Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette Dupes and Comparison

Friday, July 29, 2011

One of the questions that often comes up is "how similar are the shades between Urban Decay's Naked and 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette?".  Since I own both, I figured this would be a good comparison for those who are interested.  You can find individual swatches for the Naked Palette here and the 15th Anniversary Palette here.

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette Swatches and Review

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection is a limited edition palette.  It retails for $55USD and contains 15 brand new eyeshadow shades.  You can purchase this from Urban Decay's website, Sephora counters or online, and at Macy's counters. Some Ulta stores may also carry them as well. 

When the palette first came out, it was immediately sold out.  I was particularly attracted to this palette due to the beautiful packaging and combination of shades.  The other BOS usually have mostly bright shades, which I personally cannot always pull off.

One of the most anticipated and talked about item in Byzance de Chanel is the Rouge Joues Contraste.  It retails for $43USD.  You can purchase this on Chanel's website, at selected Chanel boutiques, or Nordstrom Seattle.  It is certainly not a blush for the color shy.  Rouge is undoubtedly red,  it's not dark pink and definitely not fuchsia.
