I've really fallen in love with this palette!! It's become my daily go to. My favorite color is buzz and I wear it almost daily. The mattes in this palette are wonderful and blend really nicely. They are packed pretty tightly so they will last me forever. Blackheart and Dust (appropriately named) are the most powdery of the bunch. They have soooooo much kickback and fallout it's absolutely ridiculous. I've already hit pan on blackheart after owning it for 2 weeks!! I use it every day as an eyeliner. These are my colors and they suit me well however, they do look very similar on the eye. I'm on my 2nd one and I really enjoy this palette.

very pigmented
a lot of product included
brush included is nice (if it doesn't fall apart on you, the one from my first palette did break)
color scheme is nice for everyday wear

blackheart and dust are super powdery
shimmers can be hard to blend
colors look very similar on the eye
some shades can be chalky but workable

For $54 I really like it but there are many dupes for it and you wont have to spend a fortune on it. I'm actually considering returning mine because I did get the silk naturals dupe and I'm loving it even more. Makeup revolution iconic pro 3 is also very similar.

I have all 3 naked palettes, I can't say I have a favorite, they are all great. I like that they made a big change with the color scheme with this, totally different approach with the rosy tone theme. I wish "dust" wasn't so flaky that is my only complaint...great palette

Let me just say, I love this pallet and everything about it. Sure it was a bit expensive ($64 CND + tax) or something like that, but it was worth the money in my opinion. I have very pale fair skin, and hazel eyes. Pinks and purples make my eyes stand out. I've noticed that a lot of people have not been happy with this pallet and I think it's because it is either not meant for their skin colour or eye colour. It is definitely not a neutral colour pallet. I love all shades, the pigmentation and even the dual sided brush :) I would deff buy this pallet again

*Overall, it is a nice palette but i have a few complaints ..
-The light colors are not as pigmented as you'd want them to be
-The glittery colors are awfully chalky
-You get a lot of fallout
*Pros :
-The colors are beautiful
-They are very blendable and buildable
-The price is just right because you get 12 full-size eyeshadows for 52 dollars
*Lets talk about each color individually :
-Strange : Really nice color for highlighting the brow bone. (Good)
-Dust : Not as pigmented as expected. Very chalky. Easy to blend. Shimmery. (Bad)
-Burnout : Not as pigmented as expected. Very chalky. Easy to blend.Shimmery. (Bad)
-Limit : Very Light, Blends beautifully. Matte. (Good)
-Buzz : Great color pay-off. VERY CHALKY. You get a lot of fallout. Glittery. (Bad)
-Trick : Great color pay-off. VERY CHALKY. You get a lot of fallout. Glittery. (Terrible)
-Nooner : Very beautiful. Blends wonderfully. Matte. (Good)
-Liar : Very pretty. Blends well. Shimmery. (Good)
-Factory : My fav shade. Blends like a dream. Shimmery. (Good)
-Mugshot : Gorgeous. Blends beautifully. Shimmery. (Good)
-Darkside : Different but beautiful. Blends nicely. Slightly Shimmery. (Good)
-Blackheart : Very original. Blends well. Shimmery. (Good)
*I gotta say .. this is my least fav palette out of the three but I would still go nuts if I ever lost it.

I was so, so excited for this to come out, especially as it wasn't launched until the 16th Dec in the UK, so I am very happy to own this palette. I'm one of those people who totally buys into the hype of the Naked line and love it endlessly. Anyway, I did wonder what more they could possibly do with neutrals after 1 & 2, but then they come at me with 12 rose gold shades.
I think the first thing I want to pick up on about this palette is that its definitely not for beginners. This is probably the main reason I wouldn't give it full marks is because I haven't found this palette as easy to work with as I did 1 & 2. I have had a few hits and misses when it comes to creating looks with this palette but that could just be me. Also, I dislike the fact that this palette comes with just a sample pack of the four primer potions, whereas the original Naked had a mini primer potion and Naked 2 had a lip junkie lipgloss. In fact, if anyone remembers the original release of Naked 1, they actually had a double ended 24/7 pencil in zero and whiskey I think. Anyway, getting into the shades, you have:
. Strange- In the last two palettes, the first shade is usually the highlight colour, but this is like a white/cream pink matte shade, which I personally would only use over the lid rather than to highlight the brow bone because it has no shimmer, so I was a little disappointed
. Dust- Again a slightly disappointing shade, it looks a little blotchy/powdery if applied without a base, its a pale pink metallic. I would use Benefit's R.S.V.P its almost the exact same shade except for in a gel form so that helps to bring the pigment out a bit, or obviously use trusty fix plus
. Burnout- This is quite a pinky peach colour, you can definitely see the rose gold element in this one, beautifully pigmented
. Limit- This is the second of the three matte shades contained in the palette, its a light mauve shade which is really good for blending into the crease because its quite a dusky, light shade
. Buzz- This is quite a coppery, rosy purple shade, slightly deeper than Burnout but it has that same metallic shift with excellent pigmentation once again
. Trick- As with all Naked palettes, or UD palettes in general, there is usually a gold in there somewhere. This is a different kind of gold though to anything I've seen them do before as its a true rose gold, the micro glitter is pinky rose yet the shade is gold, its pretty
. Nooner- Funny name, Nooner is actually one of my favourite shades, its the third matte shade, its a warmer toned shadow and its like the perfect mix of a pink and a taupe. Easily blended and a good crease shade once again
. Liar- This is like a taupe/pink shade again except its a shimmer and has a little bit of a silvery grey undertone. I like it as an all over the lid colour
. Factory- I think this is where we get to seeing less of pink and a little more brown, as this has more of a red undertone
. Mugshot- This is definitely a more taupe shade you can barely see the pink in there although it is present, its got a very nice frosted finish and is one of my favourite shades
. Darkside- This shade is like a mix of a silver, taupe and a purple and it gives a nice mauve grey finish. Its comparable to Gunmetal & Pistol except for it has the pink undertone
. Blackheart- Hands down the best shade of the entire palette, and my most favourite black shade that I am in possession of. I LOVE IT. They must of started out with what I can only assume to be a matte black then added a smoky, burgundy or wine red shimmer to it. The micro glitter is so fine that I really get very little fallout. What I like the most is that it is so amazing for creating depth in the outer v to literally any smoky look whether you use the shades in this palette or other palettes. Its a black but its not too harsh, its very soft whilst still being smoky and intense. It blows Creep, Blackout & Crave out of the game in my opinion.
Overall, this is probably my second favourite palette after the original Naked in the Naked line. Probably because I think the first six shades you won't get so much use out of whereas from Nooner onwards is where you get the good stuff. Its definitely a brilliant palette, I would still repurchase, but its definitely harder to work with in terms of the colours for me. Well worth a recommend though and its good to see UD coming out with different variations.
