I have bad vision, and it seems like I always have. I started wearing glasses in the 3rd grade, and still do. When I was younger, a quick check in the mirror was fine, but now that I'm older, I need more time to get ready, and the ability to really see the details. There's tweezing and plucking to be done, and older eyes take more attention to detail to look good. My best tool for these tasks? A magnifying mirror!
The Mirrorvana mirror exudes quality from the get-go. It arrives nestled in 3 layers of protective styrofoam that are custom-fit for the mirror. The base and stand are in two sturdy pieces that easily and quickly screw together with no need for any special tools.
For years, I've had a small mirror attached to my wall. In my tiny bathroom, it's the only place for it. This stand-up mirror from Mirrorvana gives it a run for its money, though. For starters, you can use it without the base as a hand mirror, though the base is felted and weighted appropriately to support the mirror. With the base, the mirror stands 14 inches tall, and weighs a little over a pound.
Cheaper mirrors suffer when they are moved around too much, but this mirror is designed to be portable and to be moved and positioned as much as you want. Adjust it to the perfect angle to sit on your dressing table, and flip it over to use the 10x magnifying mirror when you need to do really detailed grooming. My chin would be a straggly bush, and my brows a hairy mess without my magnifying mirror!
When I go visit my parents for the holidays, I'm taking my Mirrorvana with me to use in my parents guest bathroom. I usually end up having to use a makeup compact to do my makeup - and that means I'm doing everything with one hand. It's going to be so much easier with this mirror - and because I can pack it flat in its box, I know that it will arrive there in one piece, the same as it arrived at my door from Amazon.
Who knows where my eyeliner would be without my Mirrorvana magnifying mirror?
