Urban Decay Mariposa Palette Review

Urban Decay Mariposa Palette

I do love a bargain and was very excited to see an Urban Decay palette pop up as a Groupon deal. It was half price at €18 and I think about 300 of them were sold of course and the deal sold out. What a bargain – did you get it? I now assume Urban Decay must be discontinuing it though because last time I checked it was half price on the US site. I thought I’d give it a road test anyway as a lot of the shadows are sold individually.

I do love Urban Decay eye shadows, they’re so strongly pigmented and they have such an amazing choice of colours. I own the original Naked Palette and a few of the single shadows and they never fail to impress.

The one thing that struck me about this palette is they’re not as highly pigmented as other Urban Decay palettes. The colours look strong but they go on more delicately, as you can see from the swatches below.

It is a nice palette to have for a spring/summer day look but I’m not sure it’s one I will reach for very regularly.

It’s no Naked palette people but if you spot it on sale I’d definitely snap it up!
