Deborah Lippmann The Mermaids is new for summer 2013. This new collection features four new shades, all inspired by last year’s fan favorite Mermaid’s Dream.
Deborah wanted to create a new family of colors inspired by the same glittery, shimmery formula of Mermaid’s Dream. I think she did just perfectly! These all definitely seem to belong to the same family.
The one I do not have is called Mermaid’s Eyes, which is described as a seaside cerulean. The other three have a pretty nice formula. They all were just two coats. I got a good amount of base and glitter coverage with each coat, and there was no sliding of the glitter with the second coat after waiting about 2 minutes in-between. These actually look a bit less gritty and lumpy to me than Mermaid’s Dream, so that’s a bonus!
Million Dollar Mermaid
Million Dollar Mermaid is a tangerine shade with orange micro and small glitter bits. It has a shimmery gold look to the base color. Really pretty and unique shade I think. Love it for summer.
Mermaid’s Kiss has a rose pink base with gold shimmer and then pale pink and fuchsia small glitter bits. The pale pink glitter bits are a little hard to see, they kind of blend in. I like the bright pink ones though.
Do The Mermaid
Do The Mermaid has a lavender base with purple micro glitter, small bright purple glitter and small pale purple glitter. It also has that gold shimmer with it, but it’s more subtle than the other two. This is my favorite one. It seemed maybe a little more glittery than the previous two and I like all the various shades of purple within it.
Overall: Fun collection! I like all three of these, but think Million Dollar Mermaid and Do The Mermaid are the best two for me. I love that they cover completely in two coats and the fact that the glitter doesn’t move all over is a HUGE plus!
Will you be picking any of these ones up?
