Just when you thought you’d never need another neutral palette again, Urban Decay goes ahead and and creates the new Naked Heat Palette. While it’s still neutral, this particular palette features 12 brand new, warmed up hues that are SO HOT right now (pun intended).
So… yeah, good luck with that.
The palette features the same hardshell packaging as the Naked Smoky Palette but this time in a fiery copper shade. As usual, it also has a large interior mirror and double-ended brush. The actual packaging looks like an oversized matchbox too—a cute little detail that adds to the whole theme.
The shades are absolutely gorgeous. From warm browns to burnt reds to earthy siennas, this palette is totally on trend and super flattering. I remember thinking orange eyeshadow was something I’d never be able to pull off, but you’d be surprised how gorgeous a small sweep into the crease can look. Or if you’re already feeling the heat, make a statement with a perfectly blended sunset eye.
I think the palette does a great job of balancing out those borderline-edgy shades with some classic neutrals like creamy beige and deep burgundy. It also has a nice variety of shimmer and matte textures, which I always love to see balanced in a large palette like this one.
Here are the actual shade descriptions:
- Ounce: Ivory shimmer
- Chaser: Light nude matte
- Sauced: Soft terracotta matte
- Low Blow: Brown matte
- Lumbre: Copper shimmer with gold pearl
- He Devil: Burnt Red Matte
- Dirty Talk: Metallic burnt red
- Scorched: Mettalic Deep red with gold micro-shimmer
- Cayenne: Deep terracotta matte
- En Fuego: Burgundy matte
- Ashes: Deep reddish-brown matte
- Ember: Deep metallic copper-burgundy
Every single shade has that beautiful, buttery feel that Urban Decay is famous for, delivering intense pigmentation with a blendable texture. There’s a reason why these palettes are so iconic, and Naked Heat is no exception.
The standout shades for me? Scorched and Ember are probably two of the most beautiful, unique shades I’ve seen and I think are the shining stars of this palette (imagine doing a smokey eye with Ember!). He Devil and Cayenne are also gorgeous shades that really add the heat to this palette, while the easy-going shades like Chaser and En Fuego ensure that everyone can pull off a fiery look.
The new lipstick shades include Fuel (warm, peachy nude cream), Heat (metallized burnt red-gold) and Scorched (metallized copper). These limited edition shades come in a similar metallic tube to the rest of the Vice lineup, but feature a copper cap instead.
The textures are beautiful (even the metallic ones) and feel super creamy on the lips. Of course, I’m a bit partial to the creamy nude, but I think all three of these are going to sell out super fast.
The new eyeliner shades include Alkaline (deep wine) and Torch (sienna brown) and these will become part of the permanent 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil collection. Just as the name suggests, they glide on beautifully and don’t budge at all thanks to the waterproof formula. They are the perfect complement to the eye palette!
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette will retail for $54 and will be rolling out starting this month. There will be two opportunities to get your hands on the palette first, with 1-day flash sales happening at urbandecay.com (June 12th) and sephora.com (June 28th). The palette will then officially launch on June 30th at urbandecay.com and July 10th at sephora.com, hitting stores a few days later.
