I am a huge fan of Lee Stafford and his range of affordable, yet oh so glamorous, hair and beauty accessories. The latest addition to his growing collection may just be the most girlie, glam mirror you will ever see. In glorious pink chrome, and with a light up option that doesn’t require you to plug it in, the Lee Stafford ‘Lighten Up’ illuminating, magnifying mirror is sleek and stylish and would be a great gift idea for anyone who loves the fashionable things in life.
One of the main things I love about this mirror is the fact that the illumination comes from batteries. This makes the mirror portable, both in terms of moving it around your house, and for traveling. The mirror takes 3 AA batteries which can be picked up cheaply from Poundland, and these are easy to put in at the bottom of the mirror – no screwdriver required.
The mirror itself is very pretty. It is a glorious shade of hot pink, with the mirror and fitting itself being chrome, the base a similar coloured plastic. There are to separate mirrors with 360degree rotation, so you have normal (1x) magnification which is ideal for putting on make up, whilst the (3x) magnification is perfect for plucking brows, examining skin in more detail, even checking out those wrinkles and new grey hairs. (shudders!)
The illumination is gentle and soft rather than garish and overly bright, think film star mirrors surrounded by lights. This makes it perfect for a dressing table rather than to be used as a bathroom mirror. As this is also beautifully boxed, it would be a great gift idea for a birthday or Mother’s Day.
The mirror comes with a one year guarantee from the date of purchase, but you can win a mirror of your own, worth £29.99 by entering the competition below.
