Urban Decay Mariposa Palette

I bought this palette from TKMaxx a couple of weeks ago whilst in Guilford for my friends birthday.
I've always been a little hesitant to spend a lot of money on an eyeshadow palette (especially after I bought a fake UD Naked 2 from eBay, got my money back though!) but seeing as this only costs a pound or two more than my favourite L'Oreal mascara I decided to go for it.

My favourites are 'Gunmetal', 'Mushroom' and 'Spotlight'. Buying this palette has made me realise I do prefer neutral eyeshadow colours and that the Naked 2 palette would probably suit me best because of the cooler colours! 'Money' is also really flattering on my blue/greeny eyes. The pigmentation of these eye shadows is fantastic. The colours are very true to themselves and they literally last all day. I often use a primer on my eyelids as they can be quite oily but I don't feel the need to with these. They also haven't creased when I've worn them all day, a great trait! Everybody loves Urban Decay for their eye shadows and I now know why. I'm definitely going to invest in the Naked two palette!
