This is a nice little mirror, great for carrying in your purse or backpack. I can't count how many times I've been out and about and gotten an eyelash in my eye, or needed to check my lipstick/makeup, only to be without a mirror. Those little mirrors that come with makeup compacts are hardly adequate, either. This mirror has both normal and magnifying sides--fantastic for all applications. The compact is nice and unobtrusive, it's slim, stays shut well, and is lightweight. I hate a heavy purse, and this doesn't contribute to that problem. I love it!
I am pleasantly surprised. This mirror is a little bigger than the average compact mirror. If you look at the image it's about the size of a juice glass. It appears to be nicely made and is flat which is great for a purse or travel. Good buy - I recommend.
Great quality for the price. I find it to be super useful in my purse. It's a little big for storing in the bag but it's great when you have to use it. It's lightweight and I love the color, matches everything in my bag. Would recommend.
This is the perfect travel mirror. I needed a decent size magnifying mirror as most hotels don't have any (or they are only 2X or 3X). The hinge is "tight" so it stays open at whatever angle I select. I just have to elevate it like onto a tissue box so I don't have to hunch over when curling my eyelashes.
This is pretty useless to me. I just had cataract surgery and can no longer see close up- will probably need a tote bag full of different strengths of readers. But I don't know how to put on makeup anymore and hoped this would help-not only is it too high of a magnification but I look like a monster! Goodness- I won't be using this but as I am disabled it's just too hard for me to get to the post office to return. So I am out all the money I spent. It's depressing. It's a nice product and if the mirror was maybe 5x or 6x ( I don't know as I've not been in this situation before) it would be great. If anyone knows of a good product and what magnification I need I would be grateful. If the seller has one in this brand that is less strong, please let me know. I'm upset I can't return it. I would have to hire someone to go to the post office and that would cost almost as much as the mirror.
I love that this mirror is very slim but large! I can't see very well and when I'm at work and need to fix my contacts or my makeup without my glasses, it's annoying to have a tiny mirror that you can only see one eye because it's so small. I love the dual mirrors and the fact that I can see my whole face if needed.. I'll never travel without it.
This mirror is a compact-type in that it opens like a make-up compact but it's not really compact in terms of size. Neither huge nor tiny and it's not overly lightweight. If you're thinking of putting it in a small purse, please check the measurements listed for this mirror. It seems fairly well made. The tracking said it was supposed to arrive tomorrow but I received it today! It comes inside its own little box suitable for wrapping and would make a nice gift. The 10 X magnification is not distorted. To view the 10 X, you should hold it close up in front of you and move the mirror slowly away until your focus is clear. That is your viewing point for the 10 X. The other side of the mirror is regular magnification. I would purchase this mirror again.
As other reviews have mentioned, the 10x mirror is useless. The compact itself is good quality, a great size, and would have been well worth the price paid if I was able to use the 10x mirror. I'm not sure if it was defective, but only when I held it no more than 2 inches away from my face and squinted would even a tiny area of my face show clearly. Then it would only be a very small area, which was not helpful at all. If I didn't squint everything was blurry, almost like double vision. No way I can apply makeup with one eye open and a mirror inches from my face. Returned.
