Lumee Phone Case Light vs. Beauty Ring Light | Selfie Light

1304 ratings | 170040 views
❤ OPEN FOR MORE INFO❤ NikkieTutorials talks about a selfie ring light in one of her latest videos so I thought I'd compare my phone ring light to my Lumee light up phone case. BTW, the one she talks about is battery operated (you need 2AA batteries). The one I have is rechargeable via a USB cord. UPDATED VIDEO ON NEW PHONE RING LIGHTS & CASES NOW AVAILABLE HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYmLs7MpO4g #NotSponsored I bought both of these with my own money.

Great review, and still relevant for 2018!

I paid 2 euro for one on wish (very good)

E.L.F. made a ring light for $12 that does pretty much the same thing.

Thank you so much! The little ring light is now down to about nine dollars. Have a great day!😃
Alanna The amazing (9 months ago)
I saw that ring light for 7.99
YayOrNayNicole (9 months ago)
They have gone down in price so much since I shot this video! I think this one is now under $10. :)
joannej_1974 Youtube (11 months ago)
I just got one similiar to the round clip on from e.l.f. for $12.00. It takes 2 AAA batteries (included) and also works on my Samsung tablet! It makes such a difference in my photos, and you can turn it around, too. They have near identical ones at Walmart.com and Amazon for even less ($7.00) as well as the one like you used with the USB for around $12- $15.00.
YayOrNayNicole (11 months ago)
Great to know! Prices have gone down a lot since I made this video (thank goodness) but I have found that the ring light (Beauty) that I have is much brighter than some others I have tried. I'll have to try some more to find a dupe. Thanks so much for watching!

Can you post 3 selfies .... 1 no light at all. One with the lumie and the 3rd with the light ring
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
Hi Nelli, I did it in another video - it is near the end that I have the photos. Hope that helps. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgBZvm1sfyc Have a great weekend!

You’re awesome. Came here for the ring light review. You’re pretty and you look like Amy Schumer a little.
Monse Ibarra (1 year ago)
U got ur ring light for 20 dallors i got mine fro 9$
Stephanie Hudson (1 year ago)
It's astonishing that the one thing we need to know about these products isn't discussed or shown: what your selfies look like with the different lights. ugh
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
+Stephanie Hudson Hi Stephanie, I filmed this kind of spur of the moment and thought showing it working on while filming was a good idea. Afterwards I realized from the viewers that they wanted to see selfies so I filmed a follow up video, part two to this, so you can check that out if you’d like. https://youtu.be/OgBZvm1sfyc

I bought a selfie light iPhone case on wish for 5$. It's the exact same only thing is that i doesn't say lumee
Kassi Kandi (1 year ago)
I feel like the ring is also more useful because it can be used on both front and back cameras, which is useful for vloggers.

Have you compared the lumee to the casemate selfie case???
Candace Elenez (1 year ago)
can't wait to see it! I've been wanting to buy it....but i need a real person review first lol
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
Hi Candace, I did not know that it existed. Thanks for letting me know about it! I just ordered one so I'll be shooting a video about it soon!
Mari Vega (1 year ago)
I prefer the ring light because the Lumee case is so hard to take off

ACRAWLB4UWALK (1 year ago)
Do you think ring light would fit or work with a tablet instead of a cell phone?
ACRAWLB4UWALK (1 year ago)
Alright gotcha!!
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
ACRAWLB4UWALK That is so sweet of you! I pretty much just do YouTube and Instagram. No website yet. If anyone you know enjoys beauty and cooking send them over to my channel to subscribe 😊. Best of luck with your project. Please note that this gives very good light when you're fairly close to the iPad or phone. If you're shooting at something 6 feet away you might need something more powerful.
ACRAWLB4UWALK (1 year ago)
Well that's what's up, you've just solved my problem and I'm all about WIN WIN, so do you have a website or anything that I could promote for you?
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
ACRAWLB4UWALK it sure would! It will clip onto anything about the thickness of the cell phone. Can clip it onto my thumb if that gives you an idea of the range that it will clip onto. 😃
Aaahriii (1 year ago)
I already have 3 of the ring lights and I don't really like it because of the white light. Now that you made that comparison, I think I will get a Lumee! Thanks darling! White light aren't flattering at all esp when you have a lot of beauty shots. It's too white and bright. Hurts my eyes and I can't bring it out because my bag is super small hahaha! So Lumee it is!
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
I am so glad that my video helped! Good point about small bags too! xoxo - Nicole
Ericka Duval (1 year ago)
will it block my back camera
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
Hi Ericka, you can adjust it however you want so you just make sure not to clip it over the rear camera. :)
NCTube Raw (1 year ago)
hi, is it good for shooting videos? Like reviewing products videos
NCTube Raw (1 year ago)
Yay or Nay Nicole yes it did! watched the follow up Video!!
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
Hi, I think if you have good natural light and added the little ring light you could get away with it and it would look pretty good but if it is night time, it would be better to have some additional lighting. I did a follow up video to this one that may be helpful in regards to this question. Overall, if you want really good lighting I'd use this plus something else but for on the go, live streaming and situations where you don't need perfect lighting it is wonderful! Hope that helps!
I can see a massive dark zone with the lumi light! Thanks for comparing!
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
You are very welcome! Thanks for watching. :)
Chase Whorton (1 year ago)
You can get one of those cases for $14 - $15 on eBay (not the one she has). And I ring for $4 - $5 on eBay (not the one she has).

