Benefit Cosmetics’ Samba-dy Loves Me cream shadow

Not as “flash” as some of Benefit's colors, and a rather obvious color to boot (which probably explains why it wasn't made regular.) It's not a satin finish, not a frost or metallic, but has just a hint of glimmer so it isn't really matte, either. Think of it as a quieter version of MAC's Rubenesque. Without primer, I can wear this color (most of Benefit's creaseless cream shadows, actually) for about four hours before it starts to crease up a bit. The curse of super-oily lids! But it's a nice, serviceable color, great for days when I want a little more color than UDPP but not a whole lot more.
