Editor's Review

NYX Mermaid Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.043 oz.) is described as a "opalescent mint with gold shimmer." It's a brightened, aqua green with subtle, warm undertones and warmer gold shimmer. It had good pigmentation but was prone to crumbling, so it didn't smooth out as well on the skin as I would have liked. This was another shade that seemed to apply better with a damp brush or over a slightly tacky base. It faded within seven hours of wear. Lancome Fashion Forward (P, $19.00) is lighter, warmer. Make Up For Ever #53 (LE, $23.00) is warmer. MAC Lucky in Love (LE, $21.00) is darker. CoverGirl Turquoise Glow (325) (LE, $4.99) is darker, warmer. theBalm B2 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Too Faced Joy (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. theBalm #36 (P, $6.50) is warmer. Guerlain Blue Ocean (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Anastasia Aqua (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Guerlain Blue Ocean (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer.

Beautiful pigment and shine (with a primer of course) but there is a big flaw, they break VERY easily. I have had two of these break and they do not repress well. If you travel with these - beware, they will shatter. Which is very sad, because the product is amazing

I agree with the 1st community review on this. It does crease and fade SOOO much faster without a good primer. However this colour is really hard to find in the high-end and drugstore market. And this is the LIGHTEST mint green eyeshadow I could find/purchase! Pigmentation is pretty impressive. Texture is acceptable. Looks so fantastic on the inner corners. A good buy!

Gorgeous shade! I get so many compliments when I wear this. My only criticism is that it doesn't last very long. I experienced creasing within the first 3 hours of wear (without a primer). With a primer I was able to get about 8 hours of wear before creasing. Even so I will certainly repurchase this shade because it is a show stopper.
