I recently did a dupes post on this here, but I though I should share the swatches I did of this palette at a Sephora recently. I’m actually in New York right now and I’ve been doing a ton of swatches from Glossier, Bite Beauty, and Sephora, so I’ll be posting those soon!
I read the review from The Anna Edit and I wasn’t interested in buying because with her review she seemed a little underwhelmed with the palette. She either disliked or wasn’t going to use 7 of the shades which is over half the palette. She wasn’t thrilled with some of the formulas and thought the colors were too bold. So for me, that cut through the hype and I decided against buying it. You can read her review here if you’re interested.
Then, I swatched it myself, and was surprised with it. I love the quality of this, and I actually really like the colors. Like a lot more than I thought I would. I like Urban Decay matte shadows, and these are no different, thought they feel more blendable then the shades from the Naked 3 palette.
This is part one of two posts: the second will discuss the other part of the Naked Heat collection including the eyeliners and lipsticks.
Ounce is a nice brow bone shade or a great shade to apply as a base for eye makeup. Chaser is light yellow-taupe shade that would look great in the crease or on the lid. Sauced is an orange shade I’m totally in love with because it’d be a perfect shade for a warm eye look that’s still wearable. This is also very similar to ember from the new Tarte sculpting palette. Finally low blow is a beautiful warm brown that I would love to put along the lash line or in the crease.
All four of these shades are matte and super pigmented. They are also incredibly smooth and the colors are very pretty.
Lumbre is a beautiful peachy-gold shade that’s shimmery and doesn’t have pieces of glitter. This palette is luckily free of the two chunky glitter shades found in the Naked 3 palette. He devil is a rusty red matte that could be blended into the crease. Dirty talk is a beautiful copper that is beautiful and metallic while scorched is a little more rosy. Both are smooth and apply very well.
Of these, all are shimmery except he devil which is matte.
The shades are more neutral. Cayenne is a stunning matte transition shade that will suit every look. This shade isn’t as original as the rest, but I still love it. En Fuego is a dark red that would look beautiful in the crease or smudged along the lash line. Ashes is a shade that reminds me of tree bark. This shade I may not use as I rarely reach for the shades towards the end of the palate, but I may use if I’m going to create a smoky eye or a winged liner. Finally ember is a smooth shimmery shade that looks like the ones at the end of the Naked 3 palette.
Overall, I’m not sure what to think of this palette. I love the colors and the quality seems good, however it’s an expensive palette and in order to be sure to buy it, I would recommend really thinking it through. Go swatch it for yourself. Read a variety of reviews. Then, decide if you really want it.
