Today I’ve got the Silk Naturals vs. Urban Decay Naked 3 Dupes to show you. Silk Naturals has cloned the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and I was asked to give you a side by side comparison between the two. As you know, I LOVE Urban Decay. I really really love Urban Decay. However, some people can’t wear UD because of the talc or bismuth, while others can’t wear UD because they need a vegan option. Enter Silk Naturals. I love their products, which are vegan and gluten free.

Both are cruelty free. For more information on my definition of what brands are cruelty free, see my Cruelty Free Brand List. I believe brands are cruelty free even if their parent company is not cruelty free.
Now, I think the Silk Naturals appears more pigmented because they’re a loose product so it’s easier to pick up more at one time. Please believe me when I say that Urban Decay’s products are very pigmented and smooth. All swatches are on Coastal Scents Shadow Worx primer.
a very very light, almost white pink with a nearly matte satiny finish.
Cache is slightly lighter, more matte, more pigmented than Strange. They’re both very easy to work with base shades.
a light, slightly warm shimmery metallic pink.
Status does not have fallout the way Dust does. Otherwise they look nearly identical to me. Status might be a touch pinker. They’re both gorgeous. I love the finish.
a light satiny rose with just a little bit of peach. It’s a lovely one-color wash, great on the lid, and it just makes you look perky and alive.
Tweak is more peach toned than Burnout. Both have beautiful pigmentation.
a silky smooth dusty rose matte.
Analog appears more pigmented than Limit, and it’s a touch pinker.
a warm rose metallic tone with a silky satin finish.
Buzz and Impact look identical to me. The way the light caught in the swatch pics because my hand is a slightly curved surface made Impact look slightly deeper.
a medium-deep pinky brown matte.
Parallel looks like it’s slightly pinker than Nooner.
a pinkish golden copper with a satiny metallic finish.
Trick and Torrent look identical to me on the hand. The way the light caught in the swatch pics because my hand is a slightly curved surface made Trick look slightly deeper.
a deeper mauvish brown- meaning it’s brown with some plum undertones and a few pink highlights.
Virtual looks slightly more taupe/brown toned than Liar.
a toned down shimmery brown with rosy plum undertones, and a little bit of a golden copper highlight.
Drive has more red glimmers in it than Factory, but otherwise very similar.
a deep taupe Suede with just a hint of shimmer.
Darkside and Link are not similar to me. Link is a darker brown with rainbow borealis glimmers. Darkside is more like a deep brown taupe.
a shimmery (albeit toned down a little) metallic taupe with a little bit of a red undertone.
Mugshot and History look very similar. Mugshot might be a touch warmer.
Portal is a dark slightly brownish black with coppery red sparkle
Blackheart and Portal are virtually identical except Blackheart has more red glimmers.
Overall I think the 12 shades are very close. Only Dust from UD has the fallout issue. A few of the shades do differ. However, I think if you can’t wear UD eyeshadows because they make you itch or you need a vegan product, Silk Naturals Naked 3 clone is a great
What do you think of the side by side comparison? Which shades are your favorites?
