Hey Everyone!! So worst blogger alert again as I have had this blog post pending for the last week but I honestly haven't had the time to check and complete it, it's been pretty hectic my end. But all exciting stuff and I finally have a holiday booked to Majorca in September which will be mine and my boyfriends first proper beach holiday together, just us. I'm so excited it's unreal. Four years of uni life meant I could never really afford it and going away with my parents just isn't the same as it used to be so one week away has been booked, Majorca, sun, sea, cocktails, happy Katie!! **
So with all things summer holiday in mind, Urban Decay have smashed it again with this gorgeous edition of their 'Naked' line - Naked Heat. Now I haven't actually ever owned any of the previous Naked palettes and only one of their highlighters, but when I saw this palette released on the John Lewis website, I felt it was abit of me and a perfect start to my Naked palette collection.
The theme of the palette is 'heat', and as you can see in the images, it is all warm toned colours including a mixture of mattes and shimmers. It goes in order of lighter natural shades to your more smokey looks, all with the theme of fire and heat. The packaging is top quality with a sliding cardboard box outer packaging and then a hard plastic case for the eye shadows with a large mirror. The shades are all named and it comes with a double ended brush, which from reading previous reviews, on to expect good things when it comes to Urban Decay brushes.
The colours all swatches beautifully, "chaser" was a little to similar to my skin colour to show but this would make a great base transitional colour for me because of that. My favourite colours are definitely "sauced" and "he devil", although very different I feel like these would look really cool in an eye look, the shade of reds and really on trend and I believe hey will suit a range of skin colours, especially darker skins/olive skins.
Not going to hide away from the fact my swatch pictures came out rubbish. This wasn't the palettes fault and more so that my camera wouldn't pick the colours up so clearly but to give you an idea, I guess, in a natural, non ring light settings here's what came out my end using a normal dry finger swatch:
All in all a beautiful palette, I'm so excited to see what looks I come up with! Although it's based for summer and heat, I think it'll be really versatile for the Autumn months too! I shall keep you updated!!
