Urban Decay Naked3 Palette Review

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked3

Not gonna lie, I had this bought and paid for probably 30 seconds after it went live on Urban Decay’s website the first time. The {highly coveted} Urban Decay Naked3 Palette is absolutely stunning. From the time the rumors started that Urban Decay was releasing another palette in the Naked line and that it would be rose-gold shades my heart started to flutter like a little kid on Christmas about to open the gift they’ve been waiting all year for. In all honesty, this palette is something I have been waiting my whole life for. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first Naked palette, Naked2 I could have done without, LOVED Naked Basics but still wasn’t perfect for me. I wanted something that I could use every color in and being a fair skinned (like Casper white) girl with blue eyes… rose gold shades are my BEST FRIENDS. The Urban Decay Naked3 palette does not disappoint, call it a home run, call it holy grail, call it whatever you want just go get you one! It’s currently out-of-stock from Urban Decay but you can sign up for emails for when it’s launched again && it’s currently live at Sephora right now so run and grab it because the first two launches sold out instantly and & I don’t foresee this being any different.

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

Naked3 is 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN rose -hued shades, from pale pinks to a matte black with red micro glitters that I was sort of afraid of when pictures were first released but pale ladies, fear not.. it’s perfect!  It’s nothing like Naked 1 or 2, so that’s probably why I love it so freaking much. I just can’t stop staring. Urban Decay brings us these shades in a DURABLE, gorgeous, and fun metal case with it’s own rose gold tone. As always, with all of Urban Decay shadows they’re pigmented, smooth and of fabulous quality. I’d expect nothing less from this brand but I need to say, they really shocked me quality wise from the shadows to the case they hit it out of the park! The shades are going to compliment all skin tones incredibly, there is something for everyone for sure.

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette


The first 6 shades are what sold this palette for me, if there was EVER a chance that I wouldn’t have put out the money, I couldn’t resist it because these are perfection. You can see just how pale I am, so rocking darker shades makes me look racoonish and more often then not like a prostitute so I stay very close to paler shades!

STRANGE || A pale neutral pink matte-satin that I think will be perfect for anyone to use as an inner corner & brow highlight!

DUST || A pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter. This one has major fall out issues but if you work with it and put it on top of a primer (I used lip balm) it holds it own. Fall out or not, it’s probably my favorite shade in the collection. It really makes blue eyes pop!

BURNOUT || A light pinky-peach satin, that’s so subtle it’s barely there. This is the perfect shade for a neutral everyday look, it will compliment green and brown eyes most I think.

LIMIT || A light dusty rose matte. I could not be more excited that this is a matte shade, it blends so well and seriously looks gorgeous!

BUZZ  || A metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter is going to be the perfect all over lid color for us paler gals and probably a highlight for anyone with any sort of color to them at. Unlike Dust, the glitter in this one stays where it should & I didn’t experience any fallout.

TRICK || A light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle. Ok… I know all the Naked palettes have shadows with catchy names but this for some reason is my favorite. I’m also loving the shade and from what I have seen not many others are and they think it’s falling too much onto the orange side but I feel like if you have a light hand you can get away with a nice copper shadow.

Urban Decay Naked3


The last 6 shades in the Urban Decay Naked3 palette lean toward the darker side of the spectrum but still will work for most skin tones, even in the darkest form you can rock it as a liner!

NOONER || A medium pinky-brown matte is absolutely stunning and will definitely be one of my most used shades in the palette, I’m sure.

LIAR || A medium metallic mauve shimmer. This color is super fun and will do great as crease shade for anyone!

FACTORY || A pinky-brown satin that is so pretty I can’t even stand it! I am obsessing over this shade.

MUGSHOT || metallic taupe shimmer with a slight pink shift. This baby is so rich in color and will lend itself beautifully to quite a few smokey eyes in your future.

DARKSIDE || A deep taupe-mauve satin. This one leans more towards a chocolately color and I’ll be using it as a soft liner for sure.

BLACKHEART || A smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle. I was so scared of this color like I said when I first started seeing photos of this palette but the rosy sparkle goes a long way and makes this more wearable for me.

I think it is safe to say that I am absolutely in love with the Urban Decay Naked3 palette and for fear of abusing it I think I need to get my hands on another one as a back up!! The palette also comes with a fantastic double ended brush for easy application! Like I said, you can grab it from Urban Decay (as soon as it’s back in stock, grab one from Sephora or get one in store on or about the 11th of this month!

If you’re looking for an awesome tutorial to go along with your palette, I’ve got some suggestion for you!
