NWR: Urban Decay Naked Palette?

I'm thinking about buying one of the Naked palettes but I can't decide which. Anyone have any of them? What's your colouring like? I've heard the first one is better for warm tones and Naked 2 is better for cool tones, while the Naked 3 is rose and might work for either.

I can never figure out if I'm "warm" or "cool". I have a lot of rosy pink in my skin and my veins look blue, not greenish, but I have very warm blonde hair (more gold than ash), hazel eyes, and while I mostly burn I think I tan kinda yellow.

I wear a lot of neutral shades in my eye makeup and I really can't tell by looking which of the Naked palettes looks most like what I wear. If anyone has any personal experience with them, please share!

    I am pale with pinkish tones I guess. Green/brown eyes, medium brown hair. Naked 1 and Naked 2 work well on me. I didn't bother with naked 2, since by the time I had an interest in it naked 3 was about to come out and it was more of a rosy brown palette that would work better with my colors.

    You'd probably do well with 1 or 3 based on your description.

    I'm a pale and freckly ginger, and I adore my Naked 2 palette. Most of the shades in Naked 1 look nice on me too, and most of Naked 3 is questionable. Rose gold on me is just overwhelming combined with my hair, I think.

    I use this palette pretty much every single time I wear makeup (usually just weekends). A++, highly recommend.

    I don't wear makeup but my best friend is obsessed with the first one. I got her 3 for part of her bridesmaids gift and she says she really likes it. She has darker olive skin.

    I have all 3 and I think the first and third are my favorites. I've used up almost all of the N1 pallete. I know right now there is a UD vault package thing out where it has all 3 naked palettes, all 3 naked basics, 3-4 double ended eyeliners, and 3-4 lip glosses for $280 which is SO worth it! All of the naked related makeup in the line is amazing. By far my most used and I have ALOT of makeup due to a friend who's a makeup artist passing on over half of her makeup kit to me when she decided to go back to school for nursing. But if I had to suggest just 1 buy the 3rd the colors are gorgeous and complement all skin tones IMO. Also keep your box and receipt and if you don't like it exchange it.

    I had 2 and currently have 3.  I'm a spring, blonde with platinum and purple highlights, fair skin that tans nicely and either yellow or pink undertones, depending on the light.  2 was nice, but not quite right. 

    I got 3 when it came out and it was PERFECT for me.  I gave my 2 to my best friend, who is a winter with darker skin with yellow undertones, and dark hair.  She loves it.

    I have 3 (FI actually picked it out) and I really like it. I'm pale with brown hair/eyes and the pink tones worked surprisingly well. There's also enough brown/tan tons to mix it up. Love Urban Decay in general.

    If you're near a Sephora/Ulta, you can probably go in and have a employee help you pick out the palette that matches your skin tone.

    I suggest going in and asking what they think. I have the Naked 1 and I love it. I've had it since it came out and my favorites are finally starting to go and some I never use. I wish you could buy refills.

    I have the 2 and the 3- brown hair, brown eyes, somewhat normal colored skin. I use them every single day. They seem a bit $$, but I think they are worth it.

    My understanding is that 1 and 2 are somewhat similar, then the 3 is totally different (rosier vs. lots of browns).

    FWIW, the Urban 25/7 eyeliner is also amazing and the only eyeliner I ever wear.

    This was really helpful. I went with the Naked 3 thanks to the comments.

    I briefly considered actually asking someone at Sephora, but then I would have had to, you know, talk to someone. I had to take advantage of my Sephora VIB 20% this weekend - it's on until Monday if anyone else has VIB or VIB Rouge status, ps.

    I grabbed a new Urban Decay setting spray too - that stuff is AMAZING. Urban Decay is one of my favourite makeup brands but I've always worn Stila shadows before so I'd never bought a Naked palette before.

    I wanted to buy one for my wedding!!! I was thinking I would go with 2. I have rosy skin sometimes, red hair and blue grey eyes. I can usually pull off warm and cool colors

    Im vampire pale (Sephora described me as having pink undertones, neither warm or cool) with light brown eyes and chestnut brown hair.  The Naked 3 palette is my go-to everyday palette.  I like the brush it comes with too. 

    I switch my primer loyalty though. UD Primer potion is great but Too Faced Shadow Insurance helps my uber greasy lids better.  I find that UD shadows stay put really well on their own though.

    I loved my Naked 1 palette and my coloring sounds really similar to OP's.... I left it in a hotel room and it mysteriously was never turned into lost and found (uh huh) and I replaced it with the Naked 3. I think I liked the Naked 1 best though. I tried the Naked Basics palette, but hated that all the colors were matte. I need a matte/shimmery mix, for sure. I returned it to Sephora for a full refund... gotta love Sephora's no questions asked refund policy if colors don't work out... I rarely use it, but when I do, I love it.

    I would get Naked 1 or Naked Basics. I have both of those and love them. I find that 1 has the largest variety between shades, so it's a great go-to palette to start with. 2 didn't particularly interest me, and I wasn't crazy about all the pinky/rose colors in 3. A lot of people had issues with color payoff on 3 when it first came out, but Urban Decay might have fixed the issue by now. My friend bought it and had to return it and the sales associate told her a lot of people were bringing them back.

    I am very pale, but with olive undertones. I have brown hair and brown eyes. I own all three Naked palettes and absolutely love them.  1 and 3 are my favorites.  I also own Shadow and Vice 2, although I usually only break those out for super dramatic makeup.  They are all fantastic.  Great pigmentation and if you use their eyeshadow primers they are flawless and last all day.  Vice 2 honestly hasn't been my favorite palette, but as a general rule you can't go wrong with Urban Decay.

    I bought the Naked 2 palette for my wedding. I have light brown hair, blue eyes, pale skin and freckles. I have blue veins; does that mean I'm "cool toned"? I could never figure that out.

    Anyway I just used the Naked 2 palette last night when we went out for my bday and I really liked it :) FI liked it too! Perfect colors. I don't think you could go wrong with any Urban Decay product. That and Benefit are my most favorite makeup brands ever.

    I love the Naked 3 palette-- it's what I used for the wedding and I got a ton of compliments on my makeup. LOVE UD!

    I have the Naked 1 and use it every single day. I really want the Naked 3 because the colours look different enough to justify getting another one ;)

    I have all 3 (and every other UD palette ever.)  Honestly 1 and 3 are my favorites, I find 2 can be a bit harsh and very similar to 1.  I love that 3 is a bit more rosy however if you are someone who wear more red or purple lipsticks, then I would go with 1!  My blog readers always liked 1 and 3 the best if that helps also!

    I have the Naked 1 and the Naked Basics.  Love them both, I haven't tried any of the others, as I'm afraid the rosy tones in the Naked 3 may make me look tired.  I have a neutral skin tone.  Not warm or cool which makes foundation matching a blast! haha

    I have Naked 1, Naked Basics and Naked 3.  I love the colours of Naked 3, but the shadow quality seems not to be as good as Naked 1.  Basics wasn't an ideal purchase for me, as I don't wear matte shadows very well.
