Naked Heat Review and an Urban Giveaway

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eye Palette

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, or you’ve been on my Instagram, you’ll know that I am a massive fan of Urban Decay. So I’m sure you can all imagine how excited I was when I came home from the doctors, with an all clear to my scans thank you very much, to a shiny purpley-pink parcel and inside was the newest addition to the Urban Decay Naked family; the Naked Heat.Urban Decay Naked Heat PaletteUrban Decay Naked Heat Eye Palette Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Close Up Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Close Up Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Close UpUrban Decay Naked Heat Defining Crease BrushUrban Decay Naked Heat Blending Brush

Admittedly when I first saw pictures of the Naked Heat I was a little concerned I wouldn’t be able to use it. It looked very much like it sat in the orange family, so being the strong ginger that I am I wasn’t exactly jumping with joy at the idea of my hair and my eyes clashing.

Thankfully on closer inspection I was happy to find it was more of a red to brown selection. Usually I might slightly edit the brightness or contrast of my photos, I mean don’t we all right right, but I promise you I haven’t touched these as I wanted to truly show the colours on offer. With matte warm browns, shimmering coppers and deep reds, this palette should work with all skin tones and is extremely versatile. You have the ability to create a subtle daytime look, a bold statement eye or of course my favourite for a night out a smoky eye, alongside so many in between options.

The shades are, as always, super pigmented and soft, and very easy to blend which is great for me as I have quite hooded eyes so I spend a lot of time blending my eyes out so you can actually see the colour and result I was going for. I’m by no means a pro when it comes to make up, especially the eyes, but I’ve actually been quite impressed with my skills with this palette. I have not yet had a chance to take any swatch pictures so I do apologise for being that girl that posts a review without all the information you’d want, but I just have not had the time. I will post pictures of them on my Instagram soon, and I will update this post with them when they are ready.

I created the look above using Low Blow as my base across the lid, followed up with He Devil in the inner and outer corners brushing slightly across the lid line. On the outer corner I then built the colour using Cayenne, En Fuego and finally a dash of Ember to give it a touch of smoke, and finished off with a brush of Ounce under my eyebrows for a touch of highlight, and of course Perversion Mascara. I wore this to a blogging girls day out at Junkyard Golf on Sunday and was so pleased when they all said they liked it, as I’ve not been feeling too great lately, so that definitely picked me up. I’ve since heard and seen that Em Ford from My Pale Skin Blog done a Naked Heat Tutorial and used pretty much the same shades (great minds think alike) so you should definitely check her video out, she’s fabulous!

I already have a number of Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes and I’m happy to say this did not disappoint and is as loved as the rest of my collection. As soon as I got it and sent a snap to one of my best friend she was straight online ordering it as she couldn’t get over how great it looked. The Naked Heat retails at £39.50 and is available online now, and launches in stores on the 3rd August, so just two days to wait if you’re not an online shopper.

Now I have to take a moment to say the hugest thank you to all of my readers. For sticking with me through sporadic posting, crazy Twitter updates, drunken at home karaoke Snap Stories and all the rest. To show you how much I appreciate all your ongoing support I will be running giveaways at the end of all my posts in August. There’ll be a total of 7 prizes to be won, all of which have been revealed on my Facebook page if you’d like to have a sneak peek.

Each will run for a month from the day they launch and I will reveal all the winners on Twitter and Facebook after each closes. I sent out a tweet last month asking what Urban Decay Naked Palette people would most like to win and the Naked 3 came top so I am giving one away. I have purchased all the prizes myself, all are things that I love and hope you will love too. Celebrate my birthday month and the countdown to my holiday with me, with your own potential present. Enter now, and good luck my beauties!
