The original Naked 3 Palette launched back in 2013 (how is it that long ago?) and it was a rosy-hued neutral palette which followed the Naked original palette, and the Naked 2 palette which was all about the cool tones.
The original Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette features tin-style packaging, with twelve shades and a dual-ended eyeshadow brush. Urban Decay has launched two Naked Basics Palettes previously in smaller, plastic compacts with six shades.
So I assumed that the Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette was another Naked Basics Palette, but it appears that they’ve dropped the ‘Basics’ from the name, and this palette is just called the Naked 3 Mini Palette.
I would have loved to see Urban Decay do a Naked 1 Mini and a Naked 2 Mini before launching the Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette, especially as the original Naked (aka Naked 1 palette has now been discontinued).
It’s strange to see them go straight in at Naked 3, but they do already have a Petite Heat mini version of the Naked Heat Palette, and I find any new Urban Decay palette launches to be exciting!
“The bestselling Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette goes mini with six all-new, universally flattering rose-hued shades made for every skin tone and mood. These vegan shadows have rich, high-pigment colors and finishes that go on smoothly—never chalky or powdery— and last up to 12 hours.
Get the full range of versatile nude and neutral shades in one everyday eye palette: ivory sheen, peachy champagne shimmer, dusty rose pink, mauve, grey-plum matte, and deep charcoal brown with a hint of purple.
Use these ultra-blendable, velvety shadows solo or layer to create endless looks, from a monochromatic wash of color to bold, smoky eyes.”
The Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette features the same packaging as the Naked Basics Palettes, with nude coloured plastic compacts with a slightly rubberised texture, and a mirror inside the lid.
Inside this palette are six brand new shades, so whilst it’s called the Naked 3 Mini Palette, it doesn’t contain any shades from the Naked 3 Palette which is confusing some, as it isn’t a mini version of the Naked 3 palette, like the name suggests. It’s actually a mini palette with rosy tones like the Naked 3 palette.
The six shades within the new Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette are;
- Glassy – ivory sheen
- Public – peachy champagne shimmer
- Laced Up – dusty rose pink
- Stolen – mauve
- Right Time – grey-plum matte
- Spiced – deep charcoal brown with a hint of purple
I really love the Naked 3 Palette, and Urban Decay is one of my favourite brands, so I will definitely be adding the Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette to my collection as the shades look so pretty, and it’s available right now.
