I’ve had the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette on my wishlist for a while now, but since I’m trying hard not to spend too much I decided to settle for the dupe instead. I purchased this W7 In The Nude eyeshadow palette from Amazon for around £5.60 which is such good value for so many shades. I own the original Naked palette and I couldn’t help but compare the two, even though I wasn’t expecting the W7 to be quite as good quality-wise, since it was a fraction of the price.
The eyeshadows come in a tin case which reminds me of the pencil cases I used to have in school! I like the rose gold packaging, and I don’t mind that it seems a little cheap (because it was!) It comes with a small brush and sponge applicator – I only use the brush end, which is good for precise application, especially for the lower lashline. I use a separate fluffier brush for blending. On the back of the tin are little images of the shades along with their names.
I chose this palette over the other W7 palettes for the more pinky tones and as you can see from the photos above, the palette consists of 12 shades, ranging from cream to pink to brown to dark purple. There are both matte and shimmery shades which would all compliment each other, so you can mix and match to create so many different looks. Some of them are really pretty and the ones that stood out to me straight away include Angel, a glittery pale pink, Copper Pot which is a shimmery light pink, Sun Kissed, a shimmery soft golden shade and Alice which is a beautiful matte mauve. I can definitely see myself using all of the colours.
The formula of these eyeshadows are good, although I’ve found them to be not quite as creamy or pigmented as the Naked palette, but they are buildable and just about as good – I don’t think most people would see a difference in quality to be honest.
Below are two different looks I created using the W7 palette.
For this first look I used Copper Pot over the whole lid, Alice on the outer corner and then dabbed Angel over the middle using my ring finger, before using a fluffy brush to blend the edges.
For this second look I applied Sunkissed over the whole lid and then Coffee Cup on the outer corner and a little under the lower lashes, then highlighted my brow bone with Latte.
Overall I’m really happy with In The Nude and it has some fantastic shades at good quality, and it’s such great value! I’ve found the shadows to be long-lasting too. If you’re thinking about buying this palette or any of the other W7 palettes I recommend you do, I’m sure you won’t regret it.
I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful in some way. Do you own any W7 eyeshadow palettes? Thank you for reading! XO
