Despite getting this lovely palette when it first released, I decided to hold off on wiring about it. I knew everyones feed was going to be absolutely bombarded with everyone talking about it and I felt I should really give it a go and try it out for a while so I can give my full, honest review. Of course it amazing, and of course I totally don’t need it.. But I’m sure you’ll all understand when I say I do need it.. I don’t have any palette like it and pinks aren’t something I usually would go for.
Firstly I’ll talk about the packaging. Its in a metal tin case, very similar to that of the Naked 2 palette, except this time its got a textured pattern on it and the Naked 3 text is in a beautiful gold colour which compliments the rosy tin quite nicely. I must say I do like this style of packaging more over the original Naked palette as I feel its a lot more sturdy and like its going to protect my shadows a lot better if I drop it.
There are some absolutely gorgeous shades packed in this palette so heres my rundown of them all:
Strange – An off white matte colour that makes a great brow highlight. The matte texture isn’t chalky at all and its pigmented well. It feels buttery soft and blends wonderfully.
Dust – This is a super glittery light pink colour, it has a little fallout if you’re not careful but its an amazingly pigmented colour.
Burnout – This is quite similar to Dust but its not nearly as glittery and its slightly darker. It blends great and its super soft, buttery eyeshadow.
Limit – The second matte eyeshadow in this palette, its a mauvey-pink colour which looks wonderful in the crease when used with other colours from the palette. Its not chalky and blends well.
Buzz – This is personally one of my favourite colours, its a shimmery lilac colour that packs a little bit of sparkle. Its so buttery and its a great colour for adding a little pop to your look.
Trick – Another star of the palette for me, its a beautiful rose gold colour thats quite shimmery too. It looks lovely washed all over the lid and I honest don’t have anything bad to say about it!
Nooner – This is the third matte colour in the palette, slightly darker in tone that limit and it also is not chalky and blends well.
Liar – This lovely bronze colour is another great one for all over the lid, it has beautiful rosy undertone which gives it that extra bit of something on the eyes.
Factory – This is another bronzy-rose colour, just like all the other shadows its nice a buttery and blends really well.
Mugshot – A more cool toned brownish colour that looks really pretty as well as being a greatly pigmented shadow.
Darkside – This is a charcoal-grey colour which has a nice amount of shimmer in it, its a lovely colour for those darker, smokier looks.
Blackheart – The colour everyone got excited about! I can see why, its a super black eyeshadow with red-pink glitter running through it. It looks lovely packed on top of a regular black liner to make it a little different.
I can’t say I think much of the brush that comes with the palette but I’ve never particularly been a fan of any of the Urban Decay brushes. It okay, but not something I would reach for over my other brushes. I really like this palette though, at first I was a little unsure as the rosy hues kind of scared me a little. Theres no need to worry though as the colours are a lot easier to work with than I thought they’d be! Its generally another stunning palette from one of my favourite brands and if you happen to see it store, you should definitely have a little swoon.
