Many beauties even call Heaven and Earth Palette to be the Dupe of UD Naked Original palette.

In Detail MUA Heaven and Earth Palette Review, Swatches and My Experience
So as I mentioned before, I enjoy using MUA. The brand comes up with decent makeup quality and has a variety of products. Heaven and Earth palette is a 12 shade palette. Comes in a pretty basic eye shadow case. A transparent lid with inscriptions on the anterior side.
Its probably one of the best neutral eye shadow palettes, you can achieve a variety of natural looks with the help of this palette. It basically has 12 shades which belong to the families of bronze, gold, taupes, browns, burgundy and creams. I adore how all these shades compliment each other. All the shades are uber pigmented, well some more than the other. The shimmery shades have really finely milled shimmer. This makes the texture of the pigments very satiny smooth. They of course are not as insanely pigmented as the UD ones, but I’d say pretty close and a definite competition to some other high end brands. Coming to the details about the pigments. These shade have no fall outs at all. I wore them for approximately 6-7 hours without any creasing of fading (with a primer).
If you want to go for a neutral smokey eye look, pick this palette without thinking much. Its perfect for everyday use as well. Because its got really pigmented shades with a variety of hues, no wonder its loved by beauties of all skin tones. It has just the right combination of all the shades that you’d need. I guess its called Heaven and Earth because its got some really light shimmery shades (heaven) and some bronze-gold ones (earth).

Shade comparison of Urban Decay Naked Palette and MUA Heaven and Earth Palette
Because the Heaven and Earth Palette does not have shade names and numbers, we will follow this arbitrary numbering as in the picture below.
UD Naked 1 shade Virgin = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 4 and 9 (4>9)
UD Naked 1 shade Sin = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 10
UD Naked 1 shade Naked = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 8 (Naked is matte but Shade 8 is shimmery)
UD Naked 1 shade Sidecar = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 7 ( Sidecar is more bronzy)
UD Naked 1 shade Buck = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 11 (Buck is matte, shade 11 is shimmery)
UD Naked 1 shade Half Baked = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 6 are close but not exact (Half Baked is rich golden unlike shade 6)
UD Naked 1 shade Smog = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 3 (Smog is deeper)
UD Naked 1 shade Dark Horse = MUA Heaven and Earth has no close dupe.
UD Naked 1 shade Toasted = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 2 (pretty much same)
UD Naked 1 shade Hustle = MUA Heaven and Earth shade 5 (extremely similar)
UD Naked 1 shade Creep = MUA Heaven and Earth has no similar shade
UD Naked 1 shade Gunmetal = MUA Heaven and Earth shade has no similar shade.
So most of the shades are very similar to Urban Decay Naked palette. Now speaking of budget, UD Naked costs approximately £35.00 (even more in India). MUA palette is £4.00. Girls we are talking of £31.00 difference which is quite a lot. I mean if you are on a budget/do not want to spend a havoc/looking for a basic neutral eye shadow palette, definitely go for the MUA palette because according to me you will be loosing out on only 3 shades from the Urban Decay Palette. Dark Horse, Creep and Gunmetal have no dupes in the Heavens and Earth palette. I will try to get more dupes for you guys and review them.
In all I have to say, I am loving this palette. Its perfect for minimal glowy everyday eye makeup or bold smokey eyes. In fact you know what, you can do so much with this palatte. Some of the shades are so similar to UD palette that no one can differentiate if you are wearing UD or MUA.
