Dupe or Dud: Urban Decay Naked 3 vs. Kardashian Beauty Gradient Eye Color Palette in Echo

In a recent review of the Kardashian Beauty Gradient Eye Color Palettes in Echo and Mirage, I compared Echo - a pink-toned shadow selection - to Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette. Here's a more in depth comparison of the two so you can see the extent to which the Kardshian Palette might satisfy your urge to splurge on Naked 3!

Despite looking overwhelmingly pink, lilac, and purple in the pan, Echo has a lot of the same cool pinks and taupes as Naked 3 when swatched. Seen side-by-side, there are some glaring differences with varying textures, and a broader span of light shades in the Naked 3. But my #1 complaint of Urban Decay's Palette was how similar some of the shades are. If you could trim it down and have one or two pink shades and one or two taupes, you could still create roughly the same number of looks with one as you could with the other. While there are some definite texture differences (Kardashian's lack the buttery smoothness Urban Decay is know for, yet they still have good pigmentation and apply well with minimal fallout), packaging differences, and an obviously smaller selection of shades to choose from, Echo is a great way to incorporate the pinks, taupes, and mauvey-taupes many loved from Urban Decay, but couldn't justify the $52 it takes to get them.

At $9.99, Kardashian Beauty's Gradient Eye Color Palette in Echo is by no means a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette. But if your aim is mainly to incorporate similar pinks and cool, mauvey taupes into your look, the Echo palette is a good way to do so on a budget.
