Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Four adjustable light setting for day, office, evening and home. 1x and 5x magnification. one year warranty. Folds flat for travel or storage. Adjustable back stand. Electrical cord built in so you don't need to rely on batteries. Center mirror swivels horizontally
1x and 5x manual zoom adjustments are easy to use
The zoom feature is very useful for up-close makeup. I love the side panels; they really provide a 180-degree view of my makeup in the morning.
There’s an adjustable stand designed to provide multiple viewing angles. The mirror is two-sided and sports a tri-fold design for that perfect panoramic view.
With its excellent zooming feature, you can check every detail of your makeup and hair. If you want to apply makeup at a hard to see area, you can get the advantage of 5X magnification.
It features a built-in electrical outlet that makes everything easier. It has a perfect white finish that is very beautiful and attractive.
The best feature of the model, though, is the "choose a lighting scheme" option. Most mirrors have one light setting that mimics natural daylight (to varying degrees of success). This has four different lighting schemes, and you can experiment and see how different lighting schemes affect your makeup.

What reviewers didn't like

Users have said that the slider for changing the light settings doesn't work very well
Smaller in size
However, it’s just way too bulky and poorly designed to recommend. It feels outdated and is difficult to adjust, and the lighting isn't effective or bright enough on any setting.
Lightweight plastic
