Monday July 28 2014
Awhile back, I received an email from Birchbox about their Limited Edition Modern Mermaid box and while I’m all about mermaid items, I didn’t want to spend $44. More recently, a reader shared a link to said box on my Facebook timeline which got me thinking about it again. Therefore, when I got a 30% off code for having been a subscriber for 30 boxes, I knew exactly how to use it!
How cute is this packaging?! I’m absolutely keeping both the “Birchbox” and the outer box for storing beauty products in.
I love the idea of taking beauty cues from mermaids during the summer (and all year round.) Plus, I’m going to the beach in 2 weeks so I’ll be sure to incorporate these items into my vacation routine.
Let’s start with the best item in this box, the Stephanie Johnson Mermaid Mirror.
I’m in love with this iridescent compact! It was designed exclusively for Birchbox and is now in my purse every single day.
Look at how the pretty colors shift. Gosh, I love iridescent products.
I’m also really excited to have this sample of Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat. This can be applied over any mascara to make it waterproof. Too Faced Better Than Sex with a waterproof topcoat, it’s like my prayers have been answered!!
Atelier Cologne’s Cedrat Enivart contains scents of citrus and lime with Moroccan cedrant, juniper, and mint. It’s not my favorite, but I can see this being a good travel spray for when I’m at the beach or strolling the boardwalk and don’t want to smell like sweat, sunscreen, or a strong fragrance.
Inside a little black box, were 3 Ruffian Nail Lacquer samples. I love this pinky purple color called Endless Love.
This sandy nude shade is called Sahara.
This pretty blue ocean color is named Blue Lagoon.
Coola Liplux SPF 30 Sport may not be the most exciting product, but it’s full-sized and very practical. This is for sure going in my beach bag because I do not want dry, sunburnt lips.
Of course a sea siren inspired box would not be complete without a beach wave hair product like Davines This Is a Sea Salt spray. I’ve used similar products from various brands and was still really impressed with this one. I scrunched it on my wet hair and ended up with great waves that lasted all day. It smells nice too!
Last but certainly not least, this box contained a fabulous eyeliner, Vasanti’s Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Electric Navy.
It’s a bold, beautiful shade of blue that is waterproof. I had a difficult time getting the swatch off my hand.
Additionally, this eye pencil has it’s very own sharpener on one end and a smudge sponge on the other.
Overall Thoughts: I love mermaids and only paid $30.80, so I think it was worth it. The eyeliner and lip balm are full-sized, the compact is beautiful and limited edition. The other samples are products I like and will absolutely use. Thanks for offering this amazing Limited Edition Modern Mermaid box, Birchbox!
