Palette battle: Sephora IT Palette in nude vs. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Hello everyone!

Today it is time for a palette battle:
I want to show you an eyeshadow palette which I got during my last holidays at Sephora, as the titel says the Sephora IT Palette and I also want to compare it to the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette which I am using on a daily basis since about 1 year.

I went to Sephora cause I wanted to get the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette but it was completely sold out. So I went through Sephora and found the last piece of the IT Palette in nude and I had to take it.

The palette is from the colors similar to the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Both palettes include 12 colors: highligthers, brown, grey, bronze, shimmery, matte and darker colors. The Naked 2 has a very beautiful gold shade named "half baked" (one of my all time favourite color) - the Sephora IT Palette doesn't have any comparable golden color in it but it has two rosé colors that are very nice, which you don't have in the Naked 2 Palette. (If you are looking for something rosé you would have to buy the Naked 3 Palette).

I did color swatches for you guys where you can see that both palettes contain shimmery and matte shades from light to dark. You can do a lot of different looks with both palettes from natural daytime make up up to smokey eyes, nighttime or clubbing make up. I do love neutral colors in general that's why I absolutely had to get this palette.

I noticed that the pigmentation of the Naked 2 Palette is better than the pigmentation of the Sephora IT Palette but for me it is ok to use.

Packagingwise is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette in a very solid metal tin box. I leave mine open all of the time cause I have problems with closing it. I always have to press it very hard together to be able to close it which bothers me a lot to be honest. With the Naked 2 Palette you get a synthetic hair eyeshadow brush and a mini version of the Naked Lipgloss. They eyeshadow brush is quite ok, but I still prefer to use my Sigma eyeshadow blending brush because the results get smoother. The mini lipgloss is very very minty tasting, which is not everybody's thing. The minty smell was so intensive that my boyfriend asked me: what is smelling so weird in here? *lol* You can guess that I am not wearing that gloss anymore after this. The color of the gloss is very neutral, fitting to the palette, but it doesn't blow me away because if I would wear any no-name shiny gloss it would look the same.
The Sephora IT Palette has a elegant brown reptile-leather look packaging with a comfy magnetic closure, it is very easy to open and close it compared to my Naked 2 Palette. With this palette you also get an eyeshadow brush and also a brown eyeliner pencil. Again here I don't use the eyeshadow brush, because I always use my Sigma eyeshadow blending brush. The brown eyeliner pencil is pretty, but when it comes to duration I already had better ones, but it is ok. The eyeliner pencil make much more sense for me than the very strong minty lipgloss.
The Sephora IT Palette has a protection sheet over they eyeshadows on which is marked where and how to use which shadow. I think this is very helpful and a nice little detail that the Naked Palettes don't feature in genreal.

For the Sephora IT Palette I paid 32,- US Dollars which is awesome in comparison to the Naked 2 Palette which is sold for 52,- US Dollars.

The bottom line is that my personal winner is the Naked 2 Palette because the pigmentation of the eyeshadows is better than the pigmentation of the Sephora IT Palette, but I also like to use the IT Palette again and again, so I can recommend both palettes.

If you are on a smaller budget and you don't want to spend 52 or more Dollars for a nice nude eyeshadow palette then you can definately buy the Sephora IT Palette, you get a lot of pretty shades for a good price.

I really hope that you like my little review from today and I wish you guys a great remaining day!

Read you next time!
Lots of love,

Hallo liebe Leute!

Heute ist es an der Zeit für ein Paletten-Battle und möchte ich euch eine Lidschatten Palette vorstellen, wie der Titel schon sagt, die Sephora IT Palette und sie auch gleichzeitig mit der Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette vergleichen, die ich seit ca. 1 Jahr fast täglich benutze.

Ich bin ursprünglich zu Sephora rein weil ich mir die Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette holen wollte, allerdings hatte ich Pech, denn diese war komplett ausverkauft. Ich bin also im Sephora Shop ein wenig herumgetigert und habe dann das letzte Stück der Sephora IT Palette in nude entdeckt und dann auch gleich zugeschlagen.

