I am a huge fan of Urban Decay eye shadow palettes and own all of the Naked Palettes. So,  I was really excited to hear about the launch of Naked Heat. It seems that I wasn’t the only one as it was all I’d heard about for months on social media. Everybody wanted to try it.

I wanted to see if the lived up to the hype first. I’m makeup mad but £39.50 is a lot of money. I wanted to be sure. I went to London in July and managed to spot it in Selfridges as a preview before it was released on 3rd August. Of course, I had to test it out. And then, I fell in love.

I think Urban Decay realised a long time ago, with the original Naked palette that the packaging needed to be improved. Thankfully the packaging for Naked Heat is similar to Naked Smoky – a hard plastic case. I like anything that keeps my makeup safe.

Like all Naked Palettes, Naked Heat comes with a double ended blending and crease brush. This isn’t the most amazing brush in the world, but neither is it the worst. To be honest, at £39.50 for the palette it’s a welcome treat and I’m pretty sure that I have all my Naked brushes lying about so they at least last well.

What are the shades like?

Like all Naked Palettes, Naked Heat contains 12 shades. This time the shades are all warm-toned orange and brown shades and nothing like any of the other Naked Palettes.

Out of the 12 shades, 8 are matte with the remaining 4 (Lumbre, Dirty Talk, Scorched and Ember) being gorgeous shimmers.

As to be expected, the pigmentation of this palette is amazing – particularly of the shimmery shades which glide on beautifully and easily. Obviously the matte shades are slightly more powdery but they also blend very well too.


I love doing swatches but had to rush these as my toddler was approaching and she loves anything shimmery! So they’re messy but the colours can be seen. These swatches were taken in natural daylight and haven’t been edited.

Well, obviously I love it!! I think the Naked palettes are amazing quality and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s versatile and I’ve been mostly using it to create day-to-day looks – I’m a single mum, when do I need to do dramatic nighttime looks? But,  Naked Heat has huge potential for gorgeous smoky eye looks too.  I just need to get someone to take me out… not that I’m hinting!

Have you tried Naked Heat? What were your thoughts?

  1. I have always heard a lot about Urban Decay palettes. I love finding and playing with new makeup, even though I rarely wear it. (Except for lipstick… I’m always wearing lipstick!) I love how those colors pop off of your skin. I will have to try one of their palettes. You have a beautiful site.

  2. This palette is absolutely beautiful, and I just watched Zoella talking about it in her August favourites video! The shades are so pretty and perfect coming into fall! I need to purchase this for myself!

  3. I have always heard good things about Naked palettes. The packaging is pretty neat and these seem like shades I’d love to try. Maybe I’ll actually buy it this time instead of borrowing my friend’s Naked palette 🙂

  4. What an awesome color palette. I never realized how important high quality eye shadow is, but it makes a huge difference. Hopefully I can get a sample of this to check out.

  5. The Urban Decay Naket eye shadow palette is so gorgeous! I love all the amazing colors and the shimmers. I bet it looks super pretty on the eyelids. Can you do a tutorial using these colors?

  6. Nice review, I have never owned an Urban Decay palette but have heard some great reviews and love the shades here. Would have loved to seen a day-to-day look as I usually opt for the dramatic night time looks most of the time lol
