Surabaya I is a medium brown with warm, golden undertones and barely-there micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The consistency was soft, velvety, and a smidgen dusty in the pan but applied evenly and blended out nicely on my skin. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
