The Naked 1& 2 are the industries best selling palettes and have completely changed the way some of us wear eyeshadow forever. Both were packed with beautiful bronzes, browns and silvers, ideal for the creating perfect nude looks. Naturally when Urban Decay announced the release of the Naked 3, the blogosphere went crazy!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the eagerly awaited palette back in December and have spent a few months getting to grips with the colours and finding my favourite ways to wear them.
Unlike other nude palettes that have been recently launched, this palette contains 12 rose hued shades. From pale pinks to a deep black (with pink glitter particles of course!). This palette contains every finish a girl could want; smooth mattes, shimmering metallics and pretty pearls.
Standout shades that are worth mentioning are Nooner – a pinky brown matte shade, Burnout- a peach, satin finish shade and my favourite Liar- a warm, shimmering brown.
As with the other Naked palettes, the Naked 3 is ideal at creating any look. From a natural, pretty eye to a romantic smokey eye. Each shade is easily wearable, intensely pigmented and amazingly buttery. The palette comes with a week’s worth of all 4 Primer Potions and a great quality, double ended brush.
Overall I would say this palette is well worth the hype but not necessarily an essential. The colours is the previous Naked palettes where easier to wear on an everyday basis whereas this palette creates a specific look altogether.
Priced at £37, it may seem steep in cost. But really you’re only paying £3 per eye shadow, which weigh 1.5g. MAC eyeshadows also weigh 1.5g but they cost £12.50… each! So it’s easy to see why these palettes have had such huge success.
