Addiction is a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a lightly sparkly, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage, and it was easy to blend on the skin. The texture wasn't too soft or too firm, and it didn't emphasize my pores when applied. The color lasted for almost eight hours on me.
