We'll admit that, with all the iridescent highlighters, horn-inspired makeup brushes, 3-D manicures, and sparkly lip gloss launches these last six months, the unicorn beauty trend did become a bit overwhelming, even for us. The fad was (and probably still will be) cool, but we're calling it: Mermaid products are going to be the next big thing. Not only is the idea equally magical, but textured, Ariel-inspired beach waves, sea blue lipsticks, and aquamarine and glitter shadows also just sound dreamy.
Now, one brand is bringing the trend closer than ever with its launch of mermaid-inspired makeup brushes, and they are so much cuter than we ever could have imagined. (Even Ursula would approve.)
Mermaid Salon is the online retailer behind the makeup brushes. Unlike the usual array you might find at Sephora or Ulta, these iterations are short, thick, and adorned with chrome fish scales that look like they are straight from the ocean. The brushes are multi-purpose; you can use it to blend in your contour, your powder foundation, or as your highlighting brush. And they come in three colors — matte black, chrome silver, and rose gold — so you can pick your mermaid aesthetic. Even better? The brushes are completely vegan.
While the brushes are not for sale quite yet, you can pre-order them starting now for just $16 each. And if that seems steep — which it shouldn't, considering most quality makeup brushes will set you back around $20 — every single order will come with a free Velvet Matte Lipstick, which is worth $22 alone. Plus, if you’re interested in expanding your mermaid beauty aesthetic even more, the same brand also makes a brush set encased inside a holographic clam shell case. Because the only thing better than the mermaid trend is the mermaid trend with subtle hints of unicorn in there, too.
Mermaid Salon Chubby Mermaid Carve And Contour Paddle Brush, $16, available at Mermaid Salon.
