I recently built LEGO Creator 5770: Lighthouse Island which features a clever trick to build the lighthouse's lantern, using stickers on on a Slope Brick 2x2 and Slope Top 1x2x2/3:

Stickers on slopes
Step 54 from Lighthouse Island Instruction Manual 1/3

It works reasonably well, but I'd like something better. Are there any official mirrored (or prismatic, but this seems even less likely) LEGO bricks?

I have updated my answer to include the first official mirror LEGO piece. –  Ambo100 Nov 29 at 18:16

my little sister had a lot of LEGO Belville, wich has some glossy silver bricks and parts: belville

see the bin and the decoration-bricks on top of the grids - but i never saw or owned "normal" bricks or plates of this color wich could be used to build a mirror or something.

There are also chrome bricks, such as the LEGO lightsaber hilt, that is hard to see your face on, but they are reflective.

Bigger chromed pieces were available in a Special Edition Naboo Starfighter. Shiny! –  Joubarc Oct 26 '11 at 13:55

The short answer to your question is no. There are however highly polished bricks available in chrome and gold that reflect more light then others. These bricks tend to be rare and expensive.

There is a non-purist solution that works well using metalic paper or tin foil which can be found in craft stores and supermarkets respectively. The material is relatively cheap, flexible, can be as small or large as you like and provides a decent reflective surface. You can use double sided tape to stick the material onto slopes or you can hold them in place using bricks.

UPDATE

The Detective’s Office & Barber Shop (10246) includes the first mirror in a LEGO set. Until it is released on the 1st January 2015, it is very difficult to say if this part includes any rear studs that can be used to attach it to other bricks.

I had some gold bars from a LEGO City police set.

They are ten 1x2 Metalic Gold tiles in this LEGO Agents set:

I will also add that these bricks' reflections aren't diffuse - that is, they're as reflective as the back side of an iPhone, so they'd probably work pretty well as mirrors.

I have this set and the gold bars are the kind that are not very reflective. –  Ambo100 Nov 29 '11 at 18:30
    
@Ambo100 Oh, really? Mine are reflective. At least, I hope they still are. Haven't seen 'em for two years. :( So are yours like the LEGO Indiana Jones golden idol's material, then? –  Peter Cassetta Dec 3 '11 at 4:48

LEGO have produced prisms. Here's one type:

There is at least one Clikits set that contains an actual mirror: 7504 Friendship Frame / Mirror

The actual part is Clikits Mirror Insert 4 x 4, fits Frame clikits011 which is a bit large for use in the Creator Lighthouse but is an official LEGO mirror part.

There is the 'Chrome Silver Dish 2 x 2 x 2/3 Light Reflector' available from BrickLink. enter image description here

This piece was available in many sets, one of which was the 3801 - Ultimate Accessory Set for MindStorms where it is used as a reflector around a 'White Electric, Light Brick 1 x 2 with Single Side Light' element.
