Happy Friday Guys! We have a smoldering review today that’s gonna get your temperatures rising. Everyone’s talking about this and it seems like it doesn’t disappoint. If you’re a fan of eyeshadows, be it in neutrals, earthy, or shimmers, and if you love Urban decay, oh well, I know you’re gonna love this newly-released Naked Heat Palette ($54). It’s the fifth installment to the ever popular “Naked” line of eyeshadows by Urban Decay.
It all started with the first Naked eyeshadow that got us all head over heels in love (reviewed HERE). It was then followed by the insanely famous Naked 2, then the rosé all day Naked 3, and for the smoky-eye fanatics, a Naked Smoky was released. I love them all and I try not to use up all of them because they all look so pretty and practical to have, specially during special occasions or when you’re traveling. It’s like you’ve got all the shades you’ll ever need in one palette with a free dual-ended multipurpose brush and a wide-angle mirror. I also love that each Naked palette comes in different packaging styles.
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette follows the impressive formulation and saturated pigment of its predecessors. Such bold colors in one beautiful palette. It has 12 shades which consist of browns, ambers, terra -cottas, brown reds, coppers, and burgundies. Texture-wise, there are shimmery ones and matte ones. Also, there are a few light to neutral shades as well. I like all the matte colors like; Low Blow, Cayenne, He Devil & En Fuego. The shimmery shades are beautiful too, like the Lumbre, Dirty Talk & Scorched. As a matter of fact, all the shades in this palette are really hot and sultry.
Another thing I wanna point out is that the colors don’t have a lot of fallouts and they’re pretty much well-curated. The colors are unique, wearable and easy to blend. Each shade complements each other and is very versatile. You can either do a natural daytime look or go smoky, whichever you want. In addition to that, the palette looks really good on any skin tone as it adds warmth to a light complexion, or it complements anyone who’s skin tone is medium to dark.
Overall, I think the Naked Heat Palette by UD is well-made and well-thought-out. There’s nothing quite like it. The packaging is sturdy, the brush is soft and practical to have, the wide mirror is just perfect, and the shades are gorgeous and timely for this season. The application is smooth and buttery and each shade blends like a charm. I think Urban Decay did it again with this good value palette.
With all the Naked Palettes out there, the million dollar question now is, which Naked are you?
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is available at Nordstrom, Macys & Sephora
