Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

As you guessed from the title of this post, I've jumped on the beauty blogger bandwagon and bought the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay. As soon as I saw the swatches from this palette before it launched, I knew I wanted needed this in my life. I don't own either of the other Naked palettes even though they've been on my wish list for a long time. But now I'm pleased I've waited as Naked 3 is the perfect palette for me! 

So here you have another photo heavy blog post of the Naked 3 palette, but hey who can complain, it is beautiful after all!

I love the rose gold packaging and it's really sturdy so great for taking it away with you. I also love that you get free primer with it. I've never tried the UD primers before but again they have always been something I've wanted to try. This is ideal because I can try these out and then go and purchase my favourite!

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful all these shades are! I love the range of shades and finishes you get in the palette and that they're all really wearable. 

For those of you that haven't read the millions of posts already out there, here's a description of each colour …

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 shimmer
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 

And some swatches…

I apologise for looking blue in this photo, I think I must have been cold when taking this picture!

The only shade I'm slightly unsure about when swatched is Trick as it's quite orangey compared to the rest of the shades, but I'm hoping when used on my eyes and incorporated that I will like it a lot more! I'm going to give some different looks a go and maybe do another post on several looks I intend to create.

What do you think of the Naked 3 palette? Do you own it? What are your favourite shades and looks to create?



  1. trick is such a weird one, the name applies quite well! looks different in the pan to being swatched, as well as different on the eye every time i've used it..


    1. Yeah I think the name is perfect! I'm pleased I'm not the only one who thinks its going to be a difficult one to work with! X

  2. As much as I love this palette and the colors in it (GORGEOUS), they just don't work for me. I think I'll stick with the Naked 2!


    1. Aw that is such a shame because the colours are so lovely! But at least you've figured out what works for you :) x

  3. I really want to try this palette for myself, the colours are absolutely gorgeous! :)

    1. I would definitely recommend it! And to think you get 12 shades for £37 so that only works out at roughly £3.08! X

  4. great post sweetie. It's really help full when people do full post like this. it really helps and gives an Idea of what your really getting. you have a lovely blog and im defiantly thinking of getting this palletxxxx

    1. Aw thank you :) yeah I love looking at posts on a product before I commit to buying it myself! Aw thank you, I really appreciate the feedback on my blog and I would definitely recommend the palette to you! X

  5. I wonder which Naked palette would be best for tan skin because I want one, but now I don't know which one! Some help please?

    1. I think they're all really lovely for all skin types because you can build the colour really easy. I would recommend going to a store that has an UD counter (Debenhams & House of Fraser) and having a look at all 3 together to see which one you feel has the shades in that you would wear the most.
