I think a good makeup mirror must have three qualities: (1) Two magnification options - x1 and x7 to 10. (2) It should also have appropriate lighting options, not just ultra-dim. (3) It should be appropriate for your needs (swivel side-to-side? what about up and down? Oval or circle or square?)
This mirror beat out every other mirror on the market for me (in my price range). I needed to stay under $50, and this was the only mirror in that price range that met all three of my requirements.
This mirror........(1) Has two very appropriate magnification options (one side is x1 and the other is x7 or something). (2) It only has two light settings: on and off. It does, however, have relatively bright "on" setting. I've owned many makeup mirrors and I would equate this brightness with the "office" light setting. Not sunlight, but not dim lighting either. (3) This mirror is very attractive aesthetically. It has a classy silver finish, which I don't think smudges too easily. It also fits my oval face perfectly.
I would recommend this makeup mirror to a friend.
This mirror was exactly what i hoped for, it's easy to use and the light is bright enough for precise makeup but not so bright as to distort your end result. And like they said it really does go with any decor!

Nice size for top of dresser. Light-up feature is great especially in a room with poor lighting. I purchased this for my college daughter and she liked it so much I got another one for my high school daughter.
I had been wanting a lighted oval mirror that magnifies for a long time. Especially after I had to start wearing bi-focals to tweeze my eyebrows and get rid of the unwanted facial hair. Previous purchases from OS.com and price weighed a lot on my decision to purchase from this site. I am very pleased with my purchase of this mirror.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The lighting is perfect. Not too bright with a soft glow but enough to see without the glare. This mirror is not too heavy.
I purchased this doubled-sided, lighted makeup mirror for my nephew's wife for Christmas two years ago. She had a two-sided, lighted makeup mirror on a stand was on her Christmas list. She wears contacts and wanted a mirror with the magnification to put on her makeup before inserting her lenses. When I started looking for it, my first stop was the O and she was marked off my list! This had all the features she wanted and she has told me how much she has enjoyed it since receiving it. The mirror looks nice on her bathroom counter and doesn't take up a lot of space.
We got this for my husband, and he is perfectly happy with the mirror. At times when he's not wearing his glasses, he has no problem since it lights up and he can use the magnification. It is well-built, nice weight and very sturdy.
I ordered this mirror to replace my old Conair oval double-sided mirror. I was disappointed that the mirror is smaller than my old one, and that the switch is a toggle on the cord instead of on the base. I considered sending it back. But after using it, I like it better than I'd expected. Although the mirror is smaller and the switch isn't as convenient, the magnification, lighting, and clarity are excellent. I really appreciate those qualities, and I'm getting used to the smaller size. I'm happy with this mirror.

The instruction manual says 120V only. However with the correct lightbulb and a plug adapter I don't see why it wouldn't. The book calls it a "RP-BE151T" bulb for the 120V version.casey32 on Feb 19, 2013
