Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette // REVIEW

Before I start, sorry for the lack of posts recently! I've barely had any time to do blogging stuff, since I have been revising for my exams which are in May/June, but once they are over I will hopefully be back to normal posting times.

Even though it was launched back in late 2013, the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette is still talked about so much! Urban Decay really do make great eyeshadows, hence why it is my favourite brand for those, because they are of very high quality and there are some gorgeous shades - especially to a neutral eyeshadow fanatic like me. If you didn't know, the "Naked" line contains quite a few products, but the main focus is around the Naked eyeshadow palettes. There are three of these, aswell as the two Naked Basics palettes, all with fairly different shades!

I had only tried one Urban Decay palette in the past (Naked Basics), and I adored it, so I was pretty set on buying the Naked 3 palette once it launched! I almost bought it in January 2014, however I actually won it in a giveaway within days of telling myself to hold off buying it for a bit, so I really could not believe my luck. Obviously I was excited for the palette to arrive and get testing it out, due to the level of hype surrounding it and of course it is a very pretty palette!

Naked 3 contains twelve different eyeshadow shades - three mattes, and nine shimmers! There are six pink/rose gold toned shades, five taupe/bronze shades and then a stunning foil-like gold shade called Trick. Aswell as that, it's all wrapped up in a rose gold casing, which I think you will agree is beautiful. Like the two previous Naked palettes, this one comes with a big mirror and a brush, so it is perfect for when you are on-the-go!

All of the eyeshadows blend beautifully and most of the shades have great pigmentation, but admittedly the matte shadows' pigmentation aren't the best! This is a big shame, considering the pigmentation of the matte shadows in the Naked Basics palettes, but oh well. I'd say that the most pigmented shade is Trick which, as I said, is that foil-like gold shade, and the least is Limit, a pretty matte light pink. The lasting power of all the shades is great, and they easily last all day on my eyelids (which are on the oily side) without any creasing at all!

I really could not recommend this palette enough! It is on the pricey side at £38, but it definitely is worth the investment if you're going to use it a lot like I do. I would say to go and have a look at it in real life though, since I know those with skin on the warmer side have found that these shades sadly don't suit them too well!

What's your favourite Urban Decay palette/eyeshadow?

  13. This is the only Naked palette to have appealed to me but I still haven't got my hands on it after all this time! I think my money situation is going to improve a little over the next few months so I might just treat myself x
