I love my new mirror. It's not quite as bright as some make up mirrors but for the price it's a good mirror. The smaller mirror is great for doing those things like plucking eyebrows and doing eye makeup. It suctions onto the larger mirror and then you have the benefit of the light. The brightness of the light can be adjusted by pressing down on the front button until it gets to the level you wish. If you aren't going to use the light for sometime, you can turn it off on the back so the button on the front doesn't get bumped.
