Summer Heat, Naked Heat. One in the same in my opinion as both are as hot, as you know what, and a favorite among many. Is the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette worth the hype? It may be, but there’s a lot of thought that goes into this decision. This palette is super hyped up. I find sometimes when this happens the product tends to fall flat. Is this the best Naked Palette? Well I think this comes down to preference. Let’s breakdown each of the 12 shades in the Naked Heat palette and see if they hold up to the hype.
Ounce is a light golden beige with warm undertones and has a very soft pearly shimmer. This shade is super light in color and really blended into my skin. I do find that this shade doesn’t last on me as long as the others. However, it’s a really pretty highlight shade.
Chaser is a very light warm brown that has a matte finish. This shade is really pretty and lasted a long time on my eyes. I found I didn’t loose the pigmentation when blending.
Sauced is a medium, warm brown with orange undertones and a matte finish. This matte is one of my favorites in the palette due to the opacity and texture. This shade applies beautifully to the skin.
Low Blow is a medium orange toned warm matte brown. Yes, warm again but this is a palette full of warm shades. This shade is also very nice. It lasts a long time and applies evenly and pigmented. This shade is super pretty!
Lumbre is a medium warm coral-red with a pearly sheen. This shade is a bit drier than others. However, once applied to the skin it was nice. It’s just not as easy to work with as other shades. It’s a unique shade though and worth the extra work to make it perfect.
He Devil is a super reddish-brown with warm toned matte. This shade is warmer than others and blends out super easy. This is one of my favorite shades in the palette. It’s super easy to work with and is a beautiful shade.
Dirty Talk is a medium-dark copper brown with warm orange undertones. This shade is a frost finish. The kickback when you dip your brush into this one is excessive, so make sure you are aware it is powdery and you tap your brush off. However, once it’s applied it’s a beautiful shade.
Scorched is a muted dark brown with warm reddish undertones. It’s also has a sparkling, metallic sheen. This shade has serious fallout due to it being a bit more on the dry side. Make sure you use with a dampened brush or your finger to get the best application.
Cayenne is a muted, dark brown with warm undertones and has a matte finish. This shade is not as full on pigmented as other shades, but can be built up to the intensity you want. It blends out super easy and lasts a long time on my lids. Cayenne does look like the spice so there you go!
En Fuego is a muted medium toned dark reddish matte plum shade. This shade is build-able, but I really wish it was a bit more soft in texture and pigmented. It doesn’t blend as well as the other shades. The color is beautiful it just takes more effort to build up pigmentation and blend.
Ashes is a muted warm toned purple-plum shade with a matte finish. This shade is dry and harder to blend out. The color of this shade is beautiful, but the pigmentation, texture and application are very disappointing. This is the shade I was most disappointed in within the palette. As you can see from the swatch it was super patchy.
Ember is a deep plum brown with a olive undertone. This is a truly unqiue shade and is one of my favorites. It’s super pigmented and easy to blend. You only need a small amount of this product to create the most gorgeous look. By far this is the best shade in the palette.
I would rate the palette overall a B+. The packaging is wonderful as per usual. I love the hard plastic design. The pigmentation, texture, application and longevity are about average. Basically I think Urban Decay left some on the table with this one. However, this scoring doesn’t denounce that it’s a nice palette that warm shadow lover will adore. It’s more affordable than other warm tone palettes people are going crazy about. However, I don’t find this palette to be super unique so if you already have a bunch of warm shades then unless you are a collector you may want to skip this one. Otherwise it’s a nice palette. Have you tried this palette? How do you like it? Which Naked palette is your favorite?
