Today I’m going to review the Urban Decay Naked Heat! Hurry up to grab it and see! ヅ
If eyeshadows means something to you, welcome to my review! Oops… And what about the rest of you? Welcome everybody! ヅI won’t say that the review is going to be very HOT to avoid the disappointment for some of you. Moreover, I realize that I’m not such a cool beauty blogger. However, I’ll be happy to share some useful information and photos for those who doubt, whether they should buy the Naked Heat or not.
☀☀☀ NAME: Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette
Weight: 15.6 g. Consequently, each shade weighs around 1.3 g.
Expiry date: 2 years.
By the way, I've had the UD Naked Smoky for 2 years now and the palette is still perfect, except for the shade Thirteen which is almost used up and I can’t find a decent dupe for it.
The eyeshadow is made in the USA and the brush in China.
Price: 47.40 Euro on feelunique.com. The price is hot as well as the palette itself!

If you thought our Naked palettes were hot before, brace yourself—because our newest iteration is next level. This is Naked Heat, our most sweltering Naked palette yet.
Give in to the heat of the moment with 12 ALL-NEW, can’t-live-without, amber-hued neutrals—including warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas. The most shade-driven Naked palette we’ve ever done, this palette takes Naked in a whole new direction. 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 look insanely flattering on any skin tone, and talk about HOT. We’re currently obsessed with En Fuego, a matte red, which looks amazing in the crease or on the lid. Ember is our go-to shade for the perfect warm smoky eye. We also can’t get enough of Scorched, a metallic deep red with gold micro-shimmer, and Dirty Talk, a really beautiful metallic burnt red.
Every shade in Naked Heat features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability. Because with shades like these, you’ll want to blend the perfect sunset eye, and our formula makes it so easy to transition shades like a pro.
Whether you’re getting Naked in the office, at your significant other’s place or at 40,000 feet, Naked Heat has everything you need, including a full-size mirror and a double-ended brush. We craft our palette brushes with the same care as our UD Pro Brushes. The performance is insane, and they’re some of our favorite tools. The Blending Brush is perfect for foolproof, seamless blending. Use the Detailed Crease Brush to get a precise application in the crease.
The product comes in a cardboard package, which is a disappointment.
The outer packaging is made in the form of a matchbox. Well, I know, the manufacturer wanted to do his best and created the palette reminding of heat, fire, etc. But the palette is so uncomfortable to use. I’m just curious, has any beauty blogger talked about this?
When I hold the palette in my hands, I have to be extremely careful and hold both sides of the packaging. Otherwise the inner part of the palette can slip and fall down.
I like the traditional packaging more, as I can stick it up on one side and know which side to hold carefully and where to open it. OK, I’ll figure out something…
The eyeshadow case is very good quality and nice to hold in my hands. The size of this palette is almost the same as that of the Naked Smoky: 2,0*6,5*20 cm.
The palette is made of smooth plastic. The back accumulates fingerprints, which are not very noticeable however, as it’s brick-red. The box closes with a magnetic closure and doesn’t creak or anything. Well done! I always pay attention to such details, as I love quality packaging with cosmetics. The thing is that makeup products (especially eyeshadows) last longer than skin care products in my case, so I want it to be in a perfect condition all the time I use it. It happens with high-ends only, unfortunately…
The case opens up a tad more than 180 degrees. Under the top you can see a big quality mirror with a protective film, which I’ve thrown away. I don’t know why I did it, as I’ve never used this mirror.
Brush. The palette comes with a 15.5 cm brush that has synthetic bristles. It’s quite workable and nice to use. I’ve been using it to create swatches and makeup looks as well as the other brushes I have. However, it’s two-sided, so I doubt that I’ll be using it further on. The reason is that I don’t know how to wash and keep it properly.
By the way, it’s different from the brush included in the Naked Smoky.
Let’s take a look at the palette and its shades. I know this is more interesting for most of you.
The product consists of 12 shades, 7 of them are matte and 5 contain shimmer.
These are the swatches for those, who don’t use an eyeshadow base. Here, I’ve applied the hues to my bare skin with a BRUSH.
THE SHADES from left to right ☀☀☀
The shade is light beige and almost white and has a small shimmer to it. It’s highly pigmented and the payoff is medium. The color is easy to blend out. The finish reminds me of a highlighter.
❤ It’s a light beige shade, which I use most of the time. I thought that the color would be darker before buying, but I was wrong. It blends into my skin tone perfectly and can be used alone or for blending the lines of the brighter shades. It’s highly pigmented and the payoff is great.
