NARS Pointe Noire is a moderately warm-toned, dark plum with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.04 oz.
Pointe Noir is a deep, pinky-plum with subtle, warm undertones and gold and plum sparkle. This shade is in the permanent range (Hardwired Eyeshadow), though I found the version in the palette to pull warmer/redder and had a smoother, denser consistency (didn't feel like the other glittery/sparkly shades). It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer when applied dry, though a wet application would help it appear a bit more metallic but wasn't necessary for opacity. It stayed on well for eight hours with very little fallout over time.
