      A really great handy product. Essential for all handnags IMO

      Saw this in Primark for just one pound one day last year and so snapped one up quickly (dont need to be told twice LOL) and was very eager to use it so replaced my old one that is always in my handbag with this one. The light on it was great and shone just the right amount, almost like facing towards the sun, that natural type of light I would describe it as. It slid up instead of a flip one which in my opinion was an advantage as the flip ones would always seem to snap on me :( booo!
      Anyways I used this super lots and also found it a great product for when removing hair from the intimate region as it gave adequate sight with the biggish mirror and light aswell. The batteries never did actually run out, even after 11 months of use! And it was being used atleast twice a day! But sadly, after 11 months of great helpfulness I was sliding it up and the poor thing came in half and was broken :( Now I've been looking for one for the past couple of months each time I go into town and into Primark but they never have them :( will still keep my eyes out all the time though as for a pound it gave such help to me :) RECOMMENDED! :)

      cheap and cheerful - a good addition to the make-up bag until you can find something better

      Received this as a little extra present one Christmas and thought it was a fantastic idea. I have a light up mirror on my dressing table which is amazing for plucking eyebrows and applying makeup so a little portable one was a great addition to my make-up bag as I was going travelling for a couple of months.
      The mirror is plastic, metallic purple colour, about 6cm x 6cm and has two mirrors inside. One is magnifying and has two little, but very bright LED lights either side to illuminate your face. This is excellent for plucking eyebrows. There is also another mirror with no lights on the opposite side. It's a really great concept for something so cheap, but it's a shame that I encountered a few problems.
      The first is that the mirror only opens at just over 90 degree angles; I would like it to open into a straight line as it would make it so much user-friendly. My other problem is that one of the mirrors came unglued from the back after about two weeks, which means every time I open it the mirror falls out. It can be easily fixed with superglue though. The LED lights have lasted for over a year, but I wish there was an option to turn them off. They come on automatically every time you open the mirror and sometimes it's not necessary and a bit annoying.
      Overall it's a fantastic idea and if I see one for sale by a better brand I would definitely get one.

        Cheap & Chearful! Small & Stylish!

        As somebody who works in the beauty industry, I love to shop in Primark as they often have little bargins on beauty products. So imagine my delight when I saw this little compact mirror in my favourite colour (pink).

        As soon as I saw it, I threw it into my basket because I thought at £1 you can't really go wrong!
        It wasn't untill I was stood in the queue, waiting to pay for my items that I picked up my little mirror to have a closer look.
        I was extremely chuffed when I saw that the mirror also had an LED light which lights up when you open it!

        My partner was also pleased with my purchase as i'm often running late when we're getting ready for parties, as I like to take my time and do my make up.
        So now if we are running behind schedule, he gets me to do my make up in the car, as my mirror has it's own light!

        I've had my mirror for a while now and it did fall out of it's case at one stage, but i just used some super glue to put it back together. This did not bother me, as for the price I purchased it, it was more than worth it!

        Do I need this light in daylight?!?

        I am pretty sure, that when purchasing this item I was not in need of yet ANOTHER mirror, however when I saw it was pink, a mirror and lit up, I just couldn't resist.

        It is a primark mirror and is in a medium - hot pink colour, with a little LED light. It costs just £1, which in my mind is an absoloute bargain!

        The mirror is quite flat to look at and is pink on either side, to see the light you slide the front of the mirror case down which reveals the actual mirror and the little LED light.
        At first I didn't think that mine lit up, however you have to pull it down a bit further than you first realise (don't worry, it won't break!) in order for it to light up!

        The light is a bluey/clear colour and though it is visible that it is on in daylight, it really doesn't make much difference, however, when used when it is darker this slight really does make all the difference.

        The mirror is not the best of quality and quickly and easily become dirty, however, does all it needs to do and you can easily and clarly see yourself!

        Overall this is definitley worth a £1 and is a nice, handy pocket size item that you can carry around with you!

          A good product and it is only a £1 :)

          Light Up Compact Mirror

          I went in primark about three weeks ago before my holiday to get some last minute things and in the Manchester primark they have a 'beauty' section which includes products such eye lash curlers, false lashes, lip butters and many more things that are obviously very cheap. I bought this compact mirror and I also bought a 6 in 1 nail file which is really good and durable.

          It is hot pink which is pretty and I think they had another colour as well. It is a normal mirror which is a good size but when you push up one size of the plastic case to expose the mirror, a light at the top of the mirror clicks on, which is really handy.

          I bought it as I needed a compact mirror for my holiday and it is really good but it also has a small LED at the top of the mirror when you push it up. Which is really really bright, so it is great for using in low light.

          I used it on holiday and it was really good up until I dropped it, when the battery fell out of the back! And I only dropped it on to the carpet as well, so it was not like it was a really a hard surface either. But it was easy to put back together but it is not made to the best standard.

          Overall, it is a really good compact mirror (with a light) and it works well - but it is not made to a very high standard. It looks good and it was really really cheap to so I was not that surprised that it broke. It was only £1 at primark so it is not a lot of money.

          Conclusions
          Good points
          *Very bright LED light at the top
          *Can use and push up the sliding mirror with one hand - easy to use
          *Looks pretty - being hot pink
          *Very very cheap
          *Good size - for a compact mirror

          Bad points
          *Not made to the best standard

          Thank you for reading my review
