In 2018 a NARS cult palette sold out in days. Now there's a mini version for half the price.

Every so often a cult eyeshadow palette will come along and a flurry of excitement is felt among beauty lovers the world over.

It starts with a few rave reviews from the beauty vlogger/blogger community and spreads into an Instagram-led obsession where every woman and her cat is scouring shelves for the exact same product.

In 2018, that product was the limited edition Nars NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette. The 12-colour palette can be credited with igniting our love of red, pink and rust-toned shades, like those seen at this year’s Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival and on the eyelids of influencers and celebrities all over your Instagram feed.

While it definitely wasn’t cheap at $86, the palette sold out within a week and a half of its release, with obsessed beauty fans demanding more stock from Nars.

Now, the makeup overlords at Nars and Mecca have done it again, releasing a mini version of the cult product. Dubbing it the Mini Wanted Eyeshadow Palette, the limited-edition compact includes the top six, best-selling shades from the original palette, with a reduced $38 price tag that’s under half the price of its former. That’s $6.33 a shadow.

This was the original Wanted Eyeshadow Palette…

nars wanted eyeshadow palette
All the warm-toned eyeshadow goodness a gal could want.

Like all of Nars' eyeshadows, they're buttery, super-pigmented and blend like a dream, with the palette offering a versatile mix of matte, satin and glittery textures in a range neutral and statement colours. You can do an everyday look by blending the pale or champagne shades all over the lid, or use the red-toned, 'Wicked Game' or 'Medora' shades for a pop of colour. Just add a touch of the matte brown 'Shadow Hill' colour to 'smoke' things up a bit if things get a bit too red for your liking.

Consult these flushed and blushed eyelids if you're in need of some inspiration...

As with all limited edition Nars products, they will sell out quick, so add one to your cart (virtual, or otherwise) sooner rather than later.

You know what to do.
