Well since you brought it up. Benjamin Moore F215 80 Flat Black is BM's Canada's line of paint under the Collection name. A similar paint would be what you might find in your local store as Regal N215. Below are some codes that might help you look in the store
Regal Flat Finish = N215
Regal Primer = N216
Regal Matte Finish = N221
Regal Pearl Finish = N310
Regal Eggshell Finish = N319
Regal Semi-Gloss Finish = N333
The Satin sheen you mentioned above is between Pearl and Semi-Gloss; looking at my sheen chart it is closer to Pearl.
If you decide you want to try Regal Select which has a lower VOC than Regal as well as a few other attributes here are the product #s
Regal Select Flat Finish = 547
Regal Select Matte Finish = 548
Regal Select Eggshell Finish = 549
Regal Select Pearl Finish = 550
Regal Select Semi-Gloss Finish = 551
