Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette: Overview

This eye shadow palette comes in the traditional for the Urban Decay Naked series package that features a double-ended brush and a big mirror inside. The Naked Heat palette comes in a cardboard box, and the palette packaging itself is plastic. The colors of the shadows are red- and orange-based. We have noticed, that these eye shadows perform well over the eye shadow primer and feature way better color playoff. In general, both mattes and shimmers from this palette feature drier formula, than shadows with the same finish from the other palettes by UD. The shadows do not appear that creamy, as they appeared in the previous palettes. Yet, the mattes in this palette are more pigmented, than in the Naked Smoky palette.

Naked Urban Decay Heat: Review & Swatches

With the variety of colors, finishes and shades, there are certain things that we clearly noticed, when working with this palette. Also, the formula has got certain differences, if we compare it with the previous Urban Decay palettes.

  • Shadows blend well.
  • Deep brown shadows run together and feel like they lack contrast.
  • Formula is drier, than in the previous UD palettes.
  • Shimmer eye shadows are thinner and less pigmented.
  • Mattes feature noticeably better pigmentation.

Even though it’s matte, it does not feel dusty or chalky, and does not give fallout during the application. It is easy to work with and blend. The shadow stays for 8+ hours.


Lumbre is a reddish coral eye shadow with warm undertone and pearly finish. It features excellent color playoff and works well both over the primer and on bare skin. The texture is somewhat dry, so for even application it’s better to press the brush to pack it on the lid.

Scorched is a dark reddish brown eye shadow with metallic finish and warm undertone. The pigmentation is close to opaque and the texture is somewhat dry. Due to loosely pressed formula, it gives certain fallout during the application. Yet once it is on the eye lid, it stays well without fallout.

The En Fuego is a muted brownish plum eye shadow with matte finish and buildable pigmentation. It s texture is somewhat firm and dry, which makes it somewhat difficult to blend without getting patchy coverage. This color performs well over the primer, and works not that well on bare skin. It stays well for 8 hours without fading out or getting darker in the edges.


This is a plum eye shadow with warm brownish undertone and matte finish. The formula is somewhat dry, which makes it stiff in pan. You will have to put some effort to apply it evenly due to its dry formula, so if you want to get that even coverage, it’s better to apply primer prior to this eye shadow application. Alternatively, you can apply it on top of the other matte shadows for that deep effect. The shadow wears for 7.5 hours without creasing.

I enjoy working with this palette as a makeup artist. I like the way the colors blend together and the way they stay. My customers value my makeup for being lasting, and this palette performs long. I apply these shadows only over UD potion primer, and I totally like the way these two perform together. Colors look especially good on tan or olive skin.

I am a fan of those Naked series UD palettes. I tried a couple of other eye shadows (like Spectrum), which I did not really like. Yet thisone works exceptionally good for me and I like the formula for being soft and pigmented. I use Heat along with classic Naked and I like these two work out on my skin.

I totally love this palette, as it should work great on my tan skin in summer. I combine it with the basic Naked palette colors and I like the way the shadows blend together.
