Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette | Review + Swatches

Oh yeah, Naked fans - the third palette in the Naked line has finally made its grand arrival and if you want the shortest review so you can quit reading right here: It is fantastic! If you own the first two Naked palettes, you're aware that there is some overlap in colors and Naked 2 wasn't all that different from the first Naked palette. Naked 3 is an entirely new palette made up of 12 brand new shades that lean towards rose gold and pink tones.

This palette retails for $52 and can be found at Sephora, Ulta and

The Naked 3 palette comes with a dual-ended brush; one side is flatter for packing on color, and the other end is more round for blending. The brush works great and serves its purpose well. 

Not shown in the picture are deluxe samples of their beloved eye primer in the shades Original, Sin, Anti-Aging and Eden which come with the palette. Each sample is said to last for a week of applications. 

As you can tell, all of these shadows have a pinkish, rose gold undertone. For me, this is the most complementary Naked palette for my fair skin tone. I can wear many of these shades alone and they are gorgeous, pigmented, shimmering and they last all day long. If you have paler skin, this palette is a must in your collection. It is going to look amazing on your skin. Those without fair skin tones, this is going to look amazing on you as well! This is a nude palette that is suitable for any collection and wearable for any occasion - a regular day at work, or a night out on the town.

I found the quality of each shadow to be very buttery, smooth and pigmented except for Dust which had some chunkier shimmer in it which made it a bit more powdery and more prone to fall-out than the other colors. Dust is the one so-so color in the palette, but aside from it I would rate this palette an A+ and recommend it to anyone. 

My absolute favorite colors from Naked 3 are Limit (perfect for the crease), Liar and Factory. Blackheart is also a really cool color (black with pinkish red glitter) but I don't use black shadow all that often so I'm not sure how much use I'll really get out of it. I just enjoy looking at it

What do you think? Will you be putting the Naked 3 palette on your Christmas list this year?
