Makeup Review: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Okay, so this palette was pretty much at the top of my Christmas list last month.  I was dying to have it and I couldn't wait to play with all the new shades.  I was a daily user of the Naked 2 palette, and as a lover of all things pink, the Naked 3 was after my own heart.

I'm not one to use darker eyeshadow shades.  While I know how to blend, the "smokey eye" looks absolutely horrible on me.  That may also be the reason why I don't own the original Naked palette.  The last four shades in the Naked 3, while gorgeous, I have been too scared to even try.  The Blackheart shade actually has red flecks of glitter but it's just too dark for my extremely light skin tone.  I may experiment with the three deep browns in the future, but I've stuck mostly with the remaining eight shades.

My favorites are definitely the Buzz and Dust shades.  I love a light rosy hue with lots of shimmer.  I had a conversation with Jessica (who also owns the Naked 3) and she mentioned that she wished Buzz were a little darker.  I have to agree.  All the shades I've tried tend to show up lighter on the lid than they show on the palette.  It's a little disappointing but not a deal breaker.  Like all Urban Decay eyeshadows, they last all day without reapplication.  At least the quality of the product hasn't been compromised :).

So what's the verdict?  Well, I'm still a daily Naked 2 user (mainly for my eyebrows).  While I love the new shades, I just don't think they match up to the previous palette.  Maybe I just need to play with it a little more but I'm leaning strongly towards the Naked 2.

Do you own the Naked 3?  What do you think?
