need to I can satisfy my craving for the Naked palette with this, if need be!

  3. Resham says:

    I don’t think that the two glosses were needed. They just made the palette Bulky…
    Either ways I am not a fan of cream products and powder products in one palette.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Resham,

      Sometimes that gets on my nerves, too, but NYX did do something right in terms of design — they put the glosses in separate tray, so at least they’re not directly next to the eyeshadows.

  4. lily says:

    hmm both kits are nice but since I dont use a whole lot of neutrals/browns I’d pick the NYX one, cheaper hahaha
    .-= lily’s last blog post… Ethereal =-.

  5. Sarah says:

    Ahhh so similar! No dupe for gunmetal which i really wanted but I guess Ill get that seperately or in pigment form. Thanks so much πŸ™‚

  6. Shiny says:

    I still think I’m leaning towards Naked, I love the quality of UD products. Also, it does come with a brown and black liner and a mini primer potion.

  7. Steph B says:

    I think the NYX Champagne and Caviar palette would also be a good sub. Didn’t stop me from ordering the Naked palette though! Have wanted to try some UD shadows since the testers always feel so silky. And a travel-sized primer will be perfect for my trip next weekend. Now the hard part — waiting for the package to arrive.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Steph,

      I’ll have to look into that one!

      Where are you headed next weekend? I hope it’s somewhere fun.

      BTW, I picked up some white peaches at the farmers market yesterday. I plan on making your spinach/peach/bacon summer salad with them.

      • Steph B says:

        Going to visit my nephew. And my brother and sister-in-law — but mostly my super cute 11 month old nephew.

        My Naked arrived today and I’ve played with it a bit. I wish it came with Bourbon liner but think patting Toasted on top will mimic the look. Sidecar might be my new fav shadow.

        Enjoy the salad. Let me know how it turns out.

  8. Rae says:

    Whoa! The similarities between these two are crazy — too close to be a coincidence, methinks! I love the quality of UD, but I also like that NYX is making such an affordable alternative πŸ™‚

    Have fun at the farmer’s market! I’m on my summer holiday, so… every day is a Friday night!!!

      Hi Rae,

      The farmer’s market was a lot of fun. I ate a yummy dinner (a Greek vegetarian wrap and some kettle corn) and then just walked around.

      How’s your vacay going so far? Got any big plans?

  9. jesssimae says:

    wow thats pretty amazing actually. im just getting into makeup and my collection is 98% nyx lol the naked palette was going to be my first venture into sephora shopping… hmmm decisions decisions

  10. Alex says:

    The UD palette comes with a double sided liner and a primer potion though, so I rather wait for that to come out in stores (: Plus no drugstores around me sell NYX products.
    .-= Alex’s last blog post… How Awesome Would it be to Make a =-.

  11. Diana says:

    Yes! I got the UD Palette as soon as you published it was on Sephora. It’s paid and on it’s way baby! I was flip flopping at first, but I knew it would be sold out just like the Alice In Wonderland Palette. Thanks for reaffirming my purchase. My El Hub doesn’t understand!!!

  12. Jackie says:

    Wow, and to think I would have spent $44 on the Urban Decay one. Psshhh…forget it! lol I’m buying the NYX one.
    .-= Jackie’s last blog post… Sneak Peek MAC Nail Trend F-W 2010 for Fall 2010 =-.

  13. Christina says:

    Looks similar but I think the NYX is warmer and as a rule, warm toned neutrals skew red on me and look funky. I’d probably stick with the UD palette, though $44 is hard to swallow.

  14. Wow, that is so close. Thanks for posting this, I’ve tried to get the UD Naked palette but I’ve been too late twice ! Imma gonna get me to RiteAid tomorrow and pick up the NYX instead. Great find!

    omg karen, seriously, are you my savior this week?! hahahha. i fell in luuurve with the naked palette when you posted it the other day, and i was really ready to splurge on it once it was available, but until then, i am totally gonna try to find this NYX one! only problem is…i don’t know where to find it. i live in NJ, and i haven’t seen the brand anywhere (target, cvs, rite-aid, etc) and i’m getting worried that it’s not in my sights. guess i’ll have to order it online…thanks karen! πŸ™‚

  16. Aparnaa says:

    Again, LOVING this. I’m going to visit my parents this weekend so I can head to the Ulta by me there, then look fabulous for the rest of my life. (Positive thinking?)

