Urban Decay Mariposa Palette (Review, Swatches, Looks)

Urban Decay Mariposa

Urban Decay’s Mariposa palette is a nice mix of complimentary and contrasting shades to provide a variety of looks.

Where to Buy:  Urban Decay
Price:  $15 (originally $39)
Quantity:  0.03oz per eyeshadow

These shadows are beautiful, densely pigmented and relatively easy to apply (though they do have some fallout).  The palette comes in a butterfly-imprinted tin and contains ten eyeshadows and one mini-sized brush.  The colours:

Rockstar: deep warm purple
Gunmetal: 
medium blue gray
Skimp: 
light beige peach
Infamous: 
bright fuchsia pink
Wreckage: 
warm medium brown
Haight: 
vibrant medium teal blue
Money: 
light silver green
Mushroom: 
medium purple taupe
Spotlight: 
medium champagne beige
Limelight:
  medium warm honey

It would be nice if there were a matte shade to ground the palette – using only the shades provided it can look a little Electric Circus.
