In Beyond the Kingdoms, Morina shows her 'customers' a special mirror inside her beauty potion shop. It is a Mirror of Truth, revealing one's true self when one stands before it.

The mirror is large, with a golden frame. Morina says it was a gift from the Evil Queen.


Morina shows off her "true self" (a hideous woman with warts, a hunchback and a clubfoot) to her customers as proof that her potions work - she may still be that ugly on the inside, but her potions have turned her beautiful on the outside. When her customers look into the mirror, they see their young selves as they used to be.[1]

When Red and the Lost Boys break into Morina's house and see themselves in the mirror, their reflections are the same: their outer truth is as real as their inner truth.[2]
