NARS Frioul Velvet Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a taupe-brown base with green-to-blue shifting shimmer. It had sheer coverage, which I was able to build to semi-opaque coverage, but it had a tendency to look a little uneven on my lid. I could see it looking more even on deeper skin tones and could work as a smoky, one-and-done shade. The consistency was slightly drier and thinner, so it did tug a bit on the lid initially. It lasted for six hours on me before creasing.
