Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Palette Review & Swatches

If you were fired up over NAKED HEAT get ready for Petite Heat , the mini version Urban Decay is giving us for Spring. This is one hot little palette. Naked Petite Heat is a compact eyeshadow palette featuring six all-new scorched neutrals inspired by our own Naked Heat. With five matte shades for lid, crease and liner, plus one demi-matte highlighting shade, it has everything you need to create looks that range from soft and sultry to flat-out fire.

The ultra-compact packaging was made for travel and fits in your smallest purse. But don’t let its petite exterior fool you—it contains full-size pans of our legendary Eyeshadow and a mirror. Emblazoned with burning roses, this hot commodity will be your go-to palette. Use each shade alone or pair them up with your favorite shadows to create endless sizzling eye looks.

Some of our new favorites are Hot Spell, our latest terra-cotta obsession, and Strike, a rich reddish brown. Feel like totally going up in flames? Try Wild Thing, a burnt orange shade, or Heist, a rich cayenne, for extra spice. Better yet, you can use these matte shades as a base to pair with your 12-shade Naked Heat palette.

I am a big fan of the smaller "basics" sized palettes. They are perfect for travel and you can easily pop them in to your purse and they don't take up so much space in a alreadt crowded makeup storage. The fiery roses design on the palette is beautiful and so fitting for a Spring release.

I was a fan of the Naked Heat Palette because I don't have a lot of warm toned eyeshadows. It covered all the bases I was missing in my collection in one palette. For me, warm neutrals don't suit me well being cool-toned and pale, but I still love adding some warmth in to my looks. For those who might have thought Naked Heat was going to go mostly unused, I think the Petite version will appeal to you much more. It's slightly more subdued and wearable than the shimmery shades of burnished red, while still giving you some lively shades for warming up a look along with everyday basics.

Naked Heat Petite is a solid set of warm neutrals. The six shades have an even balance of light, medium, and dark shades letting you go from warmed up soft neutral looks to smokey brown. The matte's are fantastically pigmented, velvety, and blend out beautifully. Inhale is the only non-matte shade, it has a subtle sheen and soft peach undertone under the cream base that really brightens up the eyes. Vibrate and Hot Spell are essential crease transition colors. Wild Thing takes the bold color spot of the palette. Heist and Strike are deep but not stark. They add depth and intensity, that reddish tone in Strike wow it brings out blue and green in eyes amazingly.

If you already own NAKED Heat do you need Petite? My answer is Yes. It's the perfect companion to the original and will be a workhouse in your collection just like the rest of the Naked's. Petite has all new shades and the $29 price tag is more affordable. Quite a few of the shadows in Naked Heat were similar to each other. Petite pairs it down while working alongside Heat like an extended version of the original and it can stand alone as a cohesive set of warm basics.

Cool-toned fans don't fret because also coming for Spring from Urban Decay is BackTalk. A coordinating palette of muted-rose and soft berry eye shadows and blush. I was thinking about how I wished UD would have made a basics version for NAKED 3 and BACKTALK answers that and then some! I am so excited for that and the HI-FI shine Ultra Cushion Lipglosses to launch! They look incredible! Spring from Urban Decay is HERE. #UrbanDecay #UrbanDecayNakedHeat
