DuWop Isla Sirena Collection Where Are You?

On Stranger Tides flies into theaters this weekend much to my delight. I’m quite eager to see what adventures Captain Jack gets into this time! Well, I’m actually eager to see what the other Captain Jack gets into as well this Summer but I’ll settle for the Johnny Depp version first.

As you know from a very early post I did, DuWop has some sort of collaborated effort that was tied in with the film’s release. Sadly, Sephora discontinued carrying a majority of the DuWop catalog outside of Lip Venom…can you say WTH? Why? I’m still puzzling over that. DuWop has made some crummy business decisions in the past (Hellllllllo Twilight Beauty!) but actually yanking the line from Sephora, well, I’m hoping it wasn’t by choice.

This year we failed to see a Spring Collection from the brand which I hope means that they are gearing up for the big release of the Isla Sirena Collection but I am worried.

Moral support please?

With Pirates releasing on May 20th…what are they waiting for to get this collection onto to the table? Might they actually launch it Friday? It would be pointless and a bad marketing choice to launch AFTER the movie release dontcha think?

It seems one UK beauty site has been saying they’ll be stocking it since April but they still having a “Coming Soon” banner posted…however, the good news is you can actually add items to your cart so perhaps they are indeed sure of its arrival.

Let’s take a peek at better images and details for the DuWop Isla Sirena Collection and pray we get it very soon.

Simple Beauty, a UK shop, has the entire collection available however as mentioned above it does show as Coming Soon but they still allow you to pre-order it. Believe me, I was tempted but not so tempted I won’t wait for our release because the sterling versus USD price jack is not appealing in the least plus I’m unsure at this point if Simple Beauty ships to the US anyway.

Here’s a peek of what the shop lists as coming soon!

DuWop Isla Sirena Collection Treasure Map Palette £35.00
Chart your course to mythical beauty with this seductive palette of resplendent glosses, dimensional eye shadows and luxurious gel eyeliners.

This innovative palette is designed featuring the actual map from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides used to navigate to the Fountain of Youth.

Complete with nine eye shadows, three lip tints, three gel eyeliners and three brush applicators, this palette allows you to immerse yourself in a single realm of color or venture between Isla Sirena’s three distinct worlds of mermaids, pirates and treasure for endless possibilities.

DuWop Isla Sirena Collection Treasure, Pirate, and Mermaid Antique Sea Shell Cheeks Compact £18.00
The Mermaids in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger tides are absolutely beautiful, but equally mysterious! The shimmering shades, combined with strong sea hues enables you to recreate a look of mermaid chic.


  • Rubellite (Subtle peach blush with golden highlighter)
  • Luz de Luna (Fresh rose blush with champagne highlighter)
  • Rogue Sun (Kissed bronze blush with soft amber highlighter)

DuWop Isla Sirena Collection Treasure, Pirate, and Mermaid Antique Sea Shell Lip Compact £18.00
The Antique golden shell lip compacts are handbag handy and look just as beautiful on as they do in their packaging. The lip compacts come in three gorgeous shades to chose from for your lips this summer and each contain a hydrating matte finish lipstick and ultra shiny gloss in coordinating shades.


  • Serenade: The shimmering shades, combined with strong sea hues enables you to recreate a look of mermaid chic. The rich coral will leave your lips striking and bold whilst the shimmering gloss adds a touch of mystery!
  • Thief: You can expect rich, warm tones from the Pirate range. The lip compact is a combination of sophisticated yet a modern shade of mauve cream lipstick with a rich topaz gloss overlay.
  • Treasure: Relic: You can expect rich, warm tones from the Treasure range. The lip compact is a combination of inviting deep red cream lipstick with shimmering gold gloss overlay. The dazzling jewel tones will look gorgeous on all skin tones.

DuWop Isla Sirena Collection Treasure, Pirate, and Mermaid Antique Sea Shell Eye Compact £18.00
The Mermaids in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger tides are absolutely beautiful, but equally mysterious! The shimmering shades, combined with strong sea hues enables you to recreate a look of mermaid chic.


  • Greedy: Deep amethyst and burnished emerald green. wouldn’t be the same without treasure, and neither would our collection. The eyes are striking eye shadows that can be worn separately or blended for your own unique look
  • Mystic Waters: Iridescent coral and shimmering aquamarine.
  • Pirate: Vanquish; Smouldering black with glimmering gold.

DuWop Isla Sirena Collection Caribbean Iced Teas £15.00
Iced Teas are a refreshing lip treatment with exotic flavor, the slightest hint of color, and a delicious scent and flavor. Each Iced Tea also packs sun protection at 15 SPF. They are an indulgent treat without being too naughty!

The hydrating properties of this product come from a combination of soothing ingredients such as jojoba oil, aloe, and green tea extract that will leave lips feeling refreshed and moisturized.


  • Mint Mojito (refreshing and light, translucent teal)
  • Pink Grape Fruit (sweet and bright, hint of citrus pink)
  • Butter Rum (rich and smooth, translucent amber with gold sparkle)

Going over the price line you can see that the Iced Teas are £15 versus our price tag of $19 so you’re looking at a jump of $5 or so. I imagine the palette price will be considerably cheaper as well if and when the collection releases here…If worst comes to worst I’ll consider ordering from the UK if we fail to see the collection in the US but let’s hope we don’t run into that issue.

