Urban Decay | Naked 3 Pallete | Real or Fake?

There are so many sellers these days selling fake products, and recently i was in the middle of it all. I received the Naked 3 Palette as a gift and opened the package to realise that it was a fake. I contacted Amazon straight away, and the company who sold the palette ( i wont mention the seller as they have now removed the naked 3 pallete) and luckily i got a great response, got a full refund and an apology. I was one of the lucky ones that actually got good treatment from the seller, most people don't.

So, I've decided to do a blog post on this. How to tell if it's fake and for you to check that your naked 3 palette is not a fake (here's hoping, not!).

At first, you can see straight away that the boxes are a different size. You always get a free gift with Urban Decay, Naked Palettes, and with my fake one i never, that is why it's noticeably skinnier (top box) and the bottom one is slightly larger. The free product with the 3rd palette was, 4 different samples of eyeshadow primer potions. (sorry about my lighting in the photos, the sun kept going away).

The back of the packaging is noticeably different as well. The real box has the samples of the free product on the back and the fake one doesn't (top box). Also the purple rose design on the inside is more like purple blobs in the fake one to. It is a very good fake though, the exact same text on the back and the fake one even has a serial number, so be aware, they can look real when in fact they aren't!

Thirdly, The inside of the palette is the biggest give away that it's a fake. The fake is a lot more pinkier than the real palette, the writing in the fake is bolder and a different font. Also, even though the eyeshadows look the same, they aren't! The fake eyeshadow actually made my eyes very sore, and itchy. So straight after this post i am dumping it! 

Last but not least, i thought i'd share 3 more images just to show you examples of how different they look when they are shown together! I really hope you aren't caught out by fake sellers! If you have noticed by reading this post that yours is fake, let the seller know and ask for a full refund. I would hate to see someone take money of you for something which isn't legit!
