Viseart Illicit is a moderately warm-toned, dark plum with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow.
Illicit is a deep plum that looked rather matte but had a few bits of sparkle strewn throughout. I found that the sparkles were barely noticeable on the lid, so it functioned more as a matte finish when it came to adding depth to a look. The consistency was smooth, just a touch dry to the touch, but it blended out nicely and had nearly opaque coverage, which was buildable to full coverage by adding less than an additional layer on top. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.
