I've never been a huge fan of Urban Decay products though they generally have good reviews. I find Stila, Smashbox and Tarte worth the money though that obviously isn't an all inclusive list.

In terms of decent lower priced brands, Eyes, Lips, Face (available at Target) and Ulta's store brand are both good. I'm careful to read the labels on Ulta's store brand as some are made in China, but most are not. Though I'm guessing if she is pouting over this one it's less because of the colors and more because of the brand. I agree with the other posters who say let her buy it. If she doesn't have a job pay her a fair rate to do something around the house. Then she can decide if it is worth $50.

That's a lot of money for a teen to be spending on makeup, especially since it's highly likely that she's actually going to use all the shades in the pallet. I like the idea of making her earn the money so she can think about in real life how long you have to work to get the things you want rather than just running up a bunch of plastic and getting yourself deep into debt because your wants outweighed your assets.

I also agree that a teenage girl shouldn't be wearing a ton of makeup.

The Naked Palette is has a "cult" following in beauty community. Especially within the YouTube beauty community. I just got mine this year as a Birthday gift There are plenty of good quality dupes out their. I think NYX (which can be found at Ulta also) makes one. B&H Cosmetics makes one also.
Look on Youtube or Google Naked Palette Dupes and you will find something for half the price. At least she wants a nice neutral palette that can be used for everyday and some night looks. There are no "wild" colors in there. Good luck. I think Coastal Scents makes a dupe as well. It does come with a good quality brush.
