I got this mirror because my bathroom has soft yellow lighting. Whenever I got outside, I found that my makeup didn't match or blend correctly because I couldn't see it fully with the weak light source.
This mirror is great. It corrects that problem for me. I'm still figuring out how to use it fully, but already, I'm noticing that it's easier to make sure my makeup will look good under different light sources. The 5x mirror is great for eyeliner applications as well.
