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

Swatches of the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted palette

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?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️
Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️
Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
