Urban Decay Mariposa Eyeshadow Palette

The exterior of the palette is nice; it’s a good size, too–small enough to travel with but large enough to be easy to use with regular, full-sized brushes. There is no mirror in this palette, which is unusual for Urban Decay’s palettes. It’s not as slim as their six-pan palettes (like Dangerous, Feminine, etc.), but it is significantly smaller than the Book of Shadows volumes. It stays shut quite well, as the lid is kept on by hinges. The brushed metal finish of the tin hides fingerprints well. I don’t love the interior; it’s cardboard that shifts around a bit when you’ve plunk a brush into one of the eyeshadow wells. It just feels a little… cheap to me, and I generally don’t have issues with cardboard-based packaging so long as it feels sturdy.

Urban Decay Holiday 2011 Nail Kit

Urban Decay Holiday 2011 Nail Kit ($28.00 for 6 x 0.17 fl oz.) is a set that features six miniature-sized bottles of polish with colors designed with the season in mind. Urban Decay’s formula is free from toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP. The applicator brush is still full-sized, even if the rest of the packaging is not. The six shades included are: Mars (emerald green with green and silver micro-glitter), Gunmetal (shimmery dark grey), Hot Mess (bright fuchsia with fuchsia micro-glitter), Ziggy (gold and multi-colored glitter), Wrecked (deep red wine), and Barlust (whiskey brown with brown shimmer).  It is a limited edition set that will only be available at select Macy’s in-store and online at urbandecay.com around October.

Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Eye Pencils Set

I’m a long-time fan of the 24/7 Eye Pencils, because they have just enough creaminess for easy gliding across the lash line but not so much that it results in smudging or running. It has a large color range, and they last quite awhile. When I’m doing a look, I often reach for this formula, because it wears all day for me.

Urban Decay Holiday 2011 Swatches – Midnight Emergency, Nail Kit, Stardust Lipgloss (Sneak Peek)

Full review, photos, and swatches coming soon — please hold all questions until then. Thank you in advance for your patience!

Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lipgloss ($19.00) will be available in-stores at ULTA and select Macy’s as well as online at ulta.com, macys.com, beauty.com, and urbandecay.com (no Sephora). I do not believe these are limited edition. This gloss is supposed to be multi-faceted with microscopic, ultra-reflective sparkle for a luminous effect on lips without the glitter grit. It includes vitamin E and jojoba oil. The texture is supposed to be buttery, non-sticky, and have a transparent but scintillating texture with a cushiony formula to give lips a fuller look without the bee-stung feeling. There will be three shades available.

Urban Decay Holiday Nail Kit ($28.00) will only be available at select Macy’s in-store and online at urbandecay.com. It is limited edition and contains six miniature-sized nail polishes.

Midnight Emergency Kit ($39.00) is a limited edition kit that features four eyeshadows, one Lip Junkie Lipgloss, and a small eyeshadow brush. It will be available at ULTA and select Macy’s in-stores as well as online at ulta.com and urbandecay.com.

I do not have specific launch dates at this time but imagine these products should arrive at retailers around October.
