Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - Swatches & Review

Hello beautiful! So I'd be lying if I denied how excited I was when Urban Decay announced that they were coming out with a Naked 3 Palette. I'd also be lying if I denied the fact that I fell into the hype hard and bought it before it sold out in four hours. AND I'd be lying if I didn't jump for joy when it was delivered and hide in my room, swatching and what not. Yup. #beautybloggerproblems 

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

This palette comes with 12 eyeshadows ranging from super sparkly to matte in hues of browns and pinks. This palette also comes with about a weeks worth of shadow primer samples and a double sided brush. The case itself is beautiful! It's a rose gold metal case with a wavy look to the top. Love it!

Strange - a pale neutral pink matte-satin. To me, it's more of a white-pink. Finely milled to perfection and super easy to blend. Not powdery at all.

Dust - pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter. I had some issues with some crazy fall out so I highly recommend applying this with a dampened brush or using a shadow guard.

Burnout - a light pinky-peach satin. The texture is so smooth and soft.

Limit - light dusty rose matte. This is a bit more mauve to me. Texture is smooth and buttery.

Buzz - a metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter. I thought I was going to have issues like Dust, but surprisingly didn't. Texture was smooth and there was no fall out.

Trick - a light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle. Probably one of my favorites. Super buttery and smooth.

Nooner - a medium pinky-brown matte. Texture is finely milled and very blendable but was a teeny tiny bit on the powdery side.

Liar - a medium metallic mauve shimmer. The texture is SUPER pigmented, like, holy cow and nicely blendable.

Factory - a pinky-brown satin. It's more of a dark brown with reddish tones. The texture is very pigmented, blendable and soft.

Mugshot - a metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift. Ah, another one of my favorites! The texture is super soft and buttery.

Darkside - a deep taupe-mauve satin. A little bit on the purple side. Texture is very blendable and buttery soft.

Blackheart - a smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle. Absolutely stunning! Super pigmented and soft.

Overall, I really like this palette but I feel like it's going to be a hit or miss for lots of people. If you're not into sparkle or rose gold, you can save your money. Besides Dust, every single eyeshadow was extremely pigmented and easily blendable. I'm so happy I bought this.
