Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Here it is, the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette . The princess of the eyeshadow palette world and it has become a part of my make-up collection even before the original Naked or Naked Basics palettes. It's kinda crazy because I never wear pink eyeshadows. Some of you may remember that I'm not even a fan of color pink. No clothes of that color are part of my wardrobe, no pink nail polishes are found on my nails and the only pink products I can handle on myself without feeling too sugary or sweet are pink blushes and lip glosses. In certain shades of pink, that is. So, how is it possible that I've ended up with a “rose-hued neutrals” eyeshadow palette? The key word would be the neutrals part. When it first came out, everyone was having fits and saying “I want that” – however, my Naked 2 palette was on my mind. The pinky neutrals thing seemed rather odd to me. Than many photos and swatches came rolling in. Opinions were divided whilst many of those reviews screamed out that we need it. The entire hype made me a bit wary but there was no denying that it looked absolutely beautiful. Looks created with this palette were the ones that made me realize how I actually would use it every day and get my money's worth in a jiffy.

I evo je, Urban Decay Naked 3 paleta. Princeza medju paletama za sjene je postala dijelom moje kozmeticke kolekcije pa cak i prije originalne Nakedice i Naked Basics mini palete. To je prilicno neocekivano posto uopste nisam ljubiteljica ruzicaste boje. Necete pronaci niti jedan komad odjece te boje u mom ormaru, niti jedan ruzicasti lak za nokte. Jedini ruzicasti proizvodi sa kojima se mogu “nositi” (a da se ne osjecam previse secerno) su ruzicasta rumenila i sjajila. I to u tacno odredjenim nijansama ruzicaste. Stoga se i sama pitam kako sam zavrsila sa paletom sjena u “ruzicasto-neutralnim” tonovima? Kljucna rijec bi bila neutralni u tom slucaju. Kada se ova paleta tek pojavila, svi su padali u masovnu histeriju i porucivali koliko je zele. Meni je u to vrijeme Naked 2 paleta bila na umu jer sam je prizeljkivala vec duze vrijeme. Te neutralne nijanse roze su mi se, priznajem, doimale cudnim. Potom su se netom pocele siriti fotke i swatchevi sjena iz te palete. Misljenja su bila podijeljena no vecina recenzija nam je preko megafona porucivala koliko nam je potrebna. Citava histerija oko ove palete me nesvjesno od nje odbijala no nije bilo sumnje da je naprosto prekrasna. To nitko nije sporio. No, “prelomili” su me make-up look-ovi koje su djevojke kreirale sa ovom paletom. Tek tada sam uvidjela da cu je zaista koristiti te da ce vrijediti ulozenog novca.

I've ordered my Naked 3 palette from feelunique.com and I'd advise all my readers to hit feelunique first prior to purchasing as the entire Naked range is mostly sold out on other web shops. I still was questioning my decision to spit out £37 for a second Urban Decay eyeshadow palette in such a short time span apart from my Naked 2 one. And a rosey one at that. However, the Naked 2 proved me wrong in my skepticism. You really don't get it until you have it yourself and have a little play with it. When this beaut finally arrived home to me, I already had that mindset of comparing it to the bone with my Naked 2. It was going to be a neck to neck comparison from the beginning. I've read somewhere that the word “ugly” or “unappealing” was sent this palette's way once or twice but let me tell you – that is the furthest thing from the truth. I have mentioned before that Naked 2 palette reminded me of an expensive painting kit. Same thing here apart from the fact that it also has a ruffly exterior. Personally, it reminds me of rose gold colored silken bed sheets. Does it look expensive? Yes, it does. Is it visually enticing? Hell yes. Is it better looking than Naked 2 palette? Yes. Especially when you open it up to reveal the eyeshadows.

Narucila sam svoju Naked 3 paletu sa feelunique.com i svima bih preporucila da prvo provjere feelunique online shop prije ostalih jer su cesto ove palete rasprodane kod drugih stranica. Cak i nakon sto sam naplatila iznos od 86KM jos uvijek sam znala preispitivati taj svoj izbor. U svakom slucaju, nije lako izdvojiti toliki novac za drugu Urban Decay paletu u tako kratkom razmaku. No, ipak me Naked 2 paleta razuvjerila i otjerala sve skepticne misli. Zbog toga sam odlucila da otpustim kocnice i malo opustenije pristupim kupovini. Samo je potrebno da ove palete vidite svojim ocima jer fotke ipak nisu nikada dovoljne za stvarni dojam te da se malo poigrate sa njima. Kada je ova ljepotica stigla na svoju destinaciju odmah sam pocela da je usporedjujem sa Nakedicom 2. Od samog pocetka sam znala da cu ih usporedjivati. Negdje sam procitala da su epiteti poput “neprivlacna” i “”ruzna” bili usmjereni u pravcu ove ruzicaste palete. Moram reci kako je istina nesto najdalje od toga. Znate kako sam spomenula da me pakovanje Naked 2 palete podsjeca na luksuznu kutiju tempera? Ista je stvar i sa Naked 3 samo sto je povrsina nabrana, pomalo zguzvana poput tkanine. Mene asocira na nabranu satensku posteljinu. Da li djeluje da kosta mnogo? O, da. Da li je dizajn uspjesno realizovan? Itekako. Da li je vizuelno ljepsa od Naked 2 palete? Moram priznati da jeste, posebno kada je otvorite i otkrijete sve nijanse sjena.


