Urban Decay has done it again. They created a work of art of an eyeshadow palette which is equally as good as others (if not better) – Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. This product has been on my wishlist ever since it came out. I watched so many people do reviews and swatches and for so long I wished for it to be mine as well. Luckily for me, it came out just in time for my birthday and after leaving very obvious hints everywhere I was gifted this beautiful piece of makeup.
And I can’t not share my thoughts on it with you. If you’re thinking of buying one for yourself or others or just want to look at it and compare to other palettes – keep reading!
I am absolutely in love with the packaging itself and the idea behind it. Apart from its beautiful burnt glossy look, it was designed to imitate a box of matches. To enhance that the inside box has 12 matches photographed at the bottom, all at different stages of burning. The packaging just screams HEAT and FIRE when you look at it.
The palette itself is quite heavy due to a nice big mirror inside it. It’s always handy to have a mirror included especially when you want to get a closer look or make a more detailed makeup. It comes with a double-ended brush which is very soft and fluffy. It picks up the product better than my other brushes, but I don’t find it as good when it comes to blending it out. It’s still a very nice addition and I have been using it all the time to apply the eyeshadows.
The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette consists of 12 shades, 8 matte and 4 shimmery ones, ranging from light orange through reds and plum shades to dark brown. With their creamy consistency, the shades blend effortlessly to create every Autumnal look you can possibly imagine. Thanks to very high pigmentation of each rectangle you don’t need to use a lot of the product to achieve your desired look.
I adore every single shade in this palette. Just now, I’m writing this post with the swatches on my arm and I cannot get over just how perfect they are. Especially the shimmery shades – they are so full of sparkles!
Just see for yourself, don’t they just look amazing?
Thanks to my very pale skin tone and not-so-good lighting you can’t properly see the two lightest shade. Take my word for it, they’re there.
In the order from right to left :
Ounce – cream shade
Chaser – matte light nude
Sauced – matte
Low Blow – medium brown matte
Lumbre – peach shade with gold shimmer
He Devil – matte burnt red
Dirty Talk – shimmery burnt orange
Scorched – shimmery burnt red
Cayenne – matte burnt brown with orange shades (basically a shade of cayenne pepper)
En Fuego – matte plum brown
Ashes – matte brown
Ember – shimmery dark brown
I have been using it religiously every time I do my makeup. It’s perfect for both daytime looks and putting that extra edge to your look on a night out. It will definitely stay on your eyes for a very long time as well. I’ve got very sensitive eyes and as soon as I walk out they start watering. Normally, it makes it pointless for me to apply eye makeup because it ends up all over my face, but with Urban Decay Naked Heat palette it pretty much stayed intact. I didn’t see any creases on my eyelids after a whole day of wearing it and it didn’t smudge at all.
Many people complain about the lack of variety of shades. I understand what they mean because it is not necessarily an eyeshadow palette to use during spring or summer as the shades are very autumnal. But isn’t that the point of the whole palette? There’s a wide variety of eyeshadows perfect for every other season whilst Naked Heat will forever be associated with falling leaves and cosy nights in.
If you’ve got the budget for it, I would definitely recommend you to purchase this little beauty. I am very much in love with it and feel like it completed my makeup collection (for now at least).
