First off the case came in a large box, surrounded by foam. Once opened, I observered a well constructed suitcase, with No imperfections! I just returned from a two week business trip and can tell you I found this to be the perfect travel make up desk :) especially if you are a junkie like myself. And with Sharing One bathroom with a fellow female co-worker this was a life savor. There are three negative aspecs to this, but are of no concern to me: 1. replace the bulbs that comes with it, they are too dim. 2. the mirror is a bit far off so if you want to do precise eye make up your going to need maybe a travel mirror 3. HEAVY. I estimate 50lbs easy. As stated this is well made, Nothing cheap about this. I am not sure but it seems a little heavy to get by on the aircraft without paying extra $$$. Especially when you factor in adding your makeup! Pleasant surprise was the "leather" lining inside the box. I can't say enough that the pictures did this no justice. the legs are ajustible and are easy to work and hold securely I had No issues. Also like most women (not sexist just we usually dont care) I really didnt pay attention to the dimensions. Its a little larger than your average carry on but smaller than a larger suitcase if that makes any sense. Either way you will not be disappointed I LOVE this item :)
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.
