Naked 3- First Impressions

As soon as I saw the first photographs of Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette, I knew I'd end up getting it. I have both the original Naked palette and Naked 2 and I love them both and usually use one of them every day.

I got this on Thursday so I haven't had the chance to try it all, but so far I'm very impressed. Like the other two palettes Naked 3 does not disappoint, there are 12 brand new shades, all beautifully pigmented and easy to blend. I think the shade selection is great if you like these kinds of colours. Obviously these shades won't be for everyone, but if you like neutrals you can't go too wrong, it's such great value for money at €44.

I wasn't sure about the addition of the four Primer Potion samples but after thinking about it, it is a really good idea because it lets you try out four primers to see if you like them. I already have the Original and Sin primer potions and I love them so I'm looking forward to trying out the other two. I think it's a better idea than the lip gloss that came with Naked 2.

The packaging is very similar to Naked 2 and is sturdy and perfect for travelling. The double ended brush is again similar to the one that came with Naked 2, I personally don't use mine that often but I do really like it and as a free extra brush it's quite a good one.

I used Trick, Factory and Strange to create the look above. I plan on creating many more looks so I'll do an updated post once I've had the time to properly try out all of the shades.

Naked 3 officially launches in Ireland and the UK tomorrow, December 16th. You can find it in Debenhams or House of Fraser.

What do you think? Is Naked 3 for you?

  1. Those colours are just perfect for your eye colour Emma - gorgeous look! I am loving the palette too - way more than I expected to!

  2. I love the look you created! I'm sure all these shadows would look amazing on you - so many looks to be made :) I'm seeing this pop up more and more on my blog feeds ... it's getting very hard to resist :p Except that I couldn't get my hands on it if I wanted to - seems to be sold out online (at least those sites that ship internationally).

  3. that palette is so pretty! i love the softness of the colors. congratulations on your purchase, the colors really look superb on you. i want to buy it now. hahaha

  4. I always eye this when I am in Sephora I will have to try it out one day.

  5. This is a stunning palette, I'm so unsure as to whether to try and get hold of it or wait for the hype to die down and purchase it in a few months time. Your pictures by the way are of incredible quality, may I ask as to what camera and lens you use? Hope you don't mind!
