Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I don't need another eyeshadow palette. I don't need another eyeshadow palette. I don't need another eyeshadow palette. Oh BUM, I'm in Debenhams at the Urban Decay counter and I'm looking at another eyeshadow palette. Okay, so I bought another eyeshadow palette.

But there in lies the rub, Urban Decay Naked 3 isn't just 'another' eyeshadow palette. It's a rose gold beauty with colours unlike I've ever owned before. If you thought you'd have them all when you purchased the original Naked palette and then Naked 2, then you need to rethink just how little scope there is for the peachy, pink and gold tones. 12 stunning shades, of which 3 are matte and 9 are full of shimmer, all encased in a tin much like Naked 2 which is much easier for transportation and for keeping clean.

I've been using Naked 3 nonstop for the week I've owned it, and it's so transferable from day to night looks. The left side of the palette leans more toward the light, subtle pink and gold hues that can easy blend together with minimal effort. Then you have the right side of the palette, perfect for the ultimate in rose gold smokey eyes. There are a few shades that have bigger fall out than others, but as they're on the lighter side it's so easy to dust them off with a fluffy brush and clean up with a little concealer. Paired with the Urban Decay Primer Potion (of which you get 4 mini samples in the pack) and you've got a potent, long lasting combination that works all year round.

The brush is your standard UD affair, with a fluffier end for blending and closely packed settle of bristles on the other for more rigid application of colour. I find this one slightly easier to work with than the Naked 2 brush, but I'm still going to invest in some newer eyeshadow brushes from MAC to make the process a little easier. With any luck I should do a little tutorial with this palette, as it's so easy to work with and could well be my first Get Ready With Me video!

Have you invested in a naughty pre/post Christmas treat? What do you think of Urban Decay's choice of colours?

    1. It's amazing how easy the colours blend together and also just how nice it is to wear the darker end of the palette and still be able to get away with it for daytime!

  5. I got this for Christmas off my parents as a surprise! I've used it almost everyday since. I didn't think rose gold and pink eye shadow was for me, but ohhh boy it is!
    Love your pictures in this post, really does it justice!

  8. Please stop enabling me! I want this so badly, Blackheart is unlike any shade I've ever seen. But I'm going to New York next month so it will have to wait.

  11. I don't LOVE Naked 2 (which is the one I have), I only like the more golden shades because I'm not a fan of taupes on me but this looks right up my alley!

    1. I'm pretty much the same, I opt for the bronze tones of the Naked 2, so this palette was more my kind of colouring.

  12. Still not sure whether I really want it or not.. I'll be able to have a look at it in person during my next visit to London & I'll see what my heart orders me to do ;) Blackheart looks like such a stunning colour!

  15. I can't say I'm not tempted to get this, the colours look fabulous and all the swatches and make-up looks I've seen have been gorgeous. Naked Palettes really are great investments - just need to summon up the courage to pay £37 on one haha xx

    1. Haha, it is slightly painful having over your debit card. I did have a little buyers remorse when I left the shop, but it quickly disappeared when I saw the beautiful amount of colours at my disposal.

  16. This is so beautiful but the colours really don't work for my skin tone. I'm looking at the Naked 2 palette now though because I got sucked into the whole Urban Decay Naked palettes thing.

    1. I wonder if there might yet be hope if you mix them with other neutral colours that you own? I know I've been experimenting with adding this into other palettes that I have.

  17. Ahh this looks so beautiful! Shamefully, I have yet to own a Naked palette, although I have a couple of other UD ones. I really want the original! xx

  24. I'm SO tempted to purchase this - it looks sooo beautiful!. Ironically I indulged in the Naked I as a be all and end all of my eyeshadow adventures. Clearly you don't know what you're missing out on until Urban Decay launches something new.
