Best Portable Makeup Mirror – EASEHOLD | Rechargeable Lighted Makeup Mirror

easehold-rechargeable-lighted-makeup-mirror

Specification

  • Product Dimension: 12.5″L x 6.3″W
  • Shape: Round
  • Frame Material: Plastic
  • Lighting: 3 lighting modes
  • Mounting Type: Tabletop mount

Description

Get the best out of EASEHOLD’s portability with Rechargeable Lighted Makeup Mirror. Charge it up once and be able to use it around the house even without the stand!

Features

One mirror for all occasions: 3 different light settings suitable for all occasions.

Long-lasting charge: get up to 450 minutes of use with one full charge.

Detachable: use it around the house with its detachable magnified mirror and base, with the lights on.

How to use

This is a pretty basic product. After charging up to full, which could take around 3 to 4 hours, you are able to do without the stand for 450 minutes. The stand is attached with a simple twist to secure it. Attach the suction magnified mirror to touch up your lips and eye makeup. The light settings are in the bottom middle of the mirror. Long press the power button to adjust the brightness of the lights and the other button to switch between the different lighting.

Expert Verdict

Portability is never an issue when you have the Rechargeable Lighted Makeup Mirror by EASEHOLD. The charge lasts for a really, really long time so you won’t have to worry about it for a while. The removable base and suction magnified mirror are just great for people with bad eyesight or who need a closer at your lips and eyes. It could get a bit awkward to hold the mirror by the stand but the fact that it is lightweight ensures that your hand won’t be tired from using it. The only downside is the lights. It is not really as bright as you would like it to be, which is probably why it lasts for so long under a single charge. The suction magnified mirror is hard to apply over the mirror as it needs a bit of pressure. Always scary to do that over a mirror. Overall, it is a great portable mirror with the ease of a removable magnified mirror.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Long-lasting chargeLights are not very bright
Lightweight and portableSuction mirror needs a bit of pressure to apply
Different light settings for different moods

Best Long-lasting – VESAUR | Lighted Magnifying Makeup Mirror

vesaur-lighted-magnifying-makeup-mirror-best-long-lasting

Specification

  • Product Dimension: 15.59″L x 8.5″W
  • Shape: Round
  • Frame Material: Metal
  • Lighting: 3 color lights
  • Mounting Type: Tabletop mount

Description

Have a long-lasting product with up to 50,000 hours of light life in the Lighted Magnifying Makeup Mirror by VESAUR

Features

Long-lasting lights: up to 50,000 hours of use.

Strong swivel: be worry-free about the swivel breaking as it has been fatigue-tested.

Double-sided: have a regular mirror on one side and a magnified mirror on the other.

How to use

This is a very easy product to use. The light controls at the base with a knob. Press the knob to turn it on. Cycle through the different light settings by pressing on the knob again. After the last color, the light will turn off at the next press (which can be a bit annoying to deal with). Turn the knob to adjust the brightness of the light. As a double-sided mirror, it has a 360° swivel to turn the mirror around for the 10x magnified mirror.

Expert Verdict

A mirror should be something that you have for as long as you need to look at yourself. Mirrors with lights sadly last at most 2 years but you wouldn’t have to worry about that with VESAUR’s Lighted Magnifying Makeup Mirror! It has a long light life and the fact the swivel is sturdy and tested can give you the assurance that you wouldn’t have to worry about it breaking. The knob system gives it a classic feel, which can be a little annoying when you have to cycle through the light settings by turning it off. But the precision of turning for the brightness value amazed me, to say the least. The magnified mirror, however, was something left to be desired to be honest. It is pretty good when you look completely ahead, but the side distortions can make working with this mirror a bit of a challenge. It will last you a long time so be sure of that when you are using this mirror!

