Silk Naturals Bare Necessities Smoky Set vs. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette

Silk Naturals Bare Necessities Smoky Set vs. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette

Today I’ve got my Silk Naturals Bare Necessities Smoky Set vs. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette swatches and comparison to share with you. I did swatch these on primer, on my arm. The Silk Naturals set is gluten free, talc free, bismuth oxychloride free and vegan. So if you love UD’s Smoky palette but need a vegan version, this is it! You can buy each Silk Naturals shade individually or as a set.

Press samples.

Price
$54 Urban Decay Naked Smoky
$39.99 Silk Naturals Set
$4.50 Silk Naturals individual colors

I want to get lip swatches done but since I haven’t had time to do that, I wanted to at lease give you arm swatches.

Overall, I think Silk Naturals Bare Necessities Smoky is a very close dupe for the Naked Smoky Palette. I feel like the Silk Naturals colors are more pigmented and easier to work with, provided you’re comfortable with loose eyeshadows. I also think that if there were only one or two colors you wanted from the palette, this is a great way to get them.
