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.
Now onto what may people’s favourite part; 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?
