Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette Review

 

Yes I've gone and done it. I said I wouldn't buy it but lookey here. I remember when I first saw the pictures floating around Instagram of this, I didn't like it. I thought it was tacky looking. Obviously I was quite wrong. It's completely amazing and beautiful.

My only gripe with this palette, I wish they would have changed the packaging. I mean, I can dig the metal case it's quite secure and everything. But I think it would have been neat if it differed from Naked 2. It's just not my favorite. But that's just me. The first Naked palette was warm toned, second was cool, and this is more rose-gold toned shadows. This of course comes with 12 new awesome shadows. All excellent quality, highly pigmented. A mixture of shimmer, mattes and sparkles. A dual ended brush, and samples of all their eyeshadow primer potions. A crowd pleaser all around.

Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick.

Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, Blackheart

I also thought it might have been nice if they named the shadows something with more of a romantic theme.. Idk just spitballing here.. I still love this with all my being..

The only shadow I'm not so sure about is dust. It felt a little chalky to me. But none the less, it's pretty.

My favorites: Limit, Buzz, Nooner, Liar and Blackheart. Blackheart is like no shadow I've seen.. Black with tons of red sparkle. Amazing. Something else I noticed about these shadows, I didn't get a ton of fallout! I usually do get fallout with the shimmery UD shadows but from what I've seen, I have a lot less with this particular palette.

The brush included is the one on the bottom. I wanted to show you a comparison between the other brushes they've included in palettes. On top we have the vice 2 brush and the middle is Naked 2. As you can see, the right side has a small shader brush pretty much identical to the Naked 2 brush. The left side is more of a flat blending brush / large shader. It's really multipurpose if you ask me. I really like the fact that they changed the brush up! These brushes are always amazing quality!

So this palette is a definite winner in my book. I'm so glad I bought it, when I was checking out at Ulta, the lady behind me said she loved it so much! I was so excited to get home and play with it! I was not disappointed. I'm hoping to get a tutorial up with this palette soon, if the lighting cooperates with me! I hope you all enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading!!

    1. Thank you! The only reason I ended up buying it was because of fellow bloggers! I just saw too many gorgeous pictures! I love the original naked palette so much, not a huge fan of the second one though. And this one is obviously amazing! Get one!! Xox
