Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 6.52.35 PM.png

I bought the Coastal Scents Revealed Palettes 1 and 2 during their 50% off Black Friday deal. I purchased them mainly to see how they compared to the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. Usually, the Revealed Palettes are $20, which is super awesome because you're getting 20 shadows in the palette. I got them for $10 each! Who could pass that up? Anyway, lets see how well of a dupe the Revealed Palette is for the Urban Decay Naked Palettes....

Overall: 

Some dupes are close, some are spot on, some look more similar in the pot than they do swatched. Overall though, these colors are all in the same family as the Urban Decay Naked ones, which allows you to create pretty much identical looks. Along with the shades being practically the same, the pigmentation and quality is comparable as well. The Revealed shadows are really creamy and not chalky at all. What surprised me the most was the matte shadows. Usually cheap matte eye shadows  barely show up and are super chalky. Not these, they have an amazing texture and pigmentation. 

If you don't want to spend $52 on one Urban Decay Naked Palette, the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette is a great alternative. You're getting 20 shadows for $20, or 20 shadows for $10 if you get it on sale. This would also make an awesome, affordable gift for anyone who has an interest in makeup and likes their natural makeup looks. To anyone who was unsure about the Revealed Palette, be sure now, because it is an amazing dupe for Urban Decay and a great palette for anyone's collection.
