Since the weather is picking up, or at least it’s trying to, I thought I’d chat to you about one of my favourite eye-shadow palette’s, which I think will be a big hit this summer! It’s Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette which is made up of 12 rosy-hued neutral shades, which fits perfectly with the current Mauve fashion trend going round.
Strange is described as a “pale neutral pink matte-satin.” It’s a pale, neutral-to-warm white-pink with a satin matte finish. This is good as a highlight colour.
Dust is described as a “pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a white and gold micro-glitter. This is best used with a damp brush as it has quite a bit of fallout!
Burnout is described as a “light pinky-peach satin.” It’s a rosy, medium peach with a pearly finish. This is one of my personal favourites in the palette!
Limit is described as a “light dusty rose matte.” It’s a mauve-y, medium pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish, it makes a good base and blend colour.
Buzz is described as a “metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter.” It’s a warm, coppered rose with a frosted, metallic sheen. As you can see it’s very pigmented but does have a little bit of fallout.
Trick is described as a “light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle.” It’s a medium copper with brownish tones and a gold sparkles over a frost finish.
Nooner is described as a “medium pinky-brown matte.” It’s a medium-dark, rosy plum with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish.
Liar is described as a “medium metallic mauve shimmer.” It’s a medium brown with subtle warm undertones and a slightly gray-ish cast on top.
Factory is described as a “pinky-brown satin.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a soft, pearled finish.
Mugshot is described as a “metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned taupe with a frosted, metallic finish.
Darkside is described as a “deep taupe-mauve satin.” It’s a cool-toned, purpled taupe with a pearled finish.
Blackheart is described as a “smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle.” It’s a deep, blackened burgundy with warm, reddish-brown undertones and ruby red micro-shimmer.
Personally I like to stick to the lighter colours, but all of the shades are so lovely. They’re all very pigmented, and blend really nicely. With this palette it’s super easy to create endless beautiful summer looks! You can buy this from plenty of stores, including Urban Decay online, John Lewis and Debenhams. It retails at £38.50 , however Make-up Revolution do a fantastic dupe for only £4! Bargain!
