Firstly. Just want to say Hello! To the new subscribers that have come aboard since my influx of views after my being posted on the MUA fb page. Thanks for checking out my page and deciding to subscribe, I really appreciate it and I’m really pleased to have some more people to write too! (I’ll check out all of your pages once I get the opportunity!)
The reason I’m doing this post is because, when MUA Make Up Academy announced the ‘Undress Me Too’, I saw some people asking what the difference is between this new set, and the original ‘Undressed’. I just thought that some visual comparisons would help people see the differences, and help them either choose between which one they want to buy, or see why they could do with having both in their collections (I’m definitely an advocate of the second option, if possible you should get both!)
I’m just going to show you some swatches to begin with.

As you can see, there’s such a nice variety in the colours, the ‘Undressed’ palette has more warm toned neutrals, and the ‘Undress me too’ has cooler tones, but both have just the lovliest range of shades. And, side by side, the majority of the shades can be seen to be very different.
That said, there are still a few shades which do seem similar in some lights, and in the swatches I did there are a couple, so I’ve done some pictures of the ones that looked most similar, to me, and swatched them side by side so that you can see any differences between those particular ones in more detail. Obviously I’m not going to need to do that with all 12 shades from each palette, it’s pretty obvious that the majority are really different. If anyone has any other shades that they’d like to see swatched side by side then please do just let me know, I have no problem doing some more if I know which ones people want to see the differences in.

If you’re still wondering which one to get? Well that’s, obviously, down to personal preference – Personally, I think that if people can afford it, they should get both. With the huge range of shades and tones, between the two palettes, you’ll have such a wide range of neutrals; a few nice mattes and some lovely shimmers, colours to suit almost every occasion. And for £4 each, most people can afford them. I, for one, am so pleased to have both sets in my collection, I see them as two very complementary palettes, they sit beautifully alongside each other and I don’t see one as an alternative to another, I see them as different halves of a whole.
For those who’re lusting after the Naked palettes then these seem like a fantastic alternative – I’d be lieing if I said I wouldn’t like to try them, I’d love to see what the fuss is about and see what the quality really is like but do I feel like I’m missing out, by not having them? No, these palettes are flipping fantastic and MUA, as a brand, really do impress me time after time; I definitely have a huge amount of respect and loyalty towards them as a brand. If you want to try the undressed palettes then I’d really suggest doing it, and if you want to try MUA as a brand then why haven’t you already?!
