BIRCHBOX has decided for the month of June to release a whimsical limited edition box and has given it the name Modern Mermaid. The Modern Mermaid box, was my first time purchasing a limited edition box from Birchbox and it was a great experience.The Modern Mermaid box is curated around mermaids and a beach theme.This limited edition indulgence arrived with an overload of beauty products centered around beach fun all the while celebrating mermaids.
Product 1 Stephanie Johnson Mermaid Mirror
Retail value $22.00
The first product that drew my attention was this fabulous Stephanie Johnson mirror created to mimic a mermaids fin. I love the color changing effect of the outer case of the mirror. This mirror is not only adorable, but very chic and fits nicely into most handbags.
Product 2 Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat
Retail value $21.00
The next product that captured my attention was Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat. I am a huge fan of Anastasia’s products,and this particular product I am interested in testing it out over the Summer. Lash Genius states that this product is paraben-free, and has a nondrying formula. The product is to be used over your mascara and then supposedly your mascara becomes waterproof.
Product 3 Coola Liplux SPF 30 Original Formula
Retail value $12.00
The Coola Liplux SPF 30 original formula was a full-size item.I have fallen for this product. The scent is amazing Liplux lip balm smells similar to berries. I also like that Coola has formulated their lip balm with a high SPF 30. So many times we tend to somewhat remember to apply sunscreen/sunblock, but tend to leave our lips bare.
Retail value $25.00
The scent of Atelier Cologne Cédrat Enivrant Cologne Absolue makes for the perfect recipe for fun for the Summer season. The scent is fresh, alluring, and at the same time strong, but not strong in the way of run for your dear life perfume overload, but strong in the way that it controls the setting and almost temps the occasion with class and seduction.
Sample 5 Ruffian Endless Summer Collection
Retail value $26.50
The Endless Summer Collection by Ruffian was the first product during the BirchBox Modern Mermaid reveal that commanded my attention. I fell in love with all the colors in the collection.This collection by Ruffian definitely suits the mermaid/beach theme of the box. I love these polishes my favorite so far is Endless Love. The colors are extremely pigmented and dry quickly. I only had to apply one coat. I had received a Ruffian nail polish before in one of my regular BirchBox boxes, but by far this is my favorite collection from Ruffian.
Endless Love Blue Lagoon
Retail value $24.00
Captain Blankenship Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Spray is stated to be an all-natural spray and contains organic rose oil. I personally like the scent of this sea salt spray the scent smells exactly like rosewater and fresh roses in my opinion.
Retail value $18.00
This was a full-size eye pencil from Vasanti.There is not enough good things I can say about Vasanti Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Electric Navy. The color is beautiful the eyeliner applies with ease and is extremely pigment. Besides from the color and consistency being amazing Vasanti helps make the process of applying their product even easier by adding a built-in pencil sharpener and a great blender tip. And if that did not sell one the product claims to give the wearer up to eight hours waterproof wear.
So, that was the BirchBox Modern Mermaid Limited Edition box that was release for June. I definitely fell for this box, and every product featured in the box. I will not just put these products to use for the Summer, but for all seasons. The products were all high quality and were well presented. I love how BirchBox, paid close attention to every detail of this box right down to the content card. The Modern Mermaid box was definitely whimsical, fun, and playful, and if you want to test the waters of this Modern Mermaid box the time is now to set sail, because BirchBox still has the Modern Mermaid limited edition boxes available for the bewitched traveler.
