urban decay naked palette comparisons (1, 2 & 3)

Urban Decay Naked1 Palette, URban Decay Naked2 Palette, Urban Decay Naked3*

A lot of people have been asking me do a comparison of the three Urban Decay Naked Palettes so here are some photos comparing the shades in Naked 1, Naked 2 & Naked 3. I'm not going to go to deep into swatch comparisons as Temptalia has that covered already. But I have to admit that Naked 3 is very different to the preceding palettes. All 12 shadows from Naked 3 are exclusive to the palette and none of the shades are TOO similar to the other shades in the Naked Palettes.

I feel the rosy tones of Naked 3 are really flattering on my skin tone and they suit my colouring much better than the other two palettes. While Naked 3 is warm the only shades that worked well on me were Half Baked and Smog, the rest of the shades were too light or looked unflattering.  I've hardly had any use out of Naked 2 as it's far too cool for my complexion and most of the colours looked very grey on me. I had promised myself I wouldn't buy it as I knew it wasnt going to work for me but thats the madness of a beauty blogger! While Naked and Naked2 didn't work for me, this might not be the case for your skin tone... I might do a post on which ones I recommend for different skintones/eye colours!

The main differences between the palettes is that Naked 1 is more warm toned, Naked 2 is very cool toned and Naked 3 have a warm pinkish tone. I find it much warmer than the earlier palettes and all the shades are very different. Although admittedly some shades are noticeably similar from palette to palette. For example, Mugshot is a bit darker than Toasted (Naked 1) and darker than YDK (Naked 2) but very similar in tone. Strange is more matte than the other lighter shades from the other two Naked Palettes but most similar to Virgin (Naked 1) in colour but not in finish. The only shade I felt that wasnt similar at all to other shades in existing palettes is Buzz as it's pinker and more shimmery than any of the other two.

While to the untrained eye there might be that much difference between the shades, There is only so many variations of neutral browns, golds and taupes you can pick from. I think Naked 3 is very different from the other two palttes in terms of shade range and colours. I think this is the perfect palette to  sits within the Naked family. Alone it's a really strong palette but it's sort of the missing link between the other two Urban Decay Naked Palettes.

  1. I am loving that Urban Decay did something completely different with the Naked 3 Palette and although I usually reach for neutral tones, the pinky warm colours are stunning!

  6. I'd love for you to do a post of different eye colours for each palette! At first I didn't want 3 as I've only just bought 1 & 2 this year, but I will wait a while before. Naked 2 still looks my favourite out of all the pictures.

  8. The new Naked 3 colours look beautiful but I don't think I'll be picking this one up- I already have the first 2 and I don't really wear pink eyeshadow that much!

  13. I would absolutely love to have any of those but I think the third one is my favourite. By the way, I've also seen Viva la Diva's version (called Nudie, I guess?) which is quite similar to Naked palettes but it's cheaper.

  14. Thanks so much for this post. I haven't any of these, and I was wondering which one to put on my Christmas list. This definitely helped, and I think I'm going to get the third one. :)

  15. I love the packaging of the Naked 3 palette, suits the shades inside well. My only concern is the shades would be way too pale on my skin. Nice palette, but doubt I'll be spending another heap of money on this to add it to my Naked 1 and 2.

  16. I am in love with the new palette! I want it so much but I'm glad I have the Naked 2 because, as you said, i contains more cool colours, so it's better for my skintone x

  23. There have been some opinions from people saying that Naked 3 looks a lot like the other two palettes. I happen to disagree. I can't wait to get my hands on the newest Naked palette and add it to my collection!

  24. Look at you getting a comparison post up so quickly! This was actually great to read and see them side by side. I have the Naked 2 and I absolutely love it but the Naked 3 palette is on my wish list--what can I say, I'm a sucker for rose gold. (though to be perfectly honest, I don't really want the original Naked…the packaging puts me off a bit since it doesn't seem to last). Anyways, thanks for this post!
