Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette Review, Swatches & FOTD


Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette


Hello my ladies,

It has just been a year that I am in the blogger circle, the pleasure to be a part of this lovely place, the pleasure to know you all, everything seems sooo pleasurable 😀 . I remember the time when I used to faint upon hearing a lipstick costing 200 rupees; I only knew Elle 18 color pops then, which was just a hundred rupees. Then things changed, and now I find myself splurging on cosmetics and makeup products like never before. Result?? I can see NAKED1, NAKED2 and NAKED 3 pallet proudly gracing my dressing table.

Being a student I really had to save each and every penny for this since months. And this March, I had this wonderful opportunity to finally have them. Sophia was taking orders for UD, MAC, NARS and many such brands which are not available in India, and I quickly placed my orders for these, NARS orgasm blush and MAC Viva Glam Rihanna.

So here is my review for Urban Decay NAKED 3 pallet.

Price: 52$ for 0.60oz..ahmm… Though I actually had to pay some more for this.

Packaging: Love at first site. The packaging is beautifully stylish. A rose old pencil box like case and waves like texture all over the lid. The color of the box represents the shades inside and it comes with a nice dual ended synthetic brush and sample primer potion of their all four formulas.

Shade wise Details : This pallet consists of rosy toned neutrals. I love the mix of mattes, satin and shimmery ones. The colors look so pretty next to each other. A very feminine pallet with pretty shades and superb texture. They blend easily and are thus easy to work with.

Starting from Left to Right:

  • Strange:  It is a very nice pinkish ivory shade which works great as a highlighter and it have a matte-satin finish. Very smooth texture and is great to work with. Stays long too.
  • Dust: A chunky metallic pink shade. Shimmery, falls out and doesn’t blend well. But it looks pretty when just dabbed lightly over other shades.
  • Burnout: A very pretty rosy champagne shade. It can be worn all over the lid or just on the inner corner for that pop. Texture is smooth, easily blendable, stays long. I love this shade.
  • Limit: This is dusky rose and is a matte one. The texture is smooth and blends easily, but true to its name, it has limited pigmentation and staying power.
  • Buzz: Rosiest of all the 12 shades. Sometimes look like a rosy taupe, sometimes a pinky rose. A shimmery shade and can be worn all over lids. Well pigmented, smooth texture and easy to apply and blend, stays long.
  • Trick:  Looks rosy gold on the pallet, but more gold on lids. Falls out and is not pigmented as the rest, but I love rosy gold on my lids. It is smooth in texture, and can be used on all over lids again.
  • Nooner: Another matte shade, it is like brownish rose, best for using in the crease. Decently pigmented and works well blending with other shades.
  • Liar:  A rosy mauvey grey. Ahhmm..that is what I feel like. A pretty unique color, can be used all over lid. Texture is smooth, no fall outs, pigmented and stays long.
  • Factory: A satin finish rosy brown. Well pigmented, smooth texture, can be used all over lids, or on crease as well. Stays long.
  • Mugshot: Silvery rosy grey. Smooth, well pigmented, satiny, stays long.
  • Darkside:- Another favorite. Rosey taupe in satin finish which is super dark and can be used on outer corners. Blends smoothly and stays long.
  • Blackheart: My most favorite. It’s a black shimmery one with hints of burgundy. A very unique shade and it really stands out in the pallet. Looks very exotic. It is incredibly pigmented and stays for hours and hours.
