Urban Decay Mariposa Palette

Hello Everyone!!

Today I want to talk about a product that beauty lovers truly will want to have.  Should have exactly!  It is the Mariposa Palette by Urban Decay.  This palette is a limited edition only available at Sephora.  It is a beautiful palette.  Kept in a sturdy compartment and the eyeshadows, ohhh the colors are so gorgeous and versatile.  You get colors with shimmers and sparkles which Urban Decay is famous for.These shadows comes in a color-coordinated quadrants (sets of four) that look amazing when worn together and can also be used as a starting point for creating your color combination. You can create look with this product from neutral, natural everyday looks to smoky looks as well as fun colorful looks.

Mariposa palette is also comes with the mini travel size brush so you don't have to worry when you forgot your brush.  You can use one that is available with the palette.  It is a great bonus.  I know I have times where I forgot to bring my makeup brush and I just use the brush inside the palette. The brush works really well in picking up the eyeshadow and feels soft to your eyes.

Here is a picture of the Mariposa Palette.

It comes in a tin container that is very sturdy with a gorgeous butterfly image and an embossed Urban Decay logo.  Unlike Naked Palette, which is a wonderful palette but it doesn't come in a tin container such as this.  This tin will protect the eyeshadow from breaking apart if it dropped accidentally. It also protects better from harsh weather.

Just look at these colors.  Aren't they gorgeous?
As I said, the colors of the eyeshadows are very versatile. One can create so many looks with Mariposa palette.
