Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

I can see where people would be disappointed in this palette. However, I do not share that same viewpoint. I have NC30 skin tone (medium-light w/ yellow undertones). The day this palette was available on, I swooped it instantly- I have Naked and Naked 2 and had so much confidence I'd love this one just the same. Not swatching was risky, but it worked out.

I do notice that the Naked shadows (in addition to other brands) have some fallout, and to be honest I have always experienced some fallout, but not to the extent some users are describing. With a primer, the shadows set perfectly. If using a shimmery one, apply slightly wet over a matte shade first and BLEND the shimmer/glitter in. I don't think Urban Decay skimped on their quality.

As far as struggling with shades on your skin tone, the swatches indicate that ANYONE would have that problem: the lighter shades blend into fairer skin, the medium shades get lost on medium skin, and the darker shades blend into darker skin tones. You can gauge more accurately if you squint at the photos- squinting helps us see the differences in values (lightness or darkness) between colors.

To be honest, I probably wouldn't buy it again after the palette runs out (N1 and N2 are my favorites), but I am really happy I made this purchase. The colors are rosy and lovely, and I really think can work well on anybody with a bit of know-how and finesse. 

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

I was soooooooo excited when i got my palette! I've been playing with it for the last couple of days, and man I am Soooooo disappointed! There is NO pigmentation, The color "dust" is literally "DUST"... so much fallout, and no color payoff! 

The darkest color in the palette its just a non pigmented black, the "red Specks" fall out as soon as you apply the shadow. 

Mine is going back to sephora. 


Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

What about dark tones for a swatch picture?

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

I haven't experimented too much with this palette yet, but so far I am absolutely loving it, especially Buzz! It just is the most beautiful and flattering pink I've used on myself. I'm about the same color as the skin in the third piccy.

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

Glad I purchased from Ulta and returned my second one from Sephora. Why wouldn't you provide swatches for darker skin. WOW, to think I liked Sephora more than Ulta. You guys come on, I'm sure you could find some with darker skin to add to the swatches.

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

Did Ulta provide swatches?

Sephora should have labeled the arms in the picture. The last one is one of the mod's

She's NW40 in Mac & 1R12 in Sephora, if that helps you at all. 

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

That is the lightest NW40 I've ever seen.....


They should show a swatch on a women with more pigment.....

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

I really like this palette. I feel with this one the glittery shades do not have the fallout the other sets do. If you use a primer, they set and stay on very well. I have fair skin and I feel the colors look nice. A lot of the colors are in the same color scheme, but I feel you can mix and match, and why not even mix them with other Naked palettes you might own. 

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette

I looove Urban Decay, I want to a Naked 3, I have a Naked 2 and I love it.

These colors are so amazing.

Pallet Naked 3, come to Brazil, I'm waiting. 

Re: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette


It really is kind of hard to work with this, I tried! This is a look I just did using strange, dust, buzz, liar, dark side and blackheart (whew.)
