Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review and Swatches

ud1

Purchased by me

The fifth installment of the Urban Decay Naked series has arrived, and I purchased it as soon as it launched on UD’s website. I knew right away that this palette would be a winner for me when I saw previews of it on social media, and upon receiving it, I was correct!

Like the other Naked palettes, there are 12 shades and the palette comes with a brush. I think this brush has been my favorite so far, because I love the tapered crease side. The case is similar to the Naked Smoky palette as compared to the metal palettes of Naked 2 and 3, and the cardboard of Naked 1.

This is a warm-toned palette with shimmer, matte, and metallic shades. My favorite shade is Ember, which is on the far right.

I find every color in here to be pigmented and they wear well on the eyes with a primer; I do not experience fading or creasing during wear. I have worn every shade in the palette so far and although it may appear that the palette won’t have much variety, it is surprisingly versatile. Compared to Naked 3 which is another palette that has similar tones, Naked Heat can create more looks (IMO).

There is surprisingly little fallout with this palette, and the formula seems stiffer than earlier Naked palettes–not in a bad way, as they are just as pigmented. The shadows actually remind me of the NARS eyeshadow formula; a little stiff with little fallout, but high pigment.

This palette retails for $54, and I am very pleased with it! I can’t say that it’s my favorite Naked palette of all time just yet, but I truly love it and think it is worth considering if you are into these shadow colors. 🙂
