Urban Deacy Naked 3 Palette Review

I realized I hadn't a review of the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I know that the Naked 3 Palette has been out for a while now and almost everyone has done their own review of the palette but because this is one of my all time favourite palettes, I felt I needed to do my own review.
The packaging of the palette is very similar to the Naked 2 Palette but it's rose gold and has a wavy texture. Like the other Urban Decay Naked Palettes there are 12 shadows mostly shimmery with a few mattes. The quality of Urban Decay Shadows are always my favourites, very pigmented, buttery and blendable. The brush that comes with this palette is also very usable. I especially like the fluffy end of this brush.
There were two shades in this palette that I thought were below average. Dust has so much glittery fallout and no real pigmentation. I also had trouble with the pigmentation of Trick. Although there is some fallout with the shade Buzz it is buttery and pigmented so I can still make it work.
Now for my favourite shades. I'm picky about highlights but I really like the highlight shade Strange in this palette. It's matte and bright enough to actually show up on my skin. I also really like the two other matte shades in this palette Limit and Nooner. However my overall favourite shade in the palette is Liar, it's a beautiful satin mauve colour.
