URBAN DECAY NAKED HEAT PALETTE REVIEW AND SWATCHES

When I first saw this palette I think I was the only person on the planet that wasn't too bothered about getting it. I had no intention of purchasing it until my friend convinced me that it was beautiful and that I needed it in my life. She's someone that I look up to and has insane makeup knowledge, so I trusted her and invested in a palette that I had no idea would become a staple in my life, and part of my daily makeup routine. It's obvious that if you don't like warm tones that this palette is not for you, but if you love warm hues or just want to get a palette for the autumn days, I urge you to check the Naked Heat palette out.
The warm hued palette comes with 12 shades tucked away in breathtaking packing. Easily the most stunning looking Naked palette yet. I absolutely adore the packing. I prefer this over the tin cases or the velvet case from the Naked 1, 2 & 3. The plastic feels more luxurious and the double layer front shows how much thought they've put into it.
L-R, Ounce, Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow, Lumbre and He Devil.
L-R, Dirty Talk, Scorched, Cayenne, En Fuego, Ashes amd Ember.

If I'm being completely honest, there's only one shade in this palette that I do not like with all the rest being insanely blendable, pigmented and gorgeous. I know the Urban Decay formula well after getting almost every palette since the second book of shadows, so I knew what to expect. Again, Urban Decay hasn't disappointed. Keep reading for a quick sentence or two on each shade.

Ounce - A soft cream shade with a hint of shimmer which isn't too noticeable. Makes a really pretty highlight on pale princesses.
Chaser - This shade is great if you're super pale like me and needs a barely there shade in the crease for a quick wake-me-up look.
Sauced - Is a great transition shade or swept over the lid. Super pigmented.
Low Blow - I like using this to darken up Sauced as a transition shade. Again like all matte shades in this palette, it's really pigmented.
Lumre - This is a super pretty shimmery peachy red which I love in the centre of the lid.
He Devil - A gorgeous dark red hued brown which looks intense all over the lid and blended out.
Dirty Talk - A really velvety shadow that has great pigmentation and blends well over the lid.
Sorched - This has the same constancy of Dirty Talk and catches the light beautifully.
Cayenne - A shade that's pretty similar to He Devil, only slightly darker and more brown.
En Fuego -  This is a favourite for me, and I love taking my outer corners to the next level with this shade.
Ashes - Pigmented and perfect for darkening the lash line.
Ember - I don't like this shade. This is the only shade in the palette that I had difficulty with. It didn't blend how I wanted and it seemed to get really muddy. The only way I can use this is using a light transition shade and patting this onto the lid with no blending.
Since getting this I reach for this almost daily and if I'm in a rush and need a palette that has it all for an easy autumn look, this is it. I almost never reach for my other Naked palettes so it's really refreshing to use this in almost every look and it gets me excited for future Naked palettes. All the shades are pigmented and beautiful - so if you like the colours in this palette, it's going to be an investment. 

You can pick this beauty up from Debenhams
here for £39.50.
