NYX vs Urban Decay! Guess Who is the WINNER?

scarlet1992
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.

turn up the HEAT with this dupe🔥
not trying to trash urban decay because obviously i love the brand but i was so happy i found this heat palette dupe! it’s THREE times LESS expensive (WILDFIRE- ICON BY ABSOLUTE: $12.99 vs UD HEAT PALETTE: $54.00) and i love the quality of this product. the shades are rich and they don’t fade after a day’s wear even without eyeshadow primer. i found this gem of a palette at tj maxx but i will definitely be purchasing it again from https://absolutenewyork.com/products/icon-eyeshadow-palette?variant=24504011030628 if you’re on a budget or just getting into makeup and don’t want to spend uber money, this palette is perfABSOLUTE - ABSOLUTE Icon Palette URBAN DECAY - Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette • photo creds of heat palette from https://www.ulta.com

Orange You Glad It’s Almost Fall? 🍊 🍁
🍑 SWIPE FOR PHOTOS 🍑 Hi beautiful! I created this fall inspired look today even though it is blazing hot in California right now. This heat wave got the temperature up to 90s in San Francisco! I am definitely over it. I am ready for sweater weather, scarves, pumping candles and high knee boots 😍 I used my Naked Heat palette to create this look. This palette reminds me of autumn leaves that’s why I picked it up. I believe this is the perfect transition from summer to fall palette. It is so warm toned that it can be used in the summer, but can also used in the fall because of its red tones. Another palette that I love that has similar tones and is more affordable is Colourpop’s California Love palette. You can still create a similar look if you don’t own this baby. COLOURPOP - California Love Warm Golden Bronze Eyeshadow Palette I used: -Sauced (transition) -Low blow (to deepen the transition) -Cayenne (crease and lower lash) -En fuego (deepen up crease) -Ashes (outer v and lower lash) -Scorched (mid lid) -Lumbre (inner lid) -Ounce (inner corner and brow highlight) -Stila liquid liner -Essence Lash Princess mascara -House of lashes in the style “demure lite” I am excited to create cool toned looks, Halloween looks and red tones this season!

Natasha Denona Mini Palette, Gold VS. Glam, Which one I prefer?
Natasha Denona Mini Palette, Gold VS. Glam, Which one I prefer?
NATASHA DENONA - Gold Palette It has the best eyeshadow base shade I've used so far. It's a natural gray-brown shade that has a more copper tone compared to the MAC Omega eyeshadow shade. It cements on and doesn't slide easily, so you can even do without an eyeshadow primer for eye makeup that lasts all day. I normally use its second dark brown shade as an eyeliner and it works perfectly. I use the gold shimmery shade to highlight eye makeup by building it on. Its main green shade is the shade I use the most. It has a gray tone to it and I normally use it to darken the inner and outer corners of my eyes. As a darker version of the Naked 2 Night Time eyeshadow, the last metallic gray shade is really distinctive.     NATASHA DENONA - Mini Glam Eyeshadow Palette Its highlight shade is very shimmery. Its darkest shade is not very smooth or saturated. Its base color is too close to my skin tone and the color payoff isn't great. All the other shades are more of a gray tone and are also boring, so I don't really like them. I prefer the Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette.

smashbox - Photo Edit Eye Shadow TrioI am such a sucker for packaging and the first thing I noticed about the shadows was that the container really fits in with their “photo edit” theme. 💗💗 As for the shadows, the texture is super pigmented and creamy. It glided on the skin like butter. I love a natural eye look, so I picked 4  everyday shades. Swipe to see the swatchs, outdoor (the upper) VS. indoor (the lower). 💕Tag Me is a red-brown palette with plum, looks very summery. 💕I think Nudie Pic is a must-have one, it has some awesome workable mattes that are wonderful to use as base and transition colours. When I am running short on time or want to keep my make-up simple but gorgeous, this fair nude trio is a no-brainer for me. 💕Pic Me can be used to build a feminine pink look. The sparks are really beautiful. 💕I find myself reaching for Holy Crop the most when I’m looking for a striking eye combination and I really love the burgundy shimmer in the right upper corner. Although you have to buy the little trios separately and not like one big eyeshadow palette, I still love them.

