Urban Decay Naked 1,2 or 3?

I know there are alot of posts floating around on these but instead of looking at just one i thought i should compare them all so you can see what these lovely looking eye shadows look like next to each other, and if you haven't got your hands on one of these yet (and want to) maybe i can help you decide.
The Urban Decay Naked palettes have so much hype around them and I'm a sucker for a hype and that's how i ended up with my first one, i fell in love with the shade range and finishes from mattes, shimmers and metallic they are truly beautiful and that's probably why i ended up with all 3...did i need them all? probably not but i couldn't resist.
The shadows have great lasting power without creasing  (even better with primer) near enough all the shades are nice and pigmented i cant rate them enough really.

T-B Naked 1, Naked 2, Naked 3

Urban Decay Naked 1 

This is my favourite out of the 3 and the one i go to most, i just think it suits me the most and the colours are gorgeous, this palette is mostly full of lovely bronze/ metallic shades.
You will have to excuse the state of the packaging i have had this for over 2 years now and the case its in isn't the best out of the three as its less sturdy (so not the best for travelling) and the velvet coating clings to all sorts muck but most annoyingly the writing rubs off the front..this case is also magnetised shut so can willy nilly fling open.
But its what inside that counts right?!

L-R Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked

L-R Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal
My favourite shades from the Naked 1 has to be Sin, Naked, Half Baked, Smog and Toasted, when i got this set it also came with a mini eyeshadow primer potion which i thought was great and inside the palette is a small flat brush which is pretty good and packs the shadows on your lid nicely.

Urban Decay Naked 2

This palette consists of lovely cool toned taupe eye shadows, this is probally most similar to the naked 1 than 3 is and it also has the same Half Baked shade which i guess can be annoying if you already have the 1st, but seen as it was one of my faves i didn't mind that.
This one comes in a sturdy strong clip - shut solid case which keeps so much better than Naked 1. 

L-R Foxy (pretty much non existent), Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite

L-R Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout

My Favourites From Naked 2 are Bootycall, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect. This pallete comes with a mini Urban Decay Lip Junkie gloss, which i don't thinks the best thing to get with it.. the primer potion with Naked 1 was a much better idea.
Inside the case you also get a double ended eyeshadow brush which i think is pretty good, one side packs on the shadow the other will blend.

Urban Decay Naked 3

This one i got for Christmas recently, and its quite a bit different from the other 2 as its going for more a pink toned range, its really pretty i wasn't sure on this at first as i never wear pink shades on my eyes but when i tried it for the first time the colours just work so nice together and looks more chic than i thought it would.
I have to say though there was a shade in this that stole my heart and it goes by the name Black Heart...Ive never come across such a unique shade its black with a sort of red/fuchsia glitters in it, its a beaut!
The packaging is also very similar to the Naked 2 just a slightly different embossed pattern.

L-R Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick.

L-R Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, Blackheart
 My Favourites from the Naked 3 palette are Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Factory, Blackheart. In this set you get 4 samples of different eye primers which is ok but you have to use them quick as they are ones you tear open so they will dry out.
Inside the pallete you get the same brush as you do in the 2nd one a double ended packer and blend brush.

Which Naked is your favourite? Do you own any Naked pallets?
