If you have never bought a Urban Decay Naked palette, you should know that UD is famous for its highly pigmented eyeshadow. With the new Naked 3 launch, its easy to get lost at the similarities (and differences) of each palette). Here’s my breakdown:
12 bronze-hued neutrals (shades go from the palest “champagne” to the grittiest “gunmetal”)
Naked Palette leans for WARM Skin Tone. Naked contains 4 exclusive shades.
12 taupe-hued neutrals
Naked 2 Palette leans for COOL Skin Tone. Naked 2 contains 5 exclusive shades.
More Extensive comparison of Naked vs Naked 2

Naked 3 shades are all exclusive unlike Naked and Naked 2 which contain just 4 and 5 respectively.
Naked 3 is for NEUTRAL leaning to WARM Skin tones. If you do not know what is your skin tone, we created a guide as well.
Which one should you get?
Depends on your skin tone really.

If you can not decide, it looks like Urban Decay will come out with a 3 palette set very soon. On the Urban Decay Facebook page, Urban Decay offered the 3-palette set as a scavengers game.
It would not surprise me if later on Urban Decay releases front of theperfect3some worldwide. So if you can’t make up your mind, don’t worry. The 3-palette set is coming.
