So recently I went on a shopping trip and I went into Debenhams. I have to admit since becoming a makeup lover, I have been eyeing up the famous ‘Urban Decay Naked’ palettes, and personally even though the reviews I have read and watched haven’t been that impressive, I’ve always had a place in my heart for the Naked 3.
I don’t know if it’s because of the fact that I would never usually pick up a palette full of pink and gold tones or that the packaging is just so intising but I definitely have a soft spot for these eyeshadows.
So anyway, I went to Debenhams and got the Naked Three after thinking through in my mind whether it was worth the £38 price tag, I finally bought the sucker.
I have to say the look and feel of the product and packaging itself does feel worth the budget. It’s sturdy and has a clip when you close it unlike it’s sisters which both have the magnetic close. But it really does feel high end and expensive which is what I’m always looking for in a product which is more than the average spending limit.
You also get a small sachet of the four ‘Urban Decay Primer Potions’ including:
Which I have to admit I haven’t tried yet but am very excited too, I am annoyed that they are going too dry up as soon as I am open them though.
The colours and tones are gorgeous and I was instantly attracted to every single one. They are all really pigmented (some more than others), blendable and soft.
I have done some swatches and more detailed reviews of each shade below:
These are the first three shades you get in the palette, they include (left to right): ‘Strange, Dust, Burnout’.
• Strange is your basic matte white, browbone highlight and it very pigmented and smooth.
• Dust I wasn’t too impressed with as it is very crumbly and you get a lot of fallout, but it is a very beautiful shade.
• Burnout is a gorgeous pink with a subtle shimmer, love this for all over the lid.
The next three along are from left to right: ‘Limit, Buzz, Trick’:
• Limit is a matte rosey shade and is perfect for in the crease as a transition shade, it’s really great for building up pigment as well.
• Buzz is one of my favourites as it is super pigmented and I’ve never seen a colour quite like it.
• Trick is a difficult one for me as I think I got a dodgy one, mine doesn’t seem to pick up on a brush very well, but it is a very pretty colour.
Next are: ‘Nooner, Liar, Factory’:
• Nooner is a great shade to deepen the crease and it another one of favourites, it goes really well with all the colours in this palette and is a fab matte pairing with ‘Limit’.
• Liar is my FAVOURITE colour is this palette. I love it so much, it’s a pinky bronze shade that changes it different lights. It glides on and blends so easily whilst keeping it’s pigment.
• Factory is a really interesting shade as it’s a brown bronze that shimmers and mattes and I do love this one all over the lid with ‘Nooner’ in the crease.
Last ones are: ‘Mugshot, Darkside, Blackheart’:
• Mugshot is a beautiful, beautiful colour, it goes so well with any look and is super glamorous
• I have a love hate relationship with Darkside because like ‘Trick’ I struggle to pick up the product on a brush but even that little bit I do pick up is so pigmented you hardly need much more.
• Blackheart is soo pretty it’s basically your basic matte black with a twist as it has red glitter pieces in it which pick
up when you get in the light. I love to set my eyeliner with this shade.
I really do love this palette, and I have encountered a few other Urban Decay products and have loved all of them so I had high hopes for this, it has some lovely colours that I thought I wouldn’t usually pick up on an everyday basis but I am finding it do. So, if you are looking to jazz your makeup look up but aren’t wanted to dry those bright colours just yet I suggest getting this palette. Some say that the trilogy is the worst one but Urban Decay have definitely proved this theory wrong.
