Happy Friday, beauties! If you’re having a rather gloomy Friday, fear not – I’m about to brighten it up in a BIG way!
Did you know? The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette is the single most searched (googled) Urban Decay palette on google. Yep, I remember all the hype surrounding this little palette when it first launched back in December 2013 (trust me when I say, the hype is real!). The Naked Original and the Naked 2 palettes have been around for a lot longer, but still, the Naked 3 Palette is a favourite amongst beauty lovers all over the world. I started out with the original Naked palette back in 2013 (I bought it on Beauty Bay) and was so impressed with the quality, pigmentation and buttery smooth eyeshadow formula, that I ended up purchasing the Naked 2 and Naked 3 as soon as I had enough money saved up.
Today I have something rather special planned for you – I’m giving away a gorgeous Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette! Do you feel butterflies in your tummy yet…? I know I do! I usually like to do a review of the actual prize as part of the giveaway blog post, but since I’ve already reviewed it, we’re just going to jump right in to the giveaway. To check out my review (including swatches) of the Urban Naked 3 Palette, click below:
Speaking of which…if you read my ‘Urban Decay Is Coming To South Africa’ blog post, then you probably already know the first Urban Decay store is opening on the 9th of July 2016. For additional information on exactly where the store will be, as well as product pricing, click below:
Here are a couple of words I use to describe Urban Decay eyeshadows: Soft, buttery, pigmented, blendable, intense, top quality. I don’t think I will EVER find an eyeshadow formula that I love as much as an Urban Decay eyeshadow. If you own a Naked Palette, then you know exactly what I’m talking about!
Eeeeep! Just look at those eyeshadow shades… *swoon*
I have something VERY special planned starting next month – since I own the Naked Original, Naked 2, Naked 3, and Naked Smoky palettes, I am going to start a little series of makeup tutorial videos using each palette. Bear with me, please, I recently bought professional studio lights, cleared out our spare bedroom, and repainted the walls because I want to turn it into a type of ‘filming room’. I haven’t been filming much these past few months because the weather has been a big problem for me (cloudy weather means I can’t film) and then a couple of weeks ago my camera decided to spontaneously switch off every time I started to film a video. Anyway, my lights are set up and my camera has been fixed, now I just have to sort out my camera settings so that my videos don’t look too washed out (the studio lights are VERY bright, so I need to fiddle with the settings a little bit).
So, you can look forward to seeing Urban Decay Naked (Original, 2, 3, and Smoky) tutorials on my YouTube channel soon. I initially wanted to give this palette away as part of my Naked 3 makeup tutorial, but Urban Decay South Africa was SO excited about their upcoming store opening, they asked me to post the giveaway this week already. I definitely want to give another palette away when I start with my makeup tutorial videos, soooo I might just save up some money to buy an additional palette for another giveaway.
Let’s get to exciting part, shall we? As mentioned, I have an Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette to give away to one lucky Pink Peonies blog reader. The eyeshadow palette box contains the following products:
♥ 1 x Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
♥ 1 x Urban Decay Double-ended Eyeshadow Brush
♥ 4 x Urban Decay Primer Potion Samples
To enter, all you have to do is complete your chosen entries via the Rafflecopter widget below. Simple and easy! If you are not sure how to use the widget below, take a look at this blog post (I cover a ‘How To’ towards the end of the post).

So I’ve added another option for you to RETWEET my giveaway tweet (the one with the photo). See below:
