I know you all were wondering where the makeup portion of my blog was. Today it has arrived with a quick glimpse of my new palette, Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette. This Rose colored palette consists of beautiful shades that will compliment all complexions. If you are a fan of pink, mauve, rose, cream, and gold hues this is the palette for you. If not, avoid this palette at all costs. I purchased my palette via my recent drugstore.com haul.
I also created a cute eyeshadow look that I call Chocolate Covered Strawberries which also features the new Wet n Wild glitter eyeshadows.
I am definitely enjoying this palette; however, the color pay of this version is not comparable to the others. The shades are beautiful, even on women of color, but I did find that this palette required several applications for the colors to show completely. I’m not a fan of the packaging design either. Seriously, who decided to make the palette bumpy? Hello! It is a Rose hued palette so how about adding roses to the packaging rather than the waves. Overall, I rate Naked 3 a 8/10 due to the color pay off and funky packaging design.
I like to end all reviews on a positive note which isn’t hard for this palette. The looks you can create are endless and the colors can easily be turned into cheek highlights or blushes. I’ve also added a small amount of clear gloss to my lips and placed dust over it. Dust looks great on the lips and as a cheek highlight on women of color. Let record also reflect that the rose gold color in this palette, trick, is gorgeous!
