Urban Decay – NAKED PALETTE 3
So, I’ve gone naked again! Another Urban Decay Naked Palette has been added to my makeup kit. I’ve got Naked 1 & 2 in my kit already and they are the bronze and taupe hued respectively.
I love the packaging of the rose and gold colour tin, very tastefully done. As with the Naked 1 & 2 palettes, #3 has twelve shades, this palette has hues of mauve, pink, and browns. The palette comes with a dual ended synthetic brush – a flat shader brush and a blending brush. This dual brush is usable with great results, I have one from a previous Naked palette that I use all the time.
Are you ready? Let’s start with the first colour on top.
#1- Strange: is a matte-satin pink highlight shade, the texture is powdery and very soft.
#2 – Dust: is an intense shimmery light pink shade. Dust has a significant amount of fallout, however, you can damp your shader brush before application to minimize the fallout.
#3 – Burnout: is satin in texture and is a pink/peach colour.
#4 – Limit: is a matte tan/mauve colour. I use this as a transition colour in the crease of my eyes (when doing a smokey eye), and the pigmentation is good.
#5 – Buzz: is a satin mauve/copper colour, with lots of silver micro-glitter. The texture is very soft and smooth.
#6 – Trick: is a brilliant coppery/pinky shade, with metallic silver glitter. This is an excellent warm colour with a soft and smooth texture.
#7 – Nooner: is another matte colour in brown with a hint of pink. This colour is great for the crease and also for blending out harsh lines.
#8 – Liar: I love this metallic taupe satin shade with its pink overtone.
#9 – Factory: this is another colour I love working with. It is deep brown, with a reddish tone, that is great in the eye crease. The pigmentation is rich and you’ll love the results!
#10 – Mugshot: is a deep taupe with a shimmery metallic finish.
#11 – Darkside: is a gorgeous dark purple, deep taupe, with a muddy grey overtone. The pigmentation is rich, the finish is pearl and the texture is soft.
#12 – Blackheart: is a very dark copper matte brown.
Over all impression:
The palette has a high-quality range of colours that blends very well. The pigmentation is great; however, I am more biased toward the last six colours in the palette. I absolutely love Blackheart, it is my favourite because it blends well with most colours in the palette. Dust is my least favourite, because of the fallout I experience while working.
I have been using the Naked Palettes for bridal makeup application, pageants and everyday makeup. I love the clean, crisp, fresh, natural results the colours in the palette gives, and this is the true essence of what makeup is about. Well there you have it beautiful people! Have a great 2014 and beyond!