COLOURPOP-FEM ROSA - KARRUECHE X COLOURPOP Price: $18 This palette is a straight-up warm and a hint of the neutral colour like. I personally recommend this palette out of all the colour pop palettes. This swatch has six mattes in it. It also has the shade ‘Ladylike’, you can set your eye primer with this and that’s what I have to do with this shade. It’s kind of like creamy light banana shade. You can also use this to highlight your brow bone and your inner corner if you want a matte highlight. ‘Chick’: if you want to highlight your brow bone with it, it is more gold and it’s glitterier. It also has some nice ledge shades, like ‘Dainty’, ‘Mademoiselle’, and ‘Empress’. You get 4 transition shades: ‘Dear’, ‘Missy’, ‘Damsel’ and ‘Duchess’. The first three shades are warmer, and ‘Duchess’ is more neutral. So, you have that option definitely with transition shades it really directs where your look is going. Naked Heat Collection by Urban Decay Price: $54 It is definitely warm tones too. It has 12 rectangular shape shadows, a large mirror, and a double-sided brush as usual. The shades set up from light to dark. I’m going to quote urban decay on this, it says this is the most shade driven Naked palette urban decay has ever created. And I completely agree with that. These shades in this are very monochromatic. There are too many ‘RED’ in it. It only has four shades are neutral and one shade is kind of purple. There are 7 matte shades and 5 shimmer shades. In terms of the shade, the two palettes are similar. Urban Decay is more expensive, but I don't think it performs better. If you want to travel with one of them, I think you'll prefer COLOURPOP because it's much lighter in weight.

DUPE for Urban Decay Naked Heat palette!
DUPE for Urban Decay Naked Heat palette!
Urban Decay Naked Heat palette is very popular. As an eyeshadow palette, it is a little bit expensive. I find NYX contour intuitive palette CIP 02 is very similar to Naked Heat but the price of NXY is only a quarter of Naked Heat. I would like to compare the two brand and to see if NXY could replace Naked Heat.  Naked Heat I like the packaging of the naked heat palette. It's so cool and so unique. Customers can get 12 colours from light to dark, from warmer to cooler. It comes with a double-ended brush, fluffy blending brush on one side and a flat brush on the other side. I like warm eyeshade and the colours in this palette are so pretty. I love it because it is so much suited to my style. It can last a very long time even without a primer. It is easy to blend and colours work beautifully with each other. The colours are very pigmented and hard to fall out. I also enjoy choosing colours for different occasions, from daily routine markup to nightclub markup. It is so useful for different eye looks and suits my brown eyes nicely.  Naked Heat’s dupe, NYX contour intuitive cip02 has 6 eyes shadows, highlights and blush. I will be only be talking the eyeshadows in the palette, which are the six colours on the right.   It provides warm and natural looks. The colours are very close to Naked Heat.  The first colour on the first row of NYXis very close to “ounce” of Naked Heat.  “ounce” has tiny sheen while NYX has a flat matter. They are very similar but I prefer Naked Heat one because it is warmer and shining.  “sauced” of Naked Heat and the third colour on the first row of NYX looks similar. Although the colours are very closed, Naked Heat is much more pigmented than NYX.  “lumbre” is a very gorgeous, stunning warm gold from Naked Hear. It is very close to the second colour of the first row of NYX. Beyond my expectation, NYX shows better pigmented and much warmer than Naked Heat, which surprised me a lot.  The problem is that NYX  does not last very long and easily fall out. Although the colours are very similar between the two palettes, Naked Heat is better than NYX for good pigment, long-lasting and the lovely feeling on my eyes, especially the silky smooth feel around the delicate eye area. I don't think NXY could replace Urban Decay Naked Heat.
