The fourth installment of the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes has arrived, and it is the gorgeous Naked 3 Palette. This palette contains 12, never before seen rose toned neutral shadows with a mixture of finishes.
The Naked 3 Palette has similar packaging to the Naked 2 Palette. It is packaged in a textured rosy tan tin package that securely snaps closed. The palette also has a large mirror, covering the entire lid of the palette when opened. In addition to the 12 shadows in the palette, Naked 3 comes with a double ended brush and a Primer Potion Sample Card.
Consistant with Naked & Naked 2, the first six shadow of Naked 3 are the lighest. The light shadows in Naked 3 are Strange, a matte light pink ivory, Dust, a very glittery light pink, Burnout, a warm pink with a sheen, Limit, a matte light pink brown, Buzz......and Trick, a warm shimmery copper.
The last six shadows of Naked 3 are the darker shades. They are Nooner, a medium pink brown, Liar..., Factory..., Mugshot.... Darkside.... and Blackheart, a matte black with pink/red glitter.
The shadows all have a soft and smooth formula in addition to their amazing pigmentation. I don't have any issues of fallout, except for the shade Dust, which has been a problem shade among many beauty bloggers. Dust is a quite glittery shade, which can be very pretty on the center of the lid, but can create fallout. There are a few close shades in Naked 3 compared to Naked, Naked 2 and the Naked Basics palette and a separate comparison post will be coming soon (and may already be up, depending on when you are reading this).
Just like in the Naked 2 Palette, the Naked 3 Palette comes with a nice double ended. Unlike the brushes commonly thrown into palettes, this one has really nice quality. The bristles are soft and do not shed. The brush in Naked 3 has a medium sized shader brush on one side and a fluffy crease/blending brush on the other. While I use this brush in combination with others while using this brush, you can create a complete look with just this brush, also making it a convenient travel companion.
Primer Potion Sample Card
The Naked 3 Palette does not come with an actual deluxe sized product sample, but it does come with a sample card of the popular Urban Decay Primer Potion, in four different kinds. This sample card contains a nice amount of the original (invisible) primer potion, Eden (nude matte), Sin (shimmery) and the new Anti Aging formula.
