Project Focus 10 – Week 10 Review & Update

Hello, hello!

Week 10? I cannot believe that it has been 10 weeks already!

Project Focus 10 Collab - Urban Decay Naked 3Today I’m reviewing the final product in the Project Focus 10 Collab with my lovely fellow bloggers: Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom, Stashy from Stash Matters, and Joy from Styled with Joy.

So what is Project Focus 10?

10 different products that have been forgotten or neglected, or that we just want to use up, that have not been reviewed on our blogs before (but are still on the market). Over the course of 10 weeks  we will make an effort to try to use them, and review one of the products weekly (every Monday), and update on our progress on each of the 10 products over the 10 week period.

Urban Decay Naked 3

I’m reviewing the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay. As you probably know, I have a LOT of single shadows, and only a few palettes, so this was a good excuse to give this neglected palette some love.

Here’s what it says on the website:

Experiment with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN (and insanely beautiful) rose-hued neutrals—from pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter. It’s finally here: the long-awaited follow-up Naked and Naked2 (two of the industry’s all-time bestselling palettes)! And this time around, we’re giving you a dozen NEW ways to get Naked. (Yes, we loaded this palette with 12 NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN shades.)

Choose from every finish imaginable: ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics. From the palest, shimmery pink to deep, warm black, these neutrals will make you want to get Naked all over again. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

My experience:

This is a gorgeous palette with both shimmer and matte shades. The more glittery shades (dust, buzz and trick) are prone to fallout, but using primer helps reduce fallout. The other shades are easier to work with and have great blendability. My favourites are shade, limit, nooner, liar, factory, mugshot, darkside and blackheart. This is a perfect palette for year round use and it is great for a wide range of looks from subtle to dramatic. The brush is better than a lot of ones that come with palettes, but I do prefer to use my other brushes (especially my Wayne Goss ones).

  1. I’ve stayed away from all UD Naked anything but if there was one palette I would consider, it would be this one. It has a great mix of shimmers and mattes. I also like the cover design (not that it has anything to do with the eye shadows themselves!)
    I’m so impressed you managed to finish 4 items! I’ll likely manage to “finish” one item: the mascara. And that’s more due to it getting a bit clumpy, not necessarily finished.

  2. We did it !!! Yay:)
    Of all the Naked palettes the Naked 3 is the one I really want. Like you said beautiful for summer or the winter months! I don’t even think I own these kind of shades 😀 Your swatches makes the palette even more attractive. xoxoxo
