Makeup, done right: Fancii Tria LED-Lighted Tri-Fold Makeup Mirror
Ever do your makeup in your bathroom, think you look fly as hell, and then leave and take a look at yourself and natural lighting and it looks like you’re wearing too much makeup or your foundation doesn’t match the rest of your body? That happens to me all the time.
My bathroom lighting is yellow-toned, so although I think I look great while I’m applying my makeup, once I leave, I notice that I didn’t do as great a job as I thought I did. To rectify this situation, I’ve started to do my makeup with a hand mirror in front of a window so I can work with natural lighting, but when it gets dark it’s kinda tough to do this.
I’ve always wanted one of those portable mirrors that have an LED light on them, but I often find them too expensive. Well, I was recently approached by Canadian-based online retailer, Fancii & Co., which specializes in in-demand beauty tools that won’t break the bank, to try out some of their products and I jumped at the chance to give their Tria – Trifold Vanity Mirror a shot.
I’ve seen these before, often sent out by brands with their logos on them, and have always wanted one, not only for home use, but also travel (I have some girls trips coming up, so this way I won’t have to wait in line for the bathroom mirror). The Tria- Trifold Vanity Mirror features a large mirror in the centre and then two wings that open up to a 1x, 5x, and 10x magnification. Best of all, it has touch-sensor button for natural daylight colour-correct LED lights, so I don’t have to set up shop in front of a window anymore.
Ever since I got this mirror, I have been pretty much obsessed with applying my makeup in front of it. Also, the lighting on it is perfect for getting rid of any unwanted facial hair since the lighting really highlights those little hairs that you normally wouldn’t notice until you’re outside in the sunshine (and then you feel self-conscious since you think everyone is staring at them… okay, maybe that’s just me). This mirror is battery operated or comes with a USB cord to power up and the illumination can be adjusted by just holding down the button on the mirror, so if you want it brighter or dimmer, you can do that.
Since it is 11.5-inches tall and 13-inches wide, it is perfect for travel. The mirror part is also detachable from the base so it’s easy to store. The base also has an organizer base, so you can keep your everyday makeup items in it. Fancii also has a number of other mirrors on their site (as well as facial cleansing brushes, hair straighteners, etc.), but I really love this one since it has the magnification on it (perfect for tweezing your eyebrows, applying false lashes, winged liner, etc.).
Best part of all is that it retails for C$45.99 (for comparison, this one from Simple Human is $500). Like I said, I’ve always wanted one of these mirrors, but I’m so happy that I held out to pick one up. I travel often, so I think this would be great to toss into my suitcase for trips where I’m putting more effort into my makeup (vacation versus work travel). Also, like I said, that dreaded bathroom light is not good matching my foundation to my neck, so this has definitely come in handy. I also love how they are a Canadian company, and their products shipped fast and was delivered through Amazon (not sure if all their products are shipping from Amazon).
If you are looking for a vanity mirror, then definitely check them out.
