Urban Decay is one of my favourite brands – I love its creative palettes and high quality products, but I really love its Naked collection.
The much anticipated Naked3 graced us UK folk with its presence on December 16th and I was first in line to collect, and boy am I glad I did.
Coming in a rose gold tin with an almost ruched effect (to differentiate from the Naked2 packaging), the shadows inside Naked3 are 12 never before seen shades, and who doesn’t love new ways to get Naked?
Okay smutty comments aside, Urban Decay have taken a slight risk with its third instalment of its best-selling palettes. Pink-toned eyeshadows have the somewhat potential to become unwearable as there’s a fine line between complimenting your colouring, and making you look like you’ve been crying your heart out for hours.
The previous Naked shadows were a mixture of warm browns and beiges in a variety of matte, satin and shimmer finishes, but this time, each shade has a rose gold/pink and taupe tone.
So what have we got?
There’s a mixture of glitters, shimmers, matte and satin so that a variety of looks can be created as well as offering something for everyone.
If I’m honest, I was dubious as these are colours I’ve never considered wearing. It was more about wanting to own the coveted palette – yes I’m a pathetic person. But I have to say the contents surprised me:
Strange – a pale neutral pink matte-satin
Dust – a pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter
Burnout – a light pinky-peach satin
Limit – a light dusty rose matte
Buzz – a metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter
Trick – a light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle
Nooner – a medium pinky-brown matte
Liar – a medium metallic mauve shimmer
Factory – a pinky-brown satin
Mugshot – a metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift
Darkside – a deep taupe-mauve satin
Blackheart – a smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle
Despite my pathetic need to own this palette regardless of whether its offerings are for me, I have to say I really love it. Limit and Nooner are brilliant crease colours and Liar adds a nice bit of sparkle to the lid.
Overall Urban Decay have struck (rose) gold with its latest Naked addition and it’s nice to see the same amazing quality continued without needless repetition.
Urban Decay Naked3 is £37 and available here.
