Coastal Scents Revealed Palette - Naked Dupes

Hey everyone!
Ever since showing the Coastal Scents Revealed palette in my recent haul video, I've heard from a lot of people who want to see some comparisons to the Urban Decay Naked 1 & 2 palettes! So that's what this blog post is all about :) FYI- the Revealed Palette is $19.95 at the Coastal Scents website... although at the time I'm writing this post- the palette is out of stock-- however you can sign up to receive an email to notify you when it's back! 
Top to bottom: Naked 1 Palette, Naked 2 Palette, Revealed Palette

 I had a hunch that there were many Naked dupes in the Revealed palette, and after a whole lot of swatching this afternoon, I was able to come to a few conclusions...
  • 17 of the 20 shadows in the Revealed Palette are dupes for shadows in the Naked 1 & 2 palettes
  • 2 shades in the Naked 1 palette are very similar to 2 shades in Naked 2, and Half Baked is in both Naked palettes. Those shades have the same dupes in the Revealed palette. 
  • I wasn't able to find dupes for 3 Naked shadows
  • 3 Revealed shadows don't seem to be dupes of the Naked shadows
  • While you will notice that many of the Revealed shades are color matches, none of them contain glitter, and a few of the Urban Decay shadows do. So certain "dupes" will still have that difference.
(Click to enlarge any of these photos)
I've numbered each shade in the Revealed palette to give them an "identity". From what I can tell, shades 6, 11, and 16 aren't dupes for any of the Naked shadows. 6 and 11 were close to certain shades, but not quite close enough. In the pictures below, the top row of shadows are Urban Decay Naked shadows, and the bottom row are Revealed Palette shadows. If you notice some gaps under certain Urban Decay shadows-- those are the shades that I wasn't able to find a dupe for. The first shades on the far left are very light (just don't want you to skip them as you look across).

Left to right:
-Virgin: 2*
-Sin: 3
-Naked: 4
-Sidecar: 9
-Buck: 7
-Smog (no dupe)
-Darkhorse: 14
-Toasted: 15
-Hustle: 18*
-Creep (no dupe)
-Gunmetal: 19

Left to right:
-Foxy: 1
-Half Baked: 8
-Bootycall: 2*
-Chopper (No dupe)
-Tease: 5
-Snakebite: 12
-Suspect: 9
-Pistol: 13
-Verve: 10
-YDK: 17
-Busted: 18*
-Blackout: 20

Shades marked with an asterisk* are dupes that were used more than once. I found the shades Virgin and Bootycall to be very similar, so their dupe was the same shade. Also, Hustle and Busted are very similar, so their dupe was the same shade. When you see these swatches move and catch the light, I feel like they are even more exact... the still picture only shows so much, but with so many different dupes to share, I thought a blog post would be easier than a video. 

I know many people already have the Naked palettes, but for those who don't and want to get similar looks- I think it's pretty remarkable that there are so many dupes in this affordable palette! I find the Coastal Scents shades (both mattes and shimmers) to be very pigmented- and I really don't mind that they don't contain glitter like some of the Naked shades. One downside to the Revealed palette is that it doesn't have a mirror... but beyond that, I really don't have any complaints. It's a great neutral collection of eyeshadows! 

Daily Nuggets...
  • I'm uploading a review on the new Cover Girl TruMagic products! It'll be on my main channel this evening. 
  • Did a lot of online Christmas shopping over the past couple of days!
  • I had an interesting dream before waking up-- I'm on a relay team (with a REALLY random assortment of people from my past), and we're running through an obstacle course that's set up in a big office building. It's like a giant adult track meet, and I had superhuman speed. Clearly a dream and not reality!!

  2. Wow! This is amazing, thanks for doing these swatches! I haven't purchased either of the Naked palettes because I could never decide between Naked and Naked 2, but didn't want to splurge on both. But looks like I can have the best of both now, for a much better price with the Revealed palette :-)

  6. Thank you for doing this. DO you plan to get the Naked 3?
    I saw some pictures and the colors look similar as Lorac unzipped. I wanted to buy the Lorac one but Naked 3 has more colors, What do you think?

