As you all probably already know by now, I absolutely love the Naked Palettes from Urban Decay!
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
What Urban Decay says about the Palette: “From a super-smooth red-brown matte and a glimmering copper to a deep, shifty bronze, this palette has everything you need to create sultry daytime looks, intensely smoky nighttime looks and everything in between.“
The quality of the Naked Heat Palette is just as good as any other palettes that I own form Urban Decay (Naked 2, Naked 3 und Naked Basics). No surprises here!
Unlike with the other Naked Palettes, the packaging from the Naked Heat goes more into the plastic direction. Yeah, sure, I know, the Naked 2 and 3 also have packaging made off of plastic, but they have a look and a certain feel of metal or at least a plastic/metal mix. This one, however, definitely only feels like plastic – which in no way is a bad thing!
The colors of the packaging also fit perfectly with the eyeshadows inside and go more into the warmer tones – exactly like the name “Heat”!
Lets get into the colors
The colors of the Naked Heat Palette are all extremely beautiful – or else I would not have bought it. When it comes to the eyeshadows, the Naked Heat hat more matte shadows than any other (except of course the Naked Basics, which only has matte eyeshadows). There are a total of seven matte eyeshadows: Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow, He Devil, Cayenne, En Fuego and Ashes. The remaining coors Ounce, Lumbre, Dirty Talk, Scorched and Ember are all shimmery and Scorched even has micro-glitter.
Though the colors go into the warmer spectrum of things, I don’t find them to be too warm! I would even say Chaser, Sauced and Low Blog are more on the neutral side of things. That’s why I think the palette can be used by different types of people, with different types of skin colors. I have more of a cool skin tone, with neutral undertones, and extreme colors definitely don’t look good on me – like extra cool or extra warm colors. On the other side, I can use the Naked Heat Palette very well, because I can mix cooler tones such as Sauced, with warmer tones like Scorched.
My final thoughts
I think the Naked Heat Palette from Urban Decay is the ideal “sibling” of my Naked 2 and 3. The colors go perfectly together and you can create very cool and out there looks, or go with a decent look during the day. I don’t have a favorite color yet, but how could I even choose one with so many gorgeous colors?
