The new Naked palette by “Urban Decay” Cosmetics is one that I wasn’t as highly anticipating it’s launch as I was the others and a bit surprised when I saw there was another one coming out. But, when I saw the sunset earthy colors of this one I was really excited because it is so beautiful and different than the other Naked palettes. I think the most favorite palette of mine in the preceding ones is the Naked 3 palette which has all the rose golds, mauves, pinks, taupes, and plums that drew me to it because of the gorgeous soft romantic shades that were perfect for a bridal palette or bridesmaids makeup for weddings. The colors in the Naked Heat Palette are full of gorgeous rusts, browns, ivories, camels, and ambers both mattes and shimmers. There are some good transition colors, pops of color, and smokey shades to play around with several different looks whether its a smokey nighttime or a neutral daytime look.
It comes in once again and like the others another sturdy and solid plastic cased rectangle palette that I think is one of the most pretty of the palettes with a clear plastic top in the same rusty sunset colors as the eyeshadows in the palette. It also comes with the same double ended brush with a shader type application style and blending/fluff type end. The shadows are all very pigmented; even the mattes and she shimmers are all intense range from light to heavy pigmentation and all of them are easy to apply and very blendable. May favorites are “Enfuego” (an earthy burgundy red), “He Devil” (a earthy rust cay pepper matte), “Cayenne” (a matte dusty red), and (wait for it…..this one takes my breath away) “Ember” (an almost liquid metal tarnished flame gold burgundy…words cannot express this shade). The formula and pigmentation of the shades in this palette I think may be or are some of the best in any of the palettes to date.
So, if you love Urban Decay (and what makeup lover doesn’t), you will love this palette and I would have to say it is a must have to own and a perfect summer or fall color makeup look and a good staple color palette to have in your makeup repertoire that you can create many different looks with.
