This review is long overdue, but the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette has to be one of my favourites in the range. I received the Urban Decay Naked Heat as a birthday gift in February.
So with the breaking news this week that Urban Decay will be discontinuing their cult favourite the Original Naked palette I thought I need to get this review up. It is sad that they discontinuing the Original Naked palette that started the amazing range but I have to admit that Heat and Naked 3 is definitely on top of my favourite list.
I love the Urban Decay Naked Heat warmer shades colour selection which was perfect for the winter. In South Africa we are at the end of our winter but I have to admit that I will probably continue to wear it during the spring and summer. The shades are intensely pigmented and rich.
I love the sleek packaging of the Naked Heat. It is housed in a sturdy plastic compact with a generously sized mirror tucked inside and a double-ended brush with a precise tip on the one side and a fluffier on the other. The word Urban Decay Naked Heat is embossed in 3D embossed in rose gold on the packaging.
The shades are pretty amazing. There are 7 mattes and 5 shimmers in the palette that are 1.3g each. I think it is a good balance however shimmers is my favourite and I would not have minded 5 mattes and 7 shimmers. I just find shimmers creates that pop on the lid that opens my eyes. There is one duo-chrome share “Lumbre” – a copper shade with a gold shift.
- Ounce (ivory shimmer)
- Chaser (light nude matte)
- Sauced (soft terra-cotta matte)
- Low Blow (brown matte)
- Lumbre (copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift)

Price and Availability :
You can pick this up from the Urban Decay stand-alone stores at some Foschini stores. They are also available online at Urban Decay website click here or on the Foschini, website click here in South Africa. The Naked palettes retail for R860 each ($54)
I absolutely love this palette, I feel that every shade is rich and matches my skin tone and green eyes perfectly. The colours match one another perfectly and the looks that I have created with the palette is cohesive and stunning. You might perceive this to be too expensive but I believe the price is reasonable. The quality and pigmentation are definitely worth the money. A little goes a long way and this palette will give last you a very long time.
