Can I mix gloss paint into eggshell to get more sheen?

The paint store told me that BM did not make Kitchen & Bath paint anymore. Said that eggshell would be fine. Now I've read BM website to find out K&B paint still exists and that more sheen inhibits less moisture absorption into the paint. I still have 1/2 gallon eggshell left. Can I buy a quart of semi-gloss or gloss and mix it in to get more of a pearl finish? I don't want to spend another $40. for a gallon if I can help it. TIA for any advice!

Sure, just make sure you mix it very very well.
