Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette ($52.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows, each 0.05 oz. (equivalent of a full-sized eyeshadow), in hues of pink and brown. It also includes a dual-ended eye brush, and a week’s worth of samples of each of their primers. The case is a rose gold metal with “waves” indented across the exterior.  Overall, it’s a really lovely palette filled with eyeshadows that are highly pigmented, soft, blendable, and easy to use.  With ten of the twelve, they wore well for just over eight hours without fading or creasing.  Darkside was my favorite shade, as it was somewhat unusual, and it wasn’t too frosted.  Dust was the worst performer, which isn’t unexpected, as it has a fair amount of glitter, which makes the texture less smooth and results in fall out during wear.  Trick had minor fall out during wear, but it applied better and had more color payoff.

It is now available at urbandecay.com! 🙂

Comparisons to Naked 1 and Naked 2 can be found here!

Strange is described as a “pale neutral pink matte-satin.” It’s a pale, neutral-to-warm white-pink with a satin matte finish. It had really good color payoff, and the texture was soft and finely-milled–a very, very smidgen powdery if I’m being nitpicky as a little goes a long way. Too Faced Powdered Sugar (LE) is similar. Tom Ford Beauty In the Pink #1 (LE) is similar. LORAC Light Pink (P) is pinker. MAC Pen ‘n’ Pink (P, $15.00) is darker. Chanel Variation #1 (P) is cooler-toned.

Dust is described as a “pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a white and gold micro-glitter. The texture is a little powdery and glittery, so it feels looser; it’s a shade I would apply with a dampened brush to minimize fall out and to help it apply more smoothly. I had noticeable fall out with this shade. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #12 (P, $9.99) is darker. Chanel Pink Lagoon (LE, $34.00) is warmer, cream product. Urban Decay Scratch (P, $18.00) is darker.

Chanel Abstraction (LE, $36.00) is a cream product. Inglot #399 (P, $6.00) is darker, less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

Trick is described as a “light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle.” It’s a medium copper with brownish tones and a gold sparkles over a frost finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture though sparkly, was soft and buttery and applied smoothly overall. Dior Meteore (661) (P, $30.00) is a cream product.

Inglot #344 (P, $6.00) is browner. See comparison swatches.

Liar is described as a “medium metallic mauve shimmer.” It’s a medium brown with subtle warm undertones and a slightly gray-ish cast on top. It had a very frosted, almost metallic, finish. The texture was incredibly soft, leaning towards a little powdery, but very pigmented. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P) is less frosted, yellower in tone. Too Faced Crisp Apple Strudel (LE) is more golden. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is darker. LORAC Pewter (P) is darker.MAC Smokeluxe #3 (P) is similar. Disney by Sephora Chateau (LE) is similar.

  • Blackheart is a deep, dark purpled black with burgundy sparkle. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke, but it is buildable to more opaque color in two to three layers. It wore well for eight hours on me with slight thinning apparent after nine hours. MAC Strong Willed (P, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Dark Diversion (LE, $16.00) has no sparkle.Bobbi Brown Black Plum (P, $24.00) is lighter, less sparkle.See comparison swatches.

It was semi-sheer when applied in a single stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage with two to three layers. It wore well for eight hours and was slightly faded after that. MAC Strong Willed (P, $20.00) is purpler. MAC Raven (LE, $16.00) is similar. bareMinerals 6AM (LE, $15.00) is slightly more plum. See comparison swatches.

Crave + Venus 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil ($16.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “deepest, darkest brown-black matte + soft, off-white shimmer.”

Perversion + Pistol 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil ($16.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “blackest-black matte + light gray-brown shimmer.”

  • Perversion is a deep, dark black with a matte finish. It’s incredibly pigmented, very creamy, and wears eight to nine hours on me. This is part of the permanent range and has been reviewed previously. See comparison swatches.
  • Pistol is a golden taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had fairly good color payoff in a single stroke, and it was buildable in two layers to fully opaque color. It lasted eight hours on me before starting to show signs of fading. MAC Deliciously Rich (LE, $16.00) is warmer, more golden/brown. Urban Decay Mushroom (P, $19.00) is grayer. See comparison swatches.

Zero + Whiskey 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil ($16.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “Zealous black cream + rich brown matte.”

