Let's Get Naked (Again) |Naked3 Palette Review & Swatches|

I'm a follower. I'll be the first to say it. I jump on bandwagons like they're leaving town tomorrow. Which is why I ordered Urban Decay's Naked3 Palette before I even looked up swatches. I'm ashamed to be me as well. But let's be serious for  second, the Urban Decay Naked line can do no wrong. And Naked3 is like a little piece of pure (rose) gold. And without further adieu, let the photos begin!

12 shades based in warm toned rose hues make this palette my very best blue eye'd friend. Light eye readers? You NEED this, it'll make those eyes P-O-P. But overall, this palette is beautiful. I LOVE the matte shades in this, my Lorac Pro Palette has my standards for matte shades high. But one thing I do find that the Naked3 is lacking is a good inner corner highlight. Don't get me wrong, I love a good satin cream under my brow-bone, but for the inner corner I prefer something with a bit of shimmer, and a tad more brightening. But that being my only complaint as of now? Sheesh, not bad at all!

Now, how does it stand up to the rest of it's over achieving siblings? 

VS. Naked (Original): This OG will always have a soft spot in my heart, if you were a fan of the original, but not the sequel, the third will be more up your ally with the warm shades! For me? It's a pretty close tie, depends on the day!

VS. Naked2: I've been pretty quiet about it, but Naked2 is one of my more untouched palettes this year. Maybe I'm on a matte-shadow kick but this just hasn't done it for me for quite some time. Naked3>Naked2

VS. Naked Basics: Naked Basics wins everything. Always and forever.
Naked Basics>Naked3

What do you guys think? Are you drinking the Naked Kool-Aid? Will you be running out and purchasing this? Let me know!
