For background, I have all of the Naked palettes, and I saw mixed reviews about this palette before purchasing it.
In light of all that, I have to say this is my favorite and in my opinion the BEST Naked palette. The shades are so well curated; they go together so well, the looks you can make are so seamless. For example in Naked 3 I found the darker shades to not be pink enough to the point they didn't go with the lighter shades, and the gold shade was way too hard to work with. In Naked Smoky the matte shades left something to be desired. The original Naked had too many shimmery shades. And so on.
In Naked Heat, UD appears to have taken all those common criticisms to heart in this butterscotch/amber/red tones themed palette.
At this point I've tried all the shades and they all play well with me (be advised I apply shimmery shades with my finger, I've never even tried them with a brush because that's not how I do my makeup ever). I have very light skin with golden undertones and the shades just melt in. I've used it every day since purchasing it. I am in love.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The rollerball itself needs work but the fragrance is amazing

From a perfumehead standpoint this is a very good fragrance. I'm definitely going to be wearing it all summer--the lavender, bergamot, sea salt, and lemon notes are so nice in warm weather. On me it dries down to musk, lavender, and lemon.
My only criticism would be the rollerball itself. Not very much product comes out so I really have to roll it around over and over and over to get enough oil on my skin. While that is better than too much oil coming out at once, I feel like UD could tweek that a bit. I don't mean that in the sense that it takes a lot of oil to get the sillage you want, I really just mean not a lot of oil comes out. I think the oil itself has a good concentration of fragrance. A little will go a long way... it's just a matter of getting it out of the packaging. Haha
Overall for just $24(!) this is a no-brainer for me. Really great quality, beautiful packaging too.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought all three shades and I'm pleasantly surprised to say all three shades work for me!--I was afraid one or more of them would be too cool-toned but happily that wasn't the case! I think Abstract is neutral toned, whereas Epigram is neutral to warm, and Exhibition is neutral to cool.
These perform equally as well as the other Vice lipsticks do, so nothing aberrant to report. All are super highly pigmented and the Comfort Matte shade Exhibition is not drying on me at all (UD's Comfort Matte formula is one of the only matte formulas I can tolerate; dry skin here).
I saw other folks online saying their tubes are really hard to open. Mine do take some extra force to open but mine seem to not be as tough as others. It's not an issue for me.
That packaging. Love it. Canvas texture, the artwork on it, love it all. No complaints here. Love these shades!
Pros Highly Pigmented, Creamy, beautiful packaging
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm so pleased with this product. First of all, the packaging... look at it, it's incredible. The attention to detail, the texture, the hanger on the back, the weight--it's perfect. I feel like the palette could be thinner, but let's face it, Urban Decay palettes are usually bulky, and this one is not excessively thick for UD. I applaud UD's progress in that area. It is a cardboard palette, which I like, but not everyone likes cardboard palettes so it's something to consider.
As for the shades, these perform equally well as the individual Afterglow blushes and highlighters (I haven't tried UD's Beached bronzer so I can't speak to that formula separately though). I'll start with the highlighter Now's The Time. It blends out very nicely, again as well as the standalone permanent highlighters. It's most similar to Sin, but NTT is more bronzy and darker.
The bronzer Jawbone and the blushes Noho and X-Rated kick up some extra product in the pan, so they are a touch powdery/less hard-packed than I'd like, but that powder doesn't translate onto the skin at all. But combined with the fact that these are SO pigmented you need to watch out for that powder so you don't accidentally apply too much product to your face. These are so pigmented I'm almost wary to use them. But with a light touch they apply like a dream and the formula lasts a good 8 hours before noticeably fading or moving around (dry skin here).
Overall very happy with my purchase!
Pros Highly Pigmented, Blendable, long-lasting, beautiful packaging
Cons kicks up powder in the pan, maybe too pigmented?
Yes, I recommend this product.

On the lid these are opaque in one swipe. They go on like nothing and don't skip or tug. The colors are really bright too. I'm impressed with how well these stayed in my waterline too. Vivid and Anatomy were opaque on the waterline in about one coat, whereas Post Punk took 3 coats to build up to opacity. Once there though, they lasted a minimum of 6 hours (Post Punk) to 8 hours (Vivid and Anatomy), which is great for me because my eyes are watery and these aren't necessarily intended for the waterline (UD makes liners specifically marketed for the waterline so that's where I get that inference from). I'm very happy with these!
Pros bright, long-lasting, Creamy, Highly Pigmented
Yes, I recommend this product.

I typically get about 4-5 days wear with no chipping with a normal to good formula nail polish. With these, I get large chips within 48 hours, especially with Woodstock. A few times, not only did Woodstock chip, but *all* the color came off in one piece! That might be nice if I were trying to remove it, but I wasn't, I was just hanging out at home.
Gold Mine is more durable, it's just with Woodstock and Deep End that I've had major chipping problems.
The full-size bottles (Addiction, Vice, Chaos, Bang) are a much better formula, I have not had chipping problems within the first 5 days with those.
No, I do not recommend this product.

