To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a good mirror for magnification and light is good. However, it is very thick and heavy even though it is encased in plastic. I was hoping it would make a good purse mirror, but this is more suited to use on a counter top or take in luggage.
Update: I've had this for a year and a half now. My eyes are getting worse, and I travel a lot, so I have started taking this on all trips (in and outside the US). I don't check bags, and this mirror often gets my bag searched. I have started keeping it in an outside pocket so the security people can easily take a look without opening my whole bag or I remove it to put in a tray. :)
The batteries run out fairly quickly if you want the light to stay bright. I use this often, and it is a really good mirror for the price.
I love this mirror except for the color of the LEDs used. They are blue! Not good for applying makeup if you are using colors. Maybe for foundation only. Works fine for tweezing. I love the size and the mirrors, which are distortion-free.
There seems to be 2 models people are reviewing. One model has both mirrors lighting and 10x magnifier and another probably older model only has 1 light and 7x magnifier.
I bought the 10x model. It is difficult opening the bottom part of the mirror and the battery compartment which on this model is underneath the bottom and one large disc you need to tur opposed to the other model which is apparently on the top portion of the bottom section with 2 separate battery compartments which appears to be easier to open according to pictures in the reviews.
The 10x magnifier is great. The problem I have is with the regular mirror. It’s too small to get a full view of your face. And overall it is short so you either have to hold it up or put it on top of something to raise it higher (even with it extended).
I will use it for travel just because it’s compact and light so I will make it work for me.
Such a great price for this little mirror which I will use for travel. I tried it at home and I think it will do nicely. I had bought another one which was almost double the price at a nearby store and wanted to compare. The one I bought locally had much brighter lights and they were of a yellow hue whereas this one was white. It appears more like fluorescent lighting which I do not care for but the package says LED so I assume that is what it is. I imagine that once I am traveling it will work just fine and I won't notice that it isn't as bright. Have returned the other. In addition I received a very nice email from the seller inquiring as to my satisfaction w/ the product. Good customer service is highly important to me.
This mirror is exactly what I wanted to use during travel. Due to my poor eyesight, I need a well illuminated product. It is compact and does the job. I ordered this product for an upcoming trip. There was a delay in the shipping, so I ordered a second through PRIME and it arrived 2 days later as promised. The first one ordered actually arrived after I left for my trip. Upon contacting the seller about the first one (and the fact I didn't need two) their response was immediate and we worked together to resolve the matter quickly. Thank you!
This is a great little mirror. Very bright. Love that if extenders! Great little travel mirror. When compacted it measures about 3 in depth. Gave it only 4 stars because the switch to turn on light is stiff. Switch goes half way to turn on bottom light only then push it all the way to light both mirror. Truly love this mirror. Great buy.
