NARS Chile is a slightly warm-toned, light purple with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.04 oz.
NARS Chile Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a silvery gray base with pink-to-lavender shifting sparkle and micro-glitter. It had chunkier sparkle/glitter compared to other Hardwired shades, which made it harder to work with when using it dry. The consistency was drier and rougher due to the amount of sparkle, and there was a moderate amount of fallout if I applied it dry. When I used it with a dampened brush, the eyeshadow had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that adhered more smoothly to bare skin and had just a little bit of fallout to content with during application. It wore well for seven hours with some fallout dry and eight hours with very little fallout damp.
