Tools of the Trade: Marvelous Magnifying Makeup Mirrors

Raise your hand if you love those super magnifying mirrors that come out of the wall in hotel bathrooms. I consider then the ultimate treat. While CasaSugar has more household mirrors for you to explore, here are a few amazing magnifying mirrors for your vanity or bathroom that I think you'll love as much as I do.

Before you scream when you see how much this pricey piece costs, take notice of all of the gorgeous hand-done gold and detail. So yes, this is definitely a grooming mirror for the Ivanka Trumps of the world, but we can all appreciate beauty when we see it, can't we?

The Sophia Vanity Flip Mirror ($3,200) is apparently from the Winter Rose collection. I just love all of the multicolor Swarovski crystals that have been added as an elegant touch.

For two more makeup mirrors—including one for less than $20—

Conair Chrome Double-Sided Lighted Make-up Mirror ($19.99) is thankfully a lot more affordable and gets the job done just as well. Actually, it may work even better for spotting whiteheads, unwanted hairs, taking out your contacts, applying makeup and for whatever else you like to examine since it also features circular lighting. All you'll need is three AA batteries.

And I thought that this Irving Rice Rimless Makeup Mirror ($88) was on the fancy end of the magnifying mirror spectrum! This classy, stand-alone vanity mirror is made from brushed stainless steel or brushed brass (your choice) and allows for up to seven times magnification.

I can think of plenty of other beauty products I'd rather spend that $3,200 on!

The elaborate one is a bit too much - it'd be awful to clean. I might get the Conair one, as I've definitely been looking for a good magnifiying mirror, but I prefer quite strong light, so I do my makeup by the window, with a lamp as well (thus imitating the lighting conditions of the library :-p)

I have the conair mirror and I really love it! I wear contacts, so the magnification and the lighting on this mirror help me when I'm too tired to see straight in the morning!

The Sophia Vanity mirror looks like some gawd-awful decoration my grandma would get... from the Dollar Store. hah. Im being serious! I want something simple and classy, not over the top. I don't need ugly distractions while I'm putting on my makeup, thank you!

I have the plug-in Conair one that I got awhile back and I LOVE it. I don't know how I ever got along without one!

I actually just recently bought one almost just like that Conair one, except it's plug-in, and it's regularly $19.99 at Target. So far, I've actually found that natural light + light from a lamp on my vanity works better than the light on the mirror itself.

For $3200 that mirror had better be made of gold. :)
