Anastasia Violet Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a very powdery texture that was prone to sheering out, so it wasn't a shade that worked well on bare skin and would benefit from a lightly tacky or thicker primer. It had semi-opaque coverage that was somewhat buildable, but it tended to look uneven the more I tried to blend it out/apply. This shade lasted for seven hours before fading.
