Urban Decay has expanded their famous Naked Palette line by introducing the Naked Heat Palette. This palette is packed with amber-toned neutral shades, including warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas. I’m going to give all the details about the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette in today’s post.
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette contains twelve all new shades, so no repeats of any permanent shades. According to the brand, this palette has everything you need to create sultry daytime looks, intensely smoky nighttime looks and everything in between.
The palette comes in a cardboard sleeve that shows information regarding the palette. I LOVE the artwork on the packaging, it already looks so luxurious and smoking hot, also that it includes images of the actual eyeshadows so that you can really see the texture up close without having to see them, perfect for when there’s not a tester around.
The packaging gets even more awesome. Removing the sleeve reveals the palette and on the sleeve itself, a picture of matches burned up. I can’t say this enough but I’m obsessed with small details like this. Every little part of this palette is just a party for the eyes.
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is made of hard and sturdy plastic with a warm, copper shade. The packaging reminds me more of the Naked Smokey Palette than the other Naked palettes. The back is very simple but the front of the palette is just mesmerizing. It looks like the palette has been burned like how metallic materials shift when burned. It looks so friggin’ awesome and luxurious, I can’t stop staring at it!
Like the other Naked palettes (excluding the Basics), this includes a full-size mirror and a double-ended brush. The eyeshadows are all in their separate, rectangular pans and contain 1.3 grams of product of each shade.
The double-ended brush has a Blending Brush end and a Detailed Crease Brush end. The Blending Brush is according to the brand, perfect for seamless blending. The Detailed Crease Brush can be used to get a precise application in the crease. I always like the brushes that come with the naked palettes, they feel soft and are of high-quality.
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette contains twelve all new shades. The shades are described as follows:
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)
As you can see, there are many different finishes for the eyeshadows in this palette. All of them feel great and swatch beautifully. What’s also noticeable is that there are a lot of matte shades in here, which is fairly strange for an Urban Decay palette. Usually, they’re full of shimmery, metallic shades which sometimes even contain chunky glitters. Matte are usually difficult to get right, but these ones are just gorgeous.
For this look, I used the shades Chaser all over the lid, Sauced as a transition shade, Cayenne in the crease and on the lower lid, Scorched all over the lid, Ashes in the outer V and Ounce as an inner corner highlight.
The eyeshadows all blended so easily and smoothly, no patchiness or unevenness whatsoever. There isn’t much kick-up of powder when applying the shadow on the brush but there is slight fallout, which can easily be prevented by tapping off the brush.
I’m really obsessed with the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I love warm-toned neutral eyeshadow looks and this one is one of the best ones I have seen so far. The quality of all the shades are amazing. The only thing that I have to say is that some shades look VERY similar. They look different in swatches but they almost look the same on the eyes like the shades Sauced and Low Blow or Dirty Talk and Scorched. I’m also not sure about the variation of different looks you can create with this palette, but I probably haven’t played enough with it and I’m also not super creative when it comes to eyelooks.
Overall, I find the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette a MUST for everyone who likes warm toned nude shades, even though there are plenty of them on the market, this one is a must-have due to the amazing quality of the shades and if you’re a packaging lover like I am, it’s just a joy to look at when used.
