Hola Beautiful IMBBians!
Whenever I visit Sephora or Ulta, I lustfully eye Urban Decay Naked Palettes but my current pay check does not allow me to buy them but rather just indulge in window shopping. However, for one-seventh of the price I have found a perfect dupe for naked eye palettes.
W7 cosmetic brand is an UK brand and it makes these amazing replicas of naked eye palettes. So far, I have found dupes for all the 3 generations of Urban Decay Palettes. The product in this post is the dupe of Naked 2 palette.
W7 In The Buff Natural Nude Eye Color Palette contains 12 eye shadows: Buff, Camel, Sand, Dust, Chocolate, Topaz, Earth, Storm, Silk, Wave, Thunder and Onyx. It comes complete with double ended brush.
£ 9.99(Amazon sells it for nearly $7)
It has metal packaging just like Urban Decay Palettes but not as sturdy. Nevertheless, I still like the metal case. This metal case holds a black plastic case which holds the eye shadow in their designated slots. It would have been better, if there was an in-built mirror but alas! no such luck. It also comes with a brush that has bristles on one end and sponge on another.
It stays 8 to 10 hours and more if used with a primer.
My Take On W7 In The Buff Natural Nude Eye Color Palette:
In my previous posts, I have mentioned that I am not a big fan of mono eye shadows because they are too much of a fuss and occupy a lot of space. So, I either depot them or just buy a palette of the same amount. When I saw W7 In The Buff Natural Nude Eye Color Palette, I bought it because of the pretty nude shades and also because all the bloggers rave about it as to how it is a dupe of Naked 2 Palette.
Shades in the palette:
It is yellow-toned, matte highlighter. It does not show up at all because it is not pigmented enough and is a little chalky. I did not like it much since it hardly shows up on my skin.
It is a shimmery golden shade. This one looks a lot like ‘Half Baked’ from the Naked Palette, although the pigmentation is not as great.
It is just like the first shade except, it is pink-toned instead of yellow. I do not like this type of colour, but some others might.
It is a shimmery copper shade and the kind, I love the most.
It is a matte taupe, somewhere in between brown and purple. I apply it in my crease to add depth.
It is dark brown with less shimmers than Camel and Dust, but more shimmery than Sand.
It is a medium brown eye shadow with a satin finish. It looks a bit like the grown-up version of Camel.
It is a Khaki green color which looks very flattering on my skin tone.
It is a metallic pearly shade, just like the third shade but with golden shimmer. I only use these kinds of eye shadows to highlight my inner eye corners.
It is a shimmery brown/pink shade. It looks a bit like Dust, but it has more of a pink/purple undertone which makes it less warm.
It is dark brown with satin finish and has a strong purple undertone. It can be used for brown smokey eyes.
It is a matte black shade.

Would I Repurchase W7 In The Buff Natural Nude Eye Color Palette?
Yes. They have four other such palettes that I would add to my kitty soon. All those who want to diversify or just do not want to spend money on naked palettes should try to get hold of these beauties.
