Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette - it's almost too hot to handle

When it comes to colour launches, especially eye palettes, well, my mind immediately springs to Urban Decay and the Naked family of palettes. Iconic, the 'need' to own the latest launch is overwhelming with the palette selling out in the States on its launch and the tiny preview launch in the UK, saw it gone in minutes.
And, here we are again, Urban Decay Naked Heat eye palette, launching on their website today - yes, that's today right here! It will launch through other stockists in August also.
Here are my first impressions...

Urban Decay Naked Heat, was it too hot to handle?

As is often the case with colour, until you have the actual product in front of you the quality and colours are hard to judge. Lighting and swatches vary, even on camera, it's hard to see the astounding depth and warmth of this palette.
This is a palette for all seasons and I absolutely love it, I honestly, didn't think I would, I saw the reviews and basically saw a lot of brown and orange, I felt deflated. Then, I was lucky enough to receive this PR sample, as soon as I opened the lid and saw the depth of colour, the warmth, the burnt oranges, the reds, the coppers, corals and the sultry browns, it was an artists palette I couldn't wait to dip my brush into.

This palette has 12, all new shades, matte, shimmer, metallic, smooth as silk application, the metallic apply and look like foil on the lids, the colour is as true as the colour in the pan, the payback is their best so far.
I couldn't wait to apply the next colour and the next, each one giving the most beautiful tone and amber hued richness to my eyes.

The design of the Naked Heat palette is based around a match box, you slide the packaging away and reveal the palette that allows you to peek through blinds into a hot sultry day that is represented by this palette.

Each shade offers so much for a look, start with Ounce, gentle and subtle, work through to Lumbre, where the fun starts for me, this coral/orange is the sunshine for the lids, Scorched is the most beautiful copper red, warm, rich and extravagant, En Fuego is a matte finish, smooth like the best cup of coffee, rich and bold. The Ashes and Ember shades are the ends of the palette chapter with their matte and shimmer textures, beautifully rich and perfect for lining the eye, making a statement cut crease or just piling on and showing the world how hot you are.

Each shadow features the Urban Decay Pigment Infusion System using ingredients that give the shadows their smooth velvety texture, strong rich colour, bendability and their staying power.
Urban Decay has set alight the makeup world, the Naked Heat palette has the strongest shades, yet, each transition into the next giving a seamless finish to your look. The application is smooth as silk, I had no fall out from using this palette, see the video here, stunningly rich colours, true payback and so many looks waiting to be discovered.
The Heat palette has a magnetic closure, full-length mirror in the lid and one of their dual ended brushes, ideal for eyeshadow application, of course, and a lovely shaped crease brush which could also be used to blend shadows.
After all that, here's a look I created, you can also see the application on my YOUTUBE channel here!
