My sister received a fake naked 2 palette from her friend (YES! they both know that it is fake). I decided to do a blog post about it and asked my sister if I can borrow it. She said yes and told me that I can keep it since she won't be using it at all. So here goes the Real Naked 2 VS. the Fake Naked 2!
-FAKE: Comes with a cardboard packaging.
2. -REAL: Comes with a lipgloss in Naked and a double-ended brush.
-FAKE: Comes with only a double-ended brush and no lipgloss.
3. The fake palette font is darker than the real one.
4. -REAL: Has the code (A047) printed on the box and a sticker on the palette
-FAKE: Doesn't have code or sticker on the palette.
(Also take a look at the "Lip Junkie Lip Gloss" on the top picture of the real palette.. the fake one doesn't have that included!! The lip gloss is mentioned on #2)
5. -REAL: Clean, nice, and nothing is damaged
-FAKE: Has a lot of imperfections (Look at the 3 pictures above)
6. -Look at the real A and the fake A.. it is different because of the font.
7. -REAL: Letters are all centered
-FAKE: The fonts are leaning more towards the right, it is more obvious with Half Baked.
8. -REAL: Heavier
-FAKE: Way lighter
(Dusty machine, whoops!) haha
9. -REAL: Has 2 holes, ONLY. (check the white box in pic)
-FAKE: This has 3 holes. (check the white box in pic)
10. -REAL: Crease brush left, Shadow right; Color: Light Reddish Brown (Longer)
-FAKE: Shadow left, Crease brush right; Color: Dark Brown (Shorter)
11. -REAL: The brush color is more nice and is more sturdier.
-FAKE: The brush color looks cheap and isn't sturdy.
FOXY: -Real: Light creamy yellow with a matte finish
-Fake: Too much of a white based (not enough yellow) but still with a matte finish.
HALF BAKED: -Real: Golden copper with sheen
-Fake: Not pigmented at all! It barely even shows up.
BOOTY CALL: -Real: White with a slight tint of pink; Frosty
-Fake: Doesn't have the slight tint of pink; The frosty finish is kinda not there
CHOPPER: -Real: Orange-toned copper with flecks of shimmer
-Fake: Not as pigmented.
TEASE: -Real: Light Taupe Grayish-Brown
-Fake: A tad bit lighter and more on the gray side.
SNAKEBITE: -Real: Dark bronze with golden shimmer sheen
-Fake: Not dark and pigmented but still has the shimmer sheen
SUSPECT: -Real: Soft champagne-bronze metallic color with a frosted sheen
-Fake: Not as pigmented and doesn't have that touch of bronze
PISTOL: -Real: A gray-brown color with a frosted finish
-Fake: A tad bit light on gray and is leaning towards more brown
VERVE: -Real: Pale beige gray with a hint of pink
-Fake: The finish is off, needs to be more pigmented, and no hint of pink
YDK: -Real: Warm medium copper
-Fake: Very light and not pigmented. Not even close to the real YDK. Plus there is glitter on this one and it goes everywhere!
BUSTED: -Real: Warm deep brown
-Fake: Leaning towards the grey and purple side.
BLACKOUT: -Real: Deep dark black with a matte finish
-Fake: Not as pigmented; leaning towards the grey-blue side.
OVERALL: Some of the colors does look the same as the real one. But the texture and pigmentation doesn't match up. Some of the colors are also way off like (Half baked, YDK, Blackout, etc). I personally wouldn't buy this myself because I like buying the real deal. But, to be honest. The fake palette eye shadows weren't so bad. There was a minimum of fall out and you can totally work with the colors so they can show up better. My sister's friend bought (2 fake) Naked 2 palettes for $85. At first, she didn't know that it was fake when she was ordering it. But, when she got it she knew that it was fake right off the bat.
Real Naked 2 Palette: $50
Fake Naked 2 Palette: $42.50
Go get the real deal instead. It is just a couple of more dollars. Don't be fooled by these sellers. If you bought a fake one through ebay, you are COVERED. You are also covered if you use paypal. Please file a claim and get your money back so you can get a legit product. (You don't have to if you don't want to). I just don't want people wasting their money buying a FAKE item that almost cost as much as the real one.
Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!
(My boyfriend bought me the real naked 2 and my sister's friend bought the fake naked 2.)
