Morning Makeup Musings #68

Did ABH accidentally release the new UD Naked palette early? 😩

Back when Urban Decay announced that it was discontinuing the original Naked Palette with the grandeur of a funeral, lots of people speculated that it would soon be releasing a new palette in its place. They were right, but were they expecting this?

Here’s the thing…the new Naked Reloaded looks a lot like the Sultry palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is a neutral palette with a pop of coral. First of all, coral was a random shade for Sultry. Now to see it here in this context is just….


The fact that it’s an ABH dupe aside, another thing I noticed about this palette is what its missing. All of the other Naked palettes have dual-ended brushes included. This one does not. What it does have, though, it bigger pan sizes on some of the shades expected to be most popular.

I think I am going to go ahead and skip this release. I thought about getting it because I like the colors (obviously since I already have the Sultry palette), but…I already have the Sultry palette. Idk. If this were another brand, like Bad Habit, would I support such a close (*cough* exact *cough*) copy of a palette. 😬

What do you guys think? Will you grab it over (or in addition to) the Sultry palette? Do the (nominally) larger pan sizes make up for the lack of  brush? Let’s chat in the comments below!
