Short and Sweet

Question

A simple little contrivance

One might describe me thus

When taking sides I've two

The objects not to fuss

On the one hand hold me close

I'll help you face the fact

On the other nothing's perfect

No worries, just redact

Be careful how you do it

No one should realize

But regardless how you use me

I'm too small for my size

an ebook reader

ah, thanks for the Etch A Sketch noggin joggin, it was right on the tip of my tongue but couldnt remember the name. And none of that was not meant as a hint but

nothing high tech

So none of the above. I admire your efforts. If I can formulate a single guess I feel lucky. Please keep 'em coming.

hey all - none of the above but think we're getting closer. also think parts of the riddle are meant for a pretty specific answer.

a shaving mirror?

a small object with two sides - one gives the true image "to help you face the facts". on the other side - the image is magnified revealing "nothing's perfect". But don't worry "just redact" - i.e. just put make up on or fix yourself in a way that "no on should realise".

Shoehorn?

Hey Wilson - another thoughtful answer. nice fit with the "not to fuss" clue. to me that was the most regrettable last minute edit to my original riddle. Try slotting "muss" for "fuss".

hello reginafantastic - close shave but not it. still a fantastic response indeed. there is (maybe are) part(s) of the riddle describing a specific one word answer.

A compact?
