Tell them what they won, Bob! The HiMirror Slide comes with 16GB of RAM, an 8-core ARM processor, an 8MP CMOS camera, WiFi connectivity and HiMirror Cloud.

Makeup maestros who want something with a little more “ooph” can opt for the latest iteration of the HiMirror series: the HiMirror Mini Premium X, priced at $209.

The HiMirror logo is at the top of the light panel on the right. The unit is ultra lightweight at 1.9 pounds and measures 8.4 x 9.4 x 0.97 inches.

However, appearances can be deceiving. The HiMirror Slide is more than just a bright and cute makeup mirror to practice shaping your face like Jackie Aina. There’s a small handle on the back of the device that allows you to slide the mirror panel open (to the right) to reveal an 8-inch TFT LCD touchscreen that looks and functions like a Tablet.

A high-resolution camera sits in the upper-right corner of the touchscreen’s outer perimeter. The menu, mirror illumination and rear touch keys are positioned at the bottom. Two pin-sized holes, located at either end of the light panel on the left, are the device’s high-sensitivity microphone. There’s also a high-performance speaker on the back, along with the power button, power jack, reset button, and a USB 3.0 Type-A port.

The unit’s foldable plastic swivel stand allows for portrait or landscape placement; it’s ideal for tucking away or packing in a carry-on or checked bag for that much-needed glamorous getaway. The stand could be stronger, but it does the job. There is a safety lock on the back of the HiMirror slide that provides stability when using the mirror with the sliding panel extended when you want to get your Nyma Tang fix. Youtube.

HiMirror Slide Features

This thing is feature rich. Owning a HiMirror Slide smart vanity mirror is like having a 24/7 skin care, beauty and makeup assistant.

Let’s start with the HiMirror Slide skin analyzer: a skin analysis engine that takes a picture of your face with the tablet’s camera and uses its patented skin analysis algorithm to summarize your skin’s needs. skin. The skin analyzer then gives advice on the causes and product recommendations based on your skin concerns, such as dark spots, fine lines, large pores, etc. You can favorite and/or buy the suggested product(s).

A word of warning: you may only want to use the skin analyzer when you feel exceptionally confident, as the skin summary is brutal. I am 51 years old. I know I have fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots to contend with, but hearing him from what sounds like the stern voice from the GPS after I miss one of his directions (“Turn left. Turn left Recalculate!”) made me want to down a Tony’s Chocolonely Dark Milk Toffee Pretzel chocolate bar.

Makeup Studio is another awesome feature of HiMirror Slide. It’s a virtual makeover tool that uses augmented reality, allowing you to try on a full makeup face virtually. You can swap out your favorite colors and adjust the shading as you go. The only problem is that there is no product name on any of the makeup products. I even tried entering Makeup Studio color numbers into a search engine, but nothing came up. This design flaw prevents the Makeup Studio from being a truly beneficial tool, but it’s still fun to play with.

Beauty Box is my favorite feature of the HiMirror Slide. It’s a skincare product management system that streamlines your skincare routine by keeping track of the products you use (by scanning them or adding them manually in the Beauty Tracker). Box) and monitoring the progress of your skin scan issues over time as you make adjustments to your routine. . For me, that’s it. I really like being able to enter not only my skincare products, but also my skincare devices and corresponding expiration dates, which I use as checkpoints to assess which parts of my skincare routine of the skin work.
