i’m really excited about naked3! I dont own the original but i do own naked2 and the basics palette which I love<3
I’m so excited to get this palette! I own both Naked 1 and 2 as well as the Basics and I think this would really be a nice addition to that collection. Plus I really use those palettes a lot.
I want to know wich one is the best for a beginner ??? cause I really want to buy one but just one! I would like to know wich one you think is the best??
Actually, I find naked 1 to be easier to work with. I find the naked 2 to be really too glittery and cool toned for having green-hazel eyes and neutral toned light to medium skin tone.
I’m a collector, so he’s I want naked 3.. I’m so excited!!! Love Urban Decay
N1 came with a mini primer potion, N2 came with a mini lipgloss, does N3 come with anything other than the brush?
yes! i forgot to add that because i didnt get a complete boxed set, only the palette. It will come with a sampler set of all 4 primer potions. Each will be enough for a week of use.
I would love to see some looks!(:
This is actually the first Naked Palette I’ve been interested in, mostly because I have Stila’s in the light palette which i think is enough to make up for Naked and Naked 2.
this is one I really love!
In a word. Yes. When it comes to UD, the answer is always yes…
As a person who already has other Naked palettes, I have to have this one too!
not that big a fan of the colour pink in general but this palette… so pretty.
How would blackheart compare to Vice 2′s smokeout?
i can not wait to get my hands on it!!! hope its under my Christmas tree!!
I’m just not feeling all the pinky tones!
I wish there were a few more mattes and less super-frosty shades in this, but it looks superior to the mattes and highlight shades in naked 2. Foxy never showed up on me and tease looked bruise-y. I’m going to get this, though, and give my Naked 2 to a friend. This plus naked 1 should give a good variety of neutrals.
This is such a great post… talk about helpful! Loving that you compared all three palettes. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I do own the first one, and I’m totally a fan, of course. My gut response to the 3rd was that it would be a waste of money… but seeing the swatches… it sure is gorgeous. I’ll consider it. ;)
I haven’t purchased any of the previous Naked palettes because I felt like I already had similar to shades to everything UD put in them and also they just weren’t me; however, Naked 3 may be the one I actually buy. Really excited to swatch these in person!
Thanks so much for these comparisons. Of course now I can’t wait to get my hands on this.
the the pinky tones, will diff have to get N3
This post was so useful! I’ll have to check this palette out soon!
I was already sold on getting this the moment I heard “rose gold” but your post just made me want it more! I can’t wait now, and I’m not even a neutral eyeshadow fan (says the girl with naked one, naked two and naked basics…). Also, I does Dust look an awful lot like Provocateur from Vice but in a better formula?! Not mad, love provocateur but I have to layer the sh out of it.
I think there are only about 4 or 5 shades that I like in Naked 3 so I’m glad I went with Naked 1 :) but I’m probably going to end up getting Naked 2 eventually. How does Naked 3 compare with Lorac Unzipped? It seems like they both sort of have the whole rose gold thing…
reminds me of the balm’s nude tude palette!
I’m hoping they do a palette in this layout all brights/colours. I love how compact they are… unlike the vice palettes. So much more travel friendly.
That would be fun! Obviously they couldn’t use the Naked name but something like Stand Out or Show Off would be interesting! I really do hope they do something like that soon!
I will be ordering this palette to mk my naked palette complete
please do a comparison with the lorac unzipped! thanks so much~
Which one of them would you recommend for cool toned very fair skin (summer color type)
In my opinion the naked 2 palette is so much more wearable and less garish than the naked 1, especially on fair skin, which I is one I never bothered to pick up because the darker shades and the shimmer and sparkle didn’t really appeal to me. The naked 3 palette looks gorgeous and I can’t wait to pick it up! But if you’re looking for the perfect neutral matte palette and you don’t need 12 neutral shades I’d definitely pick up the naked basics palette! Its not shows here but it has 5 neutral matte shades and one gorgeous shimmery highlight :) I have the naked 2 and the naked basics and I have cool toned fair skin and I use them both regularly! they’ve replaced mac as my #1 used eyeshadows.
thank you for the advice sarah604! I’ve decided to take basics palette at first, then naked 2.
Lovely detailed comparison. I was pretty much already set on buying this since I heard about it but this post just confirms it – and makes me wanted Naked 2 too!! I don’t own any urban decay products and have been tossing up which naked palette id get the most use out of when bam! The third one is perfect for me. But yeah you make me want 2 too. Haha.
i think the N3 is good for those who has white skintone. i highly recommend N2. so good if u haven’t had any of UD cosmetics, yet. N2 is really multi-functional.
This is an amazing post! Very detailed & informative. I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay palettes, owning Naked 1 & 2 and some of their limited edition palettes. Naked 3 looks veryyy interesting but I’ll probably check it out in person & then probably purchase it any. . . . . . .
I’ve got a few questions. How does sin compare to dust? They look kind-of similar in the pics. How does sidecar and ydk compare to mugshot? Is mugshot at all similar to mushroom? I’m so glad half baked isn’t in naked 3!!! Why didn’t they use baked over half baked in naked 2? I will never understand that.
Yay, great Naked post :) I have the first and skipped the second so at this point… I find myself really wanting #3.
Yay! Thanks for such a useful post. Great swatches and comparisons- I’ve been trawling google for a post like this. n__n The original Naked is my go-to and I use it on a daily basis. I’ve been tossing up between getting 2 but now that UD is going to release a third, I might just go ahead with this one. Thank you again!
So which naked palette is the best? I’m difficult to pick.
