When Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette was released, everyone wanted to have it! I was no exception of course! How does one refuse 12 smoking hot shades! Especially when I have a feeling that the warm eyeshadow trend doesn’t seem to go away anytime soon!
I have almost all of Urban Decay Naked palettes. The hype and the obsession to have a complete collection makes me want to have them all! I have had Naked Heat Palette for a few months now, but never got around to review it. Being drawn to warm eyeshadows, Naked Heat Palette has been a pleasure to use and then Urban Decay goes and drops another show-stopping headline – Naked Petite Heat!
Now as usual, Urban Decay kills the game with its packaging. Naked Petite Heat looks incredible hot yet super cute at the same time. As I scrolled through my Instagram feed, I joined many others and put Petite Heat Palette on my wish-list. Since I already have the Naked Heat Palette, I was dithering whether I truly need it or not. I must admit I nearly pulled the purchase trigger on numerous occasions. I was extremely happy when I saw Naked Petite Heat in a generous parcel from Urban Decay. I felt less torn and rather complete!
Which is better Naked Petite Heat or Naked Heat you might ask?
Firstly, let’s admire the eye-catching, red hot packaging!
And now a closeup of both palettes together.
The Naked Petite Heat Palette was inspired by Naked Heat Palette and contains all new shades. I do find there are similar shades in the Naked Heat Palette. Personally, I find the quality of the eyeshadows in the Petite Heat slightly better, a little more creamy to the touch, less powder kick-ups and less patchy.
People have been commenting on the lack of contrast between shades in the Naked Heat Palette, I do have to say I echo that. However I do use almost every shades in the Naked Heat Palette which is great. I find Lumbre a little gritty. I also find En Fuego and Ashes are a little dry and patchy. I adore the 2 shimmer shades, Dirty Talk and Scorched. They are quite similar on the eyes with Scorched (my favourite) being more intense and striking. The only shade I haven’t really used much is Embre, a very pigmented deep plum with a pink metallic duochrome, not quite sure where to fit it into my looks yet:) That said, I think Naked Heat palette is a pretty good palette, not perfect but quite effortless to use.
Doesn’t Naked Petite Heat Palette look absolutely perfect in the above capture! It features six shades, five mattes and one satin finish.
INHALE – warm light beige, satin finish
VIBRATE – warm light peach, matte finsih
HOT SPELL – warm orange, matte finish
WILD THING – warm bright rusty orange, matte finish
HEIST – warm medium dark orange, matte finish
STRIKE – deep plummy brown, matte finish
With just these 6 shades, you can just do a wash of colour with Hot Spell or Wild Thing; go natural looking with the first 3 lightest shades or go real smoky with Strike on the mobile lids.
You will see in the swatch comparison below that Wild Thing is beautiful bright orange, quite different from any shades in Naked Heat Palette. Strike is similar to Ashes with much better pigmentation and blendability.
The shades from both palettes last well on my oily lids (primed), 6-8 hours before I notice some fading.
Admittedly, both are very pretty looking palettes. If you travel a lot, prefer matte eyeshadows and gravitate towards smaller palettes then Naked Petite Heat is definitely the winner. Naked Heat will give you more options for looks with some striking shimmers. I have to say I have been reaching for Naked Petite Heat a little more for quick, effortless warm eye looks…
