Okay, I’m finally reviewing the Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette. Before you get all, “Ali, where have you been the past 3 years?!” don’t be rude! If you’ve spent any time reading my blog, you’ll notice I definitely favor drugstore makeup. They have tons of quality products for great prices, so I have trouble justifying buying most “high end” makeup items. However, my sister gave me a Sephora gift card, so I decided to splurge a bit and get this palette!
I went back and forth between all of the Naked Palettes, but after swatching all the colors, Naked 3 was the clear winner!
It’s packed with 12 amazing shadows, and I love each and every one! There isn’t a single shadow that I don’t think I’ll use! There are countless looks I can create with this palette alone from day-to-night, shimmery-to-matte, and natural-to-glamorous.
The shadows include shimmery pinks, a perfect matte highlight, neutrals, a red-toned black, and many more. I think the overall theme of the palette is rose gold (considering the beautiful packaging), and that definitely compliments my blue eyes. These shadows would be stunning with any skin or eye color though.
The shadows are very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. The palette also comes with four sample sizes of various Urban Decay eyeshadow primers. They claim each sample contains a week’s worth of uses, so you can really stretch them out.
All of the shadows are very easy to blend, and regardless of which ones you pick, they all go together nicely. I used a combination of five of the metallic and pearl shades, and I love how it turned out. Next, I definitely want to try using just the matte shadows.
If you only want to invest in one eyeshadow palette, I think this would be a good option. These eyeshadows are all exclusive to the Naked 3 palette. While the price is a little high for me, it’s a great value considering how many colors you get and what great quality they are. Plus, a nice, double-ended eyeshadow brush is included.
The hardshell packaging is great for traveling, and the exterior seems like it will be easy to clean after being toted around in my dirty makeup bag.
I’m very happy with the quality and quantity of eyeshadows in this palette, so I may be investing in more Naked palettes in the future!
Don’t worry, I’m definitely still a drugstore makeup girl at heart, but let’s just say I’ll be keeping my eye on Urban Decay from now on, too!
