Urban Decay Heat Palette | Review

Hello, Darlings!

I have had this palette for almost a year now and it has to be one of the most used eyeshadow palettes that I have in my collection. In my collection, I have a variety of different eyeshadow palettes but for some reason, I never seem to have enough of them? they are so many out there to choose from.

Urban Decay was founded nearly 20 years ago when they decided it was time to add purples, greens etc into the makeup routine rather than the usual reds, beige and pinks which were dominating the market. Not only have urban decay brought out some amazing bright products out so many other brands have too.

When it comes to eyeshadows I am completely random when I choose because I like to have a variety of shades to choose from. I never choose his palette personally but my partner bought it for me for my 27th birthday last year as he knows how much I love urban decay products. I started to love urban decay products near my 16th birthday as I was drawn into the packaging and the variety of products they have and that still hasn't changed.

Naked Heat comes in a variety of different products including this full-size palette, lipsticks and a petite palette too. This palette costs £39.50 for 12 eyeshadows. The shadows are warm amber-hued shades with burnt orange, warm browns and deep reds. Urban Decay are a cruelty-free company (owned by parent company Loreal) and has a variety of vegan make too.

So the Urban Decay Heat palette has 12 eyeshadows inside and for me, they remind me of the autumn leaves with the burnt orange, reds and ambers. I think the selection of shades is lovely and warm too as they have a fair few too choose from in it. It has different textures including mattes and shimmery shades such as the copper. This palette is all you need for sultry daytime looks and to take you into intense nighttime looks; the choice is yours.

The packaging of this is just divine and I can't fault it one bit. It comes in a nice sturdy box that shows on the smashed shades on the front of the box. It opens from the side like a drawer and I don't know why but I just love how quirky that is. The palette is very strong and has a gorgeous design which is inspired by the shades inside the palette with a nice raised design with the products name. Inside the palette, it has a generous size mirror with a double-sided makeup brush.

The eyeshadows themselves are mostly creamy and just a dream to apply and to blend. Some of them are a little more chalky but they do blend well on the skin once on but with a little bit of fallout.

So what are the eyeshadow shades inside?

Eyeshadow shades included:
Ounce (ivory shimmer) This has the most fallout out but it's a lovely ivory shade that blends like a dream and works wonderfully as a highlighter too. 
Chaser (light nude matte) This works lovely as a cut crease or to add definition to an eyeshadow look. I like to add this with an ounce. 
Sauced (soft terra-cotta matte) Another lovely shade that I like to use combined with the darker shades to add a smokey eye look.
Low Blow (brown matte) Not only is this a lovely creamy shadow it also works well as a contour product. I like to use this to define my nose before adding a highlighter. 
Ugh, this is my favourite shade, its just love Lumbre (copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift) This has to be my favourite shade in the palette as it suits every style of makeup I do. It's a lovely shimmery copper that shimmers in the sunlight. 
He Devil (burnt red matte) Very intense shade that looks lovely combined with ember and ivory.
Dirty Talk (metallic burnt red) This is another beautiful shimmery shade that looks very nice whatever time of the day. I like to use this with en Fuego and chaser. 
Scorched (metallic deep red w/gold micro-shimmer) I can have 2 favourites right? This is just lovely with lumbre and ivory. 
Cayenne (deep terra-cotta matte) Holy smokes batman this is a super pigmented shade that only requires a small amount of product for the desired look. stunning. 
En Fuego (burgundy matte) I like to use this with the shimmery shades of the palette as it adds definition easily. 
Ashes (deep reddish-brown matte) Perfect for eyeshadow looks and for me personally I like to use it on my brows too as its intense and super long lasting.
Ember (deep metallic copper-burgundy) I like to use this as an eyeshadow when I wear my lush wigs cherry lipgloss wig. It's just a lovely red.

I honestly love this palette and I cannot praise it any more than I have already. I wear this eyeshadow palette most days as you can see from my Instagram photos. If you love heat inspired shades then this palette is definitely for you. I definitely recommend it if you love long lasting and easy to apply shadows as urban decay are up there with the top eyeshadow brands.
