Naked 3 Palette Review & Giveaway

Hey guys and gals! Happy Monday. Today I wanted to share with you my in-depth thoughts about the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, UD’s newest Naked palette release. Since the release of this palette they’ve come out with lip glosses and eye pencils to flesh out the range, but I wanted to spend time really using this palette every day for several weeks before I came back to you with a rant or a rave. I didn’t want you to think I was buying into the hype. Yes, I got one of the first ones released (thanks to a fast checkout on the Sephora mobile app). But I wanted to take my time. Now, you won’t find swatches here, because I don’t think they ever translate well to how they’ll look on the eye, or the numerous possibilities you can make with one eyeshadow. But you will hear my thoughts, if you’re interested. Click below to watch!

    Naked palettes are every girls’ must haves! you can do a lot of looks with it! Hopefully I could win this one! This will be a perfect birthday gift in case I got it! ;)

  2. Una Mršić says

    I don’t have any naked palette, but i really wish I would! They look amazing, especially naked 2. I’m a 5th year medical student and I want to be an anesthesiologist like U. :)

  3. Muselil says

    Yeah, over 10.000 subscribers :-) Looking forward to see that post.
    In regard of the giveaway; I really like Naked2. Naked (the first) I didn’t like the blue colors. I always look sick with blue colors. I haven’t seen the Naked3 in real life (I don’t think you can buy it where I live – Aarhus, Denmark), but it looks nice. With the rosy-colors – I should maybe wait for summer, but I would give it a try (I’m the nordic type as well) :-)

    Hi Kristina! Of course I would LOVE to win this palette, since I don’t have any of the Naked Palettes and have been looking seriously into getting one (thanks to you), but what I really want to say is that I found you and your blog through your mom’s CE Blog… and I totally love you! you have taught me SO much… things I have been doing all wrong for years with my makeup. I am finally learning all of the awesome and fun ways to play with makeup! Also, I want to say that even though I never knew Erik, I feel like I know him now and have some kind of connection with him, and I feel like through you, I can see him. Anyway, thanks for all you do…you are so beautiful… inside and out! xx

  5. Niki T. says

    I own Naked 1 & 2. I loved Naked 1 when I got it, and I loved Naked 2 even more. I would love to try Naked 3. =)

    Thank you for having the giveaway!

    Hi Kristina!

    I am subscribed to your YouTube channel as jowen@suntimes.com. Thank you for having such a fantastic giveaway! I would love to win the Naked 3 because though I do love Urban Decay products…I am actually a Naked palette virgin! I know, I know. So I would love to win it and try it out! I am a super girly girl and the colors all look like something I would love. (Though you’re right – Dust does look a bit 80s! Haha.)

    On a side note, your skin is so luminous in this video. Would you mind telling us what foundation and other products you are wearing? Thank you!!!

    Jordan

  7. Marie says

    I would love to win it! My youtube name is lillacSwing, so you can see I’m subscribed ;)
    Personally, I love the naked 2 palette, but I would love to have naked 3!

    And your husband has to do the “husband does my makeup video”! It will be hilarious!

  8. Daliene @ Alamo Adventures says

    I’m a subscriber (happydally) and I’ve never purchased any of the Naked Palettes. I almost bought the Nake Basics, but chose a Stila palette instead. Our skin tones are similar so I guess I should try N2!

  9. Amy Rosenbaum says

    I love your blog. You are truly a trusted source of everything beauty related. Thanks for all the awesome reviews and tips!!

  10. says

    Love your posts and videos (and I subscribe)! I haven’t broken down and purchased any of the Naked palettes, but have been tempted many times after hearing such great things about them! (oh and ps, Gidget was leaving her scent with that silly tush-scoot!)

  11. Malwine Nicolaus says

    Your blog is very pretty and you are generous (and pretty). Thank you! (: I love the third one. Never had a Naked, but would love to have one! ♥

  12. says

    Great review! I think Trick would be my favorite. It looks similar to the crease color in the Chai Latte eyeshadow quad from Maybelline. My sisters-in-law and I are all swooning over the Naked palettes. We all really want one :) (I subscribe to your channel :))

  13. Anni Polli says

    Thanks for the video! I love that you took the time to really try this palette out, it’s a very good review! Since my eyeshadow “collection” consists of 4 shades, 2 of which I don’t love that much, this would be a perfect addition.

