I think it’s safe to assume there were a lot of happy faces at Christmas with many of you finding a Naked 3 palette in your stockings. A part of me feels guilty for relegating 1 and 2 to the back in favour of this but it’s so fiiiiine. I have been really enjoying using the Naked 3 palette with my absolute favourite shade being the sexy and dark Blackheart (I can see me hitting the pan on this one).
Here’s a smoky look I did recently. I used UD’s Primer Potion in Sin with its champagne coloured base and patted on the pink Buzz over the lids and the russet Trick in the inner eye corners before smoking out with Blackheart.
These pictures were taken after 7 hours wear so it’s a very good indication of Urban Decay eyeshadows’ lasting power.
Which shades do you gravitate towards on Naked 3? Are there any unusual combinations you’ve come up with this palette? Do let me know!
Naked 3 is almost here (and if you’ve ordered online from House of Fraser, then you may well have the palette already). Well Urban Decay also has two new nail polishes to coincide with the arrival of Naked 3: the dark aubergine Blackheart and the shimmery sea-green beauty with speckles of gold and silver that is Zodiac, which is what I’m sporting above.
I’ll cut straight to the chase here: the bottle alone is a sight to lust after. It’s a slick and shiny chrome handle with a skull on top and Urban Decay’s name branded down the side. I love how feel of their lipstick packaging and the polishes are in line with those.
Urban Decay’s formula is naturally free of the nasties: Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. It’s also lusciously opaque and easy to apply.
Both polishes are available for only a limited period only at £10 each and launch on the same day as Naked 3 is in the shops (that’s 16th December).
The rumours were true, the reality has surpassed expectations. Urban Decay’s much anticipated Naked 3 palette is almost within the clutches of make-up junkies and last night I got to see it, touch it, try it and take it home.
I’m sure many of you have already scoured the other beauty blogs for everything and anything about Naked 3. In short it is full of rose-hued shades, it’s in a gorgeous rose gold coloured tin case with a rippled effect and it’s available to buy online and in store on Monday 16th December. It completes #theperfect3some in the series of Naked palettes from Urban Decay. That’s all you need to know, right?
Naked3 comes with 12 brand new shades, it’s the first time Urban Decay has created a palette with a dozen never-before-seen shades that aren’t available anywhere else. It has mattes, pearls and metallics and of course they are deliciously smooth, rich in colour and heavenly to blend. And they will suit all skin tones.
The shades I made a bee-line for were the darker ones: Blackheart (smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle), Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin), Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift) and Factory (pinky-brown satin). Hnnnghhh! Seriously sexy colours. Unlike the previous palettes, I can certainly see myself using all the shades from Naked3. I wonder if Urban Decay have finally cracked the code with this one.
It feels like my birthday has come a few weeks early. I’m more excited over Naked3 than its predecessors and I love those (and Naked Basics).
Are you going to get Naked for the third time?
