Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette Review and Swatches.

Hello Everyone and a Happy New Week!!

I hope you all had a great and restful weekend. This blog post is about the most anticipated eyeshadow palette of late 2013... The URBAN DECAY NAKED 3...

I have never purchased any Urban Decay product before now.. Ask me why? I just didnt care for them  and i didnt think i could fork out 52dollars for an eyeshadow palette. Nooope! Not me...NAKED 1 & 2 came and i didnt purchase those because i didnt give into the hype but i did see a few makeup looks on instagram that had me thinking twice.

When i went online to check out the NAKED 3 .. I fell in LOVE!! I loved the array of colors this palette has to offer. Very bridal, prom like shades. If i was to describe the colors of this palette in four words, frosty,bronzey, neutral and smokey. Those are words that come to mind.

Pics Below....

Strange- Pale neutral pink matte-satin
Dust-pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter
Burnout-light pinky-peachy satin
Limit-light dusty rose matte
Buzz-metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter
Trick-light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle
Nooner-medium pinky-brown matte
Liar-medium metallic mauve shimmer
Factory-pinky-brown satin
Mugshot-metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift
Darkside-deep taupe-mave satin
Blackheart-smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle

Quick eye makeup look i did using some colors from this palette. I used:
STRANGE (brow bone)
DUST(inner lid)
BUZZ(centre lid)

PACKAGING: The packaging is very pretty and houses 12 new and unique eyeshadow colors. It  is a rosey/ bronzey case with the NAKED 3 boldly written on top. It is very sturdy and snaps tightly shut. UD threw it some free eyeshadow primers( say a weeks worth for each).. Thanks UD! I am yet to try these out.
PRODUCT: This palette is filled with 10 shimmery shades and two matte shades.  I do like that they included some matte colors for transitioning and blending but i wish they would have added more. Oh well i guess you cant have it all in one palette. I shall  not complain.There are rosey,frosty, coppery,bronzey,metal and smokey shades in this palette. This is definitely a bridal palette if you ask me. More intended for soft eye looks.
PRICE: $52 on the website. I purchased mine from Sephora for AED279. This can also be purchased in Nigeria from MYMAKEUPNG.... To Purchase click HERE.
Overall, i love this palette and i give it an A++ . I definitely need to get the Naked 1 now!! I am sold!. Does anyone have this palette, or want to get it?
Thanks for Stopping by and have a great week!
