REVIEW: Urban Decay NAKED3
Just like 90% of the makeup b/vlogging community, I've got a review of the Urban Decay NAKED3 eyeshadow palette.
Honestly, I'm pretty sick and tired of the NAKED line in Urban Decay since they were that brand for bright and funky colours. I know it's popular right now, but I just want to see the bright and exciting makeup from them again. In fact, I'd love an all matte bright eyeshadow palette from them.
Regardless, I ended up becoming intrigued by the NAKED3 once Christine posted her swatches because the rose gold tones in the eyeshadows made it a little more unique than the other two NAKED palettes.
Like the NAKED2, NAKED3 comes in the metal tin but in rose gold coloured packaging. I'm actually wondering if one day in the future, Urban Decay will want to take down the original NAKED from the shelves and repackage it to the metal tin instead of keeping it in the velvet covered box.
When you open up the palette, once again, you get twelve full sized eyeshadows, just like in the first two. It also comes with a dual-ended brush, which isn't a kind of brush I prefer. I much prefer one ended brushes since they are much easier to store (I don't like putting dirty brushes in a palette.) and to use. I don't like the possibility of getting my hands dirty when there's product on the other end of the brush.
But that's just a personal preference. It's not a bad brush and it's not a deal breaker.

The first half of the palette with the lighter shades is much softer, smoother, silkier, more velvety than the second half of the palette. I noticed that the darker shades were a little more rough to the touch when I swatched them. But when applied to the eyes, it's not a problem.
Retailing for $52, I'm not sure if I think this palette has been completely worth the money, but I do like it and don't dislike it. I'm glad I purchased this and have tried it out because I do like some of the colours in this palette. I think that, like a lot of other people, I was digging into the hype when the brand first mentioned this and now that I've had this in my hands, the "I MUST HAVE THIS IS THE NEW "IT" PALETTE" feeling has died down dramatically.
