Urban Decay is bringing pink back… and this is making me sooo happy!
I've been wanting to get a Naked Palette for a while but I just couldn't decide between the 1&2… when the 3rd came along just at the right time.
Pinks, purples have always been my favourite eyeshadow colours and only in recent years, I've been exploring more the neutral side of the spectrum (I guess partially because bloggers seems to be really keen on neutrals - am I right?!) ;)
The pinks for the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette are the PERFECT compromise!
They are still muted and suitable if, like me, you're over 30s and you fear pink hues don't suit you anymore.
My favourites are Buzz, Nooner, Burnout and Darkside. They are the same high quality that we are accustomed to, with Urban Decay eyeshadows: soft like butter, smooth like silk and nicely pigmented.
Trick is an interesting cooper shade with orangy undertones that would look great with blue eyes; Blackheart is a deep purple/nearly black that doubles as eyeliner with gorgeous red/pink shimmer.
Factory, Mugshot and Liar are bound to be very popular since they are the shades with the most amount of brown/taupe; Strange and Limit are matte base colours, one cooler and the other warmer.
I guess Dust is the only shade that I was disappointed with: It's beautiful but I found it to be a bit chunky, therefore I experienced the most fall out; it's easily manageable, using the colour wet.

As a bonus, you also get 4 samples of the legendary Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and of course, a double-ended Karma brush. The original primer is a staple in my daily routine and I'm particularly interested in trying the anti-aging version.
If naked shades are not your thing, I just saw today a spoiler for a new Urban Decay Electric Palette (check my Twitter for a photo) - no release date just as yet - and yes, you guessed it, it's BOLD and cheerful! ;)
In the meantime, you can paint your eyes rainbow with the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette!
