Languages without adjectives

Some time ago I read an article about languages which mentioned in passing
that some languages have no or few adjectives, using (if I understood the
article correctly) nouns and verbs(?) for the same purposes.

Has anyone ever used this in a constructed language? How does it work?

If it has not been used in conlangs, can anyone point me in the direction
of some natural languages with this feature?
