The Simplehuman wide view sensor mirror is a wi-fi connected smart mirror that imitates light settings, so you can put on makeup.
And PS, it's $400.
Let's say you.
Do you work in an office and wanna make sure your makeup looks good for your nine to five?
You can take a selfie at your office with the simple human app,
and the mirror will create a lighting scheme that imitates the light from that selfie.
We tested the simple human mirror as much as we could.
We took some readings of the mirrors lighting schemes, such as daylight and flourescent settings.
And the simple human imitates those situations pretty well.
We also spent plenty of time putting on our own makeup.
The lighting was great, and it was easy to select settings inside the app.
But, the mirror only magnifies one time, that's just not enough for detail work.
But, we're makeup amateurs, and this is a product for the pros.
So, we gave it to a makeup artist and a makeup enthusiast to get their take on this
Bad lighting, if you do your makeup in bad lighting, you may as well not have done it.
I don't think women need to know anything about lighting to do their makeup.
I think they need to know about their makeup.
The lighting is really good.
I wish it had a magnifier.
I think magnification is key.
I think it needs to magnify.
Magnification just for that detail work.
If it's for my primary mirror, I would still have to have a new larger one like stashed in a drawer or, it adds a lot of counter space.
You know what I do like is the little side mirrors.
I think it's good that you can see from the angles.
My only concern is like, doing your make up for flourescent lighting for an office which is never flattering for anyone.
And then you walk out into the real world to go get your coffee in the morning at Starbucks.
It's just not gonna translate well.
$400 even if I just had a lot of money.
It's a pretty steep price for admission.
If you don't know how to make sure everything's blended, this is not gonna do anything.
We all agree that this is a good
Mirror that does deliver the custom lighting it promises.
But for $400 this isn't a smart purchase for the casual makeup wearer or even the pros, especially without good magnification.