    All the best!
    Anni

  14. Michelle K. says

    Hi Kristina! Loved your video and holy moly, Gidget is soooo cute! I have a chocolate yorkie, Bentley, but he’s a bit bigger than your little one :) adorable! ANYWAYS, I’d love to win the UD3 palette because it’s obviously beautiful and they don’t sell UD in Switzerland unfortunately :( so it’s hard for me to get my hands on any UD products here. I own the UD1 palette and I’ve never tried the second one, but somehow the 3rd one intrigues me a bit more :) so I’m crossing my fingers! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  15. emerwinsk says

    It looks so nice! I’ve been dying to try this since all the beauty bloggers are talking about how nice the colors translate!

  16. Abby r says

    i have been wanting to try a naked palette but haven’t made the splurge yet! winning one would be amazing! thank you so much! i also love nyx butter glosses! i am hooked!

  17. Tracey O'Dowd says

    Ahhh! You’re my favorite beauty blogger :-D I don’t own any of the Naked palettes but I have been stalking them! Since we have the same skin tone, I think I would love this!!! Thanks so much, Kristina!

  18. kaijsa says

    At first I thought I wasn’t into N3, but am slowly realizing I’m gravitating toward rose gold shades and keep thinking about taking the plunge. Thanks for the review and contest!

  19. Alisa Steinhilber says

    I own Naked 2, and use it quite often!! However, I’ve been on the fence about getting Naked 3 only because I’m fair skinned too, and unsure if the shadows would look good. You’ve won me over! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  20. Tiffany Elam says

    I”m actually guilty of not owning any of the Naked palettes. I’ve wanted to give them a try, but have settled for cheaper options. I’d love to win one, I”m sure I’ll get addicted!
    xo,

  21. Zenimue says

    I have yet to get my hands on a naked palette mainly because I can’t decide which one to buy.

    I’m really fair as well totally the white sheep of my family =O

  22. Christa says

    I believe I am subscribed. I have none of these but would love this as love makeup! I wondered what was up with the pink as you had said ick to it. I have liked seeing it on you and thank you for the giveaway!

  23. Andrea Trautman says

    Ohhh fun! I bought another palette at Target that was suppose to be similar, but the colors are nowhere near as vibrant / long-lasting.

  24. Jennifer says

    NAKED 2 is my favorite. I haven’t been able to pick up NAKED3 yet, but I’ve been interested in trying out rose/pink eye shadow. I’ve tried Maybelline Tattoo you in Inked In Pink, but it looks a bit like my eye is irritated. Keep the videos coming, I absolutely love them!

  25. Creative Christine says

    Unfortunately, I live in Germany – seemingly the last country on this planet who doesn’t sell Urban Decay AT ALL! So, I can only judge by swatches and reviews: I fell in love with the Naked 3. Maybe I’m lucky here and finally can get my hands on it :)

  26. suzanne raouf says

    My complexion is similar to yours, so I’m a fellow lover of the Naked 2, however I would love to try out the Naked 3!

  27. makbasket54321 says

    I am a huge Naked 2 fan as well. I was tempted to buy the Naked 3, but based on your initial “pink eye” comments, I just said no. After viewing this video, I would love to own it as well! :)

  28. Ash says

    I have the Naked 1, Naked 2 and Naked Basics pallets and out of those three agree with you, Naked 2 stands out as the best for it’s color range. I’m really interested in trying the Naked 3; my coloring is similar to yours so it can be hard to find rose tones that work, but after your reviwe I’m really eager to give this pallet a shot! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  29. Rebecca Salzmann says

    I love the Naked collection! I have Naked 1, Naked 2, and Naked Basics, but would love to have the Naked 3! I love rosy shades :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  30. Terrie heard says

    Hello Kristina, I am new to your blog and have thoroughly enjoyed it! I have been watching your makeup tips and reviews as I need a complete new look! Eye shadow has been at the top of my list, I certainly give the palette 3 a try ( even if I don’t win it)! I hope you have a nice vacation next week and a break from computers and phones! Sincerely. Terrie

  31. Karla Gaytan says

    I love the naked palettes, i would love to have the second or the first. I’m not big on colorful eyeshadows id rather stick to the more neutral browns.

