Reviewing UD's Naked3 Palette. | Beauty.

Hi, everyone!
One of the first products I ever got from Urban Decay, was a present for my 16th birthday - the Naked3 palette. I am loving the palette and I've been using it every chance I get.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably already know that the Naked palettes are one of Urban Decay's most talked about products. Naked3 comes with a synthetic dual-ended eye-shadow brush, just like the Naked2 palette and it does the job perfectly. It also comes with 4 sample size Primer Potions: Original, Sin - which is shimmery, Eden - a nude matte and Anti-Aging. The packaging is very sturdy and snaps shut. Inside are 12 brand-new - highly pigmented - eye-shadows and the brush, as well as a large mirror.

As I'm fairly light-skinned for an Indian (with a slight yellowy undertone), its hard to predict whether I can pull off these types of colours but this beautiful pink-heavy palette, looks incredible and quite flattering on. Everything is Urban Decay's typically amazing quality and are all to-die-for. It probably would look more compelling on someone who has a lighter shade of skin than me but I wouldn't deny the fact that this palette would look pretty on every skin-tone. Majority of this palette will give you a pink-rosey tone to your look rather than a "naked" tone but it all depends on your colour preference.

Strange is a pale beige with a slight pinky undertone, which is matte,
Dust is a peachy pink that's very shimmery,
Burnout is a satin version of dust,
Limit is a matte pinky-taupe colour.

Buzz is a satin rose,
Trick is a satin pinky-copper shade,
Nooner is a matte taupe,
Liar is a satin mauve.

Factory is a satin brown,
Mugshot is a satin taupe,
Darkside is a satin dark taupe, edging onto black,
Blackheart is a dark brown-black with copper glitter.

If you're looking for more of the "naked" look I would highly recommend going for the first or second palette instead of this one. The first palette holds 12 gold-hued shades that are mattes, satin's and shimmers whereas the second palette includes some of the golden shades from the first but also comes with some taupe-hued shades too.

All the Naked palettes cost £38, which is a splurge if you're a teenager who doesn't earn money yet and lives off their parents, but maybe hinting it to your parents that you want it for your birthday or Christmas might help!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review. There's going to be a review on a MAC product and a Rimmel London product too so keep an eye out for that!