  • Zero is a medium-dark black with a matte finish. This is part of the permanent range. It has so-so color payoff in a single pass, but it is buildable to mostly opaque color. It wears eight hours on me without signs of fading. See comparison swatches.
  • Whiskey is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with a mostly matte finish and warm, orange-red undertones. It’s part of the permanent range as well. It has decent color payoff and builds to opaque color in two layers. It wears just over eight hours on me. Laura Mercier Espresso (P, $24.00) is darker. NARS Via de Martelli (P, $24.00) is similar. Urban Decay Roach (P, $19.00) is shimmery. MAC Duck (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Rich Ground (P, $16.00) is metallic. See comparison swatches.

Now, the one bummer is that currently, the Zero + Whiskey pencil on Urban Decay’s website (that’s been there for awhile) is $12, and these are listed as $16 in the press release–same amount of product.

Urban Decay Zodiac & Blackheart Nail Colors

Urban Decay Zodiac Nail Color
Urban Decay Zodiac Nail Color

Urban Decay Zodiac Nail Color ($15.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is described as a “smoky green with gold, green and blue 3-D micro-glitter.” It’s a deep, dark forest green with flecks of blue, chartreuse, and emerald green shimmer and micro-glitter. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but you might do a third to get a really rich, inky color. The consistency was slightly on the thicker side, but it didn’t pool along the edges and dry down was average to slightly quicker than average. It dried to a nice, shiny finish and could be worn without a top coat if desired. Zoya Chita (P, $8.00) has a totally different texture and is lighter. NARS Night Porter (LE, $19.00) is a bit darker, but the composition is similar, though the sparkle seemed finer in it. China Glaze Glittering Garland (LE, $8.00) is brighter, warmer, with predominantly green micro-glitter. Zoya Logan (P, $8.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Blackheart Nail Color ($15.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is described as a “smoky greige with red and multicolored shimmer.” It’s a deepened, dark brown with warm, caramel undertones and shimmer that shifts from a warm, golden bronze to a coppery red. The shimmer was very, very fine. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it was opaque after two coats. It dried down a bit faster than average, and the finish was moderately shiny without a top coat. Urban Decay Barlust (LE) is darker, has different color shimmer. Dior Exquis (LE, $24.00) is warmer, lighter, less shimmer-shift. Rescue Beauty Lounge Ghost (LE, $20.00) is darker, more bronze. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Launches for Holiday 2013
Urban Decay Launches for Holiday 2013

24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil ($16.00)

When we first introduced our original Naked palette, we created a Double-Ended Eye Pencil to go with it. Eventually, we loaded the palette with a brush instead, but people BEGGED us to sell the pencil on its own. It’s been so popular that we’re launching that original duo (Zero/Whiskey) as a regular part of our line AND adding three new color combos—one for each of our other Naked palettes. Looking for the perfect eye pencils to pair with all those gorgeous neutrals in our Naked palettes? You’re in luck. Urban Decay launches FOUR Naked 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencils. Designed to pair perfectly with our Naked palettes, these pencils are the ideal go-to to complete any Naked eye look. Each pencil includes two versatile liner shades inspired by its namesake palette. Three of the eight shades in the lineup are all-time bestsellers, and the other five are NEW and exclusive!

  • Zero + Whiskey Zealous black cream + rich brown matte coordinates with Naked
  • Perversion + Pistol Blackest-black matte + light gray-brown shimmer coordinates with Naked2
  • Blackheart + Darkside Smoky black matte with rosy red micro-glitter + purple-taupe satin coordinates with Naked3
  • Crave + Venus Deepest, darkest brown-black matte + soft, off-white shimmer coordinates with Naked Basics

5 Must-Have Urban Decay Products

I’m a long-time fan of Urban Decay, and so I’m sure none of these will come as a surprise from me!

  1. Eyeshadow — soft, buttery, pigmented, and silky-smooth–that’s the formula overall! The only ones I’m not keen on are the ones with micro-glitter.
  2. 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil — one of the most comfortable lip liners on the market and has a large shade range
  3. Revolution Lipstick — richly pigmented, hydrating, comfortable to wear lip color
  4. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils — a favorite for years, I love the variety, consistency, and long-wear–now if only they’d bring back Honey
  5. Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color — rich, decadent lip color with a glossy finish; Scandal is a must-have
