Can anyone recommend any? I used to use a silver one from Boots 17 but they discontinued it a little while ago. I don't like the pewter colour in the No7 equivalent and I've been scouring the cheaper brand ranges without success.
Anything worth checking out in some of the pricier brands in John Lewis/Debenams?
Barry M does an amazing eye glitter dust that you press on with your finger. It's gorgeous. I used it a lot as a make up artist. If you have a grey shadow or a matte shadow of the colour you wish for (like a dove grey in your case since you want silver) and then pat/press the glitter dust on over the shadow, you'll get a shimmering, beautiful result (it's not all glittery and messy like a kid's school project! And you won't end up looking like Ziggy Stardust, promise). You can wear it on its own too.
Have a look at these from MAC; Electra, Forgery, Filament, Silver Ring or Pigment in Silver Fog, I've attached a picture that shows the difference between them quite well. You might also want to take a look at a cream shadow like Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Platinum.