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Long-lasting lightsMagnified mirror has too much side distortion
Sturdy swivel that won’t break on youChanging the light setting might be annoying but you get used to it
Double-sided mirror

Best Compact Makeup Mirror – NEZZOE | Makeup Mirror Touch Screen Vanity Mirror

nezzoe-makeup-mirror-touch-screen-vanity-mirror-best-compact

Specification

  • Product Dimension: 9.37″L x 6.61″W
  • Shape: Curved rectangular
  • Frame Material: Plastic
  • Lighting: Natural lighting
  • Mounting Type: Kickstand mount

Description

NEZZOE’s Makeup Mirror Touch Screen Vanity Mirror is the perfect compact makeup mirror you will need for natural lighting makeup.

Features

Long bright light: be sure of up to 250 minutes of light at its brightest setting which is also rechargeable.

Compact mirror: bigger than your average compact makeup mirror but better than them, with the curved rectangular shape making it very easy to use.

Adjustable kickstand: use the kickstand to get just the right angle for when you are applying your makeup.

How to use

This product is an easy-to-use kickstand that you can pop out from the back and adjust according to the angle (30° to 100°). For the light setting, a single press will turn it on and off while a long press will help adjust the brightness of the lights.

Expert Verdict

When you think of compact mirrors, your mind will usually go to those little cases that pop out with a mirror inside (usually with powder makeup inside). Those are not really if you really want to set your makeup properly, more for touchups. But having a large compact mirror like the Makeup Mirror Touch Screen Vanity Mirror by NEZZOE will be just what you need to see everything on the mirror! It is very easy to use, and ultra-portable, where the curved shape makes it very easy to use by holding it in one hand. Sadly, it only has one light setting and the kickstand can feel quite flimsy if you are rough with it.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Portable large compact mirrorKickstand feels flimsy
Clear mirror to help you see your makeup application clearerOnly one light setting
Long lasting charge

Best Travel Mirror – Miroposs | Travel Makeup Mirror

miroposs-travel-makeup-mirror

Specification

  • Product Dimension: 7″L x 5″W
  • Shape: Rectangular with a round magnified mirror
  • Frame Material: Plastic
  • Lighting: 3-color light setting
  • Mounting Type: foldable stand

Description

Get a light setting that almost matches sunlight with Miroposs’s Travel Makeup Mirror. Its foldable cover acts as a stand, making it an ideal travel mirror

Features

98% match with sunlight: get an accurate natural lighting setting as well as indoor lighting.

Foldability: the convenience of folding the mirror so that you can carry it around wherever you go.

Suction magnified mirror: attach the magnified mirror whenever you need to touch up your makeup with a closer look or if you have bad eyesight.

How to use

The top cover can be rotated around to work as a stand for the mirror. The lighting can be changed and adjusted through the touch setting. A single press will turn the lights on and also cycle the 3 light settings. A long press will adjust the brightness settings at 20%, 50%, 80%, and 100% brightness.

Expert Verdict

When you are outside and need to quickly touch up your makeup, Miroposs’s Travel Makeup Mirror just feels right. It’s light, compact, and the folding keeps it safe inside your bag! If you are in a dimly lit room, you can quickly whip this mirror out and adjust the light settings so that you can touch up your makeup on the go. I was kinda skeptical about the brightness but it was well and truly bright, so you will have no problem with the lights on this mirror. The concerns that I will raise are the detachable mirror and how long the light stays on. The magnified is a bit too small, so you really need to look into it to see the details on your face. And the lights do need a constant charge, so it is better to use this to touch up your makeup on the go. But for travel purposes, it’s a brilliant little mirror!

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Good brightnessNeeds charge often
Very travel-friendlyMagnifying mirror is quite small
Good natural lighting setting

Factors to consider when choosing a makeup mirror

Type of makeup mirror

The beauty industry can be convoluted with different terms that can often mean the same thing. There are many types of mirrors out there for makeup. Folding mirrors are there to be closed when not in use. Compact and travel mirrors are the ones that you take with you on the go. Vanity mirrors are there to sit on top of your vanity chest of drawers or makeup table. Wall-mounted mirrors are large mirrors that are stationary and stuck to a wall, while a decorative mirror is a mirror with a design that fits your style. There are many such types that you will need to choose from when thinking of your makeup.

