Urban Decay NAKED HEAT Palette Review

Urban Decay NAKED HEAT Palette (here & here)

I finally got my hot little hands on the newest NAKED eye shadow palette from Urban Decay.  NAKED HEAT is the latest in the NAKED palette line-up and it’s hot!  I still remember receiving my first NAKED palette (NAKED 1) for my birthday many moons ago.  As much as I was a fan of the NAKED 1 palette, the shadows were a very frosty cool mix of shimmers and metallics.  And, in my opinion, the matte shades had a tendency to look weird or ashy on brown skin tones.

Enter the new NAKED HEAT palette.  A warm mixture of 12 colors consisting of rich coppers and bronzes.  Unlike some of its predecessors, NAKED HEAT is heavy on rich mattes, 7 to be exact.  Let’s All Rejoice!  (2) shimmers and (3) metallics round out the dozen with fun hot names like “Ashes”, “Ember” and “Cayenne”.

Here’s what I LOVED:  

The packaging is so sexy, the picture doesn’t give it justice.  You’ll have to see it in person to fully understand what I mean.  Inside, the warm colors are so rich and beautiful.  Annnnnnnd, they are flattering to all skin tones.  Woohoo!  See the color swatches on my skin tone below.  Isn’t the color pay-off gorgeous?

Here’s what I wasn’t a fan of:

A few of the neutral matte shades, particularly “Sauced” (which I LOVE) crumbles easily in the tray when loading color onto my brush.  Thinking it was just user error (me), I set out to Google other reviews and found similar experiences with the neutral mattes.

Overall thoughts . . .

I’m definitely a fan of the Urban Decay NAKED HEAT palette.  I’ve played around with a few copper/reddish looks and and received some thumbs up.  Overall, I’m a fan of this palette.  Definitely can’t to try more looks with the NAKED HEAT palette.
