I'm planning to build a work desk with flip top vanity mirror.
Can you please suggest on how to chose correct hinge (doesn't go beyond ~110 degrees) and gas struts (soft open/close with stay) for the lift/flip-top design?

Welcome to the Bunnings workshop community @vikkhul. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
The most basic option could be to use a Prestige 131mm Lid Support Stay and a piano hinge. You might also be able to use the Kaboodle Slimline Cabinet Hinge Pack depending on how thick your desktop is. Here's an easy to follow step-by-step D.I.Y. tutorial on How to install door hinges and gas struts which I trust you'll find useful.
Let me mention some of our experienced woodworkers @woodalwaysworks, @r23on, @Poppop. to see if they have some other suggestions.
Please let me know if you need further information or had any questions.

Excited to show the finished product of our feature wall in the living room area of our house.
Finally we bit the bullet, bought the paint and BAM!
