Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette

I can already guess what you are thinking ‘not another Urban Decay Naked Palette 3’ post and you’re right but the Naked Palettes are always very exciting! I would actually go as far as saying it is in my top 5 releases of the year.

To start I need to mention that I only have the Original Naked 1 palette so I can’t compare it to the number 2 however I have lots of other Urban Decay Palettes as they are my favourite palettes!

The first thing you may realise is the packaging, it comes in an almost rose gold lightweight tin which means it closes securely and is perfect to travel with. In the box you also receive four different colour samples of the primer potion which is always nice as well as receiving a great double ended brush in the tin to get you started with all the shadows.

The palette comes with a nice big mirror and 12 eyeshadows ranging from matte to shimmery finish which are all new colours and exclusive to this palette. The eyeshadows in this palette all have a rose gold/pinky tone to them

The palette has a amazing pale neutral cream colour called Strange perfect from highlighting as well as great lid and crease colours. The last four shades really make me love this palette, they allow you to achieve a perfect smokey eye and not just day looks.

In the past I’ve struggled with some of my earlier Urban Decay Palettes because of fall out but there isn’t too much glitter in this palette although I did get a little from Dust as it has some micro glitter.

I actually think that I prefer the this palette to the Original although I am a little worried I only think that because it is new and exciting but I will confirm that in a few months time. It’s got a very romantic soft tone to it in my opinion and even a smokey eye could look quite pretty and not too over done.

I’ve asked for the Naked 2 for Christmas and will do a big comparison if I am lucky enough to receive it (if not I will be purchasing it anyway). I think the Naked 3 is different enough from the 1 to justify having and would work very well on most skin tones but particularly those with pink undertones looking to achieve a ‘naked eyeshadow’ look.

The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette is a great price at £37 as you do get such a great range of shades! It is available from any good Urban Decay counter and online at and .

    I did a post on this a few days ago, I absolutely love it but you're right I also need a few months to have a play around with it before a full verdict, great blog! x

    I really want to get my hands on this palette, so I guess I'd better start queueing for it! Great review, thanks for the swatches!

      That's why I feel I've never got the Naked 2 but I need to finish the family off now!

    I wasnt too phased about this palette when it was first announced. I have the first Naked palette but didnt feel i needed to get 2. However after seeing swatches of Naked 3 on various blogs I am warming to it and kinda want to to get it!

      Haha that's the problem with seeing it on other people, it always makes me feel like I need it! Maybe worth having a look at in store XX

    I just got this last week, and I only wore it a few times, but I love this so much! The past few months, I've been obsessed with eye shadows and I have the Naked Basic palette, but this is my first ever full size palette from Urban Decay. This is so romantic and beautiful, and it makes me feel so girlie! Before, I didn't feel like I needed the other two palettes, but after trying and loving the Naked Basic and Naked 3, I kinda want them!

    Your eyes look amazing here, definitely tempted to buy the Naked 3 palette as I love all the colours! X

    The look is amazing on you! I think the first is a nice one for my warm skin tone, do you think this would work for them too? I love micro glitter – it's like glitter without the mess, and not chunky!
    Hope you get the Naked 2 for xmas! Happy Holidays!

    Oh my god you are absolutely Beautiful!!! The eye shadows suit you so well and have I mentioned how pretty you are???? Haha but no I'm glad you've reviewed it, it's good to see photos from somebody who actually owns the eyeshadows as I've seen way to many stock photos and I'm not a big fan of that kind of post so great job! I'll need to save up for this but I can't wait to add it to my collection. The only naked palette where I'll use all the colors!! 🙂

    Awww…you are so pretty. Love the colors that you have used. This naked 3 is worth trying. I will def check on this…

  12. 19th December 2013 / 2:33 pm

    I have the original one, couldn'T care less about the second though! But because I love pink, and I think it suits brown eyes really well, I probably will buy the third one once my budget allows 😉

    Lovely review! I've been considering trying this for a while but was a little unsure whether it was worth all the hype, but again, it does sound like a good little product from your review. Might have to brave the sale shoppers and head into town! 🙂 x
