The palette that is everywhere currently

Urban Decay Naked heat*

This palette is everywhere at the moment and for good reason. I love the Naked palette range and was incredibly excited when they announced the release. I actually couldn't believe when this came through the door from Urban decay. I was actually that excited I made my Brother bring it me to where we were on holiday. What I love about this is that it has a lot more matte shades than previous palettes which is a huge issue with the other naked palettes.
This one has 7 matte shades and 5 shimmer which I feel like is a really good mix as you can create both completely matte and mixed matte and shimmer looks. so without further ado lets get into the shade breakdown.
First off we have Ounce which is a beautiful slightly satin pale cream shade which makes a gorgeous brow bone and inner corner highlight. Next up we have Chaser which is the perfect matte cream shade. This makes the perfect transition for a really subtle look. Then we have the shade that I have been reaching for as my transition shade which is Sauced, this is a warm toned very cream brown which reminds me of makeup geek frappe. This is just the perfect transition on my pale skin tone and is one I have reached for every time I have used the palette. Then we have Low blow which is a slightly darker and slightly more yellow toned brown than sauced. This one is perfect for deepening p the transition a little and would make a beautiful transition shade alone on a more medium skin tone.
Onto possibly my favourite shade in the palette we have Lumbre which is the most beautiful duo chrome pinky peach which is perfect for a lid colour. Then we have He Devil which is a medium terracotta shade, this I feel is going to be another one of the shades which I reach for on the regular as it is a gorgeous shade to add some more warmth to the crease. Then we have another shimmery shade which is Dirty talk which is a really lovely true copper toned orange. This one looks so gorgeous all over the lid as either a quick wash of colour or a base for a more dramatic look. Next we have Scorched which is a much pinkier toned orange. This one looks beautiful paired with lumbre as they both have that slight pink undertone.
My favourite of the deeper shades has to be Cayenne which is the darkest of the true orange shades, I would say this one was just the darker version of he devil meaning that they work beautifully together. Then we have En fuego which is a more purple toned warm shade this one is the shade I would use to deepen if I didn't want to use the super dark brown. The second to last shade is Ashes which I would say is definitely the most cool toned out of the palette. Finally we have Ember which is a stunning metallic brown with red shimmer which is so gorgeous all over the lid with something like he devil to blend out.
I am really in love with all of the shadows in this palette. I have no issues with any of the shades and the formula is beautiful as with all urban decay shadows. If you are a lover of Warm tones I would definitely recommend giving this one a go as it is stunning. I also think this would be a really nice palette to introduce someone into to warm tones as it isn't too intense pink or red. So that's it for today, I would love to know what your opinions are on this palette!
