Makeup Review: Urban Decay Naked Palette 3.

So it's finally October, time for cold weather meaning I can finally dress up in lots of layers again! In this post I will be reviewing the Naked 3 Palette from Urban Decay which I have been waiting to get my hands on for years and see what all the hype is about.

I decided to go for the Naked 3 Palette because I felt the colours inside suited me more (especially for this season) and not only that pretty much every YouTuber/Make-up Artist I watch has one of these in their make-up collection. First of all can I just say I looove this case. It's a lovely rose gold metal with ridges indented across the outside. It contains 12 eye-shadows in variations of pink and brown and it also comes with a synthetic, dual-ended eye-shadow brush (blending and flat) which is probably one of the best brushes I've ever used. It's so soft, great quality and easy to use.

It also came with four sample packets of their primers: Original, Eden, Sin and Anti-Aging which you can see below:

 I've only used Original so far and you can definitely tell the difference when you use it. It allows your eye-shadow to stay in place and keeps the colour bright and lively.

It's a really lovely palette, perfect for me.

There is (from left to right) Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside and Blackheart.
I've tried them all and they've all stayed on for just over eight hours without creasing or fading. They're so pigmented, very blendable and easy to use and build up. Darkside and Factory are my favourites so far. Some of them you have to use a fair few layers with to build up a decent look. 

The only one I had a problem with was Dust. Dust was probably the worst as it had quite a lot of fallout so I can't really use it on its own as a shadow. I also don't like the highlighting shade, it isn't as light reflective as I'd like it to be.

But other than that, I really love this palette and I am so glad I finally have it in my make-up collection! If you're questioning whether to get it or not like I was, you should, it's so worth the money I promise.

I know I didn't do swatches but if you want to see what each one looks like then just Google it, you can easily find some there.

Have you tried this palette? What do you think of it?

  1. I have always wanted to buy one of the nakes palette's but I never know which one! Which one is your favourite??

    Would love if you could give me any advice on my latest post!

  4. Loooving this. Definitely on my wish list as well. I heard the Sleek ones are a good cheaper alternative. Did you have the chance to compare those two?

    1. I didn't actually! But I know what you mean and I would like to try the Sleek ones. I think I'll try and compare them in the future. Thanks for reading!