    The time goes out the window and runs down the street. I blame adorable kitten pictures.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Aparnaa,

      Have fun visiting your folks this weekend. Are they going to hook you up with some yummy home cooking?

      BTW, I have a weakness for cute kitty pictures (and videos) too.

      • Aparnaa says:

        Ohhh yes they are, thank goodness. Even the homemade pizza my mom makes at home is somehow better than any homemade pizza I ever ate. Believe me, my stomach will thank me, and the too-small dress I bought from Gilt will curse me… but I bet you got GREAT food at the farmer’s market!

        (And let’s be real – kitty pictures/clips are pretty awesome)

    I seriously can’t believe the NAKED palette is sold out already -it was just restocked yesterday!! I posted it on my blog the minute I found out. Gosh, I don’t understand the huge fuss over it. It’s even being sold on Ebay for about $80 ..AND the dang thing isn’t even limited edition (at least from what I’ve heard!)

    The NYX palette looked very similar when it wasn’t swatched side by side. It’s pretty darn good for 1/4 the price though!

    Would you get naked or the new chanel quad. Are the colors from the chanel quad close to the colors in the naked palette ?

  21. Advah says:

    I still like Naked better (the colours look so smooth and nicely shimmery!), but for the price difference I wouldn’t mind picking up the NYX version. I’m not sure I can get it in the UK though, bummer.

    Very happy it’s already Friday here!

      Hi Advah,

      Happy Friday to ya. What do you have planned for the weekend?

      • Advah says:

        Thanks, happy Friday too! πŸ™‚

        I have an acupuncture/massage session booked which I’m very much looking forward to, then a friend is having a clothes swap day at her flat. Should be fun!
        How about you?

      • Karen says:

        Oh, that sounds wonderful. I love an intense massage sesh… I always tell the therapist to work me over like I’m a side of beef, LOL! I love that loose feeling my limbs have afterward, ahh!

        I hope you find some nice things at the swap, btw. I’ve never participated in one of those but heard they can be fun.

        Tonight I’m probably going to the movies w/El Hub to watch Inception. Tomorrow… dinner w/the girls in SF at a Peruvian restaurant. I gotta get in some running, too.

        Hope you’re having a great Friday so far!

  22. ki. says:

    If I can get it online, I’ll try NYX first – it’s so much more pocket friendly πŸ™‚

    I’m planning to go make up shopping as always – for my first mac palette! πŸ˜€ any reccos for nc43 skin? I’m thinking soft brown, cork, handwritten and ricepaper!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ki,

      Sounds like you’re looking for neutrals. You might also want to peep:

      Woodwinked (this is a must… really opens up the eyes when worn on the lid w/Soft Brown in the crease)
      Naked Lunch

      Bamboo (really nice for a matte brow bone)

      • ki says:

        i have only one mac eyeshadow and THAT is woodwinked πŸ˜€

        Thanks for the reccos πŸ™‚ I’ll definitely look into them πŸ™‚

          You’re welcome for the recs. Oh — while you’re there also play with Club. It looks kinda scary in the pan, but it looks GREAT paired w/these MAC neutrals.

    yeh so much differences in price, maybe since urban decay is sold out, nyx wont be a bad choice here

  26. Nina says:

    I just wanted to say … id like both the NYX and the UD palettes pls. LOL.

    Ordered the UD … the NYX im still debating, but I know at some point I will.

    Oh and the Naked paltete is going to be permanent so it will come back up @ the Sephora website … so those who didnt get it yet, will be able to! πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nina,

      Oh gosh, did you ever find your NYX pencils? Please say yes.

      Happy Friday btw! The weekend’s just around the corner, wooo hooo!

        Not yet … πŸ™ Thats why I will most probly order the NYX up there so I can finally get my pencils!

        Happy Friday to you too – cannot wait for the weekend. I intend to do nothing! πŸ™‚

        What are you going to do this weekend?

