How are you doing today? Me? I'm doing really well actually.
Today I want to talk about one of my many Christmas gifts, Urban Decay Naked 3. For those of you who don't know Urban Decay has released 3 full sized Naked palettes and 2 smaller Naked Basics palettes.
I have to admit, with in the last few months I have become so obsessed with doing my eye shadow. I feel like my face has been missing something & now well I found it. Who would have thought a little bit of color over my eyes, some black liner and well I feel like a model.
Back to the topic!
This is what Urban Decay has to say about their latest installment in their Naked Series:
"Experiment with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN (and insanely beautiful) rose-hued neutrals—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter. It's finally here: the long-awaited follow-up Naked and Naked2 (two of the industry's all-time bestselling palettes)! And this time around, we're giving you a dozen NEW ways to get Naked."
Naked 2, Naked 3 comes with a synthetic dual-ended eyeshadow brush.It also comes with a sampling of 4 Primer Potions: Original, Eden (nude matte), Sin (shimmer), and Anti-Aging. The packaging is similar to Naked 2 which is very sturdy & snaps shut.The inside contains 12 all new eyeshadows 3 matte & 9 shimmers a space for the eyeshadow brush & a mirror.
For those of you who aren't experienced with Urban Decay Naked: Naked one is a warm toned neutrals palette featuring 2 mattes & a combination of 10 satin/shimmer shades. Urban Decay Naked 2 is a taupe neutrals palette featuring 3 mattes & a combination of 9 satin/shimmer shades.
Out of all the Nakeds this is obviously the pinker heavy palette, for me when thinking of which to ask for I automatically gravitated towards this one. I have heard very mixed reviews on this palette some people hate it & feel it isn't universally flattering. Others love it & think that it is the holy grail of the three. What is your opinion on it Kinks?
I had a few neutral palettes already & always seem to gravitate towards a pinker nude when I want a simple look. Each color in this palette is ridiculously pigmented, the mattes feel like butter & the satins/shimmers are super smooth. My favorites are Nooner and Mug Shot!
This palette does retail for $54.00 but I do think it is worth the price you pay for it. I reach for my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette at least 4 or 5 times a week since It was given to me. Each palette can be purchased from the Urban Decay website or from Sephora. Naked palettes houses 12 shadows, each containing .05oz of product coming to $90.00 per oz of eye shadow. If you compare each Urban Decay single eye shadow retails for $18USD, holds the same amount of product .50oz. If you purchase any of the Naked Palettes you are essentially getting 12 full size eye shadows for the price of 3 on their own.
What do you think of the Naked series Kinks? I would love to hear about you experiences & maybe see some looks you've made with any of these three gems.