Die Palette ist von den Farben ähnlich zu der Naked 2 Palette. Beide Paletten beinhalten 12 Farben, darunter: highlighter, braun, grau, bronze, schimmernde und dunkle Töne. Die Naked 2 Palette hat einen wunderschönen gold Ton namens "half baked" (eine meiner absoluten Lieblingsfarben) - die Sephora IT Palette hat leider keinen vergleichbaren Goldton, aber sie hat dafür 2 schöne rosé Farben, die wiederum die Naked 2 Palette nicht hat. (Da müsste man sich dann die Naked 3 kaufen, wenn man von Urban Decay so etwas haben möchte).

Ich habe für euch color swatches gemacht, wie ihr sehen könnt enthalten beide Paletten schimmernde und matte Farben von hell bis hin zu dunkel. Man kann mit beiden Paletten verschiedene Looks schminken vom natürlichen Tagesmakeup bis hin zu dunklen Smokey eyes oder Abendlooks. Ich liebe so neutrale Farben generell total, weswegen ich mir diese Palette dann letztendlich gekauft habe.

Ein wesentlicher Unterschied, den ich bemerkt habe ist, dass die Pigmentierung bei der Naked 2 besser ausfällt als bei der Sephora IT Palette, aber die IT Palette reicht für meine Zwecke.

Von der Verpackung her ist die Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette in einer stabilen Metallbox. Ich lasse meine immer offen, da ich hier Probleme mit dem Schließen habe, ich muss da total fest zusammendrücken, dass die Box einrastet, was mich zugegeben sehr nervt. Im Lieferumfang der Naked 2 Palette bekommt man einen Kunsthaar Lidschattenpinsel und eine Miniversion des Naked Lipglosses. Der Lidschattenpinsel ist für einen Kunsthaarpinsel gar nicht mal so schlecht, allerdings verwende ich trotzdem lieber zum Verblenden meines Lidschattens einen Blendepinsel von Sigma, da wird mein Ergebnis weicher. Der kleine Mini Lipgloss riecht total minzig und damit meine ich wirklich sehr sehr minzig, das mag sicher nicht jeder. Der Geruch war so intensiv, dass mich mein Freund gleich gefragt hat, was riecht denn hier so komisch, als ich den das erste und letzte Mal getragen habe. *lach* Die Farbe des Mini Lipglosses ist sehr neutral, passend zur Palette, jedoch haut mich das Ergebnis nicht vom Hocker, da ich ebenso gut einen no-name transparent Lipgloss verwenden könnte und es würde gleich aussehen.
Die Sephora IT Palette hat eine elegante braune Reptil-Leder Optik Verpackung mit einem praktischen magnetischen Verschluss, der sich ganz leicht öffnen und schließen lässt. Im Lieferumfang dieser Palette erhält man ebenfalls einen Lidschattenpinsel und einen braunen eyeliner Kajal. Der braune Kajal ist gar nicht so schlecht, ich hatte zwar schon bessere von der Haltbarkeit her, aber er ist ebenfalls ok und macht für mich mehr Sinn als der minzige Lipgloss.
Die Sephora IT Palette hat eine transparente Schutzfolie, auf der schön markiert ist, welcher Lidschatten für was am besten geeignet ist. Ich finde das ist ein schönes kleines hilfreiches Detail, das die Naked Paletten gar nicht haben.

Vom Preis her habe ich für die Sephora IT Palette umgerechnet ca. 28,- Euro bezahlt, was ich im Gegensatz zu der Naked 2 Palette toll finde, da ich für diese umgerechnet ca. 48,- Euro bezahlt habe.

Mein Fazit:
Mein persönlicher Gewinner ist derzeit immer noch die Naked 2 Palette, da ich die Pigmentierung der Lidschatten einfach besser finde, jedoch verwende ich die Sephora IT Palette auch regelmäßig und immer wieder sehr gerne. Beide Paletten sind sehr schön und kann ich gerne weiterempfehlen.

Wenn jemand ein kleineres Budget zur Verfügung hat und keine 50,- Euro oder mehr für eine tolle nude Palette ausgeben möchte, bekommt man mit der IT Palette auf jeden Fall viele schöne Farben zu einem guten Preis.

Ich hoffe meine kleine Review hat euch heute gefallen und ich wünsche euch allen noch einen tollen restlichen Tag!

Bis zum nächsten Mal!
Viele liebe Grüße
