Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette Matte Look

Urban Decay Naked 3 1

A couple of months ago, I shared my thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. In my previous post, I mentioned that I wanted to share some looks I create using that palette, and this post is exactly that! Urban Decay Naked 3 3

I used four shades from the palette, Strange, Limit, Nooner, and Darkside. They are all matte, except for Darkside, which is a satin finish. These are the descriptions for each shadow according to Urban Decay: “Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin), Limit (light dusty rose matte), Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte), Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin).”

Urban Decay has a great eyeshadow primer, Primer Potion, that I used under these shadows. It really helps the colors pop and keeps your shadow crease-free and in place all day.

I used Limit all over my lid and as a transition shade. It’s a fabulous neutral that goes well with so many different color combinations. I blended Nooner in strategically to darken it slightly before adding Darkside in my crease. Strange is my current favorite shadow for highlighting my brow-bone. It’s perfectly bright and crisp without being shimmery or over the top.

I also used a combination of Nooner and Darkside to line my lower lash line. It’s great to line your lower lash line with corresponding shadows for a softer look than eyeliner. Urban Decay Naked 3 7

I still love the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, and I know I’ll be able to use it for so many looks in the future! The matte shades I used for this look were just as smooth and blendable as the shimmer shadows, which I really appreciated. Urban Decay Naked 3 9

If you’re looking for a great eyeshadow palette that you can use for a variety of looks, I would still happily recommend this one! Let me know if you have a favorite look with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette that I should try!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette

Naked 3 1

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!

Naked 3 2

I went back and forth between all of the Naked Palettes, but after swatching all the colors, Naked 3 was the clear winner!

Naked 3 3

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!
