Real Naked 2 VS. Fake Naked 2

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!





1. -REAL: Comes with a clear packing.
    -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.


-The real palette is on the top and the fake palette is on the bottom. Right off the bat, you can already see some of the differences in each shadows. But I took swatches on each color on each palette (real is on the left and fake is on the right). Now, let's take a look at each individual eye shadow. Remember, the real one is on the left and the fake one is on the right. (Same swipes on each color side by side)




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.)

  3. Fakes are so scary! No idea what ingredients went into them or where they were produced. Best to just save up and make sure you're getting the real deal.

    1. where'd you get it from? maybe you can get a refund.. the only downside are the ingredients.. you never know how dangerous/unsanitary it can be! :(

    2. I would NOT use it. I've read many articles about how counterfeit makeup have arsenic and mercury in them. Also - they fund terrorism and drug trafficking.

  8. Hey! I got a fake naked 2 palette recently (unknowingly) and after filing a claim to paypal, I got my refund back. I got to keep the palette as well, which i think caused more problems for me because now I can't decide if I should get the real one and have 2 of the "same" palettes or just stick with the fake one :/ What would you do?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if you really want the REAL naked 2, then please go get it! :) you can usually find them with $10 off or something making it only $40.. the only problem with the fake one is not knowing what ingredients are used.. it could be dangerous and quite disgusting!

      Delete
    2. I would still get the real one. As I commented above - I was alarmed to learn (while researching about my fake one) how counterfeit makeup has traces of arsenic and mercury in them. Gross! :(

  13. I got the fake one and cost me 11 dolars. I think it worth it... naked 2 is full of light shades and they look quite pigmented in the fake one.

    1. However, you have no idea what ingredients you're putting in your bloodstream. I just read this article and am NOT ever using my fake one, again.

  15. I just received a FAKE one last Sat. I ordered it from Giosis (previously known as gmarket). The packaging itself came exactly from your pics, without the lipgloss etc.
    Ive just filed a report from Paypal, hope they can do something to refund as im not sure if they will be able to do a refund, as i ordered the item from gmarket and not from ebay???
    Thanks for your post on this REAL vs FAKE UD NAKED 2 PALETTE.

    1. hi there, i know who you are referring to but pls do not buy from her. it's fake and she admitted that to me when i asked her privately. if the price is too good to be true, then it most probably is.

  21. Thank you so much for this in-depth blog. I bought a Naked 2 palette 2 weeks ago from ebay and today I got a funny feeling about it so decided to google how to spot a fake one. I found this blog and realised my palette is a fake. I've opened a dispute with ebay and paypal. I was going to just keep it and not bother with a refund but after reading the comments about what could be in these eyeshadows I do not want it near me so I've asked for a full refund and will quite happily bin it if the seller does not want it back. I am going to save up and buy from the urban decay website instead.

  22. HI, thank you for ur blog!
    but sadly I found this out after i purchased it from ebay...
    the fake product is on it's way to my house..I dont need to wait till the product to arrive cuz i already know it's fake..
    I need your help to teach me how to refund this item.. the buyer states that he doesnot accept refund..
    but I would not want this FAKE stuff.. I would rather pay more to get the real one..

  23. the fake one was so expensive. i got one at $10, it's exactly the same as what u got for $42.50. with the price difference from the real one, i think it's okay.

    ReplyDelete
  24. the one i unfortunately bought matched most of your fake pics except that mine had only two holes in the lid like the correct one.

    another thing i noticed is the difference in the tab that hooks into bottom piece (see the top of picture 3 of item #5). the fakes have 3 parallel protruding lines while the real was smooth when i compared it at sephora! could you show that view as well?

  25. Just wanted to say thank you so much for posting this! Helped me to confirm mine is fake (I bought it through eBay) and have filed a complaint so will return and just pay a few quid more. Knew it was fake straight away, opened it up and the mirror fell off, not very Urban Decay! Thanks a lot xx

  26. Watch out for FAKE Urban Decay Naked, Naked 2, Naked Basics as well as the Balm Nude'tude on www.Tophatter.com! Lots of other designer cosmetics there are real and great prices!

  27. $42.50??!! You can buy it at Aliexpress for $7~$8 and it's the same quality as the fake one...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I know I am late, however, not all Naked2 palettes come with lip gloss which was your first authenticity differential. May want to point that out. I filed a claim about a fake one on Ebay (only $8) and then bought the real one. Otherwise your analysis rocked!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This has been sooooooo helpful. I found one online for £13 which was listed as "12-Color Make-up Eye Shadow Palette" so I was already a bit weary. I found this post by chance when looking for pictures of the real one to compare and after looking at the this post and at the pictures of the palette I was looking at, I know it's definitely fake. Won't be buying that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I bought the naked 2 palette for $12 beat purchase ever. Same quality as the real naked 3 I bought do not believe the people on here don't let them discourage you from saving $40

    ReplyDelete
  31. The real palette's are now $52.00 USD. But yes if you want the real thing, go buy it from Sephora or Ulta or Urban Decay's website. The Naked 2 if you buy it from the stores should be with the lip gloss. Or at least the newer ones should be. Thanks, this should help clear up any misconceptions!

  32. Hi! I know this blog was from a while ago, but I'm having trouble figuring out if the palette I got as a Christmas gift is real or fake.

    Things that make me think it's real:

    1: I only have 2 circle indentations, not the 3 that is supposed to be in the fake one.
    2. When reading the text on the brush from left to right, the small end of my brush is on the right.
    3. My packaging doesn't look shoddy and glued together.

    Things that make me think it's fake:

    1. There is no batch number on the back.
    2. The names of the colors underneath are off center to the right.

    What do you think? I don't really want to ask my sister if she bought this on eBay or somewhere else because I don't want her to feel bad if it's not real :-P

  33. Hi,
    I bought Naked 2 from Beauty Bay (in April 2014) and was puzzled if I received authentic one, because it came with 4 primer potions and not lip gloss. I sent email to the customer service of Urban Decay and they approved it I received authentic palette! Hope this is helpful info.
