UPDATE: Looks like those rumors weren't just rumors: Urban Decay has released a video on their Facebook page teasing that the Naked 3 palette is indeed happening. There's not a lot of details in the video, other than to conifrm "it's coming," but if you look closely at the text of the Naked 3 painted on the wall, it matches the supposedly leaked photos we found on Reddit of the palette. Study those pictures carefully kids, because it looks like there's a chance they are indeed the colors of the new Naked. We'll keep you posted as we get more info.
We've been Urban Decay junkies for over 10 years now and have no interest in heading to rehab - even if the product hoarding is causing a major dent in our savings account. Can you blame us? The highly pigmented formulas? Those completely covetable Naked palettes? This love is REAL.
However, after poking around on Reddit last night, we are a little curious about the authenticity of - brace yourselves - a rumored Naked 3 palette. While the pictures have us ready to grab the nearest brand rep, shake them, and beg them to take our money, there's still something that's a little…off about the images.
Is it just our obsessed selves, or does it seem that multiple shadow pans from Naked 1 and Naked 2 could have been popped into here to create the appearance of a new palette? The shade "Dust" looks a helluva lot like our beloved highlight shade, "Sin," while what we hope reads "Blackheart" looks suspiciously like "Busted." Finally, the typeface below each pan just doesn't look like the high quality we're used to seeing from our beloved UD.
We reached out to Urban Decay for a comment, but have yet to receive a response. In the meantime, we're keeping our guard up, but remain hopeful that there is a Naked 3 on its way into our addicted hands. (Reddit)
What do you think: real or knockoff? And what would you want to see in a Naked 3 palette (we're hoping for more mattes!)?