The texture is so soft and creamy, that when I touch it, it feels like a powder chocolate. The shade is a little bit dusty while picking up and easy to blend out. The finish is matte.
It’s a highly-pigmented light terra-cotta color with a great payoff. The texture is also powder-like, soft and creamy. The color is dusty and cause no problems while blending out. The finish is matte.
❤ It’s a light brown hue that reminds me of milk chocolate or coffee with milk. The shade is highly pigmented as well and the payoff is awesome. The texture is powder-like, soft and creamy. It’s a little dusty and the finish is matte.
It’s a dark rose gold or a so-called duochrome hue. The texture reminds me of a pressed pigment that opens up fully when applied damp. It’s highly pigmented. The payoff is medium applied dry and high applied damp. It’s hardly dusty and the finish is shimmery.
Now a comparison for you…
❤ The color is the highlight of this palette. It’s a complicated brick-red color. When I take a closer look, I clearly see a hint of green or blue, which is typical for a duochrome…
It’s highly pigmented and the payoff is super. The texture is drier than Chase, Sauced and Low Blow. The shade is hardly dusty when picking up with a brush. It blends out with ease and has a matte finish.
It’s a red tone with a hint of orange. I can also see a pink undertone taking a closer look. The shade is highly pigmented. The payoff is awesome. The texture is soft, creamy and somewhat loose. It’s hardly dusty. Plus, it’s easy to blend out. The finish has shimmer to it.
It’s hard to describe this shade, as I see 4 hues in it: red, pink, brown and gold. The pigmentation and payoff are great. The texture reminds me of the Dirty Talk shade. The only difference is that it crumbles when applied with a brush. The blending process is a little bit hard. The payoff is better applied damp. It has a shimmer finish.
❤ It’s a deep terra-cotta color, the same as the palette itself. It’s highly pigmented and the payoff is very good. The texture is something between the He Devil and the first matte shades (Chaser, Sauced and Low Blow). In other words, it’s not so soft yet not dry. The shade is hardly dusty. It’s very easy to blend out and the finish is matte.
It’s a dark red color with a brown undertone. It’s highly pigmented, but the payoff is medium. The texture reminds me of the Cayenne color. It’s not dusty and blends out very quickly. The finish is matte.
This is the pass of the palette and the only tone I couldn’t handle. I’ve tried it once, but had to remove it right away. It’s a dark brown shade with a hint of lilac. It’s highly pigmented and the payoff is very low, so it has to be layered. It’s just a little bit dusty. Moreover, it’s a mess when blending out. The finish is matte.
A comparison for you again…
It’s a highly pigmented kind of a duochrome shade. The pigmentation and the payoff are great.
The texture is soft, creamy and loose. The shade is dusty and clumpy. The brush picks up too much of the product at a time and the shade can fall out under your eyes. It looks best when applied with a damp brush. The metallic thing disappears if blended out.The finish depends on the application. If the shade is applied dry, than it has a shimmer finish and applied damp a metallic finish.
PECULIARITIES of the eyeshadow ☀☀☀
Smell. When I smell it closely, I can feel a nice cosmetic fragrance. The eyeshadow lasts a day with a base. I have oily eyelids, so I always prefer applying the base.
I remove the makeup with a regular cleansing oil, which I’m eager to review next. More than that, I’d like to say that the shades do not color the brushes. My point is that the brushes are easy to wash with water and any soap.
THE SHADES IN MAKEUP ☀☀☀
I’m no makeup artist, I don’t know how to photoshop my pictures, don’t wear extensions and don’t draw lines usually, because I’m too lazy. Besides, my camera is running its course, but I’m not ready to spend big bucks on a professional photographer, so don’t judge me strictly. I see that there are so many screw-ups, but I’m a quick learner ヅ

The last option:
There is way more than just these makeup looks you can create with this palette. Get creative!
I give it 4 stars. In my humble opinion, the eyeshadow doesn’t deserve 5 stars, as you have to get the hang of some shades there. In addition, the Ashes is a total flop, which I’m not going to use anymore.
The shades are so fascinating and new for me. However, I’d still love to try Chanel Les 4 Ombres #268 Candeur Et Experience.
Anyway, the UD Naked Heat palette is worth every penny! Now I have a “Song of Ice and Fire” (Naked Heat vs Naked Smoky). Now I wonder, what the next Naked palette would be like!
So, I recommend this product to all those who ❤ Urban Decay like I do and would like to try red and brown shades. Feel free to ask me any questions you have. I’ll be happy to answer them.
Thank you guys for reading!
