Bella Lumiere Launches LED SWAN Lamp to Transform the Makeup Lighting Industry

Richmond, CA – According to Makeup Lighting 101, “Proper lighting is one of the most important parts of successful makeup application and is too often overlooked.” Good makeup lighting fixtures should provide even illumination and excellent light quality.  While traditional incandescent or fluorescent makeup lights serve their purpose, they come with many inherent limitations: large breakable bulbs, ample heat generation, fixed light color, and short lifespan.  Applying the latest LED technology, Bella Lumiere is drastically changing the market by introducing an advanced LED makeup light, bringing professional grade lighting performance to everyday makeup sessions.

 

21st CENTURY TECHNOLOGY COMBINES WITH DESIGN

 

Leveraging its patented Dense Matrix LED technology instead of using conventional flat LED panels, Bella Lumiere takes miniaturization in LED lighting to the next level by smoothly blending the brilliant dime-sized LED source to a well designed table lamp. The advanced intelligent electronics lets the SWAN be controlled by simple touches and a flexible neck allows high maneuverability of the light. With a13W LED array, rated at 50,000 hours, the SWAN is cool, beautiful, and long lasting, making it a highly functional fixture for any makeup station. It will help users to effectively apply their makeup in style and comfort.

 

HIGH QUALITY SOFT LIGHTING

 

Fluorescent makeup lighting produces low quality light that tends to wash out the skin, giving it a bluish-green tone, bringing out blemishes and imperfections. (Remember how horrible people looked under inexpensive fluorescent high school gym lights?) Belle Lumiere has put great efforts in its R&D, perfecting the light spectrum radiating from its LED arrays.  It was able to produce a light with very high Color Rendering Index (CRI). Like natural sunlight, the SWAN lamp will reflect the true beautiful colors of the makeup you apply. To produce evenly distributed light, Bella Lumiere researchers engineered a removable magnetic dome-shaped diffuser that turns the intense LED beam into a gentle wash of light that falls softly onto a user’s face. The light is bright enough to use for applying makeup and soft enough to face when placed in close proximity. 

 

PICK THE PERFECT COLOR FOR THE OCCASION

 

Bella Lumiere has gone one step further and built in an adjustable color temperature feature.  With a simple touch of the base unit, you can cycle through 3 color temperatures from tungsten to daylight.  Before heading to a romantic evening date, apply your makeup under tungsten lighting so your stunning beauty is enhanced by candlelight.  If your are going to the big game with a special someone, use the daylight setting to optimize your makeup for the bright stadium lights.  The Bella Lumiere SWAN helps you to prepare your best look for any occasion. Put on your best face before you head out.

And the reviews are in on the iPhone 5

Macrumors.com has gathered the intial reviews of the iPhone 5 with iOS 6.  http://www.macrumors.com/2012/09/18/first-iphone-5-reviews-thinner-lighter-lte-stunningly-fast/

CNet Review

– “The screen size lengthening is subtle: but, like the Retina Display, you’re going to have a hard time going back once you’ve used it.”
– “LTE, in my tests, ran anywhere from 10 to 20 [Mbps], which is up to twice as fast as my wireless router’s connection at home.”
– “Still pictures taken while recording video aren’t shot using the normal 8-megapixel Web cam; they’re screen captures of the video itself. The aspect ratio is different, and the image quality’s a bit weaker.”
– “callers I reached via speakerphone noticed a crisper, clearer call on the iPhone 5 versus the iPhone 4S.”
– “The phone’s lasted roughly the whole day each day, unplugging around 8 a.m. and engaging in a mix of calling, web surfing, video playback, downloading, game playing, FaceTime calling over Wi-Fi and LTE, and even a little 4G LTE hot spot use via my MacBook Air.”

The Loop Review by Jim Dalrymple

–  “If you told me that I would be able to see another few rows of emails or more of a Web page, I don’t know that I would see the importance, but when you look at the iPhone 5, it’s more than that. You have to see it to get an idea of what can be done.”

The New York Times Review by David Pogue

– “The new phone, in all black or white, is beautiful. Especially the black one, whose gleaming, black-on-black, glass-and-aluminum body carries the design cues of a Stealth bomber.”
– “The camera is among the best ever put into a phone. Its lowlight shots blow away the same efforts from an iPhone 4S.”
– “It’s just too bad about that connector change. Doesn’t Apple worry about losing customer loyalty and sales?”

Engadget Review by Tim Stevens

– ” At 112 grams it’s 20 percent lighter than the 4S, a figure that doesn’t seem like it would make much of an impact. It does — so much so that it’s the lightness, not the bigger display or the thinness, that nearly everybody praises when first getting a chance to hold the iPhone 5 in their own hands.”
– “the Lightning connector is infinitely easier to connect. It slots in nicely and does so regardless of orientation, plugging in right-side-up or upside-down.”
– “More problematic is the speed of this new connector. ” — Based on USB 2.0, so no faster than existing connector/cable.
– Taking photo speed is much improved.
– “On our standard battery rundown test, in which we loop a video with LTE and WiFi enabled and social accounts pinging at regular intervals, the iPhone 5 managed a hugely impressive 11 hours and 15 minutes.”
– “In general, iOS 6 has seen some nice nips and tucks where it needed it. iCloud integration is tighter, Safari is better and the overall experience is more polished. But, it isn’t a major step forward in any regard. ”

Wall Street Journal Review by Walt Mossberg

– “I found the new iPhone screen much easier to hold and manipulate than its larger rivals and preferred it. In my view, Apple’s approach makes the phone far more comfortable to use, especially one-handed.”
– “The iPhone 5′s battery lasted between 9 and 12 hours every day, in mixed use. For most people, the phone would last the day without recharging.”
– “The biggest drawback I found is the new Maps app. Apple has replaced Google Maps with a new maps app of its own. ”

T3 Review by Luke Peters

– “Don’t get us wrong, it’s a miracle how Apple has shed so much excess podge and millions of people will love the lightweight design, but we preferred the more robust, weapon-like nature of the 4S.”
– “Given that iPhone 4S users can upgrade to iOS 6 and do just about everything the iPhone 5 can do, and that Android users can get similarly impressive handsets for less dosh, we reckon the smart money won’t all be going on a new iPhone this year, even if the mass market can’t get enough of it. It’s good, very good. But it’s no longer the best around.”

Pocket Lint Review by Stuart Miles

– “It is now chamfered and while that looks pretty, we’ve already noticed that on the black model the edge has started to wear, revealing the shiny silver aluminium metal underneath the “slate” coloured coating and, indeed, we’ve witnessed it on two separate models, ruling out a fluke manufacturing error.”

TechCrunch Review by MG Siegler

– “One nice side effect of the letterboxing is that the iOS system elements can still use the larger screen. So, for example, when Push Notifications come in, they flip down from the top of the screen and settle perfectly above the 3.5-inch app (as opposed to on top of it).”

Most are positive, noting the solid build quality, light weight, and blazing fast LTE performance. Would you be interested in Krromastores carrying iOS controlled LED lighting devices?  Leave your comments above…
