Urban Decay is discontinuing their best-selling palette, but you can still achieve that perfect nude, smokey eye with one of these lookalikes

The queen of eyeshadow palettes

When Urban Decay launched its very first Naked palette in 2010, the 12 universally-flattering neutrals and range of finishes catapulted it to cult status. Now, one Naked palette is sold every six seconds, and its popularity inspired the launch of three more iterations: Naked2, Naked3 and Naked Heat. There isn’t a beauty junkie in the world who doesn’t own at least one Naked palette, and that’s why when Urban Decay announced last week that they’re discontinuing the original Naked, people were pretty upset. But never fear: there are other palettes that can give you a super similar, smokey eye (and some even ring in a little cheaper). If you’re mourning the loss of the world’s favourite palette, read on to find out what brands make the dupes that can fill that Naked-sized hole in your heart.
