Review: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette!

Hey Everyone!

I have a review for you today on the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette that was recently released! There is A LOT of hype around this palette and I wanted to share my thoughts and let you know if it's worth it to purchase! Let's get on to the swatches and info shall we?!

  • All photos taken in artificial light.
  • Swatch photos are taken using flash.
  • All swatches are done over Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer.

The Naked 3 packaging is absolutely stunning. It's a rose gold case with ripples on the top and Naked 3 Urban Decay written in gold. The packaging feels quite sturdy and I really like the fact that it snaps shut, rather than with the first palette where there is just a magnetic closure. I also like the fact that the packaging is not a felt covering like the first palette as I find that type of packaging gets dirty easy.

This palette contains a large mirror in the interior, 12 shadows, and also comes with a double ended gold brush.

All of the shadows in the Naked 3 have a rose gold/pink tone to them.

From Left to Right: Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, & Trick
Strange: Strange is a very pale pinky skintone shade that works great as a brow and inner corner highlight. It has a slight satin finish.

Dust: Dust is my least favorite of this bunch. It's a pink shadow containing glitter. The shadow is very hard to work with and any attempt of blending causes major glitter fallout.

Burnout: Burnout is a gorgeous rosey pink shadow and has a satin finish.

Limit: Limit is a mauve matte shade that is perfect for the crease as a transition color.

Buzz: Buzz is a deep rose pink with a satin finish. I like to mix Buzz with Burnout on the lid!

Trick: Trick is a beautiful rose gold. I find it to be much more flattering than Half Baked and it really makes Hazel eyes pop!

From Left to Right: Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, & Blackheart
Nooner: Nooner is a deep mauve matte shade that works well to deepen up the crease for a more subtle look.

Liar: Liar is a beautiful rose taupe shadow that has a satin finish.

Factory: Factory is a slightly darker and more brown version of Liar.

Mugshot: Mugshot is a taupe with a slight rose undertone. I really love this shadow and find it to be one of my favorites.

Darkside: Darkshide is sort of like a duochrome in the sense that is has a brown undertone but comes off as being a very strong taupe. You can see a slight pink/purple undertone with this shadow.

Blackheart: Blackheart is a charcoal black with a slight pink undertone and deep pink/red sparkles throughout. The sparkles don't show up as much once the shadow is blended out.

Overall, I really adore this palette and I definitely think that it is worth trying out if you like these types of shadows. I find that this range of colors works great with pale skin and really brings out the gold in my eyes.

My favorites from this palette are Limit, Trick, Nooner, Mugshot, & Darkside.

This palette costs $52 and can be found at Sephora, Urban Decay, & Ulta.
