Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review

This is one of those eyeshadow palette that screams “GET ME NOW!”. The packaging is awesome. I’ve never seen any packaging as cool as this one. The colour combination is wearable and there is a mixture or warm and cool tone. Everyone can use this palette whether you are fair or dark skin. If you have been using any Urban Decay eyeshadow before, you know that UD makes high quality eyeshadows. I don’t see why you should resist getting one for yourself.

The packaging is different from the previous Naked Palette. It has a metal base and plastic cover. Looks some sort like a glass window. The overall material is made of plastic and metal which is sturdy and looks extremely good.

Let’s get into the swatches because that is what gets everyone excited.

Ounce - Ounce is a subtle shimmer white which is good for highlighting the inner corner of your eyes and underneath the brow bone.

Chaser - Chase is close to the skin tone. I love to use this as a base. It also serves as a transitional color if you're going for a dark color to light color.

Sauced - This shade resembles wood brown. It is also a transitional color.

Low Blow - Low Blow is a darker version of Sauced and it can use to create depth on the eyelid. You can use this as a contour shade as well.

Lumbre - Lumbre is an extremely beautiful color. It is a salmon pink with gold shimmer. The combination kills me. This shade reminds me of Candied Peach from the Too Faced Peach Palette.

He Devil - I don't fancy the name of this shade but this shade is so pretty. You can hardly find any eyeshadow that can be worn by itself - and this is the one which is perfectly ok to wear on your eyelid on its own.

Dirty Talk - Dirty Talk is a orange shimmer that reflects as warm copper tone.

Scorched - Is a copper tone. When applied lightly, it does resemble rose gold.

Cayenne - Is very similar to the Tarlette in Bloom palette Rebel. It is a chocolate milk shade.

En Fuego - Also has a dupe in the Tarlette in Bloom palette. It is similar to Leader. It is a brunette color.

Ashes - Of all the eyeshadows in this palette, Ashes has the worst quality. It appears chalky and patchy. It is a tree bark color. I'm pretty disappointed with this one.

Ember - Ember is an old rusty gold shade. The pigmentation and color pay-off is extremely satisfying. However, when removing it, I notice that there is a dark blue/black base. It appears to be hard to remove unless you use makeup wipes or oil-based remover.

As usual the Urban Decay palette comes with a duo ended brush. These brush are high quality brushes and useful for traveling.

Overall I love the palette. However, I also think that the shades aren't that special. There's no new shade that caught my eyes other than Lumbre. If you already have a few neutral brown shade palette, you won't miss it if you skip this one. If you don't have one, you should invest in this. It has all the cool and warm tone, a mixture of matte and shimmer and it has all the shades to create almost any look you want. The left side of the colors are also very easy to wear for daily look.

I have been advocating Urban Decay eyeshadow for awhile now. I wonder if any of you do pick up the eyeshadow to try it yourself? After I tried all the eyeshadows, the Urban Decay one is good even without primer. It lasts long, blends well and don't wear off after a sweaty hot day. Because of that I really like the quality of the eyeshadow.