  32. Amanda Beach says

    I just found your YouTube channel. Thanks for all your great reviews! I would love to try this palette, thanks for the giveaway!

  33. Kelly Hahn says

    I love all the Naked palettes, but my complexion is similar to yours, too! I love your blog-you inspired me to do my own makeup haul, today!

  34. Hiruni W says

    Hi and thanks for doing this amazing giveaway :)
    I absolutely love the look of the Naked palettes but I’ve never tried urban Decay because you can’t buy where I’m from. The Naked 3 palette is the most appealing in my opinion and since I have dark-tan skin the gorgeous shimmery pinks would look stunning on my skin. Your comment about ‘pink-eye’ made me reconsider though, haha.

  35. Grace says

    I’ve never bought any of the Naked palettes, but I’ve always wanted to try! I haven’t really been able to wear eyeshadow because I’ve never known what suits me, but this palette seems like it would suit my skin tone the best as I’m rather pale skinned and love soft, pink looks. Thanks for the review!

  36. says

    I just started blogging and would love the opportunity to use the naked 3 to create makeup looks for my blog! I would be so grateful if you picked me :-) I have a pale complexion (I’m Irish!) and I think the pinkish colors would suit my blue eyes! xoxoxo

  37. darlena inlavongsa says

    A lot of my friends have been telling me they love the naked 3. I, however as a happy owner of the naked 1 didn’t think there was much of a difference. The colors all seem to be alike to me in all 3 palettes, just with different names. Thanks to your review I’ll have to take a second look at it and maybe I’ll fall in love with it.

  38. Kyla Mathon says

    I am trying to win this palette because I have none of the naked palettes because they are so expensive! I hope to win this as I have entered contests before and lost :/ it would be a wonderful start to a beautiful collection. If I win contact at kygoonie@yahoo.com

  39. Sarah McMahon says

    Just when I thought I had gotten over not having a naked palette here it is again. Sadly its so hard to get in Australia. This one is the most beautiful of all, and will go so well with your rose gold bag.

  40. Tavanny says

    I am just starting into this makeup world and have heard amazing things about this palette! I would love to be able to expand my eyeshadows more and experiment to find what i like!

  41. DD says

    Love the Naked Basics Matte Palette but have always been wary of the pink shadows because of my fair complexion. Think I may look into them now after your video! Thanks!

  42. Lauralady says

    I have really pale skin and I always want it to look glowy so I’m soo glad I found you through youtube. Your face is so gorgeous and luminously perfect :)

  43. Stephanie Ann says

    Urban Decay is my absolute favorite makeup brand! I have NAKED 1 & 2, I’d love to add NAKED 3 to the collection!

  44. Eve Whitacre Smith says

    I own no UD palettes (yet) but Naked 3 and Naked Basics are on my drool list. (That was pretty gross, but I’m okay with it if you are). I really, really hope I win!

  45. RuZale says

    I dont have Naked 3 Palette but I would like to get it in this getaway. Color Buzz looks pretty awsome and also Blackheart for evening makeup! Naked 1 and Naked 2 didnt seem very attractive to me.

  46. melissa says

    I have heard so much about the Naked Palettes but don’t own any of them. Would be awesome to win this just in time for my anniversary next month. Thanks for the opportunity.

  47. Veronika Kostrouchova says

    I have the Urban Decay Naked 2 and absolutely LOVE it so I would just die of happiness to win. Plus I’m a pink kinda girl so it must be love.

  48. Gintree7 says

    I just bought my first Naked eye palette recently and started with the Naked Basics – I am a fair skin beauty and sometimes feel the shades aren’t warm enough. I am drawn to the Naked 3 palette most as I LOVE the colors but slightly intimated by the number of shades, so I’m less likely to buy it for myself but if I WON that’s a game changer! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  49. Nitas says

    My birthday is in a two weeks so I’d love to when the palette. It’s the best palette I’ve seen thus far, and I’d love to win it.

  50. Alexandra Feldman says

    Came across your blog a few months back and have become addicted. Was looking for new spring shades and this palette seems to be where its at. Really appreciate all of your reviews and love that you’re a working girl that keeps it glam!

