Subdue is a light-medium lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color payoff was mostly opaque, though it needed a second layer for truly opaque coverage. The texture was moderately dense with larger sparkle, so it did not apply as evenly as desired with a dry brush but was easily improved by using a primer or a dampened brush for application. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me.
