VI Purple #1 is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery texture that sheered out a bit and had some fallout during application. The eyeshadow blended out well, though, but performed better over primer, which helped maintain its intensity. It wore well for six hours on its own before fading noticeably on me.
