Products: 
The shimmer and satin shade all were nice to work with and pigmented as well. The shimmer shades can be foiled (applied wet) to intensify the metallic look of them.

The mattes are improved with this palette which is a good thing considering 8 of the shades are matte. They are slightly powder but smooth to apply and blend out. I found the shades En Fuego & Ashes on the drier side with Ashes being stiffer and prone to sheering out.

Colour:
Ounce is a warm ivory shimmer with a satin finish.
Chaser is a pale camel nude with a matte finish.
Sauced is a light tan with a matte finish.
Low Blow is a yellow based light brown with a matte finish.
Lumbre is a peach with a gold shimmer finish.
He Devil is a burnt terracotta red with a matte finish.
Dirty Talk is a red copper with a shimmer finish.
Scorched is a rust red with a gold shimmer finish.
Cayenne is a deep terracotta with a matte finish.
En Fuego is a is a dusty burgundy brown with a matte finish.
Ashes is a deep warm brown with a matte finish.
Ember is a deep burgundy bronze with a metallic finish.This shade has a blackened base with it to promote the shine.

Wear: 8 hours for the shimmery and satin shades on bare skin and 6 hours for the mattes.

Packaging: 
The same updated palette as the Electric and Smokey palettes,  the hinge stays in position so you can use the mirror on the lid without it flopping around. It feels nicely structure compare to the other metal cases. This a little lighter as well compare to the other Naked palettes but a tiny bit thicker by 3mm. This palette also used a nice and strong magnetic closure instead of plastic snaps.

This palette has a slightly thicker lid to allow for the Shadowbox style framework for the metal slats to reside like a heating vent. The branding is done in gold plastic on the clear window with what looks like heat off of a flame swirling on the artwork behind the slats. The plastic is a case pearl metallic burnt orange.

The brush has a fluff shadow end to pack on a blend the eyeshadows and the other end it fluffy blender brush.

Compare.
Morphe 35OS palette turned 90 degrees in the photo, Urban Decay Freelove single eyeshadow,
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, & Natasha Denonna Sunset palette.
The Morphe 35OS has a few shimmer shades that work for the shimmers in this Naked Heat palette but not all of them. Swatches are base on the by horizontal row and shade like in my review post here.

The Natasha Denonna Sunset palette as a mix of matte and shimmer shades that are similar.

The first 4 shades which are matte in the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette I don't have direct dupes for, but I feel like they are not soo unique you need exact dupes either.

The Natasha Denonna Sunset palette Vulcano 125CM is a warmer and slightly brighter compared to Urban Decay Ashes.

The Morphe 35OS Row 3 shade 4 is a bright, warm copper compared to Urban Decay Ember.

Verdict:
This is a solid palette overall with an emphasis on matte shades compared to Urban Decays other palettes. My complaint it's not a very hot colour story with the shades in the palette and is more like a Smolder than Heat. These are safe, warm tones for those was are board with the nude and neutral palette but I wish the tock out a lighter shade or added more saturation into the En Fuego (redder) and Ashes (more plum), to bring some heat into the palette. There are only 4 pop shades of metallics but again it's a matter if you love mattes or not that will make you want to buy this palette. But I have to say It's more in the vein of the Morphe 35O or the new Tarte Toasted palettes od the safe but slightly warm shades.
