You know when you come across something that makes you think, do I really need this? This was that. I’ve always been curious about the Naked Palettes and it’s definitely something I have wanted to buy for a very long time now! Ever since I started blogging in fact.

Eye Shadow Palette: Urban Decay Naked 3  c/o
I say curious because these palettes are filled with nude shades and it really got me thinking, do I need “nude” shades in my make-up collection and what purpose would these serve. Some of you might find this slightly confusing, but for me, I keep make-up pretty simple and don’t normally branch out much into eye shadows for day wear. Don’t get me wrong I wear eye shadow during the evening, but mornings are pretty rushed so normally my make-up routine is simple. I hate to admit this but this palette really has changed my views, and in complete dismay I have found myself obsessed with this particular palette that I know want more!! I totally understand peoples rave reviews on this wonder palette now, and can see what they mean and the amount of hype these palettes receive in the blogger/YouTube world. I wouldn’t think twice about the price of these palettes now, and would definitely splash out on the other two to complete the collection. The beautiful rose gold casing really compliments each rose-hued neutral in this Urban Decay palette, from pale shimmery pinks in all kinds of different tones, from light to dark, to pretty gold’s and warm browns, finished with the darkest shade of them all, black heart with gorgeous red micro-glitter. 
The great thing about this palette is the balance between mattes and shimmers, making this a beautiful palette to blend with, to create different textures and shades. Blackheart is the deepest black shade in this palette laced with tiny red micro-glitter in a gorgeous matte, perfect for applying to the outer crease of the eye for a beautiful daytime look mixed with neutral pinks to the lid. Blackheart would also come in perfect for a deep smokey evening make-up look applied to the whole lid with a flick of liquid eyeliner. You can blend these shades or use them singularly, giving each one a multipurpose use that you can really get creative with for your desired outcome. Strange is my favourite shade for applying to the inner lid and brow bone to really open my eyes and create a nice eyebrow shape during the day, alongside other neutral tones. My favourite daytime look is a mixture of ‘Dust, buzz, and trick’ such a beautiful combination and the shimmer really opens my eyes, but it’s nothing over the top for daytime wear. The mixture of pearls, mattes and metallic’s really make this palette great for playing around with and creating countless effects, that you can always switch up depending on the occasion. 
The blending ability of these really is something else and not only do they blend like a dream but they also have serious staying power! Sometimes I don’t even need a primer when using these and it lasts a good 4-5 hours before creasing, but if you want the full effects I would highly recommend using a primer beforehand. Using primer you could see this lasting around 8-10 hours, this is the most it has lasted on me and my eye lids can be pretty oily. Each shade has a light velvety texture with rich colour pay off when applied to the lid, you also get a pretty rose gold brush included in the set, and of course the primer samples. You get the option of four primer samples, but I used them all apart from sin as this was a little too dark. The palette is everything I imagined and more and it’s got me really excited to try the other ones from the collection now and I just can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get my hands on one of these babies, so a huge thanks to Debenhams for including this in my Christmas hamper last month as part of the “Found It” campaign.
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas and enjoying the holidays! 🙂 
xo, Jenny

    I feel like the only blogger who doesn’t own a naked palette! My sister received this for christmas too so I’ll have a proper look in a bit! x

    I am right there with you, confused but curious of the hype. Coincidently, I recently just purchased the Naked 3 as well and fell in love. This beautiful palette is my go to because it looks lovely with my skin tone and hair, fellow red head! Also, it last so well through out the day with the primer. I’ve definitely been converted. Now the Naked on the Run has my eye for an easy travel all-in-one…. so tempted!



    • Jenny says:

      It’s just beautiful :’) really happy you caved and bought it too! And it goes brilliant with red hair doesn’t it? it really brings out my eyes and warms my complexion as my hairs not naturally red but my skins very pale 😛 I will need to check this out as it would be nice to get a travel size case as the palette is on the large side and i’d hate to drop or misplace the palette or have the eyeshadows crumble! I have dropped lots of palettes before in my lifetime and the powders just turn to dist or crumble up into a right mess 🙁 making it hard to use them again :'( xx

    • Jenny says:

      Aww I think these palettes go on sale but not sure as they are expensive! But I can tell you it’s worth saving up and buying as you wont want to use any other shadows 🙂 they colour pay off its gorgeous and lasts hours without primer and doesn’t crease as much as regular shadows, and thanks so much for the kind words 🙂 x

  7. Great post….love the colors!

    P.S Thanks a lot for visiting my blog and for lovely comments…new post is live 😉

    I’m like you in wearing fairly neutral makeup during the day and only bringing out eyeshadow at night. I recently bought a W7 palette, although the Naked 3 has always been high on my beauty wish list. This review was really thorough and I know now that I’m right for keeping the palette on my wish list – staying power is a must and I love the idea of being easy to blend 🙂



    • Jenny says:

      Thanks so much for the kind words 🙂 and this has ultimate staying power! Compared to other shadows x

    Very nice review. I’ve got the Naked 2 pallette and I was thinking the same, did I need nudes in my collection? But I was pleasantly surprised and I reallylove it. I even did a review on it a while back. Anyway great review and nice blog.


    • Jenny says:

      Thanks Jess 🙂 its nice to meet other people who think the same and feel if its totally worth the spend for daily use but honestly I cant live without this palette now 🙂 really eager to try the other ones too! x

  12. I have some Naked2 palette (idk I don’t really know much about these things) and I love it 🙂 even though I don’t use it often when I do I feel really good.
    Xx, Carade

    • Jenny says:

      I was like you, not really into eyeshadow and just stuck to the basics for everyday wear but honestly this has completely changed my opinion! I haven’t stopped using it and I love how the colours are subtle but really bring out my eyes x

  13. El Willmer says:

    I got this palette for Christmas! I think quite a few people might have done! It is such a gorgeous palette 🙂


    • Jenny says:

      Lucky you! Hope you love it as much as I do 🙂 and definitely I think this would be the main Xmas present this year and I can totally see why 😀 x

    • Jenny says:

      Aww I need to get this 🙂 I will wait it out and buy the other two when this one is finish 😉 cant wait to try them all, super expensive but I think its totally worth it compared to buying the shades individually x
