Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette First Impressions

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would do a first impressions on the new Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I bought mine about 5 days ago from the Debenhams website because I have a points card with them. It cost £39.50 which is a pretty hefty price for an eyeshadow palette. I know a lot of people have said that this isn’t a palette that people need especially people with large collections because its all warm shades. EVERYTHING I WANT IN LIFE IS AN ALL WARM PALETTE. I do not understand what the issue is with buying a palette full of shades you like and will use. I do not want to buy a palette like four blues, greens and purples in it I won’t use the bloody thing.

The palettes packaging is really sturdy and would be great for travelling. The Naked palettes have certainly developed as far as packaging is concerned over the years. I prefer the packaging on this one than my other Naked palettes because it looks like a lot more effort has gone into the packaging and it is a lot more decorative. The outside of the palette is a lot more aesthetically pleasing than just the basic tin or velvet.

Ounce X Chaser X Sauced X Low Blow
As far as the formula is concerned it is the classic Urban Decay formula. The mattes are very smooth, pigmented and easy to blend. I would wear the above combination of four shades for work, I think it will create a similar look to the one I was obsessed with from the Urban Decay Jean Michel Basquiat palette. This isn’t something that disappoints me, I feel that its great to have another option for a warm matte eye. I like warm eyeshadows do you get it yet?

Lumbre X He Devil X Dirty Talk X Scorched
A strange noise came out of me when I swatched these shimmers. They are absolutely beautiful and I honestly don’t own anything else that are these shades. They have been criticised for being too similar however that isn’t how I feel. I would create three very different looks with these shimmers. The lightest one I would wear as a one shadow look or maybe blend it out with a light brown. Dirty Talk is more of an orange shade which I would use oranges and very orange based browns in the crease. Whereas scorched I would be using more pink based browns and mauvy colours.

Cayenne X En Fuego X Ashes X Ember
My favourite shade in the palette may be Ember because I just don’t anything else like it. Its a beautiful deep bronze with some red reflects in it. It is absolutely stunning as an all over lid shade with a deep brown or deep purple in the crease. I can’t say enough positive things about this shade. However the same cannot be said for En Fuego and Ashes they have swatched pretty crappy so I paused the post to give them a go before I gave my view. They do blend out better on the eyes than they look on the swatch however they aren’t as blendable as the other shades from the palette I have used. En Fuego gathered slightly in the outer corner and wouldn’t blow out in the way I would’ve wanted. I imagine this could be rectified by blending for a little bit longer. Ashes is a bit of a nightmare, the colour has sort of stuck in patches and would really take some effort to sort it out.

Overall I am really happy with this palette and I imagine I will get a huge amount of use out of it. I would really recommend purchasing it if you love warm shades.

What palette would you like me to review next?
