NARS Stud Hardwired Eyeshadow (2018) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden taupe with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. Sometimes, I want to describe it as a deep, warm pewter. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied with a dry brush, and it was buildable, blendable, and only had slight fallout that stayed on well for seven hours (with slight fallout). When I tried using it with a dampened brush, it was richly pigmented and had a smoother, more blendable consistency that adhered well to bare skin for eight and a half hour wear. The new formula is slightly drier than the previous one, which was easier to use dry but the quality and application were similar when using the new formula with a wet brush.
