Recommended to Red: Urban Decay Naked 3

Look at that tin!! 
Urban Decay are that brand of make-up that I am obsessed with, but also cannot justify spending a lot of money on. When you've bills to pay and a long distance relationship taking up your funds, you tend to gaze wistfully at while mumbling, "maybe at Christmas or for my birthday..."

Welp, no more!! I finally splashed out on the Naked 3, after reading review upon review, and watching countless video tutorials on YouTube, and oh boy, am I ever in love. 

I own and adore the Naked Basics, and while I was in Cork this past weekend, I found myself at the Urban Decay stand in Debenhams, debating on whether to buy the new Naked Basics 2 or the Naked 3, which I ordered last Christmas but got lost in the post. In my mind, I said, "Eff it, I'm worth it!!" and picked up the Naked 3. 

12 rosy-toned shadows, ranging from matte, to satin to glitter, encased in a beautiful, sturdy, rose gold tin. This beautiful palette comes with a double ended brush and four samples of the famed Urban Decay Primer Potion. 

To the left of the tin there are lighter shades: 
Strange; pearly pink-toned cream
Dust; rosy micro-glitter
Burnout; peachy-pink satin
Limit; light, pink toned brown/beige, matte finish

Then we have the Medium Shades:
Buzz; pink-tined brown shimmer
Trick; cool, rosy-copper
Nooner; medium pink-brown, matte.
Liar; rose-gold/mauve shimmer

The four Dark Shades
Factory; Pink/Brown satin finish
Mugshot; Metallic taupe with pink tones
Darkside: Deep taupe satin with mauve tones
Blackheart; Black with pinky red micro glitter

This palette has so many potential looks and uses, I cannot believe it took me ten months to get my hands on it. It's workable for day or night, any look from understated girly, to dramatic rock chick! 

You need this palette in your life, please don't leave it as long as I did!!
