In one of my posts from last week, I had mentioned that the Wet n Wild Nude Awakening palette looked very familiar to another popular eye palette.  Well, as you may have guessed, that palette is Urban Decay's Naked.  Six of the eight Wet n Wild colors are either nearly exact dupes or realistic swaps for colors in the UD palette (the closest matches are swatched above). 

While the Naked palette is really great, it comes in at $50.  If you're not one to spend the cost of a good meal on a makeup product, the Wet n Wild Nude Awakening is a great alternative and only $4.99.  Not too shabby as the Wet n Wild version encompasses all the very usable shades of the UD palette (in my opinion anyway) for ONE TENTH of the price.  

The only thing that's a little tricky is that Nude Awakening can be difficult to get ahold of.  Not only does WnW only sell in North America, it seems that only certain stores carry their limited edition items.  However, they are re-releasing this lil gem so hopefully you can find it somewhere!

Do you have either of these palettes?  What do you like/dislike about them?


Thank you for the comment! I really appreciate it :)
