I now have the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette in my hands, and can I just say the hype is worth it.

If you are a previous owner of the other 2 Urban Decay Naked offerings (I don’t really bunch “Basics” in with these) then you will find an additional 12 unique shades to play with in this palette.

I’m not going to go into shade descriptions and all that jazz, you can read about eleven billion other blogs doing that.

I’ve used mine a couple of times now and have loved the outcome. So far my favourite shade of the bunch is Factory and my least favourite is Dust, however I found it’s a great shade to use to layer over other shadows for a bit of sparkle. I also love the 3 matte shades included and find they are totally unique to my collection (in particular Limit & Nooner).

I’m a fan of the packaging, I love the rose gold look to it and the fact that it is nice and sturdy and the brush included is actually of decent quality (unlike most brushes included in palettes which tend to make their way to my bin).

This is a look I did recently using the Naked 3, I can’t remember what shades I used and think I just kept adding to it to get a good try of a few shades. I think these shades work really well with my eye colour!

Now, how can you buy this if you are in Australia? I have a couple of options for you!

Look Fantastic – This is where I pre-ordered my UD Naked 3 palette. This was the first time I had used this site but reviews were great so I jumped in and ordered it. Product arrived approximately a week after they notified me it had been shipped, it turned up on my doorstep packaged well and I have no complaints! I keep getting discount emails from this site (like daily, which can be annoying) but I think I will keep them in mind for my future UD purchases, particularly if I can get a discount! Also shipping is free, always a major plus. (Note: This is currently sold out on the site, however you can put your name down to be notified when it is in stock).

Beauty Bay – They have been stocking this on and off (when it’s on the site) Unlike Look Fantastic you can’t put your name down to be notified when it’s back in stock (well not that I could find anyway). I’ve ordered from Beauty Bay multiple times and have never had an issue. Their customer service online is great and I love the fact they show the prices in $AUD. Again, free shipping! (Note: Currently not on the site, keep checking though it does make an appearance from time to time).

I’m looking forward to playing with this a bit more and seeing what looks I can create. Do you have the Naked 3? Do you love it?

I’m sure you’ve heard the news of Urban Decay releasing the Naked 3 palette and i’m sure you’re wanting to get your hands on one. Since Urban Decay isn’t stocked in Australia and we can’t order directly from them (or Sephora for that matter) it makes it a bit harder for us Aussies to pick one of these babies up.

Today I found a site that you can pre-order the Urban Decay Naked 3 from.  A UK based online store called Look Fantastic, Other amazing news is that they also have free shipping to Australia! I found site through one of my fave UK bloggers ViviannaDoesMakeup.

So the deal is you can pre-order with stock expected to be released on the 21st December (I know, a long wait but i’m sure it’s worth it!). The price is £37.00 which at the time of writing this translated to around $66AUD.  (I’ve pre-ordered mine!).

I’ve never shopped through this website before, so I am kind of taking a gamble but I checked out reviews and they seem very positive. If you’re a bit wary of using a different site I’m sure if you keep your eye on Beauty Bay that they will be stocking it as well.

If you want to see some swatches of the new UD Naked 3 check out the following posts from Temptalia & XSparkage.


If your a fan of the Urban Decay Naked Palette (seriously this is my HG product!) then surely you’ve heard of the sequel, the Naked 2!

When the initial palette was released it was like trying to pull teeth trying to get your hands on one and get it shipped to Australia, but luckily the UK online store Beauty Bay  came to the party and stocked and shipped them to us lucky Aussies.

Guess what? THEY HAVE THE NAKED 2! and wanna know something else? FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING (at time of posting this).

So of course as soon as I got the email, I ordered one and am now patiently waiting for it to arrive. All up with currency conversion it cost $55 which is less then 2 MAC eyeshadows here.
