Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette REVIEW/SWATCHES

A makeup junkie like me can never have enough neutral eye shadows. Never! Especially, if it's from Urban Decay cosmetics. When I first heard of the Naked 3 palette, I couldn't contain myself with excitement. I love my Naked 2 and I wondered what Naked 3 had to offer. I immediately did research on the internet, and my jaw dropped when I saw what it looked like. OMG, beautiful rosy neutral eye shadows; it's probably the most beautiful eye shadow palette I've ever seen. I had to have it.

Urban Decay Naked 3 eye shadow palette $52 is the latest addition to the Naked eye shadow collection. It consist of 12 rosy neutral eye shadows in different finishes. It also comes with dual ended brush and 4 sample packet of their famous Primer Potion eye primers.

I'll do another post comparing it to Naked 2, but for now let's focus on this beautiful palette.

I love the variety of shades and finishes. It has beautiful satin and shimmers in light, medium and deep, and enough mattes to enable you to create a well balance eye makeup. The Rosy-pinky hues eye shadows usually compliments people with cool undertone, but the eye shadows can also be considered warm because of the browns in it. Either way, I think it looks great on any skin tone.

The quality of the eye shadows is undeniably amazing! The mattes, satins and shimmers are soft, finely-milled, buttery and blendable. The pigmentation is superb and a little goes a long way. They last all day with a good eye primer underneath. My favorite is Nooner, a "medium rosy brown matte". It's great blender color. I also like Blackheart, a "black matte with pink micro sparkle". It's a unique shade I don't have in my collection.

My least favorite is Dust (2nd to the left). It's quite chalky because of the chunky glitters in it, which makes it difficult to apply. I end up with a lot of fall out on my face. To make it work, I have to apply in gentle patting motion instead of sweeping across the eye lids. It's still a beautiful color though.
