Naked 3 Dupe

After receiving a Urban Decay Volume 2 palette for christmas a few years ago, I fell in love with the quality of their products, their eyeshadow is some of the most vibrant and long-lasting I've ever used. There has been for as long as I can remember, a massive hype over the Naked palettes but as much as I love them I just can't justify spending that much on them. If you're in the same position as I was then despair no longer as there is a perfect dupe out there for a tenth of the price.

I found this dupe on a website called T-Mart and it's safe to say, after having previous bad experiences with ordering off sites like this, that I was pretty sure it would be a terrible waste of money. But, I still went ahead and placed the order, only to be sure I had been scammed after nothing arrived for a month. After almost 2 months a little package came through just the other day and it's safe to say I was pretty relieved. 

The palette really is the perfect dupe, even down to the brush and the packaging! I chose Naked 3 as it has warmer tones than some of the other palettes which I prefer personally. All of the shades are practically identical and hold the same vibrant opacity when applied that the real Naked shades do. The only not-so-great aspect of the pallet is the mirror, although I don't really think you could call it that, it's more like a piece of shiny plastic that vaguely shows a pretty blurry reflection.

Considering I only paid £3.60 for this I have to say I am extremely impressed, the eyeshadows themselves are great and the mirror isn't a big deal for me. I may have to order myself their other dupes of Naked 1 & 2 seeing as they're just as cheap!

Which out of the 3 is your favourite Naked palette and would you ever use a dupe as a cheaper alternative?
