What can I say about this palette! It is so beautiful. It is not as ‘naked’ as the first palette however with the colours being neutral but not so much ‘I’m not wearing any makeup’ appropriate. Some absolutely beautiful and feminine looks to be created from this palette.
Ever since I purchased this palette, I reach for it every single day. The pigmentation is fantastic, glides on smoothly, and is true to pan. The colours not only pair well together with others in the palette, but also in conjunction with other colours from other NAKED palettes. Many people call this palette (as well as other NAKED palettes) their HG for a nude eye, and it’s no wonder they do. This palette delivers! It’s also fantastic for travel because you can create a wide variety of looks without carrying half a dozen different eye products.
The only colour I had a bit of time adapting to was Dust, which has quite a fair amount of fallout. A solution that has worked for me has been to apply minimal product at a time, and patting this colour on the desired area.
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. 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.
