If gold isn’t quite your style when it comes to the holidays, how about silver? I personally love wearing silver as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow base for a smoky eye.

  1. Lit Tinsel Town — a glittering, holographic silver perfect for adding sparkle and dazzle to any look
  2. Maybelline Silver Strike — a bright, metallic silver that’s easy to use as an eyeliner or as a cream eyeshadow
  3. Urban Decay Cuff — a bright, silver eyeliner with a soft metallic sheen
  4. NYX Ice Glitter — silver and holographic glitter top coat to add just that touch of wintry dazzle to your nails
  5. Inglot #447 — a bright, light metallic silver powder eyeshadow that opens and brightens the eye

What are your favorite silver-hued beauty products?

    Is that 2nd one a color tattoo, not Nars?
    Love that glitter & liner :)

  2. The second pic looks like one of the maybelline colour tattoo shadows but the description below says it’s Nars Interstellar. Sorry to be pedantic!!

    I think the second picture is depicting a color tattoo, not Interstellar. Just a heads up!

    I love pairing loreal infallible eyeshadow in liquid diamond with maybelline color tattoo in toughest taupe for that sparkling silver look

  5. The Lit glitter and NYX polish are so sparklingly pretty, they’d be pretty amazing together

  6. I love Cuff! I’m going to wear it to see the movie Frozen today :-) (yes, I am a big kid)

    Another silvery favourite of mine is Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre in Fantasme. You can put that stuff basically anywhere and it adds the most gorgeous subtle sparkle. Perfect for Christmas!

  7. I want Lit glitters!

  12. I’m not heavily into silver shadows or liners, etc. The only silver shadows I have are those that came in pre-made palettes. There is a silvery taupe shadow in my beloved Guerlain Les Fumes that I love bit it’s not really a silver at all and it’s the sort of shade that I can wear every day for work, etc. For a true silver, the only one I have is Ooh & Aah from TF Enchanted Glamourland but I rarely use it.