The only bad thing about this product is that it is a little bit on the small side; I need to use a larger water bottle when I work out since this doesn't hold enough for 30 minutes on a cardio machine. However if it was any bigger it would be too heavy. Also the opening could be a little bit bigger to make filling if from a faucet a little easier. That being said, it's a great size for everyday/all day use, such as at your desk and to carry in your purse when you go out. I love that it has a strong handle on the top of the cover. I would purchase this again; recommended to anyone
Pros easy to clean, glass, looks awesome
Cons heavy, small
Yes, I recommend this product.

This journal has more pages in it than I expected, making its 'height' when sitting on a table about 1cm. So there's plenty of pages to write things down.
The binding is good quality; it feels like a paperback novel, not a flimsy journal. There is also a flat pocket inside the back cover. I find those helpful in folders and notebooks so I think it's a nice addition. The artwork scattered throughout ('from designs from the past 10 years' according to the description) is from past palettes and deluxe eyeshadow cases, for the most part. Some examples would be the cover designs of the Book of Shadows Volumes 3 and 4, the cover of the Vegan Palette, the cover of the Show Pony palette, etc. The quotes on the inside pages are generically inspiring; cute though. The eyeshadows pictured on the cover appear to be the ones from the 15th anniversary palette, probably my favorite palette they've made, so I really like that. I wish they'd gone back even farther in UD history and perhaps included promotional photos or makeup looks - oh well!
I also really like that the front and back covers are made from paper of a significantly higher weight and thickness than the pages you write on, so it feels like a real book. Overall really great quality.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bag is exactly what I hoped it would be. Actually it is larger than I expected so I suppose it exceeded my expectations. When the description said you could use it as a gym bag I was skeptical, but now that I have the bag in my hands I don't think that would be a difficult task at all. It would definitely fit a gym towel and a change of clothes (though maybe not also a hair dryer or a pair of shoes, depending on the size of those items of course). I think it would also work as an overnight bag, depending on where you're going (jammies and a toothbrush, definitely). This bag definitely toes the line of oversized and I think comes out on the "suitable for everyday use" end of the spectrum.
The one detail it seems they did not think of was a small interior pocket for tampons and whatnot. I appreciate an inner pocket because I keep extra meds and a travel phone charger in there too. Unfortunately this bag is just a pit with no options for further organization. Fortunately it is large enough that you can root around without getting too frustrated.
The only other bad thing I have to say about this bag is that the inner lining (which is a fabulous lime green, I might add) isn't really sewn down at the bottom, so there is a lot of give and movement to it. I wish it were a bit more secure as I am concerned of my keys damaging it. It seems very thin (but it's oh so silky!)
I would add that one design detail I really like it that the zipper pulls are thick and have "UD" imprinted in them - just like the zippers on the 15th anniversary quinceañera makeup bags from a couple years ago, except this time they are gunmetal pewter colored. So badass.
Love it, 10/10 would recommend.
Pros cool design details, nice material, beautiful!
Cons no interior pocket
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm disappointed with this shirt, plain and simple.
First, with the good: the color is a really nice light lavender; the photo is true to the actual color of the shirt. The material is super soft and light. The shape of shirt falls well.
Now with the cons. First of all, the cut made in the shirt are ridiculous, like someone just went at it with scissors (which is what I'm pretty sure happened). As someone who loves hardcore punk and was into the music scene for many years, there are ways to cut a shirt so it looks good/edgy/whatever, and there are ways to cut a shirt so it looks.. like you cut up a perfectly good shirt. This shirt falls into the latter category, I am heartbroken to say. I was expecting it to be hand-cut, but honestly the cuts that were made are careless. Mine actually has little, I-don't-know-how-you-say, "hesitation marks" - as if the shirt was not flat while it was being cut. The holes in the top of the sleeves are gigantic and unflattering. On the model the cuts in the sleeves look like either simple slits or diamond shapes; in reality, they are gaping ovals. The "straps" of the shirt created by the ovals are not even, although not glaringly so - they are about 1cm off. I really wish the shirt was left intact; I would have preferred it that way.
The design on the shirt isn't really true to the photo. The colors are darker (it's not a "vintage look" as the photo sort of suggests) and the "metallic ink" the description mentions is kind of an afterthought. The print looks and feels like the heavy print applied to a t-shirt for a sports team - it's kind of thick (sorry I don't know how else to describe that). The print looks like eye shadow in only your most liberal definition. The innocent bystander who sees your shirt will not know it's supposed to be eye shadow unless you tell them.
I haven't made up my mind whether I'm going to keep this shirt or send it back. I want to see if the appearance improves after washing it; if it does, I will update this review. It may be one of those cases were it looks better after many many washes. I'm disappointed but optimistic, I suppose.
Pros light fabric, nice color, soft
Cons cuts are sloppy, print design is 'thick', cuts are not symmetrical
No, I do not recommend this product.