Mounting options

Mirrors come in many types of mounting options. Some are large and need to be stuck in the wall, while others are very convenient and can comfortably sit on your tabletop. There are also kickstands with your makeup mirror so that you can place it down wherever you are to do your makeup. It is important to know which mounting option suits you.

Lighting options

Lighting is another thing to watch out for. Do you need only one type of lighting or do you need the 3 usual lighting options such as cool light for work, warm light for events, and natural for a day out? And then there is an issue with brightness. It is important that you are able to see yourself when you are applying makeup, especially in a poorly lit area!

Magnification

To be able to do your eye and lips, you will the help of magnified mirrors to see every little bit of detail on your face. If you are someone with bad eyesight, then a magnified mirror is a must-have when you are buying a mirror. Otherwise, it gets really hard to apply your makeup if you can’t see clearly!

Extra features

These days, there are smart mirrors that are more than just mirrors. You can use social media, listen to music, charge your phone, and talk to your friends, all in from a mirror! If these are features that you need, then it should be something that you will have to factor into your decision to buy a mirror.

Budget

Lastly, the mirror has to be within your budget. You could buy a large wall-mounted mirror, but if it is out of your budget then you can’t afford it. There is also the quality of budget-friendly mirrors that you need to take into account. If they are not good, then was it worth buying that mirror? These are just some of the many factors that you will have to consider when you are buying a mirror.

 Maintenance and Care for Your Makeup Mirror

Your makeup mirror is important and works at its best when it is well-maintained and cared for. This involves cleaning it regularly, or whenever it gets dirty. Here are some cleaning tips for your mirror and maintenance that you can do to prolong your mirror life.

Maintenance and care for your makeup mirror

Cleaning Tips

  • Use cleaning products specific for mirrors (window cleaners are good options).
  • Wet the surface, using a clean cotton rag to help ease the trouble of getting rid of a dirty spot.
  • Clean the mirror from top to bottom, making sure to get the edges too.
  • Check at angles to see blemishes and spots that you otherwise wouldn’t have noticed.
  • Test out your mirror with a picture.

  • Make sure that you are not overcharging your LED mirrors
  • Replace batteries if needed
  • Keep away sharp objects to prevent scratches on your mirrors
  • Keep at least a distance of a few inches to avoid creating any smudges

FAQs

1. What magnification level is best for a makeup mirror?

2x to 3x magnification works best for a closer look at your face, while a 5x should be the optimal level of magnification before the mirror will start to distort.

2. What is the highest magnification in a mirror?

The highest level of magnification in a mirror is 20x! You have to be fairly close to such mirrors, otherwise, you will be looking at a reflection that is upside down.

3. Which mirror can be used as a makeup mirror?

Concave mirrors are the ones that you will need for a makeup mirror. These are curved mirrors that will help give you a more accurate reflection of your face when you are applying makeup or plucking your eyebrows.

4. Is 10x magnification too much?

10x magnification is not too much, but the distortion that is caused at the edges of 10x magnified mirrors makes it really hard to use. These types of mirrors require you to be very close to the mirror to get an accurate look at your face.

5. What makeup mirror should I get for people who need glasses?

Makeup mirrors with up to 2x, 3x, or 5x magnification and a large viewing surface will be helpful for someone who needs glasses to see. You could also get them mirrors that have LED lights to give more visibility when viewing their face.

Final Thoughts

And there you have it! These mirrors were very fun to try out, especially the smart mirror. Mirrors are just as important as choosing what makeup you are going to be putting on. Without a good, clear mirror, it will be infinitely more difficult to apply makeup. I hope that one of these mirrors is to your liking and that after reading my review you found exactly the mirror that you were looking for!
