This type of mirror is often found in hotel bathrooms and those give barely adequate light, but this has about 50% of that illumination at its maximum setting and is a cold white, rather than warm tungsten tone. Even in total darkness the light doesn't have the power to see the face in any detail - it's truly hopeless and its illumination is totally negated by any other light in the room.
It requires 4 x AA batteries to power the totally ineffective output. Not recommended.
My original review below:
- good magnification with very little distortion
- pleasing blue-ish light (looks nicer than yellowish light)
- battery operated, so very portable
- adjustable light levels (turn the dial to make it brighter or dimmer)
- the led is non-replaceable, so when it goes, it's gone
- the light is fairly dim, so I can't imagine you'd ever want it set any lower than maximum brightness - which makes the adjustable aspect a bit irrelevant
Overall, seems reasonable quality. I never understand why lighted make-up mirrors are so expensive, but this one seems to be in line with other lit make-up mirrors of similar quality.
Unfortunately the light output isn't great and for the most part it looks good but does not illuminate one's face; this immediately takes away any advantages that battery power might offer (such as use in bathrooms and power cuts etc).
The stand is finished in a brushed stainless steel look and I find the design a little 'industrial'; for me the spun metal base is reminiscent of a morris minor hub cap and the rotary on/off dimmer switch is rather chunky and the whole thing lacks elegance. Of course that's a personal opinion and I'm sure many would disagree about the aesthetics. Overall, a good-quality mirror, but the poor light quality lets the mirror down.
The size is ideal for on top of chest of drawers, or even in a bathroom as it's not too large but it is big enough to see your face clearly and apply make up.
One side magnifies and one is true to size. The magnify shows plenty of detail so you can see all your pores very well etc - although I do prefer the true to size as the magnify shows up my flaws!
You need to add batteries for the illumination to work, then that enhances how well you can see and is better for applying make up in good light.
Unfortunately, like other reviewers, I was less impressed with the lack of light output - even adjusted to the highest level. At that price I'd expect better.
