When a lovely reader sent me the link to the NARS Fairy’s Kiss Eyeshadow Palette online, it would have been rude not to buy out the stock with ‘ONLY TWO LEFT’ flashing up on the screen, right? So buy out I did and a few days later two palettes dropped onto my doorstep. Part of the Autumn 13 NARS collection and an almost instant sell-out, the Fairy’s Kiss offering is the cooler of the two released, packed with a purpley bunch of shades: (L-R, top to bottom) Manosque, Kalahari, Brousse, Tokyo, Brumes and Pandora to be exact. So I thought I’d cobble together an everyday hint of violet look with it, to prove that it doesn’t always have to be neutral. Oh and that extra one? Well that’s for one of you. Check out the video linked above for that.

Now this is a much cooler palette than the bronzey offerings I usually head towards, but I’ve come to the conclusion that a muted purple eye looks good on everyone. I’m not talking the high-glitter ‘to the brow’ looks I sported as a teenager, but a light lilac with a deeper violet in the crease, lashings of mascara and you’re done; so this palette was exactly what I’d been perusing for. It’s the same size as their previous And God Created the Woman palette (the fact my A.G.C.T.W palette has a same-size buddy makes me very excited) and the 1g pans don’t make it amazing value for money (£32 FYI), but it’s all about the edit, the selection. The colour pay-off is good on four of the six shadows, the darker two are a tad powdery. Though still being a slight shadow-phobe I’m ok with the lack of pigmentation in those.

Being that the palette is a little hard to stumble upon I’ve cobbled together some dupes. Manosque is a limited edition shade and not currently in the NARS full-time eyeshadow line-up (though the shade name has existed as a black nail polish before, just to confuse matters) and reminds me of a less shimmery Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Rosewood. Kalahari is available as a duo as is Tokyo and Brousse has a touch of MAC Satellite Dreams about it. Brumes is basically MAC Smut and Pandora, MAC Carbon.

But there’s still one on the market and it’s currently under lock and key in my posession. Just have a watch of the video above to see the deats of how to enter. It’s an easy one, I promise. Good luck.

    I’ve got the AGCTW palette as well and I really like the size, so handy for travel! The Fairy’s Kiss palette is gorgeous, but I’m pretty sure I have a tonne of dupes for the shades so maybe I’ll pass.

    Purple eyeshadows can be quite tricky and I always manage to achieve make up gone wrong with this colour, but it looks very pretty on you! Like!

  • Laura Regan

    The palette looks really classy, I’d be afraid to get it dirty!

  • lizzy shaw

    That is gorgeous! I would love to use the darker shades wet on an eyeliner brush to create definition and I’ve heard so much about how beautiful kalahari is! Ooh! I love your blog Anna, I read it every day as one of my highlights!

  • Claire O

    Wonderful colours, moving into the winter months this palette would make my days and evenings magical xxxxx

  • Amy

    I’m gutted that Manosque isn’t permanent, it’s my favourite shadow from the palette. I think Fairy’s Kiss is currently at the top of my “favourite palettes” list.

  • Diane J

    I tend to shy away from purple eyeshadows but this look and palette makes me want to try it out for myself. For we all know that beauty is all about trying something new right? ;)

  • Evelyn Morales

    Looks really nice on you the purple eyeshadow, I think you are right purple looks good on most people just have to get the shade right.

    Such beautiful colours, NARS eyeshadows are, in my opinion, the best out there. I have blue eyes, so the bronze palette in this collection might be better for me!

    It is so pretty! Seems like a lot of companies have been going with the purple trend (eg. LM Artist Palette) which is awesome for those with brown eyes (and anyone else since purple seems to be flattering on everyone).
