Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette : Swatches + Review

If you have missed the news, Urban Decay has released a brand new Naked Palette! The Naked Heat and boy is it beautiful! If you have always wanted to create a smoky sunset on your eyelid, well now is the time! The was a pre release on Mecca's website yesterday morning, so if you missed out I thought I would share my thoughts with you in case you are still on the fence about it. 






Give in to the dark side and get hooked on this on-trend take on the classic neutrals. Loaded with an assortment of amber-toned shades, this seriously lust-worthy palette is equipped with every warm hue you need to create endless eye looks. Get ready to lose your mind over red-browns, deep bronzes, burnt oranges and multi-dimensional copper in an array of matte, shimmer and metallic finishes. Opt for understated with a wash of warm brown or amp up the intensity with a super sultry, smoked out look.

 I have never owned an Urban Decay palette, or really any UD at all (I DON'T KNOW WHY, DON'T YELL AT ME!) but this palette has definitely made me question why I have never owned anything from them before, because this palette is heaven.








Let's start with the packaging - it's a weighty palette, but a good quality kind of weightiness (if you know what I mean). A lot of people have said that it is very similar to the Smokey Palette, which I haven't seen, so I can't comment! They have just nailed the outside, with the warm amber-tones taking focus. One of my favourite things about this palette is actually the brush. I am used to those padded brushes that are awful, which I always throw away. This brush is a double ended fluffy brush that is not only beautiful and soft, but oh so practical (I am always won over by practicality). 


Now I wouldn't describe these tones as 'naked tones', but they fit the heat concept so well and are so gorgeous that I ain't complaining. I think there is a really good mix of matte and shimmer shades in this palette. I don't know about you, but I like to have a bit of a mix in my palettes, I don't like to have all matte or all shimmer, I need a bit of both! There are about 8 matte and 4 shimmer. I have found them to be extremely pigmented and easy to apply with either a brush or fingers, whatever your jam is). They are creamy and feel like velvet, I am seriously in love.

Let's appreciate for a moment, how bad my blending is in this eye look. However 'He Devil' looks gorgeous on the eyes haha so ignore the awful blending and just appreciate the colours!




Not only do I think these are all brilliant on their own, but it would be the perfect companion to a darker smoky palette, such as the UD Smokey Palette.The main reason I decided to pick it up was because it was so different to anything I own, so it fit's perfectly into my make up collection.  

Will you be picking up the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette? xx

  1. That look is stunning on you! Those colours are a great combo, they look lovely on you. I think I will get it because having owned the others I know how amazing the quality will be, and these colours from the Heat palette are definitely my kind of warm tones so I can use them a lot. I love that theres dark shades for a easy smokey eye look ��

  7. You created such a gorgeous look with this palette! It's a gorgeous palette but a little too much on the warm side for my skin tone unfortunately!

    1. You are too kind! Thank you! I was hesitant to buy it, and I think if I had a palette similar I wouldn't need this one, but it was so different to anything I own that I could justify it! xx

  10. So pretty - I adore the packaging! I think this is my favourite of the Naked palettes, but I won't be picking it up since I have so many similar shades already. I'm a sucker for those warm tones! Every one should have at least one UD palette though haha! I've got the Naked 3 which is still pretty unique in my collection!
