Hello my pumpkins and welcome back,
In today’s post, I am going to be reviewing Urban Decay’s latest Naked Palette, a.k.a the Naked Heat Palette. I’ve been so impatient to buy this palette and I am so happy I finally have it! I am telling you from now on, I LOVE THIS PALETTE and I’ve been wearing it non-stop since I got it.
Now let’s dive into the review
So first of all, the palette comes in a well-decorated box that slides out [unlike the previous Naked Palette]. The box itself is very pretty, I really love all the details and the designs [burning roses, matches], everything matches very well the concept of ‘Heat’ and gives a hint of the eyeshadows’ color scheme.
The packaging of the palette itself is very different than the previous naked palettes: first, I really love the color of the palette which is metallic orange. Second, I love how on the top cover, there are two layers: the first layer being those lines and the second layer being where the name of the palette is [in 3D]. In general, I like how this whole palette was designed to look ‘hot’.
Like all Urban Decay’s palette, this one contains a big mirror, 12 shades and one double-ended brush. Which brings me to say that this palette is perfect for traveling.
Now let’s move on to the formula of the eyeshadows.
This palette contains 12 warm-toned shades [matte, metallic and shimmer]. I absolutely love the color scheme of this palette, I just love fall colors and this palette is perfect for fall. On top of that, you can create diverse looks, from day time to night time.
Now, how they perform: all of them are so freaking pigmented, like unbelievably pigmented, they apply and blend so easily, they are buildable and they feel very buttery. The only shade I had a problem with is the purple shade, ‘ashes’, I think it’s the only shade that is very chalky [check the swatches below, right to left: ‘Ember’ to ‘Sauced’]
I purchased this palette for 65$ [it costs 54$ on Urban Decay’s Website] which is a lot but if you think about it, the packaging is stunning, you have a big mirror, a dual-ended brush [which is good] and 12 shades that are very pigmented, So please, 65$ is fair. Furthermore, if this palette costs 65$, it means each individual shade costs around 5.4$.
My Final Thoughts
In conclusion, I am so happy with this palette, I don’t regret spending that much money on it, I think it is really worth it because the formula of the eyeshadows [like all Urban Decay’s palettes] is on point, the shades are everything and the packaging is amazing [perfect to keep in your makeup collection]. I think this palette is a must-have for this season, I know I’ll be using it a lot.
+ If you don’t like warm-toned colors like burnt orange or warm browns then you will hate this palette. And if you don’t intend to use all of the shades that this palette offers, then I don’t advice you to buy it.

Do you think I should change the name of my blog? I’m starting to think ‘Joy The Witch’ is kind of childish. What do you think?
