I own quite a few of the Urban Decay Naked palettes and out of them all, Naked 3 usually gets the least amount of love. However, this Fall, I have been maximizing this palette and exploring all of the different shades. It adds the perfect amount of warmth to my daily Fall makeup looks.
The palette has the same metal, hard case packaging as the Naked 2 palette. However, it has a rose gold finish suitable to the shade range inside. It comes with a super handy, double-sided brush. The brush has a flat shader on one end and a fluffy blending brush, but in the shape of a shader at the other end (similar to a much more dense and shorter Mac 217).
Most of the shades have a common theme: rosey glow.
Strange is an almost-matte, creamy white.
Dust is a light pink champagne.
Burnout is an almost matte, light mauve.
Limit is a medium matte, brownish mauve.
Buzz is a medium, pink shimmer.
Trick is a bronze gold.
Nooner is a matte purple-brown.
Liar is a purple-brown shimmer.
Factory is a mauve, dark brown shimmer.
Mugshot is a darker taupe shimmer.
Darkside is an almost matte, dark grey.
Blackheart is a very dark grey with purple shimmer.
Overall, mostly all of the shadows are smooth, soft, and pigmented. I recommend pairing these shadows with a nice eye primer. I would say that Blackheart is the biggest disappointment, judging by how it looks in the pan. All of these shadows compliment each other well and really make a complete look. Sometimes I do use other matte neutrals in conjunction with this palette. If you would have asked me a month ago whether you should purchase this palette I would have suggested to do so wisely, but now I highly recommend it to mostly everyone.
