Urban Decay Naked 3

5 Feb 2015

When Urban Decay released the newest full size palette to join the Naked family to the range, Naked 3, I knew I had to have it. It seemed like everyone went beauty obsessed with the Naked 3 palette, and mainly because of the packaging; beautiful rose gold, a colour every girl adores.

Like all full sized Naked palettes, there's 12 shades housed inside ranging with a definite theme of beautiful pinks to tempting browns. For me, it's completely different to the shades you'd expect from an Urban Decay Naked palette, which are usually more neutral toned.

Strange is a pale neutral white with slight pink undertones and a satin matte finish.
Dust is a warm toned light-medium pink with super fine white and gold glitter finish.
Burnout is a rosy-peach with a pearl finish.
Limit is a lovely mauve with pink undertones and a matte finish.
Buzz is a copper with warm rose undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish.
Trick is another copper, with brown undertones and soft gold shimmer with a frost finish.
Nooner is a plum with a touch of rose and a matte finish.
Liar is a lovely everyday wearable brown with warm undertones and a frost finish.
Factory is a very, medium toned brown with a slight red/copper undertone and pearl finish.
Mugshot is a warm taupe with frosty metallic finish.
Darkside one of the few cool-toned shades in the palette, a purple-taupe with pearl finish.
Blackheart is a deep almost black burgundy, with violet and brown undertones and violet/pink micro-glitter finish.

As with all Urban Decay shadows, I find each shade to be heavily pigmented - even Strange which is the palest of the shades in Naked 3. No matter what the finish, the shades apply effortlessly and blend even easier, making application a breeze. Unlike other palettes where I have some favourites but other shades don't bother me too much, I actually really love every single shade in the Naked 3 palette. My favourite shades are Limit, Liar and Mugshot. 

Some of the shades have a tiny bit of fallout, but nothing too drastic so it doesn't worry me too much. The palette has is of the same sturdy material as Naked 2, which I prefer to the design and material used for the original Naked palette, and gosh I do love the rose gold theme!

When Naked 3 first joined my beauty stash, I didn't use it much. I think I got so caught up in the hype when it was released that by the time it arrived, I just didn't fancy it that much. Over the past couple of months though I've been reaching for it more and more, and it's even on it's way to becoming my favourite Naked palette yet!

The Naked 3 palette costs £37. You can check out my original Naked palette review here and my Naked 2 palette review here.
