This is the smartest makeup mirror we've ever seen
Simplehuman, a manufacturer of everyday household items ranging from a $26 paper towel holder to the $400 Wi-Fi Wide-View Sensor Mirror, just released a new product -- the $250 Sensor Mirror Pro.
The Sensor Mirror Pro has a lot of the basic stuff you'd expect from a pricey vanity mirror. It comes with 5x and 10x magnification for applying things up close and personal -- think liquid eyeliner, eyelash curling, foundation contouring -- and any other makeup application or general personal grooming that would be easier in tight focus.
It also has a "tru-lux light system" with a color rendering index (CRI) of 90. Check out this overview of CRI scores for more details, but generally the closer the number is to 100, the better a light approximates natural light. Professional hair and makeup artist Cynthia Laws told me that daylight is the best case scenario for applying makeup, so a CRI score of 90 seems like a very good sign for this mirror.
