I have trouble seeing without my glasses when putting my makeup on each morning. This is my fourth or fifth lighted makeup mirror with 10x on one side and no magnification on the other side. This one has the largest mirror surface and works very well. I hope I don't break this one! This mirror is also good for plucking eyebrows and those odd facial hairs that are either dark, too long, or rigid like guys' whiskers! The only complaint I have about the mirror is it could be taller, however, I've had taller mirrors and smaller mirror surface for viewing on other mirrors I've owned, and I rather have shorter and more surface, than taller and smaller surface. Definitely a great purchase decision.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Good representation, except impossible to know how the mirror turns on/off. Asked Overstock.com location of on/off switch and found out it is on the base and not the cord. Excellent location and works well.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is excellent and well made, lighting is perfect.
The mirror is nice looking and seems good quality. The problem I had is the light is not nearly bright enough even on the highest setting. It also fogged up quickly when I was plucking my eyebrows. The optional battery/powercord feature was very nice in theory, except this mirror is far too big to actually travel with. Overall, not worth the high price tag when you can get a similar thing for half the price.
The magnification 10X is great. However, this mirror is so large in height and width due to the large chrome base. The light, which is adjustable is very dim, even at it's brightest setting. The quality of the product is fine (mirror has no waves, heavy chrome base, looks expensive) but I would have preferred the same size mirror with a smaller base.
Spent a little more for this mirror and so glad I did! Large mirror and super 10x magnification have helped with my 50s eyesight...all the stray eyebrow hairs are gone!!! The light has a low to bright knob that is fabulous. Have been getting lots of compliments since using this makeup mirror. Couldn't be happier with my purchase :))
I was looking for a makeup mirror that is a great quality but very affordable. Luckily, I came across this mirror. It was a perfect mirror to use whenever I am doing my makeup since it has a large mirror surface, stand and comes with a LED light. It can be plugged in with an AC adapter or use with batteries. Either way, it worked wonderfully.
It looks good. Can be plugged in or will run off batteries. The light is not much use at all. The light is dim and it flickers if you durn the dimmer up past halfway.. If I had seen this in a store I would not have paid that much for a mirror with no useful light.
I purchased this for my daughter and she loves it. She tells me the light is good and the mirror is high quality. I was concerned the height might not work for her but she feels it is perfect. She had a makeup mirror that was on a stand(like you see so many of them), but she likes this design much better.