        • Karen says:

          Dinner w/the girls tomorrow night in SF (Peruvian food), movies with El Hub (Inception) and some cleaning (booooo). πŸ™‚

  27. Pinch says:

    The palette looks really pretty, somehow I’m still sceptical to NYX. It sounds so weird but I’d rather spend the $11 on one MAC eyeshadow pan than get a palette full of NYX. I almost wish it weren’t so! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for being my shopping enabler, LOL. I just ordered this and the bronze kit off of ebay, since no stores around me carry NYX. Got them both, including shipping, for 18 bucks, so I’m a happy camper!

    Also, I cannot believe the Naked UD palette sold out again! Glad I got mine already! :p

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      So I guess we did manage to stress shop togetherÒ€¦ kinda!

      I hope today is better for you. How are you getting around without your car? Did you have to rent one?

      • Tiffany says:

        We can get out online retail therapy on together! I also went shopping today, which made me feel much better πŸ™‚

        My car is still drive-able, but the hubs is working from home so I can borrow his. I’ll have to get a rental once I get the car in the shop. Their insurance co. was supposed to call me by noon today (2 hrs ago) but of course that didn’t happen.

      • Karen says:

        Oh good. Retail therapy works wonders. What did you end up getting?

        Good to hear that the damage to your ride isn’t too bad. I’m glad you are ok! Car crash injuries can take a long time to recover from. I got into a minor one w/my mom in high school and for years after my neck wonky!

        • Tiffany says:

          yeah I was really lucky that I wasn’t hurt at all!

          let’s see, I went to target and got a new covergirl liner (it’s a pencil but is supposed to be like the effect of a liquid?), two shirts, and starbucks bottled frappes! all good things! also got a top at h&m, and used a gift card at VS for a ga tech hoodie (so soft!) and got a free panty and free stuffed dog. it was a great shopping trip!!!

  29. Styrch says:

    Really good comparison here! I’m in love with my Naked Paletted (I’m actually doing a whole week of Naked Palette eyes starting today just to see how much versatility this palette actually has). I don’t know if I can get my hands on the NYX one but I would be curious to compare as well!

    This NYX kit is actually very very similar to the Too Faced Natural Eye Kit

    This is really weird! I would have never known the palettes are similar. Good thing i do because the UD doesn’t seem worth that much. Plus, I was even thinking of getting the Coastal Scents Neutrals palette anyway. But i might try this NYX palette too. πŸ™‚

    I am still leaning towards the Naked Pallete just because i am such a highend makeup snob:) but the NYX pallette still seems pretty nice. I cant wait till I can get my hands on the Naked pallete!!

  42. Faith says:

    I like the colors in both, but I absolutely HATE Urban Decay’s liners, so if I were to choose I’d go with NYX. I don’t really wear neutrals much, though, so I’m going to save my money for now.

  43. Keener says:

    I think I didn’t pay any attention to the Naked Palette until I saw it here. Don’t know why… maybe the stars aligned just right and I realized that YES I DO NEED MORE NEUTRALS in my life.

    I’m always trying to figure out how to work eyeshadow into my work/everyday look. I can’t pull it off, I always put it on way too smokey. I was simple, natural, fresh and I’m hoping the Naked Palette will help me figure it all out (I have high hopes to say the least).

    My post was actually intended to let people know that I got an email from Sephora saying the Naked Palette will be in stores in Canada on July 29th. I personally want both palettes. NYX is a very good brand, but UD eyeshadows/palettes is my weakness. If you have to choose one, I think you can’t go wrong with either – both will satisify a need for neutrals.

    I can’t believe all the awesomeness coming out… I need to budget myself accordingly, I need nothing but want everything!

  45. NeenaJ says:

    I think the biggest thing left out so far is that the UD palette has TWELVE shadows. And the of the 4 extra ones, 2 lean toward neutral purple and 2 lean toward neutral blue/gray. NYX’s shades are all brown. So, in my opinion, you get a lot more looks with the UD palette.

    Also, the UD shadows are full size, so the equivalent would be $204 if purchased separately.

    I don’t mind buying drugstore dupes for shades that I only wear once in a blue moon, but for wearable neutrals, I thing the UD palette is a steal.

  46. Tessa says:

    I just found out that these pallets are available in the Netherlands too! I’m going to order the purple one and this one!

