I’ve long been looking for a lamp to use at my desk for doing my makeup. My vintage lamp didn’t quite cut the mustard and even though I do my makeup mostly in the morning before work the actual daylight isn’t quite strong enough to keep me from looking like a clown. I had originally dreamed that the desk would be able to have some sort of lighting around the mirror, but that was a bit too difficult to pull off without some electrical plug.
My first attempt at getting lighting was with an LED flashlight that I bought at the hardware store. This did nothing but blind me.
Then I came across this little diddy when searching around. It was a great price at Amazon on special for $29.99 and seemed to have the features I was looking for so I bought it.
Introducing the OxyLED Q3. It is an ultra-thin, portable, touch control, rechargeable, LED desk lamp. Yeah. That is a lot to take in all at once, isn’t it?
It really lives up to all of those claims. The thing is crazy thin and light.
It charges via USB which I totally love because I don’t have to find an electrical socket. I haven’t actually run the battery down, but from what I’ve read it can last about 3 hours on a charge. The light itself is very bright and has a touch control with 3 levels of brightness. The flexible neck is great. I bend this in different angles for different things.
As for looks it is a cute little thing. It comes in black or white. I got the white one. If I didn’t already have the expensive vintage desk light I would be totally happy with this as a desk lamp.
Overall, it is super useful for any kind of crafting you might do or makeup. I have ended up dragging this into other rooms to use when I’m doing my nails or used it for reading sheet music even.
TL; DR – Buy! Get it at Amazon
