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!

    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

      I think they will too, they’re really pretty! No problem, thank you for reading!xx

    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


    • 18th June 2017 / 8:52 pm

      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

  4. 18th June 2017 / 8:56 pm

    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


    • 19th June 2017 / 3:52 pm

      The pigment really is great, yeah this definitely isn’t the first red themed palette and it certainly won’t be the last xx

  6. 19th June 2017 / 2:02 am

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

    • 19th June 2017 / 3:55 pm

      Yeah, they’ve definitely got a really great balance of mattes and shimmers! Thank you, and the pigment is great!xx

    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!


    • 19th June 2017 / 3:56 pm

      It really is a gorgeous palette! Haha, it is definitely one of those, I couldn’t hack it though!xx

  8. 19th June 2017 / 2:53 am

    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

    • 19th June 2017 / 3:58 pm

      It really is a stunning palette xx

  9. 19th June 2017 / 3:07 am

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

      They really have, it is gorgeous xx

  10. 19th June 2017 / 4:41 am

    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

      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

    • 19th June 2017 / 4:02 pm

      Urban Decay have some really great palettes! This one is such a welcome addition compared to the others because it’s so different xx

  11. 19th June 2017 / 7:13 am

    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

    • 19th June 2017 / 4:03 pm

      Thank you! It definitely will, it just depends how long we’re all loving red for! They’ve done such a good job with it xx

  12. 19th June 2017 / 3:06 pm

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

      It is such a beautiful palette, and it’s definitely up there as one of the better Naked palettes xx

    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

    • 19th June 2017 / 6:52 pm

      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

    • 19th June 2017 / 4:57 pm

      They’re so pretty! No problem, thank you for reading and I’m glad it’s helped you!xx

  14. 19th June 2017 / 5:19 pm

    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!

    • 19th June 2017 / 6:54 pm

      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

    • 19th June 2017 / 10:10 pm

      Yeah this palette definitely isn’t the first of its kind, and I doubt it will be the last! Thank you xx

  15. 19th June 2017 / 9:33 pm

    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

    • 19th June 2017 / 10:13 pm

      Thank you! It is such a beautiful palette xx

    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!

      It’s so good isn’t it?! That’s so good, as this definitely isn’t the first red themed palette and it certainly won’t be the last xx

  17. 20th June 2017 / 9:41 am

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

    • 20th June 2017 / 1:34 pm

      It is such a gorgeous palette xx

  18. 20th June 2017 / 2:13 pm

    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 definitely seems like a great palette for both seasons, which is a winner!xx

  22. 22nd June 2017 / 5:33 am

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

    • 22nd June 2017 / 8:37 pm

      Aw no! That’s understandable though, not every palette is going to appeal to everybody xx

  23. 23rd June 2017 / 3:53 am

    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!

    • 23rd June 2017 / 11:06 am

      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

  24. 23rd June 2017 / 5:06 am

    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.

    • 23rd June 2017 / 11:07 am

      Yeah, this palette definitely isn’t the first red toned one and it certainly won’t be the last! That’s so true xx

  25. 23rd June 2017 / 7:58 am

    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.


    • 23rd June 2017 / 11:08 am

      It really is!I hope you love it, if you do manage to pick it up!xx

    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

    • 23rd June 2017 / 5:27 pm

      It really is a stunning palette! That’s true xx

    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


    • 1st July 2017 / 10:14 am

      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

    • 7th July 2017 / 12:56 pm

      It is such a stunning palette! I hope you love it!xx
