As an avid makeup fan, who is constantly on the go, I have makeup with me everywhere ~ in my purse, in my car, in my work bag. This mirror is now a staple in my everyday makeup routine! It holds up to the beatings in my purse and allows me to perfectly apply or touch up my makeup anywhere. The size is perfect for on-the-go or everyday makeup application and it feels so substantial and well made. And a sweet little bonus is that my nieces love adding this mirror to their dress-up days because it makes feel "fancy". I'm absolutely in love with this mirror! Buy it ~ you won't regret it!
