MAC’s Macroviolet fluidliner

I call this a creme, but there are faint, sparse flecks of copper and silver in this one. The finish is definitely not metallic, nor is it really a shimmer - what you see most of is the deep violet that's dark but doesn't look blackened. Macroviolet is part of the regular line, so if it's out of stock at a MAC boutique it's just temporary. This color has been available at least since early 2008. I don't know when it was introduced. (It may have been one of the first Fluidliner shades, for all I know.) This color applies a bit more evenly than the metallic-finish fluidliners like Rich Ground, and has an excellent color saturation. I like the flecks of bronze and silver - they add to the liner without going overboard.
