See yourself in a new light with this MelodySusie LED Makeup Mirror giveaway

Put on your memory cap to remind yourself about the MelodySusie LED 2-in-1 Makeup Mirror or read on to see what a great mirror is in this new giveaway. melody susie

MelodySusie’s LED Makeup Mirror is what’s gracing my vanity and will be the first item unpacked in my new home (today by the way). This mirror does it all for me. It mimics daylight with its LED lighting so that I can see what I look like in different lights. The mirror is very clear though it’s not a magnifying mirror but I seem to see better in it than my previous makeup mirror. The light is bright and white.

It comes with both a USB adaptor cord and a battery pack (4 AA’s) so it’s portable. The cool thing is that the mirror has a 180 degree movement so you can flip it and use it as a night table lamp. The mirror itself has an 8.5″ diameter and swivels 180 degrees. The stand is 10.5 inches tall.

The bottom tray is great for holding the cosmetics you are using especially things like liners that might roll, tweezers and eyelash combs that aren’t big and seem to hide, the mascara you are using, and more.

My favorite product for March: MelodySusie 2-in-1 LED Makeup Mirror

I’ve reviewed a lot of products this month but there’s one in particular that is making me happy day in and day out. The MelodySusie Narcissus 2-in-1 LED Mirror Lamp has improved my vanity 100 fold.

The mirror has hidden talents. Besides being a wonderful makeup mirror on a stand it can be used as a reading lamp or as a nightlight. For me it’s the fact that it’s a wonderful mirror without any distortion that lights up. I’ve looked at many lighted mirrors but they all had something wrong with them for my lifestyle.

The price on most lighted makeup mirrors is out of my price range since the ones my friends rave about are around $200. MelodySusie’s 2-in-1 LED Mirror is only $39.99 on Amazon. Score!melody susie

I need a mirror on a stand at my vanity. I sit and apply makeup (I’ve even done it from a wheelchair – yuck) so something too low isn’t going to work for me. The MelodySusie mirror is just the right height for me. It’s like I custom ordered it.

This doesn’t need to be plugged in although you could use the USB charger to do so. I don’t have room for more cords and plugs so I use 4 AAA batteries and it’s lasting for 2 months so far.

The mirror itself has an 8.5″ diameter and swivels 180 degrees. The stand is 10.5 inches tall.

In addition to all of these pluses, the light can be set on low or made brighter by turning on the backlight.

Plus there’s the tray at the bottom where I store things. If I apply makeup early I’ll often go back to touch it up so I’ll leave that day’s colors on the tray. Right now mine has my tweezers, Tweezerman eyelash comb, my thinnest eyeliner brush, and my Osmosis Brow Gel resting happily on it. I’ll put my vitamins on the tray too so I can take them slowly during my makeup process.

This took a minute to set up and two minutes to learn to use it. The touch buttons on the side are easy to use although I kept forgetting to turn off the backlight and needed to be reminded.

I am so thrilled with the performance of the MelodySusie Narcissus 2-in-1 LED Mirror Lamp that I had to name it my product of the month. I expect it to be the product of the month daily for a long time to come too. I’ve tried quite a few MelodySusie products and use them often but this is the star of the show.  —  Marcia

MAC, Archie, Betty and Veronica – what a heartful team

Each year as Valentines day approaches the urge to buy something with hearts on it becomes stronger and stronger. I’ve got a beautiful collection of crystal hearts and don’t have room for more. So I turned to cosmetics, what a shock!  The last two years Stila had some beautiful blush palettes and this year MAC surprisingly came through. Their new Archie collection is loaded with hearts attracting me until I could take it no longer and I ordered MAC’s Archie Girls Flatter Me and Veronica’s Blush plus a mirror.

Flatter Me and Veronica’s Blush

I grew up with Betty and Veronica. My sister and I always loved the dark sultry looks of Veronica since we are brunettes. Neither of us fell for Archie though. Having these three items is like reliving my youth (and a good excuse to buy).

MAC Veronica's Blush

MAC Veronica’s Blush

The Pearlmatte Face Powder designed for Veronica is called Veronica’s Blush and the colors are a soft peach with coral hearts. Betty’s powder is Flatter Me and the colors are a very soft pink with scarlet hearts. The two beauty powders are beautiful and silky soft. The colored hearts are too tiny to be used as blush but they give you an option when using the compacts. You can use just the base shade for a very soft glow or you can sweep a brush over all of the colors and add more color to your face.

My big disappointment though is that I wasn’t aware that I actually had the beauty powders from before. If I’d known that I probably would have passed them up in spite of those little hearts. Veronica’s Blush is actually Play it Proper Beauty Powder with Frankly Scarlet blush while Flatter Me is Shell Pearl Beauty Powder with Foolish Me blush in the hearts. But when you run your blush or powder blush over the entire compact you’ll find that you get more color than the original Beauty Powder’s did. There’s a subtle sheen to these powders. If you notice they are called Pearlmatte, not Pearlmate, so even though they are similar to the original they aren’t exactly the same.

The mirror is a good purse size and comes with a slightly larger pouch to carry it safely in. Of course I didn’t need it but it just was too cute to pass up. The mirror is about 3″ x 3″ and the adorable vinyl case it comes in is about 4 ½” x 4 ½”. I forgot to take a picture of the inside but it’s red with white hearts. For someone as addicted to hearts as I am, this is just the most fun to own and pull out. So far I’ve only had a few strange looks!! Now my big question is where is Reggie?  Maybe he and Jughead need to ask MAC to feature them next.archie mirrors

No surprise that this is a limited edition collection with some things selling out instantly. You can often find the products online at Nordstrom or in the stores. Are you a Betty or a Veronica? Did you get lured into Archie’s Girls? — Marcia
