I have had to use a lighted mirror that magnifies for applying makeup for quite awhile now. My old mirror needed upgrading because the magnification is not strong enough for me anymore. I've been searching for months for a mirror that I can use. Some have this, some have that, some have 10x which is too much for me. Then there is the light, the on off switch, the color, the weight, and Oh My. Totally confused and have been going around with chin hairs and am so glad I finally found this one. Great price, best buy free shipping. I gave it five stars, but there is just one little flaw, but I would not take away a whole star for it. The light could be just a tad brighter but I have a lamp. The 7X is perfect for me so I am very satisfied with this. The bronze is very nice. My other mirror was a little larger and round but this oval will do fine. Not perfect but the best I've found without breaking the bank.
