Assistant Editor's Beauty Picks: The Naked Heat Palette


Share This Article:

Let me start this new column with a statement: I love makeup.

I love how makeup can completely change the way your face looks and how you feel as a person. 

I can wholeheartedly say that ever since I found out how to do a flick on my eyeliner, I have never been the same. 

So, I thought I would combine my love of makeup and my love of writing and begin this column where I discuss and review my top picks from the beauty industry!

First up. The Naked Heat Palette. 

I had ummed and ahhed about the palette as I'd found a lot of lukewarm reviews (heh, get it?) but I decided as the colour hues would suit my colouring - I'm a redhead with brown eyes and a yellow undertone in my skin - I would purchase the controversial palette.  

So, I swallowed my pride and paid the £39.50 (!) for the palette and promised the beauty gods I would use it religiously. 

Anyway, enough babbling - let's get into this review!

The Packaging

Urban Decay's Naked packaging is always a little hit and miss, and this one is no exception. Although I love a good red and orange colour scheme, the packaging is so chunky and big - not ideal when you're travelling.

I like the mirror inside the casing and I controversially love the brush included - both are great for blending and application.

The Shades

There are 12 shades in this palette ranging from a shimmery bone shade to a deep matte plum. There are several matte shades in this palette which I love and the shimmers are also perfect for night and day looks. 

My personal favourites in this palette include Scorched, Ounce and He Devil. I think they work best with my colouring and are really the ones that attracted me to the palette. 

My colours I don't really use include Ember, Low Blow and Ashes. Since my eyes are so dark these shades hinder me rather than help me although I'm sure they could work with different skin tones or eye colours. 


I'm not going to sugarcoat it. This palette is expensive. £39.50 is a lot to spend if you're only going to use a few colours so I'd suggest this palette for those who really think they can experiment with makeup. 

Overall, this palette is not for the faint-hearted but if you can tame it, I'm sure this palette could be the answer to your prayers!

What do you think about the Naked Heat Palette? Let me know in the comments!
