If you often find yourself scrolling through Instagram wondering how the frick the Kardashians get their selfies on FUH-LEEK, the answer's simple. A default filter, an Afterlight filter, a VSCO Cam filter, probably a bit of a Facetune and an Instagram filter. Nothing major, really. But everyone knows the most important factor affecting a selfie's the lighting; hence why Kim K and co. all have these bloody LuMee cases.

A LuMee's basically a phone case surrounded by tiny LED lights designed to give you that flawless lighting whenever, wherever. And, since we've been known to take a selfie or seventy in our time, we *had* to get our hands on one to see what all the fuss is about.

What are the pros, then?

We've all been in a situation where you're like 'right, I need to CAPTURE this moment.' The only issue? You go to take a selfie and, um, can't actually see yourself. Like, legit nothing in the way of facial features it's so bloody dark.

The LuMee sorts that right out. Oh, and you can dim and brighten the little bulbs as you so wish dependant on your situation and that.

Any negatives?

Er, to sum it up:

  • Can exaggerate any shine on your face seeing as you're essentially shining a torch straight on it.
  • It makes your phone approximately 678x times bigger. These things are CHUNKY, but we'd say that's totally worth the compromise.
  • Kinda embarrassing to whip outta your pocket the first few times, then you just embrace that selfie life.

So, like, where can I get one?

Well since they're a US-based company shipping's kinda extortionate for us lot overseas.  If you're cool with that you can get one here, otherwise there are *loads* on eBay. Just make sure the seller's trusted and that, yeah?

GO ON THEN, what results can I expect?
