For My Fellow Bare Escentuals Lovers- Comparisons for Urban Decay Naked Palette VS BE shadows

I know many people like me, who own 100's of eye shadows, but still are on the quest for MORE!  I own tons of Bare Escentuals eye shadows, but I was still fascinated by the Urban Decay Naked Palette (see previous posts).  Here are my closest comparison swatches of BE vs UD....keep in mind, there may be even better BE dupes out there, but these are what I had in my arsenal.  The one color I had the most trouble matching up was "Naked"....I don't seem to own anything like that....then again, not many of my BE shadows are matte (like Naked) so that was most of the problem.  While picking my comps, I tried to stay in the same vein of how the shadows behave once applied....were they gleamy? shimmery?  dull? more difficult to blend?  You get the idea =)
Check them out!

Here is the second half of the palette....unfortunately, I only got natural lighting and not one w/flash also (sorry!)

Hopefully if you don't already own the Naked palette, but do have some BE, this will help you decide if it's necessary.  In my opinion, I would buy it again in a second.  I love BE, but nothing beats being able to take all your shadows with you in one sleek case.  I know when I travel back East in the summer, this is the only eye makeup I need to bring- No messing around! 

Let me know what you think!
