Hi,

I am looking for eye shadows that give an effect of wet lids. I know that MAC pigments from Metals collection give such effect... (BTW I love their Silver Metal pigment) Any other ideas?

Thank you in advance!

you can try any shimery eyeshadows or just apply a very thin layer of vaseline over your shadows

Just be careful when applying the vaseline as it will clog your lids pores.

I've used Revlon's Eyeglide Shimmer Shadow in Pearl and Sandstone before with good results for that fresh, un-made-up look. The only problem I've had is that it sometimes gets that crease that "wet" shadows get.

I'd be a little wary of skin care products that have petroleum or mineral oil in them (at least for extended, regular use):

[[Excerpt]]

You wouldn’t think of leaving an antifreeze spill on your garage floor where a beloved pet might ingest it, so why would you put the same ingredients on your face? It sounds horrific and it happens every day.

The big offender is propylene glycol. The major ingredient in antifreeze, propylene glycol is used in skin care treatment products to facilitate the absorption of other ingredients and to prevent the product from melting or freezing in extreme heat or cold. Propylene glycol is known to cause liver and kidney damage, respiratory toxicity, skin toxicity, immunotoxicity and neurotoxicity.

Propylene glycol and petroleum found in petroleum, petroleum jelly and mineral oil are among the most commonly used ingredients in skin care treatment products. [[/Excerpt]]

If you put a little foundation and powder on your eyelid first, it will reduce the risk of vaseline clogging your pores. I wouldn't do it everyday or for an extended period of time but it's a fun look for a night out or a photoshoot.
