Urban Decay Naked3 – Review and giveaway!
Since launching a few months ago the Urban Decay Naked3 eyeshadow palette has been flying off the shelves. I have to admit that I too was sucked into the hoo-ha and excitement surrounding the launch and visited multiple Sephora stores in hopes of snapping one up, however they were all out of stock.
It took some thinking (which hurt of course) but I finally thought to go to the source direct, the Urban Decay website, and finally got my pink painted claws on this little baby and let me tell you… it was well worth the hype and excitement.
I absolutely adore this palette! I have always used darker shades of eyeshadows but lately have been attracted to lighter colours and looks and Naked3 has been making this transition a hell of a lot easier. The palette is made up of 12 gorgeous neutral shades, from pales, to pinks to browns and can be mixed and matched to create endless looks for both day and night. The eyeshadow is long-lasting, especially when worn over an eye primer.
I use Naked3 all the time and recommend it to all my friends and of course to you! Here are all the details and some just some of the looks I’ve created using the palette.
WHAT IS IT
Here are 12 beautiful rose-hued neutrals in a range of shades—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with red microglitter—in ultrasmooth matte, pearl, and glimmering metallic finishes. Here are the names and descriptions:
