Ever been afraid of using pink eyeshadow for fear of looking like you've got pink eye? The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette gives you the chance of wearing the beautiful feminine shade without the social misconceptions!
Being a fan of the original Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette, I jumped at the chance to get a hold of the 3rd installment of Urban Decay's palette series. The Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette is a pink and rose-theme of neutral shades that looks promising for the majority of skintones. Keep reading for more photos and swatches!
The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette has 12 eyeshadows with varied matte, satin and shimmer finishes. It is housed in a somewhat clunky metal palette, I much preferred the velvet-coated cardboard original as it felt better and more solid in quality. This comes with a dual ended brush (pictured), which is somewhat useful on the go, but I still prefer my own picks for eyeshadow application. It was also advertised to contain samples of the much loved UD eyeshadow bases, but to my dismay I found sachets of eyeshadow base testers (come on UD - sachets - really?). Previous releases contained mini versions of the actual eyeshadow bases.
I suppose those can be seen as minor prints as the main attraction here are the eyeshadows themselves. Lets get on to the individual shades!
- Strange is a satin dusty white colour that's so-so for pigmentation. It is great on the browbone to blend out any harsh lines from the crease shadow. It is a good subtle highlight.
- Dust is a glittery shimmery light yellow pink. This is a beautiful shade for the eyelids.
- Burnout is a shimmery yellow pink. A little less glittery than dust.
- Limit is a pinkish neutral nude. This makes for a great crease colour.
- Buzz is a glittery rose gold.
- Trick is a shimmery tanned gold.
- Nooner is a pinkish neutral, a shade darker than Limit.
- Liar is a frosty pink-brown.
- Factory is a shimmery pinkish brown.
- Mugshot is a frosty golden taupe.
- Darkside is a shimmery brown-grey.
- Blackheart is a very dark brown base with red sparkles - they don't translate well when swatched, but will probably stand out more on top of a black base.
