REVIEW: Urban Decay NAKED VS NYX nude on nude

Holla.
how are you guys doing? hope you guys having a great one, cause mine is bad. :(

now now, forget about the bad day. maybe if you have read my previous post, i've already told you guys that i'll make a review of my newest palette, NAKED palette by Urban Decay.

Then think again, instead of only reviewing only this one, why don't I compare it with my first palette ever, NYX nude on nude. it will be more interesting to have these two in a war. LOL



Truthfully, NYX nude on nude is my favorite palette ever before i bought NAKED and i used it million times. it travels a lot with me and being abused by me like zillion times. :D

At first, i bought NYX nude on nude because I want to have NAKED but at that time it's really impossible for me to buy NAKED and i found NYX nude on nude and i think it's quite similar with NAKED.

now, i really want to compare both. As for NAKED, i already tried it this morning before i'm going to office and i think wearing it once is enough to make a review because i've been through hell today and the shadows went to hell along with me. after being in hell, the shadows is eligible enough to be review, right? LOL

Enough with blabbering, here is the swatches between these two and comparisons about them.
swatches fr left-right: virgin-sin-naked-sidecar-buck-half baked-smog-darkhorse-toasted-hustle-creep-gunmetal
swatches are respectively from left to right,  from first row to second row


Size:
NAKED has a bigger size than NYX, but NYX has two stories (the below one is for lip colors)

Colors:
NAKED has 12 shades and NYX has 20 shades. however, the size for each shade in NAKED is bigger.

Packaging:
NAKED's packaging made from velvet and really light. it has a small mirror in it.
NYX nude on nude packaging made from plastic and quite heavy. it has a wide mirror in it.

Price:
NAKED palette costs me around $70, and NYX nude on nude around $30
Do the math, NYX nude on nude x 2 = NAKED. AMAZING!

Other things included:
NAKED gives small size of UD primer potion
NYX nude on nude gives 10 colors of lip balm

Now, here are what i like and don't like about each product:

Pros:
-both are really pigmented. like super pigmented. i don't even need to use primer and yet the colors still pop out.
-really love the shades. there is no single shade that i don't like from both of them.
-as for NAKED, i really love the packaging. light and classy.
-as for NYX, i love that i got so many choices of lip balms, so i can bring this palette anywhere and make couple looks without bringing any lip colors.
-as for NAKED, i really like the eyeshadow brush that i get. it has a good quality.

Cons:
-both are PRICEY. i abused my bank account a lot since i'm hooked into make up. sigh
-as for NYX, the colors are quite chalky. but not as chalky as ELF.
-i don't like the packaging of NYX. it's quite heavy.


that's all about the review of NAKED VS NYX nude on nude. which one i like better? let's see...screw that. i love both of them. tokens of my heart. love you guys. *smooch

so how about you? which one do prefer? or what is your favorite palette? let me now below and i'll talk to you guys late. teehee.
