Urban Decay Misdemeanor is a moderately warm-toned, dark blue with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Misdemeanor is described as a "deep olive green matte with green micro-shimmer." It's a muted, bluish-gray with cool undertones and fine shimmer over a matte finish. It looks more like a semi-matte finish on the lid. It had semi-sheer coverage with a dusty consistency that helped it blend on the lid, but it always looked sheer. It needed a tackier base to help it adhere without sheering out. It lasted for six hours before fading noticeably on me.
