LED Lighted Magnifying (1x & 5x) Trifold Small Makeup Mirror by iLuminate

Well this lighted makeup mirror is compact but not necessarily small; At least when I hear, “compact mirror” I think of those small mirrors that come with face powder so be aware that this mirror is compact but it is not hand-size small. However, this mirror has some really cool features that those small mirrors do not offer. It requires four AAA batteries which are provided and go at the bottom of the mirror which is accessible once the mirror is opened and extended. The mirror weights nine ounces which do not sound like much but I can definitely feel it when I have the mirror on my hands. I weighted the mirror and in fact it does weight nine ounces. It easily can fit in a regular size purse.

This lighted makeup mirror by iLuminate has two mirrors, one is a LED lighted regular 1x mirror and the second one is a 5x magnifier mirror without lights. I have to say that it was a bit difficult to open at first, now its easier but still not completely smooth. The mirror opens like an accordion. The bottom has the housing for the batteries and the on and off button. The center has the 1x lighted mirror. The top has the 5x magnifier mirror. What is really cool about this mirror is that I can look at an area of my face with the regular 1x and if I want more detail I just need to look up and see the same area but magnified. I really like the size of this mirror as I do not take it out of the house, I mostly use it to remove my eyebrows while sitting at a comfortable spot so its size is perfect for that task. I do not need to keep moving the bathroom’s lighted magnifying mirror around the house. I wish I had this mirror when I traveled some months ago as it would have been so convenient.

Overall, I find this mirror very useful, and I like it but I would have loved it if I could control the brightness of the LED as it can be blinding if used for a while. Personally, I would not carried it in my purse in a daily basis as those nine ounces would only add on to my smaller than average purse but I would surely use it for travel.
