Since the nights have gotten longer, I’ve been loving wearing a slightly more dramatic eye look at night. As someone who lives in a subtle smokey brown during the day, it’s an easy thing to build on, and Urban Decay’s newest Naked palette – Heat is such a versatile addition to my collection.

Packaged in undoubtedly the most eye-catching packaging of the NAKED line up, it’s not a palette which you’re going to lose in your stash. Like the rest of the NAKED options, you get 12 shadows and a double ended brush.

The shade choice in the palette feels like the most dramatic of any of the NAKED palettes. With a majority of the shadows falling into the rusty, burnt red category, if you’re looking to warm up your eye looks, this is the palette for you!

The left hand of the palette has the few cooler tones, with shadows which feel more like base choices. The lightest shade, Quince gives a beautifully subtle sheen in the inner corners and on the brow bone. Chaser is a perfect all over lid choice, whilst Sauced gives lids a hint of warmth and definition.

The middle of the palette has some of the real show-stoppers! Whilst Low Brow, is the perfect liner shade, smudged into lashes for casual definition, Lumbre is a metallic rose chrome made for creating a show-stopping look. Perhaps the reddest shade in the palette is He-Devil (I’ve not been quite brave enough to give this one a go yet), Dirty Talk is a bronze-based shimmer which is super blendable, and Scorched feels like a pinker version of Dirty Talk.

The palette finishes up with some of the deepest, most sophisticated shades you can imagine. Cayenne is a warm, russet-toned orange, whilst En Fuego is an almost beetroot red. For some dramatic definition, I am obsessed with Ashes – the rich plum shade feels incredibly grown up. The final shade, Ember, is a smokey eye in a single shadow. Reserved for evenings when I want to go all-out, it’s a real showstopper.

As with all eyeshadows from Urban Decay, the colour payoff is great, and they’re all easy to blend. The double ended brush is easy to wield, and even though I tend to stick to my regular shadow brushes, it’s always good to have a spare! Also, the huge mirror is such a godsend for when you’re in the mood to do your eyes on the go!

Urban Decay NAKED Heat is priced at £39.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
