I haven’t tried the Return of Sexy palette, but in general, I think that Urban Decay colors tend to show a little brighter and last a little bit longer. I still love the Too Faced products I have, but I probably wouldn’t shell out the $35 for more.
I think the Naked 2 would probably be best for your coloring, as long as you like shimmery colors. I actually thought about the Lorac palette, but I couldn’t quite get on board with the colors.
I have a slight new found addiction to makeup. I am a huge huge fan of the original Naked palette, and the Lorac pro palette. I feel like the naked 2 has a few cute colors but is really like Dirty Dancing 2…painful & unnecessary. I’m also in love with this YouTube channel below…she shows how to wear & apply different looks, as well as a ton of other things…I Just LOVE her channel, & she uses these palettes on herself, so maybe that will help you decide??? But I for one am a huge fan of Urban decay naked 1….its perfect for any skin tone, and theres seriously a million different looks you can create!
I like the urban decay eyeshadows more (more pigment, longer lasting) but I felt that they didn’t always fit the sitution so the smashbox was more professional (ie no glitter, more matte) for work and daytime. I also do really love the cream liners so that was a bonus
I was just on the smashbox site and they have a bunch of others in the $60 range that are like 48 eyeshadows… can’t go wrong with that!
The naked palette is like $50 something dollars…..I went on Ebay and got it for $6.00 cheaper! I love deals!!!!!! haha, but be super careful that you order from someone reputable, and that it looks like a velvety purple case and not the knock off one!!!!!
I have the Naked palettes 1&2, and have a few Too Faced palettes.
LOOOOVE the Naked palettes, both are great!! The Too Faced palettes are meh. The colours have shitty staying power and always so much fall out. I realllly want to try the Lorac palette, I have heard great things about it.
NYX has a palette called Nude on Nude, a dupe of the Naked palette. Check it out. Looks even better IMO and waaay cheaper! Never tried it but heard its pretty good.
