Urban Decay Naked Heat Review!

On Monday the 12th, Urban Decay released a limited amount of their new Naked Heat palettes; a month or two ahead of its official release. As you can imagine this caused blind panic, and everybody chucking their money towards Urban Decay.

This palette is extremely different to the ones before it (colour wise), as you can see from the picture. It is full of burnt oranges/ burgundy’s and coppers. I feel like it’s so on trend, because these are the colours that everyone seems to be loving at the minute, so it’s kind of no brainer to make a palette full of these colours.

The first thing that got me with this palette is the change of box, I was looking for something to open where as it pushes out to reveal the palette inside. Which seems really modern, as I’ve not had a palette come in this type of packaging before. The brush inside has slightly changed too, it’s still double-sided, but one side is now a dense blending brush, which isn’t my favourite, but it’s useful.

The packaging of the palette is the exact same as the Naked Smokey.It has a huge mirror, and is plastic, so it’s quite heavy.

There are seven mattes and six shimmers, and I like the balance of the two, as a palette that is filled with mostly one or the other can be limiting.

The Swatches:

(Left to Right: Ounce, Chaser, Sauced and Low Blow)

Ounce: Very light golden beige with a soft pearl shimmer

Chaser: Light nude matte with peach undertones

Sauced: Terracotta matte

Low Blow: Warm matte brown with orange undertones

(Left to Right: Lumbre, He Devil, Dirty Talk and Scorched)

Lumbre: Copper, rose gold metallic with warm undertones

He Devil: Burnt Red matte with warm undertones

Dirty Talk: Metallic Copper brown with warm orange undertones

Scorched: Metallic dark brown with red undertones

(Left to Right: Cayenne, En Fuego, Ashes and Ember)

Cayenne: Deep Terracotta matte

En Fuego: Deep Burgundy matte

Ashes: Deep Purple with muted brown undertones (I find the formula of this one not to be as good as the others, it’s very firm and hard to apply)

Ember: Deep metallic warm brown

There is fallout, but I find it easy to sweep it away so it isn’t a problem for me. The formula is great, but the last four are a little dry which makes them slightly harder to use. They all last amazingly once applied.

So is this my new all time favourite Naked Palette? No, not it isn’t. It is a close second, as I have been loving creating different kind of looks with this.

A great thing about this palette is that it is marketed towards Summer, but I also think you can carry the colours over to the Autumn, so it isn’t one of this products that gets pushed to the back of the draw for a year. If the red shadow trend dies then this palette may become a bit of joke, but as of now, it’s extremely on trend.

Will you be purchasing this palette when it is officially released?

Thank you for reading!

  2. Brynnie says:

    The palette looks so pretty! Especially the shimmer shades (lumbre and scorched look amazing)! Lovely post xx Brynnie


  3. Nikita says:

    The shades look so stunning and I feel like they would suit a lot of people. Thanks for sharing as I was looking forward to seeing the swatches! x Nikita

  4. I’ve been contemplating this palette because like you said, the colours are so on trend, and perfect for Summer time with all those sunset shades. However that’s a shame with the brush because I actually do like the ones in my other naked palettes! There’s nothing worse than a couple of dryer formulas in the naked palettes, I do have 2 shades that are like that in naked 3 xx


    • luxuryblush says:

      I hope this has helped you to make your mind up! It is definitely on trend! Yeah, I’m unsure why they decided to change it, it would be a lot better if it wasn’t so dense. The last three matte shades especially are just so dry, which is a shame as it makes them harder to work with!xx

  5. This palette is absolutely gorgeous – the shades look so pigmented. Great Post X

    It looks gorgeous and the pigmentation is fab! If I could justify spending the money on it I would but I have so many palettes with similar shades lol x


  7. Katie says:

    I like that they included more mattes in this palette! Great review, the swatches of it look amazing x

  8. Ronnie says:

    I can’t get over how gorgeous this palette is.. the pigmentation as well is amazing! I’m really trying to convince myself that I don’t need this palette but it’s so pretty!


  9. Morgan says:

    I’ve seen this swatch poorly for some people (and on darker skintones) which is a shame, but I love the colours in it! It’s definitely on my list…

      I’ve seen those too, but from what I’ve seen it’s great other than the last three mattes which are a little dry; it is a shame that it doesn’t seem to cater to darker skin tones!xx

  10. Liz says:

    This palette is SO beautiful!

    xo, Liz

  11. This pallet is seriously stunning! I’m loving all the shades, UD have really done amazing with my this one.

    I think this palette is beautiful! I know we talked on twitter and you said that the first one is your favorite! While I like this palette, I agree with you, it’s not the best they’ve had. If I were to buy a new palette at the moment it might be the original naked palette! I loved reading your opinion on this and am glad to hear you love it xxx

    • luxuryblush says:

      It really is a stunning palette! This palette is great, but I feel like sometimes red isn’t really an everyday colour, and it might not be everybody’s first choice, so it feels safer to revert back to the original which seems like a classic! Thank you xx

  13. I am a big fan of Urban Decay but I have so many Naked palettes I’m not sure if I need this one, although I’ll probably end up buying it haha!

