Icon by Absolute New York "Exposed" Palette Swatches and Review

I'm trying to stay calm but I think I've just discovered the closest dupe I've ever seen of the Naked Palette for only a fraction of the price. This palette Icon by Absolute New York "Exposed" retails for only MYR 49.90 in Watsons. That's 1/4 of the price of the Naked Palette.

The box and the packaging has the look and feel of the Naked 3 palette but like the Naked Smokey palette it can actually open all the way and it's got a full sized mirror. It also comes with a double ended applicator.
Out of the 12 shades I find that 9 are very close dupes to the Naked palette. 

Ballet (soft pale pink satin, a close dupe of "sin"), muted (iridescent mauve beige satin), Canvas (light nude matte), Toast (fawn brown shimmer, comparable to "sidecar"), Nude (cool nude matte, similar to "naked"), Nectar (peach nude matte), Gilded (golden brown metallic, very close in shade with "smog"), Cedar (golden bronze mettalic, reminds me of "darkhorse"), Flirt (muted rose metallic, similar to "toasted"), Java (mocha brown metallic, very very similar to "hustle"), Slate (charcoal metallic, a close colour to "creep") and last but not least Gunmetal (alloy grey metallic, not only similar in name but I can't see any difference in the colour as well). 

The colours in this palette are very highly pigmented and they are easy to apply on. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the Naked palette (the first one), this would be a good option.
