The Urban Decay 'Naked 3' eyeshadow palette is by far my favourite palette at the moment as the colours are perfect for my colouring, but the price tag isn't so great! At £38 this palette is pretty pricey and for a lot of people, is too pricey for their budget. Don't get me wrong, I love this palette and think it's definitely worth the money but wanted to do a post featuring some less expensive alternatives for those of you not wanting to make that splurge.
The 'Naked 3' is made up of 12 rose-toned shades of three different formulas - matte, satin and shimmer. I find that each shade is very pigmented and can be used both wet or dry. There is a very small amount of fallout from some of the more shimmery shades but nothing that gets too messy. I have been using this most days since I bought it and love the endless combinations that you can create. The brush that comes with this one is pretty good too and one that I use often!
Urban Decay 'Naked 3'
- 12 shades, 3 formulas
- Comes double-ended brush
- Rose gold tin packaging, very sturdy though may not be the best for travelling due to the size
- Good pigmentation, the shadows are very creamy and blendable.
- A very small amount of fall out with the more glittery shades so be sure to tap any excess off of your brush before applying
Makeup Revolution 'Iconic 3'
- 12 Shades
- Plastic packaging
- Good pigmentation
- Slight fall out with certain shades
Loreal 'La Palette Nude'
- 10 shades
- Plastic packaging, very sleek and compact so is great for travelling
- Lacks pigmentation (I find this is only with the matte shades)
- A lot of fall out, especially with the glitter shades
The Urban Decay 'Naked 3', as expected, is the most expensive of the three at almost £40, however, if can get your hands on them, you can bag yourself a good quality dupe for as little as £4 with the Makeup Revolution 'Iconic 3' palette. I'd definitely recommend picking that one up if your starting out with makeup or just want to try out the shades before giving in and purchasing the 'Naked 3'.
