My Urban Decay Naked 3 palette arrived last week and it truly is a beautiful addition to my make up collection. It was a slight impulse buy as the day it was restocked on BeautyBay just happened to be when I was having a horrible morning. It cost around $90 with free shipping (which took just over a week) which is pretty steep for an eyeshadow palette but I can justify this (and why you should get one yourself!) due to the:
Sturdy packaging: The metal packaging that clips closed makes it perfect for traveling and screams quality. It is the sturdiest palette that I own and it also has the biggest mirror.
The colour range: You can create so many different looks with the colours available within the Naked 3 palette. There are both shimmers and mattes, crease colours and highlighters. The options are endless and if I had to pick one palette for the rest of my life, it would be this.
The formula: The colours themselves are beautiful. I am a huge fan of rose gold which is at the heart of this palette. The eyeshadows are soft and reasonably creamy and have the perfect balance between being easy to blend and lasting all day. The pigmentation is also perfect. You only need a small amount of eyeshadow to get a bold colour, but they aren't TOO pigmented so remain easy to blend. Did I mention that the palette comes with a double ended brush?
And lastly, the hype and general glory of the product. I was certainly influenced by the hype but I do not regret it. It is just as beautiful in person and I get excited to apply my eyeshadow each morning. Even just seeing this on my dresser gets me excited.
If you are wanting to treat yourself then you really must.
