I love fairylite!! I do agree with some of the other reviews that using it foiled or with FIx it makes it really come alive. To me its a really shimmery, iridescent pink, eggshell color. I use it as a wash with many different eyeshadow looks and it gives a really ethereal look. The name fairylite is quite fitting because there's an almost mystical quality about this shade. It is definently one of my favs and I would repurchase! <3

When I first got this pigment I was so disappointed. It didn't show up and it just left minimal amounts of shimmery glitter on my lids. I read to try this with Fix+ and whoa! It totally changes the color! It's so pretty! I can't quite describe the color but it's a pinky color and is awesome! Before throwing this out, try it with Fix+ first! Love!

Well this is an ok product, to be honest nothing that special. It's a light pinkish nude with a bit of sparkle to it, not a strong sparkle at all. The only use for this I would say would be to highlight the cheekbones. If you feel it is too light for you and the pink doesn't show up enough you may want to mix it with pink opal by mac or you might just want to buy pink opal by itself.

Used to use this only as a highlight, until I discovered the joys of MAC's Fix+ with pigments-oh my god, it became the pigment I always hoped it could be! It goes on very light peachy-pink & the glitter shows up majorly. It's one of my new faves.

i really like this pigment. i got it from a cco so it was a steal. i am very fair with cool undertones and i really like the way this color shows up on my skin. it shows as a light pretty pink. i like to use it as a highlight, all over lid color with swish in the crease, or even as a cheek highlight.
i would highly recommend this color. and if you can get it at a cco - you really can't beat that!

Fairylite is a light neutral shimmery color. it's very pretty. on my tan skin, it does show up lightly & the shimmers are very soft & made my eyes look angelic. very blendable & finely milled. i would suggest this to people with fair to med. skintone. this will be a really nice highlighter.

Fairylite is in my opinion a really flattering color for my face, it is on the very light and pinkish side of beige which I find really lovely.
I am not too fond of such glittery and frosty eyeshadows in general but what actually bothers me that this pigment is, well, not really pigmented.. It is shimmery and very glittery but goes on really sheer.
It is buildable to some extend though and I take it mainly as an all over wash with a darker crease color and although it's sheer it's really nice and brightens up my eyes a lot.
So except for the frosty finish I am surprised and in love with the result on my eye!
The reason I am not in love with the pigment overall is.. I don't think it is something you have to pay 23€ for and you can find comparable and better pigmented shadows for less.. if you'd like the color to be sheer you can just apply less, if you have to use a lot and build it it's harder.. nevertheless I find the eventual look on my eyes very flattering. When I run out of it I'll definitely try to find a more reasonably priced dupe for it, but should I be unlucky I will purchase it again!

hmm so i ordered loads of pigments the other day and fairlite was 1 of them. I thought this colour was kinda blah! really disapointed as i thought "WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!" however i really wanted 2 make it work so i applied BARRY M shimmering eye and lip crayon underneath it and it really made the colour pop.
also using it wet made a difference

I love this pigment! It is definitely a "my lids but better" colour for the ones in the fair/light spectrum, as it does not provide any dramatic effect but just evens out the colour of your lids and adds a little bit of shimmer. Perfect to compliment a " natural look" and ideal for occasions like a date in daytime when you want to look pretty but not made up. Applies evenly and stays put for the whole day ( I used UDPP).

This is pretty much glitter/shimmer with no color. It's very pretty but I can't see myself using it, but that's a preference thing so I didn't take off for it. If you want a sparkle to your skin this would be cute.

The color is like a base color for lids... but there is very finely milled glitter in there. I'd call it a cream color with something extra.

Fairylite is one of those MAC pigments that I really wanted to love but just can't. While in the jar, it looks like a peach-ish color with shimmer, all that shows up on my NW20 skin is the shimmer with no pigment to be seen. It's not that Fairylite isn't pretty, because the shimmer is ethereal and lovely. It's just a bit of a letdown because that's all there is to it. You'd think a pigment would be, well, pigmented.
I originally thought that it might be that it was just too similar to my skintone to show up, but it looks like most everyone else has similar problems with Fairylite. Luckily, I received this in a swap, otherwise I'd be disappointed.
If you're going for a fairy princess sort of look (or just like shimmer on your cheeks), Fairylite could look good dusted lightly across your cheeks. Unfortunately, it's not lip safe, otherwise it might look nice mixed into a lipgloss. Techically, it's also not eye safe, but I've used it as a brow bone highlighter many times with no issues.

