Urban Decay Loaded vs. NARS Rajasthan ~ Swatches & Comparison

(pics are clickable)

Back when I swatched the UD BOS III I thought that the color Loaded really reminded me of NARS Rajasthan Duo(the forest green/teal side).

Comparison swatches:


top NARS Rajasthan
bottom UD Loaded


As you can see, Rajasthan is much more taupe based than Loaded. IMO Loaded is the prettier of the two, and technically cheaper. Loaded is NOT a permanent shade for Urban Decay, so you would have to buy BOS III to obtain it, which would run you $54 plus tax. However, Rajasthan is $32 for 2 colors. You get more of the particular shadow with NARS but if you picked up the UD you'd get 16 colors.

They are different enough to own both, but if I HAD to pick just one I'd go for Loaded.

Oooh, beautiful! I think I prefer Loaded too, and plus, my experienc with Nars shadows has been more troublesome than UD. I think that's why I don't gravitate towards them as much! They can be pretty though...I'd be much more inclined to get the BOS III haha! And OT but I want to send you a hug, you always leave me the sweetest comments.

UD is MUCH easier to work with. Much smoother and has better pigment.
Some NARS duos are easier than others. (love Habanera, Kalahari...) Natalie up there loves Bellissima but I had such problems with it. I would rather use it for hockey practice than wear it haha

you're welcome girl ;) <3 ya!
