Get Nude for Less (wait, what?!)

The "nude" look is one I like to rock often...day, night, with my friends or all alone! However, sometimes it costs a lot of money to get that fabulously natural, truely nude look. I'm sure you have the same problem, am I right ladies?! You're on the right blog, though, because I have found some tempting options to get totes nude for way less cash.
I bet you all thought I had lost my fruit loops with that intro...it's called an attention-grabber. Bahaha, gotcha! I'm talking about a nude eye look. The Urban Decay "Naked" Palettes (1, 2, and the Basics) are so popular right now, but not all of us want to fork over almost $40 to get naked. So, I did a little investigating and found dupes for these instant cult classics in the makeup industry. Save your cash and still get as naked as the day y'all were born, ladies! Here are my Suburb Chic approved picks...

This Physicans Formula Bright Collection Quad in "Metallic Canyon" gives you the perfect nude 'tude without that hefty price tag. At only $6.75, you get four blendable nude eyeshadows and a sturdy package for long-lasting wear and tear. I love the size of this quad, as well.
$6.75, Available at all major superstores and drugstores.
These gorgeous Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Palettes come in three color combinations:Classic Nude, Warm Nude, and Neutral Nude. All are- obviously- nudes, so whatever your skin's undertones are, there is a version literally perfect for you.
$10.95, Available at all major superstores and drugstores.


This Sonia Kashuk Instructional Eye Palette in "Eye on Neutral" is all nude, all matte, all wonderful! The colors are all very wearable and long-lasting for half the price of Urban Decay's versions.
$19.99, Available at Target stores and Target.com online.
Ohh, and so excited for this baby that just premiered this month! It's the "Natural Shadow Palette" from NYX, and couldn't be any cuter of a package. I have seen swatches of the shadows, and they are gorgeous and pretty pigmented for the price point. Can't wait to buy this one (as I own all the above dupes already) to give it a go!
$7.00, Available at Ulta Stores, Ulta.com online, and NyxCosmetics.com online.
