I’ve been needing a large stand-up mirror for my vanity for the longest time. Most of the time I use a small fold-up mirror as I apply my makeup at my desk, but it’s so not glamourous. The moment I saw the information for Anna Sui Holiday 2011, I knew I wanted the Beauty Mirror Large, which is the largest mirror Anna Sui has ever released. This is a repromoted product from 2003, and the last time they came out with this, it sold out in a day! I purchased my mirror at Murale, and at the time I also got a Beauty Mirror P (also limited edition from this holiday) as a gift with purchase.
Here are some comparison photos. It’s pretty big, bigger than my face, which is perfect for its purpose. It is 8.5 inches by 11 inches, which is the size of a piece of letter paper. I have it standing next to my HP Touchpad (same size as the Apple tablet, not gonna say it because I’m gonna get lots of spam, haha), a Dior palette and the Beauty Mirror P.
You can see that the mirror is a good size for any vanity. It is not giant, but still big enough for you to see everything you need to see.
Here are the two mirrors standing side by side.
Some detailing of the Beauty Mirror P. I didn’t consider getting this one before, but the stained glass look is really pretty. I would probably get a lot of stares in public.
And some details from the Beauty Mirror L. The frame is made of metal, the mirror is glass and the stand is plastic. It feels heavy and well made. The angle it stands at is controlled by a chain, you can hook the chain up to a hook in the back and it will stand at different angles. I think this is a nice thoughtful touch because depending on the placement of your light, you will need a differently angled mirror.
The Anna Sui Beauty Mirror L is available for a limited time at Anna Sui counters across Canada, as well as on the Sears website, for $60. The Beauty Mirror P is available at the same places for $30. I received my Beauty Mirror P as a gift with purchase on the Beauty Mirror L at Murale, so if you are interested, I would suggest you move quickly!
