Urban Decay Is Dropping a Half-Price Version of Your Favorite Naked Palette
Time flies when a new eyeshadow palette drops every five minutes, which makes it all the more impressive when one like Urban Decay’s Naked Heat consistently stays on best-seller lists. Eight months after its release, the brand is following up on Naked Heat’s success with a spin-off set of curated shades. Named the Naked Petite Heat palette, the six-pan compact features the same terracottas and burnished reds, this time in a matte-only collection.
Releasing a workhorse-only cut of a larger palette’s shades isn’t unusual for Urban Decay, which used a similar strategy with its Naked and Naked2 palettes. Those two brought us the smaller, matte-only Naked Basics and Naked2 Basics palettes; while not the most exciting, the two are beloved for their accessible, everyday-friendly colors. The Naked Petite Heat follows suit, albeit in a more vibrant color range. The $29 palette features tones you’ll recognize from the original, with a pale, slightly shimmery highlight shade, a sand, a red-orange, a red-based brown, and a deep plum-purple color. Notably absent are the jewel-toned metallics that Urban Decay palettes are known for, but that’s common policy for the smaller, edited takes.
The Petite Heat’s shadow names don’t overlap with those in the original Naked Heat, but they’re close enough to call dupes (or “all-new,” depending on whether you’re reading marketing copy). Following classic palette protocol, Urban Decay swatched the six shades on Instagram.

If it feels like every brand out there has come out with its own spin on the red palette trend, you’re not wrong. Still, the Petite Heat’s condensed set of oranges, tans, and plum reads fresh, thanks to the shock of purple. Is that enough to warrant a buy? We’ll just leave this link to shop it, here.
