Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette Review

Hello Beauty Junkies, so it was my birthday on the 30th August I turned 25! As a result I received some brilliant make up / beauty gifts from my fiancĂ© which means I can now finally get back to my reviews on my blog. For the past few months I have not had enough money to spend on make up - which is devastating. However, I am now back with plenty of new items which I hope to review in the next few months. 

The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette can be purchase from Debenhams for £37. It comes complete with the palette, a duo ended makeup brush and a free sample of Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I currently only have the Urban Decay Naked palette - which is the original palette and contains a number of neutral shades in different finishes. I mainly used the light shades in this palette and loved the rose tones. Therefore I chose to jump straight to the Naked 3 and skip the Naked 2. I felt that the Naked 2 contained very similar colours to the Naked palette and I wanted something different. 

This palette contains 12 completely new shades of eyeshadows. All of these eyeshadows are in the rose gold family - which really appealed to me as these tones tend to suit my skin tone perfectly.

I absolutely love this packaging - it is practical and pretty! After struggling with the Naked palette whilst travelling for years (having to tie hair bands to the ends to stop the case coming open) finally I have a good palette which closes effectively and will travel well.

The case reminds me somewhat of a tin pencil case that you used to use at school - but it is beautiful. It has a deep rose tone case with a wavy design and gold lettering. Inside there is a huge mirror which will be perfect for travelling.


Strange -  Matte creamy vanilla shade, perfect for highlighting and using in the inner corners of your eyes.

Dust - Glittery pale pink shade with silver glitter - this has very good pigmentation and is almost fairy like in shade :)
Burnout - Pearl light peachy pink tone.
Limit - Matte light neutral dusty rose colour, perfect for use in the crease.

Buzz - Glittery medium pink with purple undertones and silver glitter.

Trick - Glittery warm peachy copper with gold glitter.
Nooner - Matte medium dusty rose tone, another tone perfect for use in the crease.
Liar - Pearl warm brown with with frosted mauve overlay.

Factory - Pearl medium to deep brown.

Mugshot - Pearl medium taupe.
Darkside - Matte deep brown with slight pearl sheen.
Blackheart - Glittery blackened purple base with red glitters.

The Glittery shades are better when used wet - this shows the pigmentation at its fullest and helps to reduce the amount of fallout.

The pearl shades can also be used wet to highlight the pearlescent sheen.

The matte shade Limit and Nooner are both brilliant matte colours for use in the crease however, they do require building up.


I think the price of this palette is spot on for the amount of shades and the quality of eyeshadows that you receive. I also love the fact that the packaging feels more substantial for your money than the Naked palette and the large mirror and duo ended make up brush that comes with it makes it a bargain at £37.


I absolutely love this Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and would recommend this to anyone who loves rose gold tone eyeshadows. It is the perfect addition to my eyeshadows and I have not stopped using this since I received it. If you would like 12 completely new Urban Decay shades all in the rose gold family and all of good quality then I would highly recommend this palette to you.

I have created numerous looks with this palette already and know that it will be used excessively. 

I like the fact that this palette comes complete with a duo ended make up brush and cant wait to use the free samples :)

Thanks :)

  1. Great review! Love the detail you've gone into - super helpful :) I only have the original Naked palette at the moment but will hopefully be saving to get the 2 or 3! xx

    1. Hi Emily thank you so much for your kind words - I highly recommend the Naked 3 palette. The next one on my list is the Naked Basics as it looks like a really good basic eye palette :)
