URBAN DECAY NAKED HEAT PALETTE
The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette might just be the most-talked-about palette of the year – and for good reason too! Urban Decay is well known for doing things differently, taking risks and being edgy. While their range includes everything from primers, to lipsticks and setting sprays, one of their biggest claims to fame is their Naked Palettes, offering 12 eyeshadows. The Naked Heat Palette is no different and brings the fire to their already popular range with a palette that features warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas with a good blend of mattes and shimmer finishes. Created to look flattering on any skin tone, this is one of those palettes that offers limitless potential.
