Would You Wear Jennifer Lopez's Silver Eyeshadow?

04/27/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Jennifer Lopez is having a major metallic moment — first she wore silver bell-bottoms, and now she’s got on super-sparkly silver eyeshadow!  At an event last night in Los Angeles, the white pantsuit-clad star showed off her twist on smoky eyes and pale lips.  We always think J. Lo looks great with dramatic eyes and nude gloss, but we’re still contemplating how we feel about the glitter effect. Tell us what you think: Would you wear J. Lo’s makeup? Do you like the sparkling silver shadow?

I think Jennifer looks beautiful!

faith on

sure why not, but only for an evening event, like a new year’s eve party or something! and i wouldn’t go TOO heavy on the glitter, lest i look like a drag queen!

M on

If your going out to a club and just want to have fun then yeah I’d def wear it!

cbelle on

I’m loving this eye shadow. It’s a great look for the club, or a concert or something.

Alice on

I think it looks pretty. I wouldn’t wear it to work or anything, but it works for an entertainer.

Farah on

It looks good, but I think the time has come put the “caboodal” make-up case that worked 10 years ago and start using a more mature pallet of colors. I don’t mean you can’t use a little glitter here and there, but she might even look fresher and younger if she doesn’t try to hard.

Elda on

don’t like the eye shadow and she is sure looking old these days, how old is she? 50? hope her days are numbered in the spot lite because i’m sick of her!

dawn on

Would i wear it out and about to the grocery store no but if it was a night out at a club sure.

Veronica B. on

Ahhh YEA…depending on the occasion of course.

Aoife on

If she feels the need to wear something silver I think this eyeshadow is a better bet than those trousers!! I think this look is fine, when her eyes are open you can hardly see the glitter anyway! I think it suits her, kinda wish i could get away with wearing glitter :)

Ashley on

She looks beautiful, I actually have some silver eyeshadow something like that. I put on silver glitter over the shadow, and some dark eyeliner when I go out on the weekends. I get mad kudos for it!

Jennifer on

She stole this look from me, but then I’m also a J(ennifer) Lo so I guess it’s OK! I love this look with a sleek black outfit with silver accents, particularly with my dark hair and eyes.

Lorna on

I love the silver shadow, it goes great with her skin tone. I have very fair skin, I don’t think I could pull it off the way she does. I think it’s great for an out on the town look, although too much glitter does strike me as a late 90’s look.

chelsea on

I think it looks great.
Its not too dramatic at all. I think it’s perfect with what she’s wearing

Lilly on

Hell yea i would..if it woul dlook as good on me. And umm..Jen looking old? I hope i look half as pretty as her as i age. I’m only 17 now but you got aget old sometime right? she is aging gracefully and beautifully Ms.Critical. Geesh.

Aubryn on

I think its really sexy. Id wear it if i was goin out. Most definetely for an evening out.

Lisa on

Ofcourse i would!!!Actually my friends says Is JLO my older sister…lol…The makeups she wears, honestly goes with her looks and body/face stuctures… She is my icon and my inspiration.I take advice from her style:)

Rebecca on

I love it! It’s not something I would wear unless I was dressing up for a party or big event. Jennifer’s skin tone and subdued makeup on the rest of her face really make the dramatic eyes look pretty.

katy on

i think it looks very pretty, it shows off the color of her eyes. i would wear it on nights out to a club or special event.

EricsGrrl on

I think for a night out on the town the shadow looks great. What I don’t like is her ratty hair line. The curls down at the bottom are pretty, but her roots could use a good brushing.

Kat on

Being part PR… I don’t really care too much for her. I love most of her clothes… But I have to admit it: Her Eyes are sopretty with this make-up. I really love it – I don’t wear make-up (full)… but I would wear that eyeshadow for sure!!! Lips look great, too!

Sandra in Detroit on

I absolutely wouldnt wear it, but she can pull it off. The contrast of the metallic silver and her beautiful caramel skin is really perfect for a night out in the summer.

Kristen on

I love it!! It looks awesome. Metallic shadows are very hot this season

Jeninfer on

She’s a movie star, so she has to be a little more “tricked out” than the rest of us. It looks beautiful on her though. I love it.

dznr on

Jennifer Lopez is so beautiful she could get by with about anything. This eyeshadow is gorgeous on her! Go Jennifer!!!!!

haz on

the chick looks hot in anything and with anything.
She’s gotta leave that skinny bug looking Marc Anthony however.

h on

While I’m not a loyal JLo fan, I do love the eye shadow. It’s fun and bold, great for a night out.

