Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Heat

If you`re familiar with my blog, then you know I`m a drugstore type of gal. I truly believe there`s a cheaper alternative for every beauty product out there. That`s one of the reasons why I never owned a Naked palette before. There were so many dupes from MUA of Makeup Revolution out there, one was bound to be a winner. And there were. But when my Instagram was invaded by gorgeous pics of the Naked Heat palette, I decided to take the splurge. Those shades instantly stole my heart and for me, this is the quintessential Fall eyeshadow palette. For the first time ever I wasn`t interested in finding a drugstore alternative.

At 39.50£ this is the most expensive makeup item I own. However, I plan on using it all Autumn and Winter, so I think it`s worth the money. Inside you`ll find a mix of 12 matte and shimmery eyeshadows, most of them warm-toned. The palette also comes with a good dual-ended brush, perfect for applying and blending the colours. 

I`ve been using this palette for almost a month now and I can see why people are going crazy over the formula. These eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented, buttery and easy to blend. I also did not notice any fall-out, which is always a plus. A part of me will always be faithful to drugstore products, so I have to mention that I have 4£ eyeshadow palettes which are pigmented and creamy as well. But they don`t come close to this. It took me a while, but now I get the hype. 

I am not the best at describing shades, so bear with me. This will probably be the most entertaining part of your day, as I have no clue of colours or textures. Seriously, I can break down a novel and write the perfect review. Yet I still refer to wine colour as dark red.

Ounce – pearly cream shade, perfect for highlighting your brow bone. Mildly/very pigmented.

Chaser – light beige cream. Not that pigmented.

Sauced – matte tan, pigmented and easy to blend/even application.

Low Blow – matte brown, soft and pigmented.

Lumbre – goldy, burnt peach. Very pigmented and buttery.

He Devil – matte brick red, pigmented and very blendable.

Dirty Talk – smooth copper metallic.

Scorched – metallic red with a bit of bronze?

Cayenne – a rich, brown matte, fairly pigmented.

En Fuego – matte dark brick brown.

Ashes – matte, dark chocolate deep brown.

Ember – metallic brown/bronze.

As I said, I am terrible at describing colours, but I hope that the swatches made them justice. At the moment I don`t reach for the first 3 shades, but the others are a dream. I can`t choose between “Lumbre”, “He Devil”, “Dirty Talk”, “Scorched” and “Ember”, as I think they`re all amazing and unique colours. I also think they`re the most pigmented and easy to work with out of the bunch. On the other side, I did find “Ashes” and “En Fuego” a bit harder to work with. Not much, but I had to blend more carefully than with the others.

I have to admit that these were the best 40£ I ever spent. I`m so happy with this palette and it`s an investment I won`t regret. Not only is the formula amazing, but the shades are so different and you can create so many amazing looks with it. And you know me, I`m all about that Fall makeup. Actually, I`m about Autumn everything, but details.

    I'm all for drugstore products too but if it's something that you will get a lot of use from, then I don't see why not?! You already seem to have got your money's worth from this haha, and the shades do look lovely x Velvet Blush

    This is exactly how I felt when I bought my first Naked palette, the quality of their eyeshadows are amazing! Of all the Naked palettes released, I definitely like the colors of Heat the most, and would totally get it if I didn't already have similar shades in my collection!Jenny | Geeky Posh
