Good morning, loves. I know as I write this, many of you have heard of this product/seen reviews/own this. But it looks like I’ll be jumping on the Naked 3 bandwagon.
Color Selection: Having a mostly pink and purple color selection is brilliant. These colors are perfect for people who have to wear toned down makeup for their work or school, but are getting tired of browns. Plus there are enough dark colors in here to make a truly dramatic look if you want. Also, just look at these colors. Urban Decay has made it easy to mix and match these. You really can’t go wrong with any color combinations in this palette.
Finish Selection: The Naked palettes aren’t exactly known for having a good balance of matte and shimmer shades. It’s all shimmer all the way. That being said, there are at least two true matte shades and a couple others who have very little, insignificant shimmer.
Color Payoff: Most of these have a nice color payoff. I’m not blown out of the water, but the color payoff is good. The only dud is a light pink shimmer shade called Dust. I often find that light pink shades can lack pigmentation and alas, this was no exception
Extras: This comes with four primer samples and a double ended brush. I’m impressed with both. Usually, when a brand gives you samples, they give you just enough to use once–on half your face! The primer samples have already last me a good amount of time, more than the one week each is supposed to last. I also like the brush. Generally, I don’t use the brushes that come in makeup kits, but this one is pretty nice. The fluffy side is perfect for blending in crease colors and the smaller side makes it easy to apply eyeshadow as a liner on your bottom lash line.
So what do you think? Have you tried any of the Naked palettes? Let me know in the comments below!
