Urban Decay Naked 3
I am so behind the crowd with this one but I finally have it! You are looking at, well reading about, the new proud owner of the Naked 3 palette (Woohoo). It’s taken me a while to make the decision to buy this palette as I’m not a huge eyeshadow fanatic but having used it, I am a eyeshadow lover again!

The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette comes with 12 never seen before shades, in rose hued neutrals, with a range from lights, shimmering pinks, to deep glittering blacks there’s something for everyone in this little magic bar. There’s a variety of mattes, pearlescent and metallic, so something for every occasion whether you want to jazz it up in the office or smoulder in the club. These shadows are super mega pigmented, and feature Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System, so they apply lovely and velvety without compromising on bendability, colour or staying power. The embossed rose tin case is really sturdy so you can throw this in your bag and know your shadows are safe, the shadows also come with a double ended brush (which is cruelty-free) so even if your just starting out you’re not left high and dry.

As you can tell the theme of this palette is very rose and pink toned with a lot of shimmer/glitter, and who can say no to more glitter. Personally I like to wear more pinks/golds/earthy toned colours appose to more primary colours, but you can still create some incredible looks with these colours. They apply incredibly easily and if you make a mistake like applying too much of Blackheart, like I did - brilliant I know, then they blend out so quickly without making a mess of your already created work. There’s barley any fall out from these shadows even if you really dig at them, the remainder doesn’t budge.

Let’s start from the beginning; the first four shades of the palette are your very light colours, Strange / Dust / Burnout / Limit. Strange and Limit are your super velvety base colours or highlighter colours, whilst Dust and Burnout are your super shimmery sparkle colours

Next up we have your slightly deeper colours, Buzz / Trick / Nooner / Liar, Buzz and Trick are again your super shimmery sparkle colours, whereas Nooner is more of a matte velvety colour, great for the crease or as a transition colour, and Liar is a very beautiful velvet colour with a hint of shimmer in it.

And last not least we have the ultimate dark colours, Factory / Mugshot / Darkside / Blackheart, Factory and Mugshot are much deeper in colour but lighter in shimmer, whereas Darkside is darker in colour but has slightly more shimmer, and Blackheart is a super black/red with flecks of rose gold shimmer throughout, the real show stopper.

As my first official eye shadow palette I can happily recommend this to anyone and everyone, the quality of the shadows and the brush, the application, the pigmentation are all above basic expectations. If you haven’t already got the Naked 3, do me favour? Get this bad boy in your bag!!
