“I Am THE Makeup Junkie” ‘s Marie Goes Urban for Holiday: Urban Decay’s Mariposa Holiday Palette!

Urban Decay is no stranger to beauty junkies. I remember when I first met Wende Zomnir in the late 90’s in the UD office in Orange County. Still based there, the company has managed to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to beauty products, colors, presentations and ways of creating cutting edge new collections.

I Am THE Makeup Junkie


Marie, “I Am THE Makeup Junkie”

As you know I am a HUGE Urban Decay fan. So when I saw that they were putting out another palette for the holiday season, I jumped at the chance to order it as soon as it became available on the Sephora website. The Mariposa (butterfly in Spanish) palette is a Sephora exclusive and runs $39.00. It has 10 shadows in it and it comes in a small metal tin that is quite difficult for me to open. That may just be because I have some nerve issues. I am not sure how many of them are new or not, but I have not seen a few of them before (that may just be because I missed them in previous palettes).

The shadows are:
Rockstar (shimmery dark purple),
Gunmetal (shimmery dark silver),
Skimp (light shimmery peachy nude),
Infamous (shimmery fuchsia),
Wreckage (shimmery taupe bronze),
Haight (shimmery teal),
Money (light shimmery bluish silver),
Mushroom (medium shimmery taupe silver),
Spotlight (shimmery golden taupe) and
Limelight (medium gold).
It also comes with a small synthetic brush. I immediately took it out to use for lipstick. The brush was small and seemed to be usable for that.

For this look I am wearing Infamous in my crease. Then I took Rockstar and used it to defined the crease more. On the outer edge of the lid I used Rockstar and then under the eye to define it. I used Spotlight on the lid and Skimp under the brow. I used Sephora’s liquid liner in #14 Fancy Violet. Mascara was MAC’s Opulash Optimum in Black. My blush is Clinique’s Shimmering Tones Powder in Black Honey. On the lips I used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Hush over Sephora’s Nano lip liner in #07 Cheery Chestnut.
