URBAN DECAY NAKED HEAT PALETTE* – It’s the palette of the Summer, and it’s HERE. The blogging community has gone wild for this new eyeshadow palette from those clever folk over at Urban Decay, with photos of it popping up everywhere in the past few weeks. UD are known for dropping bombs in the beauty world, and making all of us lose our shit, basically. This is because their products are generally always high quality, innovative and exciting. Whether you like them or not, most people seem to agree that the quality of their palettes especially; is amazing.
So when they revealed this new warm toned, rich eyeshadow palette as part of their Naked series; I personally squealed with delight! I love having a whole range of colours in my makeup collection, but I have definitely found that I suit warmer tones more. I have a shade or two here and there, in a variety of palettes, that are my go to when wanting to reach for golds, oranges, reds, burned umbers. However I don’t have one complete palette based on this need. Until Naked Heat that is.
The palette consists of 12 shades, in both matte and shimmer finishes, ranging from light to dark colours. From delicious browns to glimmering coppers; there’s a fantastic range that Urban Decay have managed to pack into one complete product.
So what do I think of it?
Well I’ve only been using this a few days, so these are only my first impressions; please bear in mind. I’ll be taking another look at this palette after a month or so of full use, really getting to know each shade, and how well they work together. However, I can already say I’m pretty damn impressed!
Urban Decay are known for amazing pigmentation within their products, and this one doesn’t disappoint. One swoop of my eyeshadow brush and the product is packed on, and applies across my eyelid easily; with a striking look made super easy, with a fantastic payoff. You don’t have to work hard with these shades to create the look you need, it makes it effortless to create your look.
Im really happy with the range of shades included, however I do wish I could make one slight change. See those first two lighter shades to the left (‘Ounce’ and ‘Chaser’)? Well as you can see, they’re pretty pointless on my skin, almost identically matching. I know I’ll use these as a base in this case, but I’d have loved every single shade to be a winner for me. Ideally, I’d have LOVED a really light glimmering gold, or a super pure white.
In the whole of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, my favourite shades are ‘Lumbre’; a beautiful copper shimmer with gold shift, ‘Scorched’; a deep metallic red/gold, and ‘Ember’; a deep, dark metallic burgundy/copper. Each are absolutely incredible, the colour payoff is wonderful, and they’re now my go-to shades. I will however note that Ember is likely to have more fallout upon application, so keep this in mind.
Overall I am overjoyed and totally in love with this palette; it’s absolutely my favourite of all the Naked releases so far! I love this because I know my own preferences well, and I know that I’ll be using this on a daily basis; so the price is absolutely worth it for me. I was kindly sent this palette for review, but I know it’s something I’d be happy to budget for in the future. However, I would advise you guys take a moment to consider how often you wear warm tones, and what your personal preferences are. If you’re after a warmer palette to give you HOT looks this Summer; then you need the Urban Decay Naked Heat, TODAY; so keep an eye out on the Urban Decay website.
Keep an eye out for upcoming makeup looks used with this palette, I have so much planned and I’m really excited to share the possibilities with these shades! 🙂