Fairylite to me leans more to the pinkish side. I really don't see a comparison to Naked or Provence pigments with this one. It seems to be aptly named, as it reminds me of what you'd see flowing behind a fairy flying through the air (think Tinkerbell). It has a beautiful glow and the sparkles in it are just right. Thus far I've only used Fairylite as a browbone highlighter, but I'm going to venture out and try it full on the lid.

Didn't show up on my skin (NC20) at all - only the shimmer/"glitter" appears.

I really adore this color. Its fairly similar to my dear vanilla pigment, which I love for its many useful qualities. Its beautiful to mix in with some moisturizer for a dewy glow, a wonderful highlight, and a nice light color that I find works well for me when I can't wear much color (like at work). Its a pretty whitish color, that goes on looking less white and blends into the skin nicely, leaving a bit of shimmer with a slightly opalescent color. This was one I didn't know if I would like, but after swapping for a sample, i think this one is another that I will have to invest in a full-sized jar. I just really wish that the jars came with sifters and that they came in multiple sizes, like a small a large version, so we didn't have to go through all this sample purchasing process.

Skin Type: Normal to dry, tans easily, rarely breaks out. Skintone: LLL (olive skin tone) Haircolor: Changes frequently Right now, medium mocha brown with copper and latte highlights. Eye Color: Espresso brown.
Fairylite is a fleshtoned pink with pearl shimmer. The texture is a bit dryer and more powdery compared to other pigments. It does go on smoothly almost like a face powder and, in fact can be mixed with face powder for a highlighting effect.
On my LLL olive skintone, this shows up with no problem. But, I am assuming if you are a FFF and cool toned, this will probably disappear into the skin.
As I compare this to Naked, this one is definitely cooler while naked is more on the peach/beige side; compared to Provence, this is similar in texture but the opposite. Provence is a gold beige. The closest that comes to Fairylite that I have is Fyrinnae’s Moonchild and/or Crimson Ghost. Moonchild has the whiteness and softness of Fairylite but lacks the pink. Crimson Ghost has the pink but packs a punch compared to Fairylite. I would say if Moonchild and Crimson Ghost had a child it would be Fairylite!

I'm really quite fond of this pigment. I rarely do dark/dramatic looks and prefer neutrals, and this looks great all over the lid and up to the browbone with just a brown in the crease. It's a common skin-toned shade when used dry, but if you use it wet you get a lovely pink undertone that really brightens up the eyes. A very easy pigment to wear everyday. I have a full jar and definitely won't be needing anymore! Definitely worth trying out; it looks like it would work well for cheeks as a highlight too.

This pigment should have been named "Fairly Lite" instead of "Fairy Lite." This pigment doesn't show up at all on my lids, for some reason. It doesn't add any glitter or shimmer, either. Strange, for a pigment...I only bought a 1/4 tsp sample of this from ebay, and I'm glad I didn't invest in a full jar. I can't see myself using this one, much. This is like an invisible pigment- LOL! I find Naked, Provence, and Shimmertime to do more for my eyelids than Fairy Lite. I guess this one must have purpose, otherwise, MAC wouldn't have invented it. (I just don't have any purpose for it.)
EDIT 8/17/08: I think I finally found a purpose for this one. I use this as a wash over medium-colored Paints and Paint Pots (ie. Magrittes, Cash Flow.), and it makes them look smooth and shimmery. Makes for a nice, neutral, day-look. Might repurchase if I ever use my sample up...

I adore MAC pigments, this was my first. I buy the 1/4 & 1/2 tsp samples off ebay for a cheaper price than buying the full size (on Ebay or in stores). I absolutely love this color - it's a pinkish white with little mini glitters in it - great as a highlighter on the inner eye and brow bone. The 1/4 sample I have is standing up well as I don't use the color everyday. I'd recommend trying a sampler on Ebay before committing to the full size.

Some give this pigment bad reviews because it is so light, but that's what I actually love about this shade. It's pale enough to give just a hint of color with shimmer accross the brow bones without too much drama. I use this over a pair of darker shadows at the lid and crease, and this really adds just enough highlight to balance the look. It also looks great over liner with no other colors. The texture is a bit different from most pigments, but I find that it sticks to the brush well and blends easily to keep things tidy. I will continue to use this and would likely buy more.
