|It’s finally here: the long-awaited follow-up Naked and Naked2 (two of the industry’s all-time bestselling palettes)! And this time around, we’re giving you a dozen NEW ways to get Naked. (Yes, we loaded this palette with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN shades.) Choose from every finish imaginable: ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics. From the palest, shimmery pink to deep, warm black, these neutrals will make you want to get Naked all over again. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.
Naked3 includes a NEW double-ended shadow/blending brush AND an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler with resealable samples of all four formulas (original, Sin, Eden and Anti-Aging). Each sample holds about a week’s worth of Primer! Our art-school-inspired tin case is a gorgeous rose-gold color (a subtle hint at the shades inside). Embossed on top with a big “Naked3” and cool facets that beg to be touched, it’s sure to inspire lots of jealous stares.

Urban decay Naked 3 palette has been all around the blogsphere in last few months. There’s a flood of reviews for Naked series & hence the reason I got so lazy to feature the original naked palette here! But Naked 3 is very special & priceless and I couldn’t stop myself without saying few words about it. So here’s a quick review (hopefully) on this amazing palette which is a must must & must have if you have already missed on the previous two. I have original naked also like I said & will be giving a quick snapshot of that too in coming few days but as of now lets take a look at Naked 3….. (also planning to pick up Naked 2 as well)!
Starting with the packaging………. Outstanding in a gorgeous rose gold rectangular tin palette which assembles beautiful assortment of Natural Rosy Hues to taupes/browns with some sprinkles of plums too! The shades are accompanied with dual sided good karma brush for effortless application & blending. The pack interior contains a generous sized mirror which is quiet useful for on go touch ups. I absolutely adore this over the original palettes cardboard box packaging. Though some might find it little bulky but then it assures that sturdy & safe feel for me whenever I am carrying it. You also get good sized samples of each of their Primer Potion (original, Sin, Eden and Anti-Aging) which makes it a fantastic deal. The samples are good enough for a week’s usage per formula.
STRANGE : (Satin)– A pale whitish pink with satin matte finish which makes up for a good highlighter on my NC42 skintone. My medium-dark skintone doesn’t catch up neutral warm pinkish hue here & the shade appears like a plain highlighter. It has got supremely soft & smooth texture with excellent color pay off.
DUST: (Shimmer)– A mid toned pink with liberal dose glitters! Though UD calls them iridescent micro-glitter, are too sparkly for my liking. The look more of disco glitters. The texture is smooth & soft but the chunky glitters kicks in little bit of powdery-ness. I experienced considerable amount of fall of glitter fall out with the shade. Also it was little effort to blend it out.
BURNOUT : (Satin)– A light Peachy Pink with peal finish. It has got extremely soft texture with excellent colour pay off sans any powdery-ness or fall out. The shade leans more towards cooler side of the spectrum.
LIMIT: (Matte)– described bang on by brand- a Dusty Rose with slight hint of plum. The texture is smooth & soft with good colour pay off.
BUZZ: (Shimmer)– A satiny Metallic Rose with loads of silver shimmers. Unlike Dust, the shade has got a buttery soft texture with excellent pigmentation & colour pay off sans any noticeable fall out.
TRICK: (Shimmer)– A mid toned copper with golden shimmer. This also has buttery smooth texture with top notch pigmentation & colour pay off sans any glaring fall out.
NOONER: (Matte)– A neutral matte Plummy Rose with soft & smooth texture and good pigmentation. I mostly love to use this for blending out shades in the crease or defining the crease.
LIAR: (Shimmer)– A neutral Mauve- Pink with iridescent shimmer having a metallic finish. It has got buttery soft texture with amazing pigmentation & colour pay off sans any fall out.
FACTORY: (Satin)– A mid toned chocolate brown with pearl finish. The formula again is top notch with buttery texture & supreme pigmentation/ colour pay off.
MUGSHOT: (Shimmer)– A mid toned warm Taupe with metallic finish. The formula again is top notch with buttery texture & supreme pigmentation/ colour pay off.
DARKSIDE: (Satin)– A deep Mauve Taupe with high frost metallic finish. This also has buttery smooth texture with top notch pigmentation & colour pay off.
BLACKHEART: (Shimmer)– Matte Dark Chocolate with copper glitters. It also has extremely soft & smooth texture with fantastic pigmentation & colour pay off.
All the formulas (satin, matte & shimmers) have got excellent texture, pigmentation & longevity. They are super workable for effortless & smooth application and blending. Shimmers might have some negligible fall out (barely there) except for Dust which is the only problematic child in the whole palette. It gives huge fallout & hard time for application & blending.
The palette does hold some reservations for warm tones especially the first half where the shades are little tricky to carry (on warmer tones, though not in a sense that are not wearable. They look equally stunning on warmer toned depending on how beautifully one pairs them) while the latter half opens the door for some stunning taupes & browns which is a huge respite. Contrary paler beauties can enjoy the breezy pinks & spiced up browns here in a single consolidated palette unlike the previous versions which were concentrated completely towards neutral brown hues.
Overall this is a fantastic palette which balances beautifully on spectrum without favouring any one side! The add ons with the palette makes it complete worth.
A must have! With some stunning shades packed with fabulous formula is completely worth.
