Seduction is a medium-dark bronze with warm, golden undertones and a frosted sheen. It was buildable from semi-sheer to fully opaque color payoff, if desired, and it had a soft, lightly dusty consistency. It was very easy to blend and diffuse across the skin, and it wore well for eight hours. Of the four shades, this one had the strongest sheen (and most pigmentation to begin with), so while I didn't have issues with it emphasizing my skin's natural texture, if there was a shade prone to it, my guess would be this is the potential troublemaker.
