I recently picked up the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette in the boxing day sales and have been using it ever since on an almost daily basis. It is such an amazing quality beautiful palette which is perfect for all occasions, so I figured I just had to do a review on my blog to let you all know how much I’ve been loving it!
I got the palette from Debenhams, and it was around the £27 mark in the sale (which is an amazing bargain), however you can buy it here for £39.50, which is still quite good price considering how lovely this palette is! It comes with twelve never before seen shades in rose gold hues, ranging from light shimmer shades to dark shades with chunky glitter in them. The palette also comes with a double ended brush, which is a really nice touch although I prefer using my own brushes to the Urban Decay ones as I feel they’re not very flexible and aren’t the best at blending, however they’re really soft and I know loads of people who do love the brushes that come with these palettes. The mirror is very large, and coupled with the dual ended brush it makes it a really convenient palette for travelling!
The packaging is very pretty, and I much prefer the metal to the suedette packaging of Naked 2, which I did a review on here as it doesn’t get as messy with makeup stains and the writing has no risk of rubbing away. The packaging is rose gold, which reflects the eyeshadows inside perfectly and the closure on the palette is really sturdy and doesn’t feel like it’ll flop open. The palette itself is really heavy feeling and luxury.
The shade range is really beautiful, with something for everybody and any look you want to create. They’re all based on rose gold hues, which is a beautiful look for spring time in my opinion (although we’re not quite there yet, even though I wish we were!) however whilst the lighter shades can be used in an everyday look, they also seamlessly pass over into darker smokier looks using the end of the palette! My favorite shades have to be Dust, Buzz and Trick. There are only two matte shades, which means that sometimes I have to use another palette if I’m looking for some more matte shades to add to a look, but the ones that are available, Limit and Nooner, work really well together as transitional and crease shades so there isn’t really much of a reason as to why another palette would be needed. Fallout is really limited on the lighter shades, which is great, but as you get towards the darker side of the palette, there can be quite a bit of fallout, especially with Blackheart, a dark black shade with chunky glitter in.
Overall, I’d say this palette is definitely worth getting if you’re looking for a quality eyshadow palette, especially one with more rose gold and copper toned shades, which is going to be long lasting and really nicely blendable. I would definitely reccomend this, and now having two of the naked palettes (a review of Naked 2, my favourite autumn palette, can be found here) I’m eager to collect them all as they have such a vast shade range!
