A magnifying mirror is a must-have for any woman. But, as my daughter began to pack for her freshman year at college, I realized she won’t have room for a bulky, lighted version in her tiny dorm room. Nor can she install a swing arm mounted version like she has here at home.
The solution? A freestanding, makeup mirror from Oak Leaf Boutique.
This mirror is the perfect size for tight spaces (and really, what room is smaller than a freshman dorm room?). It’s only 6-inch across, so it will easily fit on a dresser or desk, leaving more space for books, essays, and homework (I hope!).
It’s also very lightweight. So, it will be easy to pack for the trip to school. And, it will be simple to move about the room, as well.
Finished in shiny chrome, the mirror has a swivel design and two sides. One is a regular mirror and the other is 5x magnification mirror. The 5x magnification is a must when trying to pluck eyebrows, line eyes, or apply blush evenly.
This mirror retails for only $12.99, which is a mere fraction of the $39.99 I paid not long ago for a wall mounted mirror. And, this mirror is so sturdy and well-made, it is sure to last her long past her college years.
