Urban Decay is a makeup brand, popular for their Naked series of eyeshadow palettes. Their products don’t really come in the “affordable” category. But like the saying goes, quality comes at a price!
Their products sure are expensive, but they are of high quality and you can make that out after knowing that they are used by many makeup artists as well as YouTube beauty gurus.
The brand recently took the beauty world by surprise when it launched an all-new palette called Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette.
This new Naked Heat palette is priced at $54 USD which, in my opinion, is not at all an affordable price point for most of us!
Hashtag -broke people problems-
So with a lot of efforts, I have made this list of best budget friendly dupes of Urban Decay naked heat eyeshadow palette. Check it out below!
9 Best Dupes Of Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette
1. NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette Warm Neutrals
This is a versatile palette by NYX. It can be used to create daily eye makeup looks as well as heavy, brown smokey eye makeup kind of looks that you can wear t your parties or night outs!
I have seen a lot of beauty YouTubers use this palette so many times and I honestly love its shade selection. It is quite similar to the UD heat palette, isn’t it? Reason why it holds #1 position on this list. ☺ The warm hues in this palette are really pretty!
You can easily buy it online or offline if you have NYX available in your country. It is available on Amazon.com for those of you in the USA and on Nykaa for my fellow Indian makeup junkies!
2. Makeup Revolution London Fortune Favours The Brave Eyeshadow Palette With BritishBeautyBlogger
The Fortune Favours The Brave palette mostly has metallic / foil eyeshadows, but a couple of its shades match with the heat palette. It has been a cult favourite eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution for a lot of makeup junkies -from the day it was launched!
In India, you can get it from Nykaa.
3. Makeup Revolution Newtrals vs Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette
I have mentioned this palette earlier in my Too Faced sweet peach palette dupe post. This affordable makeup revolution palette is a dupe for so many high end palettes, its shade selection is really worth the appreciation! If you are a beginner in eye makeup, you would love to have this palette!
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
I read a comment on Facebook where someone said that this new Urban Decay heat eyeshadow palette basically looks like a mixture of the ABH modern renaissance and Too faced sweet peach palette..
But technically, the ABH palette lacks metallic shades whereas, the heat palette has 4 of them and they are really pretty! I am still listing out the ABH palette over here because its shades are nice.
5. Morphe 25B
Morphe has a great collection of eyeshadow palettes, but their names can get a bit confusing. The 25B palette from Morphe contains 25 eyeshadows of bronze and mocha colours.
Morphe palettes are so cheap, you can buy 2-3 palettes from them instead of buying just one high end palette. And not to forget, you would be getting a doubledouble amount of shades too!
6. Juvia’s Place Nubian Eyeshadow Palette
I could not find the exact match of heat palette’s second last shade called “Ashes” on the Juvia’s Nubian Eyeshadow palette. This shade has surely given me a hard time on my quest to find close dupes of the heat palette. 😛
The rest of the shades in Nubian palette are a pretty close match, what are your thoughts about this particular UD heat palette dupe?

7. theBalm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette
The shade “Ashes” from the heat palette is similar to “Sexy” shade of this theBalm palette. Though I cannot say the same for other shades, but it is a nice palette nonetheless.
theBalm products are available all around the globe as far as I know. They were launched last year officially in India through Nykaa. If you live in India, You can easily order this palette with discounts on Nykaa. It can also be ordered from theBalm’s official website or through Amazon.com if you are based in the USA.
8. Stila Eyes Are The Window Eyeshadow Palettes – Mind and Soul
I feel that stila is one of the least known makeup brand which has some great nice products! Their eyeshadows are not as famous as their waterproof eyeliner pen. But anyway, Mind & Soul are two separate palettes from their “eyes are the window” collection. They both have shades that would match well with that of UD heat palette.
Choose mind palette if you want the dupes of matte shades from heat palette like Sauced, Cayenne, Ashes. And choose soul if you want the metallic ones.

9. Tarte Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte is neither a drugstore brand, nor a luxe makeup brand. Their prices are somewhere in between drugstore and luxe.
The toasted eyeshadow palette by tarte cosmetics and the heat palette by Urban Decay share a lot of similarities. I like the packaging of the tarte one way better! This is around $15 cheaper than UD heat, so the choice is up to you!
