Urban Decay Mariposa Palette Looks

This is the last palette I got in the sale. It is the Urban Decay Mariposa Palette. Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish. Originally it costs $39, but I got it for only $19! Here's what it looks like:

It has the most beautiful eye shadows I own. Also, it comes with a little brush that is the perfect size for putting eyeshadow in the tearduct. I found only a few looks on Youtube using this palette. One of the people I subscribe to (and she subscribes to my blog), got this palette and asked her subbies what colors they wanted her to use in a look. I commented my choice, and I didn't think anything would come from it. But she did a look and said it was for me! I was so excited! So one of these looks was created just for me! It is by Gottalovemel105. So that was very sweet. I can't wait to try out the look.

These are the products I used for each look:
BB Cream: Physicians Formula Super BB Cream in light/medium
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent
Eye Primer: Milani Eye Shadow Primer
Mascara: Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof in Very Black (top lashes), Maybelline Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof in Very Black (bottom lashes)
Bronzer: MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in Medium Deep
Concealer: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Radiant
Face Primer: Pixi Flawless & Poreless Face Primer in Translucent
Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup SPF 10 in Shell
Lip Balm: EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry
Black Liquid Liner: Jordana In Color Fabuliner Liquid Eye Liner in Black
Black Eye Liner: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
Black Gel Liner: Essence Gel Liner in Midnight In Paris

q. MAC Tour De Fabulous: Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Bellini
My Thoughts: I don't normally wear grays on my eyes, so I wasn't sure about this look at first, but I think it does bring out my eyes and it looks good. I thought the cheeks were too dark, but I put powder over them, so be careful about that. The lips are my favorite peachy pink color. I don't know why she put liquid liner over gel liner. I skipped that step.

This is a great palette. It has a lot of dark colors. I think my favorite palette out of all the ones I got is the Urban Decay Deluxe Palette. I'm so happy to finally own Urban Decay shadows. I will probably use them to dupe future looks. If I do I will include a dupe of the Urban Decay shadow that is less expensive, if I know of one.