  47. RonyaLii says:

    i like NYX . Ecspecially the jumbo pencils . got them all .
    and i got glitterpowder pigments – add some magic eyeliner from Eyeko and you have beautiful glitter rich eyeliner )

  48. Ciambella says:

    NYX is my favorite drugstore brand, but I’m sort of cautious about the palettes (despite your fantastic swatches of this one!). I have the Champagne & Caviar palette, and it was disappointingly unimpressive. The shadows feel sort of dry, very atypical of NYX shadows in my experience, and wear off fast even with UDPP underneath. I had the same problem with the other NYX “For Your Eyes Only” palette I have, Jazz Night. Champagne & Caviar was especially disappointing, though, because I thought it was going to be my Palette to End All Palettes, but I never use it!

    And then at the same time, I wonder if NYX might have changed their eyeshadow formula for palettes recently–I picked up a new all-matte palette called One Night in Morocco during the recent 20% off Cherry Culture sale, and that soft, creamy texture I’ve grown to expect with the NYX singles is back. So confusing.

    I’m REALLY surprised at how brilliantly similar the Nude Natural Look kit is to the Naked shades! Thanks for the side-by-side! I think I’m going to save up for the Naked palette, though (whenever it comes back), because I love NYX in general but I love Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes a whoooole lot more. I just wish they’d bring back Gridlock from the first Book of Shadows…

    This is an EXACT dupe of Too Faced’s Natural eye pallette. The same eyeshadows even layed out in the same order. just look it up and see for yourself! Still a great dupe!

  50. Karen0127 says:

    Do you buy your NYX locally? I’m in Petaluma so we are neighbors so to speak. The 2 stores in town no longer carry it and am looking for someplace locally that has more than the basics that Longs carried. They are building an Ulta in Santa Rosa and I believe they will carry NYX. Thanks and P.S. Your blog is one of my favorites.

  51. Audrey says:

    I just bought the UD Naked palette! Haven’t received it yet though… I have to say, i’m really intrigued by this NYX palette, especially considering the price. I love how both have a mix of matte and shimmery shades. I hope the UD one has a good basic matte highlight color (like MAC Brule) and something I could potentially use for my brows. Then I definitely would be all set! πŸ˜€

  52. Wow, thanks for comparing the two! I’ve been dying to get my hands on the Naked palette, but for $11, I think I can settle on NYX’s Nude on Nude. πŸ™‚

    Oh! Thank you a million times over for posting this. I live all the way in Mumbai, India, and UD doesn’t retail here (not that I’d spend $44 anyway, it’s a lot in Indian rupees). But Nyx is available and I love the brand. The Nude on Nude v/s Naked is a question I’ve been wondering about all week. I’m so glad someone did comparative swatches, and on NC 35 skin too. I’m one very, very happy NC 40 today.

  54. Annis says:

    I’m definitely going for the NYX–I like how the paler colors aren’t as outright shimmery and I think the warmer tones in that palette would suit me better. Perfect essential colors!! Thanks for sharing!

    Also, am I the only one who saw the lip color swatches and immediately thought of MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and Gaga? Who knows, I might just be imagining it after lusting after the Cyndi color for so long…

  55. bianca says:

    I also have a hard time finding Urban Decay stuff but I read this great article on vegan cosmetics from Urban Decay. Of course, I have not tried it yet but I would like to get your opinion on how vegan cosmetics work on ones skin. Does it hold up just as well as the others or is it less long lasting?

    The NIX one looks better, actually! LOL, I’m not sure, but I don’t love the Naked palette’s packaging at all! the eyeshadows are many but they look crowded and small… πŸ™ But you gotta love Urban Decay, right? πŸ˜‰

    Do you know where I can find the NYX pallette besides online? Don’t think its at Ulta…not sure where else to look! Any feedback would be helpful! Great pallette – awesome find, thanks!

    Great picturs, thanks for the reivew. I might pick this up and play with it until I can get my hands on the Naked!! =)

  65. Wow, that is close! I’m allergic to NYX eyeshadows (haven’t tested this palette though) so I’m happy with my UD palette <3 But this is a good option for sure!

    I have never tried NYX brand. What is the texture like compared to Urban Decay?

  67. Judy says:

    I’ll still probably get the UD Naked palette. Only because I JUST realized that the Nyx Nude on Nude palette has an even scarier resemblance to the Too Faced Natural Eye palette. I’m surprised I didn’t realize it until now!
