NARS Rio de la Plata Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a pale gold with warm, peachy undertones and a sparkling, glittery finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage when applied with a dry brush and slight fallout over bare skin; it had less fallout just applied over a primer than I expected, but it was best applied using a dampened brush. Applied with a dampened brush, it had opaque pigmentation with a shiny, sparkling finish that was instantly brightening wherever I put it. It had a touch of fallout over time but held up rather well over eight hours with a wet application whereas dry application had moderate fallout over time.
