Urban Decay: Naked3

Urban Decay is a brand I haven’t reviewed yet, so I thought there’s no time like the present to do just that!

If you’re not into make-up, brands and haven’t a clue what a “palette” is then look away now because there are no “nudes” here! Go and slide into someone else’s blog posts…

I usually, in life, do not have enough time in the day, week, month, year, decade and century to put on eyeshadow. I just don’t see the point because A) I have a fringe that goes past my eyes and B) even if I didn’t, it’s just pointless ’cause it’ll get smudged or have eyeliner or mascara marks all over it! C) I value that extra 10-20 mins of sleep in the morning, afternoon or evening.

Having said that, I thought I’d give Urban Decay’s Naked3 a go-go (like a yo-yo but not), and I was very happy with the result.

Behold, the Naked 3 Palette – complete with 12 never-before-seen rose-hued neutral eyeshadow shades. Behold, the Naked 3 Palette – complete with 12 never-before-seen rose-hued neutral eyeshadow shades. Choose from light, shimmering pinks, to deep glittering black shades. Or get creative and combine for the ultimate neutral smoky eye.

Our Naked Palettes have always featured some new shades, but Naked3 goes one step further with 12 completely new shades – only available at Urban Decay. With smooth mattes, shimmering pearls and gleaming metallic, every shade features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability.

Although I know ‘smokey eyes’ would look okay on me, my eyeliner and mascara over-usage make my eyes dark enough as it is… I also forgot to mention that somehow, I don’t quite fancy the look of Space’s Black Hole or to seem as though I’ve been punched in both sockets. I say this because – with me in charge of my own smokey eyes –  that’ll be the result. Hey, I never claimed to be a “make-up artist”, all I claim is that I know how to review products!

The point I was trying to make before I went on Tangent 2,788 was I usually stick to gold, nude and shimmery eyes. Ain’t no business like a naked eye business, ’cause beauty is in the eye of the beholder/s.

Stripping my eyes bare makes them seem bigger (when matched with winged-eyeliner), so it works for me…

I really like the pigments in Naked3, they’re sharp but soft at the same time. I’ve given up asking whether what I say actually makes any sort of sense. Just, bear with me… Thanks.

The packaging? B-a-e. Rose gold packaging that makes the make-up lovers go “Loco (no parentis). The price? Ex-tor-tion-ate. The look it gives? Ex-cel-lent. My verdict: Re-ti-re-ment from trying to make my sense of humour catch on or this Beauty Bae blog happen! I’m going to bed…

There you have it! Next time you want to get Naked (three times!) choose Urban Decay.
