Oh Urban Decay… This brand reminds me when I started to be into make-up. At the time, all the beauty youtubers and bloggers were talking about one palette: the Naked 2 from Urban Decay. I have to admit that – despite the years – I am unable to get tide of mine.
Over the years I forgot a little bit the brand. Their products were not original anymore and the brand was unable to renew itself. Over the last 10 years, hundreds of make-up brands appeared and they were so many things to try for a fraction of the price: at the time, the Urban Decay palettes (Naked 1, 2, and 3) were quite expensive and you could find similar shades for a lot cheaper.
This palette was released years ago but I purchased it only recently: I was buying the Naked Ultra-Violet Palette for a friend when I saw the Naked Heat Palette and my heart sank: this palette had to come back home with me.
The Naked Heat has the same efficient presentation than her big sisters: 12 shadows in a elegant case containing a big mirror, coming with a double-ended brush.
The Naked Heat Palette contains twelve powder eyeshadows:
- Ounce – a shimmery ivory
- Chaser – a light matte beige
- Sauced – a very soft matte brown/orange
- Low Blow – a medium matte beige
- Lumbre – a medium, delicate pearly coral
- He Devil – – a matte redish medium brown
- Dirty Talk – a frosted medium brown with orange undertone
- Scorched – a mettalic dark brown with red undertone
- Cayenne – a matte terracotta
- En Fuego – a matte burgundy
- Ashes – a matte purpled plum
- Ember – a frosted burgundy with a slight dark green undertone
The pigmentation is good but requires a good primer. Unfortunely, the mattes are not as creamy as they used to be and the shimmery ones are not as opaque as expected.
It is overall a good palette but a little bit disapointing for the price I paid for. I will restart to use it from September, as the color theme suits perfectly my autumn wardrobe.
