Review: Urban Decay Naked Heat | BEAUTY | FREYA WILCOX

I still remember the day I bought my first Urban Decay palette. Surprisingly, it wasn’t the original naked palette although I purchased this a few weeks later. I bought the Mariposa palette in 2011 (isn’t available anymore) but I was really impressed with the colours, pigmentation and durability and an obsession began.  I’ve now started to build a collection of products. My all-time favourite palette HAS to be the original Naked palette– I love the golden tones and find all of the shades super wearable.

I was really excited when Urban Decay announced the addition of the Naked Heat to the collection of Naked palettes and was super lucky that I managed to get my hands on it in a flash sale. It’s going to be available at the end of July so not long to wait if you didn’t manage to get one!

The Naked Heat palette is absolutely gorgeous with lovely red, sunset tones which I think is perfect for summer and the transition into Autumn and Winter. It’s got twelve shades in total- five shimmers and seven matte shades. In terms of wearability, I’m not sure if I will use all of the shades- Ashes looks a little dark for me. I think a gold shade would be a good addition to the palette- I just can’t get enough of half baked but I’d settle for limelight (one of my Mariposa faves).

Naked Heat- the shades:

Ounce- every great palette needs a good highlighter shade and Naked Heat is no exception. Ounce is a pearly champagne with a satin finish. This will be great for your inner eye corners and brow bone and would also work well as a base.

Chaser- this is matte in a pale bone shade.

Sauced- this is matte in a warm taupe shade and is a good transitional crease colour to blend out.

Low Blow- this is a pale brown matte shade, slightly darker than sauced and will be another good transitional crease colour to blend out or to add a bit more depth.

Lumbre- I’m calling it, I think this is my favourite shade in the entire palette. Lumber is a beautiful shimmer in a rose gold shade.

He Devil- this is a reddish brown matte shade and has got probably the best pigmentation in the whole palette. Seriously- a little goes a long way.

Dirty Talk – this is the closest to a gold in the whole palette but I’d describe it as a coppery red shimmer shade.

Scorched- a beautiful pinky shimmer shade (the most shimmery in the whole palette). This seems to work slightly better with a wet eyeshadow brush to really pack on the colour.

Cayenne- this shade is quite similar to He Devil but with less pigmentation. A matte burnt orange shade.

En Fuego – a lovely dark red/plum matte shade.

Ashes- this is my least favourite shade because I don’t think I will wear it much. A plummy/dark brown matte shade with medium pigmentation. The shade on its own probably wouldn’t work very well and would be better to add depth to another shade.

Ember- this shade didn’t look anything special in the pan but after swatching, it came alive! A beautiful brown base shade with copper/red shimmer in the light.

My favourite shades that I think I’ll wear regularly are Ounce, Sauced, Lumber and He Devil.

How to wear Naked Heat:

Start by sweeping Chaser across the lid as a base shade. Then, push Sauced into the crease and add Low Blow over the top to build the crease up.

Next, apply Dirty Talk over the your lids and add Lumber into the very middle of the lid. To finish, add Ounce to the inner corner of your eye and to the top of the brow bone.


As with all of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I think it’s really good value for money for 12 high quality shades. It even comes with a double ended brush for perfect application!

The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette costs £39.50 and will launch online  on 27 July and will be available in store from 3 August.
