To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Some comments suggest that the mirror is of poor quality because you have to be very close to see well, so putting on makeup is difficult. This type of mirror is often with suction cups because to see you have to be very close. That's how a magnifying mirror works. If you want to be at a comfortable distance you have to wear monocles for each eye ;) or more simply wear contact lenses. The description of Beauty Planet is very clear and you have exactly what is described. Plus, it comes with a tweezers that works well and a pocket for transport :) It's a very good purchase ... 5 stars.
Waste of money- returning. Had bought two and was very disappointed. The focal point on the zoom requires you to be like one inch from the mirror which does not even allow space for your hand in the middle to apply makeup. USELESS!
It came in perfect shape, not broken or anything. But the magnifying side of the mirror is very difficult to use. You have to hold your face 1-2inches away from the mirror, or everything is upside down. Therefore, it's not very useful because the mirror is so close to your face.
Everything about the mirror, shipping time, packaging, appearance, added touches like a cloth wipe and tweezers was a nice touch. My only disappointment was that it did not meet my expectations of a 20X mirror. I have a 20X in a different model and the magnification was completely different.
