Yes, it’s one of the most expensive makeup mirrors you can buy—but this Simplehuman mirror with 5X magnification is in a class of its own. From its sleek modern profile to a Danish-designed high-fidelity speaker, you might just fall in love with the design before you even experience its function. When you walk into the room and the sensor detects your face, the mirror greets you by lighting up. Their tru-lux light system is designed to render color with the accuracy of natural sunlight and you can control brightness with a touch bar and dim to a simulated candlelight setting. Alexa is built right in, so you can play music as you preen, ask for the latest news, and call up your local weather forecast. The Simplehuman app allows you to customize Alexa and your mirror settings for your preferred morning routine.
Sing While You Inspect

The silver nickel finish and shapely base of the iHome mirror give it a distinctly futuristic look. High and low LED settings offer bright, full-spectrum light to pinpoint every detail of your face, especially when you have the dual-sided mirror turned to 7X magnification. Take advantage of the Bluetooth speakers to amplify makeup tutorials so you can follow along in real-time, or use the built-in microphone to return calls as you blend your foundation. It’s definitely not just for makeup artists: Shaving, tweezing, and other personal grooming can be accomplished more accurately, all while you sing along to great tunes.

You can also charge a USB device when the mirror is plugged in with its AC adapter, so you won’t run your phone’s battery down, no matter how long your glamour routine takes.
