Urban Decay Naked 3 Naked3 Palette – Photos, Swatches, Review

Urban Decay Naked 3

I am so excited that my online order arrived swiftly. Not that I would have driven an hour and a half to wait in line the day this arrived in stores but it is comforting to know I got it just as early! I don’t often photograph packaging when I review products but the packaging for the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette ($62 CAD/$52 US) is so beautiful it really builds the anticipation to reveal what’s inside. I am really loving the sturdy rose gold tin the Naked 3 palette is housed in. It latches securely and I know my pretty new rose hued shadows will be safe from harm inside.

While this new selection of rose toned neutrals will flatter any skin tone I feel they are especially suited to us fair of skin. The range of shades from light to dark with an impressive three matte shades means this palette offers an endless array of looks from everyday to night out.  I am really excited to see that the Naked 3 palette offers an almost matte nude shade as a base. I usually have to dig out a separate base shade when using the Naked palettes as I prefer completely matte or close to it for this purpose. I haven’t had a chance to test all these shades for wear but after swatching so far I can see only Dust and Blackheart posing any issues. Dust is aptly named as this shade seems to just leave a sheer dusting of glitter on the skin. I can see it ending up all over my face. Blackheart is a stunning shade but unless patted on you lose the pretty red sparkle for the most part and end up with only a smoky black with a sparse amount of sparkle. The mattes are lovely and smooth. For the most part the shades noted as satins are really shimmers. I’m sure if you’re familiar with Urban Decay you know their satins tend to be a little more shimmery than most would consider a true satin. Darkside on the other hand is a true satin and stunning to boot. This palette is full of win for me so far!

The included shades are:

  • STRANGE – pale neutral pink matte-satin
  • DUST – pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter
  • BURNOUT – light pinky-peach satin
  • LIMIT – light dusty rose matte
  • BUZZ – metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter
  • TRICK – light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle
  • NOONER – medium pinky-brown matte
  • LIAR – medium metallic mauve shimmer
  • FACTORY – pinky-brown satin
  • MUGSHOT – metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift
  • DARKSIDE – deep taupe-mauve satin
  • BLACKHEART – smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle

Naked3 also includes a NEW double-ended Good Karma Shadow and Blending Brush which is really a lovely brush and great quality. It also includes an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler with resealable samples of all four formulas (original, Sin, Eden and NEW anti-aging). Each sample should have enough product to last a week.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette Available Now Online at Sephora (Canada Too!) and Ulta. Just Ordered Mine!

91900_naked3_uc 2

Woo hoo! The day has arrived! Canadians can order the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Ordering was made available a couple of weeks ago from UrbanDecay.com but they don’t ship to Canada. Since they sold old US residents have been eagerly awaiting it’s arrival online at Sephora and Ulta. I was worried it wouldn’t hit the Canadian Sephora today but it did! I quickly ordered it with my Beauty Insider $15 off gift certificate. Perfect! They of course made it impossible to find as searching Naked 3 or even Naked on Sephora comes up with nothing. It is listed as Naked3 with no space. You can find it here http://bit.ly/18d6K4R. You will have to wait another week or so to see it hit shelves in store.
