Hard to say since you didn't say how big the bathroom is, but generally speaking, no, a lighted mirror is not enough and if it malfunctions, you have no light. If there is a shower, there should be at least a lensed recess fixture there. Not knowing if it's just a powder room or full on bath, to be safe, I would do a recessed fixture above the front of the toilet if possible.

At a minimum, I would also have a light over the shower. But as Donna Moss said, it depends on the size of the bathroom. And it also depends on the light output of the lighted mirror.
