Urban Decay Naked Palettes Comparison - 1 2 and 3






































































I'm aware there's a lot of similar posts out there, but I wanted to reignite the love for the Urban Decay Naked Palette Triology. These palettes contain some of the highest quality eyeshadows for what is actually a very reasonable price, and place shades together in such gorgeous combinations that creating eyeshadow looks is a piece of pie. To the eyeshadow newbie, these palettes will look virtually identical, but believe me, they are very different. Now, of course you don't NEED all three palettes, but for the neutral obsessive, these three will give you a great range. The Orginal NAKED palette is supposedly designed for those with warmer skintones, the NAKED 2 for those with cooler undertones, and the NAKED 3 contains rose-hued shades which  I think are best suited for paler skins. The NAKED 3 is definitely the most individual of the three, but my favourite? It's actually the NAKED 2. For me, I find it the easiest to use and the most flattering on my eyes. There are quite a few similar shades between the three palettes, but I find that if I reach for one it will inspire a different look to another palette. I haven't done a swatch of every single shadow (you can google for such images if you want an in depth comparison), but I have swatched my favourite three shades for you from each palette.
All in all, these palettes are cult beauty blogger palettes for a reason, and if you haven't invested already, I can't recommend them enough.

  4. I think Naked 2 and 3 look the nicest, I quite like the pinky hues for Naked 3. Really good post actually, especially for those of us who don't have any of them! Not that I can afford one anytime soon but it's nice to have a reference for which to get xx

  5. I don't have any of the naked palettes; I really want to get some! I think the naked 1 palette has the most shades that I would probably use on a day to day basis :) The brushes that they come with look so good! <3

  8. I only have Naked 1 & I love that. I have used it so often since purchasing it a couple of years ago. I always talk myself out of buying the other 2. They are gorgeous I think my Naked one is perfect for me

  11. Lovely post. I must admit I'm obsessed with the original naked. I feel like the shades just compliment my skin tone more than naked 2. The 3rd one is a close second but I prefer the Lorac Unzipped palette, which is amazing in my opinion. I love your blog and can't wait to see more!

  14. Although I have pale skin I don't think the naked 3 palette would really suit me... so 1 and 2 would definitely be my favourites :)

  15. I can never decide if I like the Naked 2 or the Naked 3 the most. I think I'll go with the Naked 3 as I've just been loving soft, pinky shades lately and they're so easy to wear with everything.
    Great post!

  16. great post! I absolutely LOVE all the naked palettes! I cant decide yet which one I like best, probably the Naked since it was my very first and I feel like i always with the best combinations everytime I use it. Naked three I'm really starting to love - i know everyone says its best for pale skin. I don't have pale skin at all but I feel like whatever combination you use together in the palette looks great any way!
