Is Wet N' Wild Vanity a Cheap Version of Urban Decay Naked ?

I will be shortly reviewing and swatching the full Urban Decay Naked Palette, but when i first got it, i thought it looked a little similar to something i previously own and lovee - the wet n' wild palette in Vanity! which i have to say, is my all time favorite drugstore palette :) 

anyways, i just had to compare and see for myself :) read on to see if its actually similar or not!

see... it looks a little similar doesnt it?

wnw palette in vanity ♥

however, when swatched... they dont look so similar no more :(

trying to match up colors
urban decay on left side, wnw on right

urban decay on top - virgin, sin, buck, half baked, hustle
wnw on bottom

urban decay on top - virgin, sin, buck, half baked, hustle, smog
wnw on bottom

some closer up pictures
urban decay on left, wnw on right
bottom to top - virgin, sin, buck

as you can see, virgin has more of a slight shimmer to it, whereas wnw's shade is completely flat out matte. as a result, these two vary slightly in texture and shade.. going up one shade, you can also see that sin has much more pink undertones whereas the wnw's shade is a white gold. now at first, you might find that virgin's more similar to wnw's white gold... however, take another look at the above pictures with flash, not so close anymore right? :(

verdict so far: not even close to being a dupe hahaha.

bottom to top - buck, half baked

buck was the shade that i swear wnw had a dupe for, but unfortunately.. when swatched, buck has a slight darker and almost greener undertone. (look at above pictures to see a real big diff) half baked is also nowhere near being duped as it is more of a gorgeous brown gold whereas wnw's shade is straight up gold.

verdict so far: nope, not close as al!!

bottom to top - hustle, smog

the darkest matte shade in the naked palette was buck, so i tried the next closest shimmery shade, hustle. and you can obviously tell that its not even close to the darkness of wnw's shade, let alone the fact thats its not matte!! smog is probably the shade that looks somewhat similar.. yet with flash, these shades have slightly different undertones. so once again, it fails to be a dupe

overall verdict: wnw's vanity is definitely not a dupe for urban decay's naked palette, nor can it be considered similar in shades!!

lesson learned? i fail at making dupe assumptions

however.... if you really cant shell out the big bucks for urban decay's palette, but am still looking for a neutral palette that could provide you with neutral looks, glamours golds and smokey browns.. then i highly recommend you consider wet n' wild's vanity! it really is amazing!

the shadows are buttery soft and very very well pigmented! definitely up to par with urban decays on that bit if i must say so myself! Now of course, the biggest difference between the two, is that if you're looking for more unique shades that you really cant describe with one word, go with urban decay. if you're looking for basic shades that can still provide you with similar looks, go with wnw.

overall, im glad i have and own both :) i love them both and will use them equally as much! here are the swatches for wnw's vanity :) i also have wnw's palettes in Pride and Lust and am desperately searching for their holiday collections (which i cant find in canada!) i'll swatch those shortly so you can see how amazing they are!

anyways, i hope the swatches helped. kind of embarassing how i thought these two could ever be even close in shades... but oh well, mistakes are there to be made! how would i have known there was such a big difference if i didnt try it for myself! :D i'll be posting the full swatches for the urban decay naked palette shortly.. but for now, got another date with my clarisonic! i am really loving this thing! (and yup, working on the review for that too!)

I usually do not create many comments, but after browsing through a few of the responses on this page "Is Wet N' Wild Vanity a Cheap Version of Urban Decay Naked ?".
I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it appear like some of the comments appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