All Naked palettes possess a certain harmony in their appearance but that becomes even more apparent with Naked 3. Just to cover all details – you also get a great double-sided eyeshadow brush. The right fluffy side is especially useful. You also get 4 sachets of  Urban Decay various primers as samples (you get the same addition with Naked 2 now). There are twelve pretties inside and, when you look at them, they vary from a single very light shade, than we have four very rosy-hued shades, a bronzy one, a dusty mauve, some chocolatey ones and a curious black with rusty red flecks of shimmer. This is and isn't a neutral palette – at the same time. Overall, it is a neutral palette because it contains a regular pale shade, four chocolatey and taupe-y shades and a black which looks like a plain black when you use it on your lids. That shimmer isn't as scary as it seems. The pinks are pretty wearable. First, frosty and shimmer pink is the only one I have problems with but others are very easy to wear. I am especially fond of the matte dusty pink (all over lids) and darker matte pink/mauve shade (in the crease) combo.

Sve palete iz Naked linije posjeduju odredjenu uskladjenost. Samo pakovanje ali i nijanse sjena su u harmoniji sto doprinosi estetskom dojmu. Ta harmonicnost je narocito izrazena kod posljednje palete. Cisto da se dotaknem svih detalja, spomenuti cu i da ova paleta dolazi sa dvostranim kistom za nanosenje sjena. Desna pufnastija strana je posebno kvalitetna i korisna. Takodjer u pakovanju budu ukljucena 4 uzorka razlicitih Urban Decay baza za sjene (isti dodatak je ukljucen i u pakovanje Naked 2 palete). Unutar same palete se nalazi dvanaest prekrasnih sjena za oci. Kada ih pogledate, variraju od jedne svjetlije nijanse, preko cetiri ruzicaste sjene, potom bronzane, sljivaste, par cokoladnih i taupe sjena a simfonija se zavrsava sa crnom/tresnjastom sjenom koja ima i crvenkasti shimmer. Ovo istovremeno i jeste i nije neutralna paleta. U globalu, spada u kategoriju neutralnih zato sto sadrzi svjetliju nijansu blisku boji koze, cetiri cokoladne i sivo/smedje (taupe) sjene te crnu koja uprkos shimmeru djeluje kao klasicna crna sjena kada je nanesete na oci. Sljokice uglavnom nisu strasne. Ruzicaste nijanse su nosive. Jedina sjena koju smatram problematicnom bi bila prva ruzicasta (druga sa lijeve strane u paleti) koja sadrzi dosta sljokica. Ostale nisu problematicne. Posebno mi je draga mat “prljavo” ruzicasta (nanosim je preko cijelog kapka) i tamnija sljivasto-ruzicasta sjena takodjer mat teksture (idealna za sjencenje pregiba oka). Te dvije sjene su idealna kombinacija.

Before I go onto describing shades my final words about this palette would be that – if you do own any of the Naked palettes, you can purchase this one without any fear of duplicating colors. Don't own any Naked palettes? Even better. If you buy this one – you'll want the rest of them, trust me. It's different from all you have in your stash. It's undoubtedly trendy. Will it be ‘in’ a couple years from now? A hard guess but I think so. These pinks are complete opposites of Barbie pinks which I do not prefer myself. These pinks really do mimic skin but with adding just a little somethin’ somethin’ to the mix. I think all eyes pop with these colors on and their strength is the strength of the entire Naked range – muted, not too obvious yet sexy hues of skin. Texture is almost exact to the texture of eyeshadows in the Naked 2 palette. It even seems that some shades are perfected, less dusty, with less fallout. Buttery smooth, perfectly blendable and extremely long-wearing. That high price tag issue again? Well, it's all down to blurring the line between ‘want’ and ‘need’. It always happens when I'm madly in love with something. I don't have any regrets. How about you? Have you tried this bomboncito?

