Urban Decay’s Naked Heat features 12 all-new, amber-hued neutrals—including warm browns, burnt oranges, and rich siennas. The most shade-driven Naked palette Urban Decay has ever created, this palette takes Naked the next level. From a super-smooth red-brown matte and a glimmering copper to a deep, shifty bronze, this palette has everything you need to create sultry daytime looks, intensely smoky nighttime looks, and everything in between.
These shades flatter all skintones, and feature hues like En Fuego: a matte red that looks stands out in the crease or on the lid. Ember is a color that's ideal for the perfect warm smoky eye, and you’ll be able to go ultra-bold with Scorched, a metallic deep red with gold micro-shimmer, and Dirty Talk, a metallic burnt red.
Each shade in Naked Heat features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, ultimate staying power, and blendability. With shades like these, you’ll want to blend the perfect sunset eye, and this formula makes it so easy to transition shades like a makeup pro.
Whether you’re creating looks for the office, out on the town, or in-flight, Naked Heat has everything you need, including a full-size mirror and a double-ended brush. The blending brush end is perfect for seamless blending, while the detailed crease brush side helps you to get a precise application in the crease.
WHY WE'RE FEELIN' IT
I am sucker for a good warm toned palette so I was super excited to try this out but it took me a few tries before I got the hang of it. Maybe it is just me but I noticed that the matte colors that are placed next to each other blended out too similarly when I tried using them together on my complexion. (i.e Sauced + Lowblow or En Fuego + Ashes.) If you are a beginner to eye shadow, I would recommend starting off by pairing the matte shadows from different color families and adding a shimmer on top(if that makes any sense.) It's also important to note that $54 is a little on the pricey end, but the packaging is to die for and you get a mirror and a dual ended brush. I also wish this palette included a matte brown!
