NARS Stricken Powerchrome Loose Eye Pigment ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The texture was soft, more loosely-pressed (but more pressed than loose) with a light creaminess to it. Applied with fingertips, it was slightly more sparkling but less even compared to applying with a dampened brush, which gave it a more metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage regardless of application method. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours but had a bit of fallout over time.