O'Wryly on

Uh, yeah sure … I’d wear it … but only if I stood on a street corner to make my living. Just when you think she can’t look any tackier or like more of a sleaze than she already does …

Shanell Williams on

Sure especially if I could look like Jennifer. She’s gorgeous!

nhilario on

She looks sultry and sexy with glittery eyeshadow—the shadow really complements her olive complexion and offsets her eyes making them appear to be lighter. I sometimes wear a very sheer, glittery pink powder during day outings with my son—I am a stay-at-home mom…whatever works, huh???

Pine on

I dont care about the eye shadow, but I have noticed lately that she is getting collagen or restylin injections in her upper lip. It definitley looks a little puffier than before!

glad on

i would wear that eyeshadow that she wore… i like it it gives it a nice dramatic look !

laura on

honestly, for everyday wear yes, it is too much. however, it’s just enough for an event or a night out on the town. i personally wouldn’t wear my makeup that thick and dark cause i don’t wear makeup but it was done pretty. i don’t feel it’s too much. jennifer is gorgeous no matter what.if it was black eye shadow then that would look awful.

who cares on

I already wear silver eyeshadow! it is so awesome. If you don’t put on as much as her, it can be really cute! Putting on a littlecan really open up your eyes, especially if you have naturally tan skin.

SunShine on

J. Lo hired for $2 million for a party. Someone needs to tell them better tell them that the chick can’t sing !!

Kaitlyn C. on

I actually like the smokey eye with the silver and glitter. Not too much glitter, but some is okay. It doesn’t look awful on J.Lo, it actually looks really nice and suttle.

I wouldn’t wear this look for everyday things, like grocery shopping and errands, but I’d definitely wear it to a club or an event.

Bre on

i love it, it’s cool and hip.I don’t recommend it for people over early 30’s but I think it’s hott matter of fact I think I might go bye some.

Tina on

She’s young, gorgeous, and trendsetting. I like the eyeshadow a lot, but… I would prefer it a little lighter only because her skin is so beautiful why would you want people to not see it? Yes, I would wear it, just lighter, and maybe a tad of purple eyeliner, to a party or something

Amanda on

looks sexy!

amber on

i love this eyeshadow on her but thats all…shes looking older lately and her hair looks awful as well, she used to be so beautiful.

alia on

Jennifer looks awesome!!and metallics are really in right now…it looks great on her…

(BTW: “SUNSHINE”; your statement is not even relevant to this post …how you gonna hate on JLo??! She’s one of a kind… i’ll warn you right now…people are probably not going to respond to your comment very lightly!)

lizz on

Well it depends on the event for me. she looks very nice though.

rachel on

I think she looks amazing like always, even without makeup!

jessica on

she looks great, but i don’t think i would wear it

Caroline on

I like it! I definitely would wear it. I think it looks great.

LIZ on

ABSOLUTLY! if i could get away with
having my makeup done like that and looking
amazing then of course. plus the silver really make
your eyes (brown especially) I say two thumbs wayy up!

Milly on

It looks nice to wear for special occasions ..especially in the evening ..not to wear every day..like work

Toya B. on

You’re right Elda she does look a little old, I guess age is starting to show on her but it might just be a bad shot. I’ve seen her look GREAT and youngin other recent pics. She’s gorgeous either way. I do like the look but only for like a evening or night out.I don’t think I would use such a bold shade of silver either maybe something less dramatic.

lula on

Jennifer is beautiful in every way,absolutely elegant

Tasha on

Jennifer just needs to stop thinking that she is a beauty queen. Personality makes her look ugly no matter what colour eye shadow she wears. She really isnt a nice person at all!!!!!

jamie on

it really looks good, but umm she doesn’t look to happy in the photo but her style is really hott i like it alot.

Emma Watson's #1 Fan on

I wouldn’t put on that much eyeshadow, but on Jennifer it looks great! I don’t usually wear makeup except for a little bit when I’m going out or for dinner or something like that.

Rachel on

It’s like she has a night-time star on her eyelids.

Judy on

If it looked that good on me, absolutely yes!

Steve on

Maybe she’s a huge fan of Metalica.

Erica on

Enough about the shadow, I am more interested in her nude lip color. It looks so great with her skin color. She always rocks the perfect nude shade of lips (lipstick, gloss-what is this stuff?) Does anyone know if Scott Barnes is still her makeup artist?

Pat on

I have seen an improvement in speed but, only somemites. I have noticed that when I have a lot of tabs open(say 10 or so) then, my computer slows down dramatically. Not sure why. Wouldn’t mind some insight.
