Before you buy a compact mirror, consider which of the following features you want to make your experience traveling with and using your compact considerably more enjoyable!

Magnification

Choosing the right mirror magnification may seem a little stressful at first. Most mirrors include a true-to-life mirror that’s life-size and perfectly mirrors what you would see in a bathroom mirror, car mirror, or window reflection. These mirrors help you see the full picture and all that’s there, but they aren’t great if you want to focus on little details.

Magnification can be as low as double magnification and as high as 10x magnification. 10x magnification is excellent for seeing pores up close and being able to focus on specific aspects of your appearance, from applying lipstick to looping in earrings. The only drawback with higher magnification is that the more magnified you go, the more you might get distracted by genuinely tiny flaws that you would not otherwise see!

Lights

LED lights are a fancy feature that some compact mirrors have. LED lights cast the mirror in a glow -- sometimes a warm, peachy light, other times a dusky blue. An LED-lit compact mirror may have one light setting or many. If there are multiple settings, each is intended to show your reflection in different brightness and detail.

Owning a mirror with LEDs allows you to use it day or night, dusk or dawn.

If you’re buying a compact with LEDs, pay close attention to maintenance requirements. This includes noting whether the compact will require batteries or an outlet. If it requires an outlet, it’s not as portable as it should be. If it requires batteries, make sure the compact either comes supplied with batteries or the batteries are mainstream enough to be easily purchased.
