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.
