Urban Decay Naked HEAT - Review


Summer just got hotter with the brand new Naked Palette! 12 brand new neutrals with added heat, for me and all you warm tone lovers this is a dream come true and I have been all over the hype. Filled with warm browns, burnt oranges and the 4 shimmering shades which will add every ounce of glam to a sultry day time or a smokey evening look and everything in between. Out of all the Naked palettes I love the shade range the most throughout the heat, every shade can be used together and they have been created to look flattering on every skin tone. After swatching the palette I am most excited to use the shades 'He Devil', ' Scorched' and 'Ashes'. 

The packaging of the palette is so thought out and creative and something that I really look into when I get new makeup products. It will certainly stand out in any collection. The casing is plastic, similar to the 'smokey'! I prefer this as it feels more protective and robust, along with a huge mirror which makes this the perfect travel companion and with the shade range it will be perfect for any summer trips away. The artwork on the front of the case is like looking through blinds at a sunset which is incredible and unique. The box it arrives in opens like a match box with 12 burnt matches printed on that go along with the shades in the palette. Every inch of this release ties together perfectly. The shadows do come with a double ended brush which is similar to those previously. I do find that they are useful when it comes to blending, you can never have too many brushes!


Every shade in Naked Heat is extremely buttery/velvety which means that they all blend out with rich colours and pigmentation. The glimmer shades have gorgeous pigmentation which also means that they have a slight fallout but that is usually expected! I have done some swatches on my arm to show you the variety of shades on skin. This is done with a finger swatch so they could look different when using brushes. I am so impressed with the intensity of the shades.
