One of my Keepers is the "Mirror on the Wall" and I was thinking
of giving it the ability to let the player who owns it look at
the hands of other players during his turn. Does anyone think
this is too powerful or have any other objections?

Way back when in Fluxx 1.0, this was implemented as a New Rule
called "Eye Bonus". If the rule was out and somebody had the Eye
keeper in front of them, during that person's turn they could
look at the hand of one other player.

This didn't turn out to be very powerful or useful. Unless you
have "Trade Hands" it really doesn't help you much to know what
is in another's hand. Also, many players frequently forgot to
use the ability, since it was pretty rare for both cards to be
out at the same time.

The Eye Bonus card was removed after the first edition.