Prije nego predjem na opise nijansi, moje zakljucne rijeci glede ove palete bi bile slijedece – ukoliko posjedujete jednu ili sve Naked palete prije ove, Naked 3 mozete bez ikakve bojazni da narucite posto necete duplicirati vec postojece nijanse. Ne posjedujete niti jednu Nakedicu? Jos bolje. Ukoliko sebi nabavite ovu paletu sjena – zeljeti cete nabaviti i preostale, vjerujte mi. Velika je sansa da je potpuno drugacija od svega sto imate u svojim kozmetickim zalihama. Neosporno je moderna. Da li ce biti ‘in’ i za par godina? Tesko je prognozirati no usudila bih se reci kako je to veoma moguce. Ovdje se ipak ne radi o tesko nosivim Barbie ruzicastim nijansama koje ni sama ne preferiram. Ipak je rijec o tonovima koji oponasaju kozu uz samo malo necega posebnog, kako bi zacinile cjelokupan look. Mislim da ce lijepo pristajati svim bojama ociju a ono sto je njihova prednost je prednost i cijele Naked linije – blago zagasite, ne preocigledne no seksi nijanse koze. Tekstura je identicna sjenama i iz Naked 2 palete. Cak mi par novih nijansi djeluje kao da su usavrsene jer manje je rasipanja, manje su praskaste. Puterasto meke, glatke sjene koje se sa lakocom blendaju te traju impresivan niz sati. Ponovo su dileme oko visoke cijene prisutne? Pa, mislim da je sve do toga koliko cete izbrisati granicu izmedju ‘zeljeti’ i ‘trebati’. Meni se ta dva pojma stope kada nesto jako, jako zelim. Mogu vam reci da ne zalim kupovinu. Sta vi mislite? Da li ste isprobale ovaj bomboncito

  • Strange – a very pale milky-white & pale rose hue. It is a tad dusty but it has great pigmentation. Dosta blijeda mlijecno bijela do ruzicasta nijansa. 
  • Dust – this is pressed shimmer to me. Warm-ish pink shimmer with gold flecks all over. Huge fallout, shimmer everywhere. It's a mess. 
  • Burnout – a gorgeous, peachy-pink with a glorious satin, velvety finish. A true skin-rose hue for bedroom eyes. 
  • Limit – my fave from the palette. It's simply stunning and perfect. It's a mauve-y, dusty rose which will look amazing with all skintones. 
  • Buzz – pretty mauve-y rose with a light frost, some cool metallic sheen. Beautiful shade, beautiful formula. 
  • Trick – a perfect example of how shimmer can be done right. It's a gorgeous
    coppery shade with hints of gold and brown and even though it is very
    shimmery – it looks amazing on. 
  • Nooner – my second-best from the palette. Plummy, mauve-y rose with certain depth and richness of color. Completely matte and an ideal match for the crease. Works wonders with Limit all over the lid.
  • Liar – a mauve-y brown, slightly warm at first sight yet it has a gray-ish sheen under certain light. Satiny smooth.
  • Factory – this is a straight-up reddish brown. Very rich, opulent and pigmented. Perfectly blendable.
  • Mugshot – I love taupes so this ever so incredible taupe made my heart melt. Pigmentation is beaming, finelly milled, punchy metallic (almost foil) finish and hats off to longevity. 
  • Darkside – cool brown, borderline taupe. Soft texture, easy to work with, great pigmentation. 
  • Blackheart – blackened burgundy/ cherry shade with red fine shimmer.
  1. Strange – blijeda mlijecno ruzicasta. Malo je praskasta posto je potpuno mat no odlicne je pigmentacije.
  2. Dust – za mene su ovo presovane sljokice. Toplije su ruzicaste boje i prozete su zlatnim shimmerom koji je nesto sitniji. Dosta se truse, sjajnih cestica bude posvuda dok ih nanosite. 
  3. Burnout – fantasticna breskvasto-ruzicasta nijansa jako prijatnog pod prstima, satenskog finisa. Nijansa ruzicaste sa kojom je lako oci uciniti privlacnim.
  4. Limit – meni najdraza nijansa iz palete. Naprosto je savrsena. Rijec je o “prljavo” ruzicastoj sa blago sljivastim podtonom koja je jos uz to mat. Mislim da djeluje savrseno uz sve tonove koze.
  5. Buzz – lijepa sljivasto-ruzicasta koja je blago frosty, mozda je bolje reci da ima njezan metalik odsjaj. Odlicna boja, odlicne teksture.
  6. Trick – savrsen primjer kako se moze napravtii odlicna sjena sa shimmerom. Fenomenalne je broncane nijanse uz tracak zlatnih i smedjih tonova te iako sadrzi solidnu kolicinu shimmera – jako lijepo izgleda na ocima. 
  7. Nooner – druga po redu meni najdraza sjena iz palete. Sljivasta “prljavo” ruzicasta koja posjeduje odredjenu opulentnost. Potpuno je mat i idealna je za sjencenje pregiba oka. Savrsen duo uz Limit preko cijelog kapka.
  8. Liar – sljivasto-smedja koja je blago toplijeg podtona na prvi pogled no pod odredjenim svjetlom kao da ima sivkaste primjese. Puterasto meka na dodir.
  9. Factory – crvenkasto-smedja nijansa. Dosta bogata, opulentna i pigmentirana. Savrseno se blenda.
  10. Mugshot – volim taupe (smedje-sive) nijanse tako da je ova taupe sjena otopila moje srce – toliko je krasna. Fenomenalna pigmentacija, fino usitnjena, metalik finisha koji odlicno djeluje na ocima (skoro je kao folija) i skidam kapu za trajnost.
  11. Darkside – hladna nijansa smedje, granici da bude taupe. Mekana je, lako je sa njom raditi, pigmentacija je na nivou. 
  12. Blackheart – zatamnjena boja tresnje, skoro pa potpuno crna boja vina uz crveni shimmer.
