Product Battles: Physicians Formula Nude vs. Naked Palette!

Recently, Physicians Formula came out with 2 new palettes named Shimmer Strips. One is Classic Nude and the other is Smokey Nude. They both correspond near perfectly with the Naked palettes. Thus, concluding that a product battle is a must between the Naked palette and the Classic Nude palette. Let’s begin!

First off is the Classic Nude palette from Physicians Formula. All of the colors are shimmery, hence the name Shimmer Strips, but they aren’t glittery. It comes in this adorable little casing and has a magnetic flip that keeps everything closed. Inside it comes with a sponge-like brush which can’t really be used much. The colors are small strips of 9. On the back of the packaging it has tips to enhance your smokey eye and how to use the sponge applicator. This product runs for about $10.99 at most drug stores. The main problem I had with this product is that without primer all of  the colors have the same shimmery pigmentation. The picture of the swatches I did are all with primer and a lot of product. The fall-out is minimal.

In comparison is the original Naked palette. With its 12 pigmented shades, this bad boy runs for about $52.00. Most of colors are shimmery, but there are a few matte colors in this palette. It comes with eye primer and other than the cost I really love this palette. I think it’s universal and can be worn daily. The price is a banger, though. To spend $52.00 on some eye shadows! This palette looks fine without primer and amazing with primer. The fall-out is minimal.

And the winner is….. The Naked palette! I chose this palette because I felt like it was worth the money. Typically, I weigh cost more than anything in these battles because I love my under $15 makeup, but the rewards outweighed the cost. Naked offers matte and shimmer and the products that come with it have the ability to be used for more things. Everyone needs a little luxury makeup, and this product battle luxury wins over cheap.
