Urban Decay: Naked Palette 3 Review

A truly unique colour palette to this day, the plethora of rose – gold tones opens up the opportunity to many different looks.  The Urban Decay 3 palette is made up of beautiful romantic, feminine shades.Whilst, the palette is lacking in matte transition colours it still has the ability to create a broad range of complete looks.


This natural tone palette is broken up into much lighter shades for classic pinky gold looks and then some stunning deeper shades to smoke out and add depth to these looks.

I have broken the palette swatches into the light shades and darker shades to take a closer look:


Strange – “a pale neutral pink matte-satin”.  (hard to photograph but perfect for setting a cut crease or brow bone)

Dust – “pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter”.

Burnout – “light pinky-peach satin.”

Limit – “light dusty rose matte”.

Buzz – “metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter”.

Trick – “light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle“.


Nooner – “medium pinky-brown matte.”

Liar – “medium metallic mauve shimmer“.

Factory – “pinky-brown satin.”

Mugshot – “metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift“.

Darkside – “deep taupe-mauve satin”.

Blackheart – “smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle.”

I am personally not a fan of the packaging, I think it makes the product look a lot cheaper than it is and is very clunky. However, it is reliably studied for travelling and has a large mirror, so that is a bonus. I also might add that I do prefer the colouring of this packaging more than the number 2.
