Urban Decay Mariposa Palette!

Hey lovelies, I’m so sorry for my lack of posts lately, all due to a long list of reasons but mostly pure laziness.....Sorry!!
Anyway, how was everyones Christmas?? Mine was so perfect and magical, the kids just loved it. I’m also a big kid myself, so I’d pretty much been counting down the days since September!!!

I got some lovely presents this year, check out my Christmas Haul Video here. One of my favourite gifts was from my brother and sister in law, they spoil me every year with luxury skincare or makeup and this year was no exception! 

In my beautifully package polka dot bag were two gorgeous Nails Inc polishes, a bare Minerals Lipgloss and mascara, then lastly I opened my favourite gift....An Urban Decay Mariposa Palette  . I’m a little embarrassed to say I had a little cry when I opened this, my brother in law, husband and mother in law were all a little confused by my reaction. With my husband asking ‘Are you actually crying over makeup??’ But I’m sure any makeup addict/junkie would understand my tears of joy for the work of art I’d just received!!!!

There are ten beautiful shades in this palette, 6 of them being new colours. The only colour I have used before is Gunmetal which is in the Naked Palette! So far I’ve used Skimp, Wreckage, Mushroom, Spotlight and Limelight. Each eyeshadow is super pigmented, with great colour payoff.

I can’t wait to have a play with the other colours, teal is my favourite colour, so I’m looking forward to experimenting with Haight and Money!
Thank you so much Stewart & Sally-Ann.....Love you!

RRP £28
