Sweet Friday Faves 12/13/13

Happy Friday the 13th. Today’s Sweet Friday Faves is dedicated to Urban Decay’s newest addition to the Naked family; the Naked3 Palette. The Naked3 Palette is absolutely stunning. Since this was announced this past fall, I have been saving all my extra money to purchase it and obsessing over reviews and information about it. The theme of this palette is rose gold colors and just like its predecessors (Naked and Naked2) it delivers with impressive color pigment and wear. Seriously I can not contain my excitement that I finally have this palette….

While the previous Naked collections were were more focused on the neutral and nude tones, the Naked3 palette has mostly pink, rose, and gold shadows. Although the majority of the palette is rose gold, it is possible to create a fairly neutral everyday look using the palette. Naked3 contains 12 never-before-seen and absolutely gorgeous rose-hued neutrals; from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with red micro-glitter. Here are the colors this palette contains (from left to right):


            •  Strange (pale neutral pink matte-satin)
            • Dust (pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter)
            • Burnout (light pinky-peach satin)
            • Limit (light dusty rose matte)


            • Buzz (metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter)
            • Trick (light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle)
            • Nooner (medium pinky-brown matte)
            • Liar (medium metallic mauve shimmer)


            • Factory (pinky-brown satin)
            • Mugshot (metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift)
            • Darkside (deep taupe-mauve satin)
            • Blackheart (smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle)

The best way to use this palette is to mix up the hues to add depth to your overall look. If you use only the matte shades, you’ll end up with a flat look, so if you add the shimmer and metallic finishes, it will add more dimension to your finished look. Using the darker shades from Naked3 (Blackheart, Darkside, Mugshot) on the lash line and the outer corner of the eyes will also add depth. All the colors complement one another, so you can mix and blend them to customize your look.

When you purchase Naked3, just like Naked2 it comes with a synthetic dual-ended eyeshadow brush (blending and flat) which is quality and very much usable. It also comes with a sampling of 4 Primer Potions: Original, Eden (nude matte), Sin (shimmer), and Anti-Aging.


All of the shades have seemed to last around 10 hours before any fading *that’s with an eye primer*. The slightly pink and rose tones of this particular palette set off my hazel-green eyes perfectly! They are highly pigmented and blend beautifully. I was nervous about the “micro glitter” but even those are lovely and wearable and not too glittery. I think these shades would look spectacular on both warm and cool skin tones (even though overall palette to be neutral to cool). I am telling you right now, if you buy this, you will NOT be disappointed. You are going to look so amazing wearing this palette! Keep checking Urban Decay’s, Sephora’s and Ulta’s websites to purchase yours today, this is one of the biggest hot ticket beauty items right now so it sells out fast. (I happened to get mine through Sephora).

The color options are simply stunning and combinations endless. It’s priced well for the size and quality. The packaging is well designed and sturdy. I think it’s a definite must-have and will make an amazing holiday gift for any beauty lover. Safe to say, I am obsessed. Make someone smile today! ❤ N.Sweet
