Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I originally wrote this post and then swiftly deleted it. Do we really need another post in the blogosphere about an Urban Decay Naked palette? Well after a little consideration, I’ve decided we do! After all, can you ever get enough of a good thing? Nope, didn’t think so.

I’ve been lusting after the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette since it launched and I really have no bloody idea why it took me so long to buy it.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Okay, so here’s the low down.

Naked 3 is the third palette in the seriouslyyyy hyped Naked range. It features a collection of matte, pressed shimmer and glitter eye shadows in a range of pretty pinks, browns and golds. There are a few shades perfect for everyday wear, a couple that are awesome for glamming things up come evening and then the rest are so versatile, they could be used wherever and whenever (sounds like I’m about to burst into a Shakira song).

My favourite shades include Strange, which makes for the perfect eye-opening base. A gorgeous pale pink, called Dust, which features just a hint of glitter. Nooner, which is a matte brown designed to instantly defines the eyes. For a darker look, you can’t go far wrong with the glimmering Blackheart.

While an amazing range of colour is great, an eye shadow is only ever as good as its formula. Luckily, one of the best things about Urban Decay is that you can always rely on them for a brilliant formula. The colours are soft, easy to apply and build and blend beautifully. For an even longer-lasting result, it’s best to apply them with an Urban Decay primer. I picked up the Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion which helps to boost the shimmering effect within the eye shadow and considering it’s nearly party season, who doesn’t need a little shimmer boost.

It’s also worth mentioning that included inside the palette is a double-ended eye shadow brush. I’m talking a real, full sized brush – No nasty sponge applicator insight! It’s not often you can say that, so I was pretty impressed.

I’m guessing you can tell that I have completely fallen in love with this palette and I’ve already added the Smoky edition to my wish list. So if you’re looking for a gift for a beauty lover this Christmas, I’d definitely recommend picking up a Naked palette for their stocking.

    I am stuck between the Naked 1 or Naked 3, can’t decide which one would be better! This is swinging my decision back towards number 3! I really need to just at some point!

    I have the Naked 1 palette and it is my fave, I’ve never really managed to justify purchasing another Naked palette as I think they are all very similar?


    • Tiffany Tales

      The Smokey palette is quite different to the rest. They seem to be quite an addictive purchase x

  • I adore this palette! The shades are so so pretty :)


    • Tiffany Tales

      They really are :) x

  • I never reach for this palette ever but it’s absolutely gorgeous. Must start using it again x

  • I have wanted this palette for so long! And now you have made me want it even more, ahhh! I have the Naked 2, and I love it, but the colours in this are to die for! Xx

    • Tiffany Tales

      Urban Decay eye shadows really are the best x

  • It looks stunning! I’d like to see tutorial from you soon x


  • It’s funny how many times I’ve done this myself – written a post, thought it was oversaturation, and deleted it – but I think you’re right, you can’t have too many opinions, that’s what blogging is FOR.

    Naked 3 is actually my favourite of all the Naked range, but I’ve got my eyes on the smokey palette, too!

      Completely agree! The smokey palette is def one for the wish list :) x

  • Anne Couture

    Ugh, I’ve lusted over this palette for so long but I keep telling myself I own too many eye shadows… I have Vice 2 and Alice in Wonderland. I’m also lusting over Gwen Stefani’s Urban Decay palette for the same reason I love the Naked series… just beautiful everyday colors.
