REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette!

Hello again my lovies. I'm struggling to type this up at the moment, so I'm doing my best to make this post really great since I'M SICK AGAIN! This weather has been doing a number on my body. ^^; I'm totally feeling lethargic. Enough about me, let's get into the beauty of the Naked 3 Palette.

received this as a Christmas present from my mother. I was so looking forward to receiving this palette since we first heard there was going to be a third palette in the works. What makes me love this palette even more, is that it's based off of rose colors. I LOVE rose colored anything.

The back of the box has the description in two languages as well as what the box contains. 

" Get ready to experiment with 12 TOTALLY NEW (and insanely beautiful) rose-hued neutrals, ALL EXCLUSIVE to this set. Choose from every finish imaginable: ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics. From the palest, shimmery pink to the deepest black matte with reed micro-glitter (aptly named Blackheart), these neutrals will make you want to get Naked all over again. "

The back of the box also shows the shadows in the palette, the brush, as well as swatches of the sample Primer Potions. Each of them last for about a week of continuous use.

And of course, the Naked 3 Palette itself! The card like case next to it hold the four sample packs of the Primer Potions. I love the color of this palette so much! Such a pretty rose gold color. The ruffled look makes this palette look extra fancy. It's a metal case similar to the Naked 2, so it's quite durable.

SO PRETTY. Just like the Naked 2, this also comes with it's own mirror & eye shadow brush. The brush works well. My favorite half of this palette would definitely be the first half! Those rose tones are amazing. 

Now, I'm gonna show off each individual eye shadow in depth as well as a swatch.  Each swatch has Primer Potion under it. All descriptions are from the Urban Decay website.


Pale neutral pink matte-satin.


Pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter.


Light pinky-peach satin.


Light dusty rose matte.


Metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter.


Light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle.


Medium pinky-brown matte.


Medium metallic mauve shimmer.


Pinky-brown satin.


Metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift.


Deep taupe-mauve satin.


Smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle.

Basically, this palette is made up off pink/rosy/taupe/brown colors. Seriously up my alley. I'm more than happy to have gotten this palette.

Some of the matte colors have a bit of fallout, but the quality of all the shadows are amazing. That's really all the "negative" things I have to say about this palette. It's literally perfect in my eyes. Urban Decay couldn't have chosen a better color to go with.


I can definitely see myself using this much more often than other palettes I have.

I actually went ahead & used most of the colors to create this eye look. If you want a tutorial, I'll try to remember which colors I used since it's been about a week or so since I took this photo. I love the eye shadows so much! 

Hope you've enjoyed this review!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Stay warm & don't get sick!




  1. You got this!!!! I'm so jealous now! Actually I was waiting for my January allowance so I could get this but unfortunately it's sold out in Sephora. T__T
    Anyway, I love this review. Thanks for swatching them!!
    I would love to see your tutorial. Eat your meds and take care!

    1. Buy it directly from Urban Decay if they are still sold out by the time you get allowance. I'm glad you enjoyed the review! I'll be sure to get that tutorial going as soon as I can! & I'm living off meds, lol. :)
      Thanks for reading! <3

  2. I envy you so much for having this palette! I really want to have this too, I love the colors with the pinkish tone a lot >~< But it's not available in my country qq Anyways, thank you for this review, it's really detailed and helpful. thanks for the swatches! I would love to see a tutorial on your eye make up ^w^
    PS: Get well soon~!!


    1. Awe no, there must be a way you can get this! I think the colors of this palette are 10 times better than the other two. I have a thing for pinks. I'm glad you enjoyed the review. Will do a tutorial! & thank you, I'll try my best to get better!
      Thanks for reading! <3

  3. Aww my poor bb is sick :( get well soon but on another note, the palette is definitely everyone's favorite and the colors look beautiful! I love the darkest tone (as expected) haha but the light shimmery tones are perfect too, and I absolutely love the look you create with this palette. It's just pretty and gorgeous and I don't know maybe I don't see you much with eye shadow before? Haha but love it! You should make a tutorial ^^

    1. I swear I'm always sick sis. I'll get better as fast as I can. I knew you would love the darker tone. I even love the darker tone here. I don't normally wear a lot of eye shadow, especially during the week when I work since it takes too much time for me to do. I literally only wear eye makeup when I have to ( I wish I had more time! ) I'll definitely do a tutorial using this palette.
      Thanks for reading darling! <3

  4. I still like the second palette more than this one since I'm not too big a fan of rosy shadows. :'c Though it does look quality!
    Thank you for the review! <3

    1. I like the second one, too. All Urban Decay products have such great quality. Thanks for reading darling! <3
