Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend :) I know Mondays can be hard for some, but I've got something to hopefully brighten it up just a little for you! Over the weekend I finally bought the Naked 3 palette that has been all over the internet for a few weeks. I was originally on the fence about getting it but once I saw it in the store I really wanted it. I have the original Naked palette that I absolutely love. I skipped the Naked 2 because at the time there were other items I wanted more. One of the main reasons I was on the fence about the palette was I hadn't seen too many positive reviews from brown girls about the palette. I wasn't sure if the colors would work me, however, once I did a few swatches in store I felt I could make them look good. So here it is, Naked 3  photo ff768c7a-f5fb-4251-943d-1ab1450f80ca_zpsee72f357.png
As you can see above it comes in a very pretty hardshell type case. Also with the palette you will receive 4 samples of Urban Decay's Eye Primer Potion (eyeshadow base) in Original, Sin, Eden and Anti-Aging.

So far I like this palette. Aside from taking swatches, I've used it once. I think the colors are absolutely beautiful. There are a few that I had to work with a little more than normal for blending but I kind of expected that after I did the swatches. I don't think this is the must have palette of the century or anything, but do I think it's a nice addition to a collection? Sure. I like neutrals and find that I wear them more than bold colors lately. I can see myself using this a lot in the spring months.
I did a look using shadows from the Naked 3 palette. I tried to use mainly lighter colors to show that they can work too.
