My Experience with NYX Single Eyeshadow – Mermaid Green:

Today, I have this gorgeous green eyeshadow to review. I have always preferred blues over greens and have very rarely experimented with green color – be it eyeliners or eye shadows.  This is indeed the first green eye shadow I have ever tried and one of the most wearable options for our Indian skin tones.

The shadow comes in a basic small black square packaging with a transparent lid, which shuts well. The shade name, ingredients and everything is mentioned on the back side, but is not visible due to price tag and date details.

The shade “Mermaid Green,” is a medium forest green shade with frosty finish and subtle shimmer.  It has very slight blue tones to it which is barely visible and only under certain lights. It is not too dull or very bright, yet vibrant shade and looks subtle and wearable giving the right pop of color. The shimmer it has is very subtle and just imparts some sheen. I am absolutely in love with this shade, it really makes my brown eyes stand out and can be worn in many ways as well.  It looks great on its own with some black liner, also pairs very well with black eye shadow to create a green smokey eye and when used with a damp brush, it doubles up as a gorgeous jewel-toned green eyeliner.  The shade is often compared to MAC Humid, although I am not very sure about the similarities

The color is really pigmented but still very buildable. The texture is really good, it is very smooth and velvety soft and has very minimal fallout when compared to other shades.  It is quite pigmented and has a good color payoff without a primer as well.  With  a primer underneath, it really pops in its full intensity. There is very little fallout while blending, but that can be solved by dabbing some loose powder under the eyes before applying the shadow to catch the fallout, but that is very much expected since it is a darker shade and definitely not a con for me. It works well with layering with other shades and blends very easily due to the smooth texture. With a primer, it stayed well for 8 hours on my oily eyelids.

Overall, I am really glad that I got this shade as it is one of the most flattering green shades and the quality is very good.  I have swatched it with a primer on the left and worn it alone on the right.
