Default Trying to identify color

So I have a Syrian hamster who I know is a standard satin. I just can't figure out her color. I am pretty sure she is either a cinnamon, champagne, or cream. These colors are so close its hard to tell. Also how do you tell if you ham has red eyes? Is it obvious?

Here is pumpkin

To me she looks like a Red eyed cream. From the first picture it looks like she has red eyes - hamster can have various shades of red eyes depending on their coat colour. You can see her eyes are a dark red which is known as claret red in REC's

Oooh, shiny!

I don't see any sign of cheek flashes on her, so not cinnamon. Champagne tends to have a little more brown in the coat, so I'd say she's a red-eyed cream satin.

Red eyes are, well, red. XD They look red regardless of lighting, but can be harder to tell if their eye colour is particularly dark. Black/brown-eyed hamsters don't have any sign of red in their eyes. Here's my red-eyed Bubbles, compared to his black-eyed sister, Pippy (RIP).

Edit: Of course I'd get ninja'd as I was finding suitable images. XD To show the variations of redness that can occur even in the same hamster, here's my Fluffy IV. He's a long-haired, red-eyed banded cinnamon, with one bright red and one dark red eye.

You're welcome, glad I could help. She's very beautiful I didn't know at first until I started studying the genetics and coat colours of Syrians. It's very interesting.

Aww thank you! >.<
I would love to learn more because it is such an interesting thing. I also have rats and their fur color can say a lot about them in regards to breeding. So I am wondering if the same thing is true about hamsters.
