For situations with sufficient ambient lighting, a non-lighted makeup mirror can be a great choice. This applies to bathrooms with adequate lighting. Non-lighted makeup mirrors have the advantage of being slimmer or thinner. Frameless mirrors are available with the reflection mirror as the only visible surface. The absence of bulky wiring or electrical components makes it possible to be sleek.
Magnification power of non-lighted mirrors can be as low or as high as magnifications of lighted mirrors. Non-lighted mirrors can be mounted on walls or freestanding.
Technically, a backlit mirror refers to a type of lighted mirror. The lights in backlit mirrors are located behind them. A lighted mirror, on the other hand is an illuminated mirror that has LED lights shining from the front and not the back.
