Like most of the beauty-loving world, I loved the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette (which I reviewed here), so I was so excited to get my hands on the new Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat palette – a miniature, matte spin-off of the warm-toned release of last year.
The Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat palette* (£26 from Urban Decay) is so slim and handbag-friendly, and has a great mirror inside. Unlike the original Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, which contained a mixture of matte, shimmer and metallic shades, this palette has mattes (and one demi-matte) only.
There are six shades – from left to right they are Inhale (a cream demi-matte), Vibrate (a soft nude matte), Hot Spell (a terra-cotta matte), Wild Thing (a scorched-orange matte), Heist (a rich cayenne matte), and Strike (a rich reddish-brown matte). All of these are new shades and aren’t included in the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette.
All of the shades are super-pigmented, but like most matte shadows, there is a lot of fall-out with these, so make sure you give your brush a good tap after picking up shadow, before applying to your lids. You can really pack these shades on, or blend them out for a more subtle look. Urban Decay say it best when they say you can “create looks that range from soft and sultry to flat-out fire”.
I really love warm eye looks, so I created a softer look with a few of the shades, to give you an idea of what this palette can do. I used Inhale over the lid and up to the brow bone, then I blended Wild Thing through the crease, and then Heist all over the lid. I’m looking forward to when the weather is warmer and I’m wearing a bit more bronzer, as I think the more intense shades will look amazing packed on for a more dramatic, firey look in the sunshine.
