Urban Decay Naked 3 Review

Urban Decay Naked 3

When Urban Decay Naked 3 was announced last month we could practically hear the squeals of excitement across the world! So when we managed to get our hands on the coveted palette we knew we were in for a treat. The most recent addition to the Naked Collection is a mouthwatering eyeshadow palette featuring a dozen shades from rose gold to satin mauve, which are perfect for day to evening looks. But what sets this apart from from its predecessors? We put it under the beauty microscope…


Urban Decay Naked 3

Never judge a book by its cover, but the Naked 3 Palette is a thing of beauty. The rose gold tin means you will recognise it in a sea of palettes, and it’s very sturdy, which means you can throw it in your bag to get ready whilst on the go. Open it up to reveal a large mirror, the 12 eyeshadows and a double ended brush. Absolute perfection.

So, onto the swatches…

A pale pink matte which is perfect for highlighting under the brow or on the inner corners of the eyes.

This pink glittery shimmer shade can be used for a glamourous evening look, all across the lid or as a highlight for a smokey eye.

The second of the matte shades, this is a dusty rose pink which can be used to define the crease for a daytime look.

A metallic rose glittery shimmer, which gives a foil effect like a pressed pigment would when used.

This metallic hue is more coppery than rose, giving a warmth to your makeup look.

A medium pink-brown matte eyeshadow which can be used as a base for a deep smokey eye or to define the crease.

This mauve metallic shimmer has a pinky-golden undertone and is perfect for a subtle smokey eye.

A metallic taupe shimmer with a hint of rose gold. The golden undertone means this can easily be applied as-is on the entire lid with nothing more.

We’re sure this deep mauvy-taupe satin hue will be the go-to smokey eye shade this season!

This deep matte black shade is laced with a pinky-red sparkle, which is perfect for an evening makeup look.

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
