5 Shimmering Silver Eyeshadows

I love a really shimmery silver on the lid with a matte gray or black eyeshadow in the crease for a very traditional, monochromatic smoky eye!

What’s your favorite silver eyeshadow?

    I think Loreal Liquid Diamond is marketed as Flashback Silver in India. Love the complexity of the shade!

    When I saw this post I thought these shadows are gorgeous then I realized silver is the colour I own the least of..think I need to get some soon:)

    I love the silvers you chose!
    I don’t know if you’re still looking for ideas for these, but what about gunmetal? It’s one of my favorite colors for makeup, but it doesn’t fall into silver in my opinion.

    Greys & silvers are my 2nd favorite eyeshadow shade after purples/eggplants! For pure silvers, I’d choose Chanel’s Smoky Eye Quad (which also has a lovely gunmetal grey).  For unusual silvers, Melusine I which is a silvery lilac.  I really, *really* wanted to get UD’s Strip and S&M (esp. Strip which is simply gorgeous) but the day I went to get them from Sephora, they were sold out and that afternoon was UD’s China announcement, so…..  <mournful sigh>

    As someone who is pretty much indifferent to silver eyeshadow, I can’t really say that I have a “favorite”. I happen to have *alot*, ranging from silvery-white (KvD Holy Bible) to deep gunmetal (UD Barracuda), but I don’t wear any of them often. If I do chhose a silver-like shadow, I opt for something like the lighter side of NARS Melusine, which is more of a “warmed-over”, lilac-silver. I also like the two shades of NARS Tzarine mixed together, as the gold side lightens & warms up the gunmetal side.

  7. Seems like these would be a little bit hard to wear…or maybe I’m just not a fan!

  8. ahhh want that Inglot want bad. STill haven’t tried anything from them–but I need to. I think they may carry it at my nearest Macy’s

    Have you tried the silver shadow from Tarte’s “True Blood” palette? It’s the most amazing silver I’ve ever seen.

      @ingerasata I totally forgot about that one! It is very pretty. Now I want to take out my palette & play with it, LOL.

  12. Nars Katmandu..  do they still make it??  Phenomenal and you only need the tiniest bit.

    Silver is beautiful. One of my favorite colors! MAC Electra is one of the first silver shadows I played with. 

  14. UD Strip and S &M….too bad they are discontinued…or to be discontinued.

  15. I loved Electra and Silver Ring from MAC. I LOVE Fyrinnae Dinosaur Plushie :)
