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.
