NARS Madrid Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dirty, taupe-brown with warm gold and lavender sparkle. It had medium coverage when applied dry and opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The dampened brush also yielded a better consistency, as it was smoother, adhered more evenly, and resulted in less fallout, though this shade was somewhat usable--at least over an eyeshadow primer--dry for a subtle, sparkling effect. It lasted for six hours dry (with some fallout) and eight hours wet (with minor fallout).
