“Look at this shadow, isn’t it neat? I don’t think your collections complete, until you’re the girl, the girl who’s got every MUG shadow!”....Ok so those aren’t the exact words to Ariel’s song, but I really think you should own every Makeup Geek shadow…especially this shimmery ocean green color!
The Bottom Line:

Great but such a mess Review by Rayann
I have never been so excited about an eyeshadow color that was the perfect blue/green/gold name-fits it perfect. I have had the eyeshadow for about a year now and as of the last month or so I have found the eyeshadow creases in less than 5 hours or so. I have tried everything and nothing keeps the color from disappearing. I am glad the price was not much because I had to toss it. (Posted on 2/11/16)
Not what I was hoping for Review by Heather
I was so excited to receive this because I don't normally buy these kinds of colors...and I was really disappointed. It goes on really patchy and definitely loses its intensity. I have tried putting it on many ways: wet, dry, with Fix+ but nothing seems to help. (Posted on 9/25/15)
Gorgeous colour Review by Kirstin
This is a beautiful green/teal shimmery shade and swatches great, but when I place it my lid I lose of little of the colour intensity. I've had mine for at least a year so maybe that's why. (Posted on 6/16/15)
Not a Blue :/ Review by Shannon
The shadow is just like the pan pic, but Not at all like the sample swatches!!! It is beautiful, but if u are thinking of adding it to your Blues.... IT IS A GREEN teal, Not Blue one ! (Posted on 6/9/15)
Beautiful colour Review by Adelya
It looks the same as on the picture. Unusual and complex colour. Enough pigmented and stays all day. Love it. (Posted on 2/16/15)
6/10 stars Review by Stephanie
Mermaid is a beautiful shimmery teal that is so stunning. It reminds me of what mermaid scales look like in my imagination. It does fade though, even with a primer. Maybe it would hold its color better with primer + base? I'll try this the next time I use it. Be prepared to touch up from time to time. I really wish it lasted longer (Posted on 7/19/14)

Beautiful... Review by Sandrine from France
I am so in love with this eyeshadow ! There are many ways to use it, and I just can't get enough... (Posted on 2/5/14)
Wanted so bad to love it.. Review by Holly
I was excited for this fun color, and it's definitely pretty in the pan, however applying it on my eyelids is another story. Finger, brush, then another brush- with primer of course- and yet no technique is working. It instantly starts to fade from my eyelids, and I'm a pale, blonde hair, blue eyes girl. Feeling sad. Wanted to love this color. I've noticed the matte shadows are all great...but the ones with shimmer seem to not show up or stick on my eyelid...hmmm... (Posted on 1/14/14)
Luv this color!! Review by Sharmina
I love this color!!!
I use it on my lid with Purely Naked at the crease and some black gel eye liner and mascara. Pop of colour that is still work appropriate.
Plus it stays on all day.
I first bought this color with 7 Makeup Geek shadows. Now i've ordered another 4 plus 2 pigments. Can't wait to try those. (Posted on 7/18/13)

Love It Review by JENNIFER
This color is beautiful, it is very close to MAC's Aquadisiac and MAC's Teal color that comes in the duo with brown, does not have name on it... would recommend to anyone

My favorite Review by Mina
I just discovered makeupgeek eye shadows about a month ago. Started with an order of about 10, then added another 5 and ordered another 5 today. I love them. I have light olive skin, dark hair and really light blue eyes. This mermaid color is my favorite. I thought I would never wear blue eye shadow again but it is such a beautiful color. I use too faced shadow insurance have not had any problems with it staying on. You can make it look really bright or tone it down very easily. (Posted on 7/29/12)
Beautiful color! Review by Shea
I'm slowly adding to my collection of Makeup Geek eyeshadows and this is the first one that I've been able to try out that isn't a more neutral, basic color...and I LOVE IT!! It really does look pretty creamy and I don't have to pile it on for the color to show. Great job! (Posted on 7/19/12)
Love...Love! Review by Devon
I'm crazy about color and this color is silky smooth, and reflexes like you would think a mermaids tail would look like, duh, that's why she calls it mermaid! lol love it! (Posted on 5/17/12)
disappointed Review by Pink Star
I too wanted to like this color...it fades away very quickly....i agree with kristen no matter what base i use it just will not stay on my eyes. does not last very long at all. it is a beautiful color though. i love the color. i would skip this one if i were you just because it dont last long. i dont wear it bc i know it will wear off so soon. (Posted on 4/26/12)
I want to love it..but I can't Review by Kristen
I like this color a lot BUT no matter what base I used it just falls flat. It tends to crease and fade quite fast and I had to constantly touch it up or one of the times I just flat out covered it up with a darker pigment because I needed to get moving. It has such a great look and initial pigmentation and the formulation is so smooth and inviting but I base my choices for my go to colors on wearability and longevity of wear. I need it to hold up in the Texas heat and for at least 7 or 8 hours most days and I just find this one didn't. Makes me sad it wasn't quite what I expected but if you are only going out for a couple hours it still works in a pinch. (Posted on 4/24/12)
Ready for a Lagoon Review by Leslie
I LOVE this color. I used it when you did the colorful smokey eye and it was by far my favorite. All I need now is a sea, my prince (my hubby) and I am ready. I even have the red hair! (Posted on 1/26/12)
Well done! Review by Valasia
I received this eye shadow yesterday via mail, along with the other three I purchased (Sensuous, Shimmermint and Ocean Breeze), and at first I was amazed by the colours, because it is one thing to see them in your computer screen and another to see them up close and personal.
The next thing that made an impression was the colour payoff they all have, which is remarkable. Then, it was the softness of the shadows as well as the durability and the quality – all of them exceptional. Today at work I am wearing the “Mermaid” eye shadow and I have received more questions about them and compliments that I can count.
You really have done a great work – keep it up!
P.S. I cannot wait for the lipsticks to come out!
