I am a huge fan of Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palettes and is a proud owner of a few palettes like the Vice 1&2, 15 Anniversary and more. These are mainly color palettes with a variety of color choices to choose from.
When the Naked Palette was first released, it did not appeal much to me as I’m not really a fan of neutrals. Same thing for the Naked 2, I felt that the colors are too dull but no doubt it is a great palette for people who love neutrals.
Naked 3, however was different. I personally love pink tones and I was excited when I see that the Naked 3 is a pink/rose toned palette. I grabbed it when it is made available at our local Sephora stores. The Naked 3 palette is retailing at SGD83.
The Naked 3 consists of 12 shadows with a mix of various finishes. It also comes with a decent dual ended eyeshadow brush.
From Left to Right:
Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, BlackHeart.
Strange: Strange is a matte creamy beige which swatches really well. The texture is very creamy and goes on the lids smoothly. This is a good highlight for the brow bone.
Dust: Dust is a light glittery pink which is really pretty. However, I feel that it lacks in the pigmentation. It’s more glitter than color. A base is recommended for the color to show up more. There’s some fallout too.
Burnout: Burnout is a peach pink shimmery color. Goes on very smoothly.
Limit: Limit is another matte shade, a light dusty rose is how I would describe it. Like Strange, it’s very creamy and goes on very nicely.
Buzz: Buzz is a shimmery bronze with pink undertones. Smooth and glides on the lids.
Trick: Trick is a bronze with gold shimmers. It swatches lighter than on pan but the texture is velvety smooth.
Nooner: Nooner is the 3rd matte shade in the palette. It’s a dark dusty rose shade with more brown tones in it. It is creamy but a little crumbly when I swatch it. This is a great color for the crease.
Liar: Liar is a very pigmented shimmery brown which is also very creamy. It’s like a brown with a wash of pink shimmer.
Factory: Factory is a deep brown with light gold shimmer. It’s is pigmented but not as smooth as the others.
Mugshot: Mugshot is a shimmery neutral brown which is very creamy and goes on well on the lids.
Darkside: Darkside is a dark brown with a little shimmer. I don’t really like it as it’s crumbly and don’t really swatch well. Be careful of fallout with this color.
BlackHeart: BlackHeart is a matte black with red glitter. It ain’t the most pigmented but I think the glitter will show up nicely with a good base.
Overall, the Naked 3 Palette is a nice palette for that everyday look. I won’t say it’s good for night looks though you can definitely do a few nice smokey eyes with the shades available. I rate this palette a 3.8/5.