I am updating this post after more than a year of publishing it, with a couple of really AWESOME dupes that were launched during this period. Earlier, I had mentioned only 9 dupes of Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow palette. But in this period of one year, a lot of drugstore brands launched new palettes that resemble the heat palette very well (and they are cheaper than the ones I have mentioned above!)
10. Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Eyeshadow Palette Iconic Fever
What should I say about this palette?
When you look at its price tag, this palette just seems unbelievable! It has a total of 15 shades, with a mix of mattes and shimmers. This is by far the cheapest dupe of the Urban Decay naked heat palette. But wait, we have a few more of them below!
11. e.l.f. Cosmetics Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette Summer Breeze
With an awesome selection of 10 different shades, this e.l.f. palette is not a bad deal either! The only problem is, this palette does not have any shimmery shades (well, the palette’s name itself mentions “matte”). It would be ideal for you if you are in love with the UD heat shades and you want to get them in only matte finish.
12. ColourPop Yes, Please! Pressed Powder Shadow Palette
ColourPop just kills it with every launch of theirs!
The shades in this palette and their swatches have truly left me speechless! It has 12 shades that are almost the exact dupe of the ones in UD Heat. The shades are in matte, metallic and metallic duochrome finishes which is epic! This Yes Please palette is priced at around $16 USD and you can get it for yourself through ColourPop’s official website!
13. Rimmel Magnif’eyes Eyeshadow Palette – Spice
Quite surprisingly, I haven’t tried any makeup from Rimmel even though it has been a long time since it got launched in my country. But I am looking forward to try them out and well, this magnificent Magnif’eyes palette has managed to win my heart!
Rimmel is a British drugstore beauty brand and yet, their products are easily accessible globally. You can purchase this palette online on Amazon or get it from offline drugstores.
14. MUA Pro Eyeshadow Palette Fire Vixen
MUA (makeup academy)’s products may seem very similar to Makeup Revolution’s products, but they are two entirely different brands – that are surprisingly from the same price range!
This MUA Fire Vixen palette is priced exactly the same as the Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Iconic Fever palette I shared above. Which one would you pick out of these two?
15. Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Palette
Finally, the post has come to an end and I am ending it with a very obvious palette – the UD Naked Petite Heat!
Most of you might be knowing about this “petite” and affordable version of the UD heat palette that was launched some time back by the brand, but it could be a new information for some! This petite palette is very compact. It has total 6 shades that are all inspired by the main Heat palette. Here is the shades information from the brand’s website :
INHALE (cream demi-matte)
VIBRATE (soft nude matte)
HOT SPELL (terra-cotta matte)
WILD THING (scorched-orange matte)
HEIST (rich cayenne matte)
STRIKE (rich reddish-brown matte)
It is a bit expensive for just 6 shades. But if you really want to invest in a quality product, just go for it! You may get it in discounts during upcoming Halloween / autumn / Christmas sales so do keep a lookout for the discounts!
Bonus: Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette ColourPop / Other Brands Single Eyeshadow Dupes
It is easier to find dupes of an eyeshadow palette if you look for similar shades in single eyeshadow collections of brands like ColourPop or MAC. I believe that most of the people would get attracted towards the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette because of its 2nd last shade, “Ashes”.
That is just my assumption as Ashes is undeniably a gorgeous plum shade. But you would not want to spend $54 on the palette because you like one eyeshadow shade, right? So you may go for these single eyeshadow dupes of Ashes –
- ColourPop Pressed Powder Eyeshadow Cute Alert – $5 USD
- Morphe Single Eyeshadow E95 Private Agent – $2.29 USD
- Makeup Geek Cherry Cola – $6 USD
- MAC Deep Damson
There is this another beautiful shade in the heat palette which I absolutely loved.
The shade is called scorched and it is a really pretty rose gold shade. Here are two of the single eyeshadow dupes for scorched –
- ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Sequin
- Makeup Geek Roulette (less sparkly than Scorched)
These are all of the close dupes of Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette I could find so far. I will keep adding more options if I find any. Before I end this post, I want to clarify that since it is not humanly possible for me to check and compare each and every palette from this list to the UD palette, I cannot assure you that these are the exact same dupes.
So please, before you buy any of these palettes, check their swatches online or within Amazon itself because many customers post swatch pictures. And if you really like the shades of this palette, go ahead and buy the original one! It is a worthy investment if you are really into eye makeup!
