Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability.'
Hey! So, my Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay has arrived. When I heard it was coming out, I knew I had to have it in my collection of all 3 naked palettes (obsessed? I think so). I was excited to try it out because it seemed like the colours were everything I'd look for in a neutral palette, more so than the Naked 1 & 2 which I use religiously. The rose gold theme of the palette is also going to be perfect for the Christmas party season!
I'm really happy with the never-before-seen new colours in the palette. I love that there is a range of light shimmer shades but also matte colours which are perfect for blending in the crease. There is also a couple of dark colours which are good for transitioning from everyday makeup into an effortless night time look. The shadows appear to give a much more velvety and smooth finish on the lid, with barely any fall out. All colours blend well with each other and are easy to work with the double-ended shadow brush that comes free in the set.
It was also a nice surprise that the palette came with 4 large samples of the Urban Decay Primer Potion in sin, eden, anti-ageing and original. I've had the original primer potion a few times before and swear by it when wanting your eye makeup to have longer staying power!
I've noticed there has been some speculation about whether the palette is worth buying and if the colours are actually any different to Naked 1 and 2. The colours are similar in the sense that they are all neutral, however I notice the differences in the palettes hugely ranging from quality, colour and overall finish. Urban Decay never fails to impress me with their Naked collection, love it!
