Glossy Eyeshadow
Does anyone have any tips on how to get this look, and on how to prevent creasing?

Er...I know this might sound ghetto but... maybe swipe some vaseline on over a stain? Moisture and shine in one.... how bad can it be? Just make sure you don't touch your eyes or your whole face will be shiny!

You can buy shimmery.glossy eyeshadows in a tube that sort of look like lipgloss. I have a gold one and its super gloss.

Really? where did you buy it from?

My only hesistation with the vaseline is the creasing, I have deep set eyes and almost every shadow creases on me if I dont use a good primer.

I've been searching for glossy eyeshadows too but no luck..
I thought about using vaseline but I was not so sure about it.
misssakura where did you buy yours?

Another idea, put (non-sticky) transparent lipgloss on your lids? You know glosses nowadays, how they're designed to shine, be non-transferable and non-sticky and etc. etc. ...

Vaseline rubs off too easily and doesn't help retain the colour of whatever powder eyeshadow you've put on.
I use YSL glossy touch...it's pretty multi-purpose and you can add sheen to cheeks, lips and eyes and it's non-sticky!

Thanks susie!! That's exactly what I was looking for!
pinksatin I think sephora here carries YSL cosmetics. Almost every store that sells beauty products has YSL so maybe it won't be hard to find them. If not, there is always the internet..

I've never seen it and I am a whore at sephora. I think they just have the fragrances. I bet it's at saks or neiman marcus cosmetic counters though. DO you remember how much it was?
eta:I found this @ mac's site. I haven't tried it so I can't give a testimony but it is probably easier to find.

^^Really? The first place I tried when I was searching about a glossy eyeshadow was MAC. I think it was because I'd seen an editorial and it said that the product used for the glossy effect was MAC.
But when I went to the store and asked them about they said that they didn't know anything and there was no such product : (
Also, you are probably right about sephora not carrying YSL but YSL cosmetics are so common here (they are almost everywhere) that I assumed that sephora would also have them.
Anyway, thanks for the link!!

You can buy YSL Glossy Touch at Nordstrom online here. Priced at $23.50 I got mine free though coz they were running some kind of offer when you buy Touche Eclat at Selfridges.

I wish I could buy stuff online from Nordstrom. I just found on their site the MJ watches I saw on your blog ( ) but they don't ship internationally
