The Warm Eyeshadow Palette You Need

It's no secret that I love Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, although I've not been excited by them for a good couple of years now. I locked down Naked 1 and Naked 2, but then wasn't fussed about any others, and although the all matte Ultimate Basics palette is gorgeous, I knew I didn't need it. But, when I saw the photos of the Naked Heat palette, I knew I had to have it...

I love a warm bronzey brown eye, so this is perfect. Complete with pale shades to highlight and leave a blank canvas on the eye, to plenty of warm shimmers and rich matte colours, and shades perfect to use as a soft liner, this is a fab palette. I love the quality of Urban Decay shadows - I find that they blend really well and last a long time on the eyes, and this one is no exception despite those photos of dodgy swatches that popped up when the palette was announced. I actually think they're super creamy compared to the mattes (which I still love!) in the Naked 1 and Naked 2, so I'm wondering if they've improved their formula.

I will admit that the shimmers in the middle of the palette are a bit more pink that I had originally thought from photos online, so they're not my absolute favourites for everyday wear but they are gorgeous and I know I'll reach for them when I want a more glam eye look. But, I adore the matte browns. They all lean orangey-red and are perfect for a warm crease colour or to use all over. I've personally been loving Low Blow or Cayenne all over the lid with Ounce as an inner corner highlight for a chill look. For me, these browns totally steal the palette.

I know I jumped on the hype train for this one, but I'm happy I did. It's gorgeous and great quality and will probably be the palette I take on holiday with me as the packaging is nice and sturdy (as much as I adore it, I don't trust my Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette in a suitcase!). I managed to bag this in a pre-sale as I was an eager beaver, but if you weren't lucky enough to jump on it then, the Naked Heat palette will be released on the 27th July!