    Beautiful review! I think this palette will sell out pretty fast, because as you’ve mentioned, it’s so on trend. Great job UD xx

  15. Amy says:

    I love this palette, I think it’s my favourite one yet, or a very close second to the original one.

  16. Velvet Blush says:

    I really love the second set of swatches you did, those shades are lovely! I’m not sure how much wear I would get out of the rest of the shades though, so I probably won’t be purchasing it but I do think it would be nice for people who like to experiment with eyeshadow more.

    P.S. I was excited to see the swatches though, and this is the first review of the palette I read! xx

    • luxuryblush says:

      They’re so gorgeous! It is definitely a palette for those who love their reds, burgandy’s and rose golds! I don’t blame you, seeing the swatches is the best! Thank you xx

  17. Kristen says:

    Those shimmery shades are giving me life! Thank you for your review, it definitely helped me decide!


  18. Alice says:

    The colours are fab in this palette but I just can’t justify the price tag when I already have the Morphe 350 and the Violet Voss HG which have super similar shades! I think Urban Decay are slightly over pricing their palettes now when there are brands around that do palettes with a lot more pigment, bigger range and a lot cheaper! I do really want to try their new contour palette though, looks like a winner!
    Alice Xx

    • luxuryblush says:

      Yeah, this palette isn’t the first red toned one, and it certainly won’t be the last! I think this ones over priced because people will pay it, so they’re making more money which is a winner for them, but not everyone is going to love it, but I definitely agree with you! That palette sounds great!xx

  19. Libby Horner says:

    These colours look super pigmented, but I can’t help but notice this palette is similar to a lot of smoky/nude/autumnal palettes.

    Great post, though!


  20. Tanya says:

    So glad for this post! These colours are right up me street! I definitely need to add this to my collection now!

    With love, Tanya x

  21. Bernadette says:

    I love the look of the shades in this palette!


  22. Kathryn says:

    I’m so in love with mine! I managed to find a cheaper dupe which I blogged about in case people couldn’t get it!

  23. Liv says:

    I need this pallette in my life!! The colours are definitely my cup of tea, they’re beautiful xx

  24. Kiran says:

    Definitely on trend and it looks gorgeous, but I have so many shadows similar that it would be pointless for me to buy it. If I didn’t have these shades already I would definitely get it, I love Urban Decay shadows and their palettes are top notch. Fantastic review and swatches, thank you for sharing xxx

      It is such a beautiful palette, and definitely on trend! Yeah, it isn’t the first palette to have this colour scheme, and I doubt it will be the last! Thank you lovely, and thank you for reading!xx

  25. Alex says:

    The colors are so pretty ! I guess it will be my first Urban Decay palette.

  26. Kiya says:

    This palette is gorgeous! X

  29. I think I’m the only person that doesn’t want this palette lol! The colors just aren’t doing it for me πŸ™

  30. Emily says:

    Great review! I’ve heard so much talk about this palette recently and I think I might look into buying it! I love the colours, I feel like they would really suit my blue eyes! However, like you said, my only concern is the fact that the red/orange eyeshadow trend might die down soon. Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

    • luxuryblush says:

      Thank you! I have blue eyes too, and they do really go together! That’s true, it is a lovely palette it just depends how long this red trend sticks around! No problem, thank you for reading and you too lovely!xx

  31. This palette looks like a lovely range of colours but I already have very similar hues in a few other palettes. I’ve had NAKED palettes before and loved them so I can imagine this one was a hot commodity.

  32. Nathalie says:

    This palette is absolutely stunning! Never bought the other naked palettes but i love how warm the colors are in this palette. I might to pick it and see for myself. Thanks for sharing.


  33. Khadija says:

    This palette looks soooo amazing! The colours are just so pretty and the pigmentation is to die for! I need to get my hands on this. Atleast Urban Decay have changed it up

  37. Katie says:

    To me this palette looks totally great for summer AND fall. I’ve always been all over these palettes in the past, and even though oranges and reds are not the best on me, I bet I will find this rounding out my collection soon enough ;P


    • luxuryblush says:

      It really is, Red is such a good colour for both! It’s definitely one of those that you think you won’t get, but it somehow finds its way into your collection haha!xx

  38. This palette looks amazing and so up my alley. You’ve convinced me, I need it! Loved this post.