  51. Irda Wandira says

    A subscriber ! :) Thank you for this opportunity and yes, I am estatic about Naked palettes especially Naked 3 since the colours are so pretty and too bad my country doesn’t sell UD :( I’d love to win this, so thank you again ! :D

    irdawandira@hotmail.com

  52. Jessica @ Keeping Mommy Sane says

    I keep reading about the Naked Basics Palette and I think it would be perfect for my skin tone. Would LOVE to try it out :)

  53. Eugenia Chan says

    Looks like a really great palette for everyday use always have wanted to try the palettes but could never really afford it! What a wonderful opportunity Kristina! fingers crossed

  54. Chelsie Hansen says

    I have heard great things about the naked palettes. My sister has number 2, and I think it is so pretty. I would love to try out number 3. I love all your beauty tips, Thanks!

  55. Jen says

    This would be fantastic! I have yet to purchase a Naked palette, but I’ve wanted every single one – especially #3. :)

  56. Nguyen says

    I’ve desired owning some naked palette for so long but there’s something hold me back with the first two but not with this 3rd one. I felt in love with it at the 1st sight, literally. Love those rosy shadows <3 thanks u so much for this giveaway !

  57. Dana Schreiner says

    I love the idea of pink eyeshadows without looking sickly! Thank you for the thoughtful review, it has changed my mind about the Naked 3 Palette.

  58. vintagejewel says

    I have the original Naked palette and I use it all the time! I love pink eyeshadows, so the Naked 3 would be great for me if I won!

  59. Sandy says

    I never owned Naked1 but I agree with you that Naked2 is much more flattering on our skin tones. The Naked3 palette would be a wonderful addition to my small palette collection. I used to think that pink-toned eye shadows make people look bruised or allergic. And congrats on hitting 10,000 subscribers!

  60. Elizabeth L. says

    Ooh I would love to own my first Naked palette! I’ve only used a friend’s and I’ve been wanting my own forever. Thank for the video and the wonderful giveaway!

  61. Emily G says

    Love this! Your vids are my favorite. I don’t own any of the Naked pallettes, but I love the look of the Naked 3. <3

  62. María Paola Goitía says

    I don’t own any Urban Decay palette :( it’s too expensive for me and i can’t reach them here in my country! kissessssss sweetie! love your videos! I’m a subscriber<3

  63. Cinnamon says

    I have the Naked 1 palette, but was intrigued when they came out with #3. Sometimes I feel too shimmery when I wear the original. I love your blog–I read it daily and follow you on Instagram also! Thanks for all the beauty tips. Sephora should pay you…I’ve become quite the customer since following you. :) Cheers.

  64. says

    Thanks for the review. :) I haven’t tried any of these palettes, but I’ve been considering this one for quite some time now. The colors look so beautiful!

  65. Tiffany says

    ALL the Urban Decay Palettes are gorgeous and perf. The URBAN DECAY 3 has mainly rose gold-ish colours / vintagey and its my favourite one :) They don’t sell them in Australia so FINGERS CROSSED !!

  66. Jennifer Holmes says

    I’d love to try this palette! I’ve never bought any of the naked palettes before so would be great to try it out! xx

  67. Elle says

    Urban Decay is one of my favourite brands and they have yet again made something so damn beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway

  68. Karyn says

    I have the first Naked palette, but skipped on the second palette because I didn’t think it would go well with my skin tone. However, I think the Naked 3 will go perfectly with my golden, brown skin!

  69. Sophie says

    Hi Kristina,
    I have heard so much about the Naked palettes but unfortunately I’m on a very tight budget all the time, so there’s no chance of me getting one in any time soon. I absolutely adore your blog and am so glad that you are doing a giveaway on the newest Naked palette since the rosy shades would be just perfect for my skintone! I’m hoping really hard to win this waah! Love you, bye <3

  70. Emily Victoria Fernandez says

    Hi, my name is Emily. I been hearing a lot about the Naked palette. I also been seeing a lot of make up tutorials for the naked2 palette. I just fell in love with it. But unfortunately I’m in a tight budget and not able to afford it. I’m glad you are doing a giveaway and it will help me a lot to accomplish my looks.
