A sample was provided with your letter. The Ladybug Beauty Magic Light up Mirror (item #941046A) is a decorative light up plastic cosmetic stand measuring approximately eight inches in height. The stand has a circular base and a tower that is topped with a three-dimensional ladybug figurine. Three small lipsticks (orange, pink and purple) are inserted into the three compartments molded into the base of the stand. The plastic wings of the ladybug shape at the top of the stand open up to reveal a round plastic mirror with a reflecting surface area approximately 3 ½ inches in diameter. The lighted surface on which the mirror is mounted is battery operated. The stand and the lipsticks are packaged together for retail sale, and they are classified together as a set in the tariff provision applicable to the article that imparts the essential character of the set. The essential character of this set is imparted by the plastic stand with mirror.

The sample is being returned as you requested.
