Lumee Cell Phone Case

Have you ever wanted to take a Selfie at night and of course couldn't see your own face? Or taken a picture and the lighting just didn't turn out so good? Well Lumee is a light up cell phone case that is designed for that exact purpose! 

Whether you need to put on your makeup and get better lighting, add a little light to your Facetime or Skype sessions, or take brighter selfies, this product is what you want. 

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and this case fit snug onto my phone. The Lumee appears like a Vanity mirror - the lights are all on the edges of the mirror. 

Operating the device is amazingly easy!! There is one button on the back of the case, you press and the lights come on. If you want a dimmer light, all you need to do is hold the button down to the desired lighting. 

I will say that on the highest setting, wow, it is bright! Almost blinding if you are not expecting it! This product uses warm LED lights so you do not have to worry about the case or lights heating up around your phone. I was worried about that but after some research on the company's website, my worry was put to ease!

My package included the Lumee Case and a charger. SCORE! The charger also works with my cell phone so that was an added bonus! 

When I received, I found it was completely charged already. I tested the battery by leaving the case lights on for over 2 hours and it stayed bright and lit! 

My only complaint with the product and it was more of a personal preference, was removing the product from my phone. The instructions advise you to press the edges of the case down and your phone would pop out... well it was a little harder for me to do then I expected and I felt as though I might damage my phone or the case. It did not happen but you do need a little bit of strength to remove it. 

I tested this product in many different aspects. I took pictures in complete darkness with and without using the lights, I dropped the case to check durability (not a single dent, scratch or mark on the case or my phone), I used as a flashlight (worked better than most apps you can download) and took pictures during regular lighting just to see the difference. 

Overall, this product would be an amazing gift to someone who loves taking pictures of themselves and who spends time doing Skype/Facetime sessions. I took this along on a recent vacation and most of the girls fell in love with it. Look out Lumee, you may a few more orders coming in shortly! 

I appreciate Lumee letting me review this product and look forward to seeing what upgrades and new products they come up with in the future. I think this is an amazing idea and a great product.

The case is designed to fit on iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and Samsung Galaxy s5 cases. They are available for purchase in Black, White, Periwinkle (which is was what I received), Orchid and Nantucket Red for $44.95 at


  1. Interesting and a bit costly - thanks for the share. #ProductReviewParty

  2. My 28 year old son would think this is awesome. I'll have to let him know about it. Thank-you for the information & review. :)

  3. My kids like to take pictures of their self so this be great for them

  4. What a cool idea! I wonder if Lumee is the only company that makes this? I'd love to get this for my BFF's birthday! scain54(at)aol(dot)com

    1. I did a little research and haven't found one like the Lumee...

  5. Now this is very cool! My kids would love this! #ProductReviewParty

  6. Sounds like something I might like because I take selfies with my hubby and kids when we're at events and it can be hard to get good lighting. Pinning this, thanks for sharing!

  7. Clever idea! I'm not big into selfies. I think they are meant for the young. Us oldies don't want to take a photo that close to our face. Lol! Love this idea though! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. I agree that this is probably for teenagers more than anything! I'm not a selfie fan either!

  8. I bought one, after having seen Peter Shankman use one at an event. My one complaint is that I didn't realize that this is not also a phone-charging case, which I misinterpreted it to be. So it does not obvious the need for carrying one of my many external chargers and/or my backup battery (I'm on a Galaxy S5, so I can still do that). Also, difficult to determine how much protection you get. It might be something that I carry with me and use when needed, as opposed to always keeping my phone in.

  9. I'm not sure where you're getting your information, but great. I need to spend some time learning or understanding more. Thanks for the fantastic info I was looking for!!
