Cheap Tabletop Makeup Mirror Reviews
Here you can ready detailed reviews of every unit shown above. Although most of these are cheap makeup mirror with lights, you can also find two excellent units that are unlighted below.
Conair Natural Daylight Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror – Lighted Vanity Makeup Mirror; 1x/10x magnification; Satin Nickel Finish
I’ve featured this cheap makeup mirror previously on my “best of list” and it also belongs here for one simple reason – it delivers fantastic quality at an attractive price. You’ll instantly notice its unique design that gives it an especially elegant look while maintaining the handy ability of a swiveling head. Overall the mirror stands at 16″ of height and it weighs around 3.7 lbs which makes it easy to carry while also being stable. The mirror face measures 8.5″ in diameter and it’s double-sided, giving you a regular side and a potent distortion-free 10x magnification on the other which ensures you can ace the tiniest details of your makeup with ease. Both of the sides are lighted, offering you a fluorescent bulb light ring that’s not only 30% brighter than the regular and color-correct (hence the Daylight name) but also 60% more efficient (saving you a lot of energy) and it makes for a great helping hand when it’s dark. The swiveling is also smooth and sturdy, locking in place securely at any angle you want. It’s powered on and off by using the switch on the cord and the cord itself measures around 4 feet which gives you a nice amount of length to position the mirror. Conair’s “Daylight” is available in a satin nickel finish (pictured) and in an oiled bronze finish that looks great as well. With 1 year of warranty to boot, this is one of the best cheap tabletop makeup mirrors you can get.
Conair 3-Way Touch Control Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror – Lighted Vanity Makeup Mirror; 1x/8x magnification; Satin Nickel Finish
Another entry from Conair, this one gives you touch controlled brightness, a different magnification combo and a more traditional design while maintaining the previous mirror’s large size and great lighting. Design-wise it’s more classic but just as hefty and well constructed, giving you a sturdy base and a solid fit/finish work that makes the mirror look good. It’s 17.5″ tall, the mirror face itself measures 8.5″ and it’s double-sided as well, featuring both regular and 8x magnification. They both offer a clear and distortion-free reflection plus the head can swivel 360º, adapting to your view. The lighting’s pretty solid, offering 3 brightness levels that can be selected by just tapping the base and the power cord is 5′ long which helps to place the mirror anywhere with ease. Just like the other model it comes with 1 year of warranty and it’s available in 2 finishes – satin nickel and matte black – both of which look good. Conair makes great bang for the buck products and this one is no exception.
Miusco 7X Magnifying Lighted Makeup Mirror, 8 Inch Two Sided White Daylight LED Vanity Mirror, Battery and Adapter
One of the best ever “value for the price” cheap makeup mirrors, Miusco’s popular entry manages to combine great features and a thin, good looking design into a super affordable package that’s hard to miss. Starting with its incredibly slim mirror face, it measures 8″ in diameter and it’s both double-sided and double-lighted, offering you a regular and a 7x magnified side which is a fantastically versatile magnification level. It swivels, as expected, and the LED lighting apart from being energy-saving and long-lasting (40,000 hours) is also decently bright and can be dimmed by using the power knob on the base. It can be powered by either an AC adapter or by using 4xAA batteries (not included) which I don’t recommend as they’ll quickly run out (around 1 week of use, still great for travels though). It’s 14″ tall overall and the design while traditional is unique due to the really slim mirror face plus the brushed steel finish is also handsome. Miusco’s popular budget makeup mirror is without a doubt a great choice.
Conair Double-Sided Lighted Makeup Mirror – Lighted Vanity Mirror; 1x/7x magnification; Polished Chrome Finish
Conair’s oval beauty delivers quality construction and performance at a stunningly low price which is the main reason for it being the most popular choice ever among cheap light up makeup mirrors. It has a double-sided mirror face with an uniquely elegant oval shape that measures 7″ x 9.5″. Although both sides are lighted one has no magnification and the other has a versatile and distortion-free 7x magnification. You can also tilt the mirror face to fit your preferred angle. The lighting isn’t the best and you’ll probably need to use a strong room light as well but it still helps, especially if you get up close. When it comes to the construction quality, it’s pretty solid for the price and the available finishes all look great – polished chrome, satin nickel and oiled bronze. The huge cherry on top is of course the insanely low price that makes it easy to get over the drawbacks. It also comes backed with 1 year of warranty and in my opinion it’s the cheapest lighted makeup mirror you can get while still getting solid quality.
