Heyy Makeup Lovers!!!
I am so excited to finally have a Naked palette to write about never mind it being the Naked3. Yes me who loves Urban Decay has never own a Naked palette until now, well until Christmas Day really. Those of you who have read my past post know how sad I was when the Naked3 sold out in only a few hours of it being out on the first day. I was working at the time it came out on their web site so I was one of the many unlucky ones who didn't get to buy it so I thought. I told my boyfriend I was going to get it as soon Urban Decay gets more in stock but he tells me not to buy it, that's when I knew I was getting a Naked3 Palette for Christmas!!!
I do love this palette but it could have been a little better for it being $52.00 but what can you do, because it is still a nice palette. Not only does this palette help any makeup lover create beautiful sexy eyes for weddings, parties, and everyday life events with these pretty rose-hued neutrals but it is perfect for the blue and green eye beauty’s but anyone can rock out the color pink. I love the color pink on every eye color but it just makes green eyes pop a lot more than any other eye color.I love pink on everybody! It just one of those colors that look good on any skin tone and eye color but not everybody likes pink eye shadows, that is why I'm seeing mix’s reviews on this palette. Not everybody is a pink or rose tone kind of girl but I believe Urban Decay had to go down the pink route this time because who was going to buy a Naked3 that look almost like the last two so I believe they did a smart thing by doing something completely different. They get an A in my book for that but the reason why I don't give them a + is because two of their eye shadows have a lot of fall out and don't have a lot of pigmentation like the others. I will tell you which ones they are in the pictures down below. Also some of the colors almost look alike but they are just in different finishes or the color is just deeper than the other. Another thing I hate to say this but a lot of the colors in this palette have dupes to a lot of the drug store brands and that is kind of a little disappointed on Urban Decay because most of their eye shadows are so much more unique then a lot of the others brand. They are always making they own cool colors and putting them into fun edgy cases that never break on me which is one of the reason why I love them so much! Besides those two colors the rest of the eye shadows are really pigmented and the matte colors feel so soft when you touch them. I love the matte colors in this palette, they just add such a nice soft look to the eyes. I also love the shimmery ones to because they just add a touch of sparkle to the look. One more thing that I love about this palette is the rose-gold "art-school-inspired tin case" because not only does it look like a chocolate bar wrapper but it is one of the most sturdy and non-breakable case I have ever had. Most of the palettes I have break on me like nobody business but with this little guy I can drop it without breaking any eye shadows and it won't get crush by any of my things when I travel because it is a hard tin case. I think all eye shadows should be put into hard tin cases, what do you think? Another palette that hasn't break on my yet is the Vice 2 palette by Urban Decay, I have dropped that palette so many times that my all my eye shadows should be a shattered mess but not one of them is broken. Not one!
Over all I think this is a really good palette that just has a few flaws but what product doesn't? Nothing is perfect and imperfection is beauty so that makes this palette beautiful!
Here are what the colors look like.
The name of the colors from left to right
Blackheart(smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle)This one not very pigmented and has a lot of fallout but if you wet your eye shadow brush and then applied it to your eyes it will come out so beautiful that you won't even remember it wasn't pigmented in the first place.
Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin)
Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift)
Factory (pinky-brown satin)
Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer)
Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte) This picture doesn't sure this color justice at all because this is one of the palettes best colors.
Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle)
Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter)
Limit (light dusty rose matte
Burnout (light pinky-peach satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte)
Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter)This is the other one that has a lot of fall out to but it you just pat down the color with your finger it helps reduce fall out and the color will go on better than with an eye shadow brush. I like to add this color on top of another eye shadow because it just adds a nice pop of sparkle to the look. It is not much of a color on its own; it works better with another color.
Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin)
I hope this review help any of you that were thinking about buying the Naked3!
Have a good day or night!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover.
