Birchbox Breakdown

The mermaid is an elusive (okay, mythical) creature, her beauty glimpsed only fleetingly by swimmers and sailors. With this mermaid-inspired iridescent compact, we landlubbers can capture a bit of that shimmering allure. Plus, having a mirror always on hand, we’ll have no trouble catching a glimpse of our own gorgeousness (or doing a quick touchup when we need to).

How it Works

This colorful compact has a slim silhouette, and its mirror is large enough to show your entire face. The case snaps shut to keep the mirror scuff-free.

How to Use

Toss in your bag, desk drawer, or anywhere you’d like for easy touchups.

Odd coloration

Definitely note that the description says "Colors may vary." My compact has this odd snakeskin-like coloration that I'm not the biggest fan of... I wish it looked more like the picture! Other than that, it is a decent sized compact, wish the mirror inside was a tiny bit larger with less border, but I love the Stephanie Johnson compass logo on the inside! Easy to pop in your purse.

A lovely mirror for a large handbag or travel case
Purchased

This mirror has turned out to be a bit bigger than I expected but it will be great for travel especially in the car. I love the hide with the iridescent finish in fact I might get two more for holiday gifts. I think the two girls who take care of me at the doctor's offices would really like one of these for their Christmas gift since they are always on the run and only have a moment to touch up lipsticks. It is the perfect size for getting your whole face and hair do into the visage. So for that reason alone it's worth having in the car or air for taking a last look and touchup before arrival.

Pretty

I got this in the limited edition box. I think this mirror is really cute, just a little pricey for it on its own.

Travel Mirror

This little mirror is perfect to drop in your bag. It's fashionable and fun. I always end up being out and feeling like I need to check in a mirror to see if my eyeliner is smudged, or most likely to see if I have any food in my teeth, and now that I have this mirror, I can do just that. I'll probably drop it in my carry-on so I can make sure I look alright after a long flight.

Cute

This was a nice little mirror. The scales are cutely decorative, but it only has one mirror on the inside. What I really like about it, though, is that it's thin enough to go into one of my pockets.

Unique

This mirror is exceptionally unique and perfect for summer. It would be perfect in a beach bag. I personally prefer a compact that snaps shut so no debris gets inside, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Cute Little Compact Mirror!

I'm always wanting to touch-up my makeup "on the run"; this little mirrored compact does just the trick! It's small, lightweight, but beautifully detailed for the "mermaid lover" in all of us - resembling shining fish (or mermaid!)