When it comes to unlighted cheap makeup mirrors, this Decobros’ model is by far the most popular. It’s sturdily built, has a big 8″ mirror face and both the 1x and 7x magnification sides offer a clear, distortion-free reflection. The design is simple but classic and effective, featuring a swiveling head to match your preferred angle. It’s also quite hefty for added stability while still being easy to carry and the nickel finish makes it a nice complement to any type of room decor. What blew my mind was that it also comes with a lifetime warranty which is pretty rare at this price range and something I’m sure you’ll appreciate. It’s simple but effective and surprisingly well constructed, making it a fantastic budget option.
And here we’ve got another entry from the great team at Decobros. It’s extremely similar to the one shown above except it’s smaller and slightly different in looks, featuring a 6″ double-sided mirror face with one regular side and another with 8x magnification plus it has a more detailed design. In terms of construction quality it’s the exact same, offering you a sturdy and hefty body with a swiveling head and clear, distortion-free mirror faces. It’s 11.75″ tall and weighs around 2.2 lbs which makes it very stable while still being easily carried around. The design’s more classic than the previous one, giving you a few more curves and detailing instead of the ultra-modern minimal look and the finish – nickel – looks great too. It comes with the same lifetime warranty and even though the quality stays the same the price is even lower, making this the cheapest unlighted makeup mirror I can recommend.

Cheap Wall-Mounted Makeup Mirror Reviews
Here you’ll find a detailed analysis of every option shown in the table above, giving you a clear and thorough idea of what each one has to offer. The first 4 mirrors are lighted units and the other 4 are regular ones, let’s take a look!
If you want an affordable wall-mounted makeup mirror that delivers resort level quality, this is it. With an 8.5″ double-sided and double-lighted mirror face that gives off a crystal-clear reflection, your makeup or grooming up will be an enjoyable and easy task plus its elegant looks are sure to give your room a strong decorative boost as well. It’s available in 3 finishes – chrome, nickel and bronze – all of which look stunning and have the same fantastic amount of quality. Apart from the smooth and sturdy 13.5″ extension arm, you also get all the features you could need such as a 360º swiveling head, 1x and 8x magnification (which is a powerful and versatile combination) and top notch LED lighting. The LED lighting is not only super long lasting (40,000 hours) and energy saving, as expected, but also bright, color-correct (perfect for makeup) and the light rings always stay cool to the touch which keeps you safe. It’s well constructed too and a breeze to assemble plus it comes backed with 1 year of warranty which is always a nice bonus. This beautifully inexpensive wall mounted makeup mirror is without a doubt among the best you can get.
From the same brand, Jerdon, comes this huge 9.5″ single-sided unit that offers great construction quality, bright lighting and an extremely versatile 5x magnification that can perfectly handle regular use while still being powerful enough for the finer details as well. Starting with my favorite feature, the large 9.5″ mirror face, it not only produces a flawlessly distortion-free reflection but it’s also beautifully well lit by the long-lasting and energy-saving LED lighting ring which is bright, color-correct and distributes the light evenly across your face. Due to it being a single-sided mirror and not needing a swivel, it has a longer arm extension than the usual, measuring 16″ in total, which always comes in handy plus the mirror face is adjustable to all angles, perfectly adapting to your position. It’s sturdily built and handsomely detailed, as expected from the brand, and it’s available in 2 different finishes – nickel and chrome. The assembly is a breeze, you can either use the simple power cord that comes with it or hard-wire it with ease if you prefer, and it also has 1 year of warranty. In short, it’s the best affordable single-sided mirror on the market.
Conair Round Shaped Double-Sided Wall Mount Lighted Makeup Mirror; 1x/8x magnification; Oiled Bronze Finish
This affordable wall-mounted makeup mirror is one of Conair’s biggest successes. It combines great quality and performance with gorgeous looks – all at an unbelievable price, making this mirror one fantastic choice. First of all it looks beautiful thanks to both the design and the stunning finishes – brushed nickel and oiled bronze – and the construction quality is impressively solid which is a massive bonus in my book. The 8.5″ mirror face is double-sided, giving you both regular and wonderful 8x magnification, and double-lit as well plus it swivels and rotates to perfectly fit your angle. It’s got an incandescent light ring that gives a warmer traditional glow as opposed to the harsher hues of the modern LED lights which is something you might prefer and it’s bright enough to lend a big helping hand, especially when close up. The arm extends to approximately 16″ in total and the mirror uses a simple on/off switch on its base to handle the power. Assembling this mirror is super easy and you can either use the included 5′ cord or hard-wire it, whichever you prefer. It’s available not only in two finishes as I mentioned above but in two different magnification combos as well – 1x/8x and 1x/7x – so be sure to pick the one you like best. To finish off nicely, it also comes with year of warranty included. With this amount of bang for the buck, it’s no wonder it is such a beloved mirror.
