Urban Decay Mariposa Palette

You guys know how much we adore eyeshadow palettes from Urban Decay.  We got so excited over the Naked palette and the 15th Anniversary palette that we literally lost sleep!  Nope, we have never claimed to be "sane".  :-)

We recently discovered the Mariposa eyeshadow palette that is a limited edition new release and only available at Sephora. Now you might be wondering why we think this is a fab palette being that some of the colors are similar to shadows we have in the Naked and the 15th Anniversary palettes.  But for us it's the combo of the slimline size (4.5 x 4.5 and 1/2 inch deep) and the wide range of shades.  This palette is so easy to pack when you're traveling and contains both neutrals and bright colors, so that you can play without having to pack the the larger palettes or multiple ones.

Jayme recently purchased this palette for her trip to Vegas because she didn't want to take a ton of products, but didn't want to limit her shadow options.  This palette worked perfectly to suit all of her eye makeup needs.  It makes it so easy to go from casual to a fun night out.

Mariposa contains:
10 x .03 Shadows
Shadows are: Rockstar (deep purple), Gunmetal (gunmetal gray with silver glitter- also found in the Naked), Skimp (ivory peach sheen), Infamous (magenta sheen), Wreckage (taupe shimmer), Haight (dark teal with shimmer), Money (pale silvery green shimmer), Mushroom (steel gray shimmer), Spotlight (golden tan shimmer) and Limelight (gold shimmer)

Plus a travel size eyeshadow brush that is the same great quality as the brush that came with the Naked Palette

TRAVEL APPROVED!  And the best part is that this palette retails for $39.00, so it can be an affordable option if you don't want to splurge on the Naked palette ($48.00) or the 15th Anniversary palette ($55.00).

Let us know what you guys think!  Will you add Mariposa to your collection?  Do you have any upcoming trips planned?  We'd love to hear from you.
