Urban Decay - Naked 3

Naked 3 - £37
Ever since I got my hands on the first Naked eye shadow palette I knew I was hooked and since then I have wanted to get my hands on Naked 2 and 3. Not long ago, Feel Unique had a code for £10 off when you spend over £30. I couldn’t resist this great offer, so I choose to purchase Naked 3 for the price of £27 instead of £37 which in my eyes was a very good deal. At first I was stuck between Naked 2 and Naked 3 as I think they are both gorgeous and would love both in my collection. In the end I went for Naked 3 as I think the colours are just gorgeous, I love all the rose gold tones and I thought I would get a lot of use out of this palette every day. Also Naked 3 is the only Naked palette where all its colours are completely new and aren’t available anywhere else.

This palette contains 12 colours, including three mattes and the rest satin, shimmers or glitters. The colours range from some quite light and subtle which are perfect for everyday use and some darker shades which would be great for a heavier evening look. I love how versatile this palette is, it allows me to create a wide range of eye looks and it is really convenient for me as I travel a lot so I can take this palette with me and not have to worry about packing any other eye shadow products. I generally tend to use the matte shades during the day for work and the shimmery ones outside of work and in the evenings if I’m going out.

One of my favourite colours in Naked 3 is ‘Blackheart’ which is a deep black matte with red glitter throughout. This is like no other eye shadow colour I have seen before and I absolutely love using it on nights out for a dark smokey eye.

Naked 3 comes with a double-ended brush - one smaller end which I find best for applying the more glittery shadows which helps avoid fall out and the other end is a blending brush which blends really well. I do sometimes find it hard to find an eye brush that I am really happy with and they can be very expensive, so it is a great bonus to receive a good brush with this palette. Another great bonus of this is that it comes with all three of Urban Decay’s eye shadow primer potions – Original, Eden, Sin and Anit-aging. I’ve used most of these now and they lasted really well and it was useful that they were resealable which isn’t always the case with samples.

The packaging is another thing I love about the Naked 3 palette. It is a gorgeous rose-gold coloured tin with a large mirror inside. The first Naked palette is made from cardboard with a velvet covering and although this is strong and has lasted well, it is starting to look worn. So I am hoping the Naked 3 should last much better as it is protected in the tin case.

The quality of these eye shadows is really impressive. The colours are so pigmented, so when applied it doesn’t take much product to see a great result. As I said I often wear the more subtle colours for everyday and the staying power is amazing, they last on the eyelid all day without smudging or clumping up at all.

This palette retails at £37, so it works out as around £3 per eye shadow which is just amazing value. I was so impressed with the first Naked palette and I am so glad Naked 3 is just as good. Naked 2 is definitely on my wish list now, I hope to add this to my collection soon – am I keeping a look out for some more great Feel Unique offers!

Have you tried Naked 3? What do you think?
