Shao Trifold Lighted Vanity Makeup Mirror REVIEW

              I have always wanted a lighted makeup mirror. Sometimes I would go on Pinterest just to look at them. The mirror that I have for my vanity table is big, but it's too far and makes applying my makeup a little bit difficult. It also doesn't have any lights over, nor around it. I have shopped for lighted makeup mirrors online and in stores, but the ones that I really liked were either too expensive or too big for my little makeup table. I was provided a coupon code to buy the Shao Trifold Lighted Vanity Makeup Mirror at a discount in exchange for my review. The rose gold color is so beautiful and I thought it would look great in my bathroom, since the theme is blue.

          Shao Trifold Lighted Vanity Makeup Mirror is well-built. It is lightweight and travel-friendly. The mirror lights up very bright, but the lights can be adjusted with a long press on the home button, which also turns the lights on and off. It is very easy to put the mirror together. All I had to do was snap the top part onto the base. Folding the mirror close keeps it from getting dirty, but it does not automatically turn the lights off. This makeup mirror is also battery operated, but I like to use the USB cord instead of batteries. I think it is very convenient. The mirror stays in place and the rotation is very easy (180 degrees), meaning it can be flipped all the way to the back. There is a little storage space at the base to store small stuff like earrings or hair pins.  It looks like the mirror is fragile. I dropped it on the carpet a couple of times, nothing happened. But I think it will be a different situation if I drop it on the bathroom floor.

Makeup using the mirror
          As far as getting the job done, I think the mirror provided enough lighting for me to apply my eyeshadow. Also, I was able to see my dark spots while applying my powder + foundation. I went outside after applying my makeup to make sure that I didn't overdo it. Everything seemed okay. My husband complains sometimes about how white my face looks when I do my makeup at night, but I have been getting compliments from him since I have been using this lighted mirror. The rose cold is a very beautiful color and the mirror fits perfectly on my vanity table.

  1. The color is beautiful and I like that the base has a small compartment. 3x the magnification sounds a little scary for me so I would most likely stick to the other two panels so I don't scare myself :) Thanks for the review.

  2. What a beautiful mirror! I love the rose gold color!

  3. This mirror seems to have the lights we all want and I like the price too.Kudos!

  4. I love the rose gold! I've been looking for a lighted mirror for quite some time now, but many of them are out of my price range. Thank you for sharing such a detailed review of this one! I'm liking the price point, size, and especially the color. Great post, Nerline!
