Urban Decay Naked 3

Happy Valentines Day to Moi.  That’s right ladies, nothing beats treating the person you love most with a special treat.  As awkward as that may sound, I’ve learned that it is important to treat yourself on occasion, whether that be on a highly publicized holiday or a random Saturday afternoon.  To be honest, I was a bit hesitant in purchasing the new Urban Decay Naked 3 Pallet with it’s $54.00 price tag.  I do own the Naked 1 Pallet and decided to pass on the Naked 2 Pallet when I saw there was color repetition.  However, when I saw the Naked 3 Pallet my thoughts were much different.  I’m glad they took on a new direction and created a pallet of rose-gold hued neutrals.

The pallet comes in the same metallic packaging as the NAKET 2 pallet.  Personally, I do not care for this packaging.  I may transfer it onto a z-pallet depending on how often I use it.  It is rather bulky and does not feel sturdy.

The pallet includes foil samples of 4 Urban Decay primers: Original, Eden, Sin and Anti-Aging and a double sided brush.

The colors look absolutely gorgeous.  I regret not purchasing this when it was released so I could use it during the winter.  I do not see myself using this in the summer but rather saving it for fall.  This is a great add-on and makes up for the foil samples.

Look how beautiful the pallet looks!

Urban Decay has done it again!  Each shade is rich in its color payoff, which is amplified when used alongside their primers.  The swatches taken do not have a primer.  The color variation does appear somewhat monochromatic when blending.  This is not a pallet that can really be used alone if you are looking for color variation, but a great pallet for accent colors.  I’ve found “Strange” to be very powdery and chalky.  It’s matte finish appears a tad underwhelming on fair skin, but would look lovely on a tan.  My second least favorite is “Trick” because of the amount of fallout.  I have found I gravitate more towards “Nooner” and “Limit” for their velvety finish and have fallen head over heels for “Dust”.  This pallet is beautiful.  I only wish Urban Decay would change the packaging to something less bulky or noisy, but the eyeshadows  make up for the packaging.  I do see myself gravitating towards this pallet during the fall.

Have you guys purchased the Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette?  Which one is your favorite?
