As I strolled through Mecca Cosmetica I spotted this...

NARS, I love you, but you make me feel like I'm looking at Urban Decay's Naked Palette.

Working clockwise from the upper left corner, let's breakdown the striking resemblance:

Belissma = Virgin (shade #1)

Alhambra = Half Baked (shade #6)

Silk Road = Sin (shade #2)

Galapagos = Smog (shade #7)

Bali = Dark Horse (shade #8)

Tzarine = Gunmetal (shade #12)

Please feel free to draw your own conclusions.  I didn't buy American Dream, because I couldn't rationalise shelling out $85.00 AUS for something which closely resembles to what I already own.

So, what do you think?  Coincidence, inspiration or a carbon copy?