By far the most popular lighted wall-mounted unit on the list, Jerdon’s insanely famous HL65N strikes a perfect balance of quality and affordability, giving you a fully-featured experience that’s backed with gorgeous looks, sturdy construction and other little details that make it deserving of its fame. The body has all the features you’d expect such as a 14″ extending arm, 360º smooth swiveling head and a hefty construction plus the finish is gorgeous and customizable too, you can choose from 4 different ones – nickel, chrome, bronze and bright brass – all of which look fantastic. The 8″ mirror face gives off a clear, distortion-free reflection on both the regular and 5x magnification side and the incandescent light ensures an even glow all across your face. If the light’s brightness itself is a little low for you, you can easily replace it with a more potent bulb set to fit your needs which is a feature I really appreciate. You can use it with the included power cord or simply hardwire it if you prefer and the mirror comes with the brand’s trademark 1 year warranty and fantastic service. One great feature is that while it fogs up, it clears super quickly as opposed to regular mirrors which is great news if you’re going to use it in a bathroom. Versatile in both use and looks, this sturdily built and well-performing beauty is guaranteed to please – the incredible price is just the cherry on top.
GURUN Two-Sided Swivel Wall Mounted Makeup Mirror With 7X Magnification,Oil-Rubbed Bronze,M1207O(8”,7XMagnification)
Gurun products have heavily impressed me before, in fact they created one of my favorite wall mounted makeup mirrors of all time, and this beautifully crafted unit is no exception. Not only is the mirror itself expertly constructed and of high quality but the magnification is completely customizable in order to perfectly fit your needs. It has a nice and large double-sided 8″ mirror face and although this is the 1x/7x model (the best combination in my opinion), you can also get it in 5x or 10x magnifications all of which are distortion-free. The body has a gorgeous oil-rubbed finish and all the features you’d expect such as a 12″ extension arm, swiveling head and an easy assembly process. It’s also backed with an incredible 5 year warranty, the brand’s service is top-notch and it comes stunningly well packaged to the point where it makes for a truly beautiful gift. If you’re looking for an affordable wall mounted makeup mirror but don’t need the extra lighting, this is an excellent choice.
Similarly to the model shown above, this Jerdon unit offers a double-sided 8″ mirror face with 1x and 8x magnification, a 13.5″ extension arm and a smooth 360º swiveling head at a fantastic price, although there are some changes that set them apart as we’ll see right now. First of all the extension arm on this model’s slightly longer at 13.5″ and there’s only one magnification combo – 1x/8x – instead of the choices that the other one presents. The magnification combo is great though as it presents a flawless reflection and really helps to nail the details of your makeup (8x is quite powerful). It’s also available in two different finishes – nickel and chrome – that look great and can fit nearly any room’s decor with ease. These are the main differences although the rest of the features as mentioned above are very alike and they also share great construction quality. The assembly is a breeze and the mirror comes with 1 year of warranty as well. It’s simple, effective and gorgeously cheap, you can’t go wrong with it.
Excelvan 10x Magnification 8 Inch Double-Sided Swivel Wall Mount Makeup Mirror, 12 Inch Extension, Polished Chrome Finished
An up and coming competitor, Excelvan’s cheap wall mounted makeup mirror has been getting quite the attention due to its all-around solid quality, elegant good looks and truly mind blowing price. It’s made of light steel and has a polished chrome finish that plays along well with its minimal design and it offers some customization as well, giving you the choice to get either a 1x/10x, 1x/5x or 1x/7x magnification combo. The arm extends up to 12″ and the head swivels as well, allowing you to always find the right angle. Its 8″ mirror face produces a good reflection on both sides and the material quality is surprisingly good for the price. The assembly is quick and easy plus the mirror comes backed with 1 year of warranty as well. Although it’s not particularly innovative in any way, it delivers the essentials without big drawbacks and at a heavily discounted price which makes it good enough to be on the list.
The famous JP7506BZ is famous for a reason – it doesn’t get any cheaper than this and somehow Jerdon still managed to provide a really solid unit at an insanely low price point. First of all you’ve got 3 different finishes to choose from – bronze, chrome and nickel – all of which look impressively beautiful for the price and the craftsmanship is equally as surprising. The 8″ double-sided mirror offers you a versatile 1x/5x magnification combination that delivers a clear, distortion-free reflection – something that’s rare at this price. The head also swivels in 360º and the arm extends up to 13.5″ which ensures it adapts to your position. It mounts very easily (all hardware included) and comes with 1 year of warranty as well, making this cheap wall mounted makeup mirror a complete package at a truly astounding price. I don’t know how Jerdon managed this feat but it’s surely appreciated by all budget shoppers.
