Feeling The Heat With Urban Decay

With the recent change in the weather seasons and the wardrobe transitions, it’s time to think about make up transition too

I recently spent a week vacation in the beautiful Algarve in Portugal and while I was at the airport waiting to go to the departure gate I couldn’t help but treat myself to a new make up from Duty Free

I was heading out to sun, sea and sand and despite already having a couple of my travel eye shadow palettes with me I found myself very drawn to one of the newest Urban Decay palettes which I yet had purchased for my collection, HEAT

Heat is perfectly presented in keeping with the rest of the Urban Decay palette designs, a long plastic palette encasing 12 shades, along with a double ended applicator brush for blending and crease detailing, and of course a full sized mirror in the lid

HEAT Palette Colour Guide

Ounce (ivory shimmer)
Chaser (light nude matte)
Sauced (soft terra-cotta matte)
Low Blow (brown matte)
Lumbre (copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift)
He Devil (burnt red matte)
Dirty Talk (metallic burnt red)
Scorched (metallic deep red w/gold micro-shimmer)
Cayenne (deep terra-cotta matte)
En Fuego (burgundy matte)
Ashes (deep reddish-brown matte)
Ember (deep metallic copper-burgundy)

The colours are warm and rich, they all have a velvety texture which makes application and blending easier along with the staying power once applied

The mixture between matte and shimmer gives you the opportunity to play with the colours to transition your looks from Day to Night all with the one palette

I can see this being a firm favourite for me this Summer as the sultry colours are very complimentary on my skin before and after I got a tan, the colour palette has a glorious mix which I can use as day to day wear, as well as for more glamorous occasions

I would 100% recommend this colour palette to anyone looking to enhance their Summer colour range this year, I have a light/medium skin tone and feel this works well with my features too

The cost of the palette is on the higher end retailing at £39.50 however, you are getting 12 different colours which include both matte and shimmer

You can shop for the palette here with Urban Decay in their online shop

Urban Decay are also a concession in a lot of high street department stores where you can swatch the colours for yourself