I got a blue ring light on Amazon for $10 and free shipping
Precious X (1 year ago)
You could also try Aliexpress cheaper there! I live in the U.K so it's like 3.20 which I guess in dollars would be round 4 dollas or five.

Tanie Baker (1 year ago)
Nice!! could it work for a Iphone 5?
Precious X (1 year ago)
Well, all you gotta do is type in 'ringlight for iPhone 5, whis is what I did for my 5s and it wors totally fine.
Tanie Baker (1 year ago)
I wanna get it but I'm a little nervous since the 5 is a lot smaller then the 6
YayOrNayNicole (1 year ago)
Tanie Baker it should, it works fine on my daughters iPhone 6 😃

thanks for this video. Instead of buying a $200 standing ring light I can just use this instead for my videos 👏👏👏
jay smith (1 year ago)
pjacksone I’m still buying one for 60
WhatsUpC (1 year ago)
pjacksone Which product did you purchase and does it work for you
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
I think if you film in front of a window for natural light it will look nice and it will certainly add some oomph if it is darker. It made a huge difference when I was live streaming and could not use real lighting because I was running all over a convention center.
Teak Peak (2 years ago)
I bought one for my girlfriend. It's also chargeable but seems different from the one in this video. It works well too. Last time I bought it at a discount price. I'm not sure whether they still provide promo codes. http://amzla.com/qe3vnfm0wxfc

Kinga N. (2 years ago)
Which one takes better lit pictures ? Too bad you didn't show examples of actual pictures with both :(
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Kinga, I did a follow up video where I do that. The ring light did better overall unless you want a golden light. Here is the link to the follow up video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgBZvm1sfyc
DemonClaw (2 years ago)
As someone who has no interesting in selfies, curious about just use of this for light if using your phone for video, is it hard to see on your phone if you'd turn it on the side (phone) and put the light on middle then so hard to see on screen and/or would it accidently push a button(?) Thanks if Nicole or anyone who has used it has tried it :)
Stephanie Lee (3 months ago)
I just ordered one I'm so excited.
DemonClaw (2 years ago)
It did, thank you for answering.
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
You can use it for video. I do that all the time. It is great for live streaming. If you do it in landscape mode you will block your screen a bit but you can just clip it to the top part. I have not had problems with accidentally pushing buttons. Hope that helps. :)
Four Queue (2 years ago)
also, the beauty light can stay on if you need extra light for taking videos
PeriquinTV (2 years ago)
can u have a case on your phone and use the light ring?
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
You sure can! I clip it right on top of the case and I have a pretty thick protective case. :)
Ivy Boyd (2 years ago)
Thank you for comparing these!
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
You are so welcome Ivy. They are such handy little things. I keep that ring light in my purse a lot. :)

pwede sa android?
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Sophia, The ring light clicks onto any phone. Check the Lumee site for what they have for Androids. They seem to change their stock of what they carry. Have a great weekend!

Julie Wickstrom (2 years ago)
No way Nicole! I was at the Periscope summit too! Do you use Periscope a lot? I used to broadcast every day but I only do it occasionally now. Thanks for this video! I'm debating on which one to get for filming my YouTube videos. I'll probably go with the ring light because there are some cheaper ones on Amazon.
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Julie, You were? Small world! I hope to go to the next one. I don't scope as much now but am on here and there. I do a scope for ParachuteTV1 every few weeks also. I've also played with FB Live which is fun. I find the ring light to be more versatile than the Lumee. Hope to see you around :).
L8dykickass (2 years ago)
They should make that case into a protective waterproof case so you don't have to switch between cases :o
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
That would be fantastic!!! Love that idea.

