The mirror is truly of good quality. It only blows up to 5X, but it is enough to see to put on my makeup and pluck those awful hairs growing on my chin.
As the seasons change, it is now too dark in the morning for me to do my makeup - not enough natural light. Very happy with this mirror - the magnification and four light settings are perfect. My sides do not get hot as other reviewers had mentioned. My only wish is that there was an option to stand straight up instead of at an angle.
I am a middle age woman and I love this mirror! It's lightweight and just what I was looking for. The lighting and magnifying glass are just bright enough. Who wants a heavy mirror to lug around your home or salon? It's perfect! The fact that it is so lightweight, is why reviews say it looks cheap, I guess. The base is plastic, but, the mirror is larger than most. I don't need anything heavier, smaller or brighter. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a makeup mirror. I don't understand why anyone would buy this for a child, maybe a teenager 17 or 18, may appreciate the quality, but certainly not a 14 year old. I hope it holds up, based on the few negative reviews. Yes, I would definitely recommend for the Matured or Seasoned woman. Amazon has this same or similar mirror for over $150 bucks!! It is not worth $150. Get this Overstock, you will not be disappointed.
