NARS Firenze Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a sparkling, medium pink with strong, warm undertones. It had medium coverage applied with a dry brush, which had slight fallout when I applied it in patting/pressing motions to my lid. It had opaque color payoff when I used it with a dampened brush, and there was much less fallout during application. The eyeshadow had a soft, drier consistency that was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was some powderiness in the pan as a result. It stayed on well for eight hours both wet and dry but had some fallout over time with a dry application.

The formula "can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity." It is a very glittery formula, and naturally, it performed significantly better when used with a dampened brush or an adhesive base. Applied dry, they were typically sheer to semi-sheer with light to moderate fallout when blended out on my lid. They lasted between five and seven hours with light to moderate fallout. Applied wet, they were typically semi-opaque to opaque with minimal fallout when blended out and minimal to slight fallout during wear (about eight hours). The consistency was soft, slightly drier/chunkier, but they the base colors were blendable and easy enough to use. I did find that they applied decently over primer when applied dry compared to on bare skin.
