Urban Decay is bringing the heat this summer with its newest Naked palette. It’s been about two years since the release of a Naked eye shadow palette — since 2015’s Naked Smoky — and now joining the Naked line as the fifth palette is the new Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette.
The brand new Naked palette features 12 all-new shades and manages to separate itself from its previous predecessors. Within the palette shades range from warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas as described on the packaging. Even shadows in red-browns, copper and bronze. As traditional with the Naked palette, the palette features matte and shimmer shadows.
Given that it is Summer, the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette provides shades that play perfectly into the season. The warm tones stand out with this palette and follow in the footsteps of the current summer trend. The palette provides many different options for the day, night and all day look.
Upon swatching, the shadows apply great and there’s plenty of pigment, especially in the shimmer shades. The only two shades that don’t stand out as much when swatched are ounce and chaser. Both ounce and chaser also happen to be the two lightest shades in the palette.
The palette was set to officially go on sale on Urban Decay’s website June 30th, but since it’s early exclusive on Urban Decay’s website, it is available for purchase. There have been a few times that palette has gone on sale as an early one day exclusive on Sephora’s early access and on Ulta. Ulta will officially have the new Naked Palette online for sale on June 28 and in stores July 9. Sephora will begin to sell the palette online June 28 and in stores July 13. The palette will be going for $54.
Not only will the palette go on sale, but three new lipsticks and two 24/7 glide-on eye pencils will be joining the Naked Heat palette as part of a collection. The three Heat Vice lipsticks will be available in the shades scorched, heat and fuel. Ulta describes the lipsticks as Scorched being a metallic copper, Heat as a burnt red and gold pearl, and Fuel as a warm peachy nude. Scorched and heat are metalics, meanwhile fuel is a cream lipstick.
The 24/7 glide-on pencils will be available in the shades Torch and Alkaline. The lipsticks and the eyeliner pencils are limited edition and will launch the same day as the palette.
If you happen to be a fan of the Naked palettes, the Heat palette won’t disappoint. The range of warm colors and the pigment of the shadows work great and blend perfectly. It’s definitely one of those palettes you need in your collection. The warm tones should work great on all skin tones and provide those neutral looks for the summer.
