I want to give a HUGE thanks to my wonderful reader Bubblex23, who emailed me a picture that literally made me gasp! She told me that the darkest shade in the Wet n Wild LE Pixie Palette, Sugar Plum Fairy, is "an exact dupe" for NARS Mekong. And as if that weren't enough, she included side-by-side swatches to prove her point!

I want to once again give full credit to the amazing JenJen for the image of the Sugar Plum Fairy palette. Way back in September, JenJen was one of the very first people to find and swatch these fantastic little palettes. Since September, I don't know how many times I've gone back and referred to her incredibly informative post, so please click here if you haven't seen it already. Thanks again, JenJen!
Looking at the photos above, it's hard to tell that this is a dupe, but when you see Bubblex23's photo, there is NO doubt:

Um, WOW! Between the MAC Club dupe in the Night Elf palette, and the countless other MAC dupes people have been spotting in these Pixie Holiday palettes, I already thought these little gems were worth their weight in gold. But now a NARS dupe too? So fantastic! I think there's no doubt these palettes are the drugstore must-have of the season, if not the entire year. For just $4.99 each, they're a total no-brainer.
Another HUGE thanks to Bubblex23 for the fantastic dupe alert (with a wonderful image), and to JenJen for the great post!
Do you already own any Wet n Wild Pixie Holiday palettes? If so, which ones have your purchased and where did you find them? So far the only drugstore that, I believe, has yet to put these out is Rite Aid. Hopefully they'll land there soon!
