NYX vs Urban Decay! Guess Who is the WINNER?
These two eyeshadow palettes have many similar shades. They're both more orangey and brown, suitable for fall and winter use. NYX - Ultimate Shadow Palette's packaging is a light transparent plastic which looks a bit cheap, while URBAN DECAY - Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette's packaging is beautiful and comes with a mirror and eyeshadow brush. NYX has a more solid texture and its metallic shades are not very well pigmented, but the powder doesn't fly everywhere. Urban Decay has a softer and more delicate powder. The metallic shades are well pigmented and highly saturated. From a practicality standpoint, NYX has 16 shades, 7 of them metallic and 9 of them matte. Among them are a few nude shades and eyeliner shades which are sufficient for everyday makeup looks. The Urban Decay palette has 12 shades, 5 of them metallic and 7 of them matte. Basically, NYX has all the shades in the Urban Decay palette and even more, so it's easier to match the shades. Besides, the Urban Decay palette is much more expensive than the NYX palette, so NYX is more suitable for students and beginners. However, if you're looking for better packaging and powder texture, choose Urban Decay instead.
