Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is all about achieving fiery, hot and smokin’ eyes! It’s a bestselling eyeshadow palette and it’s easy to see why!

It has a range of warm-toned, earthy colors ranging from burnt oranges and siennas to deep reds and browns. With different finishes, the number of stunning eyeshadow looks you can create is endless. Let’s get into the deets!

Naked Heat Palette

The NEW Naked Heat

The palette joins the family of the Naked range, which Urban Decay is famous for.

Called Heat due to its 12 beautiful, hot, smokey’ colours that are totally gorgeous. The colours were made to suit all skin tones, although, generally warm-toned shades are more suitable for warm-toned skin.

I’ll start with the packaging. You don’t need to read the words on the packaging to get a feel for the palette, it’s really self-explanatory. It oozes ‘heat’ from every fibre of the design.

I love how the swatches of the colours are on the cover, it fits in perfectly with the whole theme. Inside the palette, there is a mirror and a double-ended brush that comes with it. One end is for blending and the other is a detailed crease brush.

These are both lovely features and always make the product more attractive and useful. Although let’s be honest, how many of us really use the brushes that come with eyeshadow palettes? They’re a nice feature but the shades are the deal here!

On to the exciting part- the colours. They really speak for themselves, each one is more beautiful than the next. It has 12 shadows that range from a pink-toned nude to coppery brown, with shades of brick and plenty of shimmers in between.

Eyeshadow shades

From left to right the colours are- Ounce, Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow, Lumbre, He Devil, Dirty Talk, Scorched, Cayenne, En Fuego, Ashes and Ember.

There are 7 matte colours, 2 shimmer colours and 3 metallic colours.

Each colour can be worn alone and it will still look breathtaking. If you want a smokey eye look, this palette is an all-in-one ideal palette for that.

All the shades are buildable, easy to blend and stay really well without smudging.

Like everything in life, this palette too has some negative(ish) factors. The shadows are a bit drier than the other Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes. The other palettes have a creamier consistency to them, which makes them slightly easier to apply.

As a side point, I always recommend using a primer before applying eyeshadow, but with this palette, I would say it’s a must in order to get the best results.

Another thing that a lot of people mentioned is that they found the palette doesn’t have enough variety. The colours all blend into each other, but the general wow factor is missing.

Personally, I love the colours they may not be loud but they’re dazzling enough for me! If you want a dramatic, bright, shocking look, this is not the palette for you. This palette is deep, steamy, smokey and sizzling.

The colours are perfect for hot summer nights and they match the changing leaves of autumn. It’s true, the colours are all similar in the big picture, but it’s a neutral palette so it’s to be expected.

Urban Decay founder Wende Zomnir told Allure, “I’ve never been able to say this about a Naked palette, but this is the first Naked palette that satisfies both my need for neutrals and my craving for rich, sexy color”. I think that sums up the palette pretty well!

My Thoughts

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette does not disappoint! The colours are truly beautiful with a stunning range to them.

Highly pigmented, the shades are easy to blend, super soft and there’s little fallout.

The number of looks you can create is endless. The determining factor on whether this is a palette for you is if you love the colors and shades because the quality is there!

    I really enjoied reading you article. I just can’t believe how important make up is for you ladies. What really does my head in is that sometimes my wife will ask me opinions on certain brands of makeup and such! (I’m clueless on the subject) I will usually try to make her decision for her based on brand recognition! Now that I found your page I will make sure to have her read it or I will use it for future reference when she ask’s me for help!
    Thank You

    1. Many men find makeup important too. Not only that it’s a lot of fun and creative. To me makeup up is a creative outlet and its like painting a blank canvas! The choices are endless and the results are stunning. 

      Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Holly,

    Thank you for your review on the Naked Pallette. I am a big fan of these, however, they are a little pricey. Are there any cheaper alternatives that you would recommend? Also, any tips for making sure your eye shadow lasts all day? Mine has all but disappeared by lunchtime, particularly on a hot day!

    Thank you

    1. Hi Kirsty,

      I agree-they are pricey. The closest alternative I can think of is the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. Its slightly cheaper, retailing at £39. 

      I used to have the same problem as you, my eyeshadow never lasted and always creased. It really bothered me and I tried out an insane amount of primers. None of them worked until I discovered the Urban decay eye primer. Its literally magic. My eyeshadow doesn’t budge. You can read my review here
