I managed to get my hands on this palette by chance on pre-release and what a beauty it is! Following on from the success of its predecessor, Naked Heat has been introduced to the family to add that spice to your cut crease and give create ever lasting drama into your Red/Orange smokes. If you’re a fan of intense smoke outs, then this one is for you. I was very excited by the colours and the intensity just got me like (insert heart eye emoji)
There are 12 scorching shades, which include a mixture of four shimmers and eight mattes. The pay off got me SHOOK*
*To be speechless, flabbergasted
I could already tell just by looking at this for the first time, you can create hundreds of 3D looks! The amount of depth and definition these shades will give you are mind blowing!
The palette is encased in paper packaging, but I love how it slides out to reveal the palette – an update on the classic packaging. Metallic effects at the front of the packaging are quite eye catching and if you look on the inside of the sleeve, there is burnt out matches to reflect the name of the palette. The reverse of the sleeve has what looks like burning roses. I love the attention to detail! Urban Decay always kill it with the packaging, and this one has been well thought out.
It feels very luxe, very high end when it’s in your hand, and I musy say it’s quite heavy too! Makeup junkies all over were impatiently anticipating it’s release since images of it leaked on social media. It does not disappoint.
The actual palette is encased in plastic packaging and the front logo has a mirrored detail effect with ombre hues of red, brown, copper and gold. It’s quite something to look at!
The palette is bursting with Red, Brick, Copper, Burnt Orange and Rich Plum shades which totally dominate and you can just tell from the colours in the pan, it’s going to be a major hit. These are all brand new, never before seen shades.
Can we just talk about this for a second? How gorgeous!!

I am dying over this colour combination so much! It’s literally my favourite selection of shades to wear and the Orange shades are already firm favourites! How hot will these look with a nude lip!
The formula has been updated, because compared to the last 3 Naked palettes, the eyeshadows are just like butter and blend so effortlessly. The colours feel very smooth on and when I swatched those shimmers, BHAM! It was like a sparkling explosion! When I was swatching this, I hardly had to put much effort in. I am super impressed!
Here’s a look I created using the palette and I tried to use as much of the palette as I could smoking out the lids and under eye. I am totally obsessed guys! This palette is my dream come true!
Like many of the Naked palettes, this one will become a cult in it’s own right and a new release by Urban Decay is always exciting, but when it’s a palette, it’s even better!
Our Summer may not always be scorching, but this palette certainly is. It really is a sunset in a palette!
Chelsea has done some lovely swatches over on her blog, she has a paler skin colour to me, have a look for comparison.
Naked Heat will be available nationwide from 30th June, and I definitely suggest setting an alarm, because I can see this will be a sell out!
