I’m a true beauty lover and an Urban Decay palette was still missing in my stash. The past years I’ve lost my passion for make-up because I was busy with my study. Now that I’m graduated, I have enough time to get back into my passion: make-up.
I decided to treat myself with my first Urban Decay palette and I bought the newest Naked Heat palette because I already had the Too Faced Natural Eye palette which contains cool tones. So, I wanted something different and decided to go for a warm toned palette and which is better than an Urban Decay palette? Before buying it I searched for some reviews but I couldn’t really find swatches with a skin tone like mine. So, if you still have any doubts and a skin tone similar to mine; I hope this gives you the information you need.
Let’s start with the package. It really looks gorgeous! I don’t know why, but it gives my that J.Lo feeling. I like the design and the colors. The other Naked palettes comes within a tin package and this one is total plastic. The palette contains 12 colors in warm tones with 5 shimmery colors and 7 mattes.. I love the colors and it is really different than the other Naked Palettes by Urban Decay. It comes with a two-sided brush and a mirror. I like the blendside of the brush to blend in my transition color.
The first color, Ounce, is a nice highlight color with a pearl finish. I use this one under my browbone and inner corner. The next 3 shades; Chaser, Sauced and Low Blow, are matte and lighter than the other shades in this palette which I like to use for my everyday looks.
To finish this look I wear it with my Nars Done it again lipstick. This is one of my favorite go-to looks. It’s easy to do and very fast to make.
I’ve been using Lumbre and He Devil for another everyday look. This look is a little bit more heavy and shiny. Lumbre is one of my favorite shades of this palette. It’s a coppery shade with rose/gold shimmers.
For this look I used Dirty Talk and Cayenne in the crease and Lumbre on my eyelid. I blended He Devil under my lashline and connected it with my outer corner.
I haven’t been using the last three shades yet because these are more for heavy looks. I prefer wearing those for a night out. But so far I like the pigmentation of the shades.
Before applying the shadows I apply a layer of the Urban Decay Eye primer to make the eyeshadow last longer and not creasing. The shadows are highly pigmented and easy to blend. The only thing I’m struggling with is that some colors look a little the same when blending out. Like He Devil and Dirty Talk. The finish is only a little bit different.
You can create everyday looks or more heavy looks for a night out with this palette. I’m very happy with this palette and it’s definitely a palette I would pack for my holidays. It was worth the money and a real addition to my stash.
Favorite shades: Lumbre and Dirty talk
