Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Look at this amazing packaging!
Naked 3 palette was love at first sight. 
I just couldn't bare not to order and complete my Naked collection by Urban Decay.
I have to say - this is probably my favorite out of the threesome - apart from Naked Basics and sentimental value of first Naked palette.
It's a perfect mix of rose-gold neutrals, mauves and pinks.
This is THE Naked palette for neutral-cool skintones like mine. 
Naked 3 is not too cool and not too warm and contains lovely matte shades for blending.
Naked 1 was a bit too warm and Naked 2 was a bit too cool for my taste.
Don't get me wrong - I love bronze/warm/gold shades but they tend to look orange on me. 
Taupes and silver can get a bit boring after a while.

The mix of shades is pretty much perfect - you have an almost matte highlight, 2 matte blending colors and metallic/glittery/shimmery finishes.
My favorites are definitely Nooner (perfect blending color for cool skintones), Liar, Mugshot and Buzz.
I can now easily go on a trip with only these eyeshadows and not worrying about extra mattes.
Color pay-off is amazing - only Dust and Trick have a little fall-out.
 Shades transfer exactly the same as they look in the pan.
I just didn't bother with swatches since there's ton of them on other blogs.

As a bonus you also get 4 samples of primer potions which I loved in the past. 
I'm especially curious about Eden and Anti-Aging primer.
The dual-sided brush is also a lovely synthetic brush for blending (like Mac 217) and creating looks.
You can get Naked 3 on Lookfantastic for a pretty good deal with activated discount codes
Naked 3 retails for about 45€ and it's well worth the money.
I could easily say Naked 3 is my favorite out of the bunch, however Naked 1 has A LOT more sentimental value as my first proper UD palette.
Do you own any Naked palettes? Which one is your favorite?
