My search for a Vanity Mirror

I have very bad lighting in my bedroom which becomes a problem when  applying makeup. Like most girls, I was lusting over the Hollywood Girl Vanity set but I have a vintage vanity set that has a sentimental value. Therefore, I do not want to get rid of it or take it apart.

The Simple Human Mirror ended my long search. Yes, it is not exactly what I had in mind its even better. It is a 5x magnification one sided mirror. It gives natural light, has a sensor that turns the light on when you are in front of it and automatically turns off when you step away from it. It is cordless, charges using a USB cable. There is ring light around the handle that turns red indicating it is time to charge and while it’s charging it blinks green. Once it is fully charge it turns to a solid green.

The makers of this mirror claim the charge lasts about 5 weeks and based on other reviews and my experience with it, you will find yourself charging it around every 2 weeks for a couple of hours (It does vary depending on the daily time use). Since it is a mirror with 5x magnification it will provide you the ability to see every single beautiful imperfection so keep that in mind. On the other hand, it allows you to get a more detailed, true to color makeup application.
This mirror can be purchased in Amazon, Simple Human.com and Bed Bath and Beyond. I bought mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, retail price is $200.00 I used a 20% off coupon towards this purchased (the store sends you a 20% off coupon just by submitting your email address).

Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and feel much more confident with my makeup application.

  Are you familiar with the Simple Human Mirrors? What mirror do you use for makeup application?
