UPDATE: I actually did end up trying this shadow in the crease and by the time I buff it down and do my usual spritzing after I have my makeup on, it didn't look any more shiny or shimmery than my other Sterling shadow I most often use in the crease called Cocoa. It ended up being fine and it is an interesting color to use as an alternate to the more straight up brown like cocoa. I love both. It still goes on primarily brown IMO but with a hint of mauve. Very pretty color.
