Urban Decay’s family of Naked eyeshadow palettes are bestsellers. Their newest release, Naked Heat, is a gorgeous selection of on-trend, sunset shades.
As someone with cool, fair skin, I haven’t been totally into the crazy amounts of warm shadows around. But Urban Decay put this palette together quite well.
Shades + Swatches
Like your typical Naked palette, Naked Heat has 12 x 0.05 oz eyeshadows for $54.
Ounce – ivory shimmer
Chaser – light nude matte
Sauced – soft terra-cotta matte
Low Blow – brown matte
Lumbre – copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift
He Devil – burnt red matte
Dirty Talk – metallic burnt red
Scorched – metallic deep red w/gold micro-shimmer
Cayenne – deep terra-cotta matte
En Fuego – burgundy matte
Ashes – deep reddish-brown matte
Ember – deep metallic copper-burgundy
I have to admit I’m not typically the biggest fan of Urban Decay shadows. I like them, but there are better shadows out there. I think they dry out quickly, many are hard to blend, and they don’t last very long on me. This palette is a pretty big exception.
All of the shades in Naked Heat are super creamy and pigmented. They show up quite true to their swatches on my lids. I wish the darker shades blended a little bit better, but they’re not too hard to work with.
The shade range isn’t quite diverse enough in my opinion though; sometimes the shades can muddy up together because the undertones are too similar. This diminishes the number of shadow combos in this palette, because it’s like having 9 or 10 shades instead of 12. Still, there are still plenty of beautiful looks that can be done.
My go-to look with this palette uses Chaser as my transition color, with Low Blow blended in the crease. Scorched is a beautiful lid color that really makes the green in my hazel eyes pop. Then I use Ashes in the outer corner/lower lashline and Ounce as my inner-corner highlight.
The new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette is beautiful, but skippable if you’ve already indulged in the warm shadow trend. However, I do think the shadow quality is Urban Decay’s best to date.