Cindy G (2 years ago)
I really appreciate this review. I purchased the Beauty Fill Light from Amazon last week and love it! Then my followers on IG started saying they liked the phone cases, and I was thinking about buying one. I don't think I will now. As you mentioned, it's not really going to protect my phone. The only benefit it will provide is convenience if I'm out somewhere publicly and don't want to pull out a clip on light for everyone to see (which won't happen). LOL Thanks for this review!
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Cindy, I am glad it is helpful. I just put up a part two where I shot a video when I was at a hotel with not really great lighting and only had these two lights. That one may be of interest to you too. The Lumee is a lot of money if you don't really have a reason for having it. People stare when I use the Lumee about as much as they stare at the ring light. I bought it before I knew the little ring lights even existed. What is your Instagram handle so I can follow you? :) Nicole
Aarian (2 years ago)
the ring light can be used for iPhone 5s?
Abby J (1 year ago)
Aarian Martinez it can also work on a laptop or tablet because it just clips on!
BRISA BRISA (2 years ago)
yes it will work on any size phone
Quyen Nguyen (2 years ago)
Thank you for this. I was struggling do much between which to get x
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Happy I could help Quyen! ave a great weekend :).
Fabiola (2 years ago)
Have you tried the ring light not as a "selfie'", ex; When I take Flash pics with my Iphone its mess, the flash on there looks horrid and doesn't do my makeup justice lol If was to say "hey can you take a pic of my friends and instead of using flash, i would use the ring light? I think I made this complicated but I hope you understand :)
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi, I have used it facing the other way and it is really nice. I've used it for photos and video in the "non-selfie" mode (rear camera - not front facing) I think it is way better than a flash. I totally get what you mean with flash wrecking the way you look. :)
Miss Myself (2 years ago)
Great review, will the ring light fit over a otterbox case?
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Thanks so much! The ring light would fit right over an OtterBox. It fits right over my large case. :)
reomadiga (2 years ago)
Hi Nicole It could better if you compare both real pictures and see the light differences :) Grettings from Perú!!
Kerem Boyalı (1 year ago)
I bought from here, it's rechargeable, multi-color and long lasting. https://www.variatoshop.com/products/selfie-flash-portable-rechargeable
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi, Great idea! I just took photos with both and I will do a follow up video in the next few weeks. I am actually going to visit Perú this summer. My husband has a friend who lives in Lima so we are going there and then will also be doing a tour that takes us to Machu Picchu, Cusco etc.  I cannot wait!!! <3 Nicole
Astrid Larasati (2 years ago)
hey, nice review! I just ordered the ring light. but I have a question. Did it make a circle on your eyes like a normal ring light?
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Astrid, It does put the little circle in your eyes just like a big ring light does. Hope you enjoy your light. :)
Melissa G (2 years ago)
Great video!!
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Thank you so much Melissa!
Blu Peake (2 years ago)
Would either of these be able to be used as gold lighting for filming YouTube videos or am I better off sticking to natural light?
Blu Peake (2 years ago)
thanks x
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
H Blui, I think it could be used to add some light if you are in front of a window using natural light but it is small and would not be a substitute for any regular lighting if you are shooting without natural light. It is small since it clips onto a phone. I hope that helps. :)
Blu Peake (2 years ago)
Good not gold
I'm always up for lighting help - thank you!

Smurfett Smurf (2 years ago)
I love the little clip on light/..... My goal is to ourchase a ring light however i never knw which lighting to get for putting on makeup... I always see "iridencent" but i can never find "natural" does it even exist?
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Lupe, So I don't use a ring light. I ordered one when I started shooting and realized I needed lighting but it showed up broken so I ran out to Target and got a light with three areas to put bulbs and used a "natural light" bulb I'd used from my son's desk lamp. I now have two of these light setups and place one on the right and one on the left. Here is the link to the bulb I use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002X7XEYM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Hope that helps!

Ok that is pretty cool, I think I want that ring light, I need major protection on my phone, you know one of those ugly cases,lol,but it is pink, ha ha so the ring light would work better! Thank you my friend and I hope you are having an awesome weekend! Love and Hugs! XOXO
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
Hi Susan, I used to have a Griffin Survivor case that was huge and pink and white. Mine needs protection too and the Lumee while it gives of lovely light is not good protection. Love the little ring light. I had the BEST time at Vidcon. How was your weekend? <3 Nicole
SouthernMel (2 years ago)
I didn't know about the little ring light. Great to know!! Thanks
YayOrNayNicole (2 years ago)
They are handy little things for sure! :)
