50 Shades of Nudes featuring W7 and Urban Decay (Nude Palettes)

Every blogger has a nude palette or six in their arsenal, they are the quick, fail safe options that can never go wrong. I jumped on the Naked palette bandwagon quicker than you could say 'blogger hype', and believe me they are worth the hype! I just can't get enough of nude shadows!

Shades: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal

This palette is by far my favourite out of the Naked Trio, it's what I reach for the most. For everyday wear, I'd reach for the paler shades, I just apply one shade over the lid and blur the edges with a fluffy brush, Sidecar is a perfect shade for this. For a night out, I tend to blend three or four of the smokier shades together. Smog and Darkhorse are perfect for the outer V and along the lower lash line for added drama to the eyes.
As you can see I've used up Virgin, it's the perfect highlight colour for me, although I do think there are plenty more affordable versions from the high street of this shade.

Nude Eyeshadow Palettes, Urban Decay and W7

Shades: Foxy, Half Baked, Booty Call, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout

This is my second choice in the Naked Palettes, the shades more wearable than the Naked 3 but I just don't find myself reaching for it. I've not really touched Blackout and Busted, I love YDK though, I like to apply this over the lid and then use Smog and Darkhorse from the original Naked and blend for a super smoky eye look.

Shades: Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, Blackheart

This is my least used Naked Palette, unfortunately the pinky hues don't suit my pale skin tone, they make my eyes look red and irritated. I can't wear a few of the shades teamed with more brown toned shadows, this helps balance the colours. I would say save your money, if thinking of buying this palette.

Every time a new Naked Palette was released, bloggers would go on a hunt for similar, more affordable palette on the market. This W7 one is under £5 and has a great range of neutral shades that will suit everyone. This palette doesn't really have any dramatic shades so it would be more for a day time look but you can see it makes an excellent dupe for some of the shades in the Naked palettes.

Well if you counted there wasn't actually 50 shades of nude in this post, perhaps I should buy another palette to even out the numbers!

Have you got any of these palettes? Any new ones you'd recommend to me?
