True story: My bathroom lighting is bad. But when you’re a renter in New York City, there’s not a lot you can do about it, besides going to great expense to change out a fixture or two that you’ll inevitably have to leave behind when you move out. And naturally, the most problematic part of sub-par bathroom lighting primarily relates to vanity. It’s hard to pull off even an amateur-level makeup application when the lighting is dim. (Friends, this is why my eyeliner has been uneven for years.) Enter: the SimpleHuman sensor mirror.
This top-of-the-line mirror features a 5x magnified view, but more importantly, it comes with what SimpleHuman dubs its “tru-lux light system,” which simulates natural sunlight (so you never get too heavy-handed or imprecise with your eyeshadow or foundation).
