Eyeshadow palettes are becoming more and more of a staple nowadays and an easy alternative to carrying around lots of individuals in your makeup bag. I had been using the MUA neutrals palette for a long time now and thought that it was time to splurge on something more expensive.
I had heard good things about all the Naked palettes through the blogosphere and decided that the Naked 3 pallet was the better suited to my skin tone – I do love me some pinky neutrals.
Before you even get to the eyeshadows a special mention should go out to the packaging. The cute rose gold tin casing is sleek and hard wearing. Gone are the days of badly made spongy brushes – the Naked palette comes with a dual ended brush which is perfect for application and if that wasn’t enough inside is a generous sized mirror perfect for application on the go.
Inside the Naked 3 there is 12 strongly pigmented eyeshadow colours all with a rose gold tint creating a set of slightly pinker neutral browns. Including a variety of matte, satin and shimmery shades there really is something for everyone in this palette. Starting from the left is the cream colour (Strange) leading on to beige and then into slightly pinker tones and by the end of the palette you are reaching the browns and plumy colours (Blackheart).
In my opinion all the colours are completely wearable wether it be for a basic every day look or a smokey eye. My only issue with the products is that the eyeshadows do produce a lot of fall out within the palette, once on the face it isn’t an issue but the palette can get really messy with powders all over the place.
My favourite shades in the palette are :
- Buzz -As you can see I have hit serious pan on this shade. It is a perfect shimmery brown/rose shade which I wear as part of my everyday makeup routine.
- Dust – This is a perfect light pink shimmery shade.
- Limit – This is by far my favourite matte shade in the palette. This is a perfect colour to use as a base or in the crease.
- Blackheart – Whilst I haven’t used this colour as much as a I should it is a brilliant plum/black colour perfect for a smoky/dramatic eye.
At about £37 it isn’t for those after a cheap and cheerful eyeshadow palette however if you after a splurge or a treat then the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette is well worth a look.
