If you’ve used Urban Decay’s classic Naked palette to death then fear not, because the beauty brand has surprised fans by announcing the release of a mini version, Naked Petite Heat.
Days after Benefit Cosmetics unveiled their new mascara, Urban Decay delivered some exciting news of their own using Nicole Richie to front their campaign. Announcing the new release, Richie joked on Instagram: “Urban Decay named their new palette #PetiteHeat after me!! Well, they said they didn’t, but I’m no fool.”
In an unexpected Instagram post on 5 February, Urban Decay said of their gorgeous new creation: “Little palette, MAJOR. Get ready to create looks that are flat-out-fire with Naked Petite Heat. With 5 matte shades plus one demi-matte highlighting shade, you have everything you need to create endless sizzling eye looks. Check out our IG stories to see when Naked Petite Heat is coming to you!”
The travel-size palette includes the following eyeshadows: Hot Spell (a terracotta matte), Wild Thing (a scorched orange matte), Heist (a rich cayenne matte), Strike (a rich reddish brown matte), Vibrate (a soft nude matte) and Inhale (a cream demi-matte).

What’s even better about the campaign is that, in addition to Richie, a couple of beautiful women of colour have been used as models. Three women of varying skin tones are also used to swatch the palette in one of the campaign shots.
In 2016, Urban Decay launched the first Naked Heat palette which they prided on being suitable for most skin tones – and us women of colour know the struggle in finding pigmented eyeshadows that don’t slip off your face in an hour or two.
Urban Decay founder Wende Zomnir previously told Allure: “I’ve never been able to say this about a Naked palette, but this is the first Naked palette that satisfies both my need for neutrals and my craving for rich, sexy colour.”
“These peachy, burgundy, red-based shadows look good on everyone because they resonate with the warmth that people want to bring out in their skin.”
Get your purses at the ready because Naked Petite Heat is set for release on 22nd March priced at £26.
