Urban Decay Naked 3 Review

I purchased the Urban Decay Naked 3 the day after it released at my Sephora.  So I've owned it for about a month now.  So this is a tried and true review.  I've given it a chance, I've used it a lot, I've seen what the colors can or can not do.  And I'm sure you're sick to death of Naked 3 reviews but I figured I should write this.

Let's start off by saying I was sooo excited for this palette.  I looked at swatches and reviews from the people who get sent palettes to try and review before they're for sale.  I saw it and immediately thought what an awesome bridal palette this would be.  And it is.


This palette retails for $52.  $52 sounds like a lot but when you think about the fact that you're getting 12 full-sized Urban Decay shadows, which retail for $18/apiece, you're actually saving $164 by buying them in a palette.


The colors:

Strange: 
What Urban Decay (I'm going to call them UD) says: "pale neutral-pink matte satin"
What I think:  their description is pretty good, but there's just the slightest hint of pink in there, it's really a good neutral color.

Dust:
What UD says: "pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter"
What I think:  This shadow is no bueno.  The color itself is really pretty.  However, it's kinda chalky and you really don't get any kind of color payoff from it.  It really is like pink fairy dust, as you're left with a light pink glitter.

Burnout:
What UD says: "light pinky-peach satin"
What I think:  I'd call it more of a shimmer, but it's pretty.

Limit:
What UD says: "light dusty rose matte"
What I think:  Gorgeous color.  I love this one.  It's a purple-based pink matte shadow.  It's beautiful.

Buzz:
What UD says: "metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter"
What I think:  This is not a glitter like their other glitters.  You can barely see it.  So it's more just a shimmery shadow.  I love the color.

Trick:
What UD says: "light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-glitter"
What I think:  It's a coppery-rose gold with glitter.  Not my favorite color in the bunch but I'm also not huge on golds.  I don't love UD's Half Baked shadow either, which is in both of the other Naked palettes.

Nooner:
What UD says: "medium pinky-brown matte:
What I think:  This color is probably my favorite color in the palette.  This and "Limit" are.  These mattes are really smooth and blend really, really well.  This one is great for adding depth to the crease.

Liar:
What UD says: "medium metallic mauve shimmer"
What I think:  It's a pretty shimmery color for a smokey eye.

Factory:
What UD says:  "pinky-brown satin"
What I think:  I love that this isn't super shimmery, just slightly.  Another great color for a smokey eye.

Mugshot:
What UD says: "metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift"
What I think:  I guess if you look really hard, you can see the pink in there but it's basically a taupe color.  Quite shimmery.

Darkside:
What UD says: "deep taupe-mauve satin"
What I think:  It's a shimmery dark grey purpley pink color haha.  Does that make sense?  This photographed less purple than it looks in person.

Blackheart:
What UD says:  "smokey black matte with rosy red microsparkle"
What I think:  To me, it doesn't look black.  It looks like a deep, deep reddish brown with rose sparkles.  This color is WAY more pigmented than I had expected.  LOVE this color!  This color looks more black in the picture than it does in person.

Swatches of the colors over the sample of their original Primer Potion:

I own all three Naked palettes.  I was really excited about this one because it was different from the others, it was more specific.  I do like it.  I think the colors are all pretty and nicely pigmented (with the exception of "Dust").  However, here's my problem:  I have used this palette many, many times and I have used different colors in different places, over different bases and I've really mixed up where and how I use the colors... all of the looks I have done look the same.  I don't know how that's possible or why that is but it's true.  No matter what I do, everything looks the same.  I also wish there was a shimmery highlight color because "Dust" just doesn't work.

I still think this palette is an AMAZING bridal palette!!  It looks great on everyone I've seen it on, from dark skin to light skin, blue eyes to brown eyes, especially green eyes.  So it really is beautiful and neutral.  Just don't expect to get a huge range of looks from this palette because I've tried and it hasn't happened haha.  

So here's a bridal look I did when I got the palette:


And the color placement:

Did you get a Naked 3 yet?  What do you think?  If not, do you plan to get one?

  5. I was SO excited to get this palette. The colors look just beautiful in the palette. But my experience has been a similar one to yours. All the pink colors just look exactly the same on me. It doesn't seem to matter what colors I use or where - everything looks the same. I was so very disappointed with Naked 3. I wanted to love it so much.

  6. I have tried all the Naked palettes and really like the Naked 3 palette. I have found it was ideal for daytime daily use. Here's a video I posted on how I use them: http://youtu.be/H9TmDbe4lpA

  7. I like the palette because you can't make a mistake unless you use the really dark colour (blackheart). There are no colours that can make you go significantly wrong on a whim (turquoise, yellow) so I'm pretty happy with it but that said, it is overpriced by about $20 compared to what other prestige companies are offering.

  8. You look stunning. I have this palette and I so love it. I super love the shades for they are light and seem so natural on skin. I find it perfect for everyday use. Its def worth it.

  9. You can make any palette look gorgeous. ;) I also bought this, initially super excited about it but the longer I have it, the more I realize I'll rarely use it. My favorite is the original NAKED Palette and while I have it, NAKED 2 and 3, I find the original much more wearable. Also, 2 and 3 aren't as high quality as the original. I find the shadows hard and not as pigmented.

  10. I completely agree when you say you get the same look with all different color placements. I have tried about 6 different looks and they all look the same. I was super excited to get this palette and I do like it but I don't think it lives up to the hype!