    1. I think she owns a Naked 3 palette. She was wearing it in the DIY Drugstore Beauty Bundles video. I would also love a comparative review on the Lorac Unzipped and Naked 3. I don't know which one to get.

  12. WOW is what kept coming to mind while looking closely at those swatch photos. WOW!! some of those are pretty dead on. that's insanity!! i have both the naked 1 and 2 palettes but i honestly only use a few colors from either of them and i'm not a fan of the glitter (too much fallout no matter how i use them!) so i like that the CS palette does not have glitter. glad you have done this post - so many people have noted that the revealed palette is similar to the naked palettes but so far i haven't seen anyone do a great post with comparison swatches! thanks!! :) will definitely have to pick that up after the holidays!

    1. While that may be true, some people don't want to spend that much money on a single palette. This palette looks lovely in itself and the fact that it appears to be of good quality WITH dupes would make it a good alternative for those who don't want to spend $104 when they can spend $20 (or less during the Coastal Scents sales).

  20. Emily you're the best - Thank you so much for the 411 ;) I don't own any of the Naked palette but once this is available I plan on buying it xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have Naked 2 so I think this palette would give me too many duplicates. It's a nice alternative to spending $104 on both the Nakeds though.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agreed! I can't justify the purchase when I own the Naked and the Naked 2 palette! But it looks really nice!

  22. It looks really nice! The comparison was super helpful! I like how is has so many neutral shades in one palette.

  23. Great comparisons! I already own all of the Naked palettes, so I'd pass on this, but it is great if you don't own them and want the colors!

  24. yay! thank you for this comprehensive blog post. It has to be the best out there for the dupes in the Revealed palette. As usual I'm writing this down in my book of dupes (yes, I literally have one, full of pictures and information) lol.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Do you think the unzipped palette is similar to the naked 3 palette?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Check out MsLolaLynn on You Tube. She does a side by side comparison video of Unzipped vs. Naked 3 that is very similar to this blog post. It's a real eye opener because I was really thinking I was going to go with the Unzipped over N3 but it seems they are truly different pallets.

      Delete
  26. It looks great. Whenever I run out of Naked 1, I'll consider the Revealed Palette. This makes me wonder about CS's warm palette vs Revealed Palette & CS's warm palette vs Naked Palettes.

    Thanks for the post!

    1. Me, too! I almost bought the Revealed Palette, but the 88 Warm was on sale for $8 so I got that instead. I hope Miss Emily could do a comparison for us.

  27. I love coastal scents! They make the best dupes! I'm still trying to use up the first Naked Palette! I so wish I just bought the coastal scents one before I got the NAKED palette.

  35. Would you do a tutorial and review on this? Just so that we can see the texture and pigmentation when used on the eyes. Also, to see the difference in fall out and shimmer.

You put so much into your channels and blog and this post alone is a great example of that dedication. You've clearly found your calling! Thanks for doing what you do and sharing it with the rest of us. :-)

  42. Thank you for this post! I knew there were Naked and Naked 2 dupes the moment I saw this palette online. I purchased this when Coastal Scents was having 50% off the entire site. I bookmarked this for future reference whenever I use this palette.

  43. You certainly put a lot of time into this post and it shows. Thank-you doll!!! I was amazed to see just how many dupes there actually was! Although its a great deal for the Coastal Scents palette, I still would prefer to spend my money on the Naked Palettes just because I prefer the quality of shadow and love Urban Decay.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Can you please post either a video on your channel or a blog post about the newest Urban Decay Naked palette? I'd also love a tutorial since I just picked one up.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am so excited that there are so many dupes in this! I really want the Naked palette, but I just can't afford it. This may totally be the way to go! Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am so excited to see that there are so many dupes in the coastal scents palette. Much more affordable than the urban decay palettes and it seems like the quality is good too! I own 4 different coastal scents palettes and I am pleased with every single one of them so I cant wait to try this one. Thank you for the review.

  51. Thanks so much for doing this! I have been trying to decide if I want to get the CS Revealed palette. I never bought either the Naked 1 or 2. So it's great to see how many dupes of these shades are in the affordable CS Revealed palette.

    I signed up for an e-mail notification when it's back in stock.

    Again, thanks so much for doing this!

  52. I cannot get my hands on the Naked palettes but now I am glad about it. I am going to order this Coastal scents palette instead.
    Emily, I also noticed that you have talked about Holiday gift sets but not the Estee lauder holiday makeup set. I bought the "Estee Lauder Makeup Artist Professional color collection" recently and featured it on my my blog.
    It is available for 55$ on the purchase of an Estee Lauder perfume. I actually bought it in Seoul for the full price (I had to pay more than 100$)
    If you would like to see it, please check it out: http://shoppingescapades.com/estee-lauder-makeup-artist-professional-color-collection-holiday-2013-collection/

  60. I just ordered mine (paid $14.03 and that includes shipping) I am excited to have dupes for most of the Naked shadows. Then, as I've browsed a little I discovered that I have dupes for the three shadows that aren't duped by Revealed. AND they're Wet n' Wild. Even better. Smog and Chopper dupes are in the Comfort Zone 8-pan palette and Creep is in the Petal Pusher. Who knew?! Yep, today I'm a pretty happy lady.

  64. I already own all three Naked palettes but I ordered the revealed palette yesterday bc it was half off! I know a lot of people would say I don't need all three since a lot are dupes but I don't look at it that way bc I collect makeup so I don't have to justify it, haha. But I honk this palette seems like an awesome, more affordable alternative for those who don't have the means to get a Naked palette bc they are pricey compared to drugstore shadows but they are worth every penny to me! I'm excited to try this revealed palette! Especially for $10!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. its not only available but it's on sale at 10 dollars right now! :-)

  66. I LOVE my Urban Decay Naked palettes, they are my all time favorite brand. I ordered the Revealed palette b/c of the similarities and it was on sale for the weekend for $10! So I figured I will have them all. That is what happens when you love eye shadow and makeup! ♥♥ I also had to order some brushes from Coastal Scents, they have great single hot pots too! Excited to try some more stuff! :)

  67. Thank you! Just got this palette on sale today! Signed up and saved money with CS points for registering there. :)

  68. I just couldn't believe my luck when I went to see if this was in stock and it was for 1/2 price! Thanks so much for the swatches. I would love to see some looks done with this, or some on camera swatches if you wouldn't mind! I know it is extremely similar to the Naked palettes but sometimes it's nice to see how they perform on camera.

  71. Thanks for this nice dupe-blog. While researching on the net I found you were almost the only one mentioning the single shades in detail. I would still love to watch an additonal video though to see the shades in action.

    However, I never bought the Naked palettes since I didn't like the glitter and the lots of shimmery shades in them. I was always hooked to the color selection though.
    So for me the Revealed palette is a fantastic alternative - most of Naked 1 & 2, and no glitter! I too got it for half price, and it's pretty affordable even shipping to Europe. I'll be excited to try it out.

  72. When you did your Coastal Scents haul, I was very interested in the Revealed Palette and the Forever Blushes. I was 'window' shopping on the internet a week ago and lo and behold the Reveal Palette was back in stock and half off. I have always wanted the Naked 1 and 2 palettes but could not justify spending the money. The colors of the Revealed Palette are just as gorgeous as you said and to have them as dupe for naked 1 and 2 is great.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Thank you, Emily, for the perfect post. I did some Coastal Scents Christmas shopping online and almost bought this palette for myself, but then I saw that the 88 Warm Palette was only $8! I thought, "hmm... $8 for 88 shades or $20 for 20 shades?" Because of the bargain, I bought the 88 warm instead. Do you think I'd be able to find the Urban Decay Naked shades within the CS 88 Warm Palette?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Received my palette really quick thru the mail. Since the palette was 50% & shipping was about $6 so the whole thing was under the $17.00--much less than the palette at the regular price of $19.95.
