NARS Ecstasy Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a pale, minty green base with flecks of gold, green, and copper sparkle and micro-glitter. It looked more interesting in the pan and swatched than on my eye, where it looked more like a pale green with warmer undertones. The texture was drier to the touch and was more loosely pressed, so there was some excess product kicked up when it was used with a dry brush, and then there was some fallout during application unless I was very careful to press and push it onto my lid. It was much easier to use it with a dampened brush, as the product applied more evenly without fallout. It had medium, buildable pigmentation regardless of application method but a dampened brush built up the color faster. The color stayed on well for six and a half hours and eight hours for dry and wet applications with moderate fallout worn dry and little fallout when worn wet.
