I used to have a hand mirror and the handle broke so I decided to purchase this one instead of getting the same one I always get. Boy I was not disappointed, I use this mirror every day for anything and everything. I also comes with a detacheable smaller mirror for doing eyebrows and all that precise stuff. The only and I mean the ONLY downside to this mirror is that I wish the base was a little heavier, I have had incidents where I accidentally topple it all over my makeup and it's annoying but other than that I love this mirror. Truly a great product.
