Hello my beauty lovelies! It has been almost 6 months since I’ve updated this blog of mine! Sorry for the lack of updates. Since my internship in L’Oreal Singapore, I haven’t had enough time to rest, let alone blog! Finally found time to write in this space so today I am going to review my newest addition to my Urban Decay family *drumrolls* – the highly raved Naked 3 Palette! Thanks to my lovely dear for getting it for me for Valentine’s Day!
Without further ado, here goes! Mega loooooove for the rose gold packaging cause I absolutely adore rose gold! Such a romantic colour (: As with Naked 2, Naked 3 comes in a sturdy metal tin which closes with a “click” (totally adore the packaging). The only thing that I don’t really fancy would be the crinkly texture on the tin which I don’t understand why.
The Naked 3 palette comes with 12 TOTALLY NEW (and insanely beautiful) rose-hued neutrals, all exclusive to this set. Choose from the ultra smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics, some with glitters too! My initial thought was that this isn’t the palette that I will be going head over heels for because:
#1 I have pretty medium to tanned skin, so I thought that the light pinky colours wouldn’t show up on my lids
#2 The pinkier lighter shadows look pretty much the same to me at first glance
#3 I already have the Naked 2 palette when it comes to a neutral palette
BUTTTTTT, it turned out that I was wrong about this lovely palette! Now that I have it, I am using it almost every day to work cause it’s such a beauty! The pinky lighter colours did show up on my lids and this palette allows me to create romantic wearable looks as well as smokier ones for a night out using the darker side of the palette.
The palette also includes Urban Decay’s good karma crease and eyeshadow brush for eyeshadow application. Here are the colours close up:
Strange – matte creamy white
Dust – light metallic champagne with chunks of glitter
Burnout – satin pinky-peach
Limit – matte pinky brown
Buzz – satin rose with glitter chunks
Trick – pinkish copper with silver microglitters
Nooner – matte creamy pinky taupe
Liar – satin pink-mauve
Factory – satin pink coppery brown
Mugshot – satin taupe
Darkside – satin plum taupe
Blackheart – matte deep chocolate with copper microglitters
Overall, I was pretty impressed by the usual buttery smooth quality of UD’s eyeshadows except for Buzz and Dust, which had a little bit of fall out due to the heavy chunks of glitter and Trick, in which the pigmentation wasn’t as good and a few layers were required to achieve the same pigmentation as the rest. I still find the palette a darling nevertheless because the colours were simply beautiful on my yellow medium skin! This isn’t a totally neutral palette because of the pinky rosy colours but nonetheless, the lower half of the palette included taupes and browns for everyday use.
The Naked 3 palette retails at S$83 at all Sephora stores. Grab yours before they run out like the first 2 Naked palettes! I would say GET IT if you already have Naked 1 and/or Naked 2! If you are looking for a totally neutral palette, consider getting Naked 1 (warmer tone) or Naked 2 (cooler tone) instead.
Hope you enjoyed this review and tell me what you think of this pinky-neutral palette! Share with me your looks for this palette too! (:
