Company’s Description

A mirrored compact packed with a dozen never-before-seen rose-hued neutrals, plus a double-ended brush and an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler. Dare to get Naked all over again with Urban Decay’s latest shadow palette. Naked3 debuts 12 insanely beautiful rose-hued neutrals in an impressive range of shades—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with red microglitter—in ultrasmooth matte, pearl, and glimmering metallic finishes. Each shadow features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power, and blendability.

Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette includes 12 new eye shadow colors:

  • Strange: Pale neutral pink matte-satin
  • 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

This post will be a full review for this palette, including swatches of all of the colors. If you’d like to see swatches of the Naked 3 palette compared to the Naked 2 and original Naked palettes, see this post or this video for live swatches.


Packaging: 9.5/10

This palette comes in a bronze, plastic palette with a wrinkled surface. The palette snaps shut and contains a full-length mirror inside, as well as a duo-ended brush.

Quality: 9.75/10

The Naked 3 palette includes a total of 12 eyeshadow shades. Strange is a matte cream. Dust is a shimmering, very pale pink-champagne. Burnout is an extremely pale pink with pretty large silver shimmer particles. Limit is a matte, dusty rose shade. Buzz is a metallic rose. Trick is a metallic, soft bronze. Nooner is a matte brown with barely a touch of mauve. Liar is a metallic taupe. Factory is a shimmery chocolate brown. Mugshot is a metallic taupe-brown. Darkside is a rich, very slightly plum-toned brown. Blackheart is an extremely deep plum that looks almost black and has purple shimmer.

For the most part, the 12 shades have great pigmentation and have a smooth formula. All 3 matte shades–Strange, Limit, and Nooner–have a buttery-smooth formula that’s lovely to work with. The metallic shades also have buttery formulas, with the exception of Burnout, which doesn’t have great pigmentation and has flaky, large shimmer particles.

This palette is for you if you like rose/pink/mauve-toned shades, since more than half of the 12 shadows have a pink tone to them. I like that this palette has a balance of matte, shimmery, and frosty shades. But if pink shades aren’t for you, you should pass on this palette.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

These shadows apply to the skin smoothly, with the exception of Burnout and Trick, which needs a little more layering/blending to make smooth.

Price: 8.75/10

For $52.00 you get a total of 0.6 ounces of product. This is a little more expensive per ounce of product compared to Urban Decay’s competitor brands.

    I did not like this palette at ALL. I barely looked at it and send it back.
