Swing arm shaving mirror that moves up and down as well as left and right?

My new bathroom has a wall mirror that extends far beyond both sides of the sink. If I'm going to install a shaving/make-up mirror it will need to be mounted low, basically at the same high as the sink itself.

Most swing arm mirrors only move left to right (i.e. XY plane). I'm looking for one with an arm that moves in the Z plane as well, but I'm not having much luck.

I'm open to all suggestions at this point. The only restriction is that I would like it to look somewhat reasonable in a bathroom -- I'm not going to mount a mirror on a monitor arm. :-)

Can you mount an XY mirror rotated so that it moves up and down rather than side to side? And swivel... your face... on the XY plane?

I'd like to be able to bring the mirror out over the sink itself. I suppose I could mount it on a diagonal....

Perhaps a free-standing mirror?

What about that one Battlestar Galactica shaving mirror, the Frack? I can't remember if it goes up and down, but it's here.

Also while searching I found this other one called the Vanna which appears to have one of those bendy adjustible arms, would that work?

We have a Frack; it's awesome for less than $10! But it does mount to the wall; the vertical play is about 4".

Looks like that VĂ„NNA clips to a shelf or table edge. Could work...

Didn't even think of a bendy adjustible arm. Much better than a swing arm.

Thanks!
