Review & Swatches | Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Hello lovely's. Today i wanted to share my opinion on the much talked about Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I think everyone and their mothers have heard about the very successful Naked Line from Urban Decay, so much in fact that many other major makeup brands are attempting to recreate this wonderful palette. However, Naked 3 is quite different to many of the other brands because of its beautiful pinky/rose tones; so its nice to see UD expanding to meet everybody's criteria.  

The packaging of the Naked 3 Palette is very similar to that of the Naked 2 Palette, a sturdy metal case that snaps shut and is very easy to clean and keep all pretty on your vanity. That's the one thing that gets me about the Naked Line; Why is the Naked 1 Palette packaging awful?

Strange: A very light matte pink shade with slight beige undetones
Dust: Very shimmery peachy pink with silver reflex glitters
Burnout: Satin brown/pink shade
Limit: Matte brown shade with very pink undertones

Buzz: Satin Rose with brown undertones, very tiny microglitters
Trick: Copper pink with silver microglitters
Nooner: Matte taupe
Liar: Satin pinky mauve

Factory: Satin brown with very warm undertones
Mugshot: Gold taupe with a satin finish
Darkside: Satin taupe with plum undertones
Blackheart: Matte coal black with copper/pink glitters

Overall i love this palette. I love how versatile it is from very neutrals to a smokey eye and it is something different from the typical everyday brown shades. All the shadows in the palette swatch beautifully with the exception of dust due to its high glitter content but i found with a spray of Mac's Fix+ it leaves a lot less fall out. My favourite shades in this palette are Buzz, Trick and Limit. 

I hesitated purchasing this palette for a while as i was unsure weather i wold be able to pull off such pink toned shadows without looking like i had been balling my eyes out to an episode of hollyoaks. But i actually found it to be very flattering and a nice change to the staple brown shades i reach for on a daily basis. 

Naked 3 is available in all major department stores, i got mine at here (£38) 

Do you love pinky neutrals? Will you be trying this palette out? Let me know.
