Last year, I was fortunate to be introduced to glass nail files. If you have never tried glass nail files, you are missing out. It's the best type of files I have ever used! I highly recommend it especially if you're into nails.
This time I received a compact mirror from Mont Bleu. They were kind enough to include a scraper. I will review the scraper in a future post.
Product Review: Mont Bleu Blue Pocket Mirror ACSP-06.1

Where to purchase: Mont Bleu website
Price: $26.60

Made in Europe

Description from the website: Pocket mirrors decorated by hand with Swarovski crystals with Flower design; they are present in royal black leatherette gift box and will perfectly as gift idea.

Pocket mirrors have two, standard and magnifying mirrors. Pocket mirrors are made of quality plastic in an oval shape; they have a size of 84 x 74 mm (3.31 x 2.91 inches) and easily fit any women's purse.
Thoughts: When I first opened the package, I was not too keen on the box the mirror came in. In all honesty, it's not the most flattering/appealing box. Then again it's not about the box, it should be what's in the inside (mirror).
When you open the box, the mirror was protected with plastic. I love how they protect their products! Each product from my experience is always protected either with a box, plastic, or both in this case. When I took the mirror out of the plastic, it was jaw-dropping gorgeous!
It's a simple, shiny, silver, oval shaped mirror with a beautiful design. Since the compact is so shiny, it easily grabs fingerprints. On the other hand, it's easy to clean off the fingerprints since it's so sleek.
It doesn't seem much but when you look at the quality of the crystals, it's amazing! The Swarovski crystals are high-classed, as well as, set professionally on the mirror. Knowing how much handle it'll get from me, I love that it's high-classed. I know it will not crack, as well as, always be shiny. I also do not see glue, sticky particles on the compact. No matter how much I rub the crystals, it does not budge and get dirty.
Here's how the bottom of the compact looks like. Since the compact is so shiny, it's hard to get a good picture without anything reflecting on it.
Here's the inside of the compact. The top one is the standard, and the bottom is the magnifying. I like how it comes with both! There are times when you need a magnifying mirror for example, something went in your eyes.
Not only is this a great quality compact mirror, it's extremely light-weight and thin. I love how light the mirror is. You can throw this in your bag and do not have to worry about an extra weight that you're carrying.

Overall, I love this mirror. I even got compliments! :)

Pros:
* High quality, professional product.
* Swarovski crystals.
* Light-weight.
* Thin.
* Two types of mirrors; standard and magnifying.
* Crystals do not budge and crack easily.
* No sticky particles.
* Shiny compact and crystals.
* Easily clean the compact.

Cons:
* Not the most attractive box.
* Grabs fingerprints easily.

Would repurchase: Yes!
