Birchbox Limited Edition: Modern Mermaid Box Review
Birchbox has the best limited edition boxes in my opinion, and their latest Modern Mermaid Box is another great one!
(I took quite a few unboxing photos since their limited edition packaging is always amazing).
Birchbox kindly sent me the Modern Mermaid box to review.

The box comes with a card detailing each item included. (FYI – my box is missing the Atelier Cologne travel spray, so I won’t be able to review it, but I’ll count it toward the value since it should have been in the box).
Ruffian Nail Lacquer Endless Summer Collection – Value $26.50
I love these summery /aquatic metallic shades – and I’m a little obsessed with Sahara – the sand colored metallic on the left.
Anastasia Lash Genius Travel Size Value $10
Vasanti Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Electric Navy – FULL SIZE! Value $18
Normally I don’t get too excited about eye liner, but after trying this vasanti blue one, I think it may be my favorite item in the box! It does go on super smooth and vibrant, and I was able to smudge it to a level that I didn’t think looked too extreme but still made my eyes pop. I think blue-eyeliner will become my makeup staple for the summer! (And this lash genius product makes any mascara waterproof – I’m excited to try it!)
Captain Blankenship Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Spray – 2 oz Value $12
Coola LipLux SPF 30 Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $12
I love that this sea salt spray is made with natural and organic ingredients. I just tried it on my curly hair (which I didn’t expect to see any results on – and didn’t), but the scent is wonderful. It’s not beachy like I expected, but very natural. Next time I straighten my hair I’ll try it out! (I’ve already sampled this Coola lip balm before and love it, so I’m happy to have a new one for this summer!).
Stephanie Johnson Mirror – Value $22
This is one of those items that I wouldn’t pay full price for, but now that it is in my hands I absolutely love it.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $115 (Counting the non-pictured Travel Size perfume). I think it’s a great value, and I love every product I’ve sampled so far. I think I’m going to buy another box or two so that I have awesome gifts for upcoming summer birthdays! Did you get the Modern Mermaid box? What did you think of it?
