Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

I was pretty damn proud of myself when i managed to get hold of the Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette in the presale because I'm never that lucky, ever. I did really hope to have this post up earlier before everyone starts rolling their eyes over the same review popping up time and time again but the day i was hoping to be posting this, i felt i hadn't used it enough and it seemed silly and dishonest to upload it early without testing it properly.

Just like pretty much everyone else, i got very over excited when i saw discovered this was the next Naked Palette to be released - i really like warm toned eyeshadows and everything about this palette appealed to me. I love all of my Naked Palettes and instantly knew that this one had to join my collection. The tones of this palette remind me a bit of the Zoeva Cocoa Blend as they both have rich, chocolately warm toned eyeshadow.

I feel like the packaging of each Naked Palette keeps getting better and better - the Naked Smokey packaging is still my absolutely favourite as it's just stunning - but the orange-y/red tones of the packaging really suit the theme of this palette, it represents heat and summer perfectly. Saying that though, i definitely think this range of shades would be just as stunning to wear during Autumn/Winter.

The pigmentation of the eyeshadows are amazing - just look at the swatch photo, the matte shades especially are so intense. I've never been good at swatch photos and i made it even more difficult for myself by getting a tattoo on the wrist i use but just look at the pigmentation of the swatches that covers the tattoo, they're practically opaque.

The palette comes with 12 shades (7 mattes and 5 shimmers) - Ounce (Ivory Shimmer), Chaser (Light Nude Matte), Sauced (Soft Terracotta Matte), Low Blow (Brown Matte), Lumbre (Copper Shade with Gold Pearl Shift), He Devil (Burnt Red Matte), Dirty Talk (Metallic Burnt Red), Scorched (Metallic Deep Red with Gold Micro Shimmer), Cayenne (Deep Terracotta Matte), En Fuego (Burgundy Matte), Ashes (Deep Reddish Brown Matte) and Ember (Deep Metallic Copper Burgundy) - I've used the descriptions of the eyeshadows from Urban Decay's website so i hope they're helpful.

There's not a shade in this palette that i dislike or that i don't think I'll get use out of. They're all so beautifully, so pigmented and blend together beautiful. My personal favourite shades are Chaser, Lumbre, Scorched, En Fuego and Ashes - Ounce is also a really stunning brow bone highlight. There isn't a shade in this palette i don't like, i just find myself wearing this selection the most.

The only negative thing i will say about this palette is that i don't think this is an everyday palette and by that i mean, if you are someone who likes really simple, natural eye make up - its not as easy to get that kind of look from this palette. You definitely could create a subtle look with it but i feel like this is one of those palettes that you get carried away with and will always end up with a bolder eye than planned - not that, that's a bad thing but i don't think this would be suited to someone who like really simple eye make up - does that make sense?

Like all Urban Decay Naked Palettes, this retails for £39.50 - so it's not the cheapest of palettes, i personally think it's worth every penny. It's stunning, excellent quality and i have no doubt that i will get a lot of use out of this palette.

Will you be getting the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette when it's released?

  1. Oh wow the packaging on this palette is gorgeous! I've been seeing so much chatter about this palette, I didn't get the hype (I don't own any Naked palette) before but now I've seen it, it looks amazing. I don't think I'll be splashing on it, but I'll definitely be on the look out for a good dupe in the future! Fab post, lovely!

  2. I'm never disappointed by Urban Decay's Naked palettes and this one has to be the one I've been most excited for out of them all, I think! I'm definitely a warm-toned kind of girl when it comes to makeup, so I can see myself getting use out of every shade, which is unusual for me! Amazing review and swatches :)
