Naked Heat vs Tartelette Toasted | Palette Review

naked heat vs tartelette toasted review

Two palettes I had my eyes on were the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted palette and the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. Both palettes are filled with beautiful warm-toned shadows, and that’s the kind of look I like. The first released palette was the Urban Decay Naked Heat. I found the shades to be beautiful and it received amazing reviews. For some reason, when the Tartelette Toasted palette was released I fell in love. I stopped thinking about the Naked Heat and I picked up Toasted during Sephora’s VIB Fall sale. As I am sure I wasn’t the only one struggling between these two, I thought I’d share the best, the worst, and the winner between these two.

The Formula

I found both palettes to be very similar. I was very impressed with the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. As an owner of two other Naked palettes that had disappointed me before, these shadows felt so creamy and pigmented. As is the case with other Naked palettes, there isn’t a lot of kick up with the Naked Heat. On the other hand, the Tartelette Toasted has a lot of kick up when you dip your brush in.

When it comes to formula, the prize goes to the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. They look beautiful on the eyes, they blend so easily, and they’re just such great quality. Not that the Toasted is not, but the Naked Heat just has an inch over the Toasted.

The Shade Range

While at first glance both palettes seem very similar, the shades are actually very different. The Naked Heat has a lot more red tones, while the Tartelette Toasted has more copper tones. In terms of neutral, basic, everyday shades, the Tartelette Toasted has more of these with six shades (the first two columns of the palette). On the other hand, the Naked Heat has four shades (the first four shades), and the rest of the shades are a lot deeper.

In this category, I prefer the Tarte palette, mainly because I find it really easy to create a variety of looks. The last time I went to Colombia, I only traveled with this palette, and it was so easy to switch things up. I do love the shades in the Urban Decay palette, but they are a lot bolder.

The Packaging

This category is easy. Tarte Toasted all the way. I love the simple, square-ish packaging. It is so easy to travel with and the mirror is amazing. The Naked palettes are all long and while they do come with a mirror, it is a lot shorter.

Neither of the palettes feels cheap. They both have sturdy packaging, but I prefer the Tarte packaging over the Urban Decay.

Final Thoughts

I love both palettes. They are actually a lot more different than I thought they were in terms of shades. Like I said before, the Toasted palette has more copper/gold shades, while the Naked palette has more red-tone shades. I wish I could have a final answer for which one you should get, but I think it all depends on the shades that call you the most. I find both to be beautiful so I am happy having them both. Just know that in terms of quality, the palettes are extremely similar.

Are you a Toasted or a Heat kind of person?

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼
Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!

  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.

Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
