Urban Decay Petite Heat Palette ($29) is a new all matte eyeshadow palette inspired by the original Urban Decay Heat Eyeshadow Palette that launched last Summer. I consider Petite Heat a companion piece to the original palette since I thought it would contain a good deal of transitional shades that the original lacked.
I think most of a agree that the main issue with the Heat Eyeshadow Palette was the fact that many of the colors were gorgeous but also difficult to use together since they didn’t provide much contrast and they ran all together. I consider Petite Heat quite a nice source of shades that will compliment ones in that palette however, there’s not a lot of newness here and some of the prime real estate in the palette is taken over by two lighter highlighting shades.
Let’s take a closer look at my review and swatches below.
