Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette - Review, Photos and Swatches
I'm turning up the heat today with Urban Decay's hottest release this summer. The Naked Heat Palette launched earlier this month and has been on a social media frenzy ever since. This has been the most anticipated Naked palette thus far. So, of course, I had to check it out for myself to share my review with my readers. Kindly keep scrolling to see my thoughts as well as swatches. I also filmed a swatch and eye look video which you can see below if you would prefer to skip to the bottom of this post.
The Naked Heat Palette retails for $66 CAD and $54 USD and is available for sale at Sephora, Ulta and Urbandecay.com. The palette comes in a pull-out sleeve that has all the shades illustrated on the cover as well as the back. The palette has a metallic orange and red design on the outside and contains a full sized mirror on the inside. The plastic packaging itself is sturdy and is on the bulky side. It comes with a dual-sided blending brush which I quite like.
The palette features 12 brand new shades in orange and amber hues. There is a mixture of matte and shimmer shades that are perfect for creating sultry daytime looks as well as smokey night time looks. This is definitely a warm tone palette, which I adore. I just love wearing burnt oranges and siennas in the crease. All of the shades are very pigmented and creamy. I was surprised at the quality of the lighter cream/beige shades (Ounce, Chaser and Sauced) as those shades tend to appear dry with very little to no pigmentation on my tan skin complexion. This was not the case with the above mention shades. One thing that the Naked Heat is not short on, is the amount of matte crease colour choices. Shades He Devil, Cayenne and En Fuego are my favourite crease options. Low Blow also makes a great transition shade. The matte shades blend well but some better than others. There are also a few shimmer shades in this palette which is a must in any palette for me. I feel I need stronger shimmers but a good primer and fix + definitely help the metallics to shine. Lumbre and Scorched are amongst my top picks from this palette.
OUNCE (ivory shimmer)
CHASER (light nude matte)
SAUCED (soft terra-cotta matte)
LOW BLOW (brown matte)
LUMBRE (copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift)
HE DEVIL (burnt red matte)
DIRTY TALK (metallic burnt red)
SCORCHED (metallic deep red w/gold micro-shimmer)
CAYENNE (deep terra-cotta matte)
EN FUEGO (burgundy matte)
ASHES (deep reddish-brown matte)
EMBER (deep metallic copper-burgundy)
I absolutely think this palette is a must have if you like warm tones. I don't have anything like this in my collection and it makes a great addition. The colour range is suitable for many skin tones. I don't own any of the previous Naked palettes to compare this one too but I'm truly impressed. The shades remind me of fall colours but I will be using this palette all year round. Some shades are dupable and similar to each other however I don't have a cohesive palette with so many amber hued shades. I'm ok with using other palettes or pigments in combination with the Naked Heat to create more versatile looks if need be. But for now, it's just perfect!
