To keep a few other essentials midday refresher at hand—lipstick and a perfume roller, say—stash the Stephanie Johnson Mini Pouch nearby.

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 to Use

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

Adorable!

I am obsessed with this mirror. It's so adorable and convenient. The color is true to what you see on the picture. I was very impressed by the product as a whole even if I do think I paid a little more than I should have for a mirror. However, I get tons of compliments on it so maybe it's worth it.

So perfect

I got this mirror in the modern mermaid box which I received as a gift from my sister-in-law. I'm obsessed with mermaid themed things so the box was perfect and I love having this little mirror stashed in my purse. So different and cute!

Adorable!

I love this mirror, it's one of the main products that attracted me to the mermaid limited edition box. It's large and lightweight, it will be super easy to find this mirror in my large purse! The snap closure appears to be really secure. It's super shimmery and very mermaidish! I love this item so much that I actually bought a second limited edition box for my daughter so we can have matching items! Thanks Birchbox!

Think VERY pink

All of the sample compacts come in different colors, so mine is just a very loud one-off, but the more I look at it, I would have preferred a blue or green tone more in keeping with the beachy, watery theme of the box. It's a very, very loud pink. The snap closes firmly, so I'm not worried about it popping open in my purse and getting scratched, and I appreciated the protective film that came on the mirror itself, though it left a gummy film behind that was a bit hard to clean off. A more mature color palate would have been appreciated overall, though. It's excessively, shimmeringly, alarmingly, eye-poppingly PINK. The kind of thing your coworkers suspect your borrowed from your tweenaged daughter. The green that's shown in the product blurb is much more appealing - and appropriate, once you're my (admittedly older) age.

Nice compact!
Purchased

Perfect for any mermaid lover! A bit pricey but I used my birchbox points so didn't pay a dime! It would be nice if it had a zoomed in mirror on one side.

Cute for a young girl

I think that I will hang on to this to give to one of my daughters... Too young for me, but I will just regift to someone who can appreciate it!

Great compact mirror

This is the cutest compact on the beach. The iridescent covering is very attractive. The size is perfect for your beach bag and comes in handy with make up touch ups.

Super Cute and Compact

I absolutely love this mirror. It is adorable and will be perfect for that touch up on the go. I also love that the mirror is protected and that it snaps closed. This will ensure that it doesn't get broken in my purse.

Beautiful Pocket Mirror

This is a beautiful mirror for your purse. It does look like something a mermaid should have! It was a nice addition to the Modern Mermaid box and pulled the theme together perfectly!
