enter the rose tones of Naked 3.
I know what you're thinking, hmm pink is not my thing. Don't panic, there is something for everyone here and although the pink tones in here are much warmer rose tones there are also some bronzes and dark colours to blend in.
First things first the case. It's a tin style much the same as Naked 2. Rose Gold tin embossed with antique gold lettering.
Inside are 12 brand new shades that haven't been seen before. Textures are a mix of matte, pearl and metallic and the formula of these shadows feels the same as the previous two Naked palettes.
For those of you regular Naked lovers you will know that the colour pay off is good, the colour tones are beautiful however the shadows do drop a little. This is mainly due to the super soft texture of the powder.I found the metallic finish colours are the main culprits for the drop down. The matte and pearl finish colours have a standard amount of fall down to be honest.
To rectify this either do your base makeup second or use a shadow shield. Problem solved.
Once on the eye the colour lasts and if you blend a base primer or cream eyeshadow under as a prep then they last even better.
The colours are very wearable for day or evening and as there are a mixture of cool and warm tones they would suit any skin tone although they look particularly amazing on a warmer skin tone or on a tanned skin.
There is also an included aluminium ferrule, dual ended brush. Hairs are synthetic and one end is firm and the other softer for a more blended finish.
You could wear any of them with each other for a seamless blend.
Our favourites are the colours Nooner which is similar to Quarry from MAC. It looks great in the socket line as a middle colour to help blend dark to light. Also Blackheart is a warm brown/black shot through with a rose gold sparkle pigment. Looks Beautiful on all eyes and helps to darken the look of all the colours for a more evening look.
