I treated myself to two palettes from the Reloaded collection of four – Newtrals 2 and this one. Newtrals’ warm tones really appealed to me but what really drew me to this one was its likeness to the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette.
I’ve been eyeing up the Naked Heat Palette since its release as I love how the chilli pepper tones have translated into such beautiful eyeshadows. When I saw this pretty much perfect dupe from Makeup Revolution, my bank account gave a sigh of relief! This palette costs only £4 compared to Naked Heat which retails for around £40.
There are some absolutely gorgeous shadows in this palette and one in particular actually blows my mind. It is the last shade on the bottom row – a black/brown with a duochrome red/orange effect. It’s amazing! I keep swatching it on my hand and gasping each time!
As usual, I swatched the colours in natural light after dipping my finger in each pan and swirling it around twice.
Can you see how pigmented those eyeshadows are? There isn’t one that is a dud or a let down. The shimmers are especially easy to work with and are surprisingly creamy and buttery when you consider the tiny price tag. There are some shades which are perfect for the crease and some bold brights that will look incredible all over the lid. I’m loving the possibilities with this palette!
