Hello loves ♥ I just got back from Mexico and couldn’t wait to blog! A post on my trip will be coming soon so look out for that. This is the first guest post on Laleelovesbeauty and I am so happy to have Fran Lillie on here! Check out her awesome blog here & read her thoughts on Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette below.
Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette – First impressions
I’m starting to feel like everybody my age, who knows anything at all about makeup wishes and longs to have a naked eyeshadow palette and sadly before Christmas I was really craving one. As a present over Christmas I got the Naked 3 palette which I’m really pleased with as I feel I would more so be able to use it every day in comparison to another, such as the Smokey palette.
First off, I was already surprised by the appearance of the palette as for some reason I wasn’t expecting it to be metal… but that may just be me? I really like the sort of, in-dented ripple effect on the palette as I feel it adds a little something to it, as I can imagine otherwise it could be rather boring. I also really love how the palette itself is rose gold as it really compliments the colors inside, which can I mention are rather beautiful.
The palette has been creating using 12 beautiful shades, mainly compiled of shimmery and sparkly shades however there are 3 matte shades which are really good for blending. I love the range of shades and how they’re roughly laid out to go from light to dark, as without sounding stupid it makes the palette a lot more user friendly. I particularly like the first, and the lightest shade called strange as it’s really good for the inner corners of your eye AND your brow bone (win win).
However I’m not about to lie to you here, and tell you that there’s no fall out, because there is, but what I will say is that it is not substantial and I can see myself using this palette for a while to come.
The actual brush that comes with the palette is double sided and comes with a general application brush and a blending brush. Now I do use this still, however I do prefer to use my other eye brushes especially when it comes to blending as I still feel as though the blending side is just not quite soft enough for my liking! I think it’s nice that the palette comes with a mirror built in, especially if you’re one to re-apply makeup or you’re often on the go and don’t want to carry around a large mirror, however personally I haven’t really found myself using it.
One thing, which is good advertising for them is that the palette comes with four samples of Urban Decay’s different eyeshadow primer potions, including – their original, eden, sin and their anti-aging primer, which are all meant to help your eyeshadow stay on all day… so if you like ‘freebies’ there you go.
For £38, and me being 18 it’s not exactly the cheapest eyeshadow palette you can get on the market, and recently I have been seeing a lot of duplicate palettes for half the price. However, I definitely recommend the palette as the shades are absolutely beautiful, and are very easy to use not just at night, but during the day time too for subtle rose gold looks.
If you’re interested at all in any other reviews I may have done please check out my blog https://fairfranblog.wordpress.com where I will also start posting some tutorials using this very palette! But for now, thank you for reading my guest post and I hope you enjoyed the review.