Overall, the collection is fun. It does look like some of the shades particularly the lip products seem to be dupes for some shades that were released in the Twilight Beauty range…dontcha get the vibe a little or is it me?

I guess it’s basically the Pirate theme that’s the main attraction and novelty here.

UK’ers can go ahead and start pre-booking the collection from already. The rest of us have to hope that when Friday comes around that Isla Sirena will coincide with the movie’s release.

Here’s to hoping kids!

If and when it does launch will you haul?

Anything striking you as a must have here?

    Those shells are very attractive to me. I hope they come to the US!

  • Musebeliever

    I LOVE THE PALETTE !!!!! I want one ! *o*
    Saving time.

    I just bought the OPI pirate mini-collection… (beautiful colours but tough applications ! )
    I’ll have a piratey summer ! *o*

    • the Muse

      Muse LOVING the opi collection ;-D too bad I’m not a nail girl!

      • Musebeliever

        Not really a nail girl either ! I didn’t put nail polish for ages ! It’s just the pirate effect (I do need help !).

        Well O cantacted simplebeauty. Aparently they are waiting for the instructions of Disney before releasing te palette. So the Palette should be in stock (alive and kicking) and they are just waiting for the sign to release.
        The more I look this palette the more I love it. I’ll probably just have it even with the 10£ extra for delivery.

        • Shari

          Unfortunately they won’t ship to Canada 🙁 probably some marketing restriction from either Duwop or Disney.

  • Lorraine ER

    The blush/highlighter duos are calling me with their siren song! I love the shell compact design too, it’s so fun & unique 😀 If they were available at Sephora I know I’d pick them up but if I have to make an order online someplace else I’ll probably skip…too bad!

    • the Muse

      Lorraine I sure hope DuWop actually starts carrying the line, wonder if they’ll launch a website separately from the main portal like they did with Twilight?

  • Erin

    I want this collection so bad! I have been stalking the DuWop site for two months already and I am about to rip my hair out. I love the eye and the cheek compacts!

    • the Muse

      erin same here since like January or something when I first head about it? The movie releases Friday what are they waiting for?!

  • Tammie

    I wished those Iced Teas were good products 🙁 They are SO cute, but I don’t want to waste my money.

    • the Muse

      Agreed Tammie! The one I tried wasn’t so fab ;-( needs more moisture!

  • Sydney

    The shell packaging of the compacts is the coolest packaging I’ve seen from any brand in a long time!

  • Shari

    Apparently it’s being released in Canada in July. WTH? The movie’s out in 4 days, so I have no idea why the delay. Maybe the release in the US is also delayed that long. I’m still a little panicked about where I’m going to purchase the collection. My local Shoppers Drug Mart is checking with the district manager to see if they can order it in for me. The closest SDM that sells DuWop is 2 hours away and of course Sephora has stopped carrying it and won’t ship to Canada….still a little panicked I won’t get my hands on this!!!

    • the Muse

      shari at least you have a date but wth in July. is Canadian release of the film the same date? Seriously what a way to killing the marketing on this as the movie would generate sales like crazy if released the same day or before…surreal. I still haven’t a clue when the date is here but tried contacting duwop’s press team without reply as of yet :-/

      • Shari

        Really bad marketing decision; everyone’s so pumped for the movie release on Friday…I’m going to the midnight show Thursday night (12:01 Friday :)) By July, all the hype will be gone. I’ve tried contact duwop about 4 times and never received a response.

        • the Muse

          shari that would be utterly bogus no one is going to give a damn about PotC as they’ll be on to the next Summer blockbuster..I HOPE they will surprise on Friday with the collection!

  • Soo

    I’ve never tried anything by DuWop. the packaging of these products look lovely though. I like the look of the palette

  • Chloe

    I would gladly trade the collection for my own Captain Jack Harkness.

    Just sayin’! XD

    • the Muse

      I’m not arguing chloe. they can have the collection if we can get Jack…!

  • Lisa

    Just called duwop customer service. Said it will be on the US Duwop website by the end of the month! Yipee! Not that I really need any of this. But I love me some beach themed makeup : )

    • the Muse

      lisa brilliant! I kept emailing but didn’t get a reply ;D!

  • Majick

    Oh dear… I smell trouble on the horizon. I’m loving the palette but if I had to pick one thing it would be the shell in a lippie so I could keep playing with it all day. We’ll have to see if I bite when it’s finally released.

  • Annabella Freeman

    I’m gagging for those Carribean Iced Teas!!!!

  • Lex

    The shell packaging is so cute! I might actually consider buying the palette if it was an Urban Decay BoS. (Which makes me wonder why Urban Decay isn’t doing this line, seeing as they did Alice in Wonderland, which was Disney.)

    • the Muse

      lex i’d be all over a pirate themed anything from UD ;D!

  • Samantha

    That makeup looks pretty cheap to me. I’m sure Sephora kicked duwop out, plus they never had enough stock in any stores.
    I’m super excited about the OPI pirates line!!! I think I will pass with the makeup.

  • JCz

    omigod I want the compacts – the shells are sooo cute!
    When I was a kid, I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up. Unfortunately that didn’t work out…

    • the Muse

      jcz I had that same exact career ambition myself, not sure what happened…! 😀

    • Majick

      Well when I get in the water…(wink). ha ha I’ll have to send you a pic sometime.
