When I sat down to do my Wet’n’wild Midnight Mermaid collection review I was really drawn to the Metallic Liquid Eyeshadows. I love the idea of just swiping on glitter without the mess of multiple products. It seems like the kind of thing you could even throw in your makeup bag to take you from day to night. I was determined to try these just about every way I thought people might use them, so I used them on my eyes, brows and my lips. I did smile and rub tests to see if the lipsticks would kiss off, and rub tests to see if the eye glitter would rub off. I’m pretty sure I tested the wetnwild mermaid collection every which way- and I want to make it clear that I know these are not intended for the lips, so I don’t hold it against them that they don’t wear well there- it was super pretty while it lasted though! I hope this helps you decide what you’d like from this collection before you buy, or perhaps explains some issues you have, if any.
the Metallic Liquid Eyeshadows on the lips- so much fun!
I felt like a goth mermaid Brigitte Bardot!

Siren’s Jewel Liquid Catsuit lipstick is simply gorgeous!
Hi Guys & Dolls, Happy Wednesday!
This awesome-sauce makeup look is inspired by mermaids. Deeps blues, sea greens, and a striking pop of royal blurple to give the eyes not just beauty, but power! The playfulness of peachy lips and cheeks create a harmony with the aquatic color palette without going over the top. If you love this look please Like & Share it with your friends- I appreciate it so much ^_^ If you’re a fan of blues, greens and purples I know you’ll love this look; I want to see your recreations, so use what you have, switch it up and make it your own. Knock ’em dead! Please share them with me on instagram & twitter @vintageortacky
On a personal note, I’m kind of obsessed with Mermaids. I don’t mean the sweet Disney Princess type- although those are cool too. I am completely fascinated by the legendary mermaids sailors sang songs about- beautiful but terrifying creatures who would lure men to their watery graves. I grew up listening to and still love a lot of irish songs and sailor tunes and mermaids/the ocean/the railroad are featured in many of these drinking songs. If you’re interested in introducing yourself to the type of music, check out the Black Irish Band ^_^.
Heck yes this post contains affiliate links- thanks for shopping with me ^_^
A voice called me, from deep in the sea, “Dry your eyes my dear fishermen your ass belongs to me” – Cruel Mistress, Flogging Molly
Hello Guppies and Dolphins!
Today I bring you the Sea Queen. I’ve always been a little obsessed with the sea. I grew up listening to a lot of Celtic music (traditional, rock, Scot fusion, Irish punk, etc) and I love sailor songs. One that I drew a lot of inspiration for this look is Flogging Molly’s Cruel Mistress. The song is about him not getting over a girl on dry land and then setting out for the sea to get over her (it doesn’t work). Now the Sea, turbulent, cold and ruthless is his cruel mistress.
