Urban Decay Mariposa Palette: Pictures and Swatches

The Mariposa Palette is another item I picked up during Urban Decay's Friends and Family Sale. This item is still on sale on Urban Decay's website for $19 US.

The shadows come in a compact matte tin with a butterfly embossed on the lid. I like it, it's super slick, the only problem is that it is incredibly difficult to open! The lid shuts really tightly and it is very hard to get a grip on the tin.
The palette also comes with a synthetic flat shader brush. I am not too fond of Urban Decay brushes because I find that the synthetic bristles don't pick up shadows very well and leads to a lot of fall-out.

I have swatched all the colors on bare skin. All of the shadows are super pigmented and creamy.
