The Naked 3 Palette

January 15, 2014

It's probably not surprising that upon hearing news of the release of the newest Naked addition, an uncontrollable desire to complete the trilogy was awoken... and here we are, Naked 3 palette in tow. (Actually, it must be noted that my desire was so strong it must have rubbed off on Richard, who marched himself down to the Urban Decay counter the day of it's release to surprise me with the final installment when I got home from work - he's a good egg!)

I have to admit that at first I was slightly skeptical to whether I would be buying virtually the same palette; after all, between the Naked 1 and 2 they've got the neutral colour spectrum covered right? Well, it appears not. Naked 3 offers a much more pink toned array of shades that are different enough from the previous two palettes without drifting too far off the neutral spectrum. As i'm a huge fan of rose gold i'm loving shades in this palette; buzz, liar, factory and mugshot in particular have been getting a lot of use lately. Limit and Nooner are also a great combination for when i'm in the mood for a matte finish.

As with all the Urban Decay palettes, the quality does not disappoint, both the packaging and eye shadow texture is pretty impressive, making the £37 price point rather respectable. So I guess the real dilemma is whether or not you need it? Well, that depends upon your definition of need...

  2. I really like the look of the shades in the Naked 3 palette but I barely get any use out of my Naked palette. The problem I have is that the shades in the Naked palette barely look pigmented against my skin tone so blending and creating different looks is pretty difficult.

    Naked 3 looks like the palette of my dreams though. I might have to take a closer look before deciding.

    These photos are so pretty!

  6. Gorgeous pictures! I love how you photograph your subjects. Although the palette is lovely, I'm not sure I will be going after this one. I have my eyes set on Lorac Unzipped and Tarte beMATTEnificant palette, which I find more versatile for me.
