Urban Decay Naked3 Palette | Some Type of Beauty

Review: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

Naked3 Palette by Urban Decay is a collection of rose-hued neutral eye shadows that come in a mirrored compact with a double-ended brush. The shades range from pale pink to a deep black infused with red shimmer. It is the third product in the brand's famous Naked line.

The Buzz

Urban Decay is known for really bold, pigmented colors. The first two Naked palettes have a very loyal and dedicated following, but reviews are a little more mixed with the Naked3. Some customers love the array of soft, natural colors, while others have found that the quality is not what they've come to expect from the brand.

First Impressions

I went with this Urban Decay palette instead of the other two variations because I love the rose-hued colors. The Urban Decay Naked and Naked2 palettes are better at achieving a traditional smokey eye. The Naked3 gives you a more natural, sun-kissed look that is perfect for this spring season. What I will say is that this palette doesn't seem to be as pigmented as some of the others, though that may just be the nature of the softer colors. The quick fix for that is to add a little water to your brush before applying the shadow.

My Obsessions

My Critiques

The Verdict

When I buy an eyeshadow palette, I buy it with the intention of using it every day. I prefer my makeup subtle, and these colors are perfectly understated for me. That being said, if you're going for a more sultry look, you should probably go with the Naked or Naked2 palette.

The Urban Decay Naked3 palette retails at Sephora for $54.
