Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Following the success of Urban Decay’s Naked and Naked 2 palette comes Naked 3 (obviously) – yes I know, I am slow, you know about this one already, but better late than never, right?!

I really do think the Naked palettes are excellent – Naked 2 is my favourite (but I do have an aversion to cardboard packaging, which the first Naked palette is), because it is just extremely useful. If someone came to me and wanted one kit for every day make up I’d say get this – because even though it costs £30+ it’s well worth it for the variety of shades. 

Naked 3 takes on a warmer, pinker twist than the previous 2 palettes.

Naked 3 looks similar to the other palettes which I like.  Naked 3 contains 12 new shades with a mixture of matte, pearl and metallics.  You also get a double ended brush (always a good quality one with UD) and a sampler with some sachets of Urban Decay Primer Potion (in the four formulas, Original, Sin, Eden and Anti-Aging). 

Yay for a tin case! it is durable and I like the big mirror.

Here are the colours:

The word that springs to mind when I see this palette is; ROSE. It’s a warm-neutral palette, people who dislike warmish tones may not like this palette – Naked 2 is cooler and more neutral.  There’s a romantic soft feel to this palette and more light and mid toned colours (just two deep shades) which I imagine makes it a really easy palette to use for day to day. For example, I find my NARS Narsissist for example, is neutral but gives me more smokier looks – without even thinking I end up doing a fairly strong look with this palette, whereas with Naked3 I seem to end up with a very soft look. 

First Shades:

Second Half:

Colours are described as; Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin), Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter), Burnout (light pinky-peach satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte), Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter), Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle), Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte), Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer), Factory (pinky-brown satin), Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift), Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin) and Blackheart (smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle). 

I found all the shades extremely soft and pigmented and just really good quality – the mattes are probably the least pigmented of all the colours but they’re not bad at all. 
An average look I do with this one:

I end up with a soft wearable eye with this palette but it is definitely on the pink side – I notice some of the pinker tones can make my eyes look a bit ‘weepy’ if I don’t mix them with a cool tone too or liner.
This palette costs £37 and you can buy it here
